You can create and edit documents in the command line with nano, but what about printing? Well, the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) is built into every Mac, and includes the ability to print files directly from the command line. This week, we’ll show you exactly how it’s done.
I feel a bit lazy picking out today's free app from the App Store's front page, but this one was too cool not to share. ArtCircles helps you discover classic and current artwork on your iPad in a dynamic way.

Luckily there are more than a just few services to print our Instagram photos. Here's how you too can print your Instagrams and turn them into beautiful works of art.
