Since the debut of OS X Mountain Lion, Growl users have been waiting patiently for an upgrade to their favorite notification software, which promises to integrate tightly with Notification Center. Judging from a new blog post, we won't have long to wait.
Adobe is on a tear this week, adding Retina Display support to its Photoshop Touch app for the iPad and now the Creative Suite 6 version of Premiere Pro as well, which also adds support for the latest MacBook Pro GPU.
With a week to go before Amazon holds a media event, the e-tailer has announced its best-selling Kindle Fire is now sold out -- which certainly sounds more like "we stopped making them because a new model is coming" to us. While that seven-inch slate was quite nice a year ago, Google's Nexus 7 has pretty much made many of us forget all about the Kindle Fire, so Amazon is going to have to pull a real rabbit out of its hat to wow us once again. In the meantime, let's get caught up with the day's news for this Thursday, August 30, 2012.
Although the latest version won't be available to the public until next week, Parallels has announced the immediate availability of Parallels Desktop 8 for existing users as a $49.99 upgrade from the company's website.
August in tech is like August in politics: Everyone's just sort of holding their breath.

Your Mac may look nothing like it did back in the '80s, but retro is in and enterprising companies are finding all kinds of ways for us to relive the past. Take for instance the news this week that SimCity is returning to the Mac, or even ThinkGeek's new Padintosh case for the iPad, both which hail from a bygone era. Old or new, we've got something for everyone in today's news recap for Wednesday, August 15, 2012.
If you've seen the pics of the purported next-generation iPhone built from allegedly leaked parts, you probably noticed it looks a whole lot like the iPhone 4/4S. While this may seem to poke at the persistent rumors of a Steve-overseen overhaul of the 5-year-old handset, the idea that Apple needed to ditch its glass-and-metal enclosure to transform the iPhone was always a bit farfetched.
If you're still sitting there trying to figure out if you should move your AT&T family plan to one of the company's Mobile Shared packages next month, now might be a good time to take a break and let your eyes feast upon something else -- you know, like all the juicy tech news making headlines for this mid-week hump day. And hey, look at that -- we happen to have some for you right now on this Wednesday, July 18, 2012.
Doesn't it feel a little bit like the calm before the storm? We pretty much know that OS X Mountain Lion will be arriving on our favorite Mac computer next week unless Apple pulls a rabbit out of its hat later this week, and the tech world is enjoying a somewhat quiet lull otherwise. But that doesn't mean we can't scrounge up some worthy contenders for today's recap, so read on for everything happening this Tuesday, July 17, 2012.
