Though we've never used it ourselves (hey, we're supposed to be Mac gurus, right?), Apple's One to One service for new Mac buyers seems like a great way for newbies to get up to speed -- but it might be a little less worth the money now.

Our inbox recently got hit with a couple sad reminders of how services can roar onto the scene and then whimper away with far less fanfare over time. Such was the case for Google Wave, which is being turned off on April 30, and the fate of Posterous remains a big question mark.

You can then access these services remotely on your Mac or an iOS device.
It’s been some time since the tech press has had a field day reporting on a high-profile app rejection -- and thankfully, this isn’t one of them. However, the developers of the free TrapCall did spent 201 days in App Store review hell -- probably second only to the official Google Voice app, maybe?
Announced last week, Apple’s new policies for subscription billing appear to have raised the hackles of publishers more than it’s made them happy -- and questions remain as to exactly who is going to have to use the option in the first place.
