Though it draws heavy inspiration from a particular sci-fi franchise well known for boldly sending a spaceship full of uniformed crew where no one has gone before, Star Command doesn't fiddle around with any namby-pamby prime directive. The galaxy is full of danger and backstabbing aliens looking to get a piece of your sweet tech. Sure, diplomacy is sometimes an option with the strange crafts you encounter in this slick pixel-based quest, but it's just way more fun to blow your adversaries out of the stars or die trying in an often intense and chaotic adventure through the cosmos.
Pulling together a pair of entertainment juggernauts, Angry Birds Star Wars does a stellar job of blending elements from both properties in clever and well-executed manners, making this mega-mash-up much more than a mere cash-in – though it's sure to bring in plenty of that for its cunning creators. Splitting its focus between the classic series fling-and-smash approach and the newer gravitational pull twist established in Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Star Wars utilizes classic characters, scenery, and scenarios from the original film trilogy, recasting the colorful birds as iconic heroes like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.
With SSDs becoming the norm, keeping your Mac’s disk clean is vital to ensuring that you always have space for apps and important projects.

If your co-workers don’t seem to be getting much done today, you might want to take a peek at their smartphone or tablet -- Angry Birds Space has touched down in the App Store, promising to jettison your productivity like so much space junk.
Sometimes, there are applications on your Mac that devour up all that precious disk space, leaving you with not much storage for documents, music, and other applications. These apps sometimes do so without any indication, which can be frustrating when you're in desperate need of a few extra megabytes. Read on to find out how to reclaim that disk space and keep those apps from occupying your Mac.
So we’ve looked at the basics when it comes to freeing up drive space, but if that didn’t do the job, several Mac apps will help you to detect and remove space-wasters. These tools range from system scans that will pick out very large files and list them in order of size to very specific apps that target common drive space thieves (like app-related files that linger after you’ve deleted an app) and bring them to justice via the Trash can. Then there’s the third kind of tool—one that’s part software, part service. Rather than removing large files completely, these offerings provide a way for you to move them to a secure storage space on the web. We’ll show you the four most effective ways to use these apps.
