Let’s get ready to turkeeeeeeyyyyy! Okay, maybe that’s a bit too excitement for gathering around the table with loved ones and carving up some unlucky bird, but it’s Thanksgiving Eve and the anticipation of a huge meal on Thursday coupled with the contact high of Black Friday sales must have us buzzing.

Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead! Okay, maybe it’s not quite a celebration from that legendary scene from The Wizard of Oz, but Adobe’s announcement November 9 that it would be shuttering further development for mobile Flash should certainly be good news to Munchkins -- er, developers -- everywhere, not to mention much-needed relief for long-suffering end users forced to endure such tyranny on their mobile devices.

If you’re like us, you’ve been too busy playing with iOS 5.0.1 today to get any work done or just keep up with the daily news. And who can blame you?

The good news is, now that you’ve done that and still have plenty of battery left to spare, you can still catch up on the day’s happenings. Here’s the latest for Thursday, November 10, 2011.
Happy Firefox 8 Day! Yes, it’s been six weeks (give or take) already since the last full version of Firefox landed on our computers, which just goes to show you how fast time flies when you’re having fun. Of course, after several rapid-fire releases in a row this year, Firefox is kind of running out of gas when it comes to new features -- but that doesn’t mean there isn’t other interesting stuff happening around the interwebs to thrill and entertain us. Here’s the latest for Tuesday, November 8, 2011.
Happy Halloween to MacLife.com readers! We don’t have any particularly spooky things featured in this edition of the daily recap (unless you’re a Mac Pro fan), but there are plenty of treats in store for you with Plex 2.0 now in the App Store and some iOS 5 technology reportedly making the leap to OS X Lion one day soon.

It's the Halloween weekend and while some people we know will be out waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we'll be inside gaming our scared little butts off, shooting zombies and trying to escape the minions of evil. And we'll be sitting down with a nice cup of steaming hot apple cider because this week was full of hot Apple stories. And there was tons of scoring hot game news this week. See ya on the flipside.
Hard to believe that Wednesday is here again, but it arrives with some cool new stuff to download, rumors of an Apple solar farm going up in North Carolina, Nokia finally announcing Windows Phone handsets and those lucky San Francisco residents getting to buy from Apple.com and pick up in a nearby store.
