The summer is starting to heat up. We just got off the All Things Digital Conference and we're winding up for the final stretch before WWDC 2012 crushes out the news cycle. Is it the calm before the storm? Not quite, as a few news waves were made and we found a few apps worth your notice. Plus, you could have bid on these killer shades.
Whenever I see the word "vintage" on new product, I tend to scoff a little bit. In the case of XtremeMac's Vintage Sleeve for the new iPad, I definitely let out a groan. But once I took the sleeve out of the box and placed my iPad inside, I began to give the product a little credit for what it's good at: protecting my expensive tablet device.
Early photographs keep surprisingly well compared to more modern dye-based prints from the 70s and 80s. But they do eventually deteriorate – the paper gets creased and mottled by mold, which thrives in the damp garages and lofts where most of us keep our old family photos.

Sooner or later, everything ends up on eBay. A human kidney? Check. A walk-on part in an Ally McBeal episode? Check. A grilled cheese sandwich with the face of the Virgin Mary scorched onto the bread? Check. The Mac Museum of Franklin Park, New Jersey? You'd better believe it.

We're suckers for new Apple tech. Every time Apple releases some new
kit, we immediately start whining about how much we want it and coming
up with reasons why our existing Macs need to be replaced. But we also

collection that serves no other purpose than to sit on a shelf looking
cool. Now we want to see your vintage gear.
