    Cobook, A Better Address Book For Mac, Now Syncs With Google Contacts

    Cobook, a Mac contact management app which offers an improved experience over the default OS X address book (at least, that’s a popular opinion), has released an update today which introduces a notable new feature: the ability to sync with Google Contacts. That’s a great selling point for this free software application, which previously pulled in contacts from the Mac’s… Read More

    New Skype For Mac Update Finally Includes Full Screen Mode, Automatic Updates

    I lean on Skype (and Macs) pretty heavily, so when a fairly substantial update for the VOIP/messaging service goes live, my ears tend to perk up. The new Skype 5.6 update has me especially tickled — it’s now available for folks of the Mac persuasion, and it thankfully packs a handful of bugfixes as well as a slew of new (and arguably overdue) features.

    Retickr, a social news reader application for Mac OS X, received a big update today, as well as a new round of funding. The startup just closed its Series A of $1.5 million led by the Lamp Post Group, the investors who had previously put $150,000 into the company’s seed round. The app, which combines RSS, social networking updates and news, is not your standard feed reader, but… Read More

  • Apple’s Mac Attack On China

    Apple’s Mac Attack On China

    Whenever you see those photos and stories of the crazy crowds at Apple stores in China, they seem to always be about the launch of a new iPhone. But if Apple has its way, soon those masses will be clamoring for something else as well: Mac computers. Apple CEO Tim Cook, speaking earlier this week at the Goldman Sachs conference, noted that China accounted for $13 billion in sales last year for… Read More

    Chrome Lion Full Screen Support Is Ready To Go In Canary, Both With Tabs And Without

    Following up on our earlier coverage of Google’s Chrome browser for OS X Lion, it looks like development is moving along faster than expected. Specifically, swiping gesture support has already been fully implemented (in the right direction now too), and now a proper full screen mode has hit the Canary build of the browser as well. Shortly after Lion’s launch a few weeks ago, we… Read More

    Apple Destroys Q3 Earnings Estimates With Record Revenues, Profit, iPhone, And iPad Sales

    Following Google’s stellar earnings last week, Apple has today announced their own earnings for their Q3 period. As expected, they’re good. Massively good. Apple set several new records in terms of both revenues and sales. Most notably, Apple’s revenue was a staggering $28.57 billion — over $5 billion ahead of their (always low) guidance, and almost $4 billion ahead of… Read More

    Right on the heels of releasing Skype 5.5 for Windows, featuring deep Facebook integration, the company has just rolled out a new version of its voice and video calling software solution for Mac. Skype 5.2 for Mac is available now and is much more worth the download than the 5.1 updated version of the beta Mac software released back in November 2010.

    Google Chrome Canary About To Hit OS X — Chrome 16 Due Before End Of Year

    Users of Google Chrome are probably aware of the three channels you can use depending on how cutting edge you want to be (and how much you mind bugs): Dev, Beta, Stable. But ever since last year, there’s actually been a fourth channel as well that’s less publicized: Canary. Sadly, it has been a Windows-only build until now. But it looks like that’s about to change. Given the… Read More

  • Boxcar Pushes Its Way Onto The Mac

    My love of Boxcar should be pretty clear at this point. Because I’m an information junkie, it’s probably the app I use the most on my iPhone/iPad besides Safari. And earlier this year, they brought the notification goodness to the web as well. Now they’re taking the next step: native Mac support. Yes, Boxcar is here for the Mac. The app resides in your toolbar and when… Read More
