Pear Note 2.0 out now, features web sharing and a revamped UI

Useful Fruit Software has released Pear Note 2.0, a new version of the very powerful note-taking app for the Mac. Sang wrote a great post about the app late last year -- personally, I like just sitting down with a pad of paper and taking notes, but Pear Note helps you capture everything about a...

Apple wins design patents

Apple picked up quite a few pending design patents this week -- most of them are pretty old, for products that have released but were simply waiting on the official patent. You can see the whole list over on Macsimum News -- they've got the iPod classic in there, the Apple remote, and quite a few...

Day of Defeat now available for the Mac

One more classic Steam title has been added to the Mac lineup -- Day of Defeat is now available on the OS X version of Steam.

Not getting an iPad? Don't forget the 'netbook option'

With all of the netbook hoopla, it's worth remembering that Apple really hasn't filled the need for a full-featured, really small laptop.
