News: Coda 2 announced, Tim Cook highest paid US CEO, Mission Control mysteries, and more!

22 May 12

It's been a few years since the original release of Coda by Panic, and when it first came out in 2007, it changed how a lot of web developers worked on the web. Panic has just announced Coda 2, the version of Coda they made better at everything so it can make you better at everything. Coda 2 features a newly revamped interface for switching between open documents, a re-imagined sidebar with even more functionality, and the same quality that you've come to expect from Panic. Coda 2 will be available in both the Mac App Store and from the Panic website on May 24th. The Wall Street Journal has revealed their top paid US CEOs in 2011, and Tim Cook is at the top of that list with a take-home salary of US $378 million thanks to quite a few shares he was granted last year. His base salary is US $900,000 with annual incentives to the same amount — seeing him beat out runner-up Larry Ellison of Oracle by a few hundred million is quite interesting.  

Mission Control was a feature introduced with Lion as a way to get a birds-eye view of everything that was going on in any given desktop. It also somewhat replaced Exposé, and Macworld have all the mysteries of Mission Control de-mystified.

MacStories has a review of MoneyWiz for Mac, letting you track your personal finances. It's also available on other platforms, as Graham Spencer points out.
