News: Developer News Window, replacing MobileMe, liquid contact indicators, and more!
The Mac App Store is great in many ways, but because of the ways Apple sits in-between developers and end users, it often means that users are left in the dark when it comes to updates to the apps they use. Sure, in most cases you can email the developer, or follow them on Twitter, but how many users do that? Rogue Amoeba's solution to this communication issue is simple: using an in-app Developer News Window, they can push messages to users of their apps at any time. MobileMe is gone and iWork is next, but Macworld has a few tips on migrating away from MobileMe, even if you're already very happy with iCloud thus far. But what about the services that aren't in iCloud, like iDisk sync, keychain syncing, iWeb hosting, and MobileMe Galleries? Those features can be found using third parties, as Macworld explains.
The new MacBook Pro with Retina display has ten liquid contact indicators, the most in any Apple machine, ever. There are four located undeneath the back cover, and another six that are located undeath cables or other componenets.
