Weekly Wrap: Macworld's top stories for the week of May 29, 2011

Lex Friedman, | June 5, 2011
Couple Memorial Day with "first day back at work after a three-day weekend," and it's easy to understand how you might have slacked off on your Macworld devotion. Let us help you catch up on what you may have missed.


Say cheese!

For amateur photographers, we ran down the best point-and-shoot cameras with manual settings. We also shared ten cool ideas for Instagram users. And we shared Ben Long’s essay on whether a traveling photographer can survive with only a camera, an iPad, and a Hyperdrive—and no laptop. (Spoiler: Yes, but it would have been easier if Ben had brought along our own Dan Moren.)


The Tip Jar

We shared hints about using Quick Look in your print queue, along with a guide to sharing a hotel Internet connection. And if you have issues printing with Adobe CS5, we can help you with that, too.



We know how you love bundles, so we told you all about MacBundler 6, which contains 11 apps. And we know how you love a good Microsoft smackdown, but Macworld editorial director Jason Snell was actually even-measured in his analysis of Windows 8—and how Microsoft’s inability to be bold will keep it from competing with the iPad. On the plus side: Minesweeper!

We think you shouldn't worry about getting cancer from holding your iPhone. We think Remote Conductor is an excellent way to control your Mac via your iPhone. And we think that we might be overdoing the parallel sentence structure. But we're not sure.

Oh, and someone actually managed to dethrone Angry Birds for ten straight days. And you thought they were angry before.


That’s all, folks

We feel guilty writing these wrap-ups, since we’re just reinforcing that it’s okay to engage in activities besides keeping your eyeballs glued to our Website. And we definitely don’t want to give you that impression. But we’re happy to help you catch up on what you missed, and we’ll be equally happy to do so again next weekend… if the crick don’t rise.
