    Hey guys!

    My name is Michael Essany and I am fortunate to have been brought on board this week as a new writer here at ModMyi.com.

    Although I'm sure we'll have plenty of interaction and conversation in the days and weeks ahead, I just wanted to introduce myself and acknowledge how thrilled I am to join this growing community.

    I've been a professional writer and ...

    Remember back in '07 when you picked up CS3 for $1700? Well you might want to think twice about a $30 upgrade to Snow Leopard, the latest version of OS X, available this Friday. Adobe has stated when it comes to CS3 and Snow Leopard - you may "experience a variety of installation, stability, and reliability issues for which there is no resolution."


    CS4 is of course guaranteed ...

    Twitter user pedro10 has received his pre-order copy of Snow Leopard already (a few days short of Friday's launch date), and confirms it contains build 10A432 - which was previously rumored to be the Gold Master.

    Curiously, all the photos he posted, along with the Twitter status detailing this info, are all deleted now. The long arm of Apple? Or did pedro just get tired of ...

    French iPhone developers PresseLite have managed to sneak in the first augmented reality app named Metro Paris Subway into the Apple App Store. If you've been out of "the loop" lately augmented reality is the next big thing where computer generated objects are blended into real-world images in real time. In this particular case the Metro Paris Subway app blends in info about things around the subway when ...

    It appears the Snow Leopard due this Friday could come complete with a Virus/Malware scanner built in. There are zero details about how this works but The Mac Security Blog reports that the screen shot above is Snow Leopard detecting the RSPlug Trojan horse downloaded via Safari. Maybe this is Apple's response to the trojan that was packaged with some iWork '09 downloads back in January.

    Just released, the brilliant BookArc turns your Macbook or Macbook Pro (all models from the Macbook Air to the 17" Macbook Pro) into a swift looking desktop -- well, it stands it up in a neat artsy fashion on your desk at least.

    Priced at $49 this accessory is a very simple idea which surprisingly no one has managed to think of before. All it does is provides a nice resting place for your ...

    No, it isn't an app dedicated to rebellious gymnasts or role playing. Stick It (app store link on sale for $0.99) is simply a nifty way to write sticky notes on your iPhone brought to us by our friends at Tap Factory Apps. Apple had a great idea with their Notes app, and since the original iPhone my life has become free from little scraps of paper floating every which way and consistently getting lost. The problem: Notes is dull and boring.

    Stick It is a more interesting way to do the same ...

    Noticed this DIY iPhone dock while trolling around on Flickr earlier; it's a bit old, but i couldn't pass this one up.

    Apple included an iPhone dock with the first release of the iPhone but has since removed the dock as a prepackaged accessory. The dock, a little bit of plastic with some little connection bits costs a ridiculous $49 via the Apple Store. That price was just ...

    The International Trade Commission is investigating Apple for a possible flash memory patent violation after BTG International, the patent holder, filed a claim.

    Specifically the patents "relate to methods and apparatuses for programming and reading Flash memory cells that store more than a single bit of information per cell;” which Apple has implemented in ALL of its current iPods ...

    The beloved polycarbonate Macbook is in line for a refresh of design to make it slimmer and lighter along with an update to the internals as well reports AppleInsider. This comes shortly after the addition of the 13" Aluminum unibody Macbook Pro released in June.

    Since the release of the 13" Macbook Pro the entry level 13" Plastic Macbook has looked oddly out of place next to sexy aluminum siblings ...

    Steve Jobs has been focusing nearly all his energy on bringing the Apple tablet to market since his return to Apple after a liver transplant reports the Wall Street Journal.

    Anonymous sources claim that Jobs has killed off the tablet twice in recent years due to poor battery life and lack of internal memory capacity. Apparently the tablet has advanced past these issues and Jobs is pushing it forward to ...

    I'm surprised it took this long for someone to release something like this, actually. Movement is a much-needed app from Jeff Stieler which reads your SpringBoard icon placement from your [jailbroken] iPhone or iPod Touch, and allows you to manipulate it and write back a new arrangement.

    The app requires your device to be plugged in, and requires OS X 10.5 or higher ...
