IGG Software has released version 4.2.4 of iBank, its money management software. At a time when many are lamenting the impending loss of Quicken due to the disappearance of Rosetta (see “Rosetta and Lion: Get Over It?,” 23 May 2011), IGG has confirmed that iBank is Lion-ready with this release. With the major iBank 4.0 release and subsequent minor updates, iBank gained the capability to import data directly from Quicken and Microsoft Money, introduced new budgeting and investment tracking tools, and added transaction templates and more reports, in addition to many bug fixes and performance enhancements. ($59.99 new from IGG Software and the Mac App Store, $29.99 upgrade for iBank 3 users, free update for iBank 4 users, 19.2 MB, release notes)
How Loud Are Your Mac's Fans?
When they get hot, Macs turn on various internal fans to keep components cool. The noise can be annoying, but just how loud is it? If you have an iOS device with a built-in microphone, you can download one of many free sound meter apps (search on
decibel in the App Store) and see if you're subjecting your ears to a truly unreasonable noise level.
