Apple has released AirPort Utility 6.3 for Mac, which adds compatibility for the just-released 802.11ac-enabled AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule models (see “Apple Releases Longer-lasting MacBook Air, Faster AirPort,” 10 June 2013). If you don’t have the new hardware, there’s no reason to get the update. Concurrently, Apple released the AirPort Base Station and Time Capsule Firmware Update 7.7.1, but it is available only for the new 802.11ac base stations, resolving a rare problem that could cause a connected hard drive to become unresponsive. (If you don’t have either of the new base stations, this firmware update won’t appear in AirPort Utility for you.) Finally, version 1.3 of the AirPort Utility for iOS has also been released, but it’s another one to skip unless you have one of the new 802.11ac-enabled base stations. (Free, 21.43 MB)
Remove Excess Audio/Video from a Pear Note
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you used Pear Note to record a class or meeting, then forgot to stop the recording and ended up with an extra few hours that you didn't want, don't worry. You can crop off the extra recording. Just move the playhead to the end of what you want to keep, then select Crop Recording From Here from the Edit menu.
