Congratulations are in order for Australian developer Peter N. Lewis (not the Peter Lewis who writes for the New York Times). At Macworld Expo in San Francisco this year, MacUser Magazine awarded him the Derek Van Alstyne Rising Star Award. This comes on the heels of his Cool Tools award from Apple for Internet tool development earlier this year, and it's great to see a shareware developer receiving the recognition he deserves. [ACE]
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
