Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.


As the snow falls gently outside my window (and it's about time!), I'd like to welcome you once again to our annual holiday gift issue. We've all been working extra hard to massage this special issue into shape, but the true thanks should go to everyone who contributed gift suggestions. We could never have come up with such a wide variety of excellent ideas on our own, and a few of these ideas have already crept onto our own lists.

From all of us at TidBITS - me, Tonya, Jeff, Glenn, Matt, Joe, and Mark - may all your holiday wishes come true!
