We can't be the only ones asking ourselves: is it really November already? We've had a busy year, and as we push toward the end of 2008 and prepare for Macworld Expo in January, we're going to recuperate next week and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

We won't be asleep the entire time, of course - we just can't help ourselves. We'll no doubt continue to post to the TidBITS Web site. Check back at the site or subscribe to the our RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we're writing.
