It’s the Great Holiday TidBITS Gift Guide, Charlie Brown! We’re doing something a little different this year, with some well-considered suggestions from TidBITS staffers along the theme of “bits-not-atoms.” We also have a review of a pair of unusual iPhone and iPad cases from ZeroChroma, along with a review of the Navigon MobileNavigator iPhone app. And then there’s a DealBITS drawing for cf/x alpha, an interesting image processing application. Notable software releases this week include FlickrExport 4 for iPhoto and Aperture, RapidWeaver 5.0.1, Swift Publisher 2.3.3, VMware Fusion 3.1.2, Cyberduck 3.8, EyeTV 3.5, and Google Earth 6.
