Our Macworld 2011 recap continues this week with links to all the video recordings of our public presentations at the show, along with a MacVoices podcast where we ponder what Macworld Expo does right, and where it could improve. Glenn Fleishman remains in the pondering department to try to figure out why HP essentially announced that its next smartphone and tablet would be irrelevant by the time they ship. Back in the real world, Michael Cohen reviews the Mobee Magic Charger for Apple’s Magic Mouse, and Jeff Porten discovers that an iOS app turns his iPhone into a poor man’s hearing aid, or a surprisingly effective spy tool. Finally, we’re pleased to announce the second edition of Joe Kissell’s essential ebook (essential for iPad users who want to do real work, anyway!) “Take Control of Working with Your iPad.” Notable software releases this week include Flash Player 10.2, BusyCal 1.5.1, and TweetDeck 0.37.3.
