We’re getting ready for next week’s Macworld Expo, er… Macworld | iWorld, so if you’re going, be sure to check out the TidBITS Events list for where we’ll be. In other news this week, Adam weighs in on the SOPA/PIPA issue with a perspective that hasn’t seen much play — that of what it’s like to be a small publisher whose work is used without permission. Adam also reviews Third Rail Mobility’s Slim Case System (a battery-powered case for the iPhone 4 and 4S), and Glenn Fleishman proposes some fixes for preventing unexpected sounds from iPhones during performances. Also, our latest ebook is Kirk McElhearn’s “Take Control of iTunes 10: The FAQ, Second Edition!” Notable software releases this week include GraphicConverter X 7.6, BBEdit 10.1.1, and the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Public Beta.
