No April Fools issue this year, sorry! But we do share some of our favorite April Fools jokes, products, and services in case you were offline on Sunday. On the serious side, Adam explains how you can get up to 3 GB more storage space on Dropbox by beta testing the new Camera Upload feature, Jeff Carlson discusses how to use the PhotoSync app to transfer images back and forth between Macs and iOS devices, and Glenn Fleishman explains just why Apple’s strategy of making incremental changes to its products is confounding the rest of the technology industry. We’re also pleased to announce our latest ebook by Joe Kissell, “Take Control of CrashPlan Backups,” and, if you’re near New York City on 18 April 2012, invite you to come hear Adam and other industry figures talk about the Apple media world at MacTech Boot Camp New York. Notable software releases this week include Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.3, iPhoto ’11 9.2.3, Logic Pro 9.1.7 and Logic Express 9.1.7, iTunes 10.6.1, Airfoil 4.7, and Safari 5.1.5.
