TidBITS#1200/18-Nov-2013

Apple has released iOS 7.0.4 and iOS 6.1.5 to fix issues with FaceTime calls, but note that the iOS 6.1.5 update is only for the fourth-generation iPod touch. The tiny Doxie Flip flatbed scanner has hit the market, but what could you possibly use it for? To Michael Cohen’s surprise, quite a bit, actually. If you haven’t started working with Finder tags in OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Josh Centers offers a detailed guide on how to create, apply, and manage them. TidBITS members take note — we’ve just published Chapter 4 of “Take Control of Apple TV,” which describes all of the Apple TV’s built-in content options. Josh wraps up the issue with the latest installment of FunBITS, in which he looks at Bitstrips. What the heck are Bitstrips, how do you create them, and how do you get them off your Facebook news feed? Notable software releases this week include Mellel 3.2.7 and Keyboard Maestro 6.3.
