We’re taking a hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States next week, so our next email issue of TidBITS will be published on 7 December 2015. In the meantime, could you please fill out our 2015 reader survey so we know what you want from TidBITS? In sad news, music-streaming service Rdio is shutting down, with its remains being purchased by Pandora. Dave Kitabjian joins us to look at the recently discontinued Logitech K760, a solar-powered Mac keyboard that can pair to three different devices. Finally, Josh Centers takes another hard look at the Apple TV, this time evaluating the Siri Remote as a game controller. Notable software releases this week include Transmit 4.4.10, Tweetbot 2.2.2, Fantastical 2.1.3, Microsoft Office 2011 14.5.8, and Lightroom CC 2015.3 and Lightroom 6.3.
