Apple is announcing new products this week, but not until Tuesday (be sure to check the TidBITS site for full coverage). In the meantime, we have a feast of Mac news and features, starting with Matt Neuburg’s look at why you may want to spend more time with the new LaunchBar 4.3. Adam finally unloads some old hardware using Freecycle, and Glenn Fleishman was last seen playing Bejeweled on his iPhone, oblivious to all else. We also note Microsoft Office 2008 living up to its name by slipping until January, but at the same time the company released a beta of Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) Client 2.0 and a new beta of its XML converters for Windows Office 2007 files. A heap of software updates also passed our desks this week: Security Update 2007-007, Safari 3.0.3 beta, iPhone 1.0.1, AirPort Extreme Update 2007-004, and iTunes 7.3.2 from Apple; Fusion 1.0 from VMware; The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile 4.0 from Mark/Space; and BBEdit 8.7 from Bare Bones. Lastly, it has finally happened: Fake Steve Jobs has been unmasked.
