This week brings an eclectic set of news and reviews, starting off with Microsoft not purchasing Yahoo for $50 billion and running all the way through Joe Kissell’s review of the Nabaztag Internet Rabbit. In the middle Joe also covers the release of the MozyHome online backup service, Jeff Carlson looks at movie purchases on the Apple TV, and Glenn Fleishman examines AT&T’s new iPhone plan for the hearing and speech impaired. Glenn also reflects on the outpouring of support for handcrafted HTML and reports on Microsoft’s ending of support for its PlaysForSure DRM, and Matt Neuburg contributes a glowing review of Vara Software’s new ScreenFlow screencasting software. In the TidBITS Watchlist, we look briefly at updates to TextExpander, DiscLabel, Microsoft Messenger for Mac, Tinderbox, MacPilot, Infovox iVox, Synchronize Pro X, 1Password, the iMac ATI Radeon HD firmware, and Java for Mac OS X.
