Apple just doesn’t stop. Hot on the heels of last week’s iLife and iWork updates, the company released General Support Update 2009-001. The company has also launched SecurityCare, a new service-based program that guarantees subscribers a worry-free computing experience. Plus, speculation abounds about a possible meeting between Steve Jobs and ex-Microsoft executive Charles Simonyi. In the iPhone world, it appears that Apple has started purging poorly performing apps from the App Store, though we’re sure that the new Invisibility, which alerts you to the presence of unwanted people, will make the cut. In other news, Glenn Fleishman reports on the end of 802.11b, Adam looks at the announcement of a “green” printer from Epson and finds some potential privacy concerns within iPhoto ’09, and Jeff Carlson reports on the separate ventures of the now-estranged SmileOnMyMac founders. We also note the release of OmniWeb 5.9.2.
