We have a veritable cornucopia of Apple-related articles this week, anchored by Matt Neuburg’s exploration into a tricky font cache bug that can cause seemingly random text to be displayed. Doug McLean reports on a serious vulnerability in Adobe’s Flash and looks at Apple’s update to Logic Studio. Glenn Fleishman reviews the new Skype 2.8 for Mac, which includes a limited screen sharing capability and per-minute Wi-Fi access at numerous hotspots. And Jeff Carlson delves into Apple’s record-setting Q3 profits. We’re also pleased to announce a new version of Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of MobileMe.” Notable software releases this week include Final Cut Pro Studio Update, iPhoto2Twitter 1.5, and Sandvox 1.6.3.
