Editor's desk: Return of the daily app roundups!

On any given day hundreds of new and updated titles hit the iOS and Mac App Store. We all care very deeply about some, and not at all about others. And therein lies the challenge — how best to cover the ones that don't appeal to a large cross-section of our readership, the ones outside the overlap? Well, we think we have an idea. It's an old one, but we're going to do it with a new twist!

8 amazing tributes to 3 years of Mac!

30 years of Mac isn't just a big deal for Apple, it's a big deal for anyone passionate about personal computing, anyone who experienced the punch cards and tape decks, the command lines and mismatched components that came before. And for anyone who, thanks in part to the Mac, never had to experience them. Whether you use a Mac today or not, personal computing as it currently exists right now simply wouldn't be the same without the contributions of the people at Apple and on the Mac team. We've been writing about it all week — everyone has been writing about it — and now it's here. The candles are lit. The song is being sung. The party is about to begin. And what a party it is! Here are 8 amazing tributes to the original all-in one, the 1984 Mac that had us all at "Hello!".

Weekly Photo Contest: Bokeh!

This week's photo contest is bokeh, which is just the common term for shallow depth of field. Everyone's seen it whether they know it or not. Popular examples are blurred lights in the background while the subject is in the foreground. It's typically a desired affect in portrait photography but has its place in other areas as well. Your challenge is to create bokeh in your photography in a tasteful and appropriate manner. And remember, post editing apps are okay as long as they are for iOS.
