To get you ready for next week's main event, we'll take a look back at the top five "Stevenotes" of the past decade that have changed the tech industry in ways that even Jobs' own Reality Distortion Field could never have predicted.
It's one of New York's great indie Mac retailers, made famous by Sex and the City and made successful by thousands of loyal customers... but, if we're going to be frank about it, it was a little bit cluttered and cramped. That's why the team at Tekserve spent most of the Memorial Day weekend ripping out the furniture and refreshing the store layout from the (newly sanded) floorboards up.
The iPad versions of GarageBand and iMovie have been updated today. GarageBand for iPad has been updated to version 1.0.1 and contains new features and fixes. Both updates are free to existing users and available now on the App Store.
Participants in the Lincoln-sponsored deal have been getting emails with an upsell offer, and it's a doozy: $35 for full digital access (iPhone, web and iPad) through the rest of 2011. That's about 1/8th the cost of a full digital subscription plan. Once signed up, you get the full paper on your iPad (including all your favorite columnists and New York stories) along with the iPhone and web versions. Watch out, though; the price goes back up to $8.75 a week at the end of the year.
Apple announced that its groundbreaking iWork productivity apps, Keynote, Pages and Numbers, are now available for iPhone and iPod touch, as well as iPad. Created for the Mac and then completely redesigned for iOS and Apple’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface, Keynote, Pages and Numbers allow you to create and share stunning presentations, beautifully formatted documents and powerful spreadsheets on the go. iWork apps are available on the App Store for $9.99 each to new users and as a free update for existing iWork for iPad customers.
Alaska Airlines is dumping paper flight manuals for its pilots in favor of electronic documents stored on company-issued iPads.
The Seattle-based carrier will be the first major U.S. airline to make the switch from paper to iPad when all its pilots receive a tablet by mid-June. Alaska is making the switch "as part of an ongoing effort to use technology to enhance flight safety, improve efficiency and protect the environment," according to a statement from the airline.
Apparently the iPad was the first device to impress Alaska higher-ups enough to consider going digital.
An e-book that costs the same as a printed book doesn't feel right. No trees died to make it. No heavy machinery ran to print it. No planes flew to ship it. So why should you have to spend as much as you would for a heavy hardcover book to own it?
Remember the kid who brought the wrath of Steve Jobs upon him last fall when he started selling white iPhone 4 conversion kits directly from the factory in China?
Well, Apple has now filed a copyright-infringement lawsuit against Queens teenager Fei Lam, who reportedly made $130,000 selling the kits through his site whiteiphone4now.com from August to November last year.
Apple, the reigning heavyweight of the music business, may have solved the cloud conundrum. It has reached agreements with three of the four major music labels and is close to reaching terms with the fourth, Universal Music, according to people with knowledge of these deals but who can't speak on the record because the talks are private.
The music industry will be watching to see whether Steve Jobs & Co. have discovered a way to quell the deep anxieties of the music biz while creating a flexible, easy-to-use service that isn't too expensive.
Instead of using the system installer disc that came with your Mac, create a system installer flash drive, like the one that comes with the MacBook Air. It's smaller than an optical disc, more reliable, and runs faster.

Making good on its threats, Lodsys has filed suit today against several third-party iOS developers. According to Florian Mueller, Combay, IconFactory, Illusion Labs, Shovelmate, QuickOffice, Richard Shinerman, and Wulven Game Studios are among the developers targeted in the suit.
Lodsys also appears confident it will win these suits, claiming it will offer developers US$1000 if its claims aren't held up in court.
The update adds the ability to quarantine and eradicate Mac malware if detected. Specifically, the update identifies malware called “MacDefender.” The system will also check daily for updates to a “File Quarantine” malware definition list.
Apple on Tuesday announced that CEO Steve Jobs will be kicking off the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference with a keynote focusing on Lion, iOS 5, and the forthcoming iCloud cloud service.
If you've already paid the US$99 for Apple's MobileMe service, but your account is due for renewal within the next ten days or so, it might be a good idea to hold off on renewing it for now. Apple's rumored to be heavily revamping its MobileMe service this year, and we expect to hear announcements about the service upgrades at WWDC on June 6. Some rumors even suggest that parts of MobileMe may be available at no charge after the update.
As the publishing industry wrapped up four days of digital talk at its annual national convention, Amazon.com's Kindle was seen as the clear, if not dominant, player in the growing e-market; Barnes & Noble's Nook was considered a pleasant surprise and Apple's iPad an underachiever.
With another holiday comes another big EA app sale. Nearly every game in EA's iOS catalog is on sale for just a buck or two, so if you've been waiting to pick up any of EA's games cheaper than usual, head to the App Store and search for the ones you want.
We'll call a few good deals out for you right here: NBA Jam for the iPhone is only US$0.99, as is Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. Over on the iPad, Reckless Racing HD is just a buck, and so are SimCity and Snood. If you want to spend a few dollars, Mr. Moneybags, Dead Space is just $2.99 on the iPhone, and the latest edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour is the same price on the iPad.
If you don't have an endless budget for tech purchases and would rather not just dump the old one in the trash, or are looking to raise some funds, one way to recoup some of what you paid for old tech is through buyback services.

There are some subtle but notable differences between the services.
