Weekly Wrap: Macworld's top stories for the week of May 22, 2011

Lex Friedman, | May 28, 2011
Sometimes, it's hard to keep up with all the great content Macworld publishes. So in case you missed a story or three, here's a roundup of some of our best stories from the past week.

We also shared hints on opening multiple copies of a PDF in Preview, transferring iPhoto photos between networked Macs, and skinning Twitterrific, which is less painful than it sounds—particularly for Twitterrific. And we shared advice on creating an OS X flash drive installer, and yes, this refers to the kind of flash Mac users should embrace (not the crashtastic memory hog).


Reviews and previews

As ever, we offered a slew of reviews. MetalStorm offers great multiplayer—complete with in-game trash-talking; Notificant reminds you about your tasks and [NOTE TO SELF: Finish Notificant’s description later]; Fantastical lives up to its name, and ScreenFloat floats our boat. Risk, unfortunately, was a bit of a disappointment.

On the hardware side, we really liked the Future Sonics Atrio m5 Professional Earphones, although their name is certainly an earful. We also covered a new digital camera that will only set you back $45,000—”And to think,” some Windows fan somewhere must have chortled, “it’s not even made by Apple!” Chris Breen couldn't deny that the Peel Universal Remote has (forgive me) appeal. We also wrote up iPad accessories just for your lap, which we managed to do with a straight face.


We're done here

With that, you should be mostly caught up on Macworld’s coverage from the week gone by. Tune in again next weekend to read about all the stuff you’ll miss between now and then.
