    Rumour has it that Apple's next iPhone will be 2mm thinner (a 20% improvement over its predecessor) and have a 4-inch screen.

    Archive Utility is a utility that does exactly what its name suggests. It comes on every Mac and helps you out with archive files, and yet there are a few secrets about Archive Utility that you may not have known about, as featured by Macworld.

    JPEGmini puts your iPhoto library on a diet by compressing your JPEG files even more than they already are without any visible quality difference. It's now available from the Mac App Store for $20.99 in our local.

    If there's one thing about computers, it's that you can spend an inordinate amount of time just doing nothing. Time management isn't exactly the easiest thing to master, but there are apps like Time Sink that help out with that by showing you where exactly you spend you time.
