Apple updates iTunes and iWork for Lion
It's been a massively busy day at Cupertino where the company unveiled new MacBook Airs and Mac Minis, while finally launching OS X Lion to the public.

Photoshop arrives on the Mac App Store
In a rather surprising turn of events, Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 is now available to download from the Mac App Store. The downloadable version of the app is $20 cheaper than the hard copy at around $80. It's the first Adobe app to hit Apple's Mac download portal and means the disc drive-less MacBook Air owners can now easily snag the software.

Songify app turns you into a pop idol
Are you a terrible shower singer? Well, there's an app for that. The Songify app for iPhone allows you to sing into the handset's microphone and the app will autotune your voice and match it against a song. Apparently it sounds great. So that's how Gaga does it!

Rural areas to get cheaper broadband by year's end
Isn't it sickening for you rural folks that you have to pay regular price for broadband service, when you can't achieve half of the advertised speeds? Well help may be coming following a legal ruling that forces BT to charge rival ISPs less for using its networks in less densely populated areas. Will the ISPs pass on the savings to you?

College kids in Sexting shocker!
Who'd have thunk it huh? University students in the United States are horny old dogs. A study from the University of Rhode Island found that "6 percent of the students had received sexually suggestive images, and 78 percent had received sexually suggestive messages. Two-thirds of the group had sent sexually suggestive messages. While most of the messages (73 percent) were sent to a relationship partner, 10 percent were sent without consent of the person who originally sent the message."
