- PlayBWF allows users to preview the BWF audio data without the need of any expensive software solution. The OS X application supports mono BWF and stereo BWF-P files. PlayBWF also extracts the meta data of the BWF file header and displays data like starting timecode of the file, scene, take, notes etc. The timecode is calculated based on the user-defined framerate.

Transmit 2.5.1 is a maintenance update to the FTP client for Mac OS X from Panic. The update corrects a few bugs, primarily with SFTP. Fixes include: an SFTP failure when trying to upload files on certain servers ("read error"); a problem where SFTP uploads would be 0 bytes after a large number of files ("remote handle"); the display of remote symbolic links; and a hidden preference to disable Transmit directory caching.

USA Today column praises iPod
A USA Today article says Apple's iPod is still the best digital music player on the market, as it enters its third generation. Compared to the competing Neuros music player, the iPod is more refined, and easier to use. Author Edward C. Baig says comparing the iPod to the Neuros is like comparing a "triple-A prospect next to Texas Rangers' shortstop Alex Rodriguez." Baig says the iPod "outclasses every other portable player [...] in style, speed and simplicity."
