Briefly: Google widgets

In brief: Google updates its Mac widgets, MacNN reviews iRemember 2.2, macProVideo teaches upgrades and color correction, and Custom Solutions slips subliminal messages into Macs. Mac users who regularly rely on Google's Gmail, Blogger or Search History widgets were recently asked to upgrade the software; the company now explains that it was informed of vulnerabilities by Thomas Roessler, of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards group. In particular, the Gmail widget would previously write tags in a subject header without checking, allowing malicious users to execute JavaScript that could assume control of a computer. Newer versions of the Gmail and Blogger widgets can be found here, while the Search History widget is located separately.

iRemember 2.2 reviewed

MacNN has reviewed the latest version of iRemember, a scrapbooking application by Intriguing Development. The software, recently updated for Mac OS X Leopard, attempts to simplify creating scrapbooks in view of alternatives like Photoshop or InDesign. Its interface is said to be too simplistic in some ways, however, and despite the inclusion over 15,000 pieces of stock art, it may still lack material for particular occasions. Read the review for more details.

macProVideo releases upgrade, color tutorials

Video tutorial site macProVideo has published new Switcher's Guides, meant for users upgrading from one software platform to something different or more complex. GarageBand to Logic introduces people to professional audio editing, while iMovie to Final Cut Pro attempts to translate earlier movie editing skills. Both of the Switcher's Guides are free; macProVideo has also, however, introduced the $40 Color 101: Core Color, which covers topics in primary and secondary video color correction such as haze, motion tracking and spot-correcting individual colors.

Subliminal messages slip into Macs

Custom Solutions of Maryland is shipping the first version of Subliminal Message Pro, an unusual program that inserts brief subliminal messages over top of every other application. Users can write messages up to 80 characters in length, and adjust factors such as font size and the duration between flashes. The program costs $10, and is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.2 or higher.
