In brief: A new e-book has been released, showing iPhone users how to perform various mind tricks. Macworld goers may want to check The Hess Memorial Macworld Events List before heading out; the list includes information about otherwise unannounced gatherings. MacMod, meanwhile, is looking to reposition itself as a network for Mac users looking to socialize and learn from their peers.
Magic tricks on-the-go
Millard Grub has announced Magic iPhone Tricks, a new e-book which shows iPhone owners how to convince others they can read minds. The book features over 90 pages of material, and includes three different mental tricks. The book also includes links to various free or almost-free apps which Mac users may find handy.
Another side of Macworld
The Hess Memorial Macworld Events List is in its 14th year of publication, and is a source for all events and press functions organized during the Macworld conference. The list highlights over 100 events happening around San Francisco, and also includes related Internet occurrences and podcasts.
MacMod takes a new path
MacMod is repositioning itself as a new social networking site, allowing Mac owners to socialize and learn from friends. Interaction will, for the most part, be similar to the way it occurs on other social networks. Unlike most networks however, MacMod will be blending these features with useful Mac-related content including software tools, modification guides, system specs, icons sets, daily news and more.
