Safari tabs petition
In brief: The Mac U has released a new video designed to help customers become more familiar with the latest release of iMovie. The video includes approximately 90 minutes of content and covers topics ranging from organization to editing. Mophie has announced that its latest small-form case and external battery combo will be fully compatible with the iPhone 3GS. The case is claimed to be one of the smallest external batteries available, and add an additional 4.5 hours of 3G talk time. Meanwhile, a new petition has been started, in an attempt to see the tabs-on-top feature returned to Safari 4. The feature was introduced in the Safari 4 beta, but ultimately removed.
The Mac U has released a new training course video, which covers topics related to iMovie '09. iMovie '09: Beyond Find Out How includes 90 minutes of material covering how to import videos, organize an event library, edit projects and more. The video is available as a single download for $14. Customers can also choose to sign up for All Access Membership, and receive access to all training courses plus a weekly Mac video tutorial, Mac software demo videos, and a Mac news, reviews and deals section. The Mac U offers three different payment methods: a monthly membership costs $6 per month, while a six-month package is $36, and a one-year membership is $60.
Mophie has announced that its Juice Pack Air will be fully compatible with the iPhone 3GS when it is released next week. The product acts as both a case and external battery for an iPhone, and is said to provide an additional 4.5 hours of 3G talk time, 9 hours of video playback, or 27 hours of audio. A standby mode controls when the battery is active. The device also allows users to simultaneously charge up and sync with iTunes. Electronista recently reviewed the accessory and found that it provided sufficient protection for the phone but that extra battery life fell short.
A new petition has been started in an attempt to get Apple to bring back the tabs-on-top feature from the Safari 4 beta. Most browsers situate tabs under the address bar, and Google Chrome was the first major program to try innovating in this regard. The official version of Safari 4, launched on Monday, scraps a Chrome-like design in favor of one closer to Safari 3. The petition's founders say they do not want the feature enabled by default, but rather as an option.
