Although most people won't have sat through the Apple presentation this week, there were a number of key announcements for your business. iCloud, for example, is an interesting new concept which will rival cloud synchronisation services such as Dropbox, Wuala and others.
With iCloud officially launching in "the Fall" (September), early adopters can get a small glimpse of some of the features in iTunes 10.3 for Windows and iTunes 10.3 for Mac, released today. This new version enables you to keep your music, apps and downloaded books synchronised between computers, using Apple's iCloud service.
VLC Media Player 1.1.10 is a very popular media player and has been updated for both Windows and Mac computers.
Speccy 1.11 is a simple diagnostic tool that enables you to examine your system and check your installed components, which can be essential if you want to check whether your new PC matches the specifications in the advert.
If you can't remove security software from your PC, or do not trust the Windows Add/Remove Programs feature, then take a look at AppRemover 126.96.36.199 which is designed to root out and completely remove all traces of installed security apps.
Another big release during the last week was LibreOffice 3.4 for Windows and LibreOffice 3.4 for Mac. This powerful free office suite is based on OpenOffice and is gaining popularity across the internet. Suitable for business users wanting to open Microsoft Office documents, the cross-platform office suite will give you a document editor, a spreadsheet and a presentation tool.
