Weekly Wrap: Haiku edition

Each week in this space, we offer up a roundup of Macworld’s biggest stories from the week gone by. Our friends at Ars Technica do something similar, and their roundup last week was written entirely in limerick form. I take that as a challenge; hence, this week’s Wrap is written in haiku.

As a reminder:

That’s five syllables,
And then seven syllables,
And then five again.

Good advice

Dropbox or Google?
Which cloud storage should you choose?
We crown one winner.

First, have a backup.
Then, regularly check it.
Please, trust us on this.

Mobile Me users:
Rescue your data today—
Time is running out.

Don’t reach for that mouse!
You can control your Mac with
Only your keyboard.

Did you ever want
To see all of an app’s art?
We can show you how.

To deauthorize
An old Mac’s iTunes account,
Just follow these steps.

Mac app reviews

Klammer can open
Outlook data that Mail can’t.
Silly Microsoft.

Streambox is an app
That’s great if you’re willing to
Open Pandora.

Tried Caffeinated?
The trial is Caffeine, free.
Ha ha, I kill me.

Play FLAC, Ogg Vorbis,
And other goofy formats
With the app Enqueue.

Stock Keeper keeps track
Of your digital assets.
We like it a lot.

Battery Status:
Good app, long name. Once again:
Battery Status.

iOS app reviews:

Our review of Chrome:
Google’s browser is good, but
Needs some improvement.

Toca Boca’s apps
Are a must if you have kids.
As is Tylenol.

Apple’s Podcasts app
Is a welcome newcomer,
But underwhelms us.

In other news

An Apple snafu
Caused updated apps to crash,
But all is fine now.

iGoogle’s closing,
And that makes contributor
Joel M. Mathis sad.
[Mr. Mathis claims that his first name has two syllables. We disagree. -Ed.]

Apple’s market share
Just keeps growing and growing ...
Much like its profits.
