Apple releases iTunes 11 on schedule and making a feature length film with an iPad 2 as your camera and Nisus Writer Pro and Express on sale!

Apple made its self-imposed deadline of November 30th and released the latest version of iTunes, #11, on Thursday the 29th. It continues Apple’s trend of iPadification of its Mac apps. In other words, if you’ve used Music on your iPad; you’ve seen a preview of the new iTunes.

We here at MacValley Labs just installed it last night and haven’t had time to do a full review of it yet. We can tell you that it doesn’t open in List view like the previous versions did.

While on the topic of deadlines, today is the day Apple promised the 21.5” iMac would be available. We have to make a trip to the Apple Store to get something for the forthcoming presentation at the December meeting December 5th, and we’ll try to check out the new iMac.

Now to the topic of deals. Nisus has put Nisus Writer Pro on sale for $59 and Nisus Writer Express on sale for just $25! Excellent value in word processing.

Finally, if you’ve thought about making a feature length film and have an iPad, check out this article at Mac|LIfe about making a film using an iPad 2 as the camera. What?! Check it out, you budding Spielbergs and Scorseces!

And “one more thing”. Atari-yes, they still exist-has put out a version of Pong for the iPad and iPhone. It’s been 40 years and trillions of dollars in quarters since Pong was first released.
