Now We’ve Got MacBooster 4: New Interface & Added Features

It’s always great to see a new release or upgrade for a Mac software. That means months’ of hard working are paid off to the app developer team behind the product.

Today, I just got to know that IObit released a new version for MacBooster. Now we’ve got MacBooster 4! Actually this happened in September, so this post is a bit late (but better late than never, right :D)

According to this IObit forum posting, that the newer version has a new system status UI, and a few new features like Real-time Protection, Extensions Manager, and Privacy Clean.

Nick Peers from MacWorld also covered the news. This sentence he wrote brings to my attention.

We’re not as convinced by its virus-scanning tools, which seem bolted on somewhat, and the lack of any backup mechanism to protect your system in case something goes wrong

Very interesting point, isn’t it? The security market has always been a topic for debate on the Internet, since the PC age. When it comes to Mac, no surprise it’d incur skepticism.

Also, this MacBooster review seems very thorough and unbiased -does not always say good things about an app, I enjoy reading it. Good job, Chris!

Note: in case you don’t know, for those of you who are already using MacBooster 3, IObit charges $10 upgrade fee to activate MacBooster 4. Do you think it’s reasonable? I’d like to hear from you. In my experience, software upgrade is usually free.

Can’t Imagine Technology Ages SO FAST

As I was browsing Mac news this morning (as usual), I read this MacRumors article:

Apple to Obsolete iPhone 4 and Late 2010 MacBook Air on October 31

Like many others, I was kind of surprised that Apple did so. If you have chance to scroll down in the article to the comments section, you’ll see many readers have similar feeling.

Some even say “and still it’s the best iPhone ever :)”, you know what that means ;D

To me, I just felt a bit sad for 2010 MacBook Air users. Well, maybe it’s the trend, but I don’t know. To me, it seems the value of a Mac (like many other types of consumer electronics) discounts faster than ever before.

Is this the trend? And is the MacBook Air pricing reasonable? I have to wonder…
