Happy Monday!

Wow, what a tech week we just had! Apple announced all kinds of crazy things at its keynote last Monday, iOS and Mac developers were treated to several days at the Worldwide Developers Conference, and the annual E3 video game expo previewed the future of interactive entertainment. Sure, that show focused mainly on console games, but there were some awesome iOS and Mac titles there, too—here's the proof.

Of course, the week wasn't all cool stuff and high-fives. The US government's controversial PRISM program has been all over the news, and everyone is wondering what kinds of customer information the top tech companies might have shared with Uncle Sam. To read about Apple's role in this continuing story, head on over to And while you're at the site, you can also read our review of the great new sim 7 Grand Steps, learn how to temporarily disable an alias in our ongoing Terminal 101 series, and more.

Have a great week!

Over the last two weeks, the U.S. government's PRISM program has garnered a lot of media attention, as well as denials from tech companies as to their involvement — including Apple. When the media first approached Apple on June 6 about any potential involvement, Cupertino was quick to deny any direct access to its servers, which requires a court order before the company will release any such data. Apple is now making it clear exactly how many such requests it's received, and how it's handled them.
We've covered using aliases in the command line in the past. In a nutshell, it's the Terminal equivalent of creating an alias directory, except with a command. You can easily replace built-in commands, like "ls," with the alias "ls -l" to list additional information when performing the "ls" command. With aliases that replace a built-in command, there's an easy way to ensure you're running the un-aliased version of the command. This week's Terminal 101 will show you how.

Mousechief's 7 Grand Steps is an intricate mix of strategy board game and family management simulation — with the look of an antique coin-op fortune-telling machine — that tasks players with guiding a family, generation by generation, through 5,000 years of human history. That family will contain farmers, doctors, empresses, and priests, all of whom fall in love, have children, make friends, and fight with their siblings. And all of them will die — by starvation, war, or pestilence.
