Macworld Reviews iMovie 10

Serenity Caldwell reviewed the new iMovie 10 for Macworld: iMovie 10 review: a lot to like, a few quibbles.

Article: How to make DVDs as holiday gifts

Macworld asked me to write an article about making DVDs as holiday gifts, which is interesting in light of the fact that nearly all Macs sold today don’t include an optical drive. Still, a DVD makes a great gift that most people will be able to view (since not everyone has broadband Internet access to ...
