This week’s digital lifestyle news was dominated by the Macworld Conference and Expo in San Francisco. Apple CEO Steve Jobs delivered his traditional keynote, announcing a flurry of new products and updates: Macbook Air, iTunes movie rentals, iPhone/iPod Touch software, and Apple TV “take 2”.

In our follow-up coverage we asked how movie rentals on iTunes fare?; called for the AppleTV to be opened up to third-party developers; and looked in more detail at the iPhone/iPod Touch updates and how they point to the future.

Our feature of the week was a guest post by Aseem Kishore, titled ‘Ten mobile apps and services you should definitely check out‘. Aseem wrote: “…most cell phone companies are not necessarily giving you the best software and services for your phone. If you’re looking for some cool mobile phone apps or mobile services that are free and really useful, here are ten worth checking out.”

That’s a wrap for the week. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
