Since Chris is probably going to be swamped answering requests for Joost invites, I figured that I’d post that Apple released Pro Application Support 4.0 via Software update tonight.
The 7.6MB update is recommended for all users of Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Aperture, Final Cut Express HD,
Soundtrack, Logic Pro and Logic Express.
Aperture freaks rejoice.
So far no major difference here (plus no reboot required). If you have any feedback on the update, drop us a comment.

Folks, a friend saw fit to invite me to Joost and with the new beta in process, users have unlimited invitations.
If any of you want in, contact me via the comments and I’ll see that you’re taken care of.
No repayment is necessary, but if someone out there is in a position to make sure that Paris Hilton is deployed into deep orbit with only 20 minutes of oxygen and a Rubik’s Cube for company, that’s all I ask.
Update: Guys, you probably shouldn’t put your e-mail in the body of the comment. We here at PowerPage aren’t in the spam business and don’t harvest your e-mails, but various spam bots do. Just be careful about it and it should save a few headaches down the road!

On Tuesday, German software maker MapMemo unveiled MapMemo 3, the new version of its map-modification software. Similar to WYSIWYG HTML/image map editors, the program links files to map images. The new new version allows users to print to paper and PDF as well as add map layers on top of each other. A new “Export to text” function allows maps to be created with number-indexed memos as well as an indexed list of details.
For a demo video of how the program works, click here.
MapMemo 3 retails for US$25.00 and users who purchased a version of MapMemo after March 1st can acquire the upgrade version for free. Registered users will receive a complimentary second license that can be personalized to another user – an unlicensed version will allow three MapMemo files to be created or saved before reminding the user to register.
The software is a 3.5 megabyte download and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later to run. The program is coded as a Universal Binary and runs at native speeds on both PowerPC and Intel-based hardware.

Miglia has announced that it has released a software update to its TVMax product, a device which hooks into a Mac and allows video to be imported via coax, S-video and composite inputs. The TVMax itself relies on a USB 2.0 connection to interface with the computer.

Microsoft‘s Windows Vista team has announced that it has published the “final” update for iPod compatibility with the Windows Vista operating system.
According to the Infinite Loop blog on Ars Technica, the update was developed in cooperation with Apple and addresses a concern wherein users have been in danger of corruption on the iPod when using Vista’s “Safely Remove Hardware” feature in the system tray.
The update has been released on a Microsoft support page for the time being and will become available via Windows Update on May 22nd.
Why this is the “final” update, we’re not sure, but they seem detemerined to lick this problem and maybe they finally have.
If you’ve tried the update and had either a positive or negative experience, let us know.
