Beat the heat, grab a drink and catch up on this week.

It was a big week here at the Macgasm, where our red pen overlord declared that we were officially out of the rumor game (more on that later.) Apple had a big week too; right at the end of the week there were two big acquisitions announced. The first was for Locationary, a “Wikipedia” for businesses. The second was for the mass transit app, Hotspot. The slow roll out of iWork for iCloud began this week, as Apple sent out invitations for the beta to some iCloud users. In not so exciting news, the Apple Developer Portal had some downtime issues. Though it won’t force the coders to put down their pitchforks and torches, Apple can take comfort in the study that found the Apple TV made up 56% of the streaming device market.
