Audio Hijack 3.5 for the Mac is out and it adds a feature we lost when Nicecast was discontinued: the ability to livestream over the internet. The version 3.5 update adds a Broadcast block for Shoutcast and Icecast servers, which is just what podcasters need to livestream as they’re recording shows. It also supports multi-broadcasting and adaptive bitrates, plus switching between two inputs. Audio Hijack 3 is priced at US$59 and the update is free for version 3 users. You can get the app at the Rogue Amoeba website.

Fortnite Adds Practice Mode So You Don't Have to Die Right Away

· · Cool Stuff Found

Fortnite is amazingly popular battle royale shooter game, but horribly frustrating for new players because it’s far too easy for new players to die before they really get started. Epic Games fixed that with a new version 4.5 update that adds a multi-player practice mode where you get an hour of play time to learn the ropes. You can build structures, practice with weapons, and more. The update also adds double pistols, a thermal scope assault rifle, stink bombs, and more weapons. Fortnite is a free download on Apple’s App Store.
