9to5Mac has once again scoured the App Store for all the latest app launches, price drops, noteworthy news, and updates, and we have compiled everything in a roundup below. Check it out, but keep coming back as we continually refresh the list throughout the day.

Sneak Peek

1. Unbound for Mac
Unbound for Mac is a “blazing fast, simple to use” viewing experience for Dropbox photos. It works in conjunction with the Leap Motion Controller. Developer Pixite said Leap makes “a lot of sense for viewing your photos on a big screen or a projector,” and it has made Leap work seamlessly with Unbound. Check out a sneak peak of the Mac app in the video above (it is coming soon to the Mac App Store). Pixite also currently offers Unbound for iOS on the App Store.

Dropbox to buy Mailbox and retain 13 employees, will keep service as stand-alone app

screen-shot-2013-01-21-at-4-59-51-pm

Dropbox announced on Friday it is buying Mailbox, the highly anticipated mail client with a lengthy reservation list from Orchestra, and clarified it will keep the service running as a standalone app.

According to The Wall Street Journal, all 13 Mailbox staffers, which includes former Apple employees, will join Dropbox, although the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We felt we could help Mailbox reach a much different audience much faster,” said Dropbox CEO Drew Houston, while explaining how Mailbox’s technology could boost certain Dropbox features.

Dropbox, which has roughly 100 million users and a $4 billion investor-valuation, wants to use Mailbox for email attachments, because the inspiration for the acquisition occurred after the two companies began talking about email attachments in recent months.

Mailbox launched for free in the App Store last month, and it is now delivering 60 million messages a day and has tallied 1.3 million reservations, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Check out 9to5Mac’s Smackdown review for more information on Mailbox.

Apple’s former retail head John Browett says he was rejected for ‘fit rather than competency’ (Video)

value="http://rw13.silverstream.tv/flashpoint_idrop.swf?vidp=115" />value="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" />

John Browett, Apple’s former head of retail who lasted only six months at the company, recently told attendees of the Retail Week Live conference that he learned much from his experience in Cupertino and is now a “kinder person.”

While admitting he as acquired a degree of humility, Browett explained he “just didn’t fit within the way (Apple) ran the business.” Browett also said Apple is a fantastic business with great people, products, and culture, and he loved working there, but he has since become very clear of how he is and what he is like to work with.

“It will make me much better at doing my job in the future,” he added. “It was one of those shocking things where you were rejected from the organization for fit rather than competency.”

Browett departed from Apple in October 2012 amid a major shakeup at the company and now works as the chief executive of Dixons retail chain in the United Kingdom, while CEO Tim Cook assumed his duties and currently oversees Apple’s retail side.

A clip of the conference interview is available above.

Apple’s eBay store offers significantly better deals on Apple.com refurbs (and that’s before tax+payment advantages)

Screen Shot 2013-03-08 at 12.48.48 PM

9to5Mac first broke the news that Apple sold refurbished merchandise through its own eBay store last year, equipped with the same price tags, full warranties, and approved inspections, and now the company has dropped prices on many of those items below what it offers at store.apple.com.

9to5Toys and eventually Dealnews recently noticed a $100 price cut for Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air with 1.8GHz i5 and 128GB of storage (now over). It costs $100 more at store.apple.com for the same refurbished unit.

An even better eBay deal has emerged today: Apple’s 11.6-inch MacBook Air with 1.8GHz, 4GB SDRAM and 256GB SSD is only $949. It’s certified refurbished unite, while the same refurb model goes for $1,059 on Apple.com, and the 256GB MacBook Airs start at $1,299 new. All items come with free standard shipping, and eBay adds sales tax for only a few states at purchase and allows folks to pay with PayPal and BillMeLater.
