    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/ballmer-today-2010-10-11-600.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-10540" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/ballmer-today-2010-10-11-600-300x170.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="170" /></a>Okay, I get it. Your PC is far more powerful than your Mac (unless you have a Mac Pro), but you want to take advantage of all that hardware by using one of the best operating systems out there? David Ramsey, former Apple employee, <a href="http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id= 623&amp;Itemid=38" target="_blank">made a Hackintosh an posted his thoughts</a>.

    Nokia and Symbian are two words that have been together for a long time now, and it looks as if <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/154770/2010/10/nokiac7.html" target="_blank">Nokia just shipped it's second-ever Symbian 3 handset</a>. The C7 is the successor to the N8, and pretty soon we'll also have the M8, mate.

    Is the Brasso Gadget Care polish just another bottle of snake-oil from the company who hasn't released a new product in 110 years? <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/08/brasso-gadget-care-polish-review/" target="_blank">Engadget give their gadgets the wipe-down and tell you</a>.

    <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/29967/microsoft-details-wp7-apple-hits-at-an-all-time-high" target="_blank">Apple stock hit an all-time high of $297 yesterday</a>, right about when Windows Phone 7 was introduced to the world... Coincidence? I think not.

    Hot on the heels of geohot's limera1n jailbreak comes <a href="http://chronic-dev.org/blog/2010/10/greenpois0n-initial-release/" target="_blank">greenp0ision from the Chronic Dev Team</a>, which does not use the SHAtter exploit it's Windows only for now, though. Apple will probably patch the current exploit when they release iOS 4.1.1 to fix that pesky alarm clock bug, anyway.

    There's a little folder in your Applications folder contains Utilities. Some view as Pandora's Box; filled with things that will destroy your system if unleashed. That's probably a little too dramatic, though, <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/roundups/utilities-roundups/the-definitive-a-x-guide-to-your-mac-utilities-folder/" target="_blank">as the Utilities folder is actually full of, well, utilities</a>.

    Your required reading for this morning consists of <a href="http://bureau.tsailly.net/2010/10/honey-i-shrunk-the-pixels.html" target="_blank">why pixels aren't as cut out to measure on-screen dimensions as they once were</a>. In a world of ever-increasing pixel densities, do pixels even matter anymore?

    Have you ever wanted to email files into your Dropbox? In Soviet Russia, you can provided you've got <a href="http://www.gethabilis.com/" target="_blank">Habilis</a>, that is. Just kidding about that Soviet Russia thing.

    In something reminiscent of Engadget's CE-Oh no he didn't, Steve Jobs said that Microsoft has no taste. If you haven't watched the associated video I really would, but <a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/what-steve-jobs-meant-by-saying-microsoft-has-no-taste/62114" target="_blank">here's the skinny on why Steve Jobs thinks Microsoft have no taste</a>.

    Another day, another iOS 4.2 beta. Along with iTunes 10.1 beta 2, it's <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2010/10/12/apple-seeds-ios-4-2-beta-3-to-developers/" target="_blank">available in an iPhone developer centre near you</a>!

    <em>Oh no! The image is the wrong picture of Steve! Wait, is that... Steve Ballmer? Oh! Spotted announcing something to do with Windows Phone 7, the CEO Microsoft sadly didn't shout obscenities about developers, nor prance around on stage like a big sweaty monkey. A shame, really. Enjoy the break from Mr Jobs, as we'll be back to normal programming (and in the land of Jobs) tomorrow.</em>
