    Nehalem Mac Pros are all-powerful and all, but how about the fact they take <a href="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/02/nehalem-mac-pros-take-20-performance-hit-when-playing-audio.ars">a 20% performance hit when playing back audio</a>?

Well, that's what I'd expect them to do - here's to being able to rip out the pages of your favourite book, one by one!

    Marco Arment says the internet needs another blog post about the iPad, and so he produces <a href="http://www.marco.org/369636426">another blog post about the iPad</a>.

    Hardmac say that a new Mac Pro (with no less than SIX cores per processor) will be <span style="text-decoration: line-through">released</span> <a href="http://www.hardmac.com/news/2010/02/03/hexacore-xeon-based-mac-pro-soon-part-ii">unleashed on March 16</a>. Mark the day in your calendars, people.

    Looks like all those people that complained about the HUGE bezel on the iPad will get some sort of compromise - <a href="http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2010/02/apples-ipad-may-gain-an-intelligent-bezel-in-the-future.html">Apple filed a patent for a touch-sensitive bezel</a>, which is a complete no-brainer if you think about it.

    <a href="http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/01/gallery-the-best-and-worst-fake-apple-tablets/all/1">Wired give us the best and the worst Apple Tablet mockups</a>. Ah, hindsight - you are a cruel mistress indeed.
