    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>? I'm sorry, come again? How something like that slips through the cracks is completely beyond me...

    <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2010/02/04/amazon-has-acquired-touchco-a-multi-touch-company/">Amazon bought out some multi-touch company</a>, in the hopes that they'll be integrate existing technologies into the next-gen Kindle. 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>. He also thinks that Apple will sell 3 million iPads this year, and that working on iPad-specific apps isn't going to be a huge payoff for developers.

    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.

    Nine out of ten $1000+ (otherwise known as "premium") <a href="http://www.betanews.com/joewilcox/article/Nine-out-of-10-premiumpriced-PCs-sold-at-US-retail-is-a-Mac/1265047893">PCs sold in US retail stores are Macs</a>. There are some people out there who just love their Genius Bars, okay?

    <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.
