    You may have heard of a little game called Threes! - it's a charming iOS game only recently released - and is also slightly addictive. Basically, you are presented with a 4x4 grid that is populated with 'tiles' that increase in multiples of 3's (hence the name) as you swipe pairs together. The tiles are either blue '1's', or red '2's' - which must be joined to make a white '3'. From here, the tiles will continue to commingle with a 'twin' and produce even more white tiles - which also increase in multiples (e.g. '3' and

    Is that a X-Wing or just my old Xtand for the iPhone 3G

    Around four months ago, I faced a dilemma. Only a week away from commencing my studies, my already problematic MacBook Air decided that it was game over. Attempt to imagine this scenario for a moment. You have a limited budget, limited time and now, limited patience because your electronic companion has decided that now is an excellent time to leave. Iíd have been livid if I wasnít already preoccupied with freaking out.

    Fortunately, I had another computer in storage. An old MacBook Pro. It was covered in dust and its battery didnít hold a charge. Not to mention itís one of those models notorious for developing graphics processor issues. It was in desperate need of attention if it were to survive the amount of use it was about to endure.





    When it comes to keeping an older computer alive, I have some experience. For several years I worked at an Apple Authorised Service Provider, maintaining machines as old as the PowerBook G4 that were still being used as recently as last year. Some of these machines were my own.

    What I would like to share here are some of the tips and tricks I know and learned in the process of keeping these machines ticking away. From simply ...

    The Genius Bar with my name in lights at number 2 by Shaun Garrity

    Welcome to the casual Friday edition of the Mactalk daily news.

    Last week ended with the story breaking that Apple was close to buying Beats Electronics. Despite all that has been written this week, as yet there is no deal done.

    In fact the team at re/code tell us that it likely wonít be closed until next week.

    Given the re/code team have in the past, particularly as the All Things D team at the WSJ, seemed to have ...

    Good morning Mactalkers and welcome to the Thursday morning news.

    Some interesting items to look at this morning.

    The Glass Stairs (by Me)

    Happy hump day Mactalkers.

    Lotís of rumours to report, still no deal on the Beats Acquisition but that doesnít seem to be stopping people writing about it!

    As I settle into the new seat, feel free to message me about what you might like to see in the daily news.

    At the moment I am steering clear of the purported mock up of the iPhones 6 but hey you might think that is exactly what we need to be bringing you here. Also not boring you with all the Beats writing until there is something more concrete.

    Anyway on with the news and oh thankfully there will be no budget updates.

    Is NFC finally coming to the iPhone ...
