• Apple vs. Woolworths in the Battle of the Fruit Shaped Logo

    woolies



    Yep, you read that right - Apple, the fruit company we all love, are taking Australian Woolworths, the company that sells actual fruit, to court, because their new styled W that looks like an apple, looks too much like Apple's apple and the fact that Woolworths slaps their logo on anything, could one day lead to a Woolworths branded computer. The Age has the full report.

    Apparently, less than 5% of these actual claims make it to court, so it could just be a nothing situation, but it's interesting none the less, as it involves a relatively large Australian company. (cheers to Donnie Darko on the forums for the heads up on this story)

    Tab browser switching in Safari on iPad (iOS 8).. Does it?

    Just saying that a lot of people have put a massive amount of effort into trying to revive the place - reduced site activity is coming when people stop

    I'm going to be cancelling my account with Mactalk. It used to be a vibrant forum with loads of helpful advice. Either way I found out eventually after

    Aussie App store Price increases

    Nope, still plenty at $1.29. Probably the developer of that app deciding to jack up the price a little themselves.

    Has anyone else noticed that US $0.99 games are now $1.99 in the Aussie app store not $1.29 anymore ? Example launch centre pro on special for US $0.99

    If you got a few Mac's in your house (assuming you do), look into a EyeTV Netstream.
