    Crazy Apple Rumors don't post often, but they do post brilliantly. This time they're back <a href="http://www.crazyapplerumors.com/?p=1260" target="_blank">poking fun at Macworld's Macworld Insider program</a>... with their announcement of the Macworld Insider Insider program.

    ifoAppleStore.com have all the glorious specs on the River Park Square Apple Store. More*specifically, they've got the exact details of <a href="http://www.ifoapplestore.com/db/2010/09/09/back-lit-apple-logo-detailed-in-drawings/" target="_blank">the backlit Apple logo that will hang above it's doors</a>, serving as a beacon of hope to those lead into temptation by Steve Ballmer himself.

    ZumoCast is one of those apps that*<a href="http://www.zumocast.com/" target="_blank">allows your iOS device to access any media</a> (not just movies and TV shows) on your computer. It's now out of closed beta, but how does it compare to existing apps like AirVideo?

    If you didn't hear Apple launched yet another social network yesterday under the banner of Game Center. There's <a href="http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/09/09/the-ultimate-list-of-ios-game-center-compatible-games-continually-updating/" target="_blank">a constantly-updated list of Game Center compatible games</a> over at RazorianFly for you to check out, but the award for <a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/09/08/first-online-multiplayer-game-center-updates-%E2%80%93-3-titles-from-pangea-software/" target="_blank">first multiplayer Game Center games</a> goes to Pangea Software, makers of App Store classic Enigmo.

    As far as free FTP clients go, CyberDuck is pretty hard to beat. <a href="http://www.readwriteweb.com/cloud/2010/09/latest-cyberduck-version-provi.php" target="_blank">The latest version brings the goods though</a>, with improved support for cloud services like Amazon S3 and Google Storage.

    The official Twitter app for iPhone <a href="http://mashable.com/2010/09/03/twitter-mobile-push-notifications/" target="_blank">may soon be getting native push notifications</a>, say Mashable.

    Charles Miller is someone who hacks Macs. There's no other way to put it, really he discovers exploits within the OS and then... exploits... them, earning him some serious cash in the process. <a href="http://www.macdirectory.com/component/option,com_exclusive_news/task,viewDetail/news_id,2839/" target="_blank">MacDirectory interviewed him</a>.

    Today's ponderance: <a href="http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/09/06/would-you-pre-order-an-app-from-the-itunes-app-store/" target="_blank">would you pre-order an app from the iTunes Store</a>? People do it all the time for albums in the iTunes Store, and pre-ordering anything is seen as commonplace so why not apps?

    iTunes 10 dropped the ability to create a ringtone from tracks purchased from the iTunes Store, <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/09/04/make-free-iphone-ringtones-in-itunes-10/" target="_blank">but with this little workaround</a> there's nothing preventing you from rolling your own.

    I'm also unimpressed. I don't know if I'm just getting old and reluctant to change but I don't much that's useful and I'm getting the impression that
