    I know the trend these days is to simplify things down to their bare essentials, but underneath all those pretty icons lies a... <a href="http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2010/09/apple-is-working-on-multi-core-processor-snoop-filtering-for-macs.html" target="_blank">multi-core processor snoop filter</a>? Yeah, whatever that is.

    OpenFeint could be thought of as the pre-Game Center Game Center for games, but the thing about OpenFeint is that it now also supports*<a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/openfeint-brings-cross-platform-multiplayer-between-ios-and-android/59378" target="_blank">cross-platform multiplayer between iOS and Android</a>.

    The iOS 4.2 beta launched yesterday, and for those who haven't had the chance to play, <a href="http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/articles/comments/new-in-ios-4.2-the-full-breakdown-with-screenshots/" target="_blank">iLounge have the best overview I've seen</a> of all the new and updated features.

    Smoking Apples, however, have <a href="http://smokingapples.com/opinion/ipad-ios-42/" target="_blank">the in-depth breakdown of iOS 4.2 beta for the iPad</a> things you might have missed, if you will, and The iPhone Blog show us <a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/09/16/ios-42-features-find-text-safari-web-page/" target="_blank">finding text in Mobile Safari</a> in the latest beta, too!

    Trimming an MP3 on your Mac? Sure, you could do it with GarageBand, but <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/09/16/trim-mp3-on-your-mac/" target="_blank">OSX Daily show us how to do it with QuickTime instead</a>.

    Blaze is an iOS puzzle game with a bit of a twist. I know I might say that a bit, but in Blaze you literally have to <a href="http://www.slidetoplay.com/story/blaze-fire-puzzle-review" target="_blank">twist the item you're setting alight until all the candles are lit</a>.

    Apple has posted some <a href="http://www.apple.com/ipad/business/profiles/" target="_blank">iPad in Business profiles to it's website</a>, driving home the point that the iPad can also be used as a brilliant productivity tool instead of just for Angry Birds.

    <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/carol-bartz-apple-iads" target="_blank">Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz says that iAds will fall apart</a> because Steve Jobs is too much of a control freak.
