    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>.

    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.

    Everything TAM...

    Boxed ones seem to come up a fair amount on eBay - this one is over priced like most of them. I couldn't keep it boxed like that - too good to use!

    HTPC - Mac Mini G4 vs 1,1 Core2Duo ?

    Target the sale of that final revision 1.5Ghz Mac Mini to Amiga enthusiasts on eBay to run MorphOS - you'll get at least $100 for it. Then buy a Core2Duo

    Geocaching - You learn something new everday

    I used to enjoy geocaching, and even set up a cache myself which was quite popular in Melbourne due to it being in a great location. It's kind of like

    Mmm... Tough decision...

    If I can score the 1.83 Core2Duo for under $100, it'll doubtless at least be an improvement on my current model,
