    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/1982a_dwalker_meeting.gi_.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-10189" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/1982a_dwalker_meeting.gi_-300x205.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="205" /></a>So apparently some Ubuntu users weren't happy with the fact that the default wallpaper was made with the Mac version of Adobe Photoshop CS3, so they did what any normal person would do and <a href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-wallpapers/+bug/357218" target="_blank">filed a bug</a>.

    <a href="http://www.macstories.net/iphone/covert-brings-private-browsing-to-safari-cydia/" target="_blank">There's a jailbreak app to do the whole "private browsing" mode</a> on Mobile Safari, but if you take advantage of when Safari saves it's sessions, you can <a href="http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20080913022801470" target="_blank">get an unofficial private browsing mode on the iPhone</a> no jailbreak required!

    Along with that bizzare traffic light arrangement (and horrendous icon, depending on who you ask), iTunes 10 also brought with it*<a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/24861/little-known-itunes-10-benefit" target="_blank">the ability to play back music from any iOS device</a>, even without the "manually manage music" option ticked beforehand. This was possible before iTunes 10, but required the owner of the iPod to be manually managing their music which meant no automatic synching.

    TinkerTool is a great little app for modifying a whole number of preferences that you wouldn't normally be able to modify, and <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/154204/2010/09/tinkertool.html" target="_blank">it's recent update just expands on the things you're able to tinker with</a> under the hood of your new Mac.

    There's nothing like a good set of iPad 2 predictions to start the morning, and iPhone App Storm have you covered. Retina displays get a mention, but they think <a href="http://iphone.appstorm.net/general/app-news/ipad-2-predictions/" target="_blank">it's all about the cameras</a>.

    If you're an avid user of Automator and all of it's actions, but find the interface a little lackluster, or even if you're just looking for an alternative <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/reviews/utilities/cockpit-the-command-center-for-your-mac/" target="_blank">Cockpit for Mac is something that might interest you</a>.

    HyperMac make external batteries for Mac portables and all sorts of iOS devices, but the word on the street is that <a href="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/09/apples-magsafe-lawsuit-tests-limits-of-first-sale-doctrine.ars" target="_blank">they're being sued for patent infringement</a> due to the proprietary MagSafe connectors found on their external battery packs.

    Time Machine has got you covered for automatic backups of your main hard drive, but what about your portable flash drives? <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/how-to/hardware-how-to/automatically-backing-up-flash-drives-with-silverkeeper/" target="_blank">Enter SilverKeeper</a>.

    A month ago makers of Android handsets were talking about putting dual-core processors in their phones. Now they're talking about skipping dual cores and <a href="http://www.androidtapp.com/lets-skip-dual-core-processors-manufacturers-already-talking-quad/" target="_blank">going straight to quad cores instead</a>. In Soviet Russia, battery life eats you!

    There is a strange Japanese game on the App Store that <a href="http://dvice.com/archives/2010/09/ipad-kissing-ga.php" target="_blank">rewards mental concentration with a virtual kiss from a beautiful Japanese girl</a>. I told you it was strange but what's even stranger is how you'll look when you actually play it.
