    TUAW call the iBookstore "one big failure", saying that it pales in comparsion to the gargantuan collection of books on competing devices like the Kindle. The thing is, if the US iBookstore is failing even with their publisher deals, what does that make the AU iBookstore, considering we don't even have publisher deals like those Americans do?

    There's a good answer on a Stack Overflow question about*how much it costs to develop an iPhone app. The comment is authored by Craig Hockenberry, one of the developers of Twitteriffic.

    One of the more well-known names on the App Store was recently bought out for a very princely sum of $403 million, but did the company take a gamble on one of the more successful gaming publishers in the App Store?

    This Android Desktop Notifier is pretty cool — leveraging use of Growl, it shows you alerts on your desktop machine from your Android handset. Now, if only there was a similar thing for iOS...

    You too can invert the colour on your iPhone 4 with a handy Accessibility trick, turning your shiny new toy into the most expensive*psychedelic*trip-out device since 2007.

    Yahoo Messenger version 2.0 brings videos and voice chat, along with the feeling of obscurity. I mean, Yahoo Messenger? Who uses that?

    Think Apple breaking the $300 mark on the stock exchange was just a mere*coincidence? No way; for the first time ever, Apple's PC market share in the US crossed ten percent. It doesn't sound like much, but when you're behind giants like HP and Dell, but ahead of companies like Acer and Toshiba, *you'll take every percentage point you can.

    I know Steve said that Blu Ray was a bag of hurt in terms of licensing issues and so on, but what about future optical media formats? With the release of*TDK's*monstrous*optical disk capable of storing 1TB of data, at what point does Apple stop considering future technology based on politics? Or does it scrap optical media altogether, like it did with the floppy?

    Your required reading for the week is Cult of Mac's interview with John Sculley, former Apple CEO. For those of you that don't know, Sculley was CEO of Apple just after Steve Jobs left, and was the first in a string of CEOs before the Apple*renaissance*in the late 1990's led by Steve Jobs himself. It's a long read, but it's definitely worth it as it provides some amazing insights into what really goes on behind those closed doors.

    Ever since the demise of YouTube Wednesday here on the blogs, I've been pining for a good Apple-related YouTube video every now and again. Today, my dream comes true with this brilliant Steve Jobs presentation parody; the story goes that Hong Kong MTR released a new iOS app, and they hired a local celebrity to do his best Steve Jobs impersonation to launch it. Sadly there's no version that has english subs, but it works pretty well in Cantonese anyway — provided that you, of course, actually understand Cantonese in the first place.

    I do get your point Benny (Hi BTW) I guess the quality of the response should be proportionate to the quality of the question. How much time would be
