AppleInsider say that they're testing <a href="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/11/17/adobe_testing_optimized_version_of_flash_for_apple s_macbook_air.html" target="_blank">an optimised version of Flash for the the MacBook Air</a>, but what Adobe probably don't realise is the Flash is the problem, not the solution.

    I've long since been a believer that the act of repairing permissions is akin to some sort of voodoo magic these days while it rarely does anything useful, the placebo effect it gives is soothing enough for Apple to still include it. Even Apple say that <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/155768/2010/11/unrepairable_permissions.html" target="_blank">repairing permissions usually spits out messages you can ignore</a>.

    What happens if <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/18/steve-wozniak-android-will-be-the-dominant-smartphone-platform/?" target="_blank">Steve Wozniak says that Android will be the dominant smartphone OS</a>? What does it mean?

    For push notifications on the iPhone, it's hard to go past Boxcar. It got a pretty large update recently, <a href="http://appshopper.com/blog/2010/11/17/boxcar-gets-major-update-with-new-services-centralized-inbox-more/" target="_blank">bringing some new services and a cool new centralised inbox for messages</a>.

    See, the thing about iOS is that there are more games on the App Store <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/17/visualized-ios-has-more-games-than-four-generations-of-consoles/" target="_blank">than four generations of consoles combined</a>. While that number seems pretty large, bear in mind that a lot of those games are, to put it bluntly, utter crap.

    With all the creative-type apps available on the App Store these days, it's about time web designers started asking themselves <a href="http://boagworld.com/design/iphone-imagery" target="_blank">if the iPhone is the answer to website imagery</a>. Sure it is take a photo, process it in Instagram or your photo-processing app of choice, then put it on the web. Everyone's a hipster.

    Id Software have released RAGE upon the App Store <a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/11/17/id-softwares-rage-hits-us-app-store/" target="_blank">in the form of an iPhone app called RAGE</a>. It's a shooter game, and it's very good pretty much exactly what you'd expect from those guys who brought us Quake and DOOM.

    "LittleIpsum is a handy app that will automatically generate latin text (the famous lorem ipsum dolar)<a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/18/lorem-ipsum-generator-mac/" target="_blank"> directly from the Mac OS X menubar</a>."

    Facebook Neue is <a href="http://soggysh.it/facebook-neue/" target="_blank">an extension for Chrome or Safari that will make Facebook much nicer to use</a> by removing all the stuff that makes Facebook terrible.

    If your printer isn't officially supported by AirPrint, <a href="http://ecamm.com/mac/printopia/" target="_blank">Printopia for Mac is here to save the day</a>. If your Mac can print to it, your iPhone or iPad can too!

    Hopefully. Seeing as it occurs in nature to a degree, it's not exactly unnatural.

    I didn't know Tim Cook was gay, but I remain unfazed by

    Did you buy it from Apple or a US carrier?

    I also thought that there were still differences between iPhones and that there was only one version

    Family Sharing and iCloud storage/Drive are broken!

    That's pretty much how we have things setup... although we have never turned on family sharing, just shared photo streams by invite (which also includes

    I agree, this would be a much better system. I currently use a hybrid of the old way and the Family Sharing. I have my family members added to Family

    And that would be the same reasoning I have for not using it. If I can't use my existing iTunes credit to pay for family purchases I might as well stick

    I think you need to reset the network settings for the data to work.

    Turning a Mac Mini into a Game Console?

    Let's not forget Apple killed its HTPC software Front Row. Apple clearly doesn't want you to use your Mac Mini this way as a console. They want you
