    Macworld have a great article on <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/144086/2009/11/tco_iphoneos3.html">understanding your iPhone backup</a>.

    The Apple Blog has a look at <a href="http://theappleblog.com/2009/11/24/a-tale-of-two-hard-drives-apples-secret-weapon/">how much (good) tech support is actually worth</a> - sure, you saved money on that Dell, but is that anything compared to how much money you'll save when your hard drive dies?

    Apple understand that your new i7-iMac (if it arrived undamaged, that is) is a close competitor to the Mac Pro, at least in the preformance stakes. Which is precisely why there's <a href="http://www.hardmac.com/news/2009/11/26/first-test-for-the-forthcoming-intel-6-core-xeon">a new Mac Pro just around the corner</a>.

    Remember how Gameloft said they would cut back their Android developing efforts? Well, it seems there's a difference between cutting back and stopping entirely, as they've just <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/144093/2009/11/gameloft_android.html">announced support for future Android handsets</a>.

    It seems there's a Product(RED) version of everything these days, and iPhone apps are no exception. A Product(RED) version of Shazam is <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/shazam-red/id341382680?mt=8">now available on the App Store</a>.

    <a href="http://www.creativeapplications.net/quarz-composer/glitch-pattern-generator-quarzcomposer/">GlitchGenerator</a> seems like a handy tool to... generate glitches. The glitches it generate actually seem real, but I don't think you'll be fooling any Apple Genius with this one.

    There's an awesome new app, and <a href="http://macdailynews.com/index.php/weblog/comments/23166/">it speaks your language</a>. Or not, depending on which way you look at it.

    What exactly was the thinking behind Apple's purchase of PA Semi? Macworld attempt to take a deeper look into <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/133191/2009/11/pasemi.html">why such an acquisition took place</a>.

    PasteMagazine tell us <a href="http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2009/11/the-20-best-gadgets-of-the-decade-2000-2009.html">the best gadgets of the decade</a>. Yeah, there are a couple of Apple products in there.

    There's more to Expose than meets they eye, so it's definitely good news that there are blogs willing to publish their <a href="http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/become-a-multitasking-master-with-these-6-expose-tips-mac/">Expose tips and tricks</a>.

    Finally, ZAGGskins are basically customisable protective film for your portable gadget. If you're not the designer-y type this might not interest you, but having an iPhone with your own design/logo would be pretty cool - and you'll also get the added bonus of scratch protection! They're also 50% off till November 30, so <a href="http://www.zagg.com/zaggskins/index.php">go get 'em</a>.

    Yosemite - feeling underwhelmed

    I would imagine so. For the very brief time I had Yosemite on my computer, it ran CS5 OK, just needed to install java runtimes.

    I want a standalone calendar app

    How does the calendar know what the event is, if all you do is touch the date? Makes zero sense to me

    iOS 8.1 is released

    Finally bit the bullet and upgraded all my iDevices. All happy. Still remaining suspicious of Yosemite.

    Yosemite - feeling underwhelmed

    Fixed after hard reboot, rMBP would not respond to -Restart/Shut Down.

    Am a little concerned, will monitor to see if it happens

    Yosemite - feeling underwhelmed

    That is strange. My Macbook Pro non-retina seems to be fine in that respect. I wonder if its model specific or the install or something else?

    [BUG] except for F3 and F4, function keys not working on late-2013 rMBP, no problems with late-2009 iMac

    Have also tried when pressing

    SSD for a late 08 Macbook.

    If you don't have 8GB, you don't have anywhere near enough, so definitely get that. Faster RAM will not improve anything and may not work, so get exactly

    I don't get the point of iPads

    I wanted one really badly when they came out; they just seemed to be a brilliant device in the abstract. Managed to wait until iPad 2, which I found
