    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>.
