    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>.

    Hope he is okay for Christmas. Good on him, very brave.

    Santa should be extra-generous this year. I'll put in a good word for him.

    Yeah, I wasn't able to find any locally when I got mine. It was only available by the elgato website in the UK I think.

    I got one second

    Mac Pro 2008 Random Shut Down During Boot Up.

    The offending files were removed and the machine is no longer sluggish anymore and the machine has stopped with the random boot shutdowns for now.

    Mac Pro 2008 Random Shut Down During Boot Up.

    Yeah, I'd definitely be getting rid of the adware. I'm also not a fan of things like CleanMyMac2, but each to their own. Everything else looks fine
