It's all seriousness on the MacTalk news desk today - on with the news!

    If you've got too many songs and iTunes doesn't quite run as well as it used to, <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/reviews/music-reviews/everplay-your-lightweight-itunes-alternative/">why not give Everplay a go</a>?

    Want to know how a hard drive works and how it doesn't? There's an app - <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2010/02/17/macworld-2010-get-an-education-with-the-drivesavers-hard-drive/">called the Disk-aster simulator </a>- for that.
