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

    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.
