    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/2.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-6576" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/2-300x199.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="199" /></a>This whole Flash debacle has blown up to such large proportions that even <a href="http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash/" target="_blank">Steve Jobs himself is weighing in on the topic</a>, and on the homepage of Apple.com, no less. I'm uncertain what spurred this response from the CEO of Apple, Inc, but I do know this - I like it!

    Joy of Tech have <a href="http://www.geekculture.com/joyoftech/joyarchives/1384.html" target="_blank">a Steve Jobs email generator</a>. It's probably good for a laugh, even if all you're doing is just looking through the different responses to questions - some seriously funny combinations to be had!

    Smoking Apples also have*<a href="http://smokingapples.com/software/reviews/transmit-4-panic-mac/" target="_blank">a review of newly-released FTP client</a> by those awesome guys at Panic, Transmit 4. If you've been using something like Cyberduck for a while now, why not step up?

    No Mac coverage at WWDC? Fear not, MacTalk has you covered: while you can now run Steam (<a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/bv92t/so_i_figured_out_how_to_download_the_steam_mac/" target="_blank">unofficially</a>) on the Mac, the other bit of good news for Mac gamers is that <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/04/28/starcraft-2-beta-for-mac-now-available/" target="_blank">the StarCraft II beta client has arrived</a> - that is, if you've been lucky enough to get an invite.

    These <a href="http://menscrunch.com/decorated-imac-laptop-photos/" target="_blank">decorated Mac laptop</a> photos make my eyes bleed. Most of them do, anyway - why mess with perfection?

    From sunken power buttons, broken silent switches, and more, iLounge tell us all about the iPhone 3G, <a href="http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/backstage/comments/built-to-last-roughly-two-years-or-21-months-with-an-iphone-3g/" target="_blank">the phone built to last 21 months</a>. For the record, my iPhone 3G in almost perfect condition (one drop made from a few scratches on the plastic back), and dont' forget that Wednesday's morning news told you that <a href="http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2010/04/27/old-iphones-die-hard/" target="_blank">30% of all the iPhone 2G models that sold are still in use</a>.

    You might have seen this already, but <a href="http://www.kyleconroy.com/apple-stock.php" target="_blank">what if you had bought $5700 worth of Apple stock</a> instead of that PowerBook G3 back in 1997? That same Apple stock would be worth over $330,000 today, that's what. Sure, you'd be out of a laptop, but the PowerBook G3's weren't all that good anyway...

    That same Video Acceleration Framework that Plex are using to build their new H.264 support? Yeah, looks like <a href="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/04/adobe-will-accelerate-flash-video-using-new-apple-api.ars" target="_blank">Flash are also using it to their advantage as well</a>. Maybe this means Flash will suck less on OSX, but we'll see.

    Smoking Apples have a long-winded commentary on*<a href="http://smokingapples.com/opinion/state-of-the-iphone-os/" target="_blank">the future of the iPhone OS</a> now that OS 4.0 has been announced and previewed. If one thing's for sure, Apple's developer focus is on the iPhone OS, not Mac (at least for the moment, anyway).

    As soon as those crazy people at <a href="http://linuxoniphone.blogspot.com/2010/04/android-repos-are-up.html" target="_blank">Linux On the iPhone</a> port Android to the iPhone 3G and I've already got the next-gen iPhone, I'm putting Android on that sucker - because doing so would make me cooler than any of you with the original iPhone, okay?

    Mail links not working

    Did you ever get a solution to this? I am having the same issue now. I click on a link and Chrome comes to the front to open the link.

    iphone 4s sounds work but phone not ringing for incoming calls/notifications/msg's

    Night mode or do not disturb will stop it from ringing (that little moon icon) so is worth a look. If that's turned on the iPhone still makes sounds

    You don't want to cut and paste - have the two images in the same doc on layers, and put a layer mask on the upper layer and use a soft brush to gently

    No third party available.
    You'll have to stump up for genuine.
    The Dr Bott DVI to ADC used a cube power supply if you can find one of those

    Someone Else's ID on BNIB iPhone 6 Plus

    This has nothing to do with iCloud.

    Either an app, book or song/video on your device was purchased with someone else's Apple ID. It is
