    <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?

    I hate itunes 12

    the sidebar is a great example and tbh my biggest bug bear. As iTunes in many ways is a library of stuff, have a finder like sidebar is very handy. As

    I actually really quite like it. There are a few things that bug me, and one of them is that you can't bring back the sidebar like you could on iTunes

    This would have to be the most unintuitive, steaming pile of excrement to ever come out of Cupertino, and I used Mac OS 8.

    It is like they
