Before I run out of superlatives though, it looks like*<a href="http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2010/05/04/federal-antitrust-probe-of-apple-extended-to-include-iad/" target="_blank">that federal antitrust probe also extends it's reach</a> into iAd.

    Hey iPad owners - if you jailbreak your beloved, not-yet-released-to-Australian-customers device, there's a pretty decent chance*<a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/05/09/jailbroken-ipad-apple-magic-mouse-support/" target="_blank">you'll be able to use your Magic Mouse with it</a>. The only question is - why the hell would you want to?

    Big news is that*<a href="http://www.osnews.com/story/23272/Android_Outsells_iPhone_in_the_US" target="_blank">Android handsets are outselling the iPhone in the US</a>. You'll note that the article mentions Android handsets in the plural, while iPhone is mentioned as a singularity - and when you consider the sheer number of Android handsets now available (eight or nine mainstream ones) compared with the number of iPhone handsets available (two), it's hardly surprising, no? Not to mention the variances of carriers, and so on...

    <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/05/02/run-mac-os-x-leopard-on-a-sony-psp/" target="_blank">You can now run Leopard on your PSP</a>, if you so desire - while the proof-of-concept is good, the actual implementation is*hindered*somewhat by the PSP's immensely*minuscule*screen.

    If you've got a NAS device sitting around at home, then luckily for you, Gizmodo tell you *how to use it. *Actually, they tell you how to <a href="http://gizmodo.com/5528815/how-to-get-the-most-out-of-your-nas" target="_blank">make the most of it</a>.

    <a href="http://www.panic.com/blog/2010/05/an-apple-e-an-ipad-and-jed/" target="_blank">Panic show you an Apple //e and an iPad</a>. Pretty neat, huh?

    iPhone AppStorm give us... <a href="http://iphone.appstorm.net/roundups/games/iphone-game-friday-kids-games/" target="_blank">kids games</a>! They're not*necessarily*games for kids, though - featuring cartoon-style graphics and simple, yet engaging gameplay, they'll probably suit your grandma, as well!

    This*<a href="http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/macbook-pocket-mirror-business-card-holder-04-05-2010/" target="_blank">MacBook business card *holder</a> (or is that a business card holder shaped like a MacBook?) is one of the coolest things I've seen since that Leopard running on a PSP thing a few posts up.

    By now you've probably given Steam for Mac a thorough run-through. If you haven't, I'd highly recommend <a href="http://store.steampowered.com/freeportal/" target="_blank">picking up the most-excellent Portal</a>, currently free on both Mac and PC, firing up <a href="http://cdn.store.steampowered.com/public/client/installer/steam.dmg" target="_blank">the Steam for Mac client</a>, joining the <a href="http://steamcommunity.com/groups/mactalk" target="_blank">MacTalk Steam group</a>, and then finally, giving <a href="http://store.steampowered.com/browse/mac" target="_blank">some of the other games available for Mac</a> a go.

    For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past, what, three months or so, <a href="http://www.apple.com/ipad/gallery/#ad" target="_blank">Apple have posted a "What is iPad" ad on their website</a>. It's brilliantly crafted, and like any other Apple ad, shows off the best features of the device.

    As a response to Steve's <a href="http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash/" target="_blank">Thoughts on Flash</a>, Adobe have posted <a href="http://www.adobe.com/choice/openmarkets.html" target="_blank">their thoughts on open markets</a>. Soon, the whole world will be putting in their thoughts on "how your mum looked last night", "why all the good girls don't seem to exist - oh wait, there're in the kitchen", and "why this news piece is so full of*satirical*humour it's almost not funny anymore".

    There's something happening with MobileMe Mail - it's not free (yet!), but <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2010/05/13/apple-introduces-beta-of-next-mobileme-mail/" target="_blank">Apple are improving it</a> with rules, archiving, improved*performance, and more! Sign up for the beta today by logging into to the MobileMe web interface.

    Soon, you'll be able to print from your iPad.*<a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2010/05/10/steve-jobs-says-printing-will-come-for-ipad/" target="_blank">Steve said so</a>.

    Oh, and if you thought Apple's so-called "Australian-tax", or "Apple-tax" was harsh, you ain't seen nothing yet. Pass the lube, because <a href="http://www.hardmac.com/news/2010/04/12/the-strange-price-policy-of-adobe-regarding-creative-suite-5" target="_blank">Adobe you want you to bend over</a>.

    Very good. What camera did you shoot these with? Look to be noise free.

    Is there any other way to post an image other than using Imgur?

    The 'Delete' box that appears is simply a single, heavy, black line around

    Thanks, Alec. Just took one but can't see how to post it. There used to be a space below the message to 'browse' and post but can't see it.
