    iAd from Apple aims to put super-personalised, awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, incredibly-delicious ads right in your pocket. Before I run out of superlatives though, it looks like*that federal antitrust probe also extends it's reach into iAd.

    Hey iPad owners - if you jailbreak your beloved, not-yet-released-to-Australian-customers device, there's a pretty decent chance*you'll be able to use your Magic Mouse with it. The only question is - why the hell would you want to?

    Big news is that*Android handsets are outselling the iPhone in the US. 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...

    You can now run Leopard on your PSP, 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 make the most of it.

    Panic show you an Apple //e and an iPad. Pretty neat, huh?

    iPhone AppStorm give us... kids games! 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*MacBook business card *holder (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 picking up the most-excellent Portal, currently free on both Mac and PC, firing up the Steam for Mac client, joining the MacTalk Steam group, and then finally, giving some of the other games available for Mac a go.

    For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past, what, three months or so, Apple have posted a "What is iPad" ad on their website. It's brilliantly crafted, and like any other Apple ad, shows off the best features of the device.

    As a response to Steve's Thoughts on Flash, Adobe have posted their thoughts on open markets. 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 Apple are improving it 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.*Steve said so.

    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 Adobe you want you to bend over.

    iPad Screen Recorder App

    I don't think there is anything native on the ipad to do so , though you could use Reflector or a similar program to mirror the display to a computer

    Yet another survey...

    I do get your point Benny (Hi BTW) I guess the quality of the response should be proportionate to the quality of the question. How much time would be

    I guess they key here is to differentiate between static IP addresses and manually configured IP addresses.

    But there are times when a static IP is required for a particular application.

    I agree that assigning static IPs is a pain and that is
