Mac users have Printopia to activate AirPrint on their not-officially-supported printers, and now*<a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/38011/activate-airprint-on-windows" target="_blank">Windows users have the aptly-named AirPrint Activator</a>.
"The Glif is a simple iPhone 4 accessory with two primary functions: mounting your iPhone onto a tripod and propping up your iPhone at various angles." The really good news is that <a href="http://studioneat.myshopify.com/products/glif-for-iphone-4" target="_blank">it's available for the public to buy right now</a>, but the bad news is that it won't be shipping for another 2-3 weeks.
It seems as though people are thinking up new and exciting ways to link iPads with desktop machines, and the iPad controller for Pro Tools is no exception. <a href="http://www.protoolerblog.com/2010/11/23/ipad-controller-for-pro-tools/" target="_blank">V-Control allows you to control Pro Tools from the comfort of your multi-touch iPad</a>, but what's really interesting is that the iPad hasn't yet been released in Sweden. *That I did not know.
In one of the better Apple knockoffs, Engadget show us a "MacBook Pro"*<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/27/keepin-it-real-fake-macbook-pro-runs-os-x-dodges-question/" target="_blank">that actually has the gall to run OS X</a>. Remember Psystar?
Corkboard promises to change the way you use copy and paste on your Mac, and like its name suggests, <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/reviews/office-review/corkboard-the-future-of-copy-and-paste-on-your-mac/" target="_blank">acts a bit like a virtual corkboard for all the content</a> you would ever want to copy and paste on your Mac - including photos as well as text!
The author of a piece entitled "<a href="http://blog.echoenduring.com/2010/11/23/learning-about-design-from-angry-birds/" target="_blank">learning about design from Angry Birds</a>" writes "there really should be a category in the App Store called un-productivity", and I'm tempted to agree with him; at least on his point about the un-productivity part, anyway.
The iPhone Blog asks whether you <a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/11/25/buy-apps-wait-sales" target="_blank">buy apps upon release or whether you wait for (the almost inevitable) sale</a>. Whilst I'm a firm believer of the fact that good apps are worth paying for, there's nothing wrong with waiting for wanted apps to go on sale, is there?
An upcoming version of iBooks will feature "Collections", which will essentially be user-created lists of content inside the app itself. Right now there are already two collections - books and PDFs - but that will change.
One of the Engadget editors upgrades his Core i7 27-inch iMac with an SSD and <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/27/the-joy-and-pain-of-upgrading-a-27-inch-imac-with-a-ssd-video/" target="_blank">describes every step of the way in a nice little summary article</a>.
Reeder for iOS is definitely up there in terms of pure quality, and it should come as no surprise that Reeder is coming to the Mac.*<a href="http://techcrunch.com/2010/11/14/reeder-for-mac/" target="_blank">TechCrunch have a preview for you to drool over</a>, and the public beta is still slated for sometime later this month. Cutting it a little fine, don't you think?
