    Even without Microsoft Office, your Mac already has the ability to convert to .doc from the dreaded .docx format. By using a simple Terminal command, you're simultaneously sticking it to the man and getting a usable Word document!

    Those of us who have ever*experienced*the horrors of public transport would be well aware of the fact that you need to simultaneously listen to your music and be aware of what's going on around you.*Thanks to a little app called Awareness, you life just got a whole lot easier.

    I've never seen the attraction of a physical keyboard for my iPhone —*primarily*because the software keyboard is just that good. Those pining for something a little more tactile, however, can take a look at*an integrated flip-out keyboard case for iPhone 4 over at ThinkGeek.

    Blind World is a shiny new iPhone game for your perusal. The gameplay is alright, but frankly it's a little too crash-happy for my liking. There are also a couple of gamplay mechanics I'm not too happy about, but it's worth checking out regardless — Slide to Play apparently couldn't recommend it, though.

    "Kinetic is a GPS-based tracking and training app for running, cycling, hiking, walking… designed specifically to help you measure, record, store, review and*analyse*your location based data."

    Everyone loves the App Store. Everyone loves infographics. What happens when you put App Store statistics in a pretty graph, add some*over-stylised*text, and call it a day? This particular App Store Metrics infographic, that's what.

    App Store success stories. We've all experienced them, and for such stories like the origins of Angry Birds, such insights are a revelation to how people hit it big on the App Store.

    Mozilla aren't making a phone, but they do have a few ideas on how to make phones better. You can check out their concept, entitled Seabird, over at Mozilla Labs.

    One particular internet colloquialism**is a "troll", one who seeks to incite feelings of anger or in this case, indignation about a particular event. ACcording to Ars, Microsoft are now trolling Facebook in the will-this-never-end PC vs Mac war.
