    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/steve-jobs-picture-1.jpg.jpeg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-10363" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/steve-jobs-picture-1.jpg-230x300.jpg" alt="" width="230" height="300" /></a>With many media outlets now releasing digital magazine equivalents on the iPhone and iPad, one example on how NOT to do it is the New Yorker app with the most negative reviews I've ever seen (in the US App Store), it must be a real stinker. But why? <a href="http://52tiger.net/new-yorker-app-store-ratings/" target="_blank">Dave Caolo answers that question over on his blog</a>.

    Engadget have*<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/30/nokia-n8-vs-iphone-4-camera-showdown/" target="_blank">a comparison of the Nokia N8 and the iPhone 4</a> or more specifically, their cameras. It seems as though the Nokia tends to better represent reality, whereas the iPhone 4*oversaturates*images a little.

    Frequent flyers may appreciate the thought that has gone into Flightboard, a new universal app that*<a href="http://appshopper.com/travel/flightboard-live-flight-departure-and-arrival-status" target="_blank">shows you the arrivals and departures for any airport in the world</a>! With a gorgeous interface and iPad and iPhone*compatibility*in the one app, what's not to love?

    Wow, it seems these*<a href="http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/time_warner_ceo_says_no_way_to_itunes_tv_rentals/" target="_blank">media companies are really against 99-cent iTunes rentals</a>, aren't they? It probably doesn't mean much for us Aussies, but I'm sure any media deals now will make a difference to us down the track both in*availability*and pricing.

    Mobile designers and*architects*rejoice! The <a href="http://www.autocadws.com/mobile" target="_blank">AutoCAD mobile application for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad is finally here</a>, and it seems as though it's a very polished app for the functionality it has to offer.

    Living in the future means locking your Mac when a particular Bluetooth device is not present. <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/09/29/lock-your-mac-via-iphone-and-take-an-isight-picture-with-login-attempts" target="_blank">RedHand is a security-conscious app for OSX that does just that</a> and more.

    Living in the future also means not having to change your desktop picture manually. I'm personally a huge fan of EarthDesk, which puts <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/154425/2010/09/earthdesk_gpu.html" target="_blank">a real-time map of the world on your desktop for your viewing enjoyment</a>.

    Last week I told you about the multitude of cloud-sharing apps for the iPhone, and it just so happens that Smoking Apples have <a href="http://smokingapples.com/iphone/droplr-cloud2go/" target="_blank">a head-to-head review of Droplr and Cloud2go</a>.

    Another day, <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/28888/apple-seeds-mac-os-x-10-6-5-build-10h548-to-developers" target="_blank">another Mac OSX 10.6.5 seeded to developers</a>. With no known issues and a newer build number than the recent AirPrint enabled build, the smart money is on a release within the month.

    The morning news wouldn't be complete without a*blatant*tolling against those pesky PC users, so here is <a href="http://www.intelligentelite.com/en/blog/it-is-finally-proven-apple-users-are-more-intelligent-than-pc-users/" target="_blank">conclusive proof that Apple users are more intelligent than their PC counterparts</a>. Have a brilliant day, Mac*aficionados.

    Bought iMac in 2004 with EDU discount and didn't do anything.
    Another in 2009, same thing.

    Really leon? I vaguely recall having to input my student ID last time I bought from the online store which, admittedly, was a long time ago.

    Export them all in original format, then reimport to iphoto and use that instead (assuming you still have it, photos does not get rid of it)

    Nothing. You just buy from edu store online. In 10 years I've never once been asked to prove my academic status.
    It's an honour system as far as
