    <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.

    Need to rant - possible HDD issues

    Agreed. Its bad for the environment to be dumping computers every three or so years. IMHO an average consumer should get 6 years out of a Mac provided

    It is pretty appalling though how hard it is to replace a part that is prone to failure. iMacs are bought by consumers, and they can't just afford to

    Sadly its not about common sense. It is about politics of best selling models motivating the board and is bucks driven. Have saw figures which estimate

    It's probably something as simple as an unupdated header.

    Hopefully common sense will prevail and Apple will keep producing some mildly open Macs. I can't see myself leaving the Apple ecosystem. I love OSX still

    A harsh reality, but a reality none-the-less. Whenever I make remarks about Apple's products, it's more of a statement of opinion. As you said though,

    I know that full on techie people are not the majority, but I would say a fairly significant number of people know about computer upgrades and would like

    Understand, but the point i'm trying to make is that it doesn't really matter what people like us think or want or otherwise. We are not in the majority
