If you're looking at getting an Windows Phone 7 handset just to live on the wild side, then you're in luck. <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/10/13/windows-phone-7-will-sync-to-mac/" target="_blank">Your Ballmer spawn will sync to your Mac</a>, and everything will be just fine.

    <a href="http://exchange.telstra.com.au/2010/10/15/citysearch-launch-augmented-reality-iphone-app/" target="_blank">Citysearch launched an augmented reality iPhone app</a>. While augmented reality apps aren't really anything new, or anything special, all the*augmented*reality apps that I've tried, however, just don't work that well; either because of a lack of content or because they're not localised for Australia. Hopefully this Australian-centric app will change things for us Aussies.

    <a href="http://smokingapples.com/opinion/mac-os-x-lion/" target="_blank">Smoking Apples have a brilliant analysis</a> on the next major version of iOS, Mac OSX Lolcat. Wait, I mean Ceiling Cat. Or is that Lion? Too many big cat names, too little time.

    Provided you've got a fairly recent backup of your iOS device, <a href="http://isource.com/2010/10/13/how-to-recover-iphone-app-data-after-a-clean-restore-osx/" target="_blank">you can restore pretty much any kind of information</a> (including your incredible Angry Birds save-game) to you iOS device with a couple of simple tools.

    The MobileMe Calendar is beta no more, now that Apple have promoted it from beta to fully-fledged calendar status. Hopefully you'll be seeing it the next time you visit the web interface, <a href="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/10/new-mobileme-calendar-out-of-beta-into-the-frying-ipad.ars" target="_blank">along with some handy new features, to boot</a>.

    One for the jailbreak crowd this morning is Wi-Fi sync. Version 2.0 is coming in December, along with a name-change due to the fact that <a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/10/14/wifi-sync-20-coming-december-3g-sync-enabled-jailbreak/" target="_blank">it will support over-the-air syncing over the three's of gee</a>.

    It's sad that Skype for Windows is so much better than it's Mac counterpart. Even before the new 5.0 (as in Hawaii) hit Windows, the Mac version has always been behind in terms of gloss and polish. <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/30498/new-version-of-skype-coming-to-mac-too" target="_blank">Not any more, say 9 to 5 Mac</a>.

    Anandtech ask the question: <a href="http://www.anandtech.com/print/3889" target="_blank">can the 13-inch MacBook Pro be a decent Windows*laptop</a>?

    I'm not sure if I like the bevelled look of this metal back iPhone 4 mod. It's actually insanely simple to replace the iPhone 4 back cover, <a href="http://www.unplggd.com/unplggd/how-to/add-a-metal-back-to-your-iphone-4-129754" target="_blank">and they also sell a whole lot of other cool stuff, too</a>.

    You know, I'm pretty sure there aren't many supermodels who have their very own iPhone app.*<a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/10/14/bar-refaeli-iphone-give/" target="_blank">Bar Rafeli, then, must certainly be the exception</a>. I don't know about you, but I'm holding out for the Victoria's Secret app.

    Which telco are you with? Telstra offer phone insurance for a monthly fee, must be purchased within 30 days. Other telcos may have something similar.

    I'm furious. The more I use Photos on my iPhone (I've downgraded my iPad now) it shows me how useless it is compared to iPhoto. Why not offer the option

    Yup. Those things would have been made/packaged based on rumours, before any kind of official announcement was made.
