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.

    Need to rant - possible HDD issues

    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

    I've had a number of pretty average users wanting upgraded hard drives over the past year and upgraded ram is also a thing people talk about. Mac users

    Yeah, there are some badly borked links there. Someone's not doing their job. If you right click and try to open the images in a new tab you'll see

    I think this is the crux of it. Even though nearly everyone on MacTalk might think it's important to be able to upgrade their machines, we are in a tiny

    File types being changed when copying to flash drive

    I don't know how important they are to the process of importing emails, but I don't think it will matter too much what the Finder thinks they are, because

    Almost certainly the hard drive. When I was servicing Macs professionally, It was such a common occurrence that I would often end the diagnostics as soon

    All Intel iMacs (and most G5 iMacs too) have always made it hard to upgrade the HD, but you don't need specialised tools - suction cups aren't necessary

    I dont believe the files in question have extensions as 'File > Get Info > Name & Extension' shows nothing. However the files are associated

    AGREED! AGREED! Apple has sacrificed too much to obtain thinness on the desktop. How freaking thin does an iMac need to be.

    I am unsure
