Now,*<a href="http://news.cnet.com/8301-13924_3-20022746-64.html?part=rss&amp;subj=news&amp;tag=2547-1_3-0-20" target="_blank">the new MacBook Air is cannibalising*iPad sales</a>. There's some sort of witty joke I can make here, but nothing's coming to me at the moment.

    Thanks in part to Android's openness, you can now <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/10/bootlace-lets-you-install-froyo-on-your-iphone-without-a-compute/" target="_blank">install Android 2.2 over the air on a jailbroken iPhone 3G</a>. The application is called Bootlace, and it's available via the Cydia market right now.

    <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2010/11/12/new-claim-of-ios-4-2-launch-on-november-24th-as-revised-ipad-build-surfaces/" target="_blank">Build 8C134b of iOS 4.2 for iPad was released over the weekend</a>, prompting speculation that Apple have delayed the official release until November 24 - which, you know, is still exactly in line with what Steve said.

    It's funny, with all the fuss about iOS 4.2 for iPad not much has been said about iOS 4.2 for iPhone -- thankfully, TUAW have got their brains screwed on correctly and released <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2010/11/10/what-to-expect-from-ios-4-2-on-iphone/" target="_blank">a guide for those of us sans iPad</a>.

    Skyfire is the highly*sought-after app that lets you play Flash video on the iPhone thanks to some intermediary server technology, and according to 9to5Mac, <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/34972/skyfire-makes-1m-in-its-opening-week" target="_blank">it made 1 million dollars in its opening week</a>.

    From the guys that brought you your very own ocarina (sadly, not of time) on the iPhone comes <a href="http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/11/10/introducing-magic-fiddle-for-ipad-from-smule-video/" target="_blank">another great music-oriented app, Magic Fiddle</a>.

    EDGE has been a game that's suffered a bit of controversy over its life in the App Store, but thankfully those issues are behind us and <a href="http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/11/11/edge-now-available-for-ipad-press-release/" target="_blank">there's even an iPad version now, to boot</a>.

    If you've heard anything about the Samsung Nexus S <a href="http://www.bgr.com/2010/11/11/samsungs-nexus-s-officially-outed/" target="_blank">you'll know that it's the new Nexus One</a>, which means direct support from Google. In the Android world, That's a Big Deal. Imagine if Apple suddenly decided to favour the iPhone over all other iOS devices.

    There are many that say that the App Store could do with some Android Market features, like 24-hour trials of apps. The iPhone Blog have a <a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/11/12/ios-5-app-store-demos-upgrades-subscriptions/" target="_blank">wishlist for iOS 5 that includes an App Store overhaul</a>.

    If you're like me and haven't used Ping since it was introduced all those months ago, then you're in luck as <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/13/disable-ping-in-itunes-10-1/" target="_blank">iTunes 10.1 now lets you disable Ping</a>.

    The new Microsoft Surface 3- What does it mean for the iPad?

    I think it's great that Apple is finally getting some serious competition in the tablet space; it will only improve things for end users. Interesting

    One of my biggest annoyances with the surface (and windows tablets in general) is the inclusion of the desktop mode. For the average user it just shouldn't
