Now, on the eve of the iPhone OS 4.0 announcement (we think), Wired ask the question: <a href="http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/01/wither-the-dongleware">where are all those special-purpose iPhone accessories</a>? Indeed!

    The Apple tablet. Gizmodo throw all their eggs into one blog post and spew forth what could only be described as the most in-depth, if speculative, piece on <a href="http://gizmodo.com/5452501/the-apple-tablet-interface-must-be-like-this">what the Apple tablet will be like</a>. Magical!

    If you've got a large enough ego,* you too can have your own iPhone app - one which aggregates your own content, from various social feeds such as Twitter, Flickr, Posterous, Tumblr, and more. <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2010/01/21/make-your-personal-iphone-app-in-just-10-minutes/">All for just $25</a>! Awesome!

    iPhoto features some pretty powerful colour-correction tools. Mastering those tools can be pretty tricky, though - MacWorld guide you through <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/145795/2010/01/fixcolorsiniphoto.html">how to fix your photos</a>. Incredible!

    Mac AppStorm (who are apparently Australian guys) take us through <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/how-to/video-how-to/step-by-step-guide-for-importing-a-dvd-to-itunes/">how to import DVDs into iTunes</a>. Ingenius!

    In case you haven't seen it already, the BookBook is a case for your MacBook with a twist - <a href="http://www.twelvesouth.com/products/bookbook/">it actually disguises your beloved Mac as a book</a>. Marvellous!

    There's now an app to <a href="http://www.creativeapplications.net/iphone/asciime-iphone/">create your very own ASCII art on your iPhone</a>. Stupendous!

    Why hasn't anyone thought of this before - Engadget show off a USB charger that can <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/22/dualink-cable-charges-two-iphones-on-one-usb-port-no-problem/">charge two iPods or iPhones at the same time</a>. Amazing!

    Silicon Alley Insider have <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/henry-blodget-new-apple-tablet-details-leaked-2010-1">the latest hot goss on the Apple tablet</a>. Fantastic!

    <a href="http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010/01/windows-7-growing-faster-than-vista-overtakes-mac-os.ars">Windows 7 has overtaken Mac OS X</a> in terms of worldwide market share - and <a href="http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/01/23/steam-shows-massive-adoption-of-windows-7-by-gamers/">23% of Steam users are also using Windows 7</a>. Surprising!

    It should be brilliant, IF you've got an Apple TV and an iPhone, or iPad, SBS On Demand and ABC iView are two must have apps.
