    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/jobs1-600x4002.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-9891" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/jobs1-600x4002-147x300.jpg" alt="" width="147" height="300" /></a>The iOS 4.2 beta for all iOS devices got released overnight, ending speculation about the version that was going to "unify" the iOS platform. iOS 4.2 beta brings multitasking to the iPad and native support for Helvetica in Notes.app, and provided you've got a developer account you can install it right now for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. If you're curious, <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/15/ios-4-2-on-ipad-preview-video/" target="_blank">Engadget have a couple of videos to show you</a>.

    In what seems to be the largest departure from the traditional desktop experience I've seen yet, Raskin is a truly innovative replacement for Finder, and according to Cult of Mac, is the single best reason to go out and buy an Apple Magic Trackpad,*<a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/raskin-for-mac-will-change-the-way-you-use-the-desktop-review/59076" target="_blank">as it totally transforms the desktop experience</a>.

    Move over Twitter for iPhone! There's a new Twitter client on the block,*<a href="http://weetapp.com/" target="_blank">and it goes by the name of WeetApp</a>. It's got a gorgeous clean interface, and it's got most of the features you've come to expect in any decent Twitter application.

    Oh, this morning's iOS 4.2 beta also introduces AirPrint, a new way to print stuff from your iOS device. It only supports a couple of HP printers thus far, but*<a href="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/09/15/inside_airprint_wireless_printing_with_apples_ios_ 4_2.html" target="_blank">AppleInsider has a closer look at iOS' liberating feature</a>.

    According to a little plant inside the Foxconn*manufacturing*plants, Foxconn are making approximately 137,000 iPhones a day in their Shenzen plant. That's 90 a minute, but what's even more*intriguing*is the special investments Foxocnn had to make <a href="http://www.hardmac.com/news/2010/09/12/foxconn-are-making-137-000-iphones-a-day" target="_blank">in order to produce the high volume of the metal*components*of the iPhone 4</a>.

    When Touch Arcade say that a particular game is "what we've all been waiting for", you better believe them. Their hands-on with the upcoming Sonic 4: Episode 1 is nothing short of mind-blowingly good fun, and they're happy to report that <a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/09/10/hands-on-with-upcoming-sonic-4-episode-1-this-is-what-weve-all-been-waiting-for/" target="_blank">it's the Sonic game they've been wanting for the past 15 years</a>.

    Conspiracy*theorists run amok on OSX Daily, where they think that Google's new Google Instant technology was*<a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/09/13/did-apple-inspire-google-google-instant-is-spotlight-for-the-web/" target="_blank">inspired*(in one way or another) by Apple's Spotlight</a>.

    Can't add any more friends on Game Center? <a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/09/13/psa-game-center-friends-list-seems-to-be-capped-at-500/" target="_blank">Probably because Apple capped the friends list at 500</a>, meaning you'll have to de-friend some people if you want more friends.

    I'm not sure why the internet is making such a big deal about <a href="http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2010/09/13/gv-mobile-submitted-to-app-store-we-talk-with-sean-kovacs/" target="_blank">the re-submission of the Google Voice App to the App Store</a>. Wasn't the original controversy based around the fact that Apple didn't want it to be in competition with AT&amp;T or something along those lines?

    Something you may or may not have known about Parallels 6 <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/26472/parallels-brings-linuxwindowschomeos-to-ios-devices" target="_blank">it comes with a free iOS component</a>, bringing your virtual machines to your mobile ones.

    macrumours has both a Facebook and Twitter presence. That's more what I'm saying. People see headlines and follow through to sites of it sparks an interest.

    It seems a bit unfair to call out the 'issues' of the newer iPads while ignoring the iPad 2's drawbacks of 512Mb RAM, a slow CPU, no LTE and the non-retina

    Yes, Harry, that was the point of the article (and slamming the idiots who believe it) I thought it was really funny.
