    Another version of OS X around the corner, <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/10/26/will-mac-os-x-10-7-lion-use-zfs/" target="_blank">another round of ZFS rumours</a>. Nothing too new here folks, but as always there are certain signs one can correlate to an all-new file system.

    If Apple can steam video footage of the two most recent presentations all around the world, you can be pretty sure they can <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/32241/itunes-live-streams-to-australia" target="_blank">steam video to Australians via the ARIA Awards Concert Series app</a>.

    Behold,*<a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/10/26/idos/" target="_blank">the story of iDOS</a>. Joining the ranks of those apps such as Camera+ and that notorious flashlight application I don't quite remember the name of, iDOS was pulled from the App Store within hours of its approval, probably because it allowed you to install Windows 3.0. Never fear though, it's still available via Cydia under the name DOSPAD.

    <a href="http://facelette.com/" target="_blank">Facelette</a>. It's like chatroulette, but with more Apple products and stuff.

    Riding on the crest of the PlayStation Portable's success, Sony think they'll be able to <a href="http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2010/10/26/playstation-phone-images-revealed/" target="_blank">break into the mobile gaming market with their Playstation Phone</a>.

    With over 1.3 billion people in China, it's almost a no-brainer that <a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/apple-launches-online-store-in-china/66128" target="_blank">Apple just launched their online store there</a> just last night. If you run the numbers, this makes sense: only four retail outlets, but many, many more people that can access the internet. And free shipping, too!

    Is there a white iPhone at the end of the tunnel? <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/26/apple-delays-white-iphone-4-into-spring-2011/" target="_blank">Not until about Spring 2011</a> if Apple have anything to say about it. If it makes you feel any better though, you can now pre-order the mythical white iPhone on that Apple Store app that, you know, isn't actually available in the Australian App Store.

    Sometimes, power users of OS X want a little more. Sometimes, you just have to refer to <a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/roundups/mac-software-for-advanced-os-x-users-70-apps/" target="_blank">ultra-lists of Mac software for advanced users</a>.

    Having trouble identifying which model of MacBook Air you have? Luckily for you, <a href="http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3255" target="_blank">there's an Apple support document for that</a>.

    Speaking of Mac OS X Lion, there are some executives at MGM who <a href="http://scoopertino.com/mgm-to-apple-find-your-own-cat/" target="_blank">aren't too happy about Apple's new choice of big cat</a>. Apple lawyers pointed out there were some obvious differences between the MGM lion and the Apple lion, such as the Apple lion featuring a mane.

    Don't "Moments" and "Collections" address the same need? Combined with location data, it makes it pretty easy to find photos in the

    Your Events still show up in Photos (but they are now an Album). They should all be in your iPhotos Events Folder. You can then view by Album and you

    I thought i was insane as all the folks over at Mac-rumours are praising it like it is the best thing that ever happened on the Mac... (Well thats an

    I tried it this morning, against my better judgement. Only half of my photos migrated over, nothing showed up from the past two years of photos. I freaked

    They're perfect for organisation. Events are great for groups of photos from particular days, auto created so I don't have to do it myself. I can then

    I understand your concern, but really, what are Events in terms of organizing a collection? They're a machine-driven process, and I could never get with

    To be fair it's a lot more than iPhoto. It's a genuine Lightroom/Aperture competitor. I can't afford it right now either but I'm enjoying the trial

    Except if you used Events... which you can't use anymore.... Which is quite annoying, when your whole organisation was based around that.

    Whilst not as organised as yourself, my Photos library is organised well enough that I can quickly find most of my photos too.

    I used to

    I'm not sure what I've done right, but I have a fairly well organized iPhoto library comprising around 15,000 images arranged in 53 albums. I have used
