    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.

    Enough screen damage to replace the LCD?

    A couple of years ago I took my 17" MBP (Late 2011) into the Apple Store to get them to look at a squeaky hinge, left it with them for a couple of

    Apple Return after 15 Days

    No. Encoding might be slightly quicker on new one. I wouldn't bother.

    iPhone 3GS "popped"

    I managed to revive my bf's old Nokia 6230 (Nokia 6230 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), purchased second hand from eBay in 2006 for his world backpacking

    Do you want a bigger screen for the iPhone 6?

    I have a bigger screen already, iPad mini. With that and a nicely sized iPhone 5 - that's all I want. I saw a woman in the street with some sort of android

    Fantastical - vs Calendar

    Following the last update of Fantastical I thought I'd give it another try, so far, so good. Nice having calendar and Reminders in one app.

    I was just surprised to see this done on a MacBook Pro. That said, I now have a screen with uniform blacks across the screen and no other issues to speak

    I believe the MacBook Air of that era is glued in place so it's all or nothing. Given the thin-ness of the display it's not a huge surprise. Probably

    rMBP Updated 29/7/14 - nVidia GPU Worth it Over Intel Iris?

    There's not much point in upgrading until at least Broadwell is released If you've got a MacBook Pro released in the last 3 years purely in terms of CPU.

    So I found out today it wasn't just the LCD they replaced, they didn't even bother. Apple just went ahead and replaced the entire top case. It seems when
