Scott Forstall, one of the engineers that followed Steve to Apple from NeXT. Scott Forstall, one of the original*architects*of Mac OS X. Scott Forstall, senior vice president of iOS software at Apple.

    Well, would you look at that. You can now*<a href="http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/2010/11/google-docs-editing-finally-comes-to-iphone-ipad-android-22.ars" target="_blank">edit your Google Docs documents from your iOS device</a>, but Android users need a specific version of Android in order to do so. So much for that "non-fragmentation" argument, huh?

    I've been waiting for a big-name accessory manufacturer to make a wrist-strap for the new iPod Nano for a while now, and*<a href="http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/slap" target="_blank">it looks like Griffin have delivered that in spades</a>.

    Fermi is just another name that Nvidia have dreamt up for one of their graphics card lineups, and while much has already been said about how power-hungry and how hot they run, there's no denying <a href="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/11/nvidia-brings-fermi-quadro-4000-kicking-mostly-screaming-to-mac.ars" target="_blank">they're currently one of the fastest graphics cards available on the market today</a>. Oh, and they're coming to the Mac as well.

    Some people have come up with a way to have some sort of 3D effect on the iPhone. With some smoke and mirrors (maybe not so much smoke), getting 3D output from your iPhone is <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2010/11/16/found-footage-palm-top-3d-theater-creates-peppers-ghost-on-the/" target="_blank">as easy as snapping on a mirror-laden*contraption</a>.

    Why isn't there a website that has entertaining headlines? I mean, Mac AppStorm could have gone with "<a href="http://mac.appstorm.net/roundups/graphics-roundups/mac-design-software-20-vector-bitmap-and-web-design-apps/" target="_blank">20 vector, bitmap, and web design apps you should probably take a look at</a>", but instead they've gone with the ultra-boring "Mac Design Software: 20 Vector, Bitmap, and Web Design Apps".

    No doubt you've heard of the six degrees of separation theory. No doubt you've played Wiki Hunt, a game which forces you to find specific Wikipedia articles using links from other Wikipedia articles. <a href="http://www.creativeapplications.net/games/3-degrees-of-wikipedia-iphone/" target="_blank">Three degrees of Wikipedia combines these two into one super app</a>.

    The official client for Twitter was updated not too long ago, <a href="http://blog.twitter.com/2010/11/instant-notifications.html" target="_blank">bringing long-awaited push notifications for mentions and direct messages</a> to everyone's favourite platform. I think I'll stick to Boxcar though, purely because "quiet times" are*indispensable.

    <a href="http://iconfactory.com/home/permalink/2270" target="_blank">Astronut is a cool little game from The Iconfactory</a> for iPhone and iPod Touch that brings some pretty cool space-age gameplay. Simple to pick up, and it's free! (Full version available as an in-app purchase.)

    The <a href="http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/?nov2010" target="_blank">November 2010 Steam Hardware Survey is now out</a>,*and, as usual, gives some interesting insights into the world of PC (and for the first time, Mac!) gaming.

    Who says they're not going to do that as well? The iPod event used to be in September/October before the iPhone got moved to post WWDC.

    That could be, though I'd imagine they might want to wait for an iPod refresh/music event for that?
