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.
