    This <a href="http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2466?viewlocale=en_US" target="_blank">Apple support article on how to pick up and carry your iMac G5</a> wins the award for the most useful Apple support document, ever. Alternatively, there's also the one that tells you <a href="http://support.apple.com/kb/TA47226?viewlocale=en_US" target="_blank">how to do the same thing for your iMac (flat panel)</a>.

    With iOS 4.2 just out of the gates, what better than to begin rumours about iOS 4.3? MacStories tell us that <a href="http://www.macstories.net/news/ios-4-3-to-launch-in-mid-december-with-app-subscriptions/" target="_blank">iOS 4.3 is slated to drop sometime mid-December</a>, and will also reportedly bring "app subscriptions".

    So, um, someone went and <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2010/11/22/fifth-ave-apple-store-recreated-in-minecraft/" target="_blank">created the flagship Fifth Avenue Apple Store in Minecraft</a>. What have you done today?

    What's so badass about the new MobileMe login page? According to BadassJS.com, the <a href="http://badassjs.com/post/1649735994/the-new-mobileme-login-page-has-some-badass-js" target="_blank">Javascript on the new MobileMe login page is pretty badass</a>. So badass.

    In what was possibly the most overhyped launch in the history of Apple, there's no denying the fact that <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/37518/beatles-itunes-sales-2-million-songs-450000-albums" target="_blank">the*release*of the Beatles on iTunes has been popular</a> - so popular, in fact, that they've sold 2 million songs and some 450,000 albums. Try not to be too impressed.

    Opera 11 is an alternative web browser for the Mac that isn't Chrome or Firefox <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/155931/2010/11/opera_beta_11.html" target="_blank">that sports some pretty unique features</a>, and a beta for Mac is available for you to try right now.

    What, exactly, is an untethered jailbreak? And how does it differ to a tethered one? <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/24/tethered-jailbreak-vs-untethered-jailbreak/" target="_blank">OSX Daily have all the answers</a>.

    As terrible as the new text message tones in iOS 4.2 are (I'm using Calypso as it isn't <em>that </em>terrible), you'd have to wonder <a href="http://www.tipb.com/2010/11/23/text-tones-42-iphone-3g3gs/" target="_blank">why devices just one generation behind don't get them</a>. Chalk this one up to another one of Apple's strange decisions just don't cry "deliberate*obsolescence*strategy".

    If you've always wanted a Parrot.AR Drone but haven't had the cash to shell out for one from the US, good news the awesome iPhone-controlled flying machine is coming to Australia, and will be <a href="http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/article/369012/parrot_ar_drone_now_flying_australia/" target="_blank">sold exclusively through Telstra and Fone Zone stores from the 30th of*November*for $349</a>.

    Lost mailboxes in Mail

    I don't think Mail.app randomly destroys mailboxes, but it might be worth trying a question in Apple Discussions as well. THis isn't something I've heard

    Several sold on eBay in the last month for $100 - $150 so $50 is too low.

    How's the screen? Any vertical lines? I'd think $75-$100 in full working order is pretty fair.

    I sold a 2.0ghz Core 2 Duo version (17")

    A 4.1 iMac was released in January 2006 and can only run up to Snow Leopard OS X.6. Think anything over $50 would be good value.

    Airport Extreme PPPoE auth and wireless

    I would have thought this was as simple as plugging the incoming line into the WAN connector, setting up the PPPoE and turning the Wireless on.
