    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/1048016_550_art_R01.jpeg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-11321" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/1048016_550_art_R01-215x300.jpg" alt="" width="215" height="300" /></a><a href="http://ihnatko.com/2010/11/22/now-ios-4-2-is-here-and-installed/" target="_blank">Andy Ihnatko gives his opinion on iOS 4.2 for iPad</a>, and his thoughts echo Steve Jobs' on the matter; he too is wondering if there will be any decent iPad competitors.

    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>.

    eBay suggests 2011 Macbook Pro 13 inches (so Sandy Bridge i5) are going for around $650. If you need a laptop - I'd recommend finding a reputable vendor

    Just a thought on places to look - the refurb store can be good value. There were previous model i5 Mac minis on there a few weeks ago that were $529

    Honestly, I just am sick of Windows. Games aren't that big a deal for me. I have so many programs I own on OS X that I don't want to pay for again or

    I don't have access to the trading forums yet as I haven't made five posts since I don't want to post when I have no purpose other than to get five posts.
