    <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>.

    Yosemite - feeling underwhelmed

    I don't get the point of iPads

    Certainly for work the mono tasking aspect gets in the way of me using them, but for media consumption and communications I find tablets terribly useful

    What To Bring When Picking Up iPhone at Apple Retail Store?

    And, so if my 14 year old brother were to pick up an iPhone reserved in his name, I suppose all he would need is a photo ID? But I would be doing the

    iOS 8.1 is released

    OTA update for iPhone 6+ this morning, used it intermittently while at work and seems fine. Camera Roll was something I missed as well, glad it's back.

    Apple disappoints me

    The Mac Mini was a wonderful little machine when I was working on them. What they've essentially done here is gone to great lengths to cripple the machine

    Neighbour mooching off Wifi

    The offer itself isn't illegal, just the potential for said neighbours to be using this person's otherwise private internet to access/conduct illegal
