    2976249881_a9af7723bc_bLike I said yesterday, screenshots and info about iPhone OS 3.0 beta 4 is on the interwebs. World of Apple has shots of the new stuff and The Apple Blog shows off the new feature where you can use multiple iTunes accounts on the App/Music store on the iPhone.

    This guy made a mini lampshade G4 iMac, out of Lego, and threw in a working 7" LCD that can plug in to it's bigger brother G4 iMac, ala the infamous Pixar Luxo short. Lego, Pixar and iMacs. What more can an Apple fanboy want?

    Andy Warhol did a serigraph (I didn't know what that is either, but I researched and it is "a printed design produced by means of a silkscreen."), of the Apple/Macintosh logo back in the 80s, which was commissioned by Apple's first COO, Del Yocam in the early 80's. It's currently up for sale, but unfortunately, it's valued at US$30k. Totally worth it though. Possibly the ultimate Apple collectable bar an original Apple I.



    Apple's 5th Avenue Store is the 5th most photographed landmark in New York. It's even been photographed more than the Statue of Libery according to Flickr.

    Extrapolate what you will from this, but you know how Jobs wants that old house knocked down? Well there was a council meeting about it, Jobs was supposed to attend. He didn't. His lawyer said to the council "I donít think he would be strong enough if we were here until 1 a.m., and I think thereís a strong possibility of that" - so the conspiracy theory nuts amongst us (or Apple shareholders) have interpreted this to mean Steve Jobs can't even leave the house, lest he die of stress.

    Maxtrox have a PCI Express card called the CompressHD, which is dedicated to encoding H264 video. if you have a Mac Pro and encode video often, you want this okay. According to the press release, the CompressHD can turn a 90 minute encode into a meagre 18 minutes. Very cool. I want one. But I need a Mac Pro.

    Firemint are to blame for your loss of friends, poor performance at work and half-rate sex life with your partner, because they made Flight Control and the game is so addictive, it leads to this sort of behaviour. It made Firement a shitload of cash. They've put up a PDF analysing the sales of the game on App Store. Interesting reading. If you can't be arsed reading it all, or you read it and didn't understand it, TechCrunch sum it up nicely.

    Bluetooth 3 is coming soon. It is going to be pretty freakin' sweet. Gizmodo explains why. I hope Apple put it on the next iPhone and in new Macs, so one can sync their iPhone without plugging it in. That would be superb.

    Microsoft has a dev preview of Office 2010 for Windows. Steven Frank looks at it and tells us what he thinks. I was going to write the same thing, but, like, I didn't want to. I totally could if I wanted to though.

    MOTU has released Volta. It's an app that has something to do with analog synths and voltages and controlling things better. I don't really understand, but it's apparently a big deal in the music circles. Create Digital Music has more info.

    Need a quiet keyboard!

    At work I use a Dell wireless keyboard which is clicky and probably cost all of $2 to make. While its a dreadful keyboard to type on, its "good enough".

    Netflix+ Apple Tv

    PlexConnect can be a bit complicated. Best check the PLex forums, and also for OpenPlex which makes the whole thing really easy.
