Don't tell anyone, but <a href="http://www.newsweek.com/2010/10/03/how-android-is-transforming-mobile-computing.html" target="_blank">Android is actually transforming mobile computing as we know it</a>. Is it because of all those geeks that are unhappy with Apple's draconian App Store policies, or is it something more?

    Got an old Mac laying around at home that you can't even give away? <a href="http://damncoolpics.blogspot.com/2010/10/what-can-be-made-out-of-old-macs.html" target="_blank">Make it into something awesome today</a>! Check out the faceplates of Macs being made into clocks, and dispensers of everything from beer to toilet paper!

    Apple position the iPad as a consumption device for most consumers. That's not entirely true with a little creativity and a select app or two, <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/ipad-creative-2010-10?slop=1" target="_blank">the iPad can also be used to create some nice things</a>!

    Okay, this is seriously cool.*<a href="http://www.reactable.com/products/mobile/" target="_blank">Reactable is kinda like those Microsoft Surface demos</a> you saw a long, long time ago but the best part is that it's now available on the App Store, for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch!

    You'll remember the huge kerfuffle that happened when Applidium announced VLC for iPad but since the iPad is a perfect device for lounging around with videos, I just don't see the same thing happening for <a href="http://www.macstories.net/iphone/vlc-is-coming-to-the-iphone/" target="_blank">VLC for the iPhone</a>.

    Those of you lucky enough to nab a shiny new AppleTV might be interested to know <a href="http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/articles/comments/fifteen-new-details-on-the-second-generation-apple-tv/" target="_blank">15 new details on the next-generation media device</a>. Just like the new AppleTV's*diminutive*size, it's the small stuff that counts, you know?

    Whoever came up with <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/10/02/the-most-repulsive-iphone-charger-youll-see/" target="_blank">this iPhone charger</a> has serious mummy issues. Either that or they're just insane and/or like creating bizzare tech items. I don't know about you, but frankly I'm scarred for life.

    Creating native Mac apps from web services has me confused. I can understand when the app adds*functionality*that the website just doesn't offer (like Tweetie for Mac), but what's the point of <a href="http://www.sparrowmailapp.com/" target="_blank">Sparrow, a beta Gmail client for the Mac</a>?

    "1TapAlarm is the fastest and simplest way to setup a reminder notification for an upcoming event on your iPhone." <a href="http://www.1tapalarm.com/" target="_blank">It's available in the App Store right now</a>, and it's free.

    Choosing a name for your computer is serious business for most geeks I know, and if you're stuck choosing something witty, well, <a href="http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1178.html" target="_blank">there's an RFC document for that</a>.

    My imessages have been great since one of the Mountain Lion .x updates.. Before then messages between my iPad, iPhone and Mac were always out of sync.

    I've had that happen, and also the reverse, where wifi conversations dont turn up on the phone for ages. Or a whole bunch of messages come all at once.

    Hello screen after iOS 8.1.1 update

    Small iOS update are strange with stuff like that. Sometimes they reset network settings meaning you've got to renter wifi passwords and APN settings.

    Ignoring the fact that people are gay is never going to fix the problem, it will just make it worse. I can talk about mental health if I like. I've gone
