    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/3323110_12e2d4a1e3.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-11404" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/3323110_12e2d4a1e3-241x300.jpg" alt="" width="241" height="300" /></a>In a country where the iPhone is easily acquired and able to be legitimately unlocked, sometimes it's easy to forget those who aren't as fortunate. Which is kind of why the Dev-Team have come through again and <a href="http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/1718400992/ultra-recycle" target="_blank">released a free carrier unlock for iPhone 3G and 3GS owners</a> with a baseband later than 05.13.04, really.

    For a lot of companies, brand loyalty is something that means a lot to them. It should really come as no surprise, then, that <a href="http://thenextweb.com/mobile/2010/11/29/in-the-smartphone-market-apple-users-remain-the-most-loyal/" target="_blank">Apple users are some of the most loyal</a>, especially in the smartphone market.

    Computerworld think that 2011 will be the year Apple kill the optical drive, just like they did with floppies all those years ago. They provide some pretty evidence to support their theory, <a href="http://blogs.computerworld.com/17430/2011_will_apple_kill_the_optical_drive" target="_blank">so go over and have a read</a>.

    According to the Silicon Valley Mercury News, there was no economic crisis this year. Well, at least not for Apple, anyway. In fact, they even go so far as to say <a href="http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_16703362?source=most_viewed" target="_blank">Apple had (and are still having) a spectacular year</a>.

    "Sony unveiled plans to deliver a mobile development platform based on an open source version of Apple's OpenStep and Cocoa technologies, shortly before announcing the project was put on hold",<a href="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/11/27/sony_adopts_then_drops_cocoa_like_gnustep_plans_to _rival_apple_ios.html" target="_blank"> say AppleInsider</a>.

    There are a lot of possible reasons Apple offers free engraving on products like the iPod, but one possible reason is that <a href="http://elidourado.com/blog/free-engraving/" target="_blank">they want to diminish the second-hand market for such products</a>.

    Somewhat unsurprisingly, Apple rejected <a href="http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2010/11/26/apple-bans-android-magazine-app/" target="_blank">a developer who submitted an Android magazine app to the App Store</a>. Can anyone say conflict of interest?

    Using your iPhone as a controller for your iPad is old hat now. Nay, the real hotness is using your iPhone as a controller for you Mac, <a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/11/29/video-of-chopper-2-for-mac-using-an-iphone-as-a-controller/" target="_blank">as demonstrated by Chopper 2</a>.

    Hey, look! With this handy tip, <a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/29/zoom-into-finder-column-previews" target="_blank">zooming into the Finder column view previews is really, really easy</a>. And oh-so-useful, too!

    Did you know that iOS 4.2 actually allows you to change the font in Notes? Not only that, but if you cheat a little and use your Mac, <a href="http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20101124223757191" target="_blank">you can also use any font family, style, size, or colour</a>! The more you know, huh.

    I have a stock Apple 512GB that came in my rMBP and haven't needed to upgrade yet. I thought mine was still the mSATA not the M2 but haven't had a need

    I also suggest looking into SSD upgrades, as it can make later model Core 2 Duo machines perform very well!

    From memory, the early SSD's are mSATA (up to early 2013) and I've replaced a couple in the 2011 MacBook Air's, easy as.
