    Do you like melted cheese on bread with a variety of toppings? Are you a social misfit that finds calling telephone operators a far too daunting task? Then worry no more because Pizza Hut has an app for you! Order your favorite pizza from your favorite mobile browser and rejoice in the wonder of this amazing technology.

    Once again the Apple Tablet rumour is poking its head through the wall. It will apparently cost around $US800 and be available around Christmas. Look for an announcement in October.

    Last week Google (remember them?) announced that they would be building an OS based on their Chrome browser (ZOMG!!!). Sounds all well and good right? Well two Google execs sit on the Apple Board of Directors (conflict of interest anyone?) and over the next few days these two execs, most famously Google CEO Eric Schmidt, will discuss their future on the board.

    You can enable internet tethering on Vodafone, 3, Optus (for a price you bastards!!!) but not Telstra. According to cryptic Telstra spokesperson David Luff this is because of Apple NOT Telstra. However as always Telstra is on top of the game and is actively working with Apple to allow tethering. Does anyone believe that Apple would allow it on several major carriers and not on Australia's largest?

    In overseas iPhone news Apple is preparing to release a version of their iPhone for China sans wi-fi. Apparently they originally wanted to ship it with wi-fi intact but relented when they realised that it was the only way to market to an extra billion people. I would have done the same Steve...it's ok!

    If your iPhone is jailbroken then you may want to reverse that process. Apple has begun blocking push notifications on hacked iPhones. Expect the DevTeam to work out a solution within the next few minutes.

    Remember how Apple added SD cards onto the new MacBook Pro models? We all thought that was both weird and wonderful at the same time (though it was 3am so I could have just been suffering from lack of sleep). Apparently there may have been a reason. Could SD cards replace your optical drive? This guy thinks so!

    Apparently Apple recalled their line of iPod Nanos in South Korea out of fear that the battery could explode in your pockey (right by your special area)....then they didn't. If you fear that your Nano will explode, possibly losing you the ability to procreate (no pressure buddy!) then contact Apple for reassurance.

    Finally. Were you a fan of Worms, those tough-as-nails Oligochaetas that deemed it necessary to fight to the death for no apparent reason then to satisfy your own blood lust? If so rejoice! Worms has come to the iPhone and it doesn't suck! So buy that app and blast some worms :-)

    Is it possible to buy a new graphics card for my computer

    I went through the se crap with a 24" white iMac. Reballed Nvidia GPU only lasted 3 months. $300 wasted.

    Connecting multiple network shares from same server at login.

    This has been annoying me for a while but not enough to really do anything about. All of my searches bring up issues connecting entirely to a server,

    Sure you can buy them, do you have the confidence/ ability to be able to actually do it.

    It's a pretty decent job and not something most

    Thanks for clearing that up, appreciate your help and feedback.

    Is it possible to buy a new graphics card for my computer

    I have a 24 inch silver iMac. The graphics card went out. Apple wants $800 for a new board. On eBay I spent $89 for a guy to reball it. That only lasted

    The latest saga with my Macbook Pro

    Stupid question but is the charger the right wattage? If the GB did the upgrades perhaps they've nudged something. Done all the PRAM etc stuff?

    Firewall Software

    Or you could take an old PC and turn it into a firewall. There are a number of options that will offer the basics of what you want such as IPCop, Smoothwall

    Good god NO! If you want Hulu (cant imagine why anyone does, its not *that* great) you'll need to be on the US itunes store to get the US itunes content.
