    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 :-)

    2010 MacBook Pro excruciatingly slow

    Excellent advice. I shutdown 95% of the time before logging off for the night, so it's probably not that. I've got more than 20% of disc space, but

    The new Microsoft Surface 3- What does it mean for the iPad?

    I think it's great that Apple is finally getting some serious competition in the tablet space; it will only improve things for end users. Interesting
