    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 :-)

    What's happened to mac talk?

    I still visit, read and sometimes even contribute but there are so many other similar avenues I use as well.
    IMHO all forums have a life cycle

    Would an app from another account make it onto your iPhone without at least the computer being authorised?

    As for music/movies, same question.

    For the record, if Niche is willing, there are people like myself willing to help out or even buy-in/out.

    I have stuck with iPhoto as well as I didn't like the early reviews and info I was reading about Photos.

    However, now I'm really missing

    It's nothing to do with the phone. It's to do with you having a music file or whatever that you put onto the new phone that had an appleID attached to

    Macbook Pro Retina keeps crashing

    I went to Apple Highpoint the other day. I can't fault their service. I had random crashes when using Chrome, and he ran a bunch of tests and suggested

    We had a brief discussion about this in the Moderators forum a few weeks ago, and unfortunately the consensus from us is that without Niche handing over

    I'm not being paranoid, I'm just curious who exactly you're talking about as I never see Niche employees around, I haven't really for a year or so.
