    Apple have started an App Store fan page on Facebook. "Hello Hell, yes, I'd like to check if you guys have frozen over? You have? I thought so. Ballmer? Yeah, he's still alive - you can take him soon." Via the fan page, Apple will put up links to apps they recommend. It has over 28,000 fans already, so if you're a developer, this is a good thing.

    Amazon are planning to release a Kindle iPad app. Hopefully Apple allow it on to the App Store - competition is a good thing. Plus then all that content I purchased for my Kindle won't be thrown down the toilet when I sell my Kindle once the iPad comes out.

    Jean-Louis Gassée, former Apple executive, co-founder of of Be (who were supposed to be purchased by Apple, but Apple nabbed NeXT instead), is writing about how Palm stuffed it all up and should just go away and die as they're not even worth buying.

    Charlie Miller, who you may know from other security exploits as gaining remote access to a MacBook Air to win $10,000 and hacking an iPhone via SMS - is going to present at CanSecWest, a security conference in Vancouver. He plans to to expose 20 new Mac OS X exploits which revolve around Preview and PDFs. Batten down the hatches lads.

    A bunch of Germans have made a prototype iPad app called midipad - basically, it's a multi-touch MIDI controller, much like the Lemur, but cheaper and running on an iPad. If you're into music, you probably want to check this bad boy out.

    Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty wrote up a report on Apple's China efforts for investors and part of this included some enlightening research as to Apple's retail success. It seems that there is a positive correlation between Apple opening retail stores and the growth of Mac sales. So basically - more official Apple stores = more people buying Macs. Where as in the past, more Apple resellers/retailers hasn't always equalled more Mac sales. Also mentioned in that article is that Apple plans to open 25 stores in China.

    MakeMKV looks very interesting - it's a Mac app (and Windows too, but we'll ignore that) which can rip DVD and BluRay discs to the superior MKV format with one button. You can include subtitles, chapters and multiple audio tracks as well. Is it a contender for the Handbrake throne?

    If you ever ran Windows 3.1, you are probably familiar with a little game called SkiFree - it's now available for iPhone. Enjoy.

    Smoking Apples has a write-up of some classy web development tools for the Mac.

    Here's a buttload of iPad graphics and stencils you can use to make UI or other iPad-related mockups.

    Tim Cook Speaks Up

    I honestly thought this was common knowledge among Apple fans (as far as people assuming Tim way was gay that is) but I thought it was something Tim liked

    Hopefully. Seeing as it occurs in nature to a degree, it's not exactly unnatural.

    I didn't know Tim Cook was gay, but I remain unfazed by

    Did you buy it from Apple or a US carrier?

    I also thought that there were still differences between iPhones and that there was only one version

    Family Sharing and iCloud storage/Drive are broken!

    That's pretty much how we have things setup... although we have never turned on family sharing, just shared photo streams by invite (which also includes

    I agree, this would be a much better system. I currently use a hybrid of the old way and the Family Sharing. I have my family members added to Family

    And that would be the same reasoning I have for not using it. If I can't use my existing iTunes credit to pay for family purchases I might as well stick

    I think you need to reset the network settings for the data to work.
