    <a href="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/1980s1.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-10156" src="http://www.mactalk.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/1980s1-201x300.jpg" alt="" width="201" height="300" /></a>Your required reading this morning comes courtesy of Macworld, who present us with <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/154036/2010/09/osxorigins.html" target="_blank">a very good history of OSX</a>. If you didn't already know, OSX officially turned ten years old a week or so ago!

    Not much is known about the iPhone 5, thanks to Apple's secretive methods of operation. What is perhaps speculated about, however,*<a href="http://osxdaily.com/2010/09/21/iphone-5-to-use-4g/" target="_blank">is the fact that the iPhone 5 will use 4G technology</a>, and perhaps even feature an all new metal housing with integrated antenna.

    You've seen the services menu in OSX it's the one that allows you to mail any selected text, look it up in the*dictionary, and so much more.*<a href="http://releasecandidateone.com/221:a_services_menu_for_iphone" target="_blank">What if the services menu were to come to iOS</a>? (Note: if the video on the page doesn't work,*<a href="http://releasecandidateone.com/assets/Services-menu-for-iPhone.m4v" target="_blank">try the direct link</a> (1.6MB M4V)).

    So Windows 7 has this cool feature where if you mouseover (chuckle) an applications icon in the taskbar, it will pop up a small preview of the application window(s). <a href="http://kapeli.com/dockview/" target="_blank">DockView does exactly that on OSX</a>.

    Reeder for Mac is just around the corner, <a href="http://www.macstories.net/mac/exclusive-preview-reeder-for-mac/" target="_blank">judging by these screenshots</a>. I'm glad Silvio went with a native app rather than just a re-skin, because it looks brilliant if a little reminiscent of Reeder for iPad, with it's triple-column layout.

    News about Tweetie 2 for Mac has been lacking or just plain*misconstrued*ever since Twitter bought out Loren, but confirmation comes today that <a href="http://www.macstories.net/mac/tweetie-2-for-mac-is-alive-and-it-will-be-free/#more-10415" target="_blank">Tweetie 2 for Mac is alive and kicking</a>! Soon, people, soon.

    Perhaps you've seen the*phenomenal*power of Chrome to Phone on your Android-buddy's handset. Perhaps you've been just a little bit jealous. Be jealous no more, as*<a href="http://www.macstories.net/iphone/myphonedesktop-1-5-still-my-favorite-browser-to-iphone-app/" target="_blank">myPhoneDesktop will solve nearly all of your browser-to-phone needs</a>.

    Another day, another issue with those darn white iPhone 4s. This time around it's <a href="http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/09/21/white-iphone-4-delayed-due-to-proximity-sensor-malfunction-rumor/" target="_blank">an issue with the proximity sensor not working at all</a>, and judging by your complaints about the proximity sensor on the current black iPhone, that would be bad.

    Did you ever have an Etch A Sketch? Do you have an iPad? Well, <a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/is-the-official-etch-a-sketch-case-for-ipad-the-coolest-case-there-is/59983" target="_blank">how about an Etch A Sketch iPad case</a>?

    Apple's Apple Store app is available to download from the Apple US App Store, and it was recently updated to support retina graphics. Coincidentally, <a href="http://www.ifoapplestore.com/db/2010/09/19/apple-updates-retail-store-app/" target="_blank">it also revealed the locations of new Apple stores</a>.

    Apple TV Won't Find Update ?

    If one of your Apple TVs is a 2nd generation model it won't receive the update. The update only applies to 3rd generation models. I'm guessing you may

    It should be brilliant, IF you've got an Apple TV and an iPhone, or iPad, SBS On Demand and ABC iView are two must have apps.
