    Apple has removed the iWork and Aperture trials from their website, meaning you can no longer download fully-functioning demo versions of the software. Instead, the demo pages now redirect you to purchase the apps on the Mac App Store, which tells us one of three things. One, Apple finally found out about that easy iWork hack. Two, iWork and Aperture are due to be updated soon. And finally, three, the most exciting number of them all, three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three: that Apple will be bringing software trials to the Mac App Store* but that's just blatant speculation on my part, of course.

    It seems the ACCC still aren't happy with Apple and their 4G branding of the new iPad, as they're saying it can mislead customers "that the product, with a SIM card, [can] connect to a 4G mobile data network in Australia, when this is not the case." While that may be so, Apple has already clearly stated the iPad 4G is not compatible with Australian 4G networks, so what's the big deal?

    Tim Cook was spotted at Valve HQ, and consequently, there are now rumours of an Apple gaming TV. Oh, and rumours of Apple buying Valve, but that's hardly the point here, especially when Apple could be planning some gaming-related hardware.

    On that note, EA has released their official Battlelog app for iOS, meaning you can keep up with what's happening on your Battlefield 3-based social network (of sorts) when you're away from your PC. Because, you know, Macs can't play games and all that.

    New Mac malware has been discovered, this time allowing remote access to the infected Mac's contents. SabPub exploits a critical vulnerability in Microsoft Word that was patched over three years ago, and if there's any lesson to be learned here, it's that you should keep your software up to date.

    It's kinda cute that the folks in the US are making a big deal out of the Apple store within a Walmart, especially seeing as we've had that kind of thing for years. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't stores like Myer and David Jones already have mini Apple Stores within them?

    If there's one iPhone accessory you need, iPhone shutterbugs, it's the iPhone Shutter Grip. It probably won't to anything for that shutter lag, but it does give you a nice, comfortable grip to hold your iPhone with.

    Dan Provost thinks Apple nailed it with the 3:2 form factor of the iPhone, but nevertheless thinks the iPhone could do with an upsize. A slightly-smaller than 4" diagonal iPhone that keeps the magical 3:2 ratio would be slightly wider than the current, but still be manageable with one hand.

    For just US $24,995, a boxed, restored, and working Apple Lisa could be yours. Shipping will cost you close to another $2000, but that's the price you pay for a piece of history.

    There's two new Siri ads starring Samuel L Jackson in one, and Zooey Deschanel in the other which begs the question, are Apple taking their marketing strategy in a new direction? Just so long as it doesn't go in One Direction... Yes, I'll show myself out.
