    The Genius Bar with my name in lights at number 2 by Shaun Garrity

    Welcome to the casual Friday edition of the Mactalk daily news.

    Last week ended with the story breaking that Apple was close to buying Beats Electronics. Despite all that has been written this week, as yet there is no deal done.

    In fact the team at re/code tell us that it likely wonít be closed until next week.

    Given the re/code team have in the past, particularly as the All Things D team at the WSJ, seemed to have ...

    Good morning Mactalkers and welcome to the Thursday morning news.

    Some interesting items to look at this morning.

    It seems despite the chorus of people predicting doom for Apple it just keeps on selling its products. This time we have a report on the growth in market share in Japan for the iPhone to kick things off.

    iPhone market share grows in Japan

    Bloomberg reports that Apple saw its share of the Japanese market to 36.6% up from 25.5% a year earlier according to MM Research Institute Ltd.

    The Glass Stairs (by Me)

    Happy hump day Mactalkers.

    Lotís of rumours to report, still no deal on the Beats Acquisition but that doesnít seem to be stopping people writing about it!

    As I settle into the new seat, feel free to message me about what you might like to see in the daily news.

    At the moment I am steering clear of the purported mock up of the iPhones 6 but hey you might think that is exactly what we need to be bringing you here. Also not boring you with all the Beats writing until there is something more concrete.

    Anyway on with the news and oh thankfully there will be no budget updates.

    Is NFC finally coming to the iPhone ...

    Day 2 as the local Mactalk newshound and already surprised at the places you find Apple news.

    So put those Beats headphones aside and read on fellow Mactalkers as we visit our very own Sunshine Coast to start the daily news round up.

    Sunshine Coast Man lays claim to a major aspect of the Carplay system

    Mactalker Goodbye found a interesting story in the Sunshine Coast Daily about the local Tony Magrathea, who claims Apple stole his idea for their Carplay system.

    Looking down at the Logo, Apple Store Sydney by Shaun Garrity

    Perhaps the biggest shoes to fill around Mactalk these days are those of bennyling and his daily news updates.

    Somewhat bravely, or perhaps stupidly, I have put my hands up to take over the daily news.

    So without further ado, here is my debut Monday morning news.

    Nokiaís own camera guy joins Apple

    Before diving into the review lets get something out of the way. This game is not free and there is no in game purchase option. It costs a not small by iOS standards $12.99 to buy up front.

    Given the saturation of freemium games on the App store, I for one welcome this. I donít mind rewarding a developer and the team at subset games deserve a reward for this gem of a game.

    FTL was started as a kickstarter project and the PC version was multi award winning including IGN Game of the Year 2012.

    If you supported it on kickstarter, be sure to check the credits were the names of all the backers are scrolled on by (set a bit of time aside if you have a late in the alphabet surname).
