Younger Than The iPad 2 – there’s a bit of blah blah in this post, but it still makes a valid point, that the iPad2 is still a usable device (hey I have one and still use it, and would only be upgrading for the reason of having something new and shiny). Tags: Apple
Probably the sort of thing that’s good to know before you go out and buy one of the new Retina MBPs, they horrible to repair, so pray they never fail. Tags: Apple

The title on this one pretty much says it all - the iOS Design Cheat Sheet is a collection of useful information for iOS developers. When you are designing a lot of applications for Apple’s touch devices like the iPhone or iPad you often have to follow some conventions regarding sizes or radii of Icons, Buttons or Tables. Because it is always a big time loss if you have to search on the Web for this information again and again, I’ve put the most important specifications into a nice iOS Design Cheat Sheet. Useful....

While reading about the new iMacs I noticed a rather amusing little line describing Bootcamp: Boot Camp is Apple's software that allows users to install Windows 7 on their Intel-based Mac. It’s kind of amusing and reassuring that Windows 7 is the only choice when it comes to Windows versions, and that it didn’t take too long for this to happen. Tags: Apple, Microsoft, Windows

Not sure whether 11.6 vs. 13.3 is a good move, but as always it’ll depend on the feel of the device as a whole. More what made me stop and marvel at this article is the fact that article reminds us that the MacBook Air was unveiled in January of 2008. Wow. That seems like a very long time ago indeed.

Four Generations of the iPhone from Chris Pinnock on Vimeo. Some interesting timing tests for comparison – if you own a 3GS at the moment it’s going to be hard justifying an upgrade to a 4 for performance reasons. Tags: Apple, iPhone

Windows Live Messenger arrives on iPhone – yay! I was looking for a good messenger client a few weeks back, so now that I see this I’m glad I gave up looking. The official version looks good – biggest benefit is that it supports sign ons from multiple locations, which is the biggest thing missing from most non official Messenger implementations.

Has Steve Jobs gone mad? I think it’s a trick question, but you can form your own conclusion. Either way a reduction in the range of development tools for any platform can only be a bad thing. Tags: Apple

The mStand is designed for the Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro, but is “suitable” for all laptops. While it might seem a bit silly that your Mac needs a special stand, they do look to make a lot of sense if you’re using an Apple Cinema display. Tags: Apple
Apple updates Boot Camp, drivers for Windows 7. These updates apparently add Windows 7 support for the Mighty Mouse, however I can’t get mine to work as yet. More testing required. However, all is forgiven because they’ve fixed the hyper sensitivity of the trackpad’s tap to click functionality which was a complete deal breaker, so I’m happy (and haven’t given up on the Mighty Mouse yet). On a side note it always makes me laugh when I have a post that combines these 2 tags: Tags: Apple, Windows
The Smart Mac: Smart Folders in OS X is a quick summary of smart folders – useful if you’ve not played with them a lot before. Interesting to read that they were a feature which came through from BeOS. Tags: Apple
MonoTouch allows developers to create C# and .NET applications which will run on the iPhone and iPod touch. MonoTouch allows developers to create C# and .NET based applications that run on Apple's iPhone and Apple's iPod Touch devices, while taking advantage of the iPhone APIs and reusing both code and libraries that have been built for .NET, as well as existing skills. Interesting. Think I'll stick with XCode for now though. Tags: Apple, Microsoft, iPhone, .NET
Cinch is a piece of software which adds window positioning features similar to Windows 7 to OSX. Looks neat, and especially useful to people who switch between Windows 7 and OSX (thanks Sonic!). Tags: Apple, OSX

iPhone root password cracked in three days. I like the thought that the passwords were "intentionally included to throw hackers off the scent". Apple users pretty much live in a permanent state of being afraid that their machines will become insecure one day. I guess that's because it would kill 50% of their source material for advertising campaigns.

Fake Steve explains why Apple will be bigger than IBM in a couple of years.
Right now we're at about $100 billion and they're at $160 billion. But they're treading water and we're just getting going. Another key difference of course is that we're a tech company.

Quite often when I say bad things about iTunes, people will send me email and tell me I'm wrong. So here's the one, main, annoying thing which is preventing me from running iTunes (on Windows) for more than 10 mins before I get annoyed with it: I want to be able to have it running with the library showing OR in the mini player and NOT show up on my Taskbar (Tasktray is fine, and desirable).
Interestingly enough it's my main gripe with the current MSN Messenger clients too - there are some things which run all the time which...
The iPhone looks very sexeh indeed. There's nothing more I can really add to the fray of people already talking about it, but I did want to comment on something I found rather amusing. While watching the news last night, they showed a clip from ABC (I think) - it had this great shot of reports/media people crowded around a prototype iPhone in a glass case, taking photos of it with their cameras or (more commonly) with their existing cameraphones. There was something incredibly comical about people pointing their cellphones at this glass encased mobile phone god. It looked like...
New Zealand iTunes Store is now available as an option in iTunes. Sounds like the prices are pretty reasonable. Guess it might have been worth the 2-3 year wait after all.Technorati tags: Apple, iTunes
London reclaims biggest Apple Store accolade as they open their Regent Street store. The store now offers 28,000 square feet of personalised selling space, and I bet it has a very strong smell of hackey sack.Technorati tags: Apple, iTunes
This reminds me of appliances which come with packaging which absolutely needs to be removed - normally these are heaters and microwave ovens and such like. Seems the Macbook pro is going to join that list of appliances with their latest slip up.

Apparently, according to this article on slashdot iPod owners are less likely to download music using filesharing software than owners of other MP3 players.
There are a few reasons they mention for this, but here's another possible one not mentioned: Maybe they're so certain iTunes contains privacy compromising features that they decided it wasn't worth the risk? ;)Technorati tags: Apple, iPod
XP Won't Run on Intel MacBook, iMac
With the announcement of the first Intel based Macs yesterday, many users have rejoiced in being able to dual-boot both Mac OS X and Windows. Unfortunately, this is not the case; due to Apple's use of the extensible firmware interface (EFI) rather than BIOS, current Windows releases will not run on the systems.
