Ohhh, I remember these. The joy of rewinding and fast forwarding.

Looking to replace your MacBook Pro HD with a new SSD? These are the instructions if you have a pre Unibody Intel MacBook Pro; the opening up instructions do vary considerably from the Unibody version.
Took me 5–10 mins to fully open it up, including removing the existing hard drive and putting in my new OCZ Vertex 2 SSD. The only tool you might not have is the T6 Torx Screwdriver and optional Spudger.
Now have a SSD in both my MacBook Pro and MacPro, it’s well worth the upgrade.

My friends over StudioDalton have released another fine app: it’s called Clocky and it’s specifically for the Apple Mac.
Clocky will prove itself useful if you have a practical need to keep on top of global times, or if you are just particularly interested. As a fair number of my clients are quite different time-zones, being able to quickly tell at a glance when they are sleeping or due to rise will be quite useful.
Clocky is very discreet and is conveniently accessible via the Apple menu.Read More
Would it be safe to say, that this would be the sort of thing you wished you had thought of?
Also, wonder if Apple kicks it’s collective ass when they see other companies coming up with such neat designs. This would look more than at home as an Apple accessory.Read More
Just downloaded a neat plug-in for Mail after reading about it in Macworld. Mail Perspectives is awesome, just what I need, compact windows for my Inbox etc. Now you can just keep what you need in view, opposed to the whole Mail app window.
You get a 30 day demo; worth trying out if you like to keep your desktop neat and functional.Read More
When the iPod first came out–I managed to get a pretty solid case for that–as I went travelling around Egypt for 3 months. Fully enclosed, with rubber seals, it certainly makes you less anxious about damaging your ‘gear’.
This LifeProof case looks pretty good, and doesn’t seem to add too much overall bulk. Ideal for taking to the beach, on your mountain bike, or wherever harm may be lurking for your iPhone.Read More
What a scoop if this is legit, and no reason to think it isn’t.
Via Forkbomber : Editor’s Note: A little birdie from Cupertino sent this to me. They stressed that this is the real deal.

The real question would have made the title too long, so…
How do I deauthorize computers from my iTunes account when I no longer have the computer?
Found this on Quora, as I realised some of my earlier Mac’s had not been deauthorised prior to getting rid of etc. The upshot is, once you reach your 5 limit, you can reset to 0 and start over.

If you are thinking about lumping in an SSD for your Apple MacPro, then you will need something like this 2.5” SATA and SSD hard drive into a 3.5” SATA drive converter/cradle. ( MB882SP-1S-1B )
There are cheaper ones to choose from, but this is solid and took about 3 minutes to install. All it takes is a screwdriver.
I got mine from Expansys for £15.99 and turned up next day by Royal Mail, I just opted for free P&P.
It took me a while to locate what it was I needed, being an SSD newb, so I hope this information may be helpful if you are looking to put a SSD in your MacPro.Read More
Michael Gartenberg for Macworld points out some excellent points about how Apple deals with software licensing and it’s views towards licensing and piracy in general. This really highlights that Apple can look past what many other companies, usually for naive reasons, dwell on.
Apple’s approach is simple. It’s an honor thing. The company believes that, given the choice, people will do the right thing. It also understands that anti-piracy techniques don’t stop pirates, but they do get in the way of honest users.
