There's an app in the Google Play store which calls itself OCAU Forums or similar - note this is NOT in any way associated with us. It might not do anything bad, but who knows. We support Tapatalk for mobile browsing, but any app with the actual OCAU Forums name is not anything to do with us at the moment. Discussion here.

Sabz spotted this Windows 8 video, showing the new interface in detail. Almost not terrible... but still pretty terrible.Windows 8 is a mess on the desktop. What were they thinking? This might be OK for a tablet, but on a desktop... it's a mess.

The takeover of Internode has boosted iiNet's profit last year. Chief executive Michael Malone said the internet service provider's (ISP) "best ever financial result" was due to its acquisitions of competing broadband providers TransACT and Internode, both bought in late 2011.

A hoax about proprietary screws from Apple has had people up in arms, thanks mpot. Stockholm production company Day4 fooled portions of the tech world last week into believing that Apple was working on an odd-shaped screw - an effort to show how quickly people are to believe anything they find online. I don't remember hearing about it - so maybe this story is the hoax? :)

Bill Gates has his eyes on your toilet - or at least, those in the developing world. A charitable foundation founded by Gates and his wife kicked off a "Reinvent the Toilet Fair" in Seattle and awarded prizes for promising innovations. "Toilets are extremely important for public health and, when you think of it, even human dignity," Gates said.

There's not very much information about it, but apparently an Australian has made a converter for the iPhone connector. This little contraption is called the MAGdapter. Clumsy name aside, basically itís a case that wraps around your iPhone (or any other device for that matter) and gives it a new magnetic docking connector down the bottom. The magnetic plate is removable and can be swapped out for either a 30-pin connector, a microUSB connector or even the theoretical connector for the new range of iDevices. You know, if that ends up happening.
