This week's podcast focuses on HP's big move to exist the desktop and mobile computing spaces, while Google snatches up Motorola Mobility for a cool $12.5 billion. Was it worth the price? Intel creates a $300 million fund in an effort to offset their own Ultrabook reference platform costs. Will this fund deliver the ability for PC manufacturers to compete with the MacBook Air? And of course, and our ever-present Werner Reschke (Guy #3) opening with This Day In History: Episode 57Read More >
This week's app is a folder synchronization tool called arRsync. This is a great tool that can backup or synchronize folders and files. Any folder that the finder sees, whether local or network based, can be synchronized.
arRsync does a nice job of backing up folders from one's local hard drive to an external or networked hard drive. The best part about this tool is that it is free.Read More >

But where there is smoke there is often fire, and while fall makes little sense, our information points to a January Special Event from Apple.Read More >
The new MacBook Airs are fast and light, but they currently come with a few software bugs. We have already talked about one of them here at T-GAAP, but there are more.

A recent video posted by 9to5mac.com reveals Apple's Grand Central store in mid-construction mode. The footage is a wee bit shaky, so we question whether the person shooting the video uses a Mac and iMovie (or FCP for that matter), but he appears to have held the camera steady enough to incriminate himself during the filming of the facility. At 2:11 into the video a mirror is caught on the tape, revealing the man holding the camera. From the looks of it, he's a security guard of some sort.Read More >
