Mac OS X Lion USB drive finally goes on sale, but it'll cost you...
Apple has finally made the physical iteration of the new Mac OS X Lion operating system available to buy. However, while the downloadable version was a recession-smashing £20.99, the USB drive will cost over double that at £55. That's a blow to those poor folks who don't have fast enough internet speed to download the 3.49GB before the start of the next decade.

Nokia: 'See, we were right to ignore Android'
Ailing Finnish giant Nokia is feeling all smug today following Google's deal to buy Motorola. The company reckons the £12.5bn deal justifies its decision to place its stock in developing hardware for the Windows Phone operating system and resist advances from Android. Nokia thinks that the current Android partners may suffer if Google places more stock in development for Moto.

Apple spaceship will be 'bigger' than the Empire State building... sort of
The plans for Apple's new spaceship HQ have revealed that the campus will be larger than New York's Empire State Building, laid flat. Mac Observer says that the diameter of the circular structure would be 1,615 feet, whereas the fabled Big Apple landmark would stretch out to 'just' 1,250 feet. It's also bigger than the Pentagon and a World War II battleship. In short, it's gonna be pretty big.
