Browsing the Mac OS X App Store today, I noticed that only 58% of the first 12 Top Free Apps are actually free!
Is this a miss-classification of applications? A data entry error? Or the Australia tax I get for using the Australian Apple store?
The full Top Free list doesn’t have the same problem, past the first 12. I think someone was a little hurried just before Christmas, and ticked the wrong boxes.
Anyone got a better explanation?

I took this shot of a man coming down the escalator of a seemingly empty station. It reminds me of thriller movies when, that extra the camera has been following walks into an empty public space, only to be attacked by the film’s malevolent entity.
Of course, if the extra is really the protagonist, they pull out a sword/gun, confronting the entity or making a hasty retreat. Unfortunately, this guy is not wearing a long coat, so it looks like curtains…
It’s funny, but a little worrying, when supermarkets can’t do maths correctly on their signs.
I suppose this is erring on the side of caution, saying you get 20% but giving you 33%, rather than saying you get 33% any only giving you 20%. Which makes sense from a legal perspective, giving you a bigger discount than is advertised.
Although, if a supermarket can’t get the numbers on their specials labels correct, where else are the numbers wrong?
The new fashion trend gracing windows of the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney is black & yellow. Very reminiscent of The Bride from Kill Bill. Upstairs are the dresses and tops. And downstairs, the matching shoes.
Are these clothes you would kill for? Or, do they leave you feeling jilted?
The ATO has finally released their Mac eTax software, but the computer requirement seem a little strange.
I understand having one of the last 3 Mac OS X versions (10.6, 10.7 10.8) as a requirement. But the hardware requirements seem a little strange. Have you tried running any of these 3 OSs on a Pentium?

When warning signs go up to for floor cleaning, often they are just to make you aware of the dangers of slippery floors. Where as, this one for Portal floor cleaning warns not to step too close, or you might get sucked in.
