    And here are my notes:

    I have been working on a project to develop an application called CastCount ( http://www.castcount.com ) and this has been launched today over on the MacAppADay site. So far it has gone very well, a few negative comments but the majority have been very supportive.

    In terms of my own blog it has been quite, but I have had some frustrations with Flickr ( http://myapplestuff.com/flickr-an-underhand-ploy/ ). I was really pleased to get a free upgrade to PRO but confused as I had no notification of why, who or for how long so I was a little upset to get a notification that the account would expire on the 12th January. AM not sure a month is long enough to determine if this is something I want, and feel they should have been upfront with their communication. All feels a little pressured and underhand, added to which they aren’t very good at replying to emails!

    With respect to Apple we are entering the “silly season” of speculation and wish lists for 2007 so I found this article that looked at some of the wider issues facing Apple to be really interesting ( http://blog.wired.com/cultofmac/2006/12/ten_questions_a.html)

    I don’t have a review for you this week. I have been trying to figure out my own “Top 10”. I will be writing about this over the next couple of days so I am not going to spill the beans here. If I was measuring purely on what I use more than anything else then it would be NetNewsWire ( http://myapplestuff.com/why-pay-for-rss/ )

    Finally, I would like to mention the Picture Competition that I am running along with The MyMacGames and Surfbits
