**** Playing Nice With GarageBand For iPad <http://www.macworld.com/article/161090/2011/08/gbcompanion.html#lsrc.rss_main>
James Galbraith, Macworld
Musical newbies arenât the only ones interested in using the $5 app, however. GarageBand for iPad appeals to seasoned musicians, too. And those with significant investments in recording equipment may be wondering which, if any, of their existing gear will work with the portable version of GarageBand. I decided to grab my trusty iPad, my iPad camera connection kit, and powered USB hub and plug in whatever I had around to see what would work.

Glenn Fleishman, Macworld
Computers connecting via AirDrop donât have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. They donât require an ad hoc network or software base station. AirDrop bypasses all that.

Danesh Daryanani, Today
Let us go ahead on Sunday to "cook a pot of curry" and invite our Singaporean and non-Singaporean friends and neighbours to embrace our curries - Indian, Chinese, Malay or Eurasian - and let us use curry for positive change.

Merely softening the edges of policies and not making fundamental change will not get us very far. Perhaps, the people will be slightly less unhappy in the short term but they will remain unhappy nonetheless.

Singapore's Land Transport
Without fanfare, SMRT launched the bus arrival times information for all SMRT bus services at all bus stops. With this, the missing piece of puzzle in getting SMRT's bus arrival times is finally in place.
Next step? An integrated bus arrival information portal showing both SBST and SMRT information. LTA has got to harmonise both set of real-time bus arrival information and present in one integrated system -- you won't get one if you leave it to the operators.

As a people, we should learn that it is ok not to sprint all the time, and that we can sometimes slow down for the stragglers to catch up - so that we can all move forward into the future as one people.

**** âNot Trueâ That NTUC Income Didnât Intend To Privatise â Tan Kin Lian <http://theonlinecitizen.com/2011/08/not-true-that-ntuc-income-didnt-intend-to-privatise-tan-kin-lian/>
Benjamin Cheah, The Online Citizen
Saying that the statement is ânot trueâ, Mr Tan pointed out that NTUC Incomeâs current Board of Directors had only been in their posts for only about the last five years, and might not have known about previous discussions about privatisation. He furthered added that the Boardâs statement was probably referring to NTUCâs activities within the tenure of the current Board, while Mr Tanâs original claim that NTUC Income was privatisation was to be seen in context of the last fifteen years.

Lydia Lim, Straits Times
On the Presidential Elections Committee's decision to issue four certificates of eligibility, Mr Lee said that means in the committee's view, four of those who applied, meet the basic threshold for the office. But it does not mean that all four are equally qualified to be President, he said.
The government will work with whomever voters choose, Mr Lee pledged, and he has every confidence they will make a good judgement.
