Facebook reportedly ready to launch their own mobile ad network this month. Anyone excited?
Facebook, the world's most popular social network, is reportedly looking to get into the lucrative mobile ad game, perhaps as early as their F8 developers conference set to kick off in San Francisco on April 30, 2014. Facebook has been serving their own ads for a long time now, but this would be a way for developers to integrate Facebook ads into their own apps and services, and it would bring Facebook into direct competition with Google's AdMob, Apple's iAd, among others.

Have an original Apple TV that's suddenly unable to connect to the iTunes Store? You're not alone. It looks like many, many people in many, many parts of the world are suffering from exactly the same outage. There's no word yet on what caused it, though there is speculation that it might be related to a recent security update on Apple's servers, perhaps to deal with the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability.

What's on Richard's Mac dock right now!
Unlike my iPhone and iPad which are used a lot for leisure purposes besides work, my Mac is predominantly work focused. It's where I spend most of my working days and so many of the apps that reside on my dock are those which I use the most.
I'm not one for overloading my Mac dock, so the apps that are on there are genuinely the ones I need the most throughout the day. So, following on from other members of the iMore team, here's what's on my Mac dock and why.

What would the Mac look like with Helvetica Neue as the new OS X system font?
OS X 10.10, code-named Syrah, us currently sprinting its way towards developer beta for WWDC 2014, which kicks off June 2. Syrah is rumored to be getting a Jony Ive-led interface refresh this year, like iOS 7 got last year. That makes a lot of sense, since part of the opportunity cost of iOS 7 getting all that attention was that there wasn't much left for OS X Mavericks. It shipped with a few rough edges, like stitched leather, shaved off but others, like green felt, remaining. 2014 should see a reversal of those fortunes, with iOS 8 getting refined but Syrah getting a more significant visual upgrade. But how far will it go?

iMore show 398: Naked buttons
Apologies for the delay on this episode folks. As you'll hear during the show, I dropped my Retina MacBook Pro and it's still in with Apple for repairs. Sadly, the feed generation software we use doesn't sync, and it's really painful setting it up on another machine (yeah, I have backups, but I don't have the machine back to restore those backups onto yet. Ugh.) I did manage to manually hack together the RSS for the audio, so YouTube and MP3 are currently available, and I'll work on MP4 next. Hopefully I'll get my rMBP back soon and next week will be nice and normal... Now, on with the show!
Rene and Peter talk about dropping MacBooks, updating the OS X 10.10 Syrah interface, what they'd like to see in a new Mac Mini, iOS 8 getting Shazam-powers, 3D on phones, Passbook, and more!
