German vandals deface new flagship Hamburg Apple Store with a Windows logo

A couple of cheeky German guys decided to have a bit of fun this weekend by defacing the under construction Apple Store in Hamburg with a Windows logo.

Now before we get too upset by this, when we say deface it, it was more a bit of fun with no permanent lasting damage. Posing as a couple of construction workers, they climbed a ladder and pieced together a poor attempt at a Windows Logo.

In fact if you wanted to be really mean, you could say that this is an excellent deterrent to any would-be thieves! Take a look at the video after the break!

  • Easy to Use - Screens is the easiest, most user friendly VNC client for iOS.
  • Secure - Screens can connect to your computer through a SSH Tunnel so your session is encrypted and safe.
  • Pull-to-Dock - Your Dock is hidden? No problem! Screens can make it appear with a simple flick!
  • Multi-Touch - Screens supports many multi-touch features your already use on your trackpad.
  • Screens Connect - Make your computer available from anywhere. Easy as flicking a switch! No messy router setup. (Requires OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard)

It's on introductory sale right now so if you act fast, you can save $10 off the regular price.

Screenshots after the break. If you want to run your desktop -- or server room -- from your lounge chair, and do it in pixel-perfect style, check out Screens. And after you do, come back and tell me what you think.

Apple releases Safari 5 extensions for Mac/Windows. Can we have it for iPhone and iPad as well?

Apple's lov today announced an update for Safari 5 that enables extensions (plugins), something Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome have had for a while now. We're happy for our big desktop brothers, of course. Really. Truly. But in our minds a lot of the stuff you'll read about after the break would be even better suited on mobile devices like iPhone and iPad. That's where convenient extensions like password managers would shine.

Maybe iOS 5?

Read on for the good bits from the presser.
