With all of the new features now available in Safari for iOS 5, there's almost no other reason to call upon third-party mobile browsers. Here's a look at four new features Apple bundled into Safari in iOS 5, and how you can take full advantage of them.
Those of us who ponied up for a new iPhone 4S in the last week -- which according to Apple, is more than four million! -- finally got to spend our first weekend with it and now get back to our normal routine as the start of the work week is here again. But so far, the week is looking up and there’s plenty to report for this fine Monday, October 17, 2011.

It's my last Friday before maternity leave. So with visions of onesies dancing in my head, I present to you these awesome apps that are at newly lowered prices -- many in honor of the just-born iPhone 4S. After all, a new phone deserves some shiny new apps, does it not? Now you'll spend less money in the App Store, and have more money for diapers. (Yes, I realize I'm the one buying the diapers, not you. But bear with me here. I'm in no condition to argue...)
It's here! It's launch day and the gang over at Cupertino has been busy little beavers this week, dropping software update goodness into our laps and relieving the servers when they get hammered, as they always do.

The last few weeks in the App Store has been very good to gamers.

This week I'll take a look at two of the most inventive, addicting games to ever release on iOS.
The Apple Patent Wars seem to be fizzling a bit, especially now that the Australian Federal Court that has sided with Cupertino. This will prove a devastating blow to Samsung, as the ruling will most likely eliminate the Galaxy 10.1 from Australia forever.
And not only are the Galaxy's dreams dashed Down Under, but the ruling will also bolster Apple's position in the remaining lawsuits against Samsung around the world. This is a huge development that puts the leverage and momentum squarely in Cupertino's court.
If you’re feeling a little groggy and disoriented today, we don’t blame you -- Apple unleashed a shotgun blast’s worth of updates on Wednesday and many of us had to stay up until the wee hours to finally install them all.
