It would be easy for the Fruit Ninja brand to sell out to any license involving a blade, so it's hard not to be skeptical its recent edition, tangentially related to the Shrek spinoff film, Puss in Boots. While this tie-in is mostly a reduced version of its predecessor in new clothes, it contains one new addition allowing it to rise above the soulless cash-in.
Since the iPad debuted a couple of years ago, people have been trying to turn it into a low-cost, lightweight replacement laptop. Adding a Bluetooth keyboard is a good start, of course, but then you’re stuck lugging around two separate items. That’s hardly an argument for being able to simplify your life with an iPad. Or is it? Logitech’s Fold-Up Keyboard turns your iPad into a Transformer, letting you use it tablet-style, or with a full-size keyboard when you need a productivity boost.
We've had a few themed price drops lately, but this week there doesn't appear to be any overwhelming consistency, so we decided to bring you the best random price drops. It's a little of this and a little of that. A little something to share and to make your season bright.
Hooray, another Friday is here! It seems like they come faster and faster this time of year, which is a good thing for those of us who need to get out and do some Christmas (or other holiday) shopping, buy and trim the tree and start getting the apartment or house in order so those miscreant relatives have somewhere to stay. If the mere thought of all that has you exhausted, take a break for a few moments and catch up on all the tech news for Friday, December 2, 2011.
The holidays are here and you know what that means: going crazy trying to remember everyone on your Christmas card list. While Apple has made it easy for iOS users to turn their personal photos into holiday cards with the Cards app, it's still got a slim collection of templates that needs a little more polishing. Here are three free apps that basically offer the same services as the Cards app, though bear in mind that these apps do eventually charge you to send off physical greeting cards to your loved ones.
It’s a good week for iOS gaming software. Not only do we have the resurrected Xbox kinda-classic The Bard’s Tale to look forward to, but we also have word that the developer of Scribblenauts is working on a new game. But the really big news is that Infinity Blade 2 launched today. So let’s get to the updates so that we can all go slay the God King.
As important as it is to back up your data, software is only half the story when it comes to digital disasters. Hardware can go bad, or even get stolen, and there’s no way to keep a backup of a shiny new MacBook Pro. Or is there?
When an early version of Minecraft was released back in 2009, it became an instant underground hit that garnered a devoted cult following, thanks to its charmingly simple visuals and easily accessible gameplay. Unfortunately for iOS gamers, Minecraft – Pocket Edition, doesn’t offer anything close to the same experience as it’s computer-bound cousin.
Like it or not, December is here, and in a few short weeks we’ll be saying hello to 2012 and another new year of Apple rumors and product announcements. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet -- there’s still plenty going on in the final days of 2011, including the discovery of Carrier IQ in iOS, a MacPaw Mac App Store bundle that expires at midnight and a new report claiming iPhone 4S users are even happier than iPhone 4 owners. All of this and much more for December 1, 2011.
Holy moley, can November really be over already? Tomorrow, December will be upon us and the deafening rumble of Santa’s sleigh won’t be far behind. Most of us are already getting in the holiday spirit, which gives us little time to catch up on what’s happening in the tech world.
