In honor of the 8th and final Harry Potter movie, this week we're taking the opportunity to check out a few science fiction outings offered in the App Store. From wizards to amorphous blobs, even a Slytherin would find love in their hearts for these games.
The iPhone and iPad have done incredible things for the comic book industry, and now it’s possible --and so, so easy -- to use your iOS device to get some of the very best comics available. With Comic-Con, the ultimate festival of geek starting, we thought we’d take a look at some of the awesome comic books available on the iOS platforms.
Anyone raised from the late seventies on has probably dreamed about having one of their ideas turned into a video game, but how often does it actually happen? For a nine-year-old boy living in Seattle, the dream became a reality with Allied Star Police, a new iOS game from PopCap’s 4th & Battery division.
There have been plenty of reports recently showing the iPad has a stranglehold on the tablet market, so it is not earth shattering that more business users are using iPads as well.
What is extra-surprising is that Android tablet activations in the business world have dropped during the second quarter of 2011, while iPad activations have grown.

You’ve probably heard by now that Apple Inc. had another boffo quarter, with plenty of facts and figures to prove it -- not to mention record revenue of $28.57 billion. But one of the most interesting numbers shows how the iPad has overtaken the Mac in less than a year and a half.
Anyone who's been to a Portland Timbers game knows that Timber Joey, the official mascot for PDX’s pro-soccer team, isn’t a cartoon character. He’s a burly, larger-than-life, flesh-and-blood man -- albeit one that happens to wear typified logger headwear and a wield a massive chain saw. Of course, the depiction of Timber Joey in a flash animated you-versus-the-hordes arcade game wouldn’t make sense as a real person, so here he is in fact a stylized character, and he’s pretty upset about the abundance of fish (these are the Seattle Flounders) trying to trample through his rose garden.
