Okay, okay, have we all settled down from iPad 2 mania? Sure, it finally hit the UK this week and the Brits went gaga for it, but meanwhile other stuff's popping. Like what? you ask. I guess you came to the right place to find out all the stuff you missed. You know, just in case.
Tabletop RPGs –– the kind you play with rulebooks and funny dice, like Dungeons & Dragons –– may be products of your imagination, but using maps can avoid arguments about how far the elf wizard is from an onrushing orc.

Today's the release of the iPad 2 in Europe, and our friends across the pond at Tap! magazine are currently waiting in line at the Bath, England Apple Store for their very own second-generation tablet. They've graciously provided us with a couple of videos from the line to give us "Yankee blokes" (see what I did there?) a look at what iPad 2 launches are like overseas (hint: they're totally the same as ours).
This week, I've decided to go theme-less with Free App Friday. That's right folks, I'm just slapping together some apps that are free and you have no idea what any of them have to do with each other.

Google has a zillion other services. While you’re pretty familiar with things like Search and Maps, even these Google stalwarts have some secret powers for you to master. And if you haven’t seen Google’s little-known Panoramio, we’ll show you how to view and contribute to its amazing collection of geotagged photography.
I have more than 25 business calendars in iCal, divided into five calendar groups. I use MobileMe to keep them in sync between all of my Macs, but I just upgraded to the new MobileMe Calendar and now all of my calendar groups are gone!
Hidden behind one of the corniest names we've ever seen (possibly intentionally so) Sword and Sorcery may just be one of the most unique games of the year. All it takes is one good look at the game and it's powerful tone to understand that this is about as far from Cut the Rope as you can possibly get.
