Still, with 12 gun types and 144 stages for a buck, it’s a darn good deal, or you can download the free ad-supported version.

It’s already one of the worst-kept secrets in tech -- News Corp. titan Rupert Murdoch has an iPad-only newspaper coming called The Daily. A January 19 date had been set to launch the new offering, but it now appears that will be delayed a bit.
