What do you call it when a company releases nearly identical levels of a game with a holiday theme? If you answered, “Obviously a free update, LOL, that’s what Doodle Jump does!” than you’d be sadly mistaken. Unless, of course, you’re actually talking about Doodle Jump.
Forget Farmville--in Restaurant Story, you get to see what happens to all those cutesy cows at the end of their journeys. Remember Betty, the little calf you named and watched wean in your little farm?
It's Monday--the Monday after a week upon which an Apple Event fell. As much as we'd like to wow you with word of something awesome dropping, unfortunately, well... It's Monday. Instead, may we tempt you with the news that Adobe has updated their flexible Adobe Air cross-platform runtime to version 2.5?
Wait! Where are you going? Seriously, this is kind of cool!
It was too awesome a rumor to have been true. After a week of whispered rumors, punditry and the intermittent sound of sighs and facepalms ringing out across the land, it appears that the dream of a Facebook buyout by Apple has been dashed upon the rocks of reality. According to Mashable, who broke the story last week, further information that debunked speculation that Mark Zuckerberg was ready to hand over Facebook's reigns for a whole lotta cold hard cash is nothing but hogwash.
Apple giveth, but sometimes Apple taketh away -- case in point, the iPad’s orientation lock switch, which is being converted back to the mute switch it was originally intended to be with the forthcoming iOS 4.2. But what if we like our current hardware-based orientation lock switch? Tough bananas, says Steve Jobs.
Whew! Another week another gangbuster series of announcements and news for Apple. It's an amazing run and it doesn't look like it's planning to stop any time soon. So let's all stand back and hear Cupertino roar.
The time is now to plot out your plans for world domination. But before you go forth with lording over the 6 billion people that inhabit this earth, you'll need some practice so that you can come to expect the unexpected. We've rounded up a few apps that can help you take control of your own life--and the lives of others. Sure, you can't tap and touch the world into submission like you could in a game of Pocket God, but you can at least prepare by learning leadership and organization skills. Right?
Oh, Hulu. Our love for you is a fickle thing. When you were a free web-based streaming service that offered up a deep and enjoyable catalog of TV and movie content, our hearts went pitter-pat at the very mention of your name. Later, when you scaled back the variety of content you offered, the relationship cooled. Then you told us that if we wanted to get access to your "premium content," we'd have to pay for it. That was dirty. We were so hurt that we ran to the arms of our reliable old flame Netflix, who for one low, reasonable price, has never denied us anything. What's that you say? You miss us so much that you're thinking about loweing your price to a meager $4.95 a month?
