Wake up, sleepy heads. Did your alarm clocks go off at the right time? Did it make a difference if you updated to iOS 4.3? Did those of you with older iOS versions have any trouble with your clocks? Remember 6 months ago when all that was a very big deal? Here's to hoping Apple didn't miss anything, and just in case you did, we've got it all right here.
It's here, it's here! iOS 4.3 dropped and it's ready for your iOS devices. But like most Apple updates, the update is full of features that Apple either doesn't advertise, or can be difficult to find if you don't spend the day rummaging through an entire iOS device's menu system.
No one needs a stylus, at least according to Apple. But any artist using an iPad as a sketching tool will tell you that a stylus will take your art from finger painting to, well, actual painting. After all, Michelangelo didn’t do many hand turkeys, and he certainly didn’t draw with his finger.

While most eyes are on the iPad 2 at the moment one analyst at least reckons that Android tablets are set to take the market lead.
And in the OMG PANIC department, news came out that over-reliance on sat navs could cause death. Hopefully some of us will be left alive, though, as the UK government is pressing on with a £50m broadband plan to bring high-speed internet to rural areas.

Sounds like a typical role-player, but Battleheart stands out thanks to its friendly cartoonish artwork, and the simple but very well done animation.
The late, great Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” With Filterstorm 2, universal for iPad and iPhone, you can “make” just about any photo your imagination conceives.
