Every game console needs a killer racing title, something that delivers envelope-pushing graphics and freewheeling fun. For the PlayStation, it’s Gran Turismo. For the Xbox, it’s Forza Motorsport. And for the iPhone? Sadly, it’s not GTS World Racing. Although the game offers pretty graphics, perfect controls, and some nice touches, it’s far too repetitive. Plus, it has some gameplay issues that, pardon the pun, drive you crazy.
Lets face it, you have way more than 16GB of music at home. You've set up a Smart playlist to shuffle your songs, but when you got a hankering to listen to Minor Threat and the closest thing you got on your iPhone at the moment is Avril Lavigne. Well, it's a pain.
After all the speculation that the iPhone 3G would be “the best phone EVER!”, it has been a little less then what we all expected. Complaints over dropped calls and slower then expected internet, have sparked waves of speculation of what could be the source of the problem.
iPhone developers wasted no time creating bootleg apps for the wonder gadget when it launched last year. Now will they storm the App Store or stay “underground” and keep offering nonsanctioned apps that defy Apple’s attempts to control the way the device is used?
The iPhone dock prides itself in its minimalism. The sleek white design works for a lot of people. For some though, you need a dock that shows just how much you appreciate the man responsible for the iPhone.
There comes a time when an iPhone just isn’t enough. Sure, it’s the best phone on the planet, but some users want to go beyond Apple’s arbitrary rules and restrictions. Maybe they want to run the phone on a network other than AT&T, or maybe they want to use apps that you just can’t find on the App Store. When that happens, it’s time to go underground.
If the Olympics has you dreaming of smashing records with split-second timing - only without all that unsightly sweating - those dreams can be achieved with your iPhone or iPod touch. Brain Challenge may look like it’s just a clone of Nintendo’s Brain Age or Big Brain Academy games (and, let’s face it, it is) but it’s still a good time in its own right.
