The iPod will be 10 years old this fall, and as more and more users opt for the iPhone or even the iPad as their media player of choice, Apple may be asking themselves: Is it time to drive a stake in the heart of the iPod yet? Here are a handful of reasons why they might, along with just as many for why they won’t.
Long languished in comparative obscurity over its more commercially attractive namesake, War of the Lions isn’t concerned with JRPG tropes -- instead it’s a labyrinthine design of political drama, familial politics, and intrigue that just happens to have a touch of Square’s marquee role-playing series embedded within.
Apple's Photos app is functional enough, but lacking in features. Photo Gallery+ promises to give you greater control over how you manage and share your precious photographs and home movies -- although it comes with its own set of limitations.
Rumors about anything to do with iOS are everywhere and unending. But don't worry -- we got this.
Here is the latest horde of rumors, covering all things iOS. Don't be scared, we'll go through them one at a time. Follow along, and when the next generation of these devices does actually come out from Cupertino, you can smugly say something like, "Meh, I heard about that already."
If you’re the sort of person who prefers wild speculation instead of cold, hard facts, keep reading. Everyone else, there’s nothing to see here! The iOS 5 and iCloud rumors get cranked up into overdrive with a couple of leaked screenshots from Apple retail claiming their release could be “just around the corner.”
The end of August tends to be a slow time on the news desk, as last minute vacations are crammed in, as sleepy vacationers slowly get back in the groove of things, and as parents start bundling their kids off to school once more. Who has time for the news under those circumstances? Well, here's the stories that were heating up our thermometers this week, burning up the wires.
On Labor Day weekend, it's time for the lucky among us to...not work. For many of us this means shutting the lids on our MacBooks and sleeping our iMacs, but in case you kick back at your Mac, we found some sales on Mac games and fun-time apps that you might want to check out...
...along with our usual roundup of reduced-price iPhone and iPad apps, too. Who loves ya, baby? (Hint: We do.)
If Rampage and Metal Slug produced an unholy offspring, it might resemble something like Destructopus: Total Rampage. The game’s presentation is very telling of its personality: a double-bass-fueled metal song plays over the intro while a cartoonish silhouette wreaks havoc on the ruins of a city in the background, with an animation style that’s close to squigglevision.
Nik Software offers some truly remarkable photo post-processing software for the Mac, but it's not cheap, ranging in price from $100 to $200. So I'll admit, when I first downloaded Snapseed -- Nik's $4.99 universal iOS app -- I wasn't expecting a lot. I just didn't figure Nik would cram that much into such an inexpensive package. I was very wrong.
