At first I was going to make a screencast of my time with Touchgrind for Mac. The plan was to impress you all with my sick laser flips and bluntside nosegrinds.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple today that revealed plans for a next generation Hybrid Drive utilizing both a hard-disk drive (HDD) and a flash drive.
Intel will be releasing a hybrid drive system in 2012, called Smart Response; but Apple’s application indicates they have plans to make their own.

You, Sir Fortix, the lone knight of the kingdom, are called upon to save the land of Artalom from the clutches of the evil mage Xitrof -- alone. Without any help whatsoever. That’s the gist of Fortix 2, an unexpectedly nifty puzzle title -- think of it as a “reverse tower defense” game. You have to control all the units on the map (gates, keys, towers, power-ups, catapults, and so on) by boxing off terrain, which captures anything within it. What’s more, you have to box off the units without disrupting the lines you’re creating -- any interruptions will immediately kill your character.
