Pipe Mania doesn’t refer to a new kind of drug epidemic or burgeoning
fad that has hipsters accessorizing with corncob pipes. It’s a classic
puzzle game, first developed 20 years ago for the Amiga, and recently
released for the Mac and iPhone by Virtual Programming. But even now,
it’s got druglike addictiveness plus retro cool.

a recent RBC IQ/ChangeWave survey, a cool quarter of people who bought
a computer in the last 90 days bought a Mac laptop. The back-to-school
push, along with some Mac price cuts, and a new operating system, as
well as the iPhone 3G S, are expected to be behind Mac's best showing
