This week’s batch of games features the iOS version of Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy as well as the first chapter in the episodic Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect. And you’ll definitely keep warm with puzzlers like Destructamundo and Yet it Moves. Just don’t forget to shovel the walkway in between gaming sessions.

Any lingering post-holiday sluggishness in the release schedule is gone by now, as this week’s slate of new releases is a strong and diverse one.

My first typing experience was on grandma’s old manual Royal typewriter, a behemoth that eventually became a faithful companion into my late teens.

Once upon a time, Apple’s 5GB free iCloud storage was considered quite generous. Three years later, the same offer looks Scrooge-like in an age where multiple devices on the same account are now capable of holding 64GB or even 128GB of data.
