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.

Let's hope the censors don't get a hold of Reckless Getaway. Where Grand Theft Auto caught a lot of flack for its wanton vehicular violence, you still had the option to play as a conscientious gangster with a heart of gold if you desired. This is not the case with Reckless Getaway, a top-down driving game where you're rewarded for murdering innocent civilians. Despite the dark subject matter it's portrayed as brightly colored, cartoon carnage in this cathartic and addictive on-the-road rampage.

What’s driving the iPad’s explosive growth? The “cool factor” is certainly part of it, but the iPad’s utility is the foundation of its success. It’s terrific as a second computing device (the first being a Mac or PC), and for many of us, it’s taking the spotlight as our primary platform for work, email, browsing, and beyond.

We’re talking photographing checks to deposit them, piping video calls to your TV, and loads more. But how?
If there's one confession you have to make to yourself, it's this: one of the primary reasons you bought your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad was to play extreme sports games on it. With that in mind comes DMBX - Mountain Biking, the latest in a series of extreme sports games from Randerline.
If you’re a die-hard fan of the video game Frogger, you’ve probably realized by now that 2011 marks the a milestone for the hopping little frog, who turns 30 this year.

As rumors swirl that Netflix is planning to go beyond North America, Hulu beats them to the punch by launching in Japan, although the service is following the Netflix playbook on at least one front, with higher prices. Meanwhile, a new update to the existing iOS app allows HDMI output on the iPad 2 -- as long as you’re down with standard definition, that is.
