I had that lyric from Vanilla Ice's "Ninja Rap" stuck in my head constantly while playing Ponos' new iOS game, Mr.Ninja (no space, lest you have a hard time finding it in the App Store). Its one button gameplay about a ninja slicing and dicing his way through the cosmos is easy to grasp, but its simplicity is its greatest virtue.

We’re all Apple fans. But why? Deep thoughts like that -- and 50th issues -- call for a countdown! But don’t worry, we balanced our enthusiasm with a hard-hitting look at the dark side of Apple...
Turning 50 is certainly a milestone, and we’ve been saving something special for our 50th issue: a countdown that examines all the reasons that Apple fans are Apple fans. After all, as the Microsoft Stores so perfectly prove, no other tech titan can inspire the same level of devotion.
But there’s no single reason we love our Macs, iPhones, iPads, and iPods -- in fact, we thought of a lot more than 50.
