Judging from today's recap, there are at least a few thousand mobile gamers out there who are quite content to line the pockets of game publishers via in-app purchases. While we personally view this new business model as the work of Satan, it shows no sign of stopping in the future. What ever happened to the good old days where you could just buy a game and that was the end of it?
Barnes & Noble doesn't quite seem to know how to right its Nook ship -- after abandoning its own hardware, the company's CEO has now gone overboard, leaving analysts to speculate who might come calling to bail it out.
Veteran rockers Pink Floyd are leading the charge against Pandora Radio, which is under fire for the reportedly meager royalty payments paid to artists and songwriters. We have one such tale of woe in today's recap, along with more sad news from bookseller Barnes & Noble, who appears to be throwing the towel on hardware manufacturing for its NOOK tablets. Read on to find out more!
As if Apple's "mission statement" video that kicked off WWDC 2013 wasn't already a good indication, Cupertino is stepping up its efforts to show how its products affect users, rather than focusing on specific features as rivals such as Samsung continue to do. You can see what we mean in today's recap, which also details a few products disappearing off the radar. Find out why!

The release of the iPhone 5 has helped keep the iPad mini rumors at bay, but Barnes & Noble is stirring the pot again on Wednesday by introducing a pair of high-resolution tablets squarely aimed at Amazon and Apple.
Doesn't it feel a little bit like the calm before the storm? We pretty much know that OS X Mountain Lion will be arriving on our favorite Mac computer next week unless Apple pulls a rabbit out of its hat later this week, and the tech world is enjoying a somewhat quiet lull otherwise. But that doesn't mean we can't scrounge up some worthy contenders for today's recap, so read on for everything happening this Tuesday, July 17, 2012.
