Crazy Taxi is meant to be played in short bursts — which makes sense given that it started out as a quarter-munching arcade game. The pick-up-and-play nature of Crazy Taxi makes it ideal for mobile devices, as the 2012 iOS version illustrates. But as fun as that game was, it was still just a port. Now Sega has a brand-new entry in the franchise that was made specifically for mobile devices — Crazy Taxi: City Rush.
After Apple's iPad Mini debut, I got to get hands-on with the newest Apple tablet -- or maybe I should say "hand-on" since this thing is so easy to hold in one hand. You'll want to spin it around on your finger like a Harlem Globetrotter. But you probably shouldn't -- even though it's only as heavy as a legal pad of paper, it's significantly more fragile.
Despite having an iPhone since the original model launched in 2007, curiosity sometimes drives us into the arms of competing products -- especially ones as well-hyped as Nokia’s new Lumia 900, which many predict could be the first real shot Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has for success.
Our friends at TechRadar got to go into the demo room and play with the new iPad. The new Retina Display makes even the Home screen look better than ever, and the new processor means that the device is fast and quick to react--everything a tablet should be. Though it's a bit heavier than its predecessors, the new iPad is definitely giving all other tablets a run for their money. Jump ahead to see the photos.
It’s getting increasingly hard for Apple to surprise us in the years following the original iPhone in 2007 (OS X Mountain Lion was one notable recent exception.) Case in point: Engadget just got touchy-feely with an iPad 3 prototype and spoiled all the non-fun for the rest of us come Wednesday.
Apple again made headlines this week with its effort to revolutionize the educational market through the iPad, with an updated version of iBooks and a new app for iTunes U. Combined with the Mac-based iBooks Author, the company is poised to help put iPads in thousands more schools across the United States and indeed, even more worldwide.
We may be an Apple-centric publication, but that doesn’t mean every once in a while, something comes along from a competitor which makes us stand up, take notice and even drool a little. We love our iPhone 4S -- seriously, you’d have to pry it from our cold, dead hand -- but the siren song of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus proves too much to ignore, so we had to venture out and procure one for ourselves. How do the two best smartphones on planet Earth fare against each other?
Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire arrived in the hands of early adopters this week, and we were among those who preordered following the announcement seven weeks ago. Now that it’s safely arrived in our hands, we’ve started poking, prodding and yes, tapping the Kindle Fire to give MacLife.com readers a quick look at this new budget-conscious, seven-inch Android-based tablet.
With the iPhone 4S selling faster than hotcakes at a Miami bakery, it's obviously appealing to people on a massive scale. We decided it was high-time to get our hands on the thing and put it through its paces. But which new feature was our absolute favorite? Watch the video to find out (SPOILER: It was Siri).
