In a way, the iCade could best be described as a joke gone awesomely right. After all, it started as nothing more than an April Fool’s Day prank -- a fake product created by ThinkGeek, a company known for unbelievable (and most of the time, real) products.

Trekkies rejoice! Finally there's an app that will allow you to exercise your life long dream of shedding these weak 21st century operating systems, and work in something a bit more advanced.

More than a few people have gone so far as to call Real Racing 2 the perfect iOS racing game, and we're pretty much in agreement. It's awesome. And it's about to get a bit more awesomer and perfecter as an update has arrived for the title and it's HD iPad counterpart.
It's Wednesday again, and that means it's time to wait impatiently for midnight to roll around so games will arrive in the US App Store.
