Well, it's no "iCar" and it's not exactly"iOS in the Car," but Apple has at last started working its way into select vehicles. As MacRumors notes, the latest foray comes in the form of new iOS "Eyes Free" technology built into the 2013-2014 Honda Accord and the 2013 Acura RDX and ILX models. In essence, owners of these vehicles will be able to use Siri to control certain functions.
The releases of Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City a while back were impressive enough at the time, but today Rockstar announced that the beloved Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would be making its way to iOS as early as next month. And it gets even better. According to the press release, it'll even support the Made for iPhone game controllers that just hit shelves in the previous weeks.
Want to get a head start on Black Friday deals? Consider this, the original Infinity Blade, which quickly became one of the most impressive and successful action games for iOS, is now available for free.

Back in July I wrote about a controversial piece of tech used by Nordstrom that tracked the movements of customers throughout its stores to help management make decisions about product placements. At the time, it seemed like something of a scandal. But now, as AppleInsider reports, Apple has launched its own pilot version of the program called 'iBeacon," which follows you throughout a store and shows you deals around you.
It seems like every update to the Apple Store app has been met with the same disappointment: "No native iPad support." While that's still true, Apple has at least finally delivered shoppers a separate app, just for the iPad.
As Agent 86 (aka Maxwell Smart) himself might have put it, "We missed it by that much!" Better late than never, Logitech has finally made official its long-rumored iOS 7 game controller, only a day after the competition got a jump on them.
In case you didn't notice, Apple's Find My Friends app was updated Tuesday, effectively making the company's transition to iOS 7 styling complete — well, almost. A few of Cupertino's lesser-used apps, such as Keynote Remote, Logic Remote, iTunes Connect Mobile and iAd Gallery are still rocking iOS 6-style icons.
