Out with the old, in with the new: Just as Apple posted their extensive iPad 2 information on the website after the announcement Wednesday, the price of the first-generation model got a steep discount, with each model slashed by $100 -- or more, if you don’t mind going refurbished.

An ominous new trailer has appeared for an unknown upcoming iPhone game from the developer RedLynx that teases that it will have 1000 days of gaming content. It's unknown exactly what is meant by this strange announcement, but the trailer seems to suggest that it's some kind of incredibly ambitious downloadable content plan.
