The iPod touch used to lag behind the current iPhone in specs, and the fourth-generation iPod touch was the worst: introduced in 2010, it got a white version and a lower price in 2011, and it’s still for sale—but the totally redesigned fifth-gen iPod touch blows it out of the water. It’s got the same extra-tall 4-inch Retina display as the iPhone 5, the same Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, the same scratch-resistant sapphire cover on its iSight camera, and an equally gorgeous aluminum unibody, complete with shiny chamfer.

We've heard a lot about how the diminutive size of the iPad mini is a great thing. You can use it with one hand, it fits easily inside a bag, etc. But it also turns out the iPad mini is just about the perfect size for installing it in your car's dashboard.
In a world crawling with undead, it seems the opportunist is alive and well. A bespectacled Los Angeles film director wants to make zombie films, and he needs a murderous star. Enter your broad-shouldered, square-jawed avatar. Zombiewood is, through and through, a twin-stick shooter. One virtual analog stick dictates movement; the other controls which direction your hot lead flies. Using pistols, machine guns, flamethrowers, and rocket launchers, you’ll mow down hundreds of zombies as they vie for your noggin.
Atlas by Collins is a very attractive app. It doesn’t hope to compete with the amount of data you can unearth by searching Google, but you’ll find much more than just the essentials, presented in an easy-to-use, self-contained app. Offering access to seven different globes grouped into three collections, the app covers everything from standard atlases to people, energy consumption, and production, as well as our impact on the planet -- with more promised in the future.
