Encore of the Night takes the storyline of PlayStation classic Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, omits the side-scrolling action, and replaces it with puzzle gameplay. The journey through Dracula’s castle will have you fighting monsters by matching colored blocks to connect three. Making connections will attack your opponent, but you’ll have to watch out for counterattacks like “stone” blocks that can only be disengaged if a match is made around them. It’s more puzzler than platformer, but it’s a great new take on a classic game.
Being able to take photos with your iPhone on the go is great. Getting them off of your iPhone? Not so much. For many of us, our busy lives preclude the ability to sync our iOS devices on a regular basis, leaving all of the images we take on the go unprotected by the benefit of a backup. As such, everyone using an iPhone is always at risk of losing their precious photographic memories. Unacceptable! Today, we'll show you how you can easily back every photo you take with your iPhone, thanks to an ingenious iOS application and our friends at Dropbox.

Yawn, ho hum, another quiet week in the Mac world, as virtually nothing of interest to anyone happened, no big announcements were made, and we spent a week in a deep, deep coma. Wait, what? Something happened? Verizon got the iPhone? (Checking calendar) It's not April Fool's Day? Whew, lucky we've got tons of people on this beat or else this little news exclusive might have slipped right under our radar.
If your Apple mobile device is rocking iOS 4.2 and you still haven't had a chance to show everyone how cool Airplay is, it's time to step up your game. Why? Apple has released a beta version of iOS 4.3 to developers, meaning that your current load of iOS hotness will soon become a steaming pile of obsolete news.
After years of whispering, back room deals and the pleading of countless Apple aficionados who refused to be yoked by an AT&T contract, Apple is rolling the iPhone out to a second American provider. As has been speculated for months, the Verizon iPhone is CDMA network compatible, as opposed to the GSM goodness that much of the rest of the world enjoys. Coming from Canada, a country that saw the iPhone finally make it on to all three of our major national telecoms in late last winter, I understand why everyone down south is so excited, as it wasn’t so long ago that we were all wigging out up here about being about to get our meathooks on an iPhone too.
With Verizon FINALLY getting themselves some Apple-branded smartphone goodness, the world can finally focus on other, equally important rumors. Let's start with this one: Microsoft is hard at work developing their own in house answer to Apple's FaceTime.
Everyone knows about what a great place the Macworld Expo is for discovering great new Apple-centric products. Those who have attended the Expo can also attest to how much cash you can spend over the course of a visit to the Expo's many vendors and companies. If you're not careful, you could go in a rich man, and by the end of the day end up a gadget-laden pauper. Fortunately, starting year, visitors to the event will also be able by trading in their old iPhones to e-Cycle in exchange for some brand new greenbacks, making the purchase of new toys a little less painful.
Canabalt has been an addicting Flash browser-based game for some time, but the iPhone and iPad version of the game changed where we could play this game.
