Cupertino has just released its financial results for the first quarter of 2013. Despite some recent turmoil over reduced parts manufacturing and lowered stock expectations, Apple has still started the year with a record showing.
Sometimes a silicone sleeve is all you need, and Moshi's Origo is one of our favorites. It adds very little bulk, but the honeycomb pattern on the inside is raised ever so slightly to give you a bit of extra shock protection, and the pattern is visible from the outside too.
Brash as its title might seem, Awesomenauts pretty well lives up to its confident billing by delivering a stellar side-scrolling take on the surging Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre, in which small teams work together to storm the enemy base while protecting their own. While the core mechanics should be familiar to anyone who's played one of the genre's more traditional top-down 3D entries (like League of Legends), the fun tweaks and personality are what make its cartoonish combat so engaging.

The Compact Disc recently celebrated its 30th birthday, but for most people, digital files stored on a Mac (or streaming from a cloud) have completely replaced plastic discs shoved inside a stereo. But despite recent improvements to the speakers inside many late-model Macs, they're still lacking when it comes to listening to your favorite tunes.

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.
Apple’s iPod nano never stays the same for long, but this seventh iteration feels more like a mishmash of past features than a clear step forward. It keeps the touchscreen of the sixth-gen model, but loses the clip, so it doesn’t work with those third-party watch bands that were all the rage. You can watch videos on the 2.5-inch, 240x432 screen, but it lacks the fifth-gen nano’s 720p camera.
