We are increasingly encouraged by social networks to flag things we find online that we like. The Facebook "Like" button is now almost ubiquitous, popping up on myriad websites, but you’ll also find similar functionality in Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and many other networks.
Nokia’s Windows Phone devices may have their own exclusive app dedicated to The Dark Knight Rises, but those users are likely to be a little jealous when they find out the mobile game is coming to iOS and Android this summer.
Actor John Malkovich may not be the next actor you’d expect to see in a pair of Apple commercials following in the footsteps of Samuel L. Jackson and Zooey Deschanel, but that’s exactly who you’ll find discussing “Life” and “Joke” with Siri next.
We’re big fans of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 here at MacLife.com, but sadly the folks in Redmond don’t seem too eager about moving the platform to the tablet. But that hasn’t stopped a Dutch developer from giving it a go anyway, using RIM’s failed BlackBerry PlayBook.
