Pac-Man is on sale this weekend only in the Apple App Store! The Pacman iPhone app generally costs gamers $4.99, but right now it is available for $1.99. 

This is a tremendous port of the original game that will make any old school arcade game fan drool. Pac-Man is a classic that I am glad is being offered to younger generations through the iPhone. In general, I am a major fan of classic games being re-done on mobile iOS devices. They are a perfect fit because most are simple and elegent, and yet tested by countless gamers through the years, which ensures a dynamite product!

Apple Accounts for 50 Percent of the Smartphone Market Profits!

In the fourth quarter of 2010, Apple was able to claim over 50 percent of the smartphone industry's profits and 20 percent of the overall revenue despite only controlling 4 percent of the global market share!

With only a small market share percentage Apple has been able to realize such outrageous profit numbers because of high-priced units with large profit margins. This is probably not the best news for iPhone customers who are shelling out the premium prices for the Apple smartphone, but the Northern California consumer electronics company sure knows what they are doing.

This analysis came from Asymco who compiled the data based on reports from the top 8 smartphone producers: Apple, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Research in Motion, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson.
