DEAD TRIGGER, the newest game release from MADFINGER games (makers of the other App Store smash hit, SHADOWGUN) is one of the best First Person Shooters available right now. This game is freakishly scary, and has been a very hard game for me to put down, partly due to its killer graphics, and partly due to its excellent gameplay. The post-apocalyptic environment you find yourself in is desolate with lethal danger around every corner. Abandoned buildings and deserted alleyways will become your tomb, if you are lucky. If not so lucky, well then I reckon you end up like them.
I've been consistently saying for years now, that it was without a doubt, only a relatively short matter of time until Apple released a smaller version of the iPad tablet. Well, it seems as if that day may finally be right around the corner. Multiple reliable sources, including the Washington Post and Bloomberg, (among others) are reporting this week, that the rumors of the iPad mini are not just rumors. The new iPad mini will likely be released by the end of this year, possibly as early as September. In fact, it sounds like Apple has its product manufactures busy, in full swing producing parts for this new iPad mini, preparing for a massive product launch very soon. Not only will the iPad mini be a direct competitor to the Amazon Kindle and Google Nexus, but it will fill a niche that needs to be addressed, since many of us, as much as we do love our iPads, would love a smaller, lighter, more compact, more portable version of the same thing as much, or more!
Charging on the go... One of the questions I get most often from folks embarking on summertime adventues with tech toys is: "How do I keep my devices charged while on my travels?"
That's a great and crucial question! To address that concern, I'd like to introduce to you two handy, affordable and very useful products: the goBAT II portable USB battery charger by Scosche, and the Mojo Armor external battery case by ibattz.
If you have been following my articles in iPhone Life Magazine and my blogs here at iPhoneLife.com, you know I am somewhat of a rugged case afficianado, and that I am known for testing heavy-duty cases thoroughly and aggressively in the field so that I can report back to you in detail on my findings. So it's with great enthusiasm that I share with you this incredible new case: the TAKTIK by LUNATIK.

We all take calculated risks. The adrenaline junkie takes a calculated risk when he or she BASE jumps or gracefully crosses a slackline high above the ground. The alcoholic or heroin junkie take calculated risks, namely that they won't die from liver cirrhosis or an inadvertent overdose. The junk-food junkie takes calculated risks with their diet, hoping that the genetically modified and highly processed foods don't catch up with them too soon.
Greetings my fellow travelers and adventures and welcome once again to my Summer Travel special series here at iPhone Life. In this installment I'd like to share with you one of my favorite apps for on the road and on the go adventures.
