I almost always prefer a good indie game over franchise games from a big publisher. I like to see the little guy win (in and outside of games), so any news forwarding that agenda is worthy in my book.
Chunky Pig, a marketing company for mobile game development (started by games industry veteran Nick Malaperiman), kicked off a contest at GDC to give game developers a chance to get their iOS game ideas noticed by premier publishers in the business (and even win an iPad mini). Enter the contest at Chunky Pig, or read below for the full press info on the event.
Ferrari, which produces a classy selection of headphone, is on the road again with a new offering: the Ferrari R300 ($432) active noise canceling headphones for iOS devices. While I think they're well worth the cost, you can find them on Amazon for $349!
The Scuderia Ferrari racing team was the inspiration for these iconic headphones, with the aerodynamic air vents and traditional grille of the GT cars. The diamond-shaped grilles are designed for durability and quality. The luxuriously soft ear pads convey maximum comfort.
One can never have too many USB ports, and the Satechi 10-Port USB 3.O hub (On sale for $59.99, usualy $69.99) certainly is welcome in my office. It looks like a power strip, but it's really a mighty USB hub. Because it is such a gathering spot, I call mine the hub Pub.
The unit has 9 regular USB 3.0 ports plus a port located on the end of the hub for iPad charging. This enables you to be connected to USB devices and your portable computer all at the same time from a single hub. The 10th port also features an On/Off switch.

ID America's latest offering for the iPhone 5 proves to me once again that it's the most creative and imaginative smartphone case supplier. It's a hoot visiting the company's website, www.idamericany.com to peruse all of its innovative creations.
When I think of X-Doria, I immediately picture its signature cases and covers adorned with hearts, Xs, and Os. But X-Doria has other designs as well. I received a 13" MacBook Air case for review from X-Doria, and its design looks like an overlapping field of envelope flaps in light and dark blue. It is a departure from the company's "Share the Love" Valentine’s collection I reviewed in February.
