Last week the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and Bloomberg all reported that the next iPhone will have a 4-inch screen. Of course, no one knows for sure, but lots of evidence is pointing that way. The main questions have been whether it would create problems for developers and also whether it would fragment the market. iMore had a lucid article about Apple's options for a larger screen and what it would mean. If, for example, a larger screen changes the aspect ratio, it means that apps would generally have to be rewritten — and that it would take a lot of work.

Remember a few weeks ago I did a post about great apps for vacation?
Well, I went.
I went on a vacation, and you know what I brought with me? My iPhone. I never, ever put it down. My hand is now permanently stuck in phone holding position. It’s completely true. My wife replaced my phone with a box of Altoids once when I was sleeping. I woke up and, still groggy, I tried to check my email before I realized what was going on.
But, ultimately, hilarious.

Major media reports this week are all indicating that the new iPhone will have a larger screen -- likely 4 inches. First the Wall Street Journal reported that Sharp, LG, and Japan Display were getting their production lines ready to start producing the larger displays for the next iPhone. Then Reuters reported that production of the new screens could begin as early as next month.

There was a time when a considerable amount of my gaming focus went to third person adventure game classics from the likes of companies such as Sierra Online and LucasArts. That time has passed, in large part due to the fact that such games aren’t nearly as prevalent any more, but thankfully developers are starting to see the merit of this genre, and in particular this visual perspective, on modern gaming platforms. One such developer is Greg Chaffins, and his latest effort, simply titled UFO Adventure, shows he knows a thing or two about what I remember from my childhood and teen years.
