With NumPad, you can use your iPhone or iPod Touch as a numeric keypad, an extended keyboard, or to annotate music. If you use a Mac with OS X 10.4 or later, NumPad does not require any additional software on your computer. The app connects easily through Screen Sharing, simply by following the directions found on the app. Windows users will need a VNC Server software like RealVNC.
Ground Effect is a vicious dichotomy of everything that should be right about racing games and everything that is wrong about them. It boasts some of the best track design I’ve seen in a mobile racing game to date, yet this same track design makes the races aggravating and seemingly impossible to win at times. The game encourages you to think outside the box and then punishes you for doing so. Luckily the game gorgeous to look at, has a cool soundtrack, and despite its frustrations can be quite fun to play. If you understood all that you probably don’t need the remainder of this review, but for the rest of us…

Apple has a great head start on other platforms, with their App Store. And it may be an insurmountable lead. But there is still work to do.
Apple needs to create a new class of apps, specifically "ONLY on the iPhone".
As Microsoft, Google, and others target the key developers, it's time for Apple to say these our ours and you can't have them. (Here's what Microsoft thinks about apps and how the important ones will be on every platform... http://gizmodo.com/5407068/microsofts-ray-ozzie-apps-dont-make-your-phone-special?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+gizmodo%2Ffull+%28Gizmodo%29&utm_content=My+Yahoo)

Tetris proved to be quite an addictive game and was clearly well loved, as evidenced by the myriad of clones that followed over the years. I will unashamedly admit that I too was a junkie, but the one thing that Tetris lacked was a real purpose. Of course nowadays the developer would probably just throw in a bunch of achievements and “voila”, you have a purpose. That doesn’t really count. Thankfully, Tumble Jumble has come along to remedy the situation. It’s clear that the developers hold some respect for Tetris in their hearts, but they also seem to realize that such a game can be made with a purpose. And a couple of amusing characters, to boot!
For years I have looked for a "minimalist" portable and universal charger and cable system to support our phones, cameras, GPS units and other electronic devices while traveling.
Tired of hauling around a bag of chargers and different cables to match the varying connection ports on each device, I finally initiated an exhaustive Internet search accompanied by lots of contact emails to clarify specs, etc.
All of this effort has paid off, however, in the form of a single charger that works in vehicle 12V sockets as well as international power mains (with appropriate adapter plugs) from 90-240 VAC, AND a single cable with interchangable Tips at the device end.
