Game maker Dragon Stone’s new release, Rabbit Dash, sets itself up against some fierce competition. iPhone users aren’t exactly lacking in options if they like the continuously scrolling, beat-the-clock style offered by the endless-running genre. So what makes Rabbit Dash so special that it has a chance against the heavy hitters in this genre saturating iTunes?

Today I'd like to bring your attention to an iPad app called (quite appropriately) 'Great Maine Food.' As the name suggests, the app is a very powerful tool for finding a varitable smorgasbord of delectable delights when in Maine. However, the app doesn't stop at just listing good places to eat; instead, there is a wealth of useful information. Just check out some of the excellent features of the app (taken from the app's description):

I just received a press release saying that Onavo (free for a limited time) has just won another award. This app helps you get the most out of your data plan. It works in the background to compress your data usage so that you are effectively doubling or even tripling the amount of data usage available to you. The app is optimized for travelers, when data usage can be most expensive. Note, though, that although they're intending to add this capability, the app doesn't currently compress streaming video or VoIP usage such as Skype.

Many think iTunes is bloatware that should in no way be used for media synchronization. This is why I started making some very serious benchmarks. In a nutshell, the results: while the actual loading, tab switching, audio media format conversion etc. of iTunes may indeed be painfully slow, particularly under Windows, for synchronizing media to iOS devices it is in no way worse than the free and highly recommended competition. Actually, just the opposite - at least with the latest (tested) iTunes versions...
I also wanted to provide up-to-date benchmark results – something like the excellent, albeit highly outdated ones HERE.

According to a study from the electronics shopping site, Retrevo.com, 34% of iPhone users thought they already owned a 4G smartphone. 4G phones are still not available, but they are coming, so the confusion may mean that 4G adoption will happen more slowly than planned. After all, why would you get a 4G phone when you think you already own one?

Today, I've played a bit with printing right from iOS devices (iDevices for short).
As you may know, Apple's own solution, AirPrint, is compatible with only few printers, all from HP. (Fortunately, no longer only the [in my humble opinion] lowly and unreliable inkjets are supported, but also LaserJets, but still: there's still no support for other manufacturers' gear and not even HP's own, older models.)
Needless to say, the two printers I tried to print to, a Samsung MI-2525w and an HP LaserJet 1320, aren't supported either.
