Big Fish Games, publishers of critically acclaimed games like Everest: Hidden Expedition and Drawn: The Painted Tower comes a similar title that employs the familiar finger tapping search for objects on screen, this time wrapped within the story of mystery and intrigue set in a 19th century town encumbered with a secret shrouded behind what appears on the surface to be sinister overtones.

Let’s face it. For those of us early adopters of microsim cards because of Iphone 4, we know that microsim cards are not catching on in any other phone model and is likely to stay that way for a while. However, for about US$20, the Chinese have developed a dual simcard adaptor that allows you to slot in a normal-sized simcard in an external adaptor, while at the same time allowing you to keep your existing Iphone 4 microsim in the simcard tray – in layman terms, this means that the 2 simcards (Normal Sim + Microsim) are essentially paired up much like batteries connecting in series.

The recent success of Project Watson, an IBM computer, in demolishing the two all-time most successful champions on the Jeopardy quiz show has focused attention on the coming of natural language understanding to computers — and to our iPhones. The trick has been to teach a computer not just to search databases of information but to understand natural human language. Imagine how convenient that would be: you'd never have to type a query or tap your phone's screen again.

iPhones greet us every time we turn them on. Your greeting is the wallpaper that you select to see. You can look for interesting photos online and add it to your iPhone or you can use one of your own photos. I prefer to use one of my own because it always makes me smile. Here's how my iPhone greets me.
How does your iPhone greet you?

Evan Hunt, a professional photographer, emailed me to let me know about his enormous enthusiasm for the iPhone and to point me to his project to take pictures every day with his iPhone and post them to his blog. The results are quite impressive. He also has two portfolios of iPhone photos (one and two). It's fun to see what an experienced professional can do with this device.

Although I don't have any ideas about the which came first between the chicken and the egg, I do have some ideas about which is better...color or black-and-white when it comes to photography. In the olden days when I was a little boy, there was no choice. Black-and-White film was available. You took your pictures and then took the film to the local drug store. About a week or two later, you'd return to the drug store and pick up your rather small black-and-white prints. Once we started to use color film, we had a choice, color or black-and-white. However, if you started with color negatives, you'd probably have to print the black-and-white version yourself, or send it to a photo lab.

The video interview above with handeholder was taken at Macworld 2011.
I love MightyMeeting. If you are a presenter, or salesperson, or just love sharing great content, this system plus app is a must-have.
A recent report from CNET says according to the data from IHS, Apple is holding the top rank among other smartphones in app store revenue worldwide. Apple just feeling the heat in the smartphone market with a heavy competition just managed their top position this year too.

I previously posted about OverDrive Media Console when it first came out for the iPhone. Now it has also been optimized out for the iPad. As I said previously, the app lets you check out ebooks from your local library. Within the app you can find your local library, search for books, and download them.

The Speck fitted case is a two piece hard shell case. The inside has a nice soft touch to protect your device. The outside has the hard casing, but the fabric adds it owns texture and style. I do not recall seeing any other cases that are similar to this in regards to the fabric.

Most of the minimally alotted gaming time (am trying to stay on a budget) again spent playing Galaxy on Fire 2 and Robokill (from the last "What I Played" post), but also found some time to try (in vain) to keep big rig trucks from hitting each other (Highway King--review http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/97/highw

I have always been a fan of brick breaking games, ever since the good old days of playing Breakout and Arkanoid on consoles like the Atari 2600 and my original Apple II+. Since that time, I have enjoyed watching this genre develop and grow into a more sophisticated arcade platform. As such, I was absolutely thrilled when we were contacted not long ago by the developers of the latest entrant into this genre, Atomic Ball HD. The developers were kind enough to send along a copy of the game for me to check out, so let’s go ahead and dive right into it.

It's time, I think, for Twitter to acquire Instagram or Picplz and Twitpic. Twitpic lets you upload pictures (from any digital source) onto Twitter. Instagram and Picplz let you take pictures with an iPhone, alter them, and then upload them to Twitter (among other places). It's time for Twitter to make some acquisitions to smooth out the process so that when I (we) use Twitter (the app) we can take pictures with our iPhones, alter them in whatever way we want, and upload them all within the same app. Come on Twitter, make my day! Please. :)
