The flies have it

image

You would think living in Maine with all the blackflies, ticks and mosquitos biting and buzzing around I'd be sick of slapping them all the time, but introduce Fly-flap (.99) and yup, I'm addicted.

The game is literally about slapping flies. The audio is kind of funny too. I like the graphics, since there's something almost surreal about their look - not lifelike but not really cartoonish either.

Rē not for me, not yet. Still prefer a dedicated Universal Remote Control.

While attending CES, I blogged about the trend of using an iPhone or iPod touch as a universal remote.  Since then, I have had a chance to play with the  from NewKinetix.

I really wanted to like the Rē.  I am the gadget guy, who always has the latest of everything.  I have owned numerous high-end universal remote controls, from Philips, Sony, Logitech (Harmony) and Monster Cable.  I am not opposed to spending $100 or more for a device that can connect all of my audio and video equipment and displace multiple remotes.



New free iPhone browser Opera Mini downloaded over 1 million times on first day in App Store

Be sure to read our blogger Werner's review of this new, free web browser for the iPhone. Opera Mini was downloaded over 1 million times on its first day in the App Store yesterday! That's amazing. It's currently the top download among all categories. The beauty of Opera Mini is that it routes web pages to a server before they get to your iPhone. That server compresses the pages up to 90%, greatly speeding up your web browsing. Plus, it has other great features.

I'm going to examine this app more closely in the next week and give you a report.
