I know I have written about this app multiple times, but I still rely on it as my go-to calendar app and feel so strongly about it that I would feel guilty if I let this opportunity go by without letting you know.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Donut Games is the king of causal arcade games. They often manage to take a silly premise and turn it into quite the enjoyable product, which is exactly the case with Bubble Pig. The idea of an overweight pig bouncing around a forest consuming everything edible in sight and avoiding foxes doesn’t really sound all that enthralling, but when you put the patent Donut Games spin on it the game becomes both interesting and quite challenging. I’m not going to put this at the top of the Donut Games’ chart, but it certainly has their trademark quality level.

In the intriguing words of Sir Jonathan Ive: “We try to develop products that seem somehow inevitable. That leave you with the sense that that’s the only possible solution that makes sense... Our products are tools and we don’t want design to get in the way. We’re trying to bring simplicity and clarity."
“I think subconsciously people are remarkably discerning. I think that they can sense care.
A news report from China gives a rare look inside a Foxconn factory at Zhengzhou, where over 70% of the iPhones are made. The video features Fioxconn head Terry Gou taking a tour inside the factory. It opens with scenes from a helicopter ride above the Foxconn campus, giving you a good sense for the enormity of the manufacturing facility, which covers over 2 square miles and employs over 100,000 workers. The video shows the assembly line for the iPhone 4S frame and motherboard, which produces 10,000 units a day. It also shows a "clean room" where the iPhone 4S camera is manufactured.

The iZON from stem is a beautiful, functional Wi-Fi enabled security camera / NannyCam. In fact, it looks like it was designed by Apple, which is high praise indeed. It's a small cylinder, reminiscent of Apple's original iSight external camera.
The removable convex base connects to the iZON via magnets, allowing for some flexible angles.
I dropped my iPhone the other day. Needless to say, I didn't like it. It seemed to happen in slow motion. Sure, iCloud would have a backup of most of my data but, as an app developer, even a day or two's loss of use of my iPhone would be difficult, and expensive.
Lot's of news to post up on, and I played at least one new game this week. Shoot the Zombirds created by Infinite Dreams (Jelly Defense, Can Knockdown), is target practice in Halloween-land (if there was such a place), a second variation to Shoot the Birds. Also posting a rewind review on Chromian Wars 1.2 as they updated their app after our initial feedback. Both games are worth a look. For the news: a new expansion pack coming for the top 3-D space shooter, Galaxy on Fire 2 (probably my most played game any week); a new turn-based strategy game called LostStar Tactics (from the creators of Staunch Defense); and speaking of exciting new TD, just out, Defender Chronicles II! Whew, that's alot, so let's dig in, shall we...
