Images and parts from the forthcoming iPhone continue to leak, and it seems almost certain now that it will have a 4-inch display. And given that all the major vendors have told employees that they can't take vacation time for several weeks starting on September 21, it seems almost certain that the new iPhone will be announced on September 12 as rumored, and will be available for purchase on September 21. The supposed event is now less than two weeks away! And Apple's announcement of it will likely come next week.

Review: Gluey by mobileAge

image

When I first saw Gluey I was a bit concerned that it was going to be too much like another iOS game I really like called Globs.  Thankfully the two are not really similar at all, because now I don’t have to decide which one I like better – I can enjoy them both as the separate games they are.  Gluey is a lot of fun, and the dynamically flowing game board keeps the player on their toes.  I do think the game could stand a name change, though, as Gluey just doesn’t do the concept much justice.



Hansel and Gretel - Epic Tales animated storybook

Hansel and Gretel has been brought to the app store with a great, interactive twist. Read this fun tale with your kids and see them play around with the animated environment. The interactive story features fantastic voice acting and a unique music score that combines together to create an experience like no other. This is not simply an e-book of the classic fairy tale, but an all round experience that your children will enjoy every second of.



New iPhone may not have NFC chip used by "mobile wallets"

image

AnandTech has posted today that it doesn't appear that the new iPhone expected next month will have an NFC chip. As you likely know, NFC stands for near field communication, and it's a technology for transmitting purchase information wirelessly. Some mobile phones have these chips, which let users touch a mobile-payment terminal with their phone as they leave a store to make payment. This is more common in other countries, but in the U.S. adoption has been slowed by the many competing systems.
