iOS 6.1 available; adds ability to purchase movie tickets via Fandango using Siri

image

iOS 6.1 became available on Monday, and no doubt you will want to upgrade. If you're in the habit of syncing with your desktop computer, you can simply connect your device and go into iTunes and click the Check for Update button. However, you may want to consider updating "over the air," which requires a WiFi connection. A great article on TidBITS recommeds this method of updating because the iTunes update is much larger. For example, the iPhone over-the-air update is 107 MB whereas the iTunes update is 989.5 MB.



Review: Taste My Steel by Rockhard Games

image

Who doesn’t like a good side scrolling infinite runner?  If you just raised your hand, this review probably won’t interest you.  For those that are left, I’m afraid this game might not interest you.  I appreciate that the developers felt they were doing something slightly different than the rest of the crowd, but frankly the game feels like a Robot Unicorn / Unicorn Dash knock-off with a horse riding, sword wielding demon.  While in theory that sounds cool, in practice it comes off as a cheap second rate attempt at doing something that’s already been done much better.  This may sound awfully harsh, but keep in mind we’re talking about a genre that already has plenty of entries.

In either case (pun intended) after seeing a plethora of case makers at CES in Las Vegas, you should be able to find a case that meets your needs.

It's Tax Time, which means paperwork, unless you go paperless with Doxie

If you're like me, the tax paperwork is trickling in, and you're compiling an envelope (or box!) full of receipts, payments, tax forms, etc., in preparation of tax day. Now might be the perfect time to make a New Year's resolution to scan and archive such paperwork.
