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.

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.

Stick your iPhone, or iPad, where you want it with these neat gadgets

image

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, I had a chance to see a lot of neat gadgets, many of which are not yet available to the public. And some might never become available, without help from crowd funding sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Here are a few including some that you can help fund and even influence! Dash IT is a neat, affordable alternative to suction cup mounted GPS units and phone holders. The problem with suction cup mounts are threefold. First, they can obstruct your view of the road, which is dangerous. Second, they advertise to bad guys that you have an expensive gadget in your car. Even if the mount is removed. That telltale ring is still visible.

iPhone Reviews | iPhone Life Magazine

We have several iPhone reviews.  Articles like, iPhone Goes 3G,is one of many that gives you a more in depth look at Apple's products. Here are several iPhone reviews on past and current models.

"On July 11th, 2008, Apple and AT&T stores started selling the iPhone 3G, and over one million consumers bought one in the first three days, making this the hottest smart phone launch ever.  The 3G brings speed,assisted GPS, and a new low price to Apple's smart phone platform. And while the hardware has definitely been improved, it's the OS 2.0 and software suite that is truly revolutionary."

In iPhone 3G S and OS 3.0, we take a first look at the new 3G S. Resting in your hand, it looks pretty much like the 3G, but in this case, looks are deceiving. The iPhone 3G S sports a faster processor, better battery life, a 3 megapixel camera, enhanced 3D graphics, and a variety of other improvements.  Best of all, it's claimed to be twice as fast as the 3G.

We also reviewed the new OS 3.0 and software suite.  Apple added some nice features, including Cut & Paste capability, enhanced A2DPBluetooth that supports stereo headsets, an upgrade of SMS to full Multi MediaServices, improved search feature, landscape keyboard in Mail and other apps,and additional enhancements to Calendar, Contacts, iPod, and Safari.  Apple also added a new native app to the application suite.  VoiceMemo lets you capture and edit short audio recordings and e-mail or SMS them toa friend.

iPhone reviews: Apple began selling an unlocked versionof the iPhone 4S (iPhone Life Article Here). That means that you can use it with any carrier, andyou don't need to sign a contract.  Unlocked phones are a big advantage for frequent travelers. GSM is the most common standard abroad,and the whole cell phone business model is typically much different in other countries. No contracts, no subsidized phones. You simply buy a SIM card and put it in your phone. You can even buy SIM cards at kiosks in airports and on the street.
