I like cars. Guilty as charged. We have a couple of convertibles (an Alfa Romeo Spyder, a Fiat 2000) and now, even a Vespa. When we get a new vehicle, I try to buy a small diecast toy of that particular model. Just something to look at while the vehicles are in storage during the winter.
The cliché, of course, is that the knight in white shining armor rides in to save the damsel in distress and everyone lives happily ever after. Flying Princess severely bucks that trend with a sniveling “hero”, an overly ambitious princess and a cannon! Personally I think love might have drifted from being blind to teetering on the edge of insanity, but it makes for a great game, so who cares?
Finally! An awesome new handheld game for drum lovers! Drum Fanatics is a new app for your iPhone, iPod or iPad that allows you to get your drum addiction in even when you are away from your drum set. Or if you’re looking to start learning the rhythm of drums but don’t have a set yet, this is a fun easy way to start! This drum game uses your fingers in a five line music rhythm system so you can rock out to your favorite songs.
I recently reviewed a new stylus (see GoSmart review here), so figured I would swing back and repost on some of the drawing apps I used in the review. I also wanted to cover a unique "self-drawing" app created by Eric Hayes (an MIT math wiz and artist) called Set Paint Go. In this drawing roundup: Grafio, a very powerful diagramming and drawing toolset with a highly capable Lite version; Illustrator, another simple editor that can help you produce great looking graphics in like 2 seconds. I also have a few quick tips for when app crashes occur on older hardware, since I have been having some issues with an aging gadget...
Charlemagne said, "To have another language is to possess a second soul." Now you can have the ability to possess that second soul through an app available in the palm of your hands. Learning a second language requires constant maintenance and practice. The best way to learn a second (or third or fourth!) language is through repetition and continual exposure to the language. That is the idea behind the application called Easy Words.

I never had a piano lesson, even though we had a piano in the house, growing up. That piano collected dust and was more useful as a piece of furniture to display picture frames on. I always wished I had more initiative and learned to play.
But today, thanks to the magic that is the Piano Apprentice from ION Audio
, I actually learned how to play the melody from The Entertainer! And it just took about 30 minutes! The Piano Apprentice is a creative combination of a physical piano keyboard, and a free app with several lessons included, and tight integration between the software and hardware.
is really not the typical stylus your grandfather used (though it might resemble a sort of drafting instrument). It is substantially more, in point of fact. An ingenious twist of simple engineering applied to the challenge of drawing or writing on the iPad screen in a natural, tactile manner. As a former weather guy, I used to spend hours hunched over first paper charts (waaay back) and then later a computer screen/drawing tablet... mostly just drawing lines (always lines of equal something or other). In the bad old days, drawing on a computer screen was an act more akin to connecting the dots using a drawing puck (on a tablet surface), and the whole experience was frustrating, jerky, often producing an erroneous result. If I would have had an iPad and a GoSmart stylus, I would have relished the task! It might have helped me forecast the weather better as well--ok, joking aside, the GoSmart is a stylus worthy of it's name...read on to learn why you will want this one.
Beware! Upon downloading Cartoon Defence: Space Wars you will not be able to put it down! It is an incredibly addictive and fast paced game that will keep you entertained throughout its 80 increasingly difficult levels and its 3 varieties of game mode. It is your job to defend the planet cartoon from an onslaught of the Grey Tribe hordes that will nibble away at your defences.
