image

Recently, eWeek posted a handy round-up of 10 iPhone IT administration utilities. As it happens, I have to do a fair amount of sys admin work and was looking for just such a list. Only 2 of these apps are gratis (an SSH terminal app and flashlight), but most of them are under 10 bucks.

Use free FStream player for internet radio

image

I've been tweaking on Ubuntu lately, trying to get a radio tuner device called a Radio Shark functional in Linux on my laptop. I finally have a pretty good solution, but wanted to be able to stream the output on my home network. I thought what better portable player than my wifi-equipped Touch.

 This game has been out for awhile, but I have been so engrossed playing it, I’m just getting round to posting on it. I often find games that have 1-2 star ratings that are decent, and games with 5 star ratings that disappoint, so I think ratings are a bit, ahem, overrated.

Hellfire by Astraware and Pazzazz games will take you back to the cold war era, when the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. were locked into an escalation of military might. The top helicopter gunships of the day were the Mi-24 Hind (Soviet) and AH-64 Apache (American), and just about anyone from that era is familiar with the ferocious firepower of these helicopters. The Hind has a longer history and more varied operational capability than the AH-64, so it's not exactly a fair comparison.



LetterBug by Portable Zoo Released

"LetterBug is a frantically fun, and challenging word-spell puzzle game, new from Portable Zoo.  In Letter Bug, players spell words from layers of letters. The bigger the words and the faster you spell them, the more points you get.  As you “clear” letter layers, more letters come up onto the primary layer to use.
