I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Donut Games is the king of causal arcade games. They often manage to take a silly premise and turn it into quite the enjoyable product, which is exactly the case with Bubble Pig. The idea of an overweight pig bouncing around a forest consuming everything edible in sight and avoiding foxes doesn’t really sound all that enthralling, but when you put the patent Donut Games spin on it the game becomes both interesting and quite challenging. I’m not going to put this at the top of the Donut Games’ chart, but it certainly has their trademark quality level.

In the intriguing words of Sir Jonathan Ive: “We try to develop products that seem somehow inevitable. That leave you with the sense that that’s the only possible solution that makes sense... Our products are tools and we don’t want design to get in the way. We’re trying to bring simplicity and clarity."
“I think subconsciously people are remarkably discerning. I think that they can sense care.
A news report from China gives a rare look inside a Foxconn factory at Zhengzhou, where over 70% of the iPhones are made. The video features Fioxconn head Terry Gou taking a tour inside the factory. It opens with scenes from a helicopter ride above the Foxconn campus, giving you a good sense for the enormity of the manufacturing facility, which covers over 2 square miles and employs over 100,000 workers. The video shows the assembly line for the iPhone 4S frame and motherboard, which produces 10,000 units a day. It also shows a "clean room" where the iPhone 4S camera is manufactured.

The iZON from stem is a beautiful, functional Wi-Fi enabled security camera / NannyCam. In fact, it looks like it was designed by Apple, which is high praise indeed. It's a small cylinder, reminiscent of Apple's original iSight external camera.
The removable convex base connects to the iZON via magnets, allowing for some flexible angles.
I dropped my iPhone the other day. Needless to say, I didn't like it. It seemed to happen in slow motion. Sure, iCloud would have a backup of most of my data but, as an app developer, even a day or two's loss of use of my iPhone would be difficult, and expensive.
Lot's of news to post up on, and I played at least one new game this week. Shoot the Zombirds created by Infinite Dreams (Jelly Defense, Can Knockdown), is target practice in Halloween-land (if there was such a place), a second variation to Shoot the Birds. Also posting a rewind review on Chromian Wars 1.2 as they updated their app after our initial feedback. Both games are worth a look. For the news: a new expansion pack coming for the top 3-D space shooter, Galaxy on Fire 2 (probably my most played game any week); a new turn-based strategy game called LostStar Tactics (from the creators of Staunch Defense); and speaking of exciting new TD, just out, Defender Chronicles II! Whew, that's alot, so let's dig in, shall we...

When The Tossing Dead came out I included it in a weekly article called “10 App Store Games To Watch” where I discuss new releases that I think are worth keeping an eye on (or possibly even outright buying). As no one is perfect, I’m sometimes wrong about my choices. In this case, however, I’m definitely not. If you’re a fan of Fruit Ninja style games, you’ll really enjoy this. If you dig obliterating the undead, why not trying tossing them? If you like both of the previously mentioned things, you’ll be in seventh heaven with this game.
The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with. Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below. Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer. For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).
In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."
Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.
What to know how to create your own app? "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
