Hello there, folks! I’m finally back from my long deserved vacation in the wonderful Italian town of Rimini. I know, you missed me Anyhow, I won’t bore you with descriptions of the wonderful time I had. Instead, allow me to tell you about a game that has kept me entertained during the long flights there and back as well as in some lengthy train trips. I’m talking, of course, about a recently released TBS by the name of Highborn.
With the New Year well underway, lots of people are working hard to stick to those resolutions that we make every year that aim to better ourselves and/or our personal situations. For me personally it is all about organisation and with my hands all over Concrete Software’s organizational app To-Do List Pro, my New Year’s resolution might just stick.
Games based on TV shows or Movies have earned quite an ill reputation on PC and consoles. A lot of cash gets put into the overall franchise marketing and the games themselves often turn out to be C class products. On the iPhone, however, quite a number of Movie and TV-show based titles have already been released and some have even received well-deserved praise. And I’m happy to report that Spartacus: Blood and Sand is one of the better ones.

Here’s an interesting piece of trivia about crossword puzzles – Liverpool journalist Arthur Wynne is said to have invented it, originally called “Word-Cross” when it first appeared in the Sunday edition of New York World on December 21, 1913. Nearly a century old, crossword puzzles are so quietly integrated into our daily lives that we may take them for granted. Anywhere in the world, someone is tapping his pen, thinking of answers to brain teasers that draw upon a limitless resource of words, facts, personalities, events and history.
When it comes to viewing and editing Microsoft Office products on your iPhone/iPod Touch (primarily Word and Excel), there are essentially two apps that lead the way: QuickOffice and Documents to Go. Each have their own strengths and a user base that prefer one over the other. If you’re a heavy PowerPoint user however, choosing DataViz’s Office suite just got easier. With the latest 3.0 update of Documents to Go Premium, users can now even create/edit PowerPoint slides right on their trusty iDevices. For road warriors who do their share of presentations, this new ability could prove invaluable indeed. Another great new feature found in this update is the added support for Gmail attachments. That’s right, you can now edit/view files directly from your Gmail account. For those who don’t require PowerPoint, check out DocsToGo, which has less features but a more affordable price tag ($9.99). Complete app details after the break.
Update: Our massive Black Friday Apps Bargain round up can be found Here
Pack your bags, sell your children (if you have any), Black Friday is nearly upon us!
November 27′s festivities will culminate in the trampling death of at least one unwary American shopper at the hands of bloodthirsty doorbuster shoppers. As the season of good cheer approaches, the season of robbing/theft/murder will parade the streets along with the mob of angry, drooling 4 AM cut-throat bargain shoppers.
To get ahead in the game, Ecatcher, Inc. has released a helpful app known as TGI Black Friday which will help you find the best deals from the biggest boxes such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and tons more. The UI is simple, elegant, and makes the job of finding those deals possible.
So, if you’re like me, start planning now, and write your will just to be safe.
Good luck and may the force be with you.

A few weeks ago I decided to upgrade from a Sony Ericsson phone to an iPhone 3GS. While the extra $30 a month data plan won’t keep me out of college, the additional $20 unlimited texting plan just might. Thankfully, Textfree Unlimited is here to solve that problem, and for just a one time fee of $6, it’s a heck of a lot better than paying an extra $240 a year simply to text my friends.
