Tapper World Tour in Review – Serving booze can be almost as fun as drinking…

The moment I heard that Tapper World Tour was coming to the iOS, I was flooded with fond memories of my early days. And by “early” I do mean – about 3-4 years old. My dad built our first computer (I think it was some kind of Soviet Amiga clone or something) literally from scratch and I was lucky to be introduced to the IT world at such a young age. All of that is water under the bridge now, of course, but Tapper was one of the first games I laid my little hands on all those years ago.

Warner Bros. releases App Editions of The Dark Knight and Inception

Fresh off Apple’s announcement of in-app subscriptions yesterday, Warner Bros. has introduced an entirely new way for iDevice users to purchase movies on their iDevices. With the release of “App Editions” for the feature films The Dark Knight and Inception, users can now download or stream these flicks (via an IAP) from within the free universal apps.

App Editions provide a fully-loaded, connected viewing experience that gives consumers the first five minutes of a feature film and a portion of bonus content that can include games, trivia, soundtracks and soundboards. The entire feature film can be unlocked via an in-app purchase, which enables downloading and unlimited streaming, as well as access to the entire array of bonus content available within the App.

The cost of the movies are the same as on iTunes ($9.99 for Dark Knight and $11.99 for Inception), but you do get the added bonus of the extra content and 3G streaming. And aside from customised menus in 16 languages, the movies will be accompanied by subtitles in 34 different languages. Warner is planning on releasing an entire line up of App Editions in 2011, including new releases and catalog films. More info and demo video can be found below.

Sherlock Holmes Mysteries in Review – Elementary, my dear Watson!

As a child I simply adored Sherlock Holmes. I had the complete collection of works by Arthur Conan Doyle and later even read some of the spin-offs, though they were never half-as-good. The genius detective has been a hero of mine ad it always amazed me how he always managed to crack even the most bizarre of cases. And now, just in time for the release of the latest movie about the great Sherlock, Warner Brothers invite you to test your intellect in the Sherlock Holmes Mysteries.

I could have never fathomed in my wildest dreams that I would be able to set a world record without breaking anything and ending up in the hospital. For the past six years I haven’t chewed a single piece of gum (with much reason behind it, but I’ll refrain from telling the story), so you could only imagine my mortification when I attained the illustrious Guinness World record title for the largest bubble blown. How is this possible you ask? Well, in Guinness World Records, by Warner Bros., you can set the world record in 36 quirky and bizarre areas such as the most tattoos.
