Jet Set Radio iOS review

Jet Set Radio iOS review

I have incredibly fond memories of the Dreamcast era, and one of its standout games was Jet Set Radio. Indeed, I can quite vividly recall ditching a fair few uni lectures in order to play it.

Jet Set Radio is now available for iOS and Android, and the good news is that remains – in terms of looks, gameplay and sound – utterly fantastic.

News Corp calls it quits on The Daily

News Corp calls it quits on The Daily

If you follow News Corp goings on (I’m looking at Jan, our resident conspiracy theorist), you might recall something call The Daily, essentially a newspaper developed specifically for the iPad.

Once heralded as the saviour of journalism and publishing, Rupert Murdoch and Co have in fact decided to call it quits, announcing that The Daily will be laid to rest on December 15.

Apple’s Samsung-didn’t-copy-us statement goes live, contains much cheekiness

UK Judge Colin Birss made headlines – and a fair few fans, we imagine – back in July this year, when he ruled not only that Samsung didn’t rip off Apple, but that the Californians should issue a public statement absolving the South Koreans. Absolutely fantastic.

Needless to say Apple appealed the decision, and it looked like they might manage to wriggle out of it at one point, but the statement has now gone live. Hooray!

Hey, you! You’ve had enough iPad for one lifetime, with the third generation iPad announced in March followed by the fourth generation iPad and all-new iPad mini just the other night, right?

Well, the rumour mill, for one, is hungry for more, and it’s already looking ahead to the fifth generation iPad.

Apple: the stats (still the Best Company in the World EVER)

Apple: the stats (still the Best Company in the World EVER)

As we’ve pointed out many times before, Apple keynotes invariably start with the CEO taking to the stage and essentially blowing Apple’s trumpet for a good 10 minutes or so. Y’know, just to set the tone.

Tonight was no different, as Tim Cook took great pleasure in detailing to attendees how Apple continues to go from strength to strength.

Surprise! It’s the fourth generation iPad with A6X processor

Apple has been fairly busy at its “We’ve got a little more to show you” event at the California Theatre in San Jose tonight.

Just one month on from unveiling the iPhone 5 and new iPods, Apple has lifted the lid on the new Mac mini, the 13in Retina MacBook Pro (want), the new iMacs (want), the iPad mini (I’ll get to that shortly), and – as some predicted – a fourth generation iPad.

Full-sized iPad to join iPad mini next week?

The rumour mill seems fairly convinced that the iPad mini will launch at Apple’s “We’ve got a little more to show you” event this coming Tuesday.

We’re also expecting a 13in Retina MacBook Pro and new Mac Minis, and now we’re being told to brace ourselves for – wait for it – a new new iPad. What the…?

Apple remembers Steve Jobs one year on

Has it really been a year? On October 5, 2011, one day after the iPhone 4S was unveiled to the world, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away at home following a long battle with illness.

One year on, the Californians have posted a touching tribute their founder on the landing page of the Apple site.

App reviews coming soon

App reviews coming soon

We’ve a combined feature slash deal slash app review preview type thing right here. Is there no end to my talents? Ahem.

Recent app reviews have been fairly underwhelming, with the notable exception of N.O.V.A. 3. Well, I’ve gone and grabbed a bunch of decidedly promising stuff from the App Store, and I’m hoping we might see some more 5-star gaming.

Apple continues to play nice, introduces Maps section in App Store

Apple CEO Tim Cook stunned the world on Friday, with an open letter to customers apologising for "falling short" on the company’s in-house Maps app.

Better still, they’ve only gone and added a bloomin’ Maps section to the App Store, offering alternative mapping solutions to iOS 6's Apple Maps. What the...?
