Amazing Ants iOS review

I was saying to the fatherland the other day that Lemmings would probably work quite well on smartphones and tablets, and that it’s kinda weird that it hasn’t materialised. A little further investigation reveals it was “re-imagined” as Caveman. Interesting.

Anyway! I’m sure you can see where I’m going with this. Amazing Ants is perhaps best described as a Lemmings clone for the smartphone and tablet generation.

Apple shares drop 11% after selling 47.8 million iPhones

Apple shares drop 11% after selling 47.8 million iPhones

It’s been all doom and gloom for Apple of late, with tumbling shares, and iPhone profits having “likely peaked”, and its online services being slated by some guy… The list goes on.

Any way you look at it, Apple’s Q4 results make for impressive reading, but it’s still not good enough for ye olde stock market.

Significant production cuts for iPhone and 10in iPad?

Lewis Curdie  Dec. 21, 2012 at 19:00

We’ve been hearing all sorts of bad news with regards to Apple of late; Apple Maps is rubbish, Google Maps for iOS 6 is great, the Californians posted a record single-day loss, iPhone profits have “likely peaked”… yadda yadda yadda.

The latest tale of woe suggests Apple has ordered production cuts for the iPhone and 10in iPad. Say it ain’t so.

Apple execs ‘seething’ as Google Maps returns to iOS

One of the surprise happenings this week was the return of Google Maps to iOS. It had been rumoured for a while, but kinda dropped off the radar for a bit. A pleasant surprise, for sure.

Indeed, for those who rely on smartphone-based maps, the reappearance of Google Maps is pretty much The Best Thing Ever, and one connected chap suggests Apple execs are “seething”.

As 2012 draws to a close, it’s time for everyone and his dog to publish Best Whatever of the Year lists. In the coming weeks, we’ll be looking at Best Jan Rants of 2012.

In the meantime, some company called “Apple” from California has listed what it considers the best App Store apps of the year.

Apple shares take another tumble, biggest drop in four years

Things seemed entirely peachy for Apple just a few months ago, with shares hitting a record high in September ahead of the iPhone 5 launch, and a new iPad launch record set by the iPad 4 and iPad mini in November.

Conversely, in the share world, Apple is taking a bit of a punching at the moment, and things went from bad to worse this week.

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!

Fifth gen iPad rumours already begin

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.
