If you loved the original Fruit Ninja game for the iOS then you would definitely love the new Fruit Ninja – Puss in Boots edition. For those of you who do not know about Fruit Ninja, which is undoubtedly one of the best iPhone games ever. The object of the game is to swipe your fingers on the screen to slash the fruits that come up from below the screen, while at the same time avoiding bombs that will instantly end the game. Fruit Ninja is a very addictive game, and it only got better with the release of the Puss in Boots edition of the game.
DreamWorks’s Puss in Boots makes his way into the iOS through the already fun and addictive Fruit Ninja game by Half Brick. The most notable addition to the original game is the Bandito mode, where you have to go through three acts with different challenges, and then you can enter the final battle. And now you can slash at the fruits using three fingers at the same time, you now have three times the fruit slashing power! You will also hear Puss's voice in the background every time you get a combo, or if you accidentally slash at bombs and splatter fruit juice all over the screen. And just like the original game, Fruit Ninja – Puss in Boots version also have lots of colorful unlockable blades and backgrounds that can only add in the enjoyment.
If you're a fan of the original Fruit Ninja game, loved the Shrek movies and the new Puss in Boots one, or if you love them both then you will definitely love the new Fruit Ninja – Puss in Boots version. Now go out there and be the greatest Fruit Ninja ever!
Looking for the perfect gift for your iPhone-loving special someone? As you may already know, the problem with gift shopping for an iPhone lover is not a shortage of things you can buy, but the complete opposite. There are so many iPhone accessories and add-ons that it is very difficult to decide on just one. So here are some suggestions on things to buy to help you get out of your Apple iPhone gift shopping dilemma.
It is no surprise that most people use their iPhones as an mp3 player, if your special someone is an audiophile then why not give something to enhance their listening experience? If they like listening to music on the go, why not give them a pair of Urbanears headphones. These headphones come in different colors and designs, and they also give superb sound quality. If they are more of a homebody then give them an iPhone dock with speakers? Philips have a wide array of iPhone speakers that are compatible with both iPhones and iPads, some even have a built-in alarm clock.
The iPhone is not a cheap gadget so obviously their owners would want to protect them. Protective cases are always a welcome treat for iPhone owners. There are thousands of designs you can choose from so you can surely find the perfect iPhone accent for just about anyone. There are vibrant, cartoon-ish designs for fun-loving people, and there are also elegant designs for those with more sophistication, just choose the protective case that suits the personality of the person you are giving it to.
Apple has seeded iOS 5.1 to developers, a pre-release version of iOS that includes enhanced dictation support during text input "on supported devices," something that has currently been limited to iPhone 4S, the only iOS device that supports Siri. Nothing suggests that Apple mentions the developers that Sir will be expanded to other devices, but we can hope on the possibility that at least the speech recognition portion of Siri's technology could be added to iPod touch, iPad and earlier iPhone models.
Reviewers note that Apple's Siri performs more accurate recognition and far more sophisticated actions based on recognized speech then Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.
In addition, Apple has released Xcode 4.3 beta to developers, a required version of Xcode for those wishing to develop and test their applications with iOS 5.1 devices. This iOS 5.1 release is crucial. iOS SDK 5.1 provides support for developing iOS applications and includes the complete set of Xcode tools, compilers, and frameworks for creating applications for iOS and Mac OS X. With this software, you can develop applications that run on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 5.1. You can also test your applications using the included iOS Simulator, which supports iOS 5.1.
This version of iOS is intended only for installation on devices registered with Apple’s developer program. Be warned that attempting to install this version of iOS in an unauthorized manner could put your device in an unusable state.

And what’s new in version 3.0??
After the difficulties the last version had (of being ugly and crashing your phone) the new version works faster and smoother with improved search and browsing. It’s a faster, fuller Facebook for iPhone, it beats the browser version in my opinion.
In October 2010, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs announced on the stage at the Apple Cupertino campus to expose a preview of OS X Lion, FaceTime for Mac, iLife ’11 and the latest MacBook Air design. As you probably know, MacBook Air came with an all-new and thinner and lighter body, a higher-resolution display, a large Multi-Touch single-button track pad, flash/SSD storage, and battery life improvements. Those weren’t the only plans for 2010, new 15 inch MacBook Air was also scheduled for a late 2010 release, however, because of the late testing, these 15-inchers which had the same hinges as the smaller Airs, were failing to reliably hold the weight of the larger bezel/screens, Apple made the decision that a whole new hinge would have to be redesigned. Unfortunately, the 15-inch Air had to be omitted from the current product cycle. Some prototypes of the 2010 15-inch MacBook Air are still reportedly floating around Cupertino.
In early 2012, according to sources from the upstream supply chain, the company will update the present 11.6- and 13.3-inch models and add a new 15-inch model we’ve been hearing about. Some updates will be available for the next MacBook Air models and will include a better board graphics and a new Ivy Bridge processor that consumes less power while providing a speed boost in the CPU and GPU department (also expected in the next generation MacBook Pros). These processors are scheduled for release sometime during the first quarter of next year and we expect to see a re-designed 15-inch MacBook Air soon.
I hope they won’t encounter problems again and the new MacBook Air models are going to be available on our stores in the early 2012 as expected because I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
Well okay, not really, but when your iPhone all of a sudden starts exuding deep, dense smoke and glowing red hot you may find yourself wondering when you joined MI-6, and if Tom Cruise is on his way in to save the day. Especially if you experienced some slight reception problems just before the thing went all red dwarf in your hand.
One guy aboard an Australian flight from Lismore to Sydney certainly go the shock of his life today; shortly after landing in Sydney, his phone began smoking and glowing, for no apparent reason. Immediately an aircrew attendant blasted the device with an extinguisher, but not before it caused serious alarm for both the iPhone's owner and the surrounding passengers and crew aboard the craft. Said the airline in question, "In accordance with company standard safety procedures, the flight attendant carried out recovery actions immediately and the red glow was extinguished successfully."
No one on the flight was injured in any way, but that wasn't enough to soothe the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, to whom reports of the incident have been duly submitted. Further, the iPhone 4 itself has been sent to the ATSB for further investigation.
It's been awhile since we've heard news of an iPhone commencing self-destruct operations; the 11 incidents in France in '09 where the European iPhone suddenly decided it was tired and needed to explode internally. According to the Wall Street Journal, an Apple spokeswoman announced that Apple is looking "forward to working with the officials investigating the incident."
Hopefully they find the cause of the iPhone 4's behavior soon; maybe they should ask Siri what happened.
These days, you can't go to the store without being bombarded by the Angry Birds franchise. Angry Birds, first introduced to Apple's iDevices 2 years ago; it has become one of the most popular apps on iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices.
Angry Birds, developed by Rovio Mobile, is a puzzle game popular with all age groups; even three year old children play on their parents' iPhone whenever possible. With new updates available all the time, in addition to the Seasonal, Rio and the in development Magic versions, the game at its core stays the same. Your mission: destroy those evil green pigs with as few birds as possible. Your means: a slingshot flung red, black, white, yellow or blue bird aimed at toppling various items. You can find stones, slabs of wood, and ice all within these puzzles. Each level gets progressively more difficult as you go along. This puzzle game has reached well over 10 million sales, and reviews of the playability and maniacal fun have been overwhelmingly positive.
The main characters in this game, the oh so Angry Birds, are on a mission. In the original version, the birds are rescuing their eggs from the evil, slobbering, carnivorous green pigs; the storyline changes with each version. For instance, in Angry Birds Rio, the birds themselves were seized by smugglers, and after affecting their own escapes, the Angry Birds go on a mission to rescue their captured brethren.
Stores like Wal*Mart, Target and Toys'R'Us can't seem to stock their Angry Bird merchandise quickly enough; dog's squeaky chew toys, frisbees, plushies, puzzles, backpacks, hats and other clothing, keychains... even blankets and towels bearing the birds' and pigs' likenesses are found throughout stores nationwide. The plushies even come in 5", 7" and 12" sizes, and most of them can be squeezed to trigger the character's trademark evil cackle.
There's even a YouTube video or 12 featuring the Christmas light's displays of people's homes, with the lights themselves timed to the Angry Birds theme song.
So, will the Angry Birds franchise continue to dominate the app (and commercial) scene with its extensive story lines and star leveling that encourages game replay? I certainly hope so; I'd hate to see what the birds will do when they get angry at us.
The atlas? - An old word!! More perfect is, about my opinion: iPad, more perfect and better than an atlas or a dictionary.The atlas or the dictionary are primarily two different books, with a lots of information, but they really weighing about 1, 1 / 2 kilogram.....HEAVY .....
Once again iPAD... lets talk about iPAD ... plenty of information, the dimensions of about 24.3 to 19 cm, thickness 1.4 cm and weight like 680 grams, "Wi-Fi" in all areas! It is portable and mobile (= connected to cellular mobile). It is dedicated to all ages.
Now talking about the children, IPAD made for them the joy of Toy Story 3.The application is easy to play, easy to handle and the kids can enjoy a world of toys with lights, colorful games with an excellent soundtrack.Buzz, Woody are the cute characters and they are present in a pleasant and childish mode. The game is 3D and the glasses can be found easily on Disney stores.
For children that are just learning to write letters, the iPad presents a great opportunity. Obviously, tracing a letter with your finger isn't the same experience as drawing it with a pen or pencil, but it can be an important first step to helping your children on the way to becoming great writers.
Ace Writer gives your child a chance to learn. It demonstrates how they can draw letters with their finger by tracing the lines for them in the correct order, then encourages them to give it a go.
Quite often the best apps are the ones that do one thing, and do it well, and Ace Writer Alphabet is a perfect example of this. In fact, we found that Jacob, who is only now being introduced to letters at pre-school, was quite happy to use this app on his own, following along the letter without any prompting.
The problem of autistic kids and adults doesn’t need to be ignored. They are part of our society, and exclusion is a miserable solution. We can help them integrate into our society. Apple Inc. treats this problem very seriously and helps those kids with some interesting applications that can be downloaded from the Apple Store website. By giving them HELPFUL APPLICATIONS, APPLE gives persons with autism the opportunity to overcome their disabilities.
