Posted on July 19th, by raymond padilla in iPhone, Mobile Tech, Today's Specials. 1 Comment

Ridiculous. Simply ridiculous. What else can you say about Apple’s Q3 2011 numbers? The company sold more than 20-million iPhones and nine-million iPads. The company posted $28.57-billion in revenue and $7.31-billion in profit. More than ever it’s hilarious to think that Apple once needed cash from Microsoft to stay in business.

Apple is making crazy money across a wide variety of products. From smartphones to tablets to notebook computers to desktop computers to software to music, Apple is kicking ass.


Katee Sackhoff Voicing Black Cat in Spider-Man: Edge of Time

Battlestar Galactica fans will remember Sackhoff as Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace. Males will notice that she’s a hottie.

Penagos also posted the first screen of Black Cat. The buxom cat burglar is Spider-Man’s sometimes nemesis and sometimes love interest.

While this post is partially an excuse to research photos of Katee Sackhoff, I’d love to hear what you think about her playing Black Cat in the next Spider-Mancontinued

Please check it out when you have a chance and let me know what you think of that guy from the Facebook movie playing Spider-Man.

The official iOS app for Google+ plus has been approved (finally) and is now available on Apple iTunes. According to the official description it’s, “Compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.” It’s strange that the the iPod Touch isn’t listed as a compatible device, though I’m sure it will work on it as well (bsukenyan, care to give it a try?). I’m going to try it on my iPad 2, but I’m sure the resolution will bother me.

Epic Games’ vice president Mark Rein recently spoke with Game Network about a wide variety of topics. The section on mobile gaming was particularly interesting. As I noted in December 2009, Unreal Engine 3 on iOS was a huge step for smartphone gaming. Since then, Epic and Chair Entertainment have had one of the biggest iOS hits ever with Infinity Blade.

iOS is certainly part of Epic’s future.
