Extreme Sports have been very popular in the last 20+ years. It has always been a challenge for these sports enthusiasts to visually document their amazing accomplishments. Digital cameras have allowed many in the past 10 years or so to strap on a handheld camera to their helmet or carry as they performed their daredevil stunts. These cameras are bulky and prone to all sorts of problems. Within the last 2 years, we have seen some interesting advances in portable HD camera designs. The two cameras I will compare are specifically designed for the extreme sports enthusiast to strap on and record their achievements in 1080p HD video.
At 9:15 am this morning, I had the privilege of interviewing Colleen Lerro from the Consumer Electronics Association over the telephone. For those not familiar with the CEA, CEA produces the annual CES (Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas). If you have never been to the Consumer Electronics Show, you have to make a trek at least once to experience this grand showcase in person of thousands of new consumer products.
It’s time to “get your gore on” with Minigore, the latest survival shooter published by Chillingo. The game play is frantic, the visuals are stunning, and the music is incredible. Plus, it feels like a cross between Tim Burton and Tom & Jerry. What more could you ask for?
Ever think that sheep were tougher than zombies? Ever care to find out? Well, whether it’s ever crossed your mind or not, Radiolaris is prepared to give you an answer with their latest iPhone offering, Zombies Vs. Sheep. I would suggest that this is one question you seek out the answer to.
It sounds like an application that might have missed out on Apple’s rating system, but in actuality it’s a fun take on the “break some bricks” genre of game. Colorful graphics and an upbeat soundtrack will captivate you while the quick, solid game play keeps you coming back for more.
Get ready to don your Hazmat suit and try to escape from a nuclear power plant. Fission Quest has you trekking through 30 levels of barrels, crates, pits and perils trying to find the exit to each level. Can you out-think the diabolically laid out plant?
How do you stand out in a crowded genre for the iPhone like shooting games? If you’re Codename Lone Wolf, you start with a bunch of diverse scenarios. Then you toss in a pretty original interface and some decent graphics. Good background music doesn’t hurt, either. Read on to find out if the sniper business is in your future…
Jezzball has a new look in the form of Jezster from Birdsoft. An adventure mode, power-ups and the ability to play the game in the original Jezzball style make Jezster a nice update to the classic. I still don’t really have an appetite for this style of game, but Jezster has brought me a lot closer to craving it.
Platform games aren’t as prevalent on the iPhone as one might expect for a mobile platform, so it’s always nice to get ahold of a new one. I was intrigued by Upsi Runner’s claim of hearkening back to the days of classics like Donkey Kong, but the ultimate result of this retro platform game left me a little bit wanting.

Wassup! Today – Lately, it is becoming a nightmare trying to keep track of all the products starting with the letter “i”. To be introduced to another Apple product starting with a small “i” followed by a Capital letter is fine since Apple starrted this trend with the original iMac. Since other companies started following suite, it seems every time I look for new and innovative mobile products online, I come across another “iSomething”. If this keeps up, we will soon need a dictionary just for the letter “i”.
