After loads of leaked information and a series of Rube Goldberg inspired teaser videos, the time has finally come for Sony to announce its Android tablet duo: the Sony Tablet S and Tablet P.

We’ve been hearing about a potential Facebook music service since at least May and, according to reports, it may be announced in just a few weeks at the f8 developer conference in San Francisco on September 22. Word of Facebook partnering with Spotify came back in May, but at that point all we knew was […]
With the growing popularity of the tablet I hear more people say that the PC is dead or dying, but I care to disagree. If anything the PC is expanding its reach in different guises. Many people still want a big monitor at home, but without the big, noisy PC box that accompanies it, so […]
Just released by Secret Headquarters, Inc is Maze+, one of the first 3D multiplayer maze games for the iPhone and iPad. Race through several different mazes and earn gems so you can move up and win special items.
This universal app will have you racing your original character, Kolo Jones against other people all around the world. As you win, place your gems in the “coinizer” and earn coins to unlock more characters, levels and items. There are lots of different characters you can earn and new items to win are added every month.
Maze+ provides a practice mode, which is untimed so you can refine your skills. Once you are ready, head out into the real game and play against live people through the app’s Game Center integration.
To prevent boredom in Maze+, the mazes are randomly generated each time you play. This assures you will never get the same game twice.

If you think about it, it’s strange that we keep to-be-transplanted human hearts in the same thing that we keep our Coronas in when we head to the beach. There must be a better way than sticking the heart on ice and flying it to its recipient. This method has been used for the past […]
You’ve traveled through arcade games on foot, with hooks, and with rocket packs strapped to your back, but have you ever thought of using flatulence? Well, now you can with Space Fart, a quirky arcade game that has you guiding Toot, a little purple alien, through space and back home to his friends and family.
To get Toot back home you must help him jump safely from spinning planet to spinning planet. Small markers and bonus stars will help you align your path, and then just tap once on the screen to cause Toot to blast off.
If Toot gets a little off course, you can tap once again on the screen to increase the gravitational pull of the planet and yank him right back towards the surface. However, doing so will cause you to use up one Space Bean, which you have a limited supply of, so use them wisely. You can gain additional Space Beans by jumping towards them between planets.
Space Fart includes regular and infinite modes, a quick tutorial, and Game Center integration.

NodeBeat ($1.99) by AffinityBlue puts experimental music creation at your fingertips.
Move nodes on to the screen to play your song. Generator nodes will govern the note nodes. There is an octave and beat generator, each of which will play any note within proximity of them. Eight notes are available in a progression of pitch.
Getting started is as simple as dragging a generator on to the screen, followed by notes. The results are instant and pleasing. A color gradient background changes color as the song plays.
You can control the audio functions, such as waveform, attack, and decay. The rhythm can also be modified to fit the beats-per-minute you want.
Of course, what’s the point of making all this music if you can’t export it? A record button will capture your song and you can either send it to iTunes or email it as an .m4r file.
One issue I find is the lack of a home screen. Call me crazy, but I get antsy when I can’t find my way back home. A conditional looping option might be a nice addition as well, so that you can make your song more elaborate than the same thing played over and over.
Overall, this is a great app. Experienced musicians and laypeople alike can enjoy their music within seconds.
