More than three years ago, tech gadget company iRobot made a remote mobile stand for the iPad that could move around a room, making it possible for users to interact more realistically in teleconference type situations. At the time, the Ava (short for “avatar”) was little more than an idea and a prototype. Today, the company that created the Roomba is ready to ship their next big gadget.

Apple’s Senior Vice President of Design Johnathan Ive recently spoke with Time in a very rare in-depth interview. Last year, the name Jony Ive became synonymous with iOS 7 as the design chief headed the department that stripped iOS of its skeuomorphic theme and replaced it with the flatter, brighter design we see today. The Time interview features insight into Ive’s history with Apple, his passion for innovation, and just how important his role was in turning a dying company into a $665 billion powerhouse.
The Angry Birds franchise is probably the biggest game title since Mario Brothers.

The go-to news organization recently reported that young companies are done hoping for Microsoft to make its productivity apps for tablets and smartphones, so they are moving onto something they can use now. Apparently, the Office maker actually has a full version of the productivity suite in-house, but is waiting to launch it publicly.
Crazy Taxi is one of those games I played religiously in the late 1990s. I’d come home from work, turn on my Dreamcast and veg out for hours, picking up fares and collecting tips. The iOS version is a direct port of the original game with a few additional iOS treats. Today, Sega announced the upcoming launch of a brand new version of Crazy Taxi by the same guy that created the original game.
DigiTimes, the same tech blog that earlier reported Apple had already placed an order for 80 to 90 million iPad Pro units is now claiming that the company never made those orders, but has instead, “shelved its large-size tablet project.”
According to DigiTimes, brand vendors have pushed for larger sized tablets in recent months, but due to lack of support from platform developers and ecosystems, Apple has decided not to follow through with their original plans to launch a 12.9-inch iPad.
