About a month ago, I was visiting my brother and his family. My six-year-old nephew grabbed me by the arm and dragged me to the computer saying, “I have to make you a Penguin.” That was my first introduction to Disney’s hugely popular massively multiplayer online (MMO) game for kids. Since then, it seems like the game is everywhere. Interestingly, Club Penguin has been around since 2005.

When The Room first came out, I tested it for a review and fell in love with it immediately. I had plans to play the game for about an hour and then watch a movie. However, after about 15 minutes, I was so hooked on the game that the rest of my evening was dedicated to finishing the puzzle.

Today, the newest bird flinging adventure has driven into the App Store. Angry Birds Go! will make you race.
I love Spotify. I listen to new music all of the time from my desktop or laptop computer. However, I don’t listen to it on my iPad. At least, I hadn’t in the past. That is going to change today. According to the company’s blog, mobile Spotify is now available for free on tablet devices. Sort of.
When you buy your iPhone from a carrier, or even directly from Apple, you are getting a huge break on the cost. The full price of an iPhone is more like $600 – $900. That means a 16GB iPhone 5s would cost you at least $400 more than the subsidized price through a carrier. Carriers pay the additional costs of phones in order to entice consumers into signing a two-year contract. AT&T doesn’t want to do that anymore.
Welcome back to our weekly column about DIY projects for the iPad. We are fans of making things from scratch. Whether it is a handmade bookshelf or a home cooked meal, doing it yourself shows that you care.
