Mondays may be manic, but they don’t have to be boring. We are here to help. Every week, we let you know about apps that Apple thinks are the bee’s knees. The Editor’s Choice award is coveted because the app is prominently displayed on the front of the home page of the App Store. You can’t get any more free publicity then that. Last week, Apple spotlighted the sequel to the most popular zombie-based tower defense game ever. Plants vs. Zombies 2 is twice the fun with twice the zombies.

When it comes to education I am very opinionated, yet I am also conflicted as to the direction for the future of education. Certainly it should come as no surprise that computers are at the center of education and educators have embraced Apple since its earliest days, but is adding more and more technology helping our kids learn the skills they need? Reading through Apple’s redesigned educational site provided some interesting insight today and I think it is worth a look.
Apple has recommitted itself to being a part of education and is spotlighting the role that the iPad can play in the classroom. While I understand that this is a marketing campaign, the site is also a comprehensive look at the role of technology in the teaching and learning process.
Apple’s litigation laundry is being aired this week. In addition to the earlier report regarding Samsung’s attempt to throw out the bounce-back patent in the damages case with the iPad maker, today, the Department of Justice (DoJ) is accusing Apple of changing their policy on in-app purchases in retaliation against Amazon on 2011.
In a surprise move this morning, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that he is retiring within the next 12 months. This comes at a time when the company is transforming to a “devices and services company.” As Ballmer exits and the new CEO takes the throne, some wonder what this means for Apple.
The Samsung and Apple soap opera continues. This time, we are going back to an old fight that should have already been put to rest. Last year, US District Court Judge Lucy Koh ruled that Samsung had infringed on Apple’s patents. One particular patent in question, the so-called “bounce-back” patent 381, has been the subject of much contention. Samsung maintains that it never has and never will infringe on the bounce-back patent and wants it removed from the suit.
Friday is finally here and it is time to put our feet up and relax while we take in the joys and comforts of the weekend. Before we turn off our alarm clocks and computer screens, we like to flashback on Fridays to games of yesteryear, when pixels were few and far between and adventures scrolled sideways. Last week, we told you about the 1980s RPG Amiga game Defender of the Crown.
This week, we have a hands-on review of a game that was not created decades ago, but it reminds me of building blocks from my childhood, which is why Blocksworld HD is getting a nod for this week’s Flashback Friday.

In December of 2011, the media industry was calling the Kindle Fire the “iPad Killer.” It was being lauded for its Android-based operating system and its remarkably inexpensive price tag. Two years and hundreds of new tablets later, not only has the Kindle Fire dropped to third place in the market, but Apple’s iPad is actually picking up steam again.
