Samsung’s Latest Commercial Pokes Fun at iPad’s Size

Samsung Tab S Commercial

I’m always disappointed when I see a commercial from a tech company putting down Apple products in an attempt to make their own seem better. In my opinion, if your product is good, it doesn’t need to be compared to anyone else’s. It will rise to the top on its own.

Samsung’s newest Apple bashing is just another ridiculous attempt to make its tablet seem better without going into any detail about what makes the Tab S special.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Retro ‘Tower Boxing’ Pays Homage to Rampage

Tower Boxing 1

One of my favorite arcade titles is Rampage from Midway Games. I played it regularly as a kid. Sweaty palms, bruised thumbs, and a belly full of soda pop got me through many an hour of mindless building bashing. Nothing can beat it.

Tower Boxing pays homage to the punching monster game of my youth with a similar Rampage-esque adventure. Players destroy buildings by punching them out, level by level, while trying to avoid being crushed by outcropping platforms.

FlightDeck Turns Almost Any Vehicle Into A Smart Car

FlightDeck 1

Earlier this year, Apple officially announced CarPlay, which is an accessory that will be added to new cars that allows drivers to have access to a variety of iOS features, like phone calls, maps, and music. It is pretty awesome. However, not everyone is in the market for a brand new car. I’d love to be able to make a phone call in my 2001 Saab, but that can’t happen because Apple wasn’t even making iPhones that long ago.

Or can it?

Apple Officially Announces Sept. 9 Media Event

Sept. 9 Media Event

Well, it is finally official. Word is coming down from a variety of tech news sites that Apple has sent invitations for a media event on Sept. 9. The elegant, white invitation, which looks more like a wedding announcement than a media event, simply reads, “9.9.2014 Wish we could say more.” The event will take place at Cupertino’s Flint Center at 10:00 a.m. PT.

Of course, Apple wouldn’t reveal what they will unveil at the media event. However, the tech news world has been pretty good about leaking all manner of possibilities this time around.

BioShock for iPad Hits the App Store Today

Rescued Little Sisters

It looks like a lot of people will be taking a “personal” day from work today. 2K Games just launched BioShock on iOS today. As promised earlier this month, the award-winning first-person shooter has been ported for mobile devices. That is, mobile devices that can handle the work. The game is only available on the fourth-generation iPad, iPad Air, and second-generation iPad mini, as well as the iPhone 5 or newer.

BioShock plunges players deep into the underwater utopia of Rapture, where a failed experiment in creating the perfect existence has produced deranged residents dead-set on survival at any cost.

PadGadget’s Sound Stage: Gumdrops 32-Step Sequencer

Gumdrops 1

When I think about drum apps, what comes to mind is a virtual drum kit with toms, stare, kick, and cymbals. Users tap out a rhythm using multiple fingers, hoping to create a flowing beat. But, that’s not how drumming works. You need arms and legs and the ability to keep one beat going while changing up another.

Gumdrops is a beat sequencer that doesn’t pretend to be a real drum kit. Instead, it uses the same idea that goes into physical drumming to allow non-musicians to create beats that are more natural and realistic, or as the name says, “Beats so sweet, you’re bound to get ill.”
