The weekend is over and a new workweek has begun. At least there are a whole lot of new apps and games to keep us occupied while we pretend to be working. Each week Apple gives an award to an app or game (sometimes both) that is considered particularly special for one reason or another. Last week, Apple gave the spotlight to the sequel to the sci-fi themed version of the most popular game in the App Store, Star Wars Angry Birds 2. May the Pork be With You.
We used our PadGadget Apps Tracker to find these great deals and we’ll continue to look for the best app deals as they pop-up. Some of these apps are up to 97% off so be sure to check them out because they are on sale for a limited time.

Every once in a while a product comes along that is worth noticing not because it’s a great deal or because it does something that no one else is doing, but because it is both creative and impactful. That is exactly what I thought when I read about Concrete Mode, a company that is in the business of repurposing used cement bags into something new.
A friend of mine once said that if mobile devices on airplanes were really dangerous then terrorists would simply fly around with their phones on. As it turns out they aren’t as dangerous as perviously thought and the FAA is reportedly close to lifting some of the in flight restrictions.
A source close to the situation told the Associated Press that a 28 member FAA advisory committee has voted for change. While the committee has no official authority to change policy, they are influential and their recommendation is likely to make a difference.
While it is possible to assume that Apple will launch a gold colored tablet this fall, it didn’t seem likely since we hadn’t seen any leaked images to make us believe it was true. Until today. According to Chinese language Do News, the iPad mini will be available in Gold. Plus, the oh-so-popular and much talked about Sonny Dickson claims to know that the smaller sized tablet will come in silver, gold, and Space Gray.
Considering the fact that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is the second largest school district in the nation and what some would call a “taste maker” for future programs, it appears that district-wide implementation of iPads might be dead in the water if LAUSD does not do something to cure its security ailments. Yesterday, we told you about 300 students in the District who essentially hacked their iPads to gain access to unauthorized websites. The L.A. Times recently reported that the District also “misplaced” 71 Apple tablets.
I just dropped my iPad on the ground and shattered two glass corners. What to do?does one call Apple to come and pick it up or do I take it?

On Wednesday afternoon, probably after a shopping trip to pick up antique buttons and pumpkin carving tools, Martha Stewart dropped her iPad out of her car and shattered the glass display in two corners. Unfortunately for her, Stewart tweeted her woes with an open request to Apple to come over and fix it.
Welcome back to another edition of Flashback Friday. Each week, we look for old school games that have been ported to iOS to help you relive your childhood all over again. Last week, we told you about the simple office themed casual game Glider Classic. The water cooler has never been so action-packed.
We’ve been following the Los Angeles Unified School District’s (LAUSD) iPad program since we first heard that the second largest district in the nation was planning on giving an iPad to every one of its 600,000 students. After only a few weeks in action, the District is restricting iPad use due to unauthorized access to websites by more than 300 students.
