When I was a kid, I loved playing those quarter pushing games in arcades. There would sit, this huge pile of quarters with at least 40 of them resting precariously on the edge of the platform. I just knew I could get all of them to fall if my quarter would land just right before being pushed toward the pile, which it never did. The fun of coin dozer games can be relived in digital form with SEGA’s hit game Coin Dragon. For the first time ever, the game is now available on the iPad and iPhone.

Everyone knows that Amazon is leaps and bounds beyond any other company in the world for online sales. The Internet megastore doesn’t exist in the real world, yet is more convenient for most types of shopping than the store down the street. If you take Amazon out of the picture, Apple is the top seller of products and services online.
Over the past few years, and most especially within the last 12 months, Apple has been campaigning to educators around the world to implement an iPad program in their schools.

For three years now, J.D. Power has been conducting surveys regarding tablet owner satisfaction. For the first time in the three years, overall tablet satisfaction has declined. The main reason for disillusionment from consumers is attributed to ease of operation due to navigation features and functions changing from last year to this.
