Leaked Samsung Memo Reveals ‘Beat Apple’ Was Company’s Top Priority

AvS.Samsung.2012Sometimes, it feels good when the side you are rooting for gets some recognition, not that Apple doesn’t get the lion’s share of attention in the media. But for the past few years, it seems like much of the tech reporting public considers the iPad maker to be on its way out. Discovering that its biggest competitor considers Apple to be an “extremely real” threat puts a little pride in my heart.

This Week’s App Store Editor’s Choice: Monument Valley

Monument Valley 2There are a lot of good-looking games in the App Store now that the newest iOS devices run on a 64-bit processor. However, “good-looking” usually refers to graphics, which I think is fantastic, but hyper-realistic racing games don’t have to rule the good-looking category. Sometimes, games that are artistic, abstract, and surreal are just as pretty, if not more.

Monument Valley is a game that looks so good it could be your iPad’s Home screen background image. In fact, the game’s developers thought so too and added a feature that lets you take a picture of the screen to save in your photo library.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Pulls in $74 million in 2013 Compensation

lucrative-revenue-sharing1Have you ever wondered what the CEO of a major corporation makes? Well, if you just look at there salaries, it’s not that much. Who am I kidding, more than one million dollars is definitely not the average income. My point is that, in addition to CEO salary, the big wigs oftentimes get compensation in other ways, increasing their year’s income significantly. Apple CEO Tim Cook, for example, made about $4.3 million in salary and bonuses. However, his cash cow came in when he was the recipient of a portion of the restricted stock grant he received in 2011 to the tune of $69.9 million.

XTouch Technology Could Make Any iPad Activity Hands-Free

tapFrogsPlayI’ve mentioned before in my review of cooking apps that include hands-free actions how much I love the feature. I use my iPad to cook and bake a lot. I always get ingredients on the screen when I have to scroll up or down or from one page to another. So, any app that makes it possible to perform an action without actually touching the screen is a big plus for me. XTouch is a new technology that makes it possible for you to tap a flat surface near your iPad or iPhone to activate a control. No more sticky cookie dough on the Home button.

Kodak Moments HD 2It’s funny how the world works. It was less than a decade ago that digital photography picked up speed to become the prominent way of taking pictures.

Kodak Alaris has just launched their first iPad app to include the ability to order photo books, high-quality prints, and custom enlargements for same-day pick up at a local Kodak retailer.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Street Flapper Pays Homage to Both Street Fighter and Flappy Bird

Street Flapper 3

When is the line drawn in the sand to show that a trend has gone over the top? Cat memes went over the line when poor helpless felines were being “breaded.” I don’t even know what “twerking” is and don’t want to find out. What about the Flappy Bird phenomenon? Since its demise, the strangely popular casual game has spawned hundreds of knockoff titles from Flappy Duck to Bouncy Pig. About 98 percent of them show no creativity or innovation and are simply a waste of space in the App Store.

However, some app makers have used the popularity of Flappy Bird to create something interesting, even if it is merely a clone of the original.
