Every day dozens and dozens of new and updated apps and games hit the iOS and Mac App Stores. It's impossible to keep up with them all, but it's not impossible to pick out the very best.

Battery cases are great — they extend the usability of your iPhone for hours past what you get with the built in battery. But when the battery case runs out of juice, you're hosed, at least until you can charge it back up. Prong aims to fix that with the PWR case for iPhone 5 and 5s, coming this summer. It's available for pre-order for $65; when it goes on sale it'll cost $79.99.
Third Eye Crime just hit the App Store today, offering a refreshing mix of stealth and line-tracing puzzle gaming. Players have to guide a psychic detective/burglar through some particularly sticky situations. This involves drawing a path through a winding maze so that patrolling goons don't catch you on the way to the exit.
The back of this case is made of a thin polycarbonate that's completely transparent, so it's almost as if you don't even have a case around your iPhone. The edges are made of a slim rubber, making it easy to install and remove when necessary. Even the side buttons are raised for easy access!

For a very long time, since well before Cook took over as CEO, that's been Apple's policy. New products are ready when they're ready. And that's what Cook has reiterated in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Verizon's first quarter results are in, and mirroring rival AT&T, they saw some rather impressive growth. Verizon as a whole saw $30 billion in revenue, but even with their substantial non-cellular businesses, Verizon Wireless accounted for a whopping $20.9 billion of that income. That's an increase of nearly 7% from this quarter last year, though growth through their retail outlets was slightly lower.
