What's on Georgia's iPhone right now!

If everyone else is sharing what's on their iPhones then you know I want to get in on the fun! The iPhone is the single most important, most critical piece of tech I own. It's what keeps me on time, keeps me connected, and keeps me having fun! Since my Home screen is pretty much default — I'm lazy! — I'm including some of my favorite apps from my second screen as well. And yes, I still don't update applications very often. I don't like change. I don't like learning new interfaces and I don't like that I can't go back to a older version of an app if anything goes wrong. And, hey, this is my iPhone!

Isometric takes gaming podcasts to the next level

Weekly photo contest: Transit!

Odds are you've been on a train, plane, bus, or some other kind of transit before. For many of us, it's a daily part of how we get from point A to point B. Transit systems and the people that use them can make for amazing photographs as well. So your task this week is to grab an amazing shot with the subject being some kind of public transit. Perhaps it's an interesting person you met on the subway, or a dark tunnel with a train emerging. The choice is yours, just be sure you submit your best work!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, June 24th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winners of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

Writing to the Metal (API)

Metal — throw the horns! — is iOS's new low-overhead, high-performance API for writing to the Apple A7 graphics processing unit (GPU). But given Apple's other graphical tools, from SpriteKit to SceneKit, where does Metal fit in, and what does it mean for developers and for the future of apps and games?
