Unreal development kit coming to iOS

Unreal development kit (UDK) is coming to iOS according to an announcement made by Epic Games at the Korean Games Conference.

What this means is that any iOS developer can download the free UDK and potentially start making worlds as breathtaking as Epic Citadel for iPhone and iPad.

Amazon: Kindle better for unitaskers in bikinis

Amazon's new Kindle ad says a) it's easier to read an ebook on in direct sunlight, b) it's smaller and lighter, and c) it's way less expensive than Apple's iPad.

(This is the second Amazon Kindle ad to feature a lady in the sun; interesting demo they're targeting.)
