Developer Thomas Pleasance has put together a simple install package that does its magic and sure enough, once installed, your Media Center box appears on your iOS device as AirPlay capable.

iCade iPad arcade cabinet gets reviewed [video]

iCade iPad arcade cabinet gets reviewed [video]

We told you that it was coming and now the guys at touch Arcade have got their hands on one to test. The iCade arcade cabinet is an accessory for your iPad; which turns it into a retro arcade machine complete with joystick, six buttons and a glowing coin slot.

The review is very positive right from the build quality down to the actual game play. The iCade is designed predominately for use with Atari’s recent Greatest Hits app and it wasn’t found wanting!

I found tearing through these classic games on the iCade to be everything I'd hoped it to be. On the whole, it's just an awesome experience. Holding the stick in your hand, hearing the switches click open and shut, and mashing the fire buttons is absolutely the way these classic games were meant to be played. A proper stick in your hand beats a virtual D-pad every time.

The device is designed for gaming in portrait mode. If any game needs to be in landscape you do have to take the iPad out of the iCade. It does have a place to sit externally so it is still usable in this way. There is also an API on the way to allow other game developers to use the iCade; developer Manomio has already confirmed support will be coming for its C64 emulator app. Getting other developers onboard is critical for this accessory to really succeed.

The iCade is still available for pre-order at a price of $99. Shipping is currently quoted as June 9th. Take a look at the video after the break. Are any of our readers planning on picking one of these up? Let us know in the comments!

US App Store: 500,000 apps later

US App Store: 500,000 apps later

According to 148apps, the US App Store has unofficially seen over 500,000 apps line its shelves since it debuted in June 2008. Only 400,000 or so remain live on the App Store today, for a variety of reasons, but that's still an incredible number.

Let’s get geeky and take a look at some numbers. From that nearly three years of data we know that you’d need a 7.5 terabyte iPhone to hold all of the apps available at once on your device. I guess we have a new high end target for the storage limit of the iPhone 5. Oh, and it would cost you $891,982.24 to buy all of the apps.

Check out their amazing, and amazingly big, infographic after the break!

Steve Jobs to Keynote WWDC 2011... or not? [updated]

According to GigaOm, Apple has confirmed Steve Jobs will be giving the Keynote presentation at WWDC 2011, despite being on limited duty during his third medical leave. For the last 3 years, Apple has introduced new iPhone hardware (from the iPhone 3G to last year's iPhone 4 at WWDC, however, unofficial word is that there'll be no new iPhone until the fall this year. Since, also unlike previous years, there was no iOS preview event this spring, an iOS 5 announcement and probable beta release will likely be our high point. (There will no doubt also be Mac OS X Lion news as well.)

Possible picture of the iPhone 5 rear panel?

Hot on the heels of the obligatory iPhone 5 case leak, we now have a supposed picture of the back panel of the next iPhone with the same LED Flash placement on the opposite corner. The image is obviously unverified budoug does match up with both the recent case leak and some supposed next generation camera parts.

Daily Tip: How to unfriend someone on Facebook

You know who they are -- the person you kinda sorta know, acquaintance of an acquaintance type of thing -- and they keep inviting you to events in other countries, adding you to groups you couldn't care any less about, and spamming your wall with their virus links, and you're just dying to know how to unfriend them.

Well, rest easy. It's not rude. It's not anti-social. It's not you -- it's them. They're unfriendable. And it's Facebook, with their "invite all", "add to group", and other easy-to-abuse buttons. You're not breaking any covenants that ought not be broken. You're simply restoring your Facebook sanity. And we're going to help you... after the break.

Installer 4.0 jailbreak app store returns to the scene, compatible with iOS 4.3.x [Jailbreak]

Installer 4.0 jailbreak app store returns to the scene, compatible with iOS 4.3.x [Jailbreak]

Installer 4.0 is now available in Cydia and is compatible with iOS 4.3.x firmware and below. Installer was the first jailbreak app store, back before Apple even announced the official App Store, but disappeared when RipDev stopped developing it. Cydia quickly came along to fill the gap, but now the Infini-Dev team has brought it back.

Yesterday we had success "porting" Installer to 4.3.3 and below. Installer works with a different system than Cydia, thats why you won’t be able to add a Cydia repo into installer. As we speak we are working on a new community source for installer only, which means you will be able to install things via installer.
