Steve Jobs biography renamed to... Steve Jobs

Looks like everyone came to their senses and realized iSteve: The Book of Jobs was good only for the comedy bits it would inspire on The Daily Show, and so it's been changed to the far more dignified Steve Jobs.

The old one, iSteve: The Book of Jobs, was chosen by Simon & Schuster's publicity department. The author, Walter Isaacson, was never quite sure about it. His wife and daughter, however, were. They thought it was too cutesy. And now Isaacson has persuaded his publisher to go with something simpler and more elegant:

Steve Jobs By Walter Isaacson.

Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief

Bulletproof Outlaws has released their first game, Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief. In this fast paced game, you are a ninja who is being attacked and you must evade the dangers in order to survive.

  • Epic full-screen visuals
  • Behind-the-scenes Bonus Features for game developers and gamers who've thought about getting into the industry
  • Leaderboard support (both OpenFeint and Apple Game Center) so you can compete with the whole world or stick to one-upping your close group of friends
  • Achievements (OpenFeint and Apple Game Center) to give you some extra challenges to shoot for when you've got your skills rockin'
  • Super tight controls, and a difficulty curve that's challenging but not impossible - the AI gets smarter the longer you last but there are a few strategies to discover and master that'll help you survive the most chaotic situations!
  • An abundance of flashy art and explosions!

The graphics in this game look very smooth and the bright colors make for a fun environment. I also love that fact that the developer has included the behind scenes details of the development of the app. Very cool.

Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief is available for $1.99. Screenshots and video trailer after the break.

Bing for iPad gets updated, lasso search makes copy and paste a breeze

Bing for iPad has just received an update and added in a few new features. Bing is Microsoft’s alternative search engine) or decision engine as Microsoft likes to call it).

This new version introduces several user experience updates and a patented gesture based way to make searching easier with *lasso*. Simply lasso a word or phrase with your finger to do a search instead of copying and pasting into the search box. Search the way it was meant for the iPad.

I have never actually tried Bing myself but I would like to after seeing it in the video, which you can see after the break. Unfortunately Microsoft, for whatever crazy reason, hasn't made it available outside the United States!

Hacker group "Anonymous" hits Apple online survey server, publishes user data on 27 individuals

Anonymous, a well-known hacker group, is claiming to have broken into an Apple server and obtained usernames and passwords. The server in question appears to be the abs.apple.com server, which Apple utilizes for online surveys. Anonymous issued a tweet from its Twitter account on Sunday claiming Apple could be a potential target.

"Not being so serious, but well ... Apple could be target, too. But don't worry, we are busy elsewhere,..."

The usernames and passwords of 27 individuals were then published to the text-sharing site Pastebin. As of Monday, that specific server displayed an error message. Apple declined to comment when asked.

Verizon dropping iPhone 4 price to $150?

Verizon dropping iPhone 4 price to $150?

It appears VZBuzz has gotten their hands on some Verizon marketing material showing the iPhone 4 price dropping to $150.99. The screen also shows a plethora of Android and Blackberry price drops as well. I don't find it hard to believe this is legitimate as many carriers and retailers have been known to drop the price of the iPhone in anticipation of a new hardware announcement -- like iPhone 5 -- in order to clear out inventory.

Verizon currently offers refurbished iPhone 4's for $150, so could wesee a price drop in those as well?
