Prepare to annihilate your targets in Hitman Go for iOS

Square Enix has launched Hitman Go on iOS, a puzzle-based mobile game from the popular Hitman series of video games. It's unlike other titles in the franchise as Agent 47 is limited to movement via a grid and there's more emphasis on puzzle solving, rather than adventure and action.

Yahoo really really wants to be the default search engine for iPhones and iPads

Fire up Safari on your iPhone or iPad today and you'll most likely find Google as the default search engine — but if Yahoo has their way that might change. Users have the option to change from Google to other search providers such as Bing or Yahoo, but Google's had the default spot locked down for some time thanks to the handsome sum they've been paying Apple for the privilege.
