Plants vs. Zombies 2 was announced not long ago, and we got to spend some time playing it here at E3. You'll find a lot of the same strategy game elements as the original, but there's a ton of added depth on multiple fronts.

That plant food can be used to temporarily super-charge an individual plant - perfect for those tense moments when your well-laid plans crumble before your eyes.

FaceTime audio has been jokingly referred to since its WWDC 2013 introduction by some, as the phone. While this may be amusing to some, the wider picture is something potentially more important. In adding audio only calling to FaceTime, Apple has created their own Skype. And, with it, opened up VoIP to the masses.
OS X Mavericks is the first OS X build to be named for something other than a big cat (Apple has run out of feline names, so they're switching to place names). it takes its name from a popular big wave surfing spot in northern California, not too far away from Apple's headquarters in Cupertino.
