Quick App: Boxhead - The Zombie Wars for iPhone

Sean Cooper Games and MEDL Mobile have created a highly addicting gem of a game, Boxhead: The Zombie Wars. [$.99 for the next two days - iTunes Link] Playing this game makes me feel like I've died and gone to zombie heaven.

Boxhead: The Zombie Wars is a extremely fast paced action-shooter where you get to play as Jon Bambo, a mercenary with a kick butt arsenal of weaponry which includes - pistol, shotgun, C4 explosives, minigun, turret machine guns, etc...

Developers Turn, Return, and Reaffirm -- iPhone Still Unmatched

Tim Cook (in)famously said other platforms and devices are still struggling to catch up with the original 2007 iPhone 2G, and while TiPb wouldn't go that far (the App Store didn't show up until the iPhone 3G in 2008), strictly in terms of user experience and functionality, he may have had a point.

More on Apple's New iPhone/iPod/iTunes/Apple TV Remote

More on Apple's New iPhone/iPod/iTunes/Apple TV Remote

As part of their massive, yet strangely casual, new product drop this morning, Apple also introduced a new version of the Apple Remote [$19 - Apple Store link], which when combined with an RF-enabled Universal Dock, can control your iPhone or iPod (as well as iTunes on Mac or an Apple TV sans-dock). Add in the A/V out cables, and the remote also lets your iPhone or iPod function as a mini, highly portable Apple TV all its own, showing your content on the big screen, controllable with the touch of a button.

Or three buttons now, as the new aluminum and black Apple Remote, which replaces the ancient white plastic one, not only matches Apple's new design aesthetic, but takes the play/pause button out from the center of the 4 way, and puts it on its own, on the side next to the menu button.

Not sure how we feel about this new arrangement yet. It's a little more scattered than Apple's usual (and older) elegance. However, we'll reserve judgement until we get our geeky little mits on it!

Apple's info, after the break!

COOh-Snap: Apple Competitors Still Trying to Catchup to Original 2007 iPhone 2G

COOh-Snap: Apple Competitors Still Trying to Catchup to Original 2007 iPhone 2G

During Apple's Q4 2009 financial results conference call today, when asked about competitive smartphone platforms and devices, Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook responded:

Frankly, they are really just trying to catch up with the 1st iPhone that was announced 2 years ago

While many will no doubt argue -- perhaps laugh outright -- at that, it's harder to laugh at Apple's results: 7.2 million more iPhones sold in the last 3 months, and half-a-billion more App Store downloads during the same period.

So was Cook just showing his swagger, setting himself up for a big takedown, or comfortably settling into a combined iPhone/iTunes/App Store offering his thinks will be tough to beat in the consumer market?
