Apple not involved in Rockstar's decision to sue Google

It appears that Apple may not have had much to do with Rockstar's decision to sue Google over patents relating to search. Many expressed disappointment in the companies bankrolling Rockstar, which include Apple, Microsoft, and BlackBerry, that they would use their patents in this manner.

Indistinguishable from evil

I like to riff on Arthur C. Clarke by saying any company, sufficiently large, is indistinguishable from evil. I've used it before when Google failed to respect copyrights, trademarks, and, through their Motorola subsidiary engaged in a horrendous violation of the very spirit of standards-essential patents. And I'm using it again now to describe the actions of the Rockstar consortium - the entity that purchased Nortel and Novell patents, bankrolled by Apple, Microsoft, BlackBerry, and others. They've now sued Google over search-related patents, which is an attack against the heart of Google's business, and it smacks of patent trolling, which is a fairly revolting practice.

Grand Theft Auto 3 gets updated for the iPhone 5 display and iCloud game saves

Grand Theft Auto 3 for iOS just got a nice little update that brings proper widescreen support now for the iPhone 5, iCloud game saves and custom music playlists. For such a major title, it's a little disappointing it's taken so long for it to support the 4-inch display on the iPhone 5, but better late, than never.

Original Max Payne game now available on iPhone and iPad

Everybody's favorite time-slowing vigilante, Max Payne, is now available on iPhone and iPad. Sure, the game originally launched on consoles and PC is a little old, but Max Payne Mobile comes complete with all of the dual pistol-wielding bullet-time action we know and love. There's support for the new iPad's Retina display, and compatibility with every iPhone going back to the 3GS. The gameplay itself looks pretty much identical, including the third-person perspective and comic-style cutscenes, but there's an added bonus for configurable controls, so you can drag and drop your fire button wherever is most comfortable. Max Payne for iOS will also tie in with Rockstar's Social Club community for sharing profiles and achievements.
