iPhone 4 prices cut at Target and Radio Shack

Target and Radio Shack are dropping their prices on the iPhone 4. A lot of retailers typically do this to clear out inventory in anticipation for a new iPhone. We've seen it happen every year thus far.

If you're in the market for a new iPhone and don't care about waiting for the iPhone 5, you can get an iPhone 4 at Target for $149 (16 GB) and $249 (32 GB). Radio Shack also has a promotion this week cutting the prices to $169 and $269. If you trade in an existing iPhone, you can get an additional $100 off at Radio Shack.

As always, these prices will require you to sign a new 2-year agreement. I'd personally hold out for the iPhone 5 but if you aren't willing to shell out over $200 for a new phone, this may be the deal for you.

Get in touch with algebra with Algebra Touch for iPhone, iPad

Algebra Touch, by Regular Berry, is an iPhone an di

Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch refreshes your skills using techniques only possible on your iOS device.

  • Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.
  • Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.
  • Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms.
  • Distribute by sliding terms across the sum, and Factor them back out by dragging them together.
  • Easily switch between lessons and randomly-generated practice problems.
  • Create your own problems or edit current ones.
  • Current material covers: Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, Order of Operations, Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, Isolation, Variables, Basic Equations, Distribution, Factoring Out, Substitution, and 'More Advanced' mode.

As a math educator, this app makes me very excited. One of the challenges of teaching algebra is finding effective teaching techniques geared towards visual learners. Algebra Touch is not only a great visual tool, but a very physical and hands-on one.

Algebra Touch is available on the iPhone and iPad for $2.99. Screenshots after the break.

The difference between Apple iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet commercials

Samsung's new Galaxy Tab 10.1 commercials, airing in the UK, are focused on being Faster (HSPA+ networking), Thinner, and Lighter.

Apple's fist iPad 2 commercial, aired back on April 2, had a different focus.

This is what we believe. Technology alone is not enough. Faster, thinner, lighter, those are all good things. But when technology gets out of your way, everything becomes more delightful, even magical. That's when you leap forward. That's when you end up with something... like this.

Hey, at least they weren't selling Tegra 2 processors.
