Capcom is holding another sale this weekend, for no real reason as far as I can see, other than that it's the weekend, yay! Eight games going cheap at just $0.99/£0.59 each. Probably the best of the lot, if you don't already have it, is Resident Evil 4, which takes a big price drop from its usual $4.99, so definitely a bargain. Classic action-platformer Mega Man II is another bargain, dropping to $0.99 from $2.99, while there are also a couple of other ''gather the family around the iPhone" quizztastic treats on offer in the shape of Are You Smarter Than A 5TH Grader? 2010, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2010. Here's the list in full, courtesy of the official Capcom blog, complete with direct links to each game:
LSRotator is a useful tweak to those who find it useful, by that I mean it is not for everyone. If you enjoy having your device one step closer to a fully landscape iDevice, you can snatch this tweak in Cydia for $.99. If not, wait until Apple or someone on Cydia releases a full, landscape orientation, tweak for the iDevice.
So today, Sn0wbreeze 2.0 came out. I know I said there would be a video out on it but I decided against it. The whole process it takes to Jailbreak your device is just not worth it. SHAtter Exploit Jailbreak should be coming soon and will be much easier to do. Please, stay where you are with your devices now, do not update, attempt it if you know what you are doing.

Apple Insider contacted Google, asking if they have any word on the official Google Voice app. The Google spokesperson replied:
We currently offer Google Voice mobile apps for Blackberry and Android, and we offer an HTML5 web app for the iPhone, a Google spokesperson said. We have nothing further to announce at this time.
In the past few days we have seen Apple approve Google Voice apps into the App Store and a change in their guidelines. It is true that we have a web app for it, but now that they can be approved, lets see what Google's next step will be.
If you saw the video on FoldersInFolders, this may catch your eye here. FolderEnhancer is basically that, but a little tweaked up. You can see how it works in the video above, but basically it adds a lot of functionality to your folders, all in one. Some of the things you can do with this tweak; more than 12 icons in a folder, put folders inside folders, and many more.
Remember the days when we could only have 148 apps, haha. All these tweaks in Cydia are basically allowing our devices to have as many apps as we want. Hopefully our 16 and 32 GB models can keep up.
Ever since I've gotten my iPad and my beautiful iPhone 4, the first App I downloaded as soon as it was available was Netflix. Recently, this has become one of my most used apps in my daily life. I've been able to watch so many shows instantly; Family Guy, South Park, Lost, The Office, etc.
There is just a ton of shows in the watch instantly category that is compatible with iDevices and Computers. This means you can bring your iDevice to a friends house, or at a family meeting, sit back and watch some shows that will cost you at least $8.99 a month. Now that is not too much to ask after iTunes is asking $.99 TV rentals. These shows will be there forever as long as you have your subscription.
Monthly services aren't my thing, but not only do you have this variety of shows, you also have a movie section to pick from, and 1 DVD/Bluray (or however many you choose) sent you in the mail at a time! Seems like a deal to me for whoever loves movies and TV.
Wow, Jailbreaking is getting dangerous, that is if you don't have common sense or your not checking the site on the official Jailbreak. This site claims that they have the SHAtter Exploit, used by the Chronic Dev Team, and that you can Jailbreak your 4.X device. All this site will do is steal your passwords and probably leave you unhappy.
This is a message to everyone so that you stay away from fake sites. If you like Jailbreaking, unlocking, etc. I would never update before there is an official Jailbreak out for that firmware. Stay away from scam sites and Apple updates until there is official word.
You gotta love the folks at Bolt Creative and all the Pocket God sillyness they get up to! While other companies just get on with releasing the updates to their popular games, Bolt Creative makes, literally, a song and dance about it! The latest Pocket God video, "The Pocket God Update Song", written and performed by Jonathan Mann (he of the iPhone 4 antenna song), pays homage to the massive number of requests from fans for the next Pocket God update, which is still nowhere to be seen.
However, along with the video, Bolt Creative has also released some fresh snippets of information about the forthcoming update number 34, Monkey See Monkey Chew, which sticks to the theme of the Ape trilogy, and adds monkeys to the island mix, arming them with an arsenal of bananas to chuck at the hapless islanders. Monkeys can also toss Pygmies around like beach balls and throw them over cliffs. A new skin called Dance Pack Too will also be available to download for $0.99, enabling Pygmies to learn how to break dance, perform the Running Man, or even try out some sweet ballet moves.
You can download Pocket God here for $0.99/£0.59.
Gameloft has released a new teaser trailer to celebrate the launch of the sequel to Gangstar: West Coast Hustle on Friday 23rd September for iPhone/iPod touch. Essentially it's more of the same GTA-influenced open-world mayhem, but it still looks like a whole of explosive, anarchic fun. Players will find themselves thrown headfirst into Miami gang life as they attempt to rescue their little brother who has been kidnapped by the Armada gang.
Experience an incredible reconstruction of a huge city, with an open-ended environment that recreates Miami, from Downtown to The Harbor, Miami Bay and The Swamps, as you undertake more than 75 varied missions, which call for gang infiltration, taking out enemies with sniper rifles, witness escort duty, car chases and much more.
Gangstar: Miami Vindication has been fully optimised to make the most of the iPhone 4 and new iPod touch's Retina display, complete with HD graphics. Other enhancements include improved AI, with the Miami PD now able to react even quicker to your misdemeanours, and even call in FBI reinforcements when necessary, making your life that much harder! However, as a way of balancing things out, your character will have lots of awesome new vehicles to drive, some of which you can see in the trailer, ranging from bog-standard cars and motorcycles to boats, jet skis and helicopters.
Anyone who knows the perils of trying to keep toddler fingers off their iPhone will be very happy to see this ingenious little plush toy from Griffin and Iceberg Kids, as featured in the Vancouver Sun. The strange green fluffy thing is called the Woogie, and is designed to enable your kids to play with your iPhone or iPod touch without damaging it in any way. The Woogie is half stuffed plush toy, and half protective case for your iPhone/iPod touch, which is kept snug and safe inside a protective pocket with a Velcro fastener. The touch-through screen enables you to choose movies, apps or music for your child to play with.
The Woogie has a built-in speaker powered by two included AAA batteries, and the toy's six arms can be tucked underneath it so that it can be viewed easily or propped up in a child's lap. Griffin says that it is suitable for children from three years upwards.
You can get your Woogie here for $19.99 (currently only shipping within the US though, unfortunately), and download the free Woogie Sesame Street Sampler App here.
