Today, iOS 4.2 Beta 1 was released to developers to get their apps ready. 4.2 brings in some new features that have been long awaited for on our iDevices. Some of the main features in the new iOS include wireless printing, which will allow you to print documents and photos straight from your device to your printer all with just a few taps. You will be able to search text on web pages as well, which will make it easier for you to find that one part on a long page. Finally, AirPlay, which will allow you to stream your music and video from your device to your speakers or Apple TV. These features all look interesting, a few smaller things were changed like the rotation lock switch on the iPad is now a silent switch to just the iPhone family. We'll see these when iOS 4.2...

Namco Networks has launched its sequel to Time Crisis on iOS devices today with Time Crisis 2nd Strike. As with the first classic arcade on-rails FPS, it's all about how fast you can reload and how accurately you can shoot. In the action-packed sequel, players take on the role of agent Giorgio Bruno in a race against the clock to stop multiple acts of terror. The new installment in the classic series comes with a choice between four standard-issue weapons, with the action played out across 10 stages connected by cinematic cut-scenes. At each stage, the player will also have the opportunity to earn unlockable achievements. There's also a competition mode, in which players can aim for the highest score or time. Here's what Namco's General Manager of Apple...

Once upon a time, Steve Jobs was departing from his family trip in Kyoto, Japan. Everything was going fine and rich for good ol' Steve until he got to security. Now, not only did high and mighty Jobs have to put his own stuff in the bins, but he also tried to bring ninja stars!

Steve supposedly acquired these shurikens on the trip and was taking them home, well at least he thought. Airport security supposed found ninja stars on him and did not let him go through. The story goes on how Steve talks about why he would steal his own plane, Steve would never visit Japan again, etc. According to an Apple spokesperson, who calls this story bullocks, Steve's anger, never happened.

As reported in the Orange County Register, Epson America today launched a new mobile printing app, called PrintJinni for Epson, that it says enables iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users to easily print Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and JPEG files from an email account to any Wi-Fi-enabled Epson all-in-one printer. It also receives and prints iWorks documents from the iPad, and includes a free upgrade to iPad-native printing support scheduled for release this fall, with the recently announced 4.2 for iPad.

In its press release announcing the app, Epson states that unlike other mobile printing solutions, PrintJinni for Epson is an all-inclusive productivity tool that lets you download, display, preview, and print email attachments that maintain...

Mobile Entertainment reports news today that will be music to Apple's ears, citing a recent survey from industry market research firm Newzoo's International Gamers Survey 2010, that finds that more than half of the 77 million mobile gamers in the US are playing their games on an iOS device. What makes this figure even more significant is the fact that it shows that iOS is now catching up fast with the Nintendo DS, which has 41 million gamers over the age of 10 in the US. No surprise either, that Sony's PSP is lagging way behind with 18 million users.

The survey also found that more DS and PSP gamers pay for their games than iOS device owners, with 67% of DS users and 66% of PSP gamers paying for their games, and 45% of iPhone and iPod touch users paying...

Despite "antenna-gate" having gone fairly quiet recently, Macworld reports today that consumer testing firm, Consumer Reports, has said that it is still unwilling to recommend the iPhone 4 to consumers. Consumer Reports says that its decision is a direct result of Apple's recent announcement that it would be ending the free bumper case scheme at the end of September, except for what it called "a small percentage" of iPhone 4 users who needed a case. Consumer Reports has just posted a blog about the free case issue, saying that "Apple provided no data to detail its...

If you've checked the iPhone Paid App charts recently you'll have noticed that a new contender has risen to the top of the charts to challenge the supremacy of Angry Birds. The game is called Slice It!, and although it's only been out for around a week, it seems to have struck a chord, with over 3000 five-star ratings! Slice It! is made by Com2uS, the developers of Homerun Battle 3D and the epic RPG Inotia series, and is a simple shape-dividing puzzle game, where you have to slice various shapes and figures as evenly as possible under given conditions, avoiding obstacles and using mirrors to help you slice all the shapes into perfectly equally sized pieces.

Slice It! features over 60 stages, with the...

Pocket Gamer reports today that LucasArts' iPhone/iPod touch Special Edition version of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, one of the greatest point-and-click adventure games of all time, is now available in the App Store for the knock-down price of £0.59/$0.99, which is actually quite a steal as the game was originally priced at £4.99/$7.99 when it was released back in July. Unfortunately for iPad owners, at present only the iPhone/iPod touch version is discounted, with the iPad version still selling for its original retail price of £5.99/$9.99. Only fair really though, as Pocket Gamer points out, the iPad version features higher resolution graphics and audio commentary tracks.

All those who want to snap up a classic game at a bargain price, click...

The GeoMetric from Speck, is a great iPhone 4 case that brings you into its own little 3D world. Looking at is normally from the front, it just looks like an ordinary case. Turn it around, and it literally looks like some sort of 3D map. It has a nice grip to it, almost perfectly fitting your hand on its backing. Really nice case for $29.95.

This is a cool looking case from Speck for the iPhone 4. The case seems as it would provide pretty decent protection from a low drop. You can grip the material the case is made out of pretty well and it won't stick to your pockets so you get easier access to your phone. Pretty average and decent case for just about $30
