The Future is Your Friend: Welcome to Apple’s iOS 7

The changing of the guard for Apple nation is hard to miss. The annual rite of the new iPhone is a harvest feast of social jubilation, hand-wringing, and eye-rolling for those not among the faithful.

This year the keening of the iMasses is louder than ever, with the most sweeping update to the iPhone’s operating system since the original  ground-breaking iPhone was introduced in 2007.

Biff Bam Pop’s Holiday Gift Guide: iPhone 5

What can be said about the iPhone 5 when one is upgrading from a first generation Motorola Razr? Yeah. That’s right. Up until October of this year, yours truly was stuck in the dark ages, contacting friends and family via a device, not five years old, in a form of communication akin to Morse code, telegrams or…smoke signals.

Taking photographs? Yeah, the Razr did that. Grainy, washed out pictures frustratingly tucked away in some labyrinthine subfolder that took numerous pushes of a button to find. Texting? Yeah, it did that too. Push three times for the letter “c” and all that. Predictive text, here, is a boon only if you’re looking to communicate comedy gold. When I caught my two-year-old Goddaughter frustratingly pushing the Motorola “M” symbol on the flip cover in hopes of having the “home” screen light up in front of her, I knew it was time to upgrade. Never mind her insistent (and disappointing) swiping across the miniature screen.

“Hello Moto”? More like “Goodbye and good riddance”! This is a gift guide column dedicated to the brilliance of the iPhone 5. Bigger, better, faster.

Mat Langford’s Gaming World – Final Fantasy Dimensions

There hasn’t really been a game in the last few years that truly recaptures that magic of the old-school Final Fantasy games. Sure, some have tried, but lackluster attempts and even progressive titles from Squeenix have fallen short, leaving FF gamers with a certain emptiness.

While Final Fantasy Dimensions on iOS – Sqaure Enix’s latest entry into the FF series – is a throwback to the old games, is it truly capable of bringing back the true feel of the games of yore? Find out after the jump.

Mat Langford’s Gaming World – Zombie HQ

I’ve always been a fan of anything zombie related, especially zombie games like Left for Dead and Resident Evil. Surviving the zombie apocalypse with nothing but a baseball bat or a hand gun always seems so awesome, and I love immersing myself into those worlds.

Zombie HQ for the iOS is another game that had my interest piqued when our editor told me about it, and I had to try it out to see for myself.

Your home base, where you find missions, buy things, etc.

Your home base, where you find missions, buy things, etc.

The game’s premise (or lack there of) is simple. You’re a survivor of a zombie outbreak, and you’re currently living on a rooftop in the middle of a city that has been overrun by zombies. The main goal is to survive, while building your home base into a fortress.

Mat Langford’s Gaming World – Like your games quick and fun? Try Ski Safari!

As you all know, I’m a fan of pick-up-and-go iPhone games. Games that I can turn on, play for a few minutes, and then turn off, just to pass the time… I find them incredibly addictive. I was a huge fan of Jetpack Joyride, I loved its physics, easy controls and simple interface.
