The long-rumored news comes from The Verge: is closing as of Feb 2. I didn’t like all of what they did there, but there was a solid group of writers and people that I will miss reading. AOL is shutting down The Unofficial Apple Weblog, better…

Today we’re unwrapping the best holiday gift we could’ve imagined: the first real build of our self-driving vehicle prototype.  

The vehicle we unveiled in May ( was an early mockup—it didn’t even have real headlights! Since then, we’ve been working on different prototypes-of-prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car—for example, the typical “car” parts like steering and braking, as well as the “self-driving” parts like the computer and sensors. We’ve now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle—our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.

We’re going to be spending the holidays zipping around our test track, and we hope to see you on the streets of Northern California in the new year.  Our safety drivers will continue to oversee the vehicle for a while longer, using temporary manual controls as needed while we continue to test and learn.  Happy holidays!

Just in time for the holidays!  iPad support! #rpg   #tabletopgames  
Helix Dice version 2.2 - Introducing iPad Support!
What's New in Version 2.2
Both our Android and iOS versions have received minor bug fixes (there were a couple of small rendering inconsistencies between the platforms), a more efficient ad engine (so Helix Dice loads quicker and responds faster) and finally version 2.2 brings native support for the iPad!…

Helix Dice 2.1 for Android is now available for download in the Google Play Store! 

Percentile roles (just roll two ten sided dice to see the percentage)
Crit and Fumble indicators when rolling a single D20
Select any combination of dice to roll (up to 99 per die)
All individual die results are shown beneath the total

The Spellbook
You asked and we listened. One of our most requested features! Now you can save your five most used dice combinations for easy rolling and you can roll them right from the Spellbook!

Need to track your Hit points or buffs? Maybe you're playing an awesome board game and want to track everyone's points. Values are persistent between restarts so there is no fear of losing your stats if you must leave a game and return at a later time

Not many just yet, but you can toggle Power Saving Mode to keep your phone from sleeping while you roll!
