Can't believe I have to wait almost two more months.

I'm pretty addicted to Dark Souls 2 these days, and while I wouldn't call it a Retro game, it does have a little bit of that Retro level of difficulty.  So how do you go Retro on the iPad?  Easy.

There are some features in iOS 8 that are going to really help take it to the next level.  The next round of iPads will approach the low end MacBook in terms of processing power, so adding features like extensibility is huges.
Apple's iOS 8 update for the iPad and iPhone looks to take a giant step towards the functionality of a PC with features like centralized document sharing and the ability for apps to run snippets of code within other apps.

It's sad how downhill the NFL Network has gone over the last few years.  It used to be my favorite station.  I remember switching from Time Warner Cable to FIOS because TWC dropped it.   Now it is laughably bad.

I realize there's not much news between the Draft and Training Camp, but how many days in a row do we need to talk about Manziel going to Las Vegas.   A guy went out and had fun on his time off.  So what?  They've spent more time on Manziel in Vegas than an NFL owner getting busted for drugs.  

The saddest part is the NFL is missing a HUGE opportunity during this so-called dead area.   There are hundreds of new players hoping to get a job.  America loves reality TV.  Combine those two concepts: teach fans about their new players --  ALL of them.  The 7th rounders.  The UFAs.  Get them to root for these players and preseason becomes a lot more fun.

The sad part is when the NFL Network does highlights on preseason games, they basically ignore the second half when these guys play.  Instead, they should be focusing more on that half.  With the popularity of fantasy football, there are tons of fans that would watch it just to find a hidden gem late in their FF draft.

C'mon, NFL.  Get it together.

I just turned on auto-upload photos in Dropbox on my iPhone.  574 more to go!

Media outlets that report on every single iPad rumor rarely seem to actually read what they are writing about.  New rumors that the next iPad will be announced in June and released in... October? Seriously?   

I think not.

If you like card battle games like Magic the Gathering, you should definitely check out Hearthstone.
After a partial release in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, Heartstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now available worldwide on the iPad. Hearthstone leverages

There are a number of ways to cut the cost and get a cheap iPad, such as buying refurbished or going for a used unit. Tips for the best deals

Sherlock season three was very disappointing.  Not that it wasn't good.  It was awesome.  But on Netflix, it showed 6 episodes.  After the 3rd episode's cliffhanger, my wife and I were salivating for episode 4... but the last three "episodes" were just the "Making of..." each of the first three episodes...

So now what am I supposed to do?  Wait a year to find out what happens!  I'M ALREADY WAITING A YEAR TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS ON GAME OF THRONES!  UG!

Ohhh that's right. Never actually liked his character in this series, though the actor is pretty good.

Infinity Blade II is a great download while it is free.  If you don't have much space, you can download it and then delete it until you are ready to play it.  You will always be able to download it again for free as it will be registered as 'purchased'.

I'm not as familiar with Pocket Scanner, but I can say that Scanner Pro gets a lot of use on my iPhone.  I grabbed it on a free day.  If you want to scan documents with your iPhone/iPad, grabe Pocket Scanner and check it out.
Smartphones have been around for quite some time but truth be told, they weren't terribly smart until the advent of on-device app stores. Apps had existed before, of course, but finding them and in...

One reason for the iPad's stagnant sales is that it hasn't established a true upgrade cycle yet.  The iPad Mini ran on the same processor as the iPad 2, which means developers were coding for the 3 year old iPad 2.  In the next couple of years, we'll see a true upgrade cycle start for the iPad, which will help boost sales.   
With rumors that sales have stagnated, there's a lot of doom and gloom surrounding the iPad in the media these days. USA Today thinks the iPad is in big
