Halo sort of released for iPhone and iPad

Two different Halo games have been released by Microsoft to the iOS device ecosystem this week. The first is Halo: Spartan Assault, a top-down action battle sort of game - the other is... another game with nearly the same title and almost identical gameplay. That'll be Halo: Spartan Strike. Both games include 30 levels of gameplay and have the same price point. Note - if you will - that these aren't the same sort of game that you'll be playing in first person on your Xbox One - they're a completely different sort of Halo.

Google Handwriting Input app revealed

A new keyboard has been revealed by Google for Android - one that's not really a keyboard at all. This app is the "Google Handwriting Input" interface, and with it, you'll be able to write to your heart's content.

We've seen Windows 10 for desktops and larger tablets as well as some sneak peeks at the version for smartphones. So it's about high time that we hear something about the middle ground of the two: small tablets, which Microsoft defines as tablets with screens smaller than 8 inches.

Fortunately, Microsoft still has time.

Griffin Cove wants to give devices a home inside your home

Acclaimed mobile device accessory make Griffin has a new product in the works, but it is going about things quite differently this time. The Cove is more than just a charging dock. It is also meant to masquerade as a stylish piece of furniture inside your (presumably stylish) house. It is, so to speak, a home for your myriad mobile devices in your house. But more than just that, Griffin is taking a different spin in actually making the product, preferring to go first to its customers instead of straight into the manufacturing plant.
