Last May, I spent a bit of time pontificating on whether or not Steam belongs on a mobile platform. Regardless of my opinions on the subject (too lazy to read the article? The short version is “maybe, but they need to be careful”), Valve has just taken its first big step into the world of smartphones with the release of Steam Mobile for both iPhone and Android.

The increasing power and proliferation of smartphones has given us an increasing amount of ways of connecting with each other. However, all of these new communication venues have also given us an increasing amount of contact information to keep track of. Android users already know how Xobni’s app Smartr Contacts can help simplify that process and now iPhone owners can too.
Smartr Contacts pulls data from various sources in order to create a master contacts list. Whether someone is a Facebook friend or a LinkedIn connection they will be accounted for. Smartr Contacts then puts

that person’s email, phone number, picture and whatever else it can intelligently detect in one handy place. The app keeps track of recent communications one has had with their contacts and will even rank contacts in order of importance. Think of it as a way of knowing who one’s real friends are.
While the app works with other existing social networks like Twitter, in order to use Smartr Contacts one must sign up for a Xobni account. Smartr Contacts is available for free on the App Store.

Last November I had the pleasure of first reviewing the Beauty and the Beast: Storybook Deluxe. I praised it for being the kind of high-quality app that you would expect from Disney and for giving us a way to celebrate the enchanting and engaging story of how Beauty finds true love in the Beast.
The recent update to this wonderful app has added a new dimension with animations direct from the film and a series of special effects that will amaze you.

The same great features exist, with activities, coloring pages and puzzles that serve to supplement the storyline and give your chi

ld the chance to learn a few things while spending time with their favorite Disney characters.
I think I still love the ability to sing along to songs from the movie best, because my daughter just loves music. But the eleven added animations really served to further supplement the story in a way that will bring the book to life almost like a mini-version of the film itself –only with this version, your child can participate!

What I liked: Animations from the film will be familiar for many children which will help them to relate to the story and increase their interest and investment in the app itself.
What I didn’t like: For those of us who have already been enjoying this app on a regular basis, it would be nice to have a quick-link to the new features so we can share them more directly with our child.
To buy or not to buy: If you weren’t persuaded to grab this app before there are even fewer reasons to resist now. In addition to the quality app that they began with, this update demonstrates their commitment to continued quality and further enhancements which should give you confidence in their products.

Jailbreaking Is Not A Crime ? The Electronic Frontier Foundation has started a petition at jailbreakingisnotacrime.org to ensure jailbreaking is kept legal.
Back in July of 2010 the Copyright Office added an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) which made jailbreaking your smartphone legal. The exemption is set to expire after three years and the EFF is trying to make sure that doesn’t happen.

The petition at jailbreakingisnotacrime.org will let you add your support to a letter written by Bunnie Huang, author of Hacking the Xbox. The EFF would also lik

It offers additional Siri functions and allow developers to write plugins to hook into the Extension tweak which is exactly what Lingual will do.

Before Lingual will function, users will need to have AssistantExtensions installed as a pre-requisite. Developed by CodeThemed, the Lingual plugin will then be activated using the standard Siri methods. Users can say “translate [phrase] to [language]” or “what is [phrase] in [language]” and Siri is going to respond instantly with the required translation. If the plugin works effectively, it is going to be very fruitful.

Lingual is now available in Cydia, and requires a pre-installation of AssistantExtensions which is free of charge.

It turns out that the end of the world won't come courtesy of an asteroid after all. By all accounts, it’ll be a slow, drawn-out affair related to the fact that there are no expensive things left to burn.
