A lot of time has passed since Google announced its next major iteration of the Android mobile OS in the form of Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) or Android 4.0 if you like to mention it in version numbering format. Afterwards since Google pushed the source code of the Android 4.0 out of the window developers from different Android handset vendors as well as members of the Android developer communities at the forums like XDA have been hard at work to port it to at least the most popular devices that are currently available. In Nov. last year we brought you a version of the Android 4.0 AOSP flavo

r to install on your Samsung Galaxy S which is still one of the most popular Android devices around despite its age. And it’s the one that started all the craze and is the predecessor of the insanely popular Samsung Galaxy SII that we all used to know and love. At that time the version of the Android 4.0 that we reported was still not stable and more importantly some features were missing namely – Bluetooth, GPS, camera and video recorder functionality. I recently noticed that Onecosmic’s ICS Port Android 4.0.3 RC3.1 for Samsung Galaxy is out. Since it a release code version, so its is extremely stable and feature complete version of the ICS ready to be deployed on your Samsung Galaxy S device!
One of of the best features is that its purely AOSP experience as Google implemented in Android – no layering of other branded TouchWiz and GUI elements on top. Here is a list of key features that have been reported to work fine in this build:
Hardware Acceleration RIL(Radio Interface Link = Calls / Texts / Data) Audio Touch Wi-Fi Both SD Cards (Internal & External) Android Market access Contacts sync Calendar sync Camera(Video Recording & Pictures) Panorama mode Face Unlock GPS Bluetooth Wired tethering FM Radio(Download Spirit FM from Android Market) Wireless tethering

As you can notice this is an almost final build and supports the Hardware acceleration on Samsung Galaxy S and other features such as Bluetooth, GPS and Camera are also working! You can download Android 4.0.3 port for Samsung Galaxy S from here. Flashing this firmware on your Samsung Galaxy S is very simple. Just boot in Recovery Mode and flash the attached firmware file linked above and then remember to wipe data / factory reset and Wipe cache and reboot the device to get it booted in the Android 4.0.3 ICS on your Galaxy S! If you are novice user and not sure about the CWM, recovery mode and flashing procedure on Android devices then please take a look at this excellent tutorial and everything will become very clear to you!
All credit goes to the talented developers at the XDA forums that made it possible. For more details, updates and user feedback please have a look at the original thread at XDA forums.
Here is a video showing Android 4.0.3 in action on a Samsung Galaxy S:

The Top Ten iPad Games for 2011 is a post from: My iPad Games
2011 has been a great year. This website was introduced to the internet in May and continued to rise in popularity until the end of the year. I also got to download a few games that were really really good, some of them got to get a chance to be reviewed here in My iPad Games, some did not get a slot in my busy busy schedule.
Here are the top ten games that were released in 2011 which I think are worthy of your attention if you have not downloaded them yet.
 
10. Zombie Cafe

If you are interested

on how it feels like to own a restaurant and command a horde of zombies at the same time, the Zombie Cafe might be just the right game for you. It features odious recipes to feed your unsuspecting patrons, and zombie employees to boot. Fun!

9.  Defen-G Astro

While the iOS is literally swimming with tower defense games, some of them are down right crappy. Defen-G Astro is a breath of fresh air because it incorporates tower defense with muliti-linear defense. The game is really easy at first but gets extremely frantic towards the end.

8. The Bard’s Tale

The Bard’s Tale is a port of the PC game of the game title. It is an action RPG which ironically makes fun of a lot of RPG elements in classic games. The game is filled with lots of funny cutscenes, action-packed quests and music videos. The game arguably has the best voice acting in all RPG’s in the iOS and combine that with the witty, funny dialogue makes the game feel like a fusion of a funny adventure comic book and video game.

7. Where’s My Water?

2011 was a great year for physics puzzlers and Where’s My Water? represents that. Here, you have to bring clean water to Swampy, an adorable alligator so he can shower. The game engages the player really well without being too easy or too hard.

6. Mage Gauntlet

Another action RPG in the list. Mage Gauntlet lets you control a hardy battle mage, Lexi, in search for a cure for her inability to cast magic without the aid of a mage gauntlet.
Retro games with pixellated visuals and chip-tune music are a fashion now on the iOS but only a few live up to expectations like Mage Gauntlet. The game is a frantic action at its best where you are forced to save up your limited supply of magic and rely on your trusty sword to obliterate the foes. The game is also humorous like The Bard’s Tale and you are guaranteed a laugh everytime Lexi opens her smart-ass mouth.

5. Muffin Knight

When casual arcade games become very frantic like this game, it becomes very special. I am torn between this game and its platforming brethren, League of Evil, but this one has a unicorn that poops rainbow-colored mines, so this one wins by a point.

4. World of Goo

This game was an adorable indie PC game with tons and tons of awards and praises from different gaming sites. Was. The game found it’s perfect platform for the iPad.
The premise of world of goo is to take these little balls of goop to a pipe some where in the screen by turning some of them into walls and towers. The game does not end there, though, later levels reveal other goo balls with different properties, so it opens up more creativity. Fuse that with the different weather terrains, gorgeous visual presentation and even more gorgeous soundtrack, World of Goo is one game that should be in your springboard, in case you missed it.

3. Shadow Era

Shadow era is a virtual trading card game, comparable to Magic: The Gathering (in terms of gameplay and artwork) where you can play with the computer AI or with a human via an internet connection. The game is multi-port meaning chances are, you are playing with a PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or Android user.
This game is freemium at its best — still playable if you want some good fun but purchases are needed if you really love the game and wanted to be competitive. This is the only freemium game that convinced me to cough out some dollars for the freemium services.

2. Box Cat

I just love casual games that is very easy to earn and play, but almost impossible to put down. Box Cat, an independent game is sort of an opposite of Frogger where instead of avoiding the vehicles you have to crash your character (a cat) into them. Don’t fret, though, because the cat is super invincible and is only affected by large truck when not dashing.

1. Tiny Heroes

And the #1 game that had me addicted is…. Tiny Heroes! The game is so beautifully executed, I am still playing it even though I have three starred all levels.
Basically, Tiny Heroes is a tower defense strategy game that focuses on replacing broken towers and mixing multi use and single use defenses. You play the role of the dungeon keeper here, where you would have to protect the dungeon’s treasure from greedy heroes.

Polarbit’s highly popular racing series is about to receive a new addition in Reckless Racing 2. Polarbit announced late last year that Reckless Racing 2 would launch exclusively on the Xperia Play before debuting in the Android Market and iOS App Store.
Up until now, however, Polarbit has remained quiet regarding an exact release date. According to Xperia Gamer, Polarbit plans to release ‘Reckless Racing 2′ on February 2, assuming everything continues according to plan.

The second entry into the Reckless Racing series was originally slated for a December 2011

Reckless Racing 2 will feature tons of dangerous tracks, a revitalized single player campaign and an unnamed mode that Polarbit has been able to keep under wraps.

Did you know that penguins spend up to 75% of their time underwater, looking for food in the ocean? Or, if Chillingo’s recent Greedy Penguins [99¢/Lite] is to be believed, they spend 85% of their time on ice floes, waiting for you to feed them, 10% of their time playing guitar and burping, and 5% of their time getting eaten by ravenous Orcas.
Greedy Penguins is a bird-centric physics puzzler (what a concept!) that revolves around you finding ways to get incredibly stressed-out fish in the mouths of the correspondingly-colored penguins. You tap the fish to drop it from its hook and get it
Read More
rolling, then through a combination of timing and obstacle-clearing, get it to the right-colored penguin. Once your penguin is successfully fed, he coughs up ice cream, which you tap to feed each level’s companion and get bonus points when completing the level, garnering a one, two, or three-fish rating.

The concept isn’t new, but the execution feels good. I found myself really enjoying this game, as much for the cute graphics and theme as for the well-designed puzzles. While the earlier puzzles seem easy (don’t they always?), once I really got going it became quite challenging to make sure I got the fish moving in order to clear obstacles. I found myself failing some levels multiple times. Since each level is short, I didn’t mind too much, but it did remind me of how bad my timing is (I still get night terrors regarding the Cave of Wonders level from Aladdin for the Sega Genesis).
Another challenge, though one not personally experienced, is that the colors chosen for each penguin and their food make the game exceptionally trying for color blind people. As mentioned in the forum thread, those who can’t see colors will have a heck of a time getting through this game. If you’re persistent and don’t mind some trial-and-error, you might still enjoy it, but as a person who had enough trouble being able to clearly see everything, I would probably recommend skipping it until a color blind option is added.
The other thing that I personally didn’t like was the in-app purchase option. I’m generally of the conservative “in-app purchase?! Not in my paid app!” mindset (I am a bit of an old person, after all), and my thoughts on Greedy Penguins are no different. Simply beating every level in a world isn’t enough to unlock the next set of levels. In order to unlock the second and third igloos (worlds of 12 puzzles each), you need to have either collected thirty fish (out of only thirty-six) or pay 99¢.

The game also encourages you to waste time in levels by tapping the penguins and their companions to make them do “funny animations,” making it unlikely that you’ll get a perfect score of three fish on your first try. Crafty, no? I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like replaying levels of games just to gain points (or fish) in order to unlock content that I feel entitled to, having already purchased the app.
All things considered, Greedy Penguins is a well-crafted – though hardly groundbreaking – puzzle game. It's fun and extremely well-executed, with enough challenging puzzles to keep you occupied. If you've got a dollar or two burning a hole in your pocket, I'd definitely recommend giving it a spin, especially since it's Universal. If not, well, you can always get your penguin fix from this video!

With the launch of Apple’s textbook initiative for iBooks last week, the iPad is likely about to become the center of the world for many students, used for storing gigabytes of reading material, note taking, online lectures, media and, of course, the ubiquitous music and movies. But, it’s not just students that are going to be eating into the gigabyte allowance on their device.
The success of NewsStand on iOS has meant that many more publishers and periodicals are transferring their content to iPad and, as such, users are reaping the benefits of cheap subscriptions

to the iPad editions of their favorite magazine. However, with this amount of popularity, the storage space issue starts to rear its head.

If you are perhaps one of the many people who invested in a 16GB iPad then you’ll know what I mean. If a person subscribes to three photo heavy magazines each month, one of which is a weekly publication, then you will easily see over 1GB of data being delivered each month, meaning that you have to keep on top of reading and archiving your material. Equally, if you are a student and you download just one of the new enhanced textbooks for iBooks, you can be looking at between 1-3GB for each textbook. Suddenly, 16GB doesn’t seem all that much.
So, when will 32GB become the minimum usable size for an iPad user who doesn’t want to short-change themselves? With iCloud, or another streaming music service, you can always always save a bit of storage space by streaming your media. This will likely become the norm for some students who, on the other hand, can’t stream a textbook from iTunes.
Not yet at least.

The number of phones that Motorola sold decreased from last year as the company lost $80 million on flat revenue, citing an increasingly competitive market.
