Daily iPhone App: Sword of Fargoal is great, goes free

Sword of Fargoal is an older title from the App Store — it was introduced quite a while back as a graphical roguelike RPG, in that you run around a randomly generated dungeon while collecting gold and beating down anything in your way. The game actually started back in the early ’80s, but came to the iPhone early on, and has since been updated a lot in terms of graphics, gameplay elements and just general stability. At this point, it’s a really well-polished, well-traveled action RPG game. And right now, it’s absolutely free, so you should grab it for your iPhone for sure…

Two days after Sunday’s riot at the Chinese Foxconn Technologies factory, the home of the Apple iPhone 5 assembly line was back up and running today. But with police reportedly monitoring street corners and the factory’s main entrance, Foxconn still looks like a powder keg with a sizzling fuse.
The causes of the riot are buried beneath layers of spin. Foxconn claims the unrest was not work related, but the labor group Chinese Labor Watch claim that Foxconn security guards beating up workers precipitated Sunday’s events…

Steve Wozniak, aka Woz, was in Sydney Australia when he noted that, while Apple’s Maps were “disappointing,” he felt the problem has been blown out of proportion. Of course, Sydney happens to have flyover support, whereas London does not.

It should also be noted that Woz carries more than one phone with him at a time, so if Apple fails him his Android devices pick up the slack, which seems to be exactly what happened when he tried to get somewhere and Maps on his iPhone 5 failed.Woz: Apple Maps flaws ‘not that severe’ originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Tue, 25 Sep 2012 13:00:00 EST…
