      Hover tanks?

      Tanks that hover? And use jump pads? That's just made up stuff! How about some real world games like a typing tutor. These so-called "game developers" are reaching too far into the world of the phantastik. Unbelievable.

      Developers failure

      I don't know why, with the processing power and memory of most iPods and iPhones, developers can't include print capability in their apps. The iCover app would be something I'd buy except for this omission. I know it can be done - just look at HP's " iPrint". If you have to mail it to yourself and then print from your desktop, why bother with an iPod / iPhone app? Yeah, yeah, excuses, excuses. Half-done, poorly executed apps!
