Google has launched a new software update for their free Gmail app for Apple’s iPhone and iPad. This update brings deeper integration with Google cloud services like Google Drive, allowing users to view, share and attach files within email messages. In addition to Google Drive on Gmail, users will also be able to upload files to the cloud right from within the mobile app, avoiding the need to multitask between applications.

Revolution 60 tasks you with regaining control of an orbital weapons platform. And the latest from Konami is called Swords & Poker Adventures. It’s a mix of poker and weapons.
Just Mobile, of course, knows a thing or two about stylus input for touchscreen devices; their classic AluPen is one of the most popular ever made. But that doesn’t mean they’re about just rest on their laurels. And so we have the Just Mobile AluPen Twist, a dual-purpose stylus for touchscreens and paper.
I’m not sure the world really needs a 5.25mm thick iPad mini. It would be interesting technologically, but he current mini seems comfortably small, light, and thin enough for me.

When we first reviewed VocaLive back in 2011, it was billed as vocal processor. IK MultiMedia has now redefined the app, and it’s a worth a re-evaluation. VocaLive 2 now comes with a multitrack studio complete with digital audio workstation features such as timeline audio editing, waveform visualization, touch-and-drag looping, and more.

Earbuds are many things: wireless, sweat proof, noise isolating, stylish, and custom fitted. But they aren’t all these things at once, forcing you to choose different earbuds for different situations. OwnPhones, which recently launched on Kickstarter, aims to change that by giving you a pair of custom fitted, personalized Bluetooth earbuds that are built to match your ear and your style.
If you’re looking for a portable speaker that comes at a fair price, be sure to check out the iHome iBN27 bluetooth stereo speaker. I couldn’t ask for better sound quality at this price point; the bass and treble combine for good sound quality in a compact system that’s designed for portability.

Last week, Tim Cook told the Wall Street Journal that he does 80% of his computing work as Apple CEO on his iPad, and he thinks you should too, maintaining “There’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t be like that.” But it’s that last 20% that’s the sticking point, preventing the iPad from displacing a laptop or desktop PC as a completely satisfactory general work platform.
