Rockstar makes iPhone debut with Beaterator

Rockstar's music game gets the 'app' treatment

With the company's wares not performing up to expectations on the DS and PSP, it should come as no surprise that Rockstar is now looking to Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch as potential new gaming platforms. The company announced via their newswire that its first official game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, the Timbaland-headlined music-creation title Beaterator, has released today for $4.99.

At 1/8th the price of the recently-released PSP iteration, Beaterator for the iPhone and iPod Touch obviously won't be a straight port of the version that appeared on Sony's platform. In the release announcement, Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser said "The entire application has been revamped to provide an extremely accessible and innovative experience for iPhone and iPod touch owners."

Rockstar has also promised an iPhone/iPod Touch version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, which was originally slated for a fall release. As for Beaterator, you can find it right now for $4.99 (iTunes link).

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
