Canabalt's Run-Jump-Go Splat Format Massively Addicting

What it is: 'Canabalt' is a simple game, available both as a free Flash game and as a $2.99 download for the iPhone. The premise is basic; you play a tiny man, fleeing what appears to be an alien invasion, leaping from rooftop to rooftop, dodging obstacles, and smashing through windows. What we like: This game is as pared down as it gets. There is only one button: jump. There is no 3-D...

Presidential Cabinet Members Must Leave BlackBerrys at the Door

After being rudely interrupted during a press conference earlier this year, we can't blame President Barack Obama for taking a harsh stance on cell phones.

But what has us chuckling is the method in place to ensure Secretary of State...

'Personal Trainer: Walking' Bringing Pedometers to Nintendo DSi

Our best buds over at Joystiq sat down with David Young, the assistant PR manager for Nintendo of America, in order to talk shop and get a glimpse into the DSi's future. Of note, Mr. Young...

'SmartBerry' Brings Portable Chat to Girls

We're guessing the naming scheme here was quite intentional, though we'll be the first to say Bandai's Smart Berry has very, very little in common with RIM's stockpile of handsets. Nevertheless, this "mobile communicator" joins the small crowd of other tween-centric chat handhelds with wireless capabilities that enable four of these things to talk to one another "for email, chat and online games...
