How cool is that?

And though there are flaws with Iron Man: Aerial Assault [iTunes link], it doesn't seem as bad when you only pay $.99 for it, down from a hefty $7.99.

- Brothers In Arms® Hour Of Heroes has been discounted from $9.99 to $5.99. That was good enough for me to buy. Using a virtual joystick is a bit tough for a first-person shooter but I'm slowly getting better.
- Burning Tires™ 3D Lite is a new racing game on the App Store. Not as realistic as Ferrari GT, but not as cartoony as Cro-Mag Rally. I also dislike accelerometer controls that you have you turn your iPhone like a steering wheel, but that's just me. Try it out for FREE!
- DanceDanceRevolution S Lite is the latest iPhone game from Konami. As a veteran of both Tap Tap Revenge and Saturday Night Fever: Dance! I can say that DDR S Lite is SUPER HARD! And in this free version there's only one stage. I still like a lot and it will be interesting to see the full version, which has not been released in the U.S. App Store.
- Action Bowling Free is one of, if not the most, realistic bowling game on the iPhone. While I love my Flick Bowling, Action Bowling has really great lifelike 3D motion on the pins and it would probably be easier to knock down splits. It also has an motion mode where you swing your iPhone like you're swinging a bowling ball. I use two hands so I won't actually throw the iPhone. There's also a flick mode which I prefer. In the free version you can only practice; the paid version is $2.99. I'll wait until the price drops back to $.99.

I know there is a paid version of iShoot Lite but I'm having so much fun with the free version that I don't feel like I need the upgrade.
It's the #1 free game in the App Store.

I'm one of them: a desktop PC user and an iPhone user. That's because I'm cheap. I build my own PCs from scratch at really cheap prices.
I'm usually never on the bleeding edge of technology. I even waited for the 3G version of the iPhone to come out. But, Windows 7 intrigued me. It's not only an upgrade but it's FASTER and BETTER. With the Vista debacle, I had to check this one out.
I installed Windows 7 in a different partition from Windows XP so I could keep both operating systems going at the same time. The one downside of doing that is that I don't have access to ANY of the programs in the C drive for XP. But, I figure that uninstalling Win7 will be much easier. My McAfee virus program was not compatible with Win7 so I had to install a trial version of Norton.
I chose a really cool desktop theme called "Landscapes." It shuffles around several desktop backgrounds and you can set how often you want it to change. The default was every 30 minutes but I chose for it to change every day. If you also notice in the picture above I chose a clear theme for the trim around the browser windows. Very cool.
So far, it is FAST. It seems even faster than XP. Although I don't have all the program running in the background as I do with XP. Still, it feels very stable. More to come...
