The greatest iPhone games of 2008

I can count more than 25 iPhone games that are better than some Nintendo DS and PSP games that sell for 20 or 30 bucks! Here's what's playing on my iPhone.

The greatest iPhone games of 2008

Alternate Endings: This is more of a video "Choose Your Own Adventure" than anything else, good for a quick bus trip. But it is a nice throwback to the days when full-motion video games were considered cutting-edge. Ah, Night Trap, I miss you.

Adventure: The classic Atari 2600 game, on your iPhone. It's a little twitchy, but hey, it's free.

Blackbeard's Assault: Match cannonball colors and keep them from hitting the X. If you've ever played Zuma, you'll feel right at home.

Booty Blocks: What is it about pirate puzzle games? Flick booty around the screen with your fingers.

Word Warp: Here's a quick little vocabulary game, kind of like what you'd see in the newspaper--if you still read newspapers.

Enigmo: In this brain bender you use objects to angle water drops and solve puzzles.

Aurora Feint--The Beginning: It's an online role-playing puzzle game! If you're a fan of Puzzle Quest, you'll get hooked on Aurora Feint. Consider yourself warned.

Is that all? No, there are plenty more games where those came from!

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
