Falling asleep with a good iBook

Gather 'round, kids and Grandpa Dave will tell you a story. Back when I was your age, "iBooks" were computers, not software. They were brightly colored, had plastic handles and resembled a Barbie purse. Plus, you could take a nap beneath one, as Flickr user Pinot Dita demonstrates. You can...

YouTube find: 10,000 iPhone "dominoes"

This clever animation from Atama Studio was produced to illustrate the potential of NFC on the iPhone 5. You'll notice that, as each CG iPhone falls, it triggers the image on the phone next to it.
