Drync touts itself as 'the Shazam for wine'

When you are listening to a song that you don't know, but really like, it's common to whip out the ol' iPhone, launch Shazam and find out the name of the tune.

Corkbin updated, lets you buy wine right from the app

Corkbin is probably my favorite app on the App Store that I don't actually use that much. I've wanted to learn more about wine for a long time. Corkbin, which lets you track and rate the wines you drink, seems like a great way to do that. Unfortunately, whenever I end up at the bar or restauran...

GDC 2010: Fallen Earth comes to the Mac, brings an iPhone app

Fallen Earth is a respectable postapocalyptic MMO -- I've never played it (one MMO is enough for me, and the gigantic World of Warcraft is still claiming my time), but it's grown pretty popular since release in September of last year. And now the game is set to pick up another chunk of audience, as...

Darwine 1.0

Firefox 3 was a pretty historic release this week, but I'd say that Wine 1.0 might actually beat it -- the open source non-emulator (Wine, after all, Is Not an Emulator) for Windows finally reached their first stable release.
