Apple iPad Donkey Kong Desktop Coin-Op

The Apple iPad isn't even out yet and there are some seriously awesome apps being discussed. NetFlix is one I'm really looking forward to. But then a friend told me about this one today... the iCade which has "hundreds" of old arcade games such as Donkey Kong, DigDug, Qbert, and more. Too bad it was just an April Fool's joke.

While you're waiting for the iPad to come out next month, or the multi-tasking iPhone 4.0 OS to come out this summer, why not drop a Jackson and pimp out your fridge?

In this past Sunday's newspaper we got a free coupon for a small Caramel or Mocha McDonald's Frappe. So on Monday when I had to make a FedEx drop-off or my latest episode of Motorz, I decided to give it a try. I'm a huge fan of the beverage it directly copies, the Starbucks Frappuccino. I give props to McDonalds for the nuggets to so closely rip off Starbucks on ...

Through one of my projects, Appmodo, I learned about a fairly new online service that allows you to design and then launch your own App for the App Store.
