I hit the 13th Floor over the weekend, and I can sum up the experience with this: I came, I saw, I almost whizzed my drawers. I've trotted through miles of haunted houses over the years, but this one is by far the scariest, trippy-est, most off-the-chain that I've ever been to. I don't want to spoi ... More >>

There has been a bit of a gold rush on making apps ever since Apple launched the App Store and Microsoft and Android followed suit.

It's finds like this that make me glad I am a pathetic, house-bound loser who spends all his time surfing the Internet. The good folks at Amazon.com got into the MP3-selling business a while back.
