THEN: All work and no play make Jason a sad boy. Here are five games that I'm thoroughly enjoying on the iPad 3's new Retina display. (Spoiler: Sky Gamblers, Mortal Combat 3, Real Racing 2 HD, Infinity Blade II and Flight Control Rocket)
NOW: Real Racing 3 for iOS has been delayed to "late February 2013" but add AC/DC Pinball and Catapult King to the list.
THEN: Apple can learn a lot from Samsung's latest hotness. Design matters and Apple needs to stop recycling the same tired iPhone form factor. Three years is simply too long. Although it has its flaws, the Samsung Galaxy SIII is the Android phone to have.
NOW: I still stand by my comment from last summer: Apple needs to update the iPhone hardware design every year to keep it current and it needs to pay closer attention to what users want and to what the competition is doing.
THEN: There's no denying the sex-appeal of iOS 6 new photo-realistic and interactive 3D Maps, but would you trade transit information and Street View data for it?
NOW: Almost everyone knew that Apple's new Maps app was a fiasco, but I don't think anyone knew the extent of its self-inflicted damage. A rare misstep for the most valuable company in the world and one that cost Scott Forstall his job.
