Apologies for missing last week’s iOS gaming roundup, but I’ve got a good reason: I was in Jordan judging Middle Eastern and North African mobile games for the International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA). It’s an organization that for fourteen years now has been hosting international competitions looking for the best mobile games.
I’ve been involved for several years now, and it’s awesome actually having game awards specifically for mobile instead of how things usually go — a quick mention on the tail end of other „real“ game awards that might vaguely acknowledge mobile. Submissions just started for this year’s IMGA’s, so [...]
For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with Mophie to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a USB-C Powerstation XXL that’s equipped with both USB-C and USB-A, so it can be used with a wide range of devices.

Apple today announced it has delayed the release of the HomePod until early 2018. The speaker was originally set to launch in December.
In a statement provided to CNBC and several other media outlets, Apple said it needs „a little more time“ before the HomePod is ready. We can’t wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple’s breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it’s ready for our customers. We’ll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018.
Apple unveiled the HomePod at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June. At the time, Apple said the speaker would launch in December [...]
