Turn Your iPhone Into An RC Remote With The iPhly

It works the same on an iPod touch too. Called the iPhly and created by an RC enthusiast app developer, the iPhly is an app/gadget system that works like a universal remote for RC airplanes. Once the app is purchased from iTunes, attach the iPhone on a specially molded dock that transmits the control signals to the aircraft. Apparently it can also be used for RC trucks.

Which means they probably know the storm of speculation their recent  filing for a trademark for “computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones” is going to start.

Either Xperia Play Or PS1 Games Not Selling Very Well

The only scrap of information we have to go on here is the number of downloads PS1 games are clocking up on the Android Market, which apparently barely break the “low hundreds”. And while that can easily be blamed on the wide variety of other devices nostalgics can and indeed do buy PS1 games on, we’re still a bit skeptical, mostly because we’ve had a look around Dungeon Defenders Second Wave ourselves and  couldn’t find someone to get one solitary game of Xperia-exclusive PvP going with.

A Graphic For All The Internet Trolls Out There

Ah trolls. Pestilential creatures who lurk in the comments sections of various blogs as well as different internet fora. We recently unearthed this ancient graphic from the ruins of a lost city depicting the vile creature in all their malformed ugliness.
