AppMonday: Pac-man 256

Endless runner games like “Temple Run” and “Flappy Bird” are certainly addictive, but what happens when you mix them with the old school retrolicious charm of 80s arcade gaming?

AppMonday: SongPop 2

There’s something about trivia that’s just tremendous fun, and if you happen to mix that with music, it works so well. “SongPop 2” takes those two things and makes them work on mobile, and after a week, we’re addicted.

Sony preps a 1TB PS4 with more space for more stuff

WD offers Xbox owners more space for games

The term “hybrid” gets passed around often these days, usually in relation to cars and computers, but hard drives are about to get a hybrid of their own. Sort of.
