Well, folks, it's about that time again. That time when we head out into the world to get our hands on today's hottest gadgets and to explore the promising technologies of the future. And, of course, we'll keep an eye out for some clever ways to destroy those hottest gadgets, too. But, in the meantime, we've mustered up our favorite segments of Season 3 to make the wait for Season 4 less grueling.
The TOEIC or Test of English for International Communication is a test given to professionals in non-English speaking countries to measure their ability to communicate in an English language setting. There are a number of tools including both books and apps available to help prepare for the test.

The timer, itself, is fairly simple. You can set the amount of time for each of the timed sections (Parts V, VI, and VII), turn the alarm on and off, lock the … Read more
Instant Photo Frames is yet another half-baked photo filtering app trying desperately to cash in on the Instagram hype. Instead of giving you cool photos you'll want to share on Facebook and Twitter, Instant Photo Frames gives you nothing but ads... so many ads that it's hard to actually see what this app does, since you'll have to jump through at least three ads before you get to it.
When you first load the app, it sends you to the Play Store page for a random gaming app -- not the app, itself. It also starts sending … Read more
Running your app as if it's a bait-and-switch scam is no way to win people over. 3D Waterfall Wallpaper does live up to its name with a few gorgeous, high-resolution wallpapers. However, the way the app bombards you with ads is unforgivable. You can find these pictures elsewhere, and you really should to avoid installing this app.
It's bad enough that the app makes you agree to see all sorts of scammy ads before you can even get to the wallpaper. However, the longer you have the app open, the more ads you'll have to duck and … Read more

At first glance, A-Shape seems like an app designed to go over the heads of most users. The opening screen discusses X and Y coordinates and the intricacies of geometry. However, after a few moments spent playing with the app, you'll find that it offers a unique experience even for those that aren't mathematicians, or even mathematically inclined.
The goal of A-Shape is to give you complete control over the dimensions and intricacies of a shape with affine transformation. If this means nothing to you, that's okay -- the shapes you create are incredible and can be … Read more
Adding a shortcut to your favorite Web site is a convenient way to quickly access information while on the go. The ability to add home-screen shortcuts isn't a new feature by any means -- smartphones have had this capability for quite some time -- but it's still good to see it present in BlackBerry 10.
To add a shortcut to your favorite Web site on a BlackBerry 10 device, launch the browser and navigate to the Web site you'd like to add. Once the page has loaded, tap on the menu icon and select "Add to … Read more
Though gold may not fluctuate as much as the dollar, it's nice to keep track of how prices are doing. Gold/Silver Spot Price Widget delivers updates right to your home screen for both gold, platinum, and silver. It doesn't let you customize much about its appearance, but the prices are updated often and prove to be pretty accurate.
Gold/Silver Spot Price Widget features a simple, 2X2 whiteboard with the prices for gold, silver, and platinum. The price appears to be price per ounce, but it doesn't tell you how it's measuring the price or … Read more
The Canadian company said that within the next several days, it will formally ask the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Ontario Securities Commission to review a report from research and investment firm Detwiler Fenton that claims there have been "unusually high" return rates for the recently released device.
BlackBerry Chief Legal Officer Steve Zipperstein said in a statement:
These materially false and misleading … Read more
On the surface, Logic For Preschoolers is a deceptively simple app. The name makes it sound like one of those DVDs designed to enhance brain power in young children and the interface looks as bare bones as it can get. Yet under the surface, Logic for Preschoolers is a well-rounded, feature-rich app that preschoolers will find intriguing and parents will enjoy for its no-frills approach to teaching basic concepts and logic ideas to young children.
The app consists of six categories, each with 15 to 20 questions. The questions involve recognizing the relationship between two pictures and then filling in … Read more
