Moga's iPhone game controller emerges

Culture
It's time for a peek at the new iPhone game controller. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. We have an early look at another type of iPhone game controller. Thanks to photos posted on Twitter by the account EveWeeks. Created by Moga, this controller hugs the phone for games played horizontally. It's reported to have a built-in battery to charge your phone while you play games. And the left and right sides come together to close when the phone is taken out. You'll also notice it has two thumb sticks, which is unique from the more simple game controller that Logitech is reportedly working on shown here. When Microsoft unveiled the latest surface tablets, it also showed off some upcoming accessories like a power cover and a docking station, which were said to not be available until next year. But as it turns out, the docking station just went on sale now for $200, although quantities are limited. The docking station includes a display port, audio input and output jack and Ethernet port and four USB ports. But we're still waiting for that power cover. Motorola's customizable Moto X smartphone has dropped in price to $100 with the two-year contract. And that is only if you order it from the Moto-maker website, with AT&T or if you get the more plane version from Sprint and US Cellular. The customizable 32gig version on Moto-maker is also little cheaper at the price of $150 Moto-maker lets you choose from 18 back cover colors and seven accent colors. The Instagram as are coming, the photo-sharing app says, it's rolling out photo and video ads to its 150 million active users in the US. The company released a sample out to show what it'll look like. You will know a photo or video is a paid ad when there's a sponsored label, where the timestamp should be. Instagram has made no money in the three years it has existed and since Facebook paid one billion dollars to own it, putting ads on it comes as no surprise. It should be easier now to find photos in other content on Tumblr, the blogging site just rebuilt its search feature to support multiple tags and words to hunt down topics. And there's the option to filter research to different types of posts like only images. The popular Twitter app Tweetbot got a redesigned for iOS 7 on the iPhone. And with it comes a price hike. The new Tweetbot now cost $3 a buck more than before. If you think that's pricey, well, the cost may go up again. It's listed as the limited time sale. Aside from the new look, the app is also said to be faster and people tend to pay for an app like this since it has more settings and features than Twitter's official app. An iPad version is reportedly in the works. That is your tech news update. For more details, head to cnet.com/update and follow along on Twitter. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
