I dabbled in yet another alpha-state indie sandbox game this week. As you'd expect, the title is rough around the edges.

It's one thing to exemplify laziness; it's another to buck the habit just long enough to invent something to keep you idler, longer. Enter Enrico Berruti, an everyday fellow who has created something that almost anyone with a bed could see as useful. His Selfy bed, quite simply, uses a variety of mo...

That's you? Well then, pardner, you're in luck-- give iPhoneSender a look.It is a Safari bookmarklet a...
