There aren't all that many games on the expo floor at Macworld/iWorld 2013 this year, unfortunately. It seems like a lot of game developers stayed home, as most of the apps on display are utility or productivity apps. There are a few games out there in Appalooza (as the app section of the sho...

One of the weirdest devices I've seen so far here at Macworld is Spicebox's Mauz controller. The company recently started a Kickstarter for the project (their second, after a case that tracks your opening of multiple beers called the Intoxicase), but even though that campaign hasn't yet come an...

I've been vocal for many, many years now about Aspyr and their like, and exactly how I feel about them. I'm a big fan of gaming, of course, and a big fan of Apple and the Mac. And Aspyr sits right at the intersection of those two worlds: They're a company, based in Austin with about 50 employee...

There are a lot of accessories to be seen at Macworld 2013, but none caught our eye -- nay, shot an arrow into it -- like the Bowblade. After all, it's kind of hard to miss what looks like a hunting bow being brandished in the middle of a computing convention. Currently in prototype form, the...

There's not much to say about a dock, is there? It's pretty simple: You put your iDevice on a dock and, depending on the functionality, you may charge, sync or blast some audio out. In the case of the Gravitas from Henge Docks, you can do all of those things plus there's some magic inside. Th...

Many of the TUAW team is still en route to San Francisco at this late hour, but a few of us have arrived and picked up our press credentials for this year's Macworld/iWorld event. In between trying to find a place to do today's TUAW TV Live broadcast (my hotel room wasn't ready), grabbing a quick...

A lot of the TUAW crew is packing for the trip to Macworld/iWorld 2013, and while we're usually pretty lax in terms of our show garb (Victor's bow ties being the exception), we pay strict attention to what gear comes with us. It's important for us to be able to share the sights and sounds o...
