Nintendo of Japan revealed a ton of new games at its fall media conference, and it's just now getting around to talking about some of them.

John Gruber's (and my) favorite Twitter web app for the iPhone is about to get better -- if you've been on the Hahlo for iPhone homepage lately, you'll have seen that Dean Robinson is working on version 3 of Hahlo (titled, hilariously for us gamers, the Legendary Edition).TUAW got to take a look (al...

If there's one person at CeBIT you don't want to not recognize, it's German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
