The one downstairs is mine and while I'd like to say I spend hours on the thing beating up foes and playing the latest titles, my use of the... Read more...
Microsoft's been spending time and resources releasing mobile applications for competing platforms, and while there's a certain logic in that, its latest app for iOS is, well, an interesting submission, to put it nicely.
