We still need scanners, but for many of us they've become too unwieldy to fit neatly into our increasingly mobile computing set-ups. But this new iPad-friendly device could be the last scanner you'll ever need.

While all eyes are on Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft to deliver the next-generation of gaming in portable and console form, one old-time friend is making a silent return. Atari is partnering with DiscoveryBay Games to launch the Atari Arcade — an iPad dock that enhances old-school arcade classics with the tactility of a joystick and four physical buttons. Right off the bat, you're probably thinking the Atari Arcade is an iCade knock-off. It certainly seems so at a glance; the Atari Arcade is the second joystick dock for the iPad, but the similarities pretty much end there. Read on to find out if the Atari Arcade is up to snuff to make you want to play games like Pong, Asteroids and Centipede all over again.
The original Game Boy is an iconic gadget, one of the first hand-held game machines that ushered in a new era of portable entertainment. And with the iPad 2 carrying that torch a couple decades later, it only makes sense to try to make it look like its ancestor.

Don't misconstrue, but I go both ways — I'm a bi e-reader user. My e-book reading odyssey began with the Kindle. Then I started using the Kindle app on my iPhone. I then moved to the second generation Kindle, then to the Kindle and iBook apps on the iPad. I have now returned to a dedicated e-reader, the new Kobo eReader Touch Edition, switching with the Kindle and the iPad Kindle app where I have most of my unread books. As soon as I finish reading my pending Kindle books, I believe I will stay with Kobo. While not exactly typical, I believe I'm not alone in my tablet v. dedicated e-book reader vacillation.
