That's right, folks. I was on a recent shopping trip to Target (you know, the up-scale Walmart?) and aimlessly walked through the toy department when my eye spotted the new game arrivals. Let me tell you, I'm a bit of a sucker for board games and the like, so I was really tempted to buy these. Something tells me, however, they are better on my phone.

TechEye's Week In Review: Top Picks

TweakTown Staff | Aug 26, 2011 at 06:24 am CDT

Hello TweakTown readers, we're TechEye, and we think you'll be interested in these snippets from the industry over the last week.

TechEye's Week In Review: Top Picks 1 | TweakTown.com

Surprisingly busy for the typical Silly Season, that doesn't make some of the wheeling and dealing any less silly. Of course, this week has seen the industry beside itself with confusion as former SAPman Leo Apotheker reveals he wishes to make HP incredibly boring. Wall Street isn't happy, but the ex-HP head, Winsome Carly Fiorina, is. That, by the way, is not a good sign.
