Samsung claims an iPad Mini coming this yearThe news of Apple launching a smaller iPad has been in the news for quite sometime now. Although the iPad has been the most successful tablet till date, their market share is being cannibalized to some extent by the Amazon Kindle Fire, ever since the 7-inch tablet was introduced to the market. This prompted the rumour mills to get into a frenzy as to what Apple would do to win back their monopoly and claim back their market space, which they now share with Amazon. A report surfaced a few weeks back indicating at Apple gearing up to start production of a 7.85-inch iPad by this quarter with it rumoured to be priced at around the US$249 to $299 mark. A recent report by TNW now claims that Apple does in fact have a prototype of the unit in their labs; further confirming what have been rumours that such a device indeed exists.

Draw Something is ‘fastest growing’ mobile game

Mobile game Draw Something has been downloaded 50 million times in just 50 days, the game’s owner has said.

Zynga, which bought the game’s developer OMGPOP last month, said they believed the figures made it the “fastest growing” mobile game of all time.

The simple game involves players drawing pictures in order to guess words, much like board game Pictionary.

At peak times, Draw Something players create over 3,000 drawings per second.

Apple told the BBC that it did not disclose download figures for specific titles, and therefore could not verify Zynga’s claim.

However, Draw Something’s success has seen it top the iPhone app charts, beating the highly-anticipated sequel to Angry Birds, Angry Birds Space.

In a statement, Zynga said: “We believe it’s not only the fastest growing original mobile game of all time – 50 days to hit 50 million downloads – but one of the fastest growing web sensations that we’ve seen.”

Coin success

The company said more than six billion drawings have been created on the app so far.

In the game, players are given words to try to illustrate by drawing on a smartphone or tablet’s touchscreen.

If the friend guesses correctly, coins are earned to purchase additional items, such as more colours, within the game.

Security experts have warned that scammers are trying to capitalise on the game’s popularity by offering fake prizes via social networks like Twitter.

Volunteers with spades are taking turns digging a 51 mile (83 km) long trench, which will connect several villages in Lancashire to fibre-optic cables in Manchester.
