The story of Mario has been told with video games, sticky notes, first-person animation, and real-life go-karts. But never before have you seen Mario quite like this, reenacted in snack food 6 seconds at a time using Vine.
Super Mario Bros. 1-3 perfectly ports the classic Mario games with flawless audio and gameplay. It almost feels like Nintendo finally ported the games to Android tablets, as many have been clamoring for. It helps to play it with a dedicated controller for the most pure experience, though.
The app comes loaded with the dreaded Airpush, which will pop ads all over your browser. Once you're in the app, it features a very boring menu to help you travel to each game. The games all have the menus you're used to, though. The game's sound effects and … Read more

If attorney general Eric Holder wanted to perform even a momentary Internet wiretap on Fox News' e-mail accounts, he would have had to persuade a judge to approve what lawyers call a "super search warrant."
A super search warrant's requirements are exacting: Intercepted communications must be secured and placed under seal. Real-time interception must be done only as a last resort. Only certain crimes qualify for this technique, the target must be notified, and additional restrictions apply to state and local police conducting real-time intercepts.
But because of the way federal law was written nearly half a … Read more

Super Optimize from Power App Tools promises to optimize your Android smartphone with a variety of tools, including memory optimizer, cache cleaner, uninstaller, and battery manager. Some of its tools simply give you a different way of accessing features your phone already has, such as brightness and volume controls. But at least a quarter of all Windows freeware merely simplifies access to system utilities, so what works for Windows also does for Android, right? Not necessarily: Linux-based Android does some things differently, such as working its resources and freeing them up as needed, instead of keeping them in reserve. Super … Read more
