Processed with MoldivFinally this week we got a little breather with the new release schedule opting for quality over quantity.

We kick of this week’s discussion with Apple’s recent acquisition of speech recognition company Novauris and Amazon’s new Apple TV competitor, the Fire TV, and what both of these could possibly mean to the features and SDK changes that Apple reveals at (the just announced) WWDC event in June.

For apps we talk about the new Comedy Central app and Doorsteps Swipe™ for Real Estate, a simple way for home shoppers to build lists of properties that interest them.

On the games front we explore three brilliant new games, the gorgeous looking and engrossing Monument Valley from ustwo™, the deep indie gaming experience of the iPad port of PC’s FTL: Faster Than Light and the fun card flipping of Big Fish Games’ new sequel, Fairway Solitaire Blast.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
