As previously promised, GTA: San Andreas has made its way to iOS platforms (compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPod Touch 5th Generation, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and iPad Mini Retina) and is now available for download from the Apple iTunes App Store (listing here).
For those who don’t remember the PlayStation 2 classic title from Rockstar Games (which eventually made its way to the original Xbox platform as well), San Andreas is renowned for its memorable and relate-able characters, the unprecedented amount of character customization in a GTA title, and the fact that it’s one of the largest open world games of all time. I mean, it sure didn’t hurt that it’s damn fun as well.
Check out the following screenshots released by Rockstar below showing off the graphical face-lift that’s been performed and in addition to this a bulleted list of features officially announced as well as character art for the game which is available for $6.99 right now and coming soon to Amazon Kindle, Windows Phone, and of course Android devices.

“Re-mastered, high-resolution graphics including lighting enhancements, an enriched color palette and improved character models;

Over 100 homeless people at numerous locations of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C launch have been reportedly left stranded and unpaid after allegedly being hired by an iPhone re-seller who claims his actions were not illegal and even got into a physical altercation in line while bragging about his “business tactics” to others. Each were promised $40 and a ride home, but once the store selling the devices found out they shut down his plan and he announced that he would not be paying. Since he was arrested for getting into a fight with someone, he also never ended up bringing the people back to their homeless shelters or other locations which they were delivered from allegedly in vans.
What are your thoughts on this tech scandal? Would you buy an iPhone from a person that used homeless people in such an arrogant way? Which is worse, trying to rig the launch to receive over a hundred iPhone 5S / 5c or bragging about it and refusing to pay for these people’s time once your plan was shut down?

If you thought that Apple would release an iPhone 5S and wait another year before even daring to mention the words “iPhone” and “six” in the same sentence, think again. Major finance and consumer publication International Business Times reports today reveal that word around the campfire in insider circles points to the iPhone 6 being prepped for surprise release this Summer 2013 in addition to the release of a less-intense iPhone 5S.
Reasoning behind Apple’s motivation for dropping the new phone ahead of expectation is rationalized and includes a shift from Apple’s current naming system to a new, uniform way of identifying the 3 main iOS devices; iPad 5, iPhone 5, iPod 5 (and soon iPhone 6). This is to help consumers differentiate which specs they should expect with each forthcoming hardware release.
More reasons why Apple would do this continue to include investor relations, consumer demand, bottom line, and even to bring some of the design work inspired and created by Steve Jobs himself to the marketplace.
These reports also seem to line up quite interestingly with a leak that occurred the other night from a former Apple employee who urged that his own advice to the company for years was to drop the “S” naming scheme. If IBT’s intel is correct on this one, it would seem Apple has instead opted to have their cake and eat it too, by releasing the expected iPhone 5S catering to their fanbase while also testing the new naming conventions with the release of a beefier, presumably ‘better’ iPhone 6 at the same time.
RealGamerNewz has reached out to Apple for comment on this matter and at the mean time will file this in the rumors section.
