S Ever since Apple introduced reference designs and an API for iOS gaming controllers at WWDC , we've known some kind of officially sanctioned iOS hardware was on the way. The Moga Ace is the first we've gotten in our hot little hands on, and after playing with it for a few days, we can safely say that it's a blast. For some early testing, Moga supplied us with a loaner iPod Touch loaded with a few controller-ready games, including Dead Trigger 2 and Bastion

Samsung's announcing the Galaxy S IV tomorrow but before it does, Apple wanted to take a few shots at Android.

It's just interesting to see Apple try and knock Android down a few notches before the S IV's big coming out party (Schiller said that four times as many iPhone users switched from Android as opposed to to Android last quarter)

Best Buy released a too good to be true coupon earlier today: Spend a $100 and save $50 automatically when you pay with a MasterCard credit card. The fine print had excluded a few products but it was pretty much a free $50 bucks for everything else.

If you think you're having a rough morning after your New Year's festivities, an Apple Store in Paris' opera district is still trying to determine just how much hardware was stolen after four or five armed thieves robbed the store three hours after it had closed. The local police aren't confirming the exact amount that was stolen, but The Telegraph claims there are reports that the thieves made off with over one million euros, or $1.32 million, worth of goods.
