Froyo is the minimum requirement for the game run, but given the<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/08/four-out-of-ten-androids-prefer-the-taste-of-gingerbread/"> very dominant</a> status of Android 2.0 and up, most won't find it an issue. This management sim lets you create a mix of businesses and attractions to draw Bitizens (the pixelated chaps you see above) to come live, work and play in your property. There looks to be some kind of smartphone game exchange going on, with this not-so-tiny timesink transfer following the recent appearance of <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/17/minecraft-arrives-to-mine-your-wallets-on-ios/">Minecraft</a> on iOS.

Aptly named a "shock mounting cover glass in consumer electronic devices," the invention claims a tunable shock mount sandwiched between the phone's glass and other hardware. There's also plans for a sensor that can distinguish a "drop event" from normal phone movements and an actuator to prepare the shock mount for impact. Given that it's only at the application stage, we won't be seeing bombproof iPhone displays any time soon, but here's hoping it'll become a product reality someday.

If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at <strong><em>ask [at] engadget [dawt] com</em></strong>.<br /> <blockquote> <p> <em>"I'm moving into a new place, and I need a good wireless home security and fire system. But here's the thing -- I only have a broadband internet connection and a cellphone. I can't use one of those traditional ADT systems that require a landline, and moreover, the $40+ per month they charge is outrageous. I need a DIY option that monitors both security and fire, and I'm fine paying up to $25 or $30 a month for UL-certified off-site monitoring. SimpliSafe and Lifeshield seem decent, but the former doesn't monitor fire yet. Support for live feeds and alerts on my smartphone would be a huge plus. Thanks!"</em></p> </blockquote> Looks like SimpliSafe will be the perfect solution when it adds fire support in 2012, but Roger needs help in the here and now.

This time around the team decided on creating a fitting tribute to Steve Jobs -- a custom ride complete with built-in iPad -- and thus the iShred was born. By no means a <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/04/keepin-it-real-fake-ipad-phone-is-the-answer-to-a-question-n/">cut-and-shut</a> affair, the team take inspiration from the simple, yet creative, design principles that led to ideas like the iPad Smart Cover. A layer of ABS with a cut out for the screen sits atop an all aluminum base, sandwiching an Apple-esque illuminated Signal logo -- presumably so you know when your WiFi is on while heading off-piste. Power is cleverly supplied only when contact is provided by the presence of a rider. If you think this is all just for show, think again, as they final product gets taken out on the slopes and put through its paces, complete with a bit of apr&egrave;s-ski Facetime.<p><a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/19/say-hello-to-the-ishred-snowboarders-tribute-to-steve-jobs-vi/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Say hello to the iShred, snowboarders' tribute to Steve Jobs (video)</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/19/say-hello-to-the-ishred-snowboarders-tribute-to-steve-jobs-vi/">Say hello to the iShred, snowboarders' tribute to Steve Jobs (video)</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.engadget.com">Engadget</a> on Sat, 19 Nov 2011 19:13:00 EDT.

Now the manufacturer is looking to make a dent in the healthcare industry with a connected platform called Home Health Hub (HHH). The i.MX28-based HHH isn't an actual product, but a reference platform for others to build on. The ARM9 processor is connected to a host of networking interfaces, including WiFi, Bluetooth (as well as its <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/21/bluetooth-4-0-with-low-energy-almost-finally-ready-to-roll/">low-power</a> implementation), <a href="http://www.engadget.com/tag/zigbee">Zigbee</a>, sub-1GHz and Ethernet. The Hub is supposed to be just that, a central point for connecting various medical devices like blood pressure monitors or glucometers that then feeds data to a tablet. Developers and other interested parties can get their hands on the reference platform from Digi International as the iDigi Telehealth Application Kit for $499.
