    It doesn't have to be free ~ a game or something. I was looking at this police scanner App and it was cheap, but now I can't find it!

    Here is a link to a site I go to

    iPad Creative - iPad Creative Blog

    read about and play the video for the first app talked about.... Very innovative...... I don't have it, but it's the kind of thing that really shows the unique things that are possible on the iPad....

    It was probably 5-0 Radio Pro Police Scanner. Good news for you its on sale today for only $1.99 to celebrate their 2,000,000th download! (That's 2 MILLION downloads) This is the iPhone/iPod version. The iPad version is still $4.99, but you are buying it to hear the scanner stuff, not to look at, right? Plus it also has tons of "bonus feeds" or streaming audio - everything from Acid House to Zouk (whatever that is?) I am 53 and I have 3 different "all Beatles" station streams. Groovy, man!

    Piyo Blocks 2 is the BEST match-3 type game out there, and the colours on the ipad just light up the screen. Try the lite version. Although the full version is pretty cheap anyway.

    Also Peggle (iphone version - doesnt look too bad when scaled) is a great time waster.

    Sort of...

    According to the owner and moderator of billiardsforum.info:

    "Hah the answer will probably suprise you. "Billiards" is a term which describe all games that are played on a billiard table. The real name for what we call pool is "pocket billiards".

    "Pocket Billiards" is just one version of Billiards. Some billiard games are played on tables where pockets don't even exist, such as 3 cushion or bar billiards.

    In the 19 century "poolrooms" existed, but were not the pool rooms that we know today. They were simply betting parlors where people came in to bet on horse races or play poker. They were called "poolrooms" because everything involved a "pool" of money.

    While people sat around the pool room and waited on results, they installed pocket billiard tables. People of course began to gamble on these too. Therefore, the name "pool" became attached to billiards simply because of the betting, and it has nothing to do with actually playing the game. When people say something like "Hey, want to play some pool" we all know that they are referring to billiards, but technically they are asking you if you want to play a bet."


    Clear as mud, eh? This is way more that you really wanted to know, right?
