Payback is a Grand Theft Auto clone for the iPhone, which is kinda cool, but personally, the controls were foreign and confusing and I'm too old to get used to something that isn't a d-pad. However, it's obviously striking a chord, as it's managed out sell Trism.
They've sold 65,000 copies of Payback, and had 500,000 downloads of the Lite version. Not too shabby.
Some wiz has hooked up his Mazda RX8 (who seems to be an Aussie, going by the licence plate!), to an iPod Touch
. He managed to start the car, turn it off, unlock and lock the doors, get telemetry such as RPM and temps and even hooked it into Google Maps and GPS to show where it is. The car has a 3G modem in it, which can be controlled over the Internet. Bloody amazing. Someone has told me it could be an April Fools prank, but I hope it isn't. I WANT TO BELIEVE.
