Warner Bros. iOS games on sale for 99 cents

If you're big into Superman, Batman, and Harry Potter, it's time to start searching the couch cushions for loose change.
Bastion for iOS is a gorgeous-looking action-RPG, and for a short while it's on sale for just 99 cents.
Got plans for the Fourth of July weekend? If they involve long car rides, lines you can't escape, or just lots of couch/hammock/poolside time, consider stocking up on games for your iDevice. Warner Bros. will help keep you entertained on the cheap.
Ending soon, 11 Warner Bros. iOS games are on sale for 99 cents each. Here's the list, with links either to the download page or to related CNET coverage. (Be sure to note the system requirements before purchasing any game, as some of them won't work on older iOS devices.)
Bastion, top-rated indie action-RPG, regularly $4.99.
Batman Arkham City Lockdown, Infinity Blade-esque fighting game, regularly $5.99.
Harry Potter: Spells, multiplayer spell-casting game, regularly $2.99.
Lego Batman: DC Superheroes, the first non-Harry Potter Lego game for iOS, regularly $4.99.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4, an iOS port of the popular console title, regularly $4.99.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7, an iOS port of the popular console title's sequel, regularly $4.99.
Man of Steel, new-movie tie-in heavy on the combat, regularly $2.99.
Man of Steel HD, same game for iPad, regularly $4.99.
Midway Arcade, classic arcade games revived for iOS, regularly $1.99.
Scribblenauts Remix, a Nintendo DS classic that my kids are still playing two years later, regularly $4.99.
Tapper World Tour HD, the classic arcade game beautifully recreated for iPad, regularly $1.99.
There's plenty of good stuff here to choose from, but if I could scrounge up only a buck, I'd have to spend it on Bastion, which is just crazy-fun. But the Lego games are all great as well, and the Batman and Superman games will definitely satisfy your superhero bloodlust.
I don't know how long these prices will be in effect, so if you're looking to stock up on the cheap, don't wait. What title(s) do you think you'll grab during the sale?

Best tech gifts under $100 for Dad

Roku's speedy streamer is the best box yetThe good:The Roku 3's excellent new interface and faster processor makes it feel quicker and more responsive than any other streaming box. More than 750 channels are supported, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, MLB.TV, Amazon Cloud Player, and Vudu. It also has cross-platform search that scours several major TV and movie services to find content. And Roku's nifty new remote has a built-in headphone jack that lets you listen without disturbing others. The bad:There's still no official YouTube channel. Some services have an outdated interface on Roku compared to other streamers. The Apple TV still works better within the Apple ecosystem. And the Roku 3 isn't a great option if you're mostly looking to stream your personal digital media collection. The bottom line:The Roku 3 is the best streaming-video box yet, with tons of content sources, lightning-fast performance, and an innovative remote wit…

Feedbin is a subscription service, costing $3 a month or $30 a year, with an API for developers to integrate into apps, and a functional Web site to browse through your newsfeed.

Power-packed plasma shines brighter

The good:The Samsung PNF8500 series exhibits outstanding picture quality with a class-leading bright-room image, exceedingly deep black levels, very good shadow detail, highly accurate colors and superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics; mind-boggling feature list with touch-pad remote, IR blaster with cable box control, four pairs of 3D glasses, motion and voice command, and the industry's most capable Smart TV platform; unique styling with full-width ribbon stand and slim-bezel metallic finish. The bad:Extremely expensive; correct film cadence requires sacrificing some black level; remote lacks numerous direct commands; imperfect cable box control; consumes more power than LCD TVs. The bottom line:Samsung's best-performing TV ever, the PNF8500 series pushes the plasma picture quality envelope, especially in bright rooms.Amid the hubbub aboutPanasonic's financial troubleand questions about how it will affectthe future of plasma TV, it's easy to forget about Samsu…
