This week in Cult of Mac Magazine, it’s time for Leander to bust out that famed “vision thing” he’s so great at with his informed take on the top five best Apple products of all time. Ever.

Then we’ve got a cat fight between two of the hot digital intelligences out now: Siri and Google Now, a ton of tantalizing details about Apple’s latest record-breaking earnings call, a peek at a leaked iPhone 6s front panel that seems strangely familiar, and a look at how invisible advertisement may be slowing your iPhone way down.

All that and more in Cult of Mac Magazine, freely available right now in the App Store.

Stupid Zombies 3 offers over 100 different levels to blast your way through using a shotgun, flare gun, or grenade launcher (it’s bouncy!) to rid the world of these intellectually challenged individuals who experience undeadness.

Check out the trailer below to see what I mean.

Do you mediate every bit of your experience through the cold display of your iPhone? Do you film concerts, text during dates, and spend more time looking at your screen than into the eyes of the people you’re hanging out with?

Here’s how to do that.
