Play a Mario Kart Ripoff, Scan Your Business Cards, and Defend Your Miners

There are games we really want on the iPhone but we know we'll probably never get. Actually anything Nintendo makes would be great as an iPhone app. But there is one app in particular that would really make me happy: Mario Kart. Lucky for me, there's a complete ripoff of the game in the App Store right now. Plus, another tower defense game and a way to organize all those business cards, all in today's app deals.

Why are we still using business cards? I have hundreds of business cards I pass out to people almost every day. Or year, maybe. They in turn give me their business cards.
