Technically speaking, you're not supposed to be able to install emulators on an iPhone to play classic games. But that doesn't mean it's not possible. Here's how to install emulators on any iOS device, no jailbreak required.
In these smartphone-studded days, it's easy to forget how computers worked. Once you had to run programs off of floppy disks and wait ages for everything to load. Luckily for your nostalgia, some bored developers are keeping the past alive with full-featured emulators that run in your browser.
The Cloud might seem like a modern-day marvel, but in fact it relies on software old and new. That's why now, more than ever, Virtual Machines are used to run legacy software and power the Cloud that we don't think twice about.
iOS: Technically, Apple doesn't allow game emulators into the App Store. However, every once in a while, an emulator sneaks in. Remote File Manager is one of those apps.
If you've ever messed around with Linux, you're probably familiar with a little program called "Wine," WINdows Emulator/Wine Is Not an Emulator. With its magic, you can run Windows applications on your Linux box (as well as other operating systems), and soon, Wine could be running them on your Android phone as well.
The latest Windows Phone 7 ROM has already been unlocked and has plenty of cool new stuff to check out, including call history and notifications, dialer interfaces, and Office, which we caught a tantalizing glimpse of last week.

If you're a fan of the PSP look and form factor but eschew the 3D graphics for NES/SNES and Gameboy-level sprites, the PSP-900 is $90 worth spending.
The GAME-800 is just another one of those direct from manufacturer PMP all-in-one pocket devices. And maybe it's just because I was a corpulent kid, but I find the design quite charming.
There are enough crappy Chinese MP3 players to fill a toxic Shenzhen waste dump many times over, but the Oppo Muse G11, with its traditional d-pad and promise of 8-bit glories emulated: I want.
While the do-everything touchscreen of the iPhone seemed like the perfect solution for game emulation, it's tough to top real buttons when it comes to mashing away at Track & Field. So the iControlpad attaches to the iPhone and gives it a PSP makeover. The prototype (pictured here) was pieced together from the…
This is a Cowon Q5W PMP that's been rigged to hook up to an original Playstation controller and run a SNES emulator. On the one hand, it's sweet to see SNES games being played on a PMP. On the other hand, this is a honking $550+ PMP, so you'd probably be pretty pissed if it didn't have the juice to do this. In any…
ZodTTD's snes4iphone v1.0.0 was recently released and it works surprisingly well. After a few games of Mario All-Stars and Super Mario World it's obvious this emulator has come a long way.
