iOS Game Suggestions Wanted

I'm looking for some new games my kid might enjoy on an iPad he has access to. Specifically, I'm looking for games that (a) an elementary school aged kid could play, (b) don't have ads (I'm willing to pay for that), and (c) aren't a fremium model of play. So what favorites do you or your kids have right now that fit the bill?

How can I best embed a user info page with login in a GoogleSite?

I'm building a website for work. Users must be able to create an account and update a fairly lengthy set of CV-type academic info on this account (lists of publications, grants won, employment history, etc.). Users should be able to update this info over time, so a single serve Google Form will be insufficient. The tricky bit: it needs to be embedded in a Google Site. [more inside]

I need to do video recordings in a living room type setting where people are talking. The problem is that when voices get quiet, the recordings on my iPhone can't play back with enough volume.

It can cost money, possibly even significant money. [more inside]
