Everybody is getting into the iPhone app business this year, even outdoors retailer L.L. Bean.
The purveyor of tote bags, flannel shirts other New England staples has a free game for the iPhone and iPod Touch called "Moosentration." It works similar to the game of Concentration
only in this case the images include boots, canoes, fishing lures and other L.L. Bean merchandise. So far you can't buy L.L.

Bean shopper is.
