The Minority Report special effects are now real, thanks to oblong industries, inc. They are calling this new spatial operating environment, g-speak. No relation to Google in any way. Now, how to get this thing ready for Counter Strike: Source? Hmmm…
I love it when more and more companies go paperless. Right now, American Airlines at Chicago O’Hare, LAX, and Santa Ana Airports are offering boarding passes that can be downloaded into your phone or PDA. Seems to be a great time and paper saver.
As a web designer by day, I always feel the pressure of creating works of web art. But then, once in a while, I like to visit PhotoshopDisasters. It reminds me that we are all human and tend to mess up at times. I mean, look at the photo on the left. See something wrong? Yea. How does that one get past the whole creative staff, then published and printed? Oh well. =)
Google’s next step in taking over the world. A free voice search iPhone app. As if typing was hard enough, now you can just say phrases like “Where’s the nearest Starbucks?” or “How tall is Mount Everest?” Your voice is then translated into data, through Googles servers, then back to your phone with your search results. Right now, you can already do this type of thing, but you would need to call GOOG-411 first. The free app is said to be ready and in the app store tomorrow.

More irks of mine after the break. Read On
As the Raid for Wow comes closer, we log in, and sit around until invites go out right? Well that is what I did a lot! I put off eating, showering, and chores! It sounds bad, but some of us have done that :P . We often get in trouble for not doing our chores, telling our parents we will do it later!!! And if we do go to school, I am pretty sure some of us have tried to do their homework while in raids.
When it comes to raiding, it begins to be like a job. We log on at set times everyday, get situated to play, are prepared with food by our side, and have Ventrillo open. When can we tell ourselves, that enough is enough! When will we say, ‘ I gotta miss today’s raid cuz of homework’ ?!
On the other hand, if we raid, we will be in line for those nice epix that make us happy =) To an extent, I have found that a raid schedule has motivated me to time manage my chores and homework, but if we are lagging, how much does it mean to us to put it aside for the Raid?
I just recently got a buddy of mine back into WoW and a friend of ours recommended we try Blizzard’s Recruit-a-Friend promotion.
The RAF promotion basically gives the 2 players 3x experience from killing mobs and quest turn-ins, as long as they are grouped and within 4 levels of each other. In addition to this awesome speed bonus, the recruiter of the pair gets a free mount as soon as the recruitee pays for 2 months of gametime. The recruitee’s character can also grant 1 level for every 2 levels he is to the recruiter’s toon.
I literally spent the first hour or so questing with my buddy to get to level 12 and a trio of our friends rushed us to 60 as they cleared instance after instance. There are pretty much no drawbacks to this except for the fact that you have to buy a new account and that the features only work till level 60. Still, RAF is definitely awesome and something people should consider when thinking about levelling a new character!
