App Of The Week #1

November 14, 2009

This is our new thing here at B4, App Of The Week. Every Friday we will bring you one our favorite iPhone/iPod Touch apps. This week, we decided that pocket god: EP: 28, Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy our favorite app is: Pocket God, by Bolt Creative. Their latest episode, episode 28, is titled, “Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy”. For those of you who are not familiar with Pocket God, you get your own little islanders to play with and do what you want with. You can strike them with lightning, drown them or blow them up. You control the weather, the volcano, the fishies, the sun, the moon and even the sharks with laser beams attached to their heads. There are four different “worlds” to explore. Go to Dinosaur Island, The Graveyard, Palm Tree Island or underwater. There are mini games that you can play in Pocket God, also. There is Ooga Jump, Coconut Bouncing and Pygmy Bowling. Thees all happen while you’re playing, instead of touching a button and waiting for a different game to load. The Bolt Creative team comes out with new Pocket God episodes as often as they can to keep everything new and exciting. With each update comes new features. For Example, when they came out with the new episode, Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy, they added a spider in the graveyard that you fight with a spear. This is one of the best apps in the app store, and you’ll never get bored… it is a must buy.

Things That are Disappearing

July 23, 2009

Hey Jeary here. Do you remember in school learning about card catalogs, and cassette tapes? I do. I was on the internet and saw a head liner that said, “100 Disappearing Things“. I thought I would look and I just thought it was crazy how all of these things would be something my children (when I have some) would ever know about. I think I will name 20 of them so you can know a few. To see more then just click on the link above.

Audio-Visual Entertainment

1.Inserting a VHS tape into a VCR to watch a movie or to record something.

2. Vinyl records. Even today’s DJs are going laptop or CD.

3. Standard-definition, CRT TVs filling up half your living room.

4. 3-D movies meaning red-and-green glasses.

Computers and Videogaming

5. Recording a song in a studio.

6. Turning a PlayStation on its end to try and get a game to load.

7. 5- and 3-inch floppies, Zip Discs and countless other forms of data storage.

8. Wondering if you can afford to buy a RAM upgrade.

The Internet

9. Finding out information from an encyclopedia.

10. Using a road atlas to get from A to B.

11. Phone books and Yellow Pages.

12. The time before PC networks.

Gadgets

13. Sending that film away to be processed.

14. Typewriters.

15. Answering machines.

16. Pay phones.

Everything Else

17. A physical dictionary — either for spelling or definitions.

18.Writing a check.

19. Cash.

20. Libraries as a place to get books rather than a place to use the internet.

Do you see all of this. Can you imagine your child never knowing what these were. I can’t if you were to ask me. Keep the views coming to my site also. If you want a shirt you can go to this link and find some shirts to buy.

Search Engines.

July 21, 2009

Hi everybody it’s The Jeary again writing a post for Bandew. I know that he was going to be writing a follow up on yesterdays post but I wasn’t sure so I thought I would do a review on some search engines that I use.

I usually use yahoo because of it being my default set browser for when I open up my internet. I like yahoo because it has pictures also you can use and I’m very familiar with it.  It also is quicker for me then using say google. So if I were to rate it on a scale 1-10, I would give it a 9 for it’s outstanding ability to find my questions.

My second favorite is google. I like google becouse it is one of the best search engines I have used to find anything and it has some neat features like “I’m feeling lucky” and stuff like that. They also put in a new one I think a couple of weeks ago called, “Land on the Moon”, it on google earth.  Just so you know google earth is like a map of the world that’s in 3D. So one thing that is nice is the fact that you can use it and there’s an answer for any question you have. The only downfall I think it has is the time that you spend getting to the site for google. I give it a 9 out of 10 also just like to yahoo.

This is a fairly new search program known as Bing. You might of have heard about it from it’s commercials and there sayn, “What has  It is a program that pretty much doesn’t have all the extra junk that other have like where you type something in and it comes up with the total oppisite well bing doesn’t do that from my experience. I’ve only used it once or twice but it to me seems like a pretty worthy search engine. Since I haven’t used it a whole lot I can only give it a 7 becouse I don’t totally trust it yet.

So congrats that you made it through the top three favorite search engines that I have used. I hope to be writing a new post soon for my website and Bandew again. Please feel free to participate in voting for the following poll. Thanks again and keep the views coming.
