Chargers Vs. Steelers: A Disappointing End

October 4, 2009

The Chargers were in Pittsburgh today, and had a great second half offensively. The first half was absolutely terrible. No offense, no defense… nothing. It all added up to 21 points in the first half. Take away one of those TD’s and I think the Chargers would’ve won. My player of the game: Antonio Gates. He had a big game, 9 receptions for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Chargers had an awesome comeback in the second half, scoring their only 28 points. They just dug themselves to deep of a hole.  Next week the Chargers have a bye, and the Steelers are facing Detroit (1-3-0, 4th in the AFC North). So, after this week:

Chargers (2-2, 2nd in AFC West)

Steelers (2-2, 3rd in AFC North)

Upset of Week 4:

Denver Broncos: 17   Dallas Cowboys: 10

That game was a HUGE surprise.  I was hearing all about Dallas all week, and how phony Denver 3-0 start is. I’m not saying that the Broncos, who lead the AFC West at 4-0, deserve it… but they are there and that’s all that matters now. They beat Cincinnati on a fluke play, but whatever.

They have a tough schedule coming up. If they can go through the Patriots, the Chargers, the Ravens and the Steelers with 2 or less losses they might actually be a contender. I don’t see it happening, though. My prediction is that they will have MAX, 1 win. New England, Baltimore and Pittsburgh will dominate them on defense and out play them on offense. If they are not beat up after their game with the Patriots, then Denver and my Chargers are going to have a close game on their hands. However, if the Broncos go out there tired and beat up from the previous week, the Chargers can put it away early.

Snow Leopard Is Here!

August 28, 2009

OS X 10.6

Today Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard came out, and thank god, I ordered it in advance. Snow Leopard is basically an improvement on 10.5 Leopard, and you can read about that in Mac VS. PC. Snow Leopard is faster, more efficient, and takes up less space on your hard drive. In fact, before I installed it today I had 177.2 Gigabytes left on my hard drive. Now, I have 189.46 left! That’s 12.26 GB smaller than Leopard! Apple says, “In ways big and small, Mac OS X Snow Leopard makes your Mac faster, more reliable, and easier to use.” and ” Mac experience…fine-tuned”.

The Finder has been updated, it’s mainly cocoa, though. You can also customize your spotlight searches, read multi-paged documents (in icon form) in the Finder, or watch a QuickTime movie in Finder icon form. According to Apple.com, start up is 2x faster and shut down is 1.8x, or 80% faster than Leopard.

Here’s my favorite part: QuickTime X! On QuickTime X, X standing for 10, you can share to iTunes or YouTube, you can screen record, audio record, or record with your webcam. QuickTime videos are also viewable in Exposé, so when you go into Exposé, you can still watch it. Videos in QT can also be trimmed, such as on the iPhone. The video playback is also in higher resolution and is smoother. And come on, who doesn’t love the new logo?

There is a few more things, such as Chinese Character Input with your Multi-Touch Trackpad, iChat has higher resolution, 80 % faster Time Machine backup, automatic printer driver updates & automatic time zone setup and something else that wasn’t that important. I’m going to get into that stuff, but, what I will say is, THIS is the OS (X)  you have to get if you want speed, performance, and an over all great experience with an easy to use interface (not to mention it looks way better than PC), then you want Snow Leopard.

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.
