Google Android’s Significance, The Real Facebook Feed, Iron Mike for Motivation GRR!

Actually understand Google Android’s significance.

Until this post by Andreas I had a limited idea of why Google’s Android was causing such a stir in the mobile/cellular world.

“The Android operating system for mobile phones is no different. It’s a platform for building and channeling inventory, much like a web browser. In fact we could say that Android is similar to a browser on steroids, in that it allows developers to easily build any connected handset application anywhere within the mobile user journey, and within those create more inventory.” Read on…(LINK)

IRON MIKE’s MOTIVATION

Now whether you love or hate the man Iron Mike Tyson will always be a KO king. Some of his quotes in my opinion are just a good a motivation than any other. Disagree? Check the clip at the end of the quotes.

“Lennox Lewis, I’m coming for you man. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I’m just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!”

“You got nothing coming, man. I’m going to enjoy this fight.”

On his time in prison

“But you really have to look at the science of the situation. You guys come here to talk and report but you don’t actually look at the facts of what this business is all about. The best thing that happened to those guys and they should stand on their mother’s shoulders and kiss my ass because I went to prison or they would not be existing right now. They’d be a flash in the pan and would have made some money and opened up a restaurant or bar somewhere where they live at.”
“Without discipline, no matter how good you are, you are nothing! One day, and I might not be around; you’re going to meet a tough guy who takes your best shot. He’ll keep coming because he’s tough. Don’t get discouraged. That’s when the discipline comes in.”

On Boxing

“How dare these boxers challenge me with their primitive skills? It makes me angry. They’re just as good as dead.”

“My power is discombobulatingly devastating I could feel is muscle tissues collapse under my force. It’s ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.”

“It’s interesting that you put me in the league with those illustrious fighters [Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Jack Johnson], but I’ve proved since my career I’ve surpassed them as far my popularity. I’m the biggest fighter in the history of the sport. If you don’t believe it, check the cash register.”

Maybe not your conventional motivational speech but a nice way to wake you up from whinging (if you view situations in a similar light to Mike).

A digg for Marketers, Zelda pwns, Myspace +Skype? Most Googled words

The midweek madness is perhaps ramping up as we speak,  embrace it!

Ahh back to the blog, I am setting up 3 new sites of which one will be a personal blog for the hell of it, mainly for humour and insights into issues of the mind that is Pandadan. Will keep you all updated.

Tech Love

I came upon a site that has presented me with a Digg for online marketers called Gooruze. Here’s the quick description but click on the link above to get the whole breakdown.

‘ is a new social network that’s pretty much a Digg for online marketers. So if you’re in the business of creating campaigns for online use, or would like to stay abreast of the latest trends in online marketing, Gooruze aims to separate the signal from the noise.’

For all those who want in and want friends to get started and populate,  this is my profile on Gooruze, so feel free to add me and we can together ramp up our fave marketing stories together muhahaha

For all the Zelda fans out there, the Phantom hourglass review is sayin its freakin sweet, read about it and I guess within a week’s time we may all be playing the same title! (oh you need a DS LITE lol) Hurray!

I’m playing Bully at the moment…rather fun.

MySpace and Skype announced Tuesday they are meshing social networking with Internet telephony, creating the largest voice-connected online community on Earth. I still prefer FaceBook….

 Hilariously awesome article on which country googles what words most, some real gems here. Example:

“Car bomb” – Australia, United States, Canada

“Hangover” – Ireland, United Kingdom, United States

“Burrito” – United States, Argentina, Canada

“Marijuana” – Canada, United States, Australia

Myspace the slow, Aussie anti-whales campaign, Colleges love Facebook (really?!)

Washed out Wednesdays all!

Let’s get the ball rolling shall we?

Tech Love

In  a world where stupidity reigns supreme – out of the dust rolls king MySpace the retards of retards! They’ve NOW (note: NOW) decided to open their developer platform just like Facebook…dude WTF?!
Many Aussies out there aren’t really down with the Japanese whaling the crap out of the seas so why not affect their kids? Well here’s a campaign that believes that’s the way to go! Can the Aussie underdog make a difference? Well the courts certainly ain’t backing us so we’ll see how it goes. My personal opinion is that this is a great effort, the first step towards attention is to rouse interest then communicate to the interest then BAM! We got a group that has power to influence or at least start a riot….your ideas/views on this?

Facebook is mad – I certainly love it, many are…addicted to a point. So want to see the figures that’s bringing Facebook success? Here’s the link for the write up. Demographics, user behaviour, figures, graphs etc. Enjoy!

So so so do you love to Twitter? Well do it on your mobile with Google’s recently acquired JAiku!

Jaiku’s website reveals that the company has temporarily closed new user sign-ups “in order to focus on innovation.”

So hold your horses but keep your eyes open for this. Whether it’s gonna blow up is in the hands of us the people muhahahaha! Or so I’d like to believe…

Lifestyles

So Kanye beat fifty cent in album sales so why not ride the good life by becoming an A-list blogger ? LOL check this post on Kineda.

Movie Reviews: Rush Hour3 + Ratatouille feat. Zuckerberg LOL, Joost!

Okay guys, it’s been long awaited but this post will hopefully bring the noise.

It’s a special edition that has 2 movie reviews for all to enjoy.

Many US people and worldwide alike have probably seen the movies reviewed but Australia is slow so please understand and I hope you enjoy the reviews and articles.

Oh and NO SPOILERS will be here – but u can make it so by commenting LOL

Review 1: Rush Hour 3

rush hour 3

So Jackie and Tucker are back for Rush Hour 3! The similar jokes, great English by Jackie is all back in this 3rd sequel. I’m a fool for the series so I went into the movie with great bias…so it’s unsurprising that I enjoyed it.

The fight scenes seem to have improved (or I’m turnin old and it’s hard to keep up with the hits) Tucker has some moves too now, which was better than him whining all day – so a nice change for all the combat fans out there. But yeh the in-sync singing and dancing by Tucker (and sometimes Chan) is pretty sweet, mainly because I’m a sucker for soul.

Keep a keen eye out for ‘George’ awesome character that doesn’t get enough recognition.

What we wonder is how the hell did Soo-Yung look like shes early 20s when she is ‘apparently’ 13…………pfffttt (i still love Jackie Chan mind you, he makes mistakes SOMETIMES LOL)

For all the soccer fans out there, the woman Genevieve’s real life husband is…………….. none other than Claude Makelele of Chelsea FC! Don’t believe me? Read it here~

So overall, the movie was a lot of fun where thinking was hardly required and just what I needed after a long day. So I give it a happy 7 out of 10. Exceeds expectations.

Review 2: Ratatouille

ratatouille

Pixar are back again with Ratatouille! Now many people are on that Public Enemy tip saying ‘don’t believe the hype’ and initially that did deter me  from checking this movie out, BUT luckily my curiosity got the best of me and I went to check it out… great call.

Now most people go in with the ideal that it would be all light-hearted fun like many other Pixar titles but the story is quite deep and engaging – the maturity factor is there too and well I just really enjoyed the whole film.

Mouse dreams of a greater stage, betrayal, love, friendship and Zuckerberg??? This movie has it all.

Animation was sweet, characters are extremely loveable and easy to create an emotional connection with…ok so I like Remy! so what!? hehe

This movie has to be watched to enjoy instead of my short review so the score is 8 out of 10.

NOW! how the hell is Zuckerberg of Facebook connected to Ratatouille?

Here’s some evidence to show the inspiration  for the character Linguini was derived from Zuckerberg’s face itself!

BEHOLD!

zuckerberg

I hope you enjoyed this comparison as much as I did!

Tech Love (short one)

By the way,

Joost is now open and free for everyone! Yay!

Have a great week and I look forward to hearing from you about the Linguini-Zuckerberg pic…do they look-alike???
