Check out Bill & Steve’s adventures…well debate, joke, discussion that went down at D5~ The beatles line quoted by Steve is a killer.

Now I love games, but why not get smarter while doing so and track your progress too? Henceforth the article on Lumosity (the Lumosity site), that claims to improve your cognitive function via brain games and excercises.

EMI and Google have reached agreement meaning there are now ‘legal’ music video clips on Youtube now hehe

Sick of having to restream clips on Youtube, google, yahoo! etc? Well the new RealPlayer lets you rip away~~ Check the article here.

Surface Computer?! Map wars! SL not so hot, Apple ain’t cool with MySpace

Mid-week it is! We got a lot to cover so let’s roll out the red carpet for your textual nirvana!!!

Tech Love

Microsoft has announced its Surface Computer…”Microsoft Surface.” No idea what a surface computer is? A Surface computer is able to recognize physical objects and allows hands-on, direct control of content such as photos, music and maps. Surface turns an ordinary tabletop into a dynamic surface that provides interaction with all forms of digital content through natural gestures, touch and physical objects.

The new product is aimed directly at hotels, retail establishments, restaurants and public entertainment venues and should be commercially available towards the end of the year. Checked out the video clip and was rather impressed! Pong anyone?

After yesterday’s post on Microsoft Live’s 3D maps…Google has come back with Google maps WITH 360 streetside views!!! I took a tour of New York again but on the street level today and really had a blast. Can’t wait to check out NYC one day…unless someone out there comes up with a super great innovation before I actually get there~ Maybe on World of Warcraft hehe

Now I know how much the media loves Second Life and how awesome it is for people and marketing activities and so on…Here’s another heartbreaker for them, here’s the real-life picture (I laugh I laugh) of what’s actually happening to these big names in the SL environment.

Apple ain’t such a big fan of MySpace? Interesting…well basically apple stores allow people to try out and tinker with their products, but when people rock up to check their MySpace…they decide to take their freakin time taking photos, commenting and basically not letting others test the machines…which has resulted in MySpace being banned in Apple stores. *Chortle chortle*

Lifestyle

Keep your fave foods fresh! Here’s a clip for closing chip bags without the clip! And how to keep cookies fresh with bread??!!!

Today’s pic is…how to promote fights! Wish Don King had known this ages ago!

Enjoy!

Finally, for those parents who are concerned about their childs music listening habits…Disney has come up with a solution har har! They’ve launched an online store for kid-focused singles, albums and music videos. Basically a child -friendly iTunes.

I stumbled (LOL) on this site that states eating a soup or salad before a meal helps weight loss by curbing hunger…so if anyone out there wants more lazy tips to get lean and mean, go crazy on salads and soups! blah….
