Droid 2 Must Have Games

Games kick ass, am I right? Am I right? (****Spoiler…YES!*****)

Since I haven’t blathered about how awesome Android stuff is in a while, I figured I would ramble about games for a while. So far, I have found four games that are pretty much “must-have.” I hate that term, but it gets me search engine traffic. And traffic is a must-have. (Sorry.) You can find these must-havers on Android Market, but you probably knew that. Let’s begin.

In order of most-must-have, to still-must-have-but-not-as-much-as-most-must-have…

Angry Birds — Q. Why so angry, birds? A. Those egg-stealing pigs, that’s why.


I like that one ^

Robo Defense — Tower defense, FTW. I got really, really sucked into this one, keeping it in the two spot. All acheivements, check.
joke fail

D - Fence...get it (shakes head)

Fruit Ninja — Chopping the shit out of fruit…this game is as fun as it sounds
nacho ninja

Fruit Ninja looks more like Nacho Ninja

Doodle Jump — Pretty sure this (like Angry Birds) made some waves on iStuff. You jump a doodle…it is amusing as hell.

Stupid Flanders

I’m still waiting for the non-advertisment-laden version of Angry Birds to drop. Right now, the free app is all that is out there on the Android Market. I’m not entirely sure, but I think I spent less than 3 bucks for the other three apps. Robo Defense has a pretty solid trial version, FWIW.

Well, in any regards, get Angry Birds. Meetings at work become little workday vay-kays. Little bird flinging vay-kays.

If you come across anything that I should check out, hit me with a comment. Or, Tweet that crap over to @swantron. Plug.

Day Off Rundown

Happy Presidents Day. I like Taft, because he was fat.

Here is what I did, on my day off from banking software.

1) Attacked our clogged kitchen sink dilemma, again.


Snake, In

~~Pretty glad I opted not to be a plumber, even though I rule at plumbing. Not really about the ruling, but I most assuredly would hate to be a plumber.

snake, also ftl

Snake, Out

2) Busted out the vacuum. Pretty sure I opted not to be a vacuum-er for my profession. I’m pretty good with a vacuum, though.

spelled wrongly

vaccum? vacuum? vacumm?

3) 5.5 miles on the elliptical. Hulu is the best thing to happen to working out at home, and Nova is the best thing to happen to Hulu. I learned about deciphering Mayan writing today. It was pretty awesome.

blurry, because I'm kicking ass

4) Did a little spray paint art…a.k.a. “Man Art” It will eventually be a samurai…pretty manish.

suck it, Da Vinci

5) Currently, doing a little blogging, with Smokie on Pandora in the background.

It’s a wrap.

2010 Tech Wishlist…the ‘what if’ edition

So, I didn’t win the Montana Millionaire grand prize, $100,000 prize, $10,000 prize, or even the consolation slap-in-the-face-fifty-dollar-instant-win prize. Really had my hopes up for that guy. Turns out, I’m still spending 45 hours a week in my cubical, with my dual monitors and hot sauce. I switched from my plastic coffee cup to a glass one (pickle jar) which is nice. Aside from that…it is business as usual.

Needless to say, ample day-dreaming time in conjunction with a crack at a cool million got me thinking…what the hell would I actually blow some loot on, if it was there. That has led me to this…pondering getting an emergency loan and doing some awesome stuff with it. Buckle up, because this list is all over the fricking place.

1 ) Trade the Viseo LCD in on a Samsung LED. Embrace the future! LEDs look great and are energy efficient…for the hippies.

LED is the new LCD, which was the new Plasma

2 ) Check out Japan. Sea food and robots…PEWPEWPEW. Tokyo has a giant Gundam statue, for christ-sake.

I think I'd do well in Japan

3 ) Get my ass back into robotics. My last project (solar following flower) did not succeed. Boo. I think I could do better with…

4 ) Arduino…

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Plus, it is Linux compatable, and you can do sweet stuff like this…DIY GameBoy

Tetris on an analog stick...

5 ) Destination wedding…and
6 ) Honeymoon: Bahamas with Kate. Since the engagement ring wiped out the ol’ savings account, I loan would make for a nice honeymoon.

fruity drinks

sun+fruity drinks = awesome

7 ) Truckload of Advil. Those fruity drinks ^ give me headaches. Pretty sure I’d need a truckload.

8 ) 5+3. I have a problem. I pretty much cannot see a Netbook without wanting to buy it. Same goes for bad-ass notebooks, like the Alienware M17x. So sweet…especially once you wipe the sucker clean and install Linux. FTW!

gaming laptop

alienware...more like robotware

9 ) Trip to Mesa…might be the last Cubs Spring Ball in Arizona. Spring ball is third, only to fall/summer ball…which leads me to…

10 ) Trip to Wrigley. Especially during October.

Old Style, cheap.

I also would need a truckload of Advil after Wrigley…they practically give away those Old Styles.
