Lose Your Head For SOMA – The Revolutionary New Messaging App

Lose Your Head For SOMA – The Revolutionary New Messaging App

Don’t push me cause I’m close to the edge, I’m trying not to lose my head. It’s like a jungle, sometimes I wonder how I keep from going under. Not my words but the words of ’80s hip-hop god Grand Master Flash in his hit song ‘The Message’. At the song’s inception in 1982, it was the first prominent hip-hop song to provide social commentary: they talked about class injustices, race and governmental hypocrisy. I…

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh: A Home Away From Home

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh: A Home Away From Home

Martin Scorsese made a film called ‘Casino’ in 1995, starring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci. I don’t recall a lot from the film (I’d bet Sharon Stone was in it), but what I do remember vividly is a scene where Joe Pesci and his friend get driven out to a cornfield and beaten savagely with a baseball bat until death. Now, of course, this isn’t indicative of all casinos by any means, but it certainly…

BroadTags – Pick a Topic and Follow

BroadTags – Pick a Topic and Follow

Hashtags have come a very long way in recent years. Only three years ago I had not heard of the term and certainly did not know what it meant. After I had learned of its power and description through a friend, I continued to take little interest until I discovered the growing power of a hashtag through Twitter. However, through the app BroadTags you can actually take hashtags one stage further. You will actually follow…

Tings is a social networking app that connects people using the most human form of expression: Review

Social networking apps are getting innovative and the latest one I found was Tings -Dare to Voice, a way of connecting people using that thing we all seem to have forgotten about – our voice. Yes, how often do we see people in the street or in the coffee shop texting, updating their Twitter feed, changing a Facebook status or just fiddling with their phones? All the time – and fewer of us are actually…

Aquapolis: That’s Greek For Water City And It’s Pretty Damn Apt

Aquapolis: That’s Greek For Water City And It’s Pretty Damn Apt

My first introduction to the city building/farming genre, which at that point couldn’t even be called a genre, was the enchanting ‘Harvest Moon’ title for N64. I’d spend hours building up my farm, tending to the animals and growing crops. Life was peaceful on my farm. Perhaps a little too peaceful. And therein lies the problem with the farming genre. Nothing much happens. Sure, if you like to take it easy and use the games…

Maadly: It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Maad Online World

Everything in the online world is instantaneous and sadly, predictable. There’s no real surprise factor anymore, because you can pretty much anticipate what you’re going to discover in your daily timelines and newsfeeds. Not to say that everything is boring, but it sure is repetitive. You know these people and you know their likes, dislikes and priorities. In our modern world, we’re able to transmit that information in mere seconds. As the late B.B. King…

AireLive: Making A Bid For Digital Domination

Ever find your smartphone to be a little overcrowded? You’ve got that perfectly rendered selfie ready to fly up on Instagram, you’ve got that event page in full flow on Facebook, Skype is open and ready to take that call from your cousin in Taiwan, while you’re engaged in meaningless, drawn-out conversation with your mother on WhatsApp. It’s a juggling game, constantly flying back to the menu page, accidentally quitting some apps, typing the wrong…

It will also add full screen photo ID to all of the people on your contact list. The…

SelfieAlbum: I Just Don’t Know What To Do With My Selfie

SelfieAlbum: I Just Don’t Know What To Do With My Selfie

Here’s a fun fact. The selfie stick, that shining beacon of modern life in the second decade of the twenty-first century, was actually already invented in 1995. By the Japanese (also known as ‘God’s Gift To The Universe’). It was unearthed recently in a book detailing a list of useless Japanese inventions. Granted, it was for use with the digital cameras of the time, featuring (I assume) a little trigger on the handle, and there…

iSpark: Far More Traditional Than Your Traditional Social Network

Anyone else notice Facebook’s gone down the pan recently? I don’t think it’s just me; a lot of my friends have jumped ship, and more still seem to not bother with it at all these days. It’s just a deluge of tenuously-linked advertisements, clickbait and shared articles. No one seems to write statuses anymore; they either just share or self-promote. I’m more than guilty of the latter, but even having said that, I deleted the…

EZ PZ RPG: Adventure Calls, Even When The Phone’s Off The Hook

Whatever the dream ends up being, surely a component of it is to make money while you sleep. What better way to work than that? In fact, it would be great to do a lot of things while you sleep; learn a language, hone your mind, etc. We spend how ever many minutes of our lives sleeping, you think by now we might’ve learned to do something productive with that time. While it may not…

Spring is (pretty much) upon us and, as the saying has it, it’s a perfect time for a little clearing out. Of course, a ‘Spring Clean’ constitutes an entire, top-to-bottom clear out and shine up, and what better place to start than with your iPhone photo library. But the mind baulks. What horrors lurk in those seldom-trodden vaults? Glimpses of parties in their death throes, shards of awkward, formal gatherings and splinters of testing times…

Say you’ve just received a bit of good news, perhaps related to your career. For argument’s sake, let’s say you’ve just been cast in the upcoming season of ‘True Detective’. It’s a small role, sure; you’re not stepping into Matthew or Woody’s shoes anytime soon, but hey, it’s a big deal, you want people to know about, and you want them to know about it now.

Oozzat!?: 8 Out Of 10 Secret Agents Agree

I’ve just finished reading a book called ‘I Am Pilgrim’, which tells the story of a covert agent sent to Turkey in a last ditch attempt to stop a catastrophic terrorist attack on the US. Because it’s a spy thriller, there’s constant talk of the ‘secret world’, about how every phone conversation everywhere is monitored by a classified system called ‘Echelon’ and how everyone’s past lives and histories are there for the taking by hackers,…
