TweetDeck for Android? oh yes!

There are a lot of Twitter applications out there. Even Twitter has a twitter app. and I am a big proponent of getting the app from the source since they sometimes will have something they don’t release inthe API.  I have used a bunch of Twitter apps and I do have to say TweetDeck has the most features. Sadly if you were rockin the Droid you were left out of the geek hug that was TweetDeck…. that is until now! Oh yes TweetDeck is soon to be released. one small thing. the app will not be able to be run in the background? Tweetdeck states that is to conserve battery life of the droid.

Got $190k Lying around? Grab yourself a Solid Gold Ipad. Eh, What?

In this still slightly depressed Economy it really pains me to see these type of oppulent over the top modifications or Gadgets or what not. I will be the first to say the ” you get what you pay for” but seriously?  it has 53 Flawless diamonds embedded in the apple logo and the case was made not of aluminum but 22 carat Solid freaking Gold! If i see Donald Trump sporting this on any media images I will puke. I like my Ipad. I really do. this type of “upgrade” does nothing for the functionality of the actual device. It doesnt make it go faster, or give it longer battery life. It does however make it weigh three times as much and fetch a crazy mind numbing $190,000. If you ask me $599.00 was more than expensive enought for my 32GB Ipad. $190k? no way. I guess the  only good thing I can think of about this “upgrade” is that if the economy does collapse you will have $190,000 worth of Gold you can use to buy a chartered jet to Canada.

What is 180? A frigging Cool Game! that’s What!

A Facebook Friend of Mine Ron Alpert Co-Founder of Headcase Games has a New App out for the Iphone. Its called 180 and its effin fun! There is also a dedicated website Called Whatis180 to learn more. Here is some background for you on the app.

You will have to think quick In the action-puzzler 180.  You must flip, shoot, and match combos before the wall of coins can crush you.
