Twitter gets AR (augmented Reality) app! the apocolypse is here!!!!

Do you use twitter? do your friend tweet using geotagging? well now you can see  in real time exactly where they are tweeting from using augmented reality!

twitter augmented reality

pretty cool eh? its 3 bucks at the app store for Iphones but only 3GS as it needs the 3GS\’s compass to align things up correctly. definitely a cool little app. although i think it is pretty single tasker and if your friends dont geotag their tweets you dont see anything. 🙁

Crutchfield gets a Mobile site worthy of the electronics giant!

I like crutchfield. ever since I Was doing custom car stereos back in high school and college crutchfield was a great place to get good products for the average guy with some higher end stuff here and there. well now all you have to do is point your smart phone at crutchfield.com and it senses your smart phones presence and sends you to a mobile formatted site that really looks slick. you can outfit your car as well as purchase right on your phone! awesome!

PR release is found here for all the information!

Geek Tech Live 43 LHC back online Droid price drop more apple tablet rumors and the equalizer

Welcome to a smaller breaking news segment of Geek Tech Live Episode 43

Todays episode covers the following topics:

Large Hadron Collider pictures at the Big Picture.

Its probably not going to kill us all (yet) but who knows. While you are waiting for armageddon to arrive browse these amazing images from the boston.com picture section called the big picture. truly amazing and really is a beautiful machine…. even if it will create a super black hole that will swallow the earth and neighboring stars.

Gizmodo article on Nokia Droid Price Drop. Looks like the Droid is taking a cue from the Palm Pixi and dropping its price prior to black friday and the holidays. 199.99 nets you a brand new Droid with contract. not a bad deal if you were sitting on the fence for this one.

Nokia Droid price drop

Is Wired.com getting ready for the apple tablet? read more here at Mashable.com. more rumors abound about the apple tablet conde nast is prepping wired.com to be on the tablet? is it even coming soon? not sure if anyone knows other than apple. I reallly wish we coudl get soem sense of what exactly this will all be and a small timeline. even a estimted date from apple would be a blessing. if not I sure hope it lives up to the hype because if its not as revolutionary and cool and gee whiz awesome as they are making it out to be its going to be the bigest flop of the decade!

And finally, I sadly announce the passing of Edward Woodward . you might have known him of \”The Equalizer\” fame. I used to Love that show. i think i may need to buy the whole season and start watching it all over again as a tribute to Mr Woodward.  Read more here at the belfast telegraph website.
