New Addiction… Destroying the World!!!

It’s been a log time since I’ve played a game that brought out my most creatively world ending, mass-murdering & apocalypse ensuing side… and inspired a roaring “BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA” to bellow out. 

photo 4The game bringing out the best-of-the-worst in me is the addictingly awesome Plague Inc. (FREE or $.99).  You begin naming your special disease and entering the world in your country of choice with a very basic plague.  As you start infecting the masses, and grow in strength, you can choose which “adaptabilities” to start evolving with (how it’s carried, how tolerable it is to elements like heat/cold, how strong it is against antibiotics, etc.).  If you get big enough the CDC will take notice and begin working quickly towards your demise.  From there it’s a rapid bob-and-weave to make sure you stay one step ahead of the human race.    photo 1 (2)The goal?  Total world decimation, of course.  It’s fun to watch the little boats and planes carry your special concoction all over the world… and even allows you to speed-up or slow-down time depending on your needs.  World domination on a microscopic scale has never been quite so addicting. 

Rolling into a 5-day vacation (for most of us) you’re in dire need of something new and exciting to pass the time.  This is it!!!  Download on iTunes HERE, Android HERE.  Most importantly, have fun destroying the human race!

Transformers Thumb Drive

With all the cloud storage out there, I’m not really sure the need for a thumb drive exists anymore.  But then I saw this and I thought, this is a thumb drive I would use more often.

Coming in many sizes and for under ten bucks, it is a nice conversation piece for sure.  And it is a functional piece of equipment.  The only big issue is that it is really fricking hard to transform.  I snapped half the tail off the first time I did it.  And I can imagine that a leg would come off pretty easy too.

That all being said though, if you are looking for something cool to get the nerd in your life, you could do a lot worse than this.  As long as it is used as decoration and not an everyday device.  41+-A5If-+L__SX300_

Google Chromecast Review

chromecastathomeI know this has been on the market for a few months now, but I think I am finally ready to give it a review.  Why?  Well because I just got one and I have spent the last few weeks messing around with it and let me say that with an emphatic scream, I fricking love this thing!!!!

Look, I won’t go as far a saying that everyone should own this, not wait, I am going to go that far.  Not only is it a really cool, I can see this really being a game changer for a lot of people.  Set up is so easy that my dog could probably figure it out, so even the those that are not very tech savy should be able to get up and running in about ten minutes.

If you are like me, you have a fairly decent home entertainment system, you know the usual HDTV, 360, Blu-ray action.  My biggest challenge was being able to stream my music and movies that I had on my computer to the big screen.  And now, Google Chromecast has pretty much solved all of these minor entertainment problems in my life.  A quick look at some of the functions I have tried so far.

Netflix:  Now this is kind of a neat function, although for me I don’t use it much now since I am in the middle of my Xbox live annual subscription.  Pretty much the only reason I have live is for Netflix and to keep my games updated.  I am not, nor will I probably ever be a big online gamer.  So for now, I do a lot of my Netflix watching through my 360.  However, with Google Chromecast, I can now toss what I bring up on my tablet to the Chromecast and it instantly plays it.  My tablet becomes the remote and presto, everything is kosher.  Not a bad way for a guy like me to save 50 bucks a year on an Xbox live subscription.   The only issue here was the picture quality was a little degraded, but I think that had more to do with my Wifi then the Chromecast since I have my 360 hardwired into my router.

Google Play:  Being an android guy, I have backed up all my music to Google Play.  While this is great to access from my phone when out, I wanted to be able to throw some music up when I’m working around the house.  Now I can cast my playlists or a certain artist to the Chromecast and even queue up songs as I see fit.  Album artwork is instantly displayed on the TV screen as well.  Something that I like because I am anal about album artwork.

YouTube:  I used to search for the random YouTube stuff on my DirecTv DVR, but now I can actually use the app and cast it to the big screen so much faster.  Again here, the quality is good and I can even queue up videos to watch as I am going along.  It is a nice feature to catch the random cat videos and movie trailers.

Hulu Plus:  I have yet to use this app, but I can imagine it works much the same as the Netflix App.

Google Chrome:  I have only done a few little tests on this, but most of the stuff that you can bring up on your Chrome browser can be cast to the big screen.  There are some plug ins out there that help in this, but I have yet to fully research them.  I was able to open a video on my browser and then send it to the TV.  Seemed to work good and the quality was ok.   But I blame myself on that because I ripped the file to play on a tablet only and not on a big screen.  It was serviceable for sure, but I would only recommend it if you had really high quality stuff.

Overall I give the Chromecast a huge thumbs up!  For $35 dollars you can really not beat it, especially if you are an android user.  I am sure that functionality for Apple products is coming and it might already be there.  But I think the seemless nature of these Google products working together is simply amazing.

An Early View of the iPhone 6? It Sure Is!

While dumpster diving behind Tim Cook’s house recently, we came across some top-secret specs of the… are you ready for it????  The iPhone 6!  Here is a quick wrap-up of what we found and even some scans of top-secret doodles.  Apparently Jonathan Ive is a really shitty artist.

Will we get sued and put out of business for leaking this info?  Probably… but screw it!!!  We are journalists dedicated to the truth, and our people (that’s you) deserve the best.

The doodles that we found, featuring some pretty incredible tech, for the iPhone 6 are bellow (click on images for a larger view)… and yes, the details for each picture is listed down there as well. You can bet your sweet ass cheeks that we will be camping out like some über Star Wars/Harry Potter/Halo nerd to pick up this one at midnight. 

Here are the deets:

  1. Siri will now only obey short, one word commands much like a dog. She will also sulk when you yell at her for being stupid or dropping a call.
  2. It will provide you with an Asian massage.  A “complete” Asian Massage.
  3. Hidden in the code is a picture of Steve Job’s tumor.
  4. It’s new 80 megapixel camera has x-ray, heat vision and night vision. As well as crazy stalker target lock function.
  5. It is water, dirt, chemical and outer space proof.
  6. Instead of Bluetooth technology, you will be able to communicate with it telepathically.  Yes, you can think about porn and it will show up on your iPhone.
  7. It offers a built-in manscaper for quick shaving on-the-go.
  8. Built in flask to hold approximately 1.5 oz. (a single shot) of any liquid.
  9. Includes a one-time-use taser for debilitating a mugger/robber/drunkwhoresatthebar
  10. Has a 3D projection screen, for truly amazing porn.

Chromecast by Google

All things holy, Google just made something cool.  Well, that is pretty much standard hat for them anyway, but the company’s latest little gadget is the Chromecast.  The little dongle plugs into the back of your HDTV via HDMI and allows you to sync what you are watching on your phone, tablet, or computer to your big screen!  Seems pretty dang neat right?  Of course it is.  What is more exciting is the fact that this little gem will only set you back $35 and is available now on the Google Play Store.

chromecastathomeSo how does it work really?  Watching your favorite movie via Netflix on your iPad and want to share it with everyone?  Simply hit the “cast” button that is now available and Chromecast automatically turns your TV on, sets the input and picks up what you were watching.  What is even better is that it accesses the files from the internet directly without you having to stream to from your device.  Which saves you valuable battery life to play Candy Crush or update your Facebook status.

Did he just say iPad up there?  That is right I did.  The Chromecast is compatible with all devices!  So there is no annoying app to download to get it to work, as it is built into the apps themselves.  Current support for Netflix, Youtube, and Google Play apps make it easy to toss your files to the glory of your big screen.  Currently in Beta testing is the ability to cast from your Chrome browser.

About the only thing that I can say that I don’t like about this is the fact that you have to power it separately via a USB power cable that plugs into the side of the Chromecast.  Clearly, if successful future generations might be able to be powered via HDMI, assuming that technology comes to fruition.

I’m not sure how much of a game changer this will be, with Roku having similar devices and a wide array of channels to choose from.  But I find this device super neat for entertaining purposes.  For the average tech knowledge person, this seems like a pretty easy option to share those photos of vacation on the big screen without having to hook up the computer to the TV.

Facebook “Home”

Mark Zuckerberg , FacebookFirst off, thank goodness it wasn’t a Facebook phone announcement.  If you are buying a phone based off of Facebook you might have a serious problem. But the big announcement today was Facebook “Home”, and will be a family of apps that centers around a users social connections.

Light of details, Facebook teamed with android because, Google makes its software available to anyone who wants to design something cool (suck it Apple).  “Home” is basically a launcher that will be available on April 12th from Google Play.  The experience, is designed to tie the users social network and previously downloaded apps together.  Not sure really why this is needed, but let’s just go with it.

Full review will come after we get our hands on it next week.  Should be interesting.

Are these the titles to the new Star Wars trilogy?

Surprising Star Wars fans around the globe The Walt Disney Company announced Tuesday that is has acquired LucasFilm Ltd. for 4.05 Billion.  LucasFilm had been 100% owned by founder George Lucas.  Lucas, who arguably made one of the best decisions in Hollywood history in asking 20th Century Fox for the merchandising rights to his Star Wars characters will be able to add a cool 4 Billion to his fortune.  Even bigger news announced by Disney is the 2015 release of Star Wars Episode 7.  It will be followed by Episodes 8 and 9 which will released in 2017 and 2019 respectively.  As Star Wars fans already know, Episodes 7-9 were released in book form several years back.  Will Disney turn these fantastic novels into the next film trilogy or will they be starting from scratch?  Disney is not showing their cards as of yet nor have they revealed plans for that other small franchise owned by LucasFilm…Indiana Jones.

One other note…Disney can rest easy now as they pulled off quite a feat in not only securing the comic rights through the Marvel acquisition in 2009, but now also have the film rights to everyone favorite quack from outer space…Howard the Duck.  It only cost them 8 Billion.

Windows 8

It is day four of my upgrade to Windows 8, and I thought I would share some thoughts on Microsoft’s newest reinvention of windows. I unpacked a new Samsung 500gig, 4mb, Windows 8 machine last Friday and from the moment I powered it on, I was very, very pleased.

This was a major upgrade for me as a personal computer. I was running an Acer 1mb Vista machine for the last five years or so. And while I didn’t have any issues with that machine in general, aside from it being slower than molasses in the winter. Anything a little faster was going to be a major upgrade for me. 

First off, if you have a smart phone and you like the feel of it you are going to love Windows 8. It has the flow and feel of using your Smartphone on a larger scale. The new “home” screen is basically a docking station for your programs and apps allowing you easy access to everything that is available to you. Preloaded bloatware was minimal and easy to remove.  Navigation through the home screen is as simple as scrolling your mouse button (or flicking if you have a tablet). I really like the integration of the email app. It was much like a Smartphone would do with one app housing multiple email addresses. I liked it so much I didn’t even install Outlook on this computer because I didn’t see a point. I did install Office 2007 on this machine and it runs with no issues. The system came with the newest form of Office, but I don’t own it or need it so it was uninstalled fairly easily. 

But it isn’t all a love affair with Windows 8. Microsoft is going to have some blow back from people who love the normal work and flow of windows. And don’t see this operating system making a smooth transition into most businesses because frankly a lot of people just won’t get it. There is a traditional “desktop” screen that mirrors Windows 7 nicely. But there isn’t the traditional start screen that we have all come to know and love. There isn’t a lot of clicking to get places, it is more hover and click. If you are busy and trying to fly though things, it could become complicated. You can access the start menu, by hovering and clicking in the lower left hand corner, but it will simply take you to the default “home screen” to pick your “app” or program. Another small annoyance is unless you close out of programs, you could easily get a lot of stuff running and not know it. To take a gander at what you have running, this involves hovering near the upper left hand corner where bubbles pop up with running programs. I find myself constantly closing things that I thought should be closed already.

Allow me a moment to talk about apps. By now we all know that Microsoft doesn’t have the apps that Apple or Google have. And that is understanding. However, the apps that are available seem to be enough to get you going. I browsed the free apps mostly and found many of the productivity apps that I like, along with others that I thought might be worth checking out. Installation happens in the background and removing the app doesn’t require a trip to the control panel.

A feature that many business users might find helpful is the new syncing with Microsoft online. By signing into the machine with a Microsoft profile your settings sync to your profile. Meaning that anytime you log onto a Windows 8 PC with your Microsoft account your settings and feel will be the same as if you are sitting at your computer at home or the office. Couple this with Skydrive or Google Drive and you can easily access any files and have a positive experience.

Is this a true reinvention of the Windows wheel? A bit. It is exciting to see the functions that Microsoft will build in with the anticipated Windows 8 phones. Yours truly is actually quite interested in those for a few reasons. I like my Smartphone to be an extension of my home computer, which is why I love my Atrix 2. If some of the syncing possibilities come to fruition that Microsoft is going to try to do with new Windows 8 phones, I am going to give them a hard look at the next upgrade time. The success of these phones will really depend on the app store and experience. If Microsoft can mirror Google’s app store, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be a viable option for many people.

Is it a glowing endorsement from me yet? I’d say it is about 50/50 right now. With a new computer it is all about getting familiar with it and I think Windows 8 will have a steep learning curve for some users. That right there kind of troubles me.  We’d love to hear your thoughts on Windows 8 too.

Zombie Apocalypse Survival (2012): The Clothes

Waaaaaaaay back in 2011 we gave you a siiiick series featuring the best-of-the-best in zombie survival gear… from clothes & gadgets to weapons & surveillance, and everything in between.

(Revisit those magical days right HERE)

Well, with the end of the world a mere 2 months away we thought it might be the perfect time to give you an update (with a few of the same items as before… because, quite frankly, they’re still the best). After all… we really have no clue what those crazy Mayans foresaw. Zombie Apocalypse, Switching of the Earth’s poles, Rapture, Snowman Apocalypse, World-wide power outage or maybe it will be the Spice Girls reunion tour… whatever it is, we’re going to do our damnest to make sure you are geared up and ready to tackle them all!!!

Starting with: the Clothes. While putting on something light, movable and easy to pack is a no-brainer… what do you do when you are almost certain you’re going mano y mano with someone for the last can of beans (or so you’re not the next meal)? We wouldn’t be the WGUB if we didn’t get, and test, the best-of-the-best in survival gear! Sidenote – While we are making sure you’re outfitted with the ultimate in survival gear… assuming you have the foresight to prepare… everything below will, of course, be free if you have a crowbar and a few B&E skills after the world has gone to shit. Most everything we’re mentioning can be found in your local Army Surplus store or Sporting Goods shopapalooza.

CTR Choas Adrenaline Multi Tasker Pro

The head… while its rare to sport the perfect dome to go hairless, let’s be honest… surviving an apocalypse isn’t exactly a fashion show. Buzz that hair off!!! Soap and running water will become a rarity pretty soon… luscious locks will get tangled between bony Zombie fingers… and the bugs will be out in force without the Orkin man around! However, if you still can’t do it or need something for the cooler weather… then here are a couple of pretty neat alternatives. #1 – CTR Choas Adrenaline Multi Tasker Pro ($29) designed to keep you cool and protected against the elements with great breath-ability. Ideal for layering under a helmet or by itself (also gives you the element of anonymity if you don’t want people to know who’s out playing ninja) #2 – Buff Headwear ($Various). A bitchen variety of face, neck & head covers depending on your location. With a ton of options for hot weather, cold weather, under-helmet and just all-around lookin’ badass. With built-in UV coverage this is protection personified. Perk… you get to keep that last-man-on-earth desperado look intact. #3 – Ball-cap (Whatever) the main reason for head-gear is to keep your luscious locks out of your face and sweat out of your eye… if all you really need is an old-school trucker cap then so-be-it. But keep in mind that anything the evil undead can grab (ie. the bill of your hat) they will!!!

Your Face! Let’s be real… its pretty likely that the spread of a human ending plague is from either a bite or some goulie’s yummy juices ending up in your face or open wound. Yeah, its gross… but a necessary conversation to have! That being said… you really need to cover up all of those holes on your face if you’re slicing n’ dicing your way through a crowd of zambinos. Hell… maybe it went from 98 & balmy to -5 & snowing and you need to keep your eyes from freezing out of your head. Here are a couple of cool options.

#1 – Zeal Optics Z3 GPS ($550). We choose the Z3 above all others not just because they’re AMAZING goggles (anti-fog, UV, Impact resistant, Polarized, etc.) but also because they have built-in GPS and 16:9 on-screen specs (temp, altitude and way more). Assuming the power isn’t out (or you picked up a solar-charger like we recommended) then these will help you keep track of your location, while protecting that sexy face of yours!!! #2 – Oakley Airbrake Snow ($250) Keep those infected juices out of your eyes (the window to your soul) with these anti-fog pieces of optical badassery. Moisture wicking and anti-fog these are a great option not only because of how light and hi-tech they are… but also because they have a super-quick and easy option to change lenses (called their Switchlock technology). From tinted to High Intensity yellow… you can see clearly and stay protected with ease.

Okay… now the all of the super delicates are covered. Let’s talk about your body. A superior under-armor used by the pro’s behind motor-cross (and easily found at any sports bike shop) is the SixSixOne EVO Pressure Suit Body Armor ($200).With eight different protective pads covering your special places, including an advanced spine protector (in case of falls), large chest plates, hi-tech Lycra Spandex for breathable movement and all with highly movable lightweight materials… this intense hand-to-hand combat armor is perfect for keeping you protected and intact! (Think Batman without all the money). Of course any good armor will have straps that those bastards can grab hold of, so you need an additional layer. The Massif Army Combat Shirt ($170) is the perfect cover. Lightweight and versatile, this ultra-light, flame-resistant top will keep you moving in every way you need!

Something else to keep in mind while wielding your preferred weapons of mass destruction (I almost said murder… but hey, if they’re zombies that thing is already dead) is your hands! Absolutely one of the most important tools you have left. You need to keep them warm, but not too hot… movable, but not exposed… and armored, but not bulky. For this we found the Oakley Factory Pilot Glove ($70). Leather Palm with unobtanium grips on the fingers for a tight hold, Carbon Fiber Knuckle Plating for punching your way free of a death-grip & Airprene four-way stretch joint for flexibility.

Legs. Fighting is always important… but we also have to recognize when to run away! To keep your legs safe and sound we found Tru-Spec XFIRE Tactical Pants ($100). We recommend Flash pants over your typical tactical gear because you never know when you may need to douse the ground with a little gasoline behind you and light’er up as a barrier to gain a little extra distance. It’s the apocalypse people… nobody is going to fight fair! And wear a belt for god sakes. Yes, the fashion police are all dead, but you still need to hold your damn pants up. Do you really want to try to outrun a hoard of brain-munching monsters with your pants falling down? NO!!! I’d rather you feel like Urkel, and live… than bust a sag and be fodder for legions of the undead.

Finally… the Boots! We say boots instead of shoes because you want something that will kick the literal shit out of anyone (ie. steel toed), cover your ankles from those surprise crawlers you didn’t hear or see and wrap up your little piggies that work their hardest to keep your fat ass from sitting still for too long. For this we found the Striker™ II GTX® Side-Zip Non-Metallic Toe ($210). All of the extreme function of a high-end military boot with the everyday use needed to get the hell out of Dodge! The strength of a steel-toe without the weight and heat/cold transfer that actual steel brings, water-proof, oil and slip resistant sole, only 58 oz to keep you from getting tired faster and a side zipper to quickly and easily get on the move… these boots are not only bad-ass, but functional as hell and ready to stomp in some undead heads!!! If it’s good enough for special forces, it’s good enough for the last special force on Earth… you!

Yeah, this might seem like a bit much… but at the end of the day, when you’re kicking ass and taking a body count later (all while keeping your family safe) you can remember back and think “Damn, those WGUB guys were pretty cool to do all that work for us. I wonder if they ever made it or if they became a lunchable for some raging loony”. Well WGUB buddy… the answer is that we’re probably dead, or maybe un-dead. We’re glad we helped, but sadly we didn’t listen to our own advice.

iPad Mini

Apple dropped the much anticipated iPad Mini yesterday, and the whole world had a collective orgasm.  Well, a least all the tech nerds.  But you want to know who didn’t?  This guy.

Don’t get me wrong, I think that the iPad Mini will fit a lot of people’s needs, but what I was really hoping for was an iPad that cost around $200.  The Mini, which is coming in at $329 frankly just isn’t a value to me.  All things equal, I would probably just shell out the extra 180 dollars for a full-sized iPad.  What I was personally hoping for was a 7 inch (or so) table that would compete with the Kindle Fire HD or the Nexus by Google.  Not that Apple needs to compete with them, because clearly Amazon and Google are playing catch up in the table wars.  But if Apple had any kind of killer instinct in business it would have tried to get closer to the 200 dollar mark because it would have been the equivalent of killing the Kraken.

Soap box aside, the iPad Mini is still a pretty neat tablet.  And I am sure that I will get blasted for my comparisons.  The Mini has more memory true, but I call bullshit on that one.  If you are any kind of nerd you have all your media in the cloud so there is really no need for a device with huge storage.  Unless you have a million apps, there really isn’t much need for a tablet with over 8 gigs in my opinion.  Of course I am speaking of the casual user that will use a tablet for entertainment, not professionals that use it for other things.

Either way, just in time for the shopping season, the iPad Mini will be hitting the shelves.  With too many specs to really list you can start the pre-order bonanza beginning on October 26th.
