Ingress: The coolest game you can't play (yet)

Today, while on vacation, I received an interesting email from Google. I had finally gotten accepted into the Niantic labs ingress closed beta of the game Ingress. I had completely forgotten about the game except for the app that was installed on my phone. I quickly fired up the app and to my pleasant surprise, the game began. Ingress, if you don’t know, is a massive augmented reality game. You go through the game gathering a resource called XM by physically moving from place to place.

The text is below (hit read more if you don’t see it): […]

TouchPal Keyboard Review – The keyboard you never knew you needed

Lets face it, the default keyboard on android typically sucks. It can either be clunky, difficult to use, or just hard to navigate. The beauty of Android is that unlike iOs, you are not stuck with it. Well, in my time, I have played with many keyboards, some good, some bad, some downright terrible! I will cover some of those at a later time, but for now, I want to cover a keyboard called TouchPal. It has given me hope for the future, and when I wipe my phone, this is one of the first things I install. It’s hard to put into words just how great this keyboard is. Ok, now that I am done gushing, read on my in-depth review.  […]
