I once saw a photographer scramble around to finish the shoot as the Sun began to set. Needless to say, everyone had to come back the next day because the natural lighting just wasn’t enough and the photos turned out pretty bad and grainy.
The fragile nature of the traditional piggy bank was meant to force you to save your money until you really needed it, but it also meant you couldn’t count how much you already saved unless you break the thing open.
Time flies by so fast. It seems like it was only yesterday when I was complaining about homework in high school… Or hanging out with friends in college… Or scrambling for my first job interview a few weeks after graduation… The human brain can only remember so much.
Sometimes, you go to a party and end up drinking more than you should have. You probably know better than to drink and drive, so your best bet would be to crash at a friend’s place until you’re sober enough to go home.
A huge number of gamers all around the world live on a steady diet of digital kills, pizza, and caffeine. The problem for a lot of gamers comes when you’re right in the middle of a heated match, you’re hungry, and you don’t want call and talk to the people at the pizza place to order your favorite pie.
A couple of months ago we found out about Instashare, an app that lets you transfer files from an iOS device to an OS X computer and vice versa. Filedrop is a lot like Instashare, but it has a couple of significant features that make it seem like the better of the two.
You know that table top and dresser you’ve been meaning to throw out for the past couple of years now? Someone could actually use that. And those old clocks and broken chairs? Someone out there is willing to take them off your hands and fix it or salvage it for parts.
If you can’t resist showing off to your friends whenever the opportunity presents itself, then you’ll probably enjoy completing the challenges in Showboatr – and boasting about them once you do.
It’s an app that contains a bunch of challenges that you’re supposed to complete, ranging from the typical (like tying a cherry stem into a knot using your tongue) to the weird (like peeling banana with your feet).
You know that expression that people say when they’re really good at something? The one that goes, “Oh, I can do [insert action here] in my sleep.”
Most people who make that claim obviously can’t back it up.
Computer geeks have been using various flavors of 3DMark to benchmark their computers for years. The cool thing about their benchmark suite is that it has visually impressive tests that challenge both the GPU and CPU inside your computer.
If the folks behind Sandboxr have their way, someday you won’t have to wait or hunt for figurines of your favorite game character. You’ll just log in to a website or even a mobile app, pick the character and order a 3D printed statue of it.
Korean developer Delight Room has contributed another weapon in the never ending battle to get us out of bed. Sleep If U Can is an alarm clock app for both iOS and Android devices. It has a mode that requires you to re-take a picture before it shuts down.
Pictures speak a thousand words. A couple more hundred, if they’re really good. When arranged one after the other chronologically, you could even use them to tell your life’s story. Doing so, however, will take a lot of time and patience that you may not have.
