anonymous asked:

would anyone be interested in a sort of not-so-distant futuristic (think somewhere in the 2020s-2070s, maybe a little later) sort of site dealing with things like andoids, advanced technology, anti-android organizations, some androids/people wanting to take over, different class divides, etc. etc. etc. w/ the entire world available to post threads in? might be leaning towards a slightly alternate universe concerning the earlier timeframe but it all depends on what folks might like best!

I'm too easily entertained.

Last night at happy hour, I asked Emily (You know, my new robot assistant) what sound a rooster makes.

You see, I had tested her with chicken on my drive over and she performed just great. But not with rooster.

Oh, she knows what sound it makes, however she doesn’t know how to stop making it. So in this restaurant, my very loud phone proceeded to cock-a-doodle-doo for several minutes. First I tried telling her, “Emily, stop.” I’m sure that looked totally normal. Then, my friend tried to call me to make it stop. So then, my very loud phone was cock-a-doodle-dooing and playing a lovely ringtone for everybody to enjoy.

As I was smothering my phone, smiling nervously and trying to shut my phone off as quickly as possible, some middle-aged guy about 10 feet away looked at me and said, “Excuse me, but I’m trying to enjoy my time here, can you stop that?”

As I started to apologize profusely and tell him that I was really trying to get this thing off, he breaks into a big smile and says, “I’m totally kidding. Just thought I’d give you a hard time.”

What a nice guy. He made me feel like I wasn’t the bane of everyone’s existence in that place.

So, to end this story, I’m never asking Emily again what sound an animal makes. At least out in public. How embarrassing. Thanks, Em. 

In other Emily news, she has told me that the fastest way home is ‘time travel’ and that she sensed some sarcasm in my voice when I was talking to her last night. She also woke me up at 6:30 am today like I asked her to and has texted my mom some messages for me. Those were all wins!

I neeeeeeed my boyfriend home. I am now entertaining myself with my phonebot. The next stage will likely be increased crafting for my cat. I bet she’d look good in a knitted sweater.                         …kidding…?

Come home boyfriend!

Had a Great Idea for an Android/iPhone App Today

The Fitblr app would convert scanned images (or bar codes) of nutritional information

External image
into something actually useful for people - a pie graph of macro-nutrients or some other format so people (especially people trying to be healthy) can better understand what they are putting in their mouths. 

What do you think fitblrs?

membuat yang jauh jadi deket, yang deket malah jadi jauh..
  • *situasi, di lobby kampus dimana gw ngliatin temen gue pacaran.
  • *prolog, temen gue imron (selanjutnya disebut im) punya cewe namannya kanya (selanjutnya disebut K) dimana si imron ini tipikal cowo yang "geek" banget, dan demen ngoprek. semua yang bisa diinstall ulang dia coba buat install ulang, termasuk henphone androidnya (galaxy ace). sedangkan cewenya tipikal cewe yang gaul gila, serta menjungjung tinggi azas 3B (blackberry, behel dan Belah tengah).
  • gw yang duduk cuma berjarak 1 meter dari merka mendegar dengan jelas sekali percakapan itu...
  • im : nya, kamu udh makan?
  • k : udh (sambil tangan tetap sibuk ngutak ngutik BB nya)
  • im : kamu kok sibuk banget sih sama BB, ada apa?
  • k : ada macem-macem, mention-an sama si ipul. Bbm-an sama yosef Ym-an sama tantri. (dijawab dengan tangan dan mata terus ke BB, tanpa memperdulikan imron)
  • im : oh.. (dengan muka bete)
  • nah gw ngeliat temen gue si "im" dgituin gw samperin...
  • gw : ron, dicuekin nih yee hahaha :D
  • im : ah diem lo..!!
  • gw : dih sewot, woles aja kali..
  • gw : emg enak punya cewe yang beda "platform" makannya lo install ulang aja otak cewe lo.
  • im : tau nih sebenernya gw dianggep apa sih sm dia, kok lebih asik sama yang jauh padahal ada gw yang deket disini (dengan intonasi nyindir si kanya)
  • k : makannya pake BB dong, kamu sih malah beli android
  • gw : lo juga salah nya' udah tau ada cowo lo, masih aja terus sibuk sama BB. emg lo gak nganggep dia ada?? ternyata BB bisa bikin orang jadi autis ya??
  • im : iya bikin yang jauh jadi deket, yang deket jadi dijauhin...
  • gw : wah kalo udh jadi emosi gini gw gak ikutan deh *ngeloyor cabut
  • *epilog setelah hari itu sebulan kemudian si imron beli BB juga, dan kalo gw ngelewatin lobby kadang ada mereka yang tetep asik sendiri-sendiri tanpa memperhatikan pasangannya. kasihan....
Wat ze hier goed doen, deel 1

Aangezien Sas regelmatig wat post over Singapore, het shoppen, eten e.d. gooi ik het over een andere boeg ;-) Ik zal jullie wat meer vertellen over de zaken die ze hier in Singapore goed regelen.

Auto’s zijn nergens zo duur als in Singapore, gemiddeld zit er tussen de 100-140% belasting boven op de originele auto prijs(!). Wat ze dan wel weer goed regelen is het openbaar vervoer en taxi’s, beide zijn erg goed te betalen en erg goed geregeld. Ondanks dat er erg veel taxi’s rijden, is er rond de spits of als het regent moeilijk om een taxi te krijgen. Gelukkig zijn er handige apps!

OTA Gingerbread update brings unlocked boot loader for Moto Atrix. Release doves now

I often question the decisions I make about tech that I buy. Well, I will always go with my gut after this announcement. I purchased the atrix back in February in case you’re wondering I have been second guessing this decision. 

With an unlocked boot loader I can literally remove all aspects of Moto Blur. That’s right, I can have pure stock Android on my AT&T smart phone. This calls for a celebration. You bring the beer i’ll bring the 2.3.3 stock Android OS.


Free App Friday: TwitchTV

Device: iDevices & Android

A Double P Review: Twitch has finally updated their app for mobile devices and it looks great! I actively avoid the previous iteration because it was a chore to use and looked like nonsense.

Nowadays it seems like everyone is streaming and I don’t see signs of it slowing down anytime soon. Hell, I might even start streaming soon. I’ll will at least have an option to watch some live matches via this app on my lunch break. As always, the app is free and available for iOS and Android platforms.
