Google announced that to commemorate this record number of downloads it has partnered with a number of Android app developers to offer a number of apps at very reasonable prices, an understatement given that these apps will be made available for only 10 cents.

Todayâ€™s teenagers travelling abroad have many more tools available than the backpacking generations that came before. Countless apps can keep them from getting lost, getting on the wrong train or saying the wrong thing in foreign language. Parents rest a little easier when their young adult children wander off into the wilderness. Before you send them off on teen tours in the wild blue, make sure they have the tools they need.
Mobile Phone Travel Basics
It starts with checking on your phone’s service plan. Some plans charge per kilobyte and will run up a bill into the tens of thousands if you do not configure your plan for international use. When you ask your phone provider about their options, read the fine print.
AT&Tâ€™s International Calling Plan only includes some countries and caps you at 20MB of data use. Most pictures and videos are at least 2MB, so you would run through that very quickly if you were depending on your apps abroad. To safeguard yourself against piling on obscene fees, ask a rep to give you the steps you need to shut off your network service on your device and only access your email from hotel or cafÃ© internet services. You can use all your apps and make Skype phone calls through whatever Wi-Fi is available. You can easily reconnect to your network whenever you would like. [Read more…]
These 4 fun apps for your iPhone will bring out the photographer in you. They each have something special to offer so get all of them. Youâ€™ve got plenty of memory to spare and in a pinch you can always stash them in the Clouds with that spiffy new iCloud thing. Sometimes the best innovation is to rediscover the past. A favorite old book of mine, called the Power of Will has a helpful rule to follow-â€˜Overlook nothing because it is old and approve nothing because it is new.â€™

The worst thing about living in the twenty-first century, besides all of that other stuff in the newspapers, is that all of the media is so perfect. Real time this; digitally edit that, who needs it? As Shirley MacClaine exclaimed in one of her popular dance numbers, â€œphooey!â€™
Perfection is so boring, whatâ€™s left to aspire to? Thatâ€™s why weâ€™re so lucky that 8mm Vintage Camera is here to the rescue. Take that disgustingly perfect video that you shot and drag it through the dust to scratch it up. Go back in time to your favorite retro era.
Differing film types, lenses, looks, audio effects, herky jerkies and more add to the time dilation. [Read more…]
