Galcon Updates for iOS (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)

December 15th, 2010 · No Comments · webfrost

Galcon gets the retina display treatment and more updates for Galcon in iOS.

http://www.philhassey.com/blog/2010/11/30/adding-retina-multitasking-support-to-my-ios-apps/

I’m looking forward to more Android updates for Galcon, I think it’s a terrific fun game well-suited to the tiny phone screens of mobile devices.

Some chat capabilities such as with Galcon Fusion would be nice as well as better integration with the forum.

What do you think? If you have suggestions of comments regarding Galcon on iOS and Android, please post below.

I think this guy Phil Hassey is pretty neat in that he approaches his projects like fun programming challenges as opposed to a typical mobile game development company. I think it makes his games and projects much for engaging.

Angry Birds Updates for Android

November 9th, 2010 · No Comments · webfrost

Major update released for Angry Birds on the Android.

http://www.rovio.com/index.php?mact=Blogs,cntnt01,showentry,0&cntnt01entryid=46&cntnt01returnid=58

More levels and better compatibility for different devices.

The advent and continued strong support for the Android platform is in my opinion sort of a tipping point where the Android platform may eventually overtake Apple’s formerly considerable “App” lead.

Just a few months ago, when you would search for Angry Birds in the Android Marketplace you would find a couple of garbage apps pretending to be Angry Birds. Now this is at least the third iteration or release of Angry Birds (if you include the beta) in a very short period.

In other Angry Bird Platform News –

This is insane, forget about Android, I’m getting an iPod Touch and using it on the Sprint Network!

This is a game changer for the phone market, iPod Touches will be flying off the shelves. Hopefully Sprint and their resellers can sell the iPod Touch along with the case.

The End Of Inception Leonardo DiCaprio

July 21st, 2010 · No Comments · webfrost

The ending of the Inception movie is a bit mind-scratching as you don’t know if the top falls or keeps spinning. Leonardo uses the top to help keep straight what’s a dream and what’s reality, this way he knows where he is. Normally in a dream you think it’s real, and as dream dwellers or interlopers or trespassers who could themselves be hijacked by another person’s dream it’s important to keep your head on straight.

One question is whether the mother was actually still in a dream or not when she killed herself, it certainly seemed like a dream sequence, although it was also a flashback, so who knows. The movie is worth seeing a few times to get things straight although as the internet-sphere chatter goes you’ll probably end up with as many new questions as solve riddles.

Napster 2.0

July 2nd, 2009 · No Comments · awesome, bittorent, itunes, music, napster

There was something nice about Napster… I’m not an audiophile or even really consider myself a hard-core music fan, but downloading stuff from Napster satisfied a real need… get something for free cheaply. I won’t say it had more appeal than that, and I didn’t really use it all that much, but the feeling that you’re getting some digital stuff — quite reliably and fast — for free was awesome. I don’t get the same feeling with bittorrent, maybe just because it’s so slow and the interface is different. Also, I don’t like web site feeders that direct people into it.

 If anything – iTunes is the Napster 2.0 for me. Of course you have to pay for everything, but it’s a decent interface (could be improved) and very reliable.

Student Who Blew Kiss at Bonny Eagle High School Denied Diploma

June 17th, 2009 · No Comments · denied diploma, student

This is crazy – apparently a boy at his High School graduation was up on stage and blew a kiss to his Mom. The principal sent him back to his seat because the students had agreed to just walk stiffly and not do any gestures like that. The principal was just trying to enforce an orderly graduation ceremony without too much boisterous activity.

Slave is still around?

April 11th, 2009 · No Comments · webfrost

It’s hard to see that there are still slaves around, we have been talking about to treat every person the same. Hope one day we could all think that it’s a shame to treat other people as a slave, but I do know that in some asian countries the men do treat women very badly! We need to have more people to talk about it!
