Don’t Get Lost


The exact opposite of last week’s post, this time the goal is to not get lost. The instructions are pretty basic and easy to follow.  The hardest part is waiting for the street view photos to load (you’ll be doing alot of “driving”…). I played it and ended up in some eastern European country based … Continued

The Pokemon Master


Google has a long history with April Fools pranks.  In fact, their most famous one (which wasn’t a joke at all, but seemed like one at the time), Gmail,  is turning 10 today. That’s not to bad if you ask me. However, this year, Google may have outdid themselves.  Integrating Pokemon with Google Maps, and … Continued



In case you haven’t heard, the price of a single share of stock in Google has broken $1,000.  It actually happened on Friday, but I wanted to wait it out the weekend and make sure it wasn’t a fluke thing.  Such a big difference then what it was a few years ago, as a company … Continued

The Google Doodles


I gotta say, for a 15mb gif, that loads impressively fast.  Or maybe it’s just deceptive in that it’s so many individual frames it doesn’t look like it. Anyway, Daniel Stuckey over at Motherboard spent over 10 hours compiling this 1,809 frame masterpiece.  Luckily the size of those images are all the same (usually I would think), … Continued

Google Glass Stadium


A few weeks ago Bon Jovi played some shows at Met Life Stadium.  I went to one of them, (sadly not the one above).  On Saturday show a kind person offered the use of their Google Glass explorer kit. I’ve been loosely following the Google Glass phenomenon for awhile now, but until now I haven’t … Continued

VHS – Forever


In honor of the the 57th birthday of the VHS, YouTube has a new special mode on select videos.  Unfortunately, you have to go to the actual site to see it.  You might be thinking 57 years, that’s along time.  Anyway, go watch All Your Base, the way you’ll recount it to your children. {VentureBeat|YouTube}

Google Reader to be Killed


As of July 01, 2013 Google Reader will be no more.  This is some of the saddest news I have ever read on the internet.  Based on this Reddit thread, I am not alone in disappointment. Look at these stats: Damn impressive. Or, on second thought, pretty misleading.  Since the items I’ve clicked is a better … Continued



So I’ve been using Google+ for the past week, and so far, I love it. The interface is one of the most gorgeous I have ever used.  It’s slick, fast, interactive, and modern.  Everything Facebook is lacking.  The Circles feature is the best idea for sharing information with all your friends and people you’ve ever … Continued

Life Sized Pac-Man


Google Sightseeing found this pretty amazing street sized Pac-Man game.  You can go to the coordinates here, and cruise around the game board for yourself.  This group of dedicated (kids), even created all the ghosts, and fruit.  It’s hard to tell what the drawings were made out of, if I had to guess, it’s chalk, … Continued

Operation Neptune


Or, as it’s more commonly known, D-Day. Usually I do a nice long post about the history of it, or I’ll go into an alternate history or something.  But not today.  Today I read this really nice post about it, complete with pictures!  It’s on Google Sight Seeing, and it’s worth the read.  It’s also … Continued
