Zombicide Survivor Helper App Review

Zombicide Survivor Helper App Review

We love playing Zombicide with our friends. The game supports up to six players (we’ve played with nine players after modifying things a bit). The game is a big hit. One of the things we don’t like about the game is managing the character cards. There are two big reasons to interact with your character’s […]

Get a better ETA with Glympse

“When will you be over?” “Uh … anywhere between 1PM and 5:45PM.” “…” This is the kind of conversation I had with my friends for the last twenty years. I am terrible with directions, and not very good at estimating time or distances. Coupled with my fear of being late this means that I usually […]

Microsoft’s WindowsRT Tablet Pricing

I was pretty excited when Microsoft’s Windows Surface tablet product line was announced. The features sounded like what I’ve been looking for since I owned a slate Windows XP tablet made by Motion Computing in 2004. The ports and capabilities seemed halfway between a power user’s laptop and an Android tablet. External storage, media connection, […]

STX Dehydra 600W Dehydrator Review

Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Android Devices Review

I am a huge fan of the 7″ tablet form factor. Small enough to fit in a back pants pocket, thigh cargo pocket, or a coat hand pocket, smaller tablets like the Nook, Fire, Nexus 7, or Tab are accessible in just about any situation. If you carry a bag or a purse you can […]

What Will It Take to Get Draw Something Back On Track?

What Will It Take to Get Draw Something Back On Track?

About six weeks ago, I wrote about Draw Something, a collaborative drawing game for the Android and iOS operating systems. At that point, Draw Something had just exploded in popularity. Users were creating 3000 drawings per second, there were over 36 million players, and the makers of the game, OMGPOP, was just purchased by online […]
