Latitude in Action

The other day we decided to check out a new (to us) sushi joint/bar called Sushi Creek, which was awesome (get a "Wise Surprise"....oh man). I have digressed, the wife was already working on that end of town and decided she would meet us (the third member of our bike riding team and I) at the restaurant. (Are you ready for the awesomeness because here it comes) Once she got there, she called me to let me know and I whipped out my phone and looked for her on Latitude. Once I found her, I just clicked on her name and hit "Directions". It was awesome! She uses a Blackberry with no GPS so I was very impressed with how accurate her results were. Even better, while she was waiting on us she wanted to know if we were close so she checked her Latitude and saw us in the same spot as her. She was all "WTF" and then turned around and BAM we were standing right there, FRIGGEN AWESOME!

TP Pugs

I looked up from eating my dinner only to see the following. By the way, because I try to be green, I just rolled it all back up onto the roll, it fit nicely!

Man Rules

Surprisingly Heather forwarded this to me in an email. It has been a round for a while but it is nice to be reminded, and even nicer to know that Heather knows her place in the world, the man's world, sucka. These are our rules!  Please note.. These are all numbered '1 '  ON PURPOSE!  1. Men are NOT mind readers.  1. Learn to work the toilet seat.  You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.  We need it up, you need it down.  You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.  1. Sunday sports It's like the full moon  Or the changing of the tides.  Let it be.  1. Shopping is NOT a sport.  And no, we are never going to think of it that way.  1. Crying is blackmail.  1. Ask for what you want.  Let us be clear on this one:  Subtle hints do not work!  Strong hints do not work!  Obvious hints do not work!  Just say it!  1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.  1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solvin…

Foiled

Transcrcipt of a chat I had earlier. Only the names have been changed to protect the snarky (also profanity was edited). 5:01 PM me: get off early today? other guy: yeah. me: bought into latitude eh... other guy: or maybe i just set my address to home.... me: lol other guy: you'll never know could be at a strip club 5:02 PM me: did i leave my coffee mug on the table there? other guy: the beautiful red head just sat on something, but it doesn't look like a coffee cup 5:03 PM me: HAHAHA.....damnit, thought for sure that would work...

Android Market Comment of the Week

So today a Developer by the name of Scott Weston resealed an application called "Flash" in the Android Market.  A little history, ever since the market came out people have been using the comment section (of other applications) to request/demand the apps they want, one of these is Flash (the player). Needless to say, when an app titled "Flash" showed up in the market, people were excited. "Flash" is an AWESOME picture of a slightly chubby Flash (the comic book hero) with sweet original TV show music and if you hit the menu button, the background changes color!! The comment section for this app has mixed reviews some people laughing and others very upset. But, there was one comment which I feel covers so much more... it was left by a "P3T3R" and reads as follows: "@dev: thanks 4 the laugh! @dumfuks: if u don't know how to take this as a total joke, then you need a friend, not a G1... Don't be so chris-brownish..." Awesome. As you can …

No Peanut Butter Jelly Time

I am doing a little public service, and no it is not court ordered.  As most of you know, people are dropping dead everywhere from eating peanut butter.  Below I have embeded The FDA Peanut-Containing Product Recall widget. "The FDA Peanut-Containing Product Recall widget allows you to browse the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) database of peanut butter and peanut-containing products subject to recall. This database makes it easier for you to determine whether any of the products you have at home are subject to recent recalls, and will be updated as new information becomes available." (cdc.gov) You all can thank me for saving your lives later...

New Voicemail!

**Warning** Some of the following voicemail contain language which may be inappropriate for younger listeners. Blogger discretion is advised. I found out my GrandCentral account allows me to set up specific voicemail greetings for anyone I wish. After finding this out I left one for my wife to hear anytime she gets my voice mail. I thought it was a nice gesture, here is what she thought:  The Yeti and I have G1's and like to keep each other informed when either of us finds an interesting application that the other person might enjoy. Recently I received such a call to inform me about a cool application that allows you to play old school NES on your phone. Here is the voicemail I received: How come everyone feels the need to insult me at the beginning of a voicemail? It is not a good way to get me to look for your wallet. How about some better voicemail? Just click the "call link" at the bottom of the page and you will be connected for free! (or just dial 520 366 8695)

Google Latitude

Damn, Eric... he wins twice... for finding this AWESOME new Google app, Google Latitude. Latitude lets you see where your friends are and what they are up to (but only if they want you to).  Unlike Loopt, which I have been using for a while now, Latitude does not require a GPS phone and can be used from you iGoogle page.  Try it out, here is the link: http://www.google.com/latitude/intro.html Here's the complete list of things you can do using Latitude: "Everything about Latitude is opt-in. You not only control exactly who gets to see your location, but you also decide the location that they see. For instance, let's say you are in Rome. Instead of having your approximate location detected and shared automatically, you can manually set your location for elsewhere — perhaps a visit to Niagara Falls. Since you may not want to share the same information with everyone, Latitude lets you change the settings on a friend-by-friend basis. So for each person, you can choose to share …

A Home Divided

I must start by saying I love my wife, she rocks (even though she wakes me up everyday with that damn channel 3 news). Recently, as in today, she decided she would start her own blog. She had been kicking around the idea for some time and finally decided to take the plunge. I was SO happy and proud of my little wife....then I saw her blog, brazenly titled, "The Better Half; of Tenkely.Net". OK, so that's a pretty controversial and bold statement to make in the title of a blog, but I will see if she has any evidence to support this 'theory'. I scrolled to her opening post, it was riddled with inaccuracies and 'crazy talk' (that's the technical term). Claims like, "He is... goofy..." and "He blogs about...crap..." Seriously?!?!? Where is the evidence, the supporting documentation? There isn't any because it doesn't exist. I don't blog about crap, that would be inappropriate and disgusting. I also am definitely not "g…
