Sep 22, 2013   |    #3idiots    #birthday    #john    #maxwell    #leadership    #lessons   

As you know (or may not know), I recently celebrated my 18th birthday. Lol. After some internalization and retrospection I came up with this long list that sums up the most of the important things I’ve learned. I’m sharing it with you guys in the hopes that you may pickup a thing or two. Sharing is caring, right? So here it goes. Ready? 30 - Prioritization is very important. It’s ok to have a lot...

UBUNTU EDGE – NEXT GENERATION MOBILE TECHNOLOGY

Jul 25, 2013   |    #android    #mobile    #ubuntu   

Have a chance to support the next generation in mobile technology! Ubuntu is crowd sourcing their newly designed ‘Ubuntu Edge’ handset that will boast the latest hardware and will run both Ubuntu and Android. The clincher for me is the seamless transition from a Mobile phone to a PC (plug it into a HDMI enabled TV/Monitor and sync a bluetooth keyboard and/or mouse). I’ve...

MAGIC 2014 DUELS OF THE PLANESWALKERS – AN EASY WAY TO UNLOCK CARDS

Jul 9, 2013   |    #android    #cardgames    #gameguides    #ipad    #iPhone    #magicthegathering    #steam    #videogames   

If you have been playing Magic 2014 Duels of the Planeswalkers (or even with the 2013 version) you know that to fully unlock a deck, you have to win 30 times for each deck (unlock 1 card at a time) or pay $0.99 for each deck you want to unlock instantly. I’d rather battle (and enjoy) for all those unlockable cards than pay money for them. But grinding will be less frustrating if you can...

Jun 28, 2013   |    #android    #cardgames    #ipad    #iPhone    #magicthegathering    #steam    #videogames   

[WARNING: Image heavy!] Ah yes, Magic 2014 (for all platforms) is here! I previously owned and reviewed the 2013 (iPad version) last year. It was a lot of fun even though I encountered some problems with my saved games. This year, I opted for the Steam version because I use my laptop more than my iPad now and I wanted to try gaming with it.
