New iPod Touch Details

August 30, 2010

Apple is poised to make an announcement Wednesday regarding one or more new products. I thought this would be the right time to tell you what I know about the new iPod Touch.

Colored text indicates edits made after the announcement.

The new iPod Touch will be comparable in size and shape to the iPhone 4, but slightly thinner and with some coloration differences to visually differentiate the two. It is also lighter since it does not need the telephone components.


It comes in various sizes, but more importantly it will be available with or without 3G access. Versions with 3G will also have GPS capabilities.

WRONG! No 3G or GPS version is available.

The A4 processor, the same design used in the iPad and iPhone 4, will be used in order to bolster computing power and lower power requirements. This, coupled with a larger battery, will give the device incredible battery life.

CORRECT! The new iPod Touch boasts of 7 hours of video playback.

A compass and a gyroscope will be in all versions, regardless of whether it is a 3G version or not.

CORRECT! and WRONG! Compasses are not included, but a gyroscope is.

With this iteration of the iPod Touch, Apple finally is adding a camera to the device, a 5 MP sensor capable of 720p video capture as well as still photos. The iMovie app for iPhone will be compatible as well. There will not be a forward facing camera, and FaceTime calls will not be possible using the iPod Touch.

CORRECT! and WRONG! 720p video capture is possible with the 5 MP camera, but a forward-facing camera and FaceTime are included.

The screen incorporates the Retina Display of the iPhone 4.


Can’t wait!

Again, I’m tired, so here’s everything all at once. (What do you know, the internet is a big truck you just dump stuff on!)

Stargate News

deluisepeter011Looks like SciFi (or whoever is in charge over there) is doing something right and releasing Stargate Atlantis on Blu-ray. Actually, it’s just the first and last episodes, but it’s better than nothing I suppose.

Also, Peter DeLuise is apparently coming back to help direct at least one episode in Stargate Universe. You’ll probably recognize him as the guy that played the replacement actor in the episodes Wormhole X-Treme and 200. Or, if you’re a normal person, you won’t.

New xkcd: Statistics is Screwy

Correlation doesn't imply causation, but it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively and gesture furtively while mouthing 'look over there'.

Make Money and Get Free Stuff

March 2, 2009

This really is pretty cool. Hopefully you have been familiar enough with my site up until now to know that I’m not BS’ing here. I found an awesome site that will let you make money and get free gaming/computer stuff at the same time in exchange for mindless clicking. Here’s how it works:

  1. Advertisers make ads with forms to fill out.
  2. Filling out the forms gives the referrer money.
  3. This site refers you to the ads.
  4. They get money.
  5. They buy you free stuff with it.

The awesome thing is this: the site knows that the advertisers are all scumbags, so they give you tips on filling out the forms. If you get a form filler you can fill out about 30 forms per hour or so. Each one gets you a certain number of points, which you then use to get games, consoles, computer equipment, cell phones, and more.

On top of all that, you also can get money, and here’s how: you get a referral link that you can give to your friends, and if they sign up, you automatically get 20% of whatever they get each time they fill out an offer, but in actual cash. It doesn’t subtract from what they get (they won’t even know it is happening), it just means you get free cash automatically. Get some really active friends on there and you can get tons of $$$!

Anyway, it is a good idea to use a referral link to sign up, because then people can benefit even more from this, and hopefully someone will return the favor and use your link when they sign up. With that in mind, take a look at the site and if you decide that getting free stuff isn’t so bad then totally sign up.

P.S. I will leave comments unmoderated on this post so you can all see the feedback (that way you know I’m not scamming you or anything).

Knock Knock!

February 27, 2009

Now you can see through your peephole without putting your nose to the door, and even record activity outside 24/7! This neat little device wirelessly saves data onto an SD card in a handheld device that lets you see and record through a peephole. Now even people who cover up your peephole before knocking can be identified: just rewind and play it back, and you can see them before they cover up the peephole. Just $200 at ThinkGeek.

Peekaboo, I see you!

Peekaboo, I see you!

Of course, you can also put this in a wall or on a shelf or inside a teddy bear, but we won’t talk about that ;).
