Ipad Makes its debut at the oscars!

No, Apple didnt win a stature but the sure made themselves to be present in the 82 annual academy awards! Apple debuted their first Ipad ad. Very exiting stuff. The ipad as seen in the commerical is being advertised as a laptop shown in many situations to be used the same way you would a laptop. So why buy an Ipad as opposed to a computer? The touch screen the cheaper price calling out to you? Essentially i think this is for people who dont want a computer they just want something that does the simple things a computer does, email, music, readings, etc. It's so pretty! If apple is good at anything it is marketing themselves. their advertisements sell you with any product. I know they are going to make a bundle off of the Ipad just like everything else. Ipad will be available in stores April 3rd. You can check out the new ipad ad on youtube!

Its funny, I created my Me and had a good time doing it. The other day, my husbands friends were over and happened to see, well., Me! They were dumbfounded. They couldnt believe that the Me itself captured who i am about. My cousin on the other hand, thought I should have gone a completely different direction. his reason was, if you are going to create your self in a virtual reality world go big or go home! Be goth, be a rocker, be a prep! be anything BUT yourself! that got me to thinking of how many people really do express themselves over virtual reality games. Its being able to be someone who you want to be but are to afraid to be in this reality. I never felt the need to really express myself in that way, but I think im going to give it a sot-it can be really freeing i think. I usually create avatars that represent me, in a sense ive have always thought, well its me why would i lie? why would i be someone else? but now, with my cousins input i understand why so many people are turning to games like the sims or even the WII!

Kevin Smith/Twitter

When this story first broke I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe that southwest airlines asked Kevin Smith to get off the plane because he was a safety risk and essentially telling the man he is to fat to have just one seat. what I was even more i shock about is that TWITTER is what broke this story with his tweet blasting the airline. The story spread all over the Internet and local news stations of what occurred between smith and the airline. It is incredible how quickly something travels with just 140 character long tweet. It spread like a wild fire!!! It is mind boggling how quickly that spread. but it did. Southwest airlines must be doing a great amount of damage control, because everyone seems to be on smiths side. there was a way to handle that differently other than kicking him off and making an announcement in front of all the passengers! how embarrassing for smith! You know what the funny part is? I dont even think he is that big!!! I hope he tears them apart, what happened to him shouldn't happen to anyone and the airline should be embarrassed for what they did to him!

2009 engadget awards!

You know, maybe im naive, but I had no idea there was awards for the best and worst technological products of the year. I guess im more into the grammys and Oscars. But thats a completly different blog! The products that won, some are only obvious-mac taking most antcipated product of the year with the tablet and winning for best home entertainment device-the PS3 slim. Some of the products that didnt do so well include the ipod shuffle 3G with worst gadget of the year. This list in very little words sums up all the coolest and hottest gadgets out there. Everything you need to look at in order to have the coolest and hippest stuff is on that list-from cameras, computers, tablets, and cell phones. Engadget knows what they aretalking about im personally interested with what won for best digital camera of the year, the canon EOS MArk IV. It does seem to be a bit bulky but my hobby is photography, I love to take pictures, and this is something to really look into!

Twitter Use Explodes!

Many people have been saying that Twitter's popularity has been declining. WRONG! In reality there has been more Tweets on twitter than ever before. Tweets have reached a record breaking 50 million everyday! Twitter measured over 600 tweets per SECOND-that is alot! in the time it takes you to read this blog over 100,000 tweets have been posted. Twitter launched in 2007 with a mere 5,000 tweets per day-which is nothing compared to the 50 million that is being recorded. In 2008 there were about 300,000 tweets per day and in 2009 there were up to 35 million per day. Facebook is still the most popular social networking device with people updating there statuses by about 60 million per day. Myspace is now a thing of the past. Do you still check your myspace? Myspace fizzled out when facebook took over. I cant help but wonder if facebook and twitter will do the same. there are thousands of social networking sites springing up constantly, who is to say that they wont become a thing of the past? I am personally really surprised at twitters popularity. I mean all it is, is status updates..... It in no way offers as much entertainment and games as facebook does yet it is now the second most popular social networking site. How do you feel about twitter? are you a user?

Let's go to the movies!

Movies are a past time of mine. I love watching film and even television where you are completely taken away by the writing and the cinematography - especially the actors. There is nothing like when an actor takes your breath away by their performance. It is amazing to me how an actor can completely embrace their character and become something or someone completely different. I love it when a movie or a performance makes you think. Bad movies make me so mad i cant stand it! what i cant stand even more are the bad actors who are in them who ruin the movie. We all know the only reason they are there is because they are good looking! Ahhh, gotta love Hollywood! Of course i am guilty of going to see a movie that i know wont be great just because someone i find extremely attractive is in it. anything with Matthew maconahay, tatum channing, mark walhberg I will be there, just because they are so yummy. but that is neither here nor there. There are actors that i will go see their film because i am so taken a back by them. Leonardo dicaprio, johnny depp, daniel day luis, are just a few to mention that i will go to see their movies just because they are that great. I LOVE FILM, I LOVE GOOD ACTORS- Let's go to the movies!!!!!
