No Storm? BlackBerry PlayBook, The iPad Killer?

How's It Hanginnnn,

          So, that storm, Tropical Storm Nicole, pretty much just walked right past Florida. We got like 1/4 inch of rain, that's about it. It's upsetting because the nice cool weather turned into disgusting humidity.
          On another note, RIM (Research In Motion), announced the BlackBerry PlayBook. What they call the first "Professional Tablet," on the market. It's going to feature a 7" LCD display, capable of resolutions up to 1024x600, a 1ghz Dual Core processor, 1gb of RAM, and a  3MP front-facing camera for video conferencing, and a 5MP rear facing camera for pictures. Other features will include the new OS made by QNX, a company RIM purchased earlier. It's webkit browser supports full 10.1 flash, and it will also have a MicroUSB and MicroHDMI out.
          All in all it seems like a great, wonderful, powerful tablet, probably the best that's been announced. Unfortunately, we have no release date, no price, and no talk on one of the most important things, battery life. With a dual core processor you can only imagine that the battery would be draining faster than it's competitors, but would it be worth it for the extra power? Would you still prefer an iPad, if so, why? Just because it's an Apple product?

It's a Beautiful Day...For a Hurricane.

What's Crackin www
For those that don't know, I live in Florida, the hurricane state. Right now we're getting a nice tropical storm and the weather outside at this very moment is actually beautiful. The temperature dropped probably ten or fifteen degrees and it's not raining for the time being, so it is great. It's pretty windy, but nothing we can't handle. Oh, it's starting to pour now, into the pocket goes the BlackBerry, back inside goes the Jared.

Cya internet!

Halo: Reach Status: Completed, T-Mobile Charging For SMS Services

Greetings Interwebz,
      So last time I wrote (which was a while ago, sorry), I said I had purchased Halo Reach, and I just today beat the campaign. It was honestly one of the most amazing campaigns I had ever experienced. It kept me wanting more, and I was actually a little bit upset when it was over. There is however another level AFTER the credits, which was pretty fun. You simply get attacked by hordes of NPC Covenant and when you die it brings you to a scene that links back to the beginning of the game. It was really a great experience, I suggest it to anyone who owns or plans on owning an Xbox, especially with Bungie handing the torch over to Microsoft.            

      In other news, T-Mobile is now said to start charging for SMS services. These services SHOULD include things like Facebook, Twitter, ChaCha, kgb, and other services that would fall in to place. They wouldn't be charges towards the user, but rather to the providing company. However, T-Mobile said the fees would be waived to Facebook and Twitter. Executives of the other companies weren't too happy about this since it seems like T-Mobile is singling out companies that they want and don't want.

     Anyways Interwebz, Speak To Ya Soon!

Sup Interwebz

Yo Interwebz, What's Crackin!
It's been a while, I know. I Apologize. I did in fact buy Halo Reach, and I must say, it is pretty epic. I'm yet to put down my Xbox controller. The levels are intense, the guns are epic. It's just a great game. It's something I would suggest all with an Xbox buy. Call of Duty: Black Ops is going to have to wait I guess. Halo is something that just seems ever expanding (Even though this is Bungie's last game in the franchise), Call of Duty always just seems like the same game over and over again. Halo is something I feel I could play forever. Anyways, Thanks for reading Guys. Peace!

Halo Reach, kgb and ChaCha Now?

So, Halo Reach came out, I haven't purchased it yet, but I'm seriously considering it. It seems like it's going to be one of the most epic games yet. The trailers are really intense for it. Anybody buy it? Was it Worth It?

Also, in my last post, I spoke about ChaCha, the service that answers questions for free when you text them (242-242). Well today I applied for a job at kgb. It's a service very similar to ChaCha, but they actually charge you per question. (542-542). Anyone ever used it? Did you have a good experience with it?

2010 MTV VMAs, Working for ChaCha - 242242

Heylo Interwebz,

     Tonight is the night of the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Anyone gonna be watching? Personally I'm excited to see Linkin park perform. I'm really curious who is going to win what.

    In other news, I recently applied and tested for a job as a guide at I started working today and I have to say, it's actually a whole lot of fun. It's also improving my searching skills, so that's good too. ChaCha, for those of you who don't know, is a text/call answer service. So basically you can text 242242 (or call 800-2ChaCha) and ask a question, and somebody will look it up on the internet and answer text you an answer within a couple of minutes. It's really simple to ask a question, and the best part is, it's free. Check it out.

   Have a good night everybody. I'll be watching the VMAs, will you?

Remembering - September 11th

Hey interwebz,
I was sitting here today thinking of something to post about, and could not, for the life of me, think of anything to post about. Afterwards, it hit me, and I was like, "Oh, wow, it's September 11th." So here it is, my post, memorializing those lost, and those who put their lives on the line to save others, on September 11th. I hope none of you lost anyone on that day, and my wishes go out to everyone who did lose someone. If anything though, you can say that September 11th was the one day you actually felt like a member of one nation, the greatest nation (no offense meant to others), but it was personally, one of the only moments I felt like Americans broadcasted and received a signal of unity.
Have a good day everyone.
