Ooooooh those Apps are SHINY! (Apple iPhone)

Hoping to land a new job with a nice comfortable middle income, and also realizing even my small bags are now large enough for non-tiny phones (was part of my quest), and well—-a phone is a phone based on its features, but there are always PINK cases…….so…..

Well we’ve all been seeing the awesome iPhone commercials with all those Apps, those awesome apps like … a level! OK that may sound silly to you, but the iPhone apps offer more than something for everyone. The newest and coolest Apps would ensure a better quality of life for everyone who can afford it, and if you can, I think it’d be totally worth the bills!

So now … I want to get an iPhone! (With a nice leather pink tight-fitting case, thank you). Do you want one as well? Check out the recent ads…

Do you want one now?

Sharp Car! Stylish, Purple & Custom MP3 Horn!

This smooth, sleek, ultra stylish and luxurious—ultra violet car is not only snazzy, it’s fit for a queen! Well, a princess… ok women! Well, rich women. (Princess and queen again, then?) Anyway, not only does it come in shiny purple, but the horn sound is customizable, enabled to play an mp3.

Purple Dimora car

Material girl?

Gold digger?

Glamorous by Fergie?

A Prince song?

Just please, no Paris Hilton music! The stars may be blind (yeah right) but most humans’ ears are not deaf … one’s likely to annoy many, even if this is a rare ride to catch.

And oh yes, the Sedan is on sale for $2 million from DiMora.

Jeopardy Geeked Out – Leet Style

Fun tidbit. Yesterday’s Jeopardy geeked out, or perhaps, “leeted” (or l33ted? ok I’m not a “member”) out with one of their “clues”.

To paraphrase:

What search engine is spelled out in this “leet” language: 600673 (.com) ?

The answer after this…

Stylus that Works for iPhone & iPod Touch

Cell Phone Trends – Is Red the new…PINK?!

Pantech DuoOh no, say anything but… is pink out in the mobile world? Sure, T-Mobile (Mr. Pink themselves) and Verizon, Sprint… have great new phones in pink (stay tuned for some of these)… but AT&T (a bit of a leader since the iPhone) only has slightly older models in the shade(s).

With them, and others too (eek!) what abounds is a sea of red. Is red really the new chic color for girls…huh?

Well if you’re a pink warrior like I, you don’t need to fret whatever your carrier is…. there are usually pink snug-fitting cases/faceplates for at least the most popular or coolest models or shapes. (And the shape/opening style is one actually more important feature, thanks to availability of covers, yes I must admit).

Example, this transparent hot pink case for the (AT&T) Pantech Duo from EliteExtreme.

So you shouldn’t delay when in need of upgrading your old phone. (Older models are faster obsolete with the new 3G, in my speculation.) Find your best “fit” and browse for some fitting & flattering shaded case. Who knows, you might prefer a black & white polka dot cellie instead! There’s a world of imagined possibilities out there. Phones can be like clothes. (And that’s why this blog exists.)

Paris Hilton Custom Bought Ultimate Barbie Dream Car

Paris Hilton pink Bentley

paris-hilton-pink-bentley_pose-front paris-hilton-pink-bentley_interior

So you know we girls like to treat ourselves with one great present each holiday season? Well Paris Hilton is like the ultimate girly-girl, so hers would be pink (awesome, of course) and even more great for this blog is its a big fantastic gadget – a car. Paris Hilton custom ordered herself an early Christmas present of a pink Bentley. Complete with pink/black interior, tricked out speakers in the trunk (I never understood that actually) and even oh-so glitterati-fab tinted/protective windows to prevent paparazzi snap flash-and-crash. (Oh well that’s actually necessary, right? Paris wants to drive well, now.)

Check out a video of Miss Hilton unabashedly gushing over her lavish and carefree expenditure – some girls just really do want to have fun, eh? C’est la trés rare vie!

Every girl has the pink Barbie Corvette, huh? (And Paris even upgraded to a Bentley.) I remember I had a pink Cadillac – so classic, but yep, I was the normal girl with Barbies who rode Fords. Le Sigh!

(OK OK I also had a little red speedster sports car, but I’m too girlie to remember what “brand” it was! Oh! and I had…….)

“Green” MacBook? Apple.com Leaves us Green with Envy

This new Mac Book looks great, mix the Mac Book green with pro and make it small (13″ width, widescreen would be nice) and it could be my next computer.

It’s a good thing the economy is the way it is though, because there is no mention of this machine on Apple.com whatsoever. Or any sign of it being purchasable in the near future. No “Froogle” or news jumps out at me. (And I’m demanding and require that for it to count as marketed.)

The worst thing is that Apple.com’s search doesn’t make any sense, they promote random movies when I search for what should be Apple products. Is this some lame iTunes tie-in? That’s just what it is, lame.

Add a page for every product and/or ad you serve to TV Apple, god, I thought you were smarter than that!

At least(???) we can enjoy the above ad, but it’s kind of like the fairy tale that is the rest of our hopes for bettering our planet. It’s not like I don’t trust Barack Obama, it’s just that well, it’s lame duck season, and unfortunately that doesn’t mean hunting.

A foot note, kudos to YouTube for their new video embed. Not only does it work well with WordPress, but it matches almost any site, which is so tempting now that there are so many other embeddable video sites! I just wish the Google affiliation with it could fit into my layouts (sidebars) like these vids do my posts!! (However we can go straight to YouTube to get Google code for single videos or multiples, so although it won’t fit most sidebars, it’s a great step!) (Of course, getting revenue from embedding YouTube videos into posts is also huge incentive!)

*Update* Vote for this story on these social / “green” sites here:

Etsy.com Finds Collection of Unique Geek Gifts

How is a girl to know that the same website about which she posted last night will do its own blog feature on geekitude goodies the next morning? Hmm. On to the fun. The products in Etsy’s gifts for one’s “beloved” geek are quite original; nothing I’d really seen before. Here are my two highlights, but I personally feel I must amend that these products are much more for brainiac nerds than geeks (according to my terms). But still, fun!

Elements of Structural Crochet
Structural Crochet examples
It took me a few minutes to figure this out, hint: look at “increase” and “decrease”. ;-)

Math on a Chalkboard Coasters
Math on Chalkboard coasters
At first view, these freak me out with thoughts of aluminum scratching on slate with that #1-hated sound … but they’re really just printed! Whew… *still admittedly nervous* ;-)

Below the original article there’s a collection including even more nerd-appealing handmade products. Check it out!

Tetris Clutch Purse

I may be a computer whiz now, and though I’m generally a fast learner, some technologies take me a while. Things like cell phones did, and now it’s the Facebook (mostly the new ver.) that gets me with its bugs and general lack of untuitive flow – yes, I blame FB. Anyway, one thing I just can not be good at is video games. Dexterity and quick reacting? Leave those to the boys and non-magpies, I guess.

Tetris clutch

However one game I always loved was Tetris, and maybe it is a generally more girl-friendly game, because here it is – on a purse. :-)

Adorable. Made with felt and selling for $19 by Lightning Strike @ Etsy.com. I’d say this should take off onto a whole product line!

French Accent Character in Re-Captcha?

When Language comes into play(ed with) on the World Wide Web… is the functionality of code lost in translation?

Stupidity wins another battle in our society, unfortunately. I just found the word, “crêpes” in a ReCaptcha box. Yes, it displayed the character “ê“. Sensing it wouldn’t even accept the correct visual – and correct spelling – nevermind only accept it and not “crepes” completely instead – I hit refresh.

Are you fabbing kidding me???!

Educational Tip: This accent is called “Circumflex” in English translation; “Circonflexe” in French. It is also used in other languages. In this case, it is placed above an “E” (or more precisely for “crêpes”, a lowercase “e”), although on PCs it is typed or “pasted” complete with the corresponding letter.

It seems one just can’t win! Either be incorrect doubly and pass, or put in extra effort (most wouldn’t) and be marked as a spammer??? I really don’t expect ReCaptcha to think people would know/type the alt code or copy from their character maps (Windows). I don’t want that type of security enforced. In fact, I depise most CAPTCHAs, because I usually cannot read them! ReCaptcha is better, for at least they use words that are often real (I did recently see what looked like a name though, ironically a name similar in spelling to a celebrity related to the article on the page, hmmm) and they have a decent refresh method (some others force a loss of comment).

*Update: I now realize this depends upon the scripting and not some lazy ethic. Sure, the site owners and ReCaptcha company may never want to force people to open up their Character Map or learn alt codes, and yet the code may force most to get this wrong – even those like I who would assume what they’re asking, yet didn’t refresh, like I.*

I also contacted the company, informing them of the “innapropriate word”. I do have hope that this is a company eager to fix such a troubling issue. I will post a follow-up to this entry if they respond in an interesting manner. *No response at all yet.*

Footer-Note: Firefox’s spell check informed me, “crêpes” is incorrect – granted, spell check is for a user’s currently-selected primary language, alone.

TipByte: Status Bar disappeared in Firefox?

*Update* 12/19/08: If this tip below doesn’t work for you, check the newest tip below. Click here to jump.

I don’t know if it was my mistake, or the folks at Mozilla thought the status bar wasn’t necessary for Firefox 3.0 – but mine had disappeared. I’m a busy girl so I let this torture me for days of not being able to preview hyperlinks’ URLs (which is a scary thing indeed, it’s dangerous sometimes for real!).

But a bit of poking around led me to the simplest cure: If this happened to you

Click View, then toggle click Status Bar. It should now be checked and remain. You may even now feel free to turn on/off as you please.

Mine’s staying. Whew!!

*Update* I just found this post on Google when I encountered this again, but this time it’s due to being mid-Firefox upgrade. What fixed it this time was closing and re-opening Firefox. The upgrade was complete and my status bar returned. I don’t know why this happened. But I hope I can help some others!

Footer-Note: This little post is no sign of the quality of great posts that are to come soon. However, we will now run a series of occasional extremely short tips, under the tag: Tip Bytes. (See the tags below.)
