Xbox One and PlayStation 4, collectively known as ‘Next Gen’ consoles, have the ability to enable much more sophisticated gaming with better graphics, a larger game world, and more creative game development. The gaming public is excited about the possibilities of the Next Gen and is eager to find out how the increased capabilities of the Next Gen consoles will translate into better and more stylish games. But with amazing graphics that we already have, where will the big jump in game quality come from?

Over the last ten years, the most significant advances in gaming have come from better graphics in games. I remember playing the first Fifa Soccer game on the Mega Drive and thought it looked fantastic. Try to play the game now and it’s archaic! Compare that to the NBA 2K 14 game on PS4, where your computer player even appears to sweat in a realistic way during gameplay and it’s safe to say we’ve reached a point where the players look almost lifelike.

Not content with looking realistic, player movement and AI decision-making mimic the personality and playstyle of real-life sports stars. Messi and Bale play like Messi and Bale in FIFA 14. This increases the realism and is more immersive. Next-gen gamers expect attention to detail in every nuance of a game, and the standard set by the first games released on next-gen consoles has set the bar high for other developers to meet and, over time, , get over it.

It’s so early for next-gen games that there’s a lot of room for improvement. Compare the quality of PlayStation 3 games when they were first released to those that are released now. We sat here in 2014 and speculated that we’re still not seeing a fraction of the potential capacity of next-gen games.

The biggest release of 2013 for PS3 and Xbox was Grand Theft Auto 5. This game featured the best gameplay possible in the current generation, squeezing every bit of power out of the console. It can be considered a passing of the torch and an admission that this is as good as it gets on current-gen consoles. Rockstar Gaming even said so. GTA V underscored that this was a starting point for PS4 and Xbox One, posing the tantalizing rhetorical question to the player, “if we can bring you this on current gen, imagine what we can achieve on next gen.”

The first releases on the Next Gen consoles have taken advantage of the freedoms offered by the improved capacity of the hardware, choosing to increase the level of immersion in games. They have chosen to empower the player to make decisions that set the direction of their in-game experience. I think this is the way forward for future game development. PS3 limitations mean the ‘rats in a maze’ feel of some games can be relaxed and while every game should have its perimeters, the net can be cast wider, reducing the impact of getting caught as a ball. pinball game that bounces but eventually draws. towards the specific conclusion of the games. With larger game environments, Next Gen open world games offer more opportunities for the player to explore subplots, where instead of just completing set missions, they can trade to earn money, manage businesses, or just explore the vast game environment in your leisure

Recent trailers for the upcoming open world game ‘Watchdog’, scheduled for release on Next Gen consoles from May 27 in the UK, demonstrate that the user will be able to interact with any member of the AI ​​audience across the vast landscape. virtual Chicago. in his role as a vigilante rejecting the city’s closed security system. The game is so wide in the Next Gen that the developers at Ubisoft have posted videos online of hour long gameplay sessions without having to worry about revealing all the secrets of the game.

With the possibilities for open world gaming so vast in Next Gen, it’s very interesting to note that the most successful open world game developer, Rockstar Gaming, has yet to release the details of potential future Next Gen titles, choosing at change update GTA V. later in this year. We know from experience that it can take up to two years for Rockstar to deliver a title on PS3 and it will probably take at least this long for a next-gen game. I firmly believe that Rockstar will set a new standard and deliver a brilliant Next Gen open world game, vaster than anything we’ve seen so far. Considering the Watchdog aspect, this will be a significant achievement for Rockstar, if they get it right.

For those sports fans and sports simulation lovers like me, one title has already set a high standard for others to follow. NBA 2K 14 offers an exceptional standard of graphics quality and the game looks as real as I can imagine for a few years. Even at this early stage in the development of the Next Gen sports simulator, NBA 2K 14 has set a very high standard. Their choices offer a glimpse of how developers will look to use the power of Next Gen technology in future games. Vignettes where your player makes decisions off the pitch, such as interacting with opposing players, coaches, backroom staff and sponsors, will be further developed to enhance the gaming experience, giving the player a more immersive experience of the game. life as a professional basketball player instead of just concentrating we play. I was surprised that such a polished game came out so quickly. If this is as bad as sports simulators, PS4 will be a happy place for sports game enthusiasts.

To be sure, game developers are under pressure to deliver. PS3 games were good, but PS4 gamers have been conditioned to expect excellence by the strong promotion of Next Gen and anything short of a sharp increase in quality will be scoffed at by the hard-core audience rushing by. to regret any poor launch. Just ask any Madden 25 fan who has bought the PS4 version. With the exception of slightly smoother graphics, this game could have been released on PS3 and differs only marginally from the current-gen console. That’s not good enough and fans of that franchise are expecting better from EA developers next year.

The challenge is up and gamers are eager to see how game developers use the enhanced capabilities of Next Gen and the freedoms it offers to produce great games. Developers must balance the current emptiness of the game with the need to produce quality titles. With better graphics, more immersion, a better overall gaming experience, and the power of the internet to facilitate gaming battles around the world, Next Gen has ushered in a new era of console gaming. With this comes a hunger for excellence, a more critical eye, and we look forward to how game developers work on new releases to take advantage of the Next Gen’s ability to produce better, more immersive games.

The king of the current generation is dead, long live the next generation.

First learn the basics of how medicines work

Stimulant medications for ADD have certain easy-to-recognize features in how they work. If you understand those characteristics, you can adjust medications correctly; if you don’t, it just won’t do it right, and the whole treatment process becomes significantly problematic. Too often, drugs are widely distributed based on an *ADD/ADHD diagnosis* instead of specifically treating the *person* with the ADD/ADHD challenge.

I liken this casual process of medication adjustment to stepping back and throwing a bucket of paint at a barn door that needs painting, rather than taking a fine paintbrush and covering the edges, specifically the details. ADD medications require *personal work* at the beginning and at each subsequent medication review. This article discusses the 7 Essential Tips on how to recognize and correct Therapeutic Window Background.

First consider the therapeutic window

The *Therapeutic Window* is just what it says; the window is the space, place in time and symptom correction in which the stimulant drug clinically works best – the exact dose, the expected efficacy of that specific product with that specific person. All products have characteristic features, they are metabolized, burned, at different rates in different people. The way we evaluate that window is by recognizing the top, the bottom, and the sides. We work to make sure that all the bases are covered correctly and that the drug is working at the maximum expected level of performance.

A key point of observation with the Therapeutic Window Fund: the drug is underdosed. The top is too much, the bottom is not enough.

7 tips for finding the bottom of the therapeutic window: So what is the bottom like?

  1. Obvious Bottom: Medicines [Meds] they have no effect: “Below background” means the meds just aren’t working: no effect, no focus or improvement in attention, no delay in impulsivity or hyperactivity is going crazy, the mind is constantly preoccupied, avoidance and procrastination with projects remains clearly intact. Inadequate can be measured both at the end and at the beginning of the day. Is there an AM start, how long does it last in the afternoon? If you cannot answer any of these questions, the dose is usually insufficient.
  2. Vague Bottom: Drugs Not Working Enough: Duration of Efficacy [DOE] not suitable: All stimulant medications have an expected duration of less than 24 hours. Marking the specific duration is essential to get the best from each medication. Vyvanse and Daytrana win the DOE race with 12-14 hours, Adderall XR is next with 10 hours DOE, Concerta and Focalin work 8-10 hours if dialed effectively, Metadate CR and Ritalin LA are right at 8 hours , – rest lasts only part of the day with Adderall IR [Immediate Release Tabs] lasting about 5-6 hours. Ritalin IR has a maximum duration of 4 hours. None of the short-acting doses of IR last past noon without significant side effects, such as: overfocus in the afternoon and a sharp drop around 1-2 PM. It is important to be completely precise about the DOE’s expectations for each specific medication.
  3. Inaccurate bottom: The apparent “bottom” is really the top: It looks like the drugs “don’t work” but are actually too high a dose. Inability to focus, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are caused by too much medication, not not enough medication. How to tell the difference? This will be another article, but for now think: emotional dysregulation: angry, sad, irritable, disrespectful, or high.
  4. Insufficient bottom – the goal for the day must be set correctly: medications are not marked for the whole day, but simply to “get through work or school.” This problem has been with us since long before the 1960s, it’s paleolithic, and it just doesn’t address the ‘fascinating hours’ of 4-8 pm New drugs can cover the whole day, school and work are no longer the sole objectives. Family life, nighttime, and general cognitive management throughout the day have become important treatment targets with new medication alternatives.
  5. The Cycling Bottom with IR: The IR Bottom – If it’s immediate release [IR – Short Acting ] Medications are the first choice: If RI medications become the first choice for whatever reason, as managed care often does not consider the “adherence goal” important to support [in spite of multiple references in the literature], the fund is often overlooked with the focus on the economy. If IR medications become an absolutely necessary option, then responsible regular use throughout the day to avoid the inevitable cycles of ups and downs becomes an essential goal, even if you have ADD.
  6. Missing a fixable background – Neglecting the PM background target: Specifically target fascinating hours early in treatment – PM time is not properly targeted, and if the extended release drug has a DOE of 8 hours, then a short action IR clipping is essential for the night, and essential to accurately dial in the expected IR DOE at night. Just because it’s evening time doesn’t mean the day is over.
  7. Uneducated client haze: Client cannot see the background or is not actively involved in the background search process: If the ADD client is not involved in the process, if the conversation is only with the parents, if the discussions are not clear objectives regarding the Upper, Lower and Lateral Therapeutic Window from the beginning, medical check-ups become an avalanche of misinformation and guesswork. With stimulant medications, precision is possible, it’s fun, and it needs to be organized from the start. Predictable results can become the rule.

The window concept provides a different and more targeted way of adjusting stimulant medications that makes the whole process more “enlightening”.

A karaoke amplifier is a powered amplifier designed specifically for the needs of the avid karaoke equipment owner. Many are designed for the karaoke DJ, while some are more designed for home use. They are typically designed to make it easy to plug in and out of karaoke equipment and provide numerous additional features over a typical public address system power amplifier.

These features typically include features that any DJ would appreciate. For example, many of the karaoke amps are considered hybrid amps because they have features normally associated with preamps.

One of these features is the multiple inputs so you can send audio signals from multiple sources. This eliminates the need for a mixer if you have two audio sources, such as the karaoke source and an iPod for fill-in music. Many of these units also include a radio tuner.

A typical karaoke amplifier has enough power to drive four or more speakers efficiently. For a good karaoke setup you will need 2 main speakers, at least one subwoofer and at least one monitor speaker. The main speaker and the subwoofer work together to deliver all the sound to the audience.

The monitor speaker is there so the singer can hear himself. Quality amps for karaoke and other DJ applications have a built-in crossover, which means the low frequencies from the subwoofer only go to the subwoofer, keeping them away from the rest of the mix. The best way to run speakers is to run mains and monitors on the same channel, since high frequencies don’t need as much power.

Be sure to match your amp to your speakers and vice versa. You want to make sure the speakers can handle more power than the amp can put out, but not too much. For example, if your amp can produce three hundred watts, then speakers that are rated to handle four hundred and fifty watts would be perfect.

If the amp can produce eight hundred watts, then a single speaker must be able to handle a thousand. However, when you’re using that many watts, you’ll likely be using multiple speakers. In this case, add up the power of each to determine how much they can handle. With eight hundred watts, you could use two five hundred watt speakers (or even four hundred and fifty), or four two hundred to three hundred watt speakers.

The flip side of this is buying a subwoofer that is rated at fifteen hundred watts and only running it with a three hundred watt amp. You will likely burn out the amp and never get a good sound out of the speaker because it needs more power than it does to produce the sound properly.

this dragon must be, what
it takes a month to blink!”

It’s good to keep track and know what phase of the moon we’re on. Our behaviors and emotional responses directly correlate to the lunation phases of the Moon. When we coordinate our activities with the lunar energies, we can really maximize their influence. And we can use all the help we can get, right? Plant seeds, ideas, visions in the New Moon. Weed, discard and remove the unnecessary on the Full Moon.

Songs, poems, odes, daydreams. The Moon has been an object of endless worship since the beginning of time. Mysterious and changing, sometimes hidden by clouds or (gasp!) the Earth itself, our satellite, our iridescent child, the Moon floats suspended in the sky, prompting us to dream, wonder, reflect. To make a garden by moonlight, to walk in the woods with the moon shining through foliage or bare branches, every time we get a chance to be embraced by its silvery light, we know we are being touched by the moonlight. hand of the divine feminine and we are blessed. .

The Moon changes signs (constellations) approximately every 2 and a half days. The Moon is in a bad mood; she rules the sign of Cancer. If you know someone who has a strong Cancer influence in their chart (Cancer Sun or Moon, a Cancer ascendant, or many planets, especially the Sun, in the fourth house), you can expect that person to be in a bad mood! As the Moon moves into a sign, the emotional timbre of that sign is amplified. A full moon always brings more activity in the ER, but a full moon in Scorpio will make that activity even more intense!

When you know the sign that the Moon is in your own natal chart, you will be able to understand your own moods and how it is affected by the movement of the moon through the heavens. Let’s take a look at what the energies feel like when the Moon moves through a particular sign:

Moon in Aries: dynamic, impulsive, full of energy, aggressive, risky
Moon in Taurus: pleasure-loving, indulgent, calm, stubborn, greedy
Moon in Gemini: talkative, talkative, social, attractive, communicative
Moon in Cancer: sensitive, moody, nestled, affectionate
Moon in Leo: dramatic, generous, flashy, proud, grandiose, bossy
Moon in Virgo: organized, practical, attention to detail, fussy, critical
Moon in Libra: lover of harmony, open to compromise, desire to be fair and equitable
Moon in Scorpio: intense, passionate, reserved, mysterious, controlling
Moon in Sagittarius: gregarious, philosophical, optimistic, great vision
Moon in Capricorn: executive, can take on challenges, sober, serious, capable
Moon in Aquarius: visionary, humanitarian, innovator, rebellious
Moon in Pisces: dreamy, intuitive, limitless, compassionate

Do you recognize your own emotional nature in any of these descriptions? You could very well have the Moon in that sign in your chart. The more you know about your chart, the better you can navigate the often choppy waters of life on Earth!

Special note: This year there were 2 New Moons in Cancer, one at the beginning of the sign and one at the end. That is VERY significant, as is the fact that these New Moons are SUPERMOONS. A SUPERMOON (this is 2 of 5 this year) occurs when the New or Full Moon is at its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit. We feel the energy of the Moon’s effect on Earth at those times. This will bring stronger tides and heightened feelings everywhere, specifically in the areas ruled by the signs involved.

As you can see, we have a couple of eclipses that occur in July (actually, they often travel in pairs). Eclipses are pivotal moments that trigger the beginning of changes that will become apparent 6 months later. The location of eclipses in relation to your personal chart will show you which areas of your life are most affected by their energy. I have found this to be a very important indicator of where to focus your energy for change and growth.

During a lunar eclipse, the Earth blocks the full Moon, so light from the Sun cannot reach the Moon. We know that the Moon reflects light from the Sun, so during those times when that light is blocked it is like the Moon taking a deep breath and holding it. In those moments magic happens. Changes occur at the level of consciousness. Since this Full Moon is in the sign of Capricorn (Full Moons are always opposite the Sun) and the Sun is in Cancer, the issues of Capricorn and Cancer must be considered. , feminine nurturing energy and Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, is the goal-oriented and competitive archetypal masculine energy. We each have BOTH energies in our personas.

During a solar eclipse, when the Moon is new (both Sun and Moon in the same sign), the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking some of the Sun’s energy. This eclipse will be total in parts of India and China. I saw a total eclipse years ago in Helena, Montana and I tell you, it was worth the trip! The air became very still and there was a strange feeling that something was happening that was much bigger than us little humans! The dogs were doing the low growl-howl, intensifying the primal feeling of our collective vulnerability. Such is the energy of an eclipse.

These eclipses help you identify these energies manifesting on your own chart and how you balance them further. Are you too bossy and domineering in some places (all in the name of trying to get things done) and too emotional and overly careful in others? It’s time for a cosmic tweak! Use these eclipses to connect with your own vulnerability around gender role expectations. The Cancer-Capricorn axis asks us to look at where we are unbalanced in the male-female balance and strive for greater inner balance and union.

So whether you’re sailing down the Moon River or giving a good howl, take a good look at the Moon, our guide to the monthly cycle of our lives.

Are you seeing what I’m seeing?

If you’re searching Google for the exact same keywords I’m searching for, chances are NO, you are not seeing what I am seeing.

I’m in New York City and you may be in Kalamazoo, Michigan, so Google scans our IP addresses, which tells them where we are and adjusts the results based on our location.

Google then looks at what your search history reveals and tries to work out assumptions that would be relevant to you based on its calculations. They are doing the same for me.

Then add to the mix google snapshot and the possibilities begin to appear before you finish typing what you might be looking for based on the factors mentioned above and other factors such as the most popular websites.

If you’re searching at 10am and I’m searching at 3pm, the real time results will certainly vary based on that 5 hour difference and Google takes that into account and offers results based on real time activity as well as.

So you won’t see what I see when we search for the exact same keyword or keyword phrase.

Add to that that Google Instant is now taking up valuable ATF (above the fold) real estate, if you were hoping to get first page visibility after all your SEO work, you might be pushed to BTF (yes, below the fold) or even worse, page 2.

So what does a website have to do to be seen these days?

If it’s still not possible to become the most popular brand in the universe, then I’d start focusing on the Google stuff. Yes, Bing is making headway and other search engines still have a foot in the search game, but for now, at least for now, Google still has the lion’s share of searches. So let’s focus on Google for this post. The following are some things that Google likes, not in order of importance but in the order of my random thought patterns. And let’s face it: if Google likes it, then you have a chance.

one. google loves videos so start posting videos. YouTube, Vimeo and Ustream are some sites to consider. If you are hosting videos on your own or through third parties, I suggest you host them on one of the major video sites to gain traction. And if you really want to make Google happy, YouTube keeps it in the family.

two. Google loves real time. Are you already tweeting? This is the best tool to keep a constant flow of activity in real time. Start thinking about keywords, topics, article sources to share and start tweeting today. Know that Google pays attention to your credibility and that is measured by RT (retweets) and conversations with other tweeters indicated by @name. So tweet seriously, not for nothing (promotion only).

3. google places of love. Get a Google places account. They love coupons so they can add value to their search engines. And tags (yes, Google will let you stand out on the map if you pay Tag) are around $25 a month.

4. Google likes you to play with its toys. try to use google docs it’s actually quite handy for sharing files or getting your information on the go. google calendar it could be a solution or even a cool app on your website.

5. Google likes when you visit your website, so make sure you install google analytics and have a webmaster account that you actually check from time to time.

6. Google loves to read your mail, so make sure you have a gmail account. I use mine as a receptacle for the dozens of newsletters and blogs I subscribe to.

7. Google loves its maps. Make sure you have one for your location on your website.

8. Google loves bloggers. Since they have a vested interest in blogspot, you might want to consider using blogspot. I think a blog belongs to your website, so you could give this one up.

9. Google loves new content. That’s where a blog on your site comes in handy. Other ideas are to change a section on your home page with news about your company or in your industry, get some PDFs and other shareable downloadable content. Google likes it when you play nice and make things available to their searchers.

10 Google loves fast loading websites so go back and clean up your code, get rid of the flash, reduce the number and size of your photos, and check for anything that might be slowing down your load times.

eleven google love tags. They really like it when you make their job easy, so come back and look at your code. Hopefully you’re already using CSS and make sure your H1 tags are keywords; have a well-written, keyword-rich meta description.

12 Google likes real word page names. That means if you have dynamic pages that output a lot of nonsense like ##&^236.html well that doesn’t help Google at all. Make sure page names are words, particularly keywords, and oh, don’t make all the words run together or use underscores to separate words, Google likes hyphens. Your page name should look like page-name.htm and not page_name.htm or page%$###.htm.

13 Google likes links. Lots and lots of links. But they must be good links and they must be text-based links. Reputable directories are a good start. Getting other relevant sites to use your keywords and link to your site is worth a pot of gold or maybe two pots if it’s a well established website.

14 Google loves high traffic sites. Get visitors to come and keep them there because Google pays attention to how long their searchers actually stay on your site and how many pages they browse.

fifteen. Google loves commitments. If you have a domain name that is expiring soon, go ahead and renew it for generations to come. Ok, well at least for a couple of years.

16. Google likes deep thinkers and Many pages. I realize that the more pages you have, the more money you have to spend and certainly the more time thinking about what you are going to put on those pages, but think about it. Create a site plan that makes sense and provides information to your visitors in a logical arrangement.

17 Google likes addresses. Give your visitors an HTML sitemap and make sure you submit an XML sitemap directly to Google.

18 Google likes breadcrumbs. These are the little text navigations at the top of a page that indicate where you are on the site in the scheme of things. It could be something like: home > food > meat > organic. Your web developer can set it up for you if you don’t know how to code.

19 Google really likes alt tags. They still can’t read the photos, so remember to give your images alternate tags and use keywords. Instead of using a generic word like image.jpg, try using a keyword, for example, organic-meat.jpg. Yes, scripts work fine here too.

twenty Google likes to know you’re real – install hcards or at least make sure you have address and phone numbers visible on your site.

The point is that search engine optimization is undergoing radical changes and changes and I have no idea where PPC will end up in the scheme of things; neither are the experts at this point, they are all waiting and seeing so as far as i can tell. So follow these basic rules:

1. Have a website relevant to the keywords, well organized and coded.

2. Provide good content on your website.

3. Blog and post updates regularly.

4. Be social – Use Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and other sites that give you the opportunity to engage with the world at large. No more hiding behind your Mister/Missy desk!

5. Don’t resort to black hat techniques or link farms: Not only does Google not like that, it may shut you down.

6. Read other people’s blogs and comment where it makes sense and when you can offer insight or add to the conversation.

I invite you to start right now, comment on this blog post, add some of your suggestions or feel free to refute mine. Let’s start the conversation and links to your site!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock since July 6, 2016, you’ll at least know that millions of people around the world now spend every free moment hunting Pokémon. (For the uninitiated about to correct my grammar, I assure you that Pokémon is singular and plural, there is no ‘Pokémon’). It’s an international obsession, seeing the new ‘Pokemon Go’ app downloaded more than 15 million times in the first 6 days of its release in Australia, Japan, and the United States.

What is a Pokémon? It is technically a small creature found in video games. Catch one and you can train it to help you fight others. The basic concept hasn’t changed, though (believe it or not) Pokémon are now 20 years old. It’s been so long since some ingenious computer scientists devised the Pokémon video game for Nintendo’s Game Boy handheld device. At that stage, most people didn’t have access to the internet and Pokémon were strictly offline beasts. Still, according to Wikipedia, the Pokémon franchise has sold around 280 million units, making it the second most popular game franchise in history, based on unit sales. The franchise’s gross revenue exceeded $46 billion during that period, which could technically make the Pokemon empire bigger than Greenland or the Cayman Islands. Those guys should seriously think about getting a national dragon!

For the past couple of years, some other smart folks working at Niantic, part-owned by Nintendo, have gone to great lengths, or should I say “pokemoning” (yes, that’s a real word) to produce the latest and greatest edition ever released. on July 6, 2016. On that date, the cages were opened and Pokémon ran, swam, and flew to the four corners of the earth where they can be found today. Right now. Can I see them. Of course, I can only see them through my Android mirror, but Niantic promises that very soon I’ll have my own personal ‘Pokemon Go Plus’ wearable device, a kind of lapel clip, that will alert me to the presence of a nearby Pokémon. and allow me to hunt it down without touching my phone. Wherever you go on earth, you’ll see these tag clips, buzzing. buzz. buzz. And you thought mobile phones ringing in theaters were a distraction!

Why does this matter anyway? Bear with me while I wear my geek boy glasses for a bit. First of all, Pokemon Go is a kind of ‘augmented reality’ system. Many people and organizations have tried to bring these systems into the mainstream, without any commercial success. The early popularity of Pokemon Go shows that augmented reality could truly be a new revolution on our doorstep, changing our lives more than text messages and selfies (for example). Hunting Pokemon is just the beginning of this revolution. Second, the convergence of artificial intelligence and augmented reality opens the door to a world where constant companions will be with us wherever we go, greatly enriching our experience of the world. Think Siri on Anavar.

Some readers will remember ‘Clippy’ and other attempts to supposedly enrich users’ experiences with desktop productivity software. If you don’t remember Clippy, consider yourself lucky. Clippy was an irritating wannabe who sometimes made you want to punch the screen just to get him to go away. And maybe that’s the point here. We don’t want them to make us rich. What we want is an enrichment that is there when we need or choose it, like a friend in our life whom we invite to come places with us. Pokémon can be alluring and magnetic, but they don’t invade our space unless we opt in. Simply put, friends are for when we want to play games or share experiences and sometimes when we want to open our hearts to a good listener. Newsflash: Dr. Pokémon will see you now.

However, sometimes friends lead you astray and get you into trouble, and apparently “‘I was collecting Pokémon’ is not a legal defence,” according to Western Australia police. Really? So if I chase my imaginary monster friend into your backyard, I can’t plead insanity? (Search “Pokémon madness” online. It’s already a thing.) I hear people are putting up signs on their properties now, telling Pokemon trainers not to trespass. In fact, some lawyers are suggesting that if you come onto my property and take my Pokémon it’s theft. You have been warned.

The iPad has launched great. There has been a lot of news and there are a lot of people behind the scenes trying to make it a success and a lot of others who are putting out similar products of this type. But what’s so good about the iPad? Well, there are a lot of things that can be good about the product itself, but what’s good for most people who use it is that there are a ton of apps that are popping up faster than you might think.

The iPad was an innovation and today there is another platform for software developers to focus on and develop innovative applications. The iPad software is now available in boxed and custom versions. No matter what you’re looking for, you can find a great iPad software developer near you. The point is how good are these developers?

Now, before you check out online developers for iPad software, keep in mind that you won’t find one who has experience developing iPad apps. Considering the fact that the iPad was only a few months old at the time of this writing, you literally won’t find anyone more than a few months old on the iPad app development team at any software company. Plus, you don’t need someone with Mac experience to develop software for you. If the developers are good with Mac software, this could be an added bonus, but it shouldn’t be the choice for it.

Your best bet is for people who have years of experience in the software development industry with solid logic. This is one of the biggest advantages if you consider developing apps for iPad or iPhone. For more information, please refer to the iPad and iPhone software developer website online. Trust me; you’ll be in luck.

Keep in mind that iPad and iPhone software may be compatible with each other, but it’s not the same at any price. The iPad is not a big iPhone. It’s very different and there are features that the iPhone has that the iPhone can’t. The same applies to the iPhone as well. There are many features on your iPhone that cannot be replicated on your iPad. The Software is therefore also different for both computers. Call the iPad or iPhone software developer to find out what they can offer and how quickly they can complete the assigned task. It will save you days of frustration and you can always switch developers if you are not happy with the current provider.

We encourage you to visit our website to learn more about the iPad and iPhone apps below.

Although many would say that Second Life is not a game, but a social phenomenon, I think it is a bit of both. You are still creating a virtual avatar, roaming virtual environments and doing virtual things, although you are not alone, but part of a social phenomenon with thousands of other people. So how can something virtual, something from a “game,” like the Linden dollars used in Second Life, be converted into real-life dollars to spend? The in-game economy allows for this and the fact that you are playing against other people who are willing to spend a few bucks in this virtual environment answers your question. But to use the Second Life economy, we need to understand it.

Second Life – Virtual Economy

The entire economy of Second Life is based on the in-game currency, called the Linden Dollar, or simply L$. About 270 Linden dollars makes one US dollar, and you can easily transact from Linden dollars to US dollars (or various other currencies) using Second Life’s currency exchanges.

With millions of Second Life residents buying and selling items, land, and property, it’s not hard to understand how this economy comes to life. In fact, virtual economy analysts at the Metastat Bureau of Statistics estimated that Second Life will have a GDP of over $550 million in 2007. $550 times 270 = lots of Linden dollars flowing freely into Second Life’s economy.

It is easy to convert virtual money into real money in the world of Second Life and you have several options to do so. First of all, you can go from Linden to real dollars using the Linden Lab forex brokerage, which is closely monitored by the creators of Second Life. Or you can try the LindeX currency exchange, which many residents prefer to the old currency exchange offered by Linden Labs. Last but not least, if you want better management of your transactions, you can use a third-party currency exchange program , but please note that you are using them at your own risk.

As you can see, it is not very difficult to go from Linden dollars to real dollars and you have several options at hand. However, exchanging money is not the hard part, but doing it is! It’s not easy to make money as a beginner in Second Life, but if you work your way up and become “rich” in the virtual world, you can easily start earning real dollars and earning a living. Many qualified residents have built successful businesses within Second Life that allow them to earn real money. As in real life, Second Life has its giants, with various real estate owners or venue owners generating thousands of real dollars every month, since they can basically live off the profits made in the virtual world of Second Life.

Are you a big fan of YouTube? If you are like me, then you spend your day endlessly searching for the newest and funniest video clips uploaded. Well, thanks to Apple’s iPhone, we video addicts already have our golden fleece. The iPhone allows us to enjoy videos wherever we are.

One of the best features that Apple is using to sell the iPhone is its ability to watch videos online through YouTube. This allows owners to watch any video they want from a library of millions with a constant stream of new videos uploaded every day. The great thing about iPhone is that users can explore all these new and old video favorites without having to learn a whole new search process on iPhone’s easy-to-use platform.

Here is a quick and easy tutorial on how to watch these videos:

  • To get started, touch or tap the “YouTube” icon on your iPhone’s home screen. The icon should look like a small TV on your screen. Tapping this takes you to the main YouTube page.
  • Once you’re on the main YouTube page, look for the “Search” button to get started. A common mistake most beginner iPhone users make is when they type in keywords; they forget to lightly touch the space for keywords. There has to be contact with the keyword field or you’re typing a lot for nothing.
  • Use specific or broad keywords to find new videos on the YouTube site. The virtual keyboard makes it quite easy to type words that can help you locate any specific video you want.
  • Now that you’re on the “Search Results” page, highlight the icon labeled “Video” of a YouTube result that might work for your search query. To access the video, use your index finger to press the icon. Any information accompanying the video will be displayed.
  • Start quick playback options by tapping the “Play” icon for the selected video. It will be centered at the bottom of the screen. You can also skip other viewing options to go directly to the video.
  • By tapping the space outside the main video screen, you can access YouTube and iPhone video tools. Tools like “Rewind” and “Fast Forward” let you watch the video at your own pace. There is also a slider bar that allows you to choose any point in the video to start or go back to.
  • iPhone also allows you to create your own video icons and toolbar with the “Edit” tool. This feature is found by clicking the “More” icon at the top of the phone.

One of the keys to winning your fantasy football league is the ability to recruit Sleepers. “Sleepers” are NFL players who are drafted much lower rounds in their fantasy football drafts than their final statistics warrant. In terms of shopping, this is like buying a bottle of Sam Adams Utopias at Budweiser prices. In the world of fantasy football, this is the path to the league championship. We’ve seen championships won on the heels of Sleepers every year. They’ve come out of nowhere to record monsters years after being double-digit wire picks or quits. When you can grab a player late in your draft who becomes your #1 producer at a certain position, you my friends have a true Sleeper. Below are some projected fantasy football sleepers by position for the 2014 season.

2014 fantasy football sleepers

Quarterback: Jay Cutler (Chicago) – Yes, Cutler seems to be made of cupcakes thanks to his injury history, but that’s something that can be overlooked under the right circumstances. It was obvious last year that the hype about coach Marc Trestman’s offensive prowess was justified. Cutler put up big numbers until he got hurt right after the season’s midpoint and Josh McCown didn’t miss a beat (the pair combined for 4,450 yards and 32 TDs). With more time under center and soaking up the playbook, he can expect even better numbers from this offense this season. You can easily get Cutler in the 10th round, as most teams in your league will be taking top 7 QBs soon and opting to roll the dice with the likes of Nick Foles and RG3 before looking at the veteran unemotionally.

Also consider: Josh McCown (Tampa), Ryan Fitzpatrick (HOU)

RB: Terrance West (Cleveland) – Thanks to Johnny Football, no positions outside of QB are getting attention in Cleveland even though they’ve added plenty of new faces at the skill positions. At RB, they selected Ben Tate to be their starter, but also moved up in the draft to select West. Tate has had a history of injuries, so there’s no way he’s going to become a full-time workhorse, especially when he’s in a Kyle Shanahan offense that will have a quarterback recovering from an ACL injury or a rookie learning to play the position. Because of those factors, West will see a lot of carries, RB1 carries when Tate inevitably goes down. The news from training camp is that West has shown some very good hands, much better than Tate, so he’ll give him more reps as well. You could let someone else grab Tate in the fourth round and then go for Tate’s handcuffs in the eighth round.

Also consider: Dexter McCluster (TENN), Jeremy Hill (CIN)

WR: Brandin Cooks (New Orleans) – It’s a rocket science to pick Saints receivers since Drew Brees enjoys spreading the ball, but there are A LOT of points to share. It has become painfully obvious that Marques Colston has slowed down significantly and that Lance Moore is now on the Steelers. Coach Sean Payton loves Cooks’ versatility and will incorporate him into the offense on the outside, in the slot, kick returns and even in the backfield. He’s not big at 5’10” and 189 pounds, but he’s fast. Rookie WRs are rarely consistent and often disappoint, but the lead is too great to let him past the ninth round.

Also considered: Emmanuel Sanders (DEN), Justin Hunter (TENN)

TE: Ladarius Green (San Diego) – The Tight End is a position that is very deep and produces Ties year after year. Green saw his playing time increase significantly last season when Philip Rivers aired the ball quite a bit and Green took the look off an aging Antonio Gates. Gates is still around, but Green is a beast at 6’6″, 240lbs, but he showed 4.5 speed. He showed he was a huge game threat in the middle of the field by recording 22.1 yards per catch. It’s a block. for double-digit rounds and has the potential for similar stats as TEs drafted many rounds earlier.

Also considered: Eric Ebron (DET), Zach Ertz (PHIL)

D: New England Patriots – The Patriots D rarely get supports with Tom Terrific on the other side of the ball, but this unit is the key to success this season for New England. They lost some key players last season to injuries who are back, like DT Tommy Kelly, added some key players during the draft, like DT Dominique Easley, and filled the remaining gaps through free agency, most notably with Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. . Add these players to Vince Wilfork, Rob Ninkovich, Dont’a Hightower and Devin McCourty and this is a unit that could almost outshine the offense.

Also consider: Denver

K: Robbie Gould (Chicago) – Considering kickers shouldn’t be taken before the last two rounds, I find it hard to replace a kicker as one of fantasy football’s sleepers. However, Gould is consistently one of the last kickers taken and is about as automatic as it gets when it comes to kicking, even when he plays half of his games outdoors in Windy City. Chicago’s offense will be nearly unstoppable this season and Gould will have more opportunities to ply his trade.

Also consider: Matt Bryant (ATL)
