This week on the JCast featuring the AudioVillains we reflected on the promo where Eddie showed us his Arnold impression. We also talked about how there are Mormons who are going to war with drug cartels in Mexico (click here for vid by Vice), some funny YouTube video’s and how Mike is a good liar when it comes to making others suffer with him. I’m also adding a video that shows you a little on what goes on behind the scenes of the JCast featuring the AudioVillains. Make sure to watch, listen, and share! Cheers!

Hello folks and here’s one more post for Tech Thursday! While searching the net for some awesome and interesting topics for you I found something that may assist you in every day cell phone use and another that is just plain creepy yet fun. So let’s start with the iPhone 4 and lower. By now you have all seen the commercials for Siri, the assistant that comes built into the new iPhone 4S. Siri answers many questions and can help with making calls, email, text messages, set appointments, and much much more. Apple has already made it clear that Siri will be an exclusive feature to the iPhone 4S so the rest of us are left to drool with envy. What’s good is that there is a way to simulate what Siri does.
Out of all the apps I found, I felt that the best was Vlingo and Dragon Dictation. Although I’ve used both and if I had to choose just one I’d go with Vlingo. Don’t get me wrong, Dragon Diction is awesome and it’s pretty accurate but once you speak and the text is written out for you there is still the pain of having to copy and paste into a text message field or status update. With Vlingo you can say something like, “Text Rebecca, message, What should we have for dinner tonight?” Vlingo will then transfer everything you’ve said into a text message and open your native texting client leaving you with one thing to do; press the send button. The same goes for status updates on Facebook and Twitter. You simply speak what you want and off it goes. It’s not the same as Siri but it’s close enough. There are some hackers who have found a way to port Siri to older iPhones, but I recommend staying away from it completely. Not only is it illegal but it can seriously destroy your iPhone.
Let’s now put Siri aside for a moment and look at something creepy yet fun. We’ve all seen movies that are based in the future where people have barcodes that holds information on person right? Well, what if you could generate your own barcode? A site called, “Barcode Yourself” is out there and you can do just that. It gives an explanation on how it works but I’ll let you go through that yourself. Once you get started you will be asked your age, sex, location, height, and weight. There might be a couple more questions but once you are finished a barcode will be generated with the information you gave for yourself. It’s kind of creepy to think that this could actually happen but for now it’s all in good fun. After finishing your barcode you can print it, promote it, or save it for future use. You can even tattoo yourself if you felt so inclined. I attached mine to this post as an example and make sure to check it out. Also, don’t forget to take a peek at Vlingo and Dragon Dictation with the links provided below. Happy Barcoding and cheers!Post Views: 483

This past Tuesday I experienced something amazing. I communicated with my daughter through the use of an eyebrow. Now, I can’t say for sure that what I experienced was complete communication but after I explain what happened you can generate your own conclusion. So this past Tuesday my wife went with our son on a field trip. I was a little worried because Lola, our daughter, was staying with me and my wife is her only source of food. Sure she could pump but we need a better pump before we go all out. So anyway, my wife said that our 1 month old had a routine where she sleeps in the morning around the time she would be gone so I should be good. My wife was going to be gone for a couple hours and suggested that I put a movie on and relax. I felt a little better after our conversation. Although I had a game plan I kept wondering how Lola was going to react once she woke and realized she was no longer in the arms of her mother. She had fallen asleep in her arms but handed off to me later on so I figured she was going to freak out.
Two and half hours passed before she finally woke up. Instead of freaking out something amazing happened. My little Lola looked at me and smiled as I spoke to her. She was cooing and I was laughing with her and her eyebrow went up. I stopped for a moment and noticed that I was doing the same thing. I put my eyebrow down, she smiled and then hers went down too.
“Is she copying me,”, I thought.
I put my eyebrow up again and she did it too. I put both of them up and she did the same. All this time she’s smiling and cooing. It was unbelievable and I’m sure we were communicating through our eyebrows. I mean, it could be a fluke but she’s been doing it a lot lately. She’s very animated and it amazes me. What makes this even more cool is that the whole eyebrow lifting ability is exclusive to my kids and I. My wife is unable to do it but the kids are spot on with me. I made sure to add a picture to this post of Lola that my wife took so that you could see first hand what I’m talking about. After you have glanced at her look up at my banner and you’ll see my eyebrow lift. Any resemblance? I think we look a lot alike. So what do you think? Is it possible that we were somehow communicating through the use of our eyebrows? Or was it merely a random occurrence? I’m thinking we were communicating. I mean, it wasn’t something we were trying to say to each other, we were just playing back and forth. Then again, it could be interpreted as her and I trying to outdo one another with our eyebrow lift. No matter what it was, it’s something that amazed me and the experience was awesome. Have you experienced something similar?Post Views: 393
