Random Stuff

Right now I am just sitting in the car waiting for my wife to finish shopping, Gavin is asleep. I thought I would throw up a quick post of just some random thoughts that were going through my head.

First I love the iPhone and it just seems to be getting better all the time. I guess it was about a week ago or maybe a little longer that the Facebook app was released and it just blew me away. It was by far the coolest app that I had seen released to date. Plus a way forms to waste more of my time on Facebook. It is a really cool interface that is a lot faster than just going to the regular page and is extremely usable on the edge network. It gives me access to all the neat things that I love about Facebook; home page, friends list, profiles and such. The only things that don't appear on it are thing like groups and applications, but really those aren't the things that I really care to look at on the phone anyways. If you are fortunate enough to have an iPhone and are a fan of Facebook then this is a must have app.

I am continuing this post a day later. (Kristee came out of the store.) To continue on with the whole social networking thing. It has been awesome to get in touch with some really old friends. Just recently on myspace I have gotten in touch with some childhood friends. I am not a huge fan of myspace and really only use it to keep in touch with friends that I find online. They are the ones that are not on facebook, while I would prefer they were all on facebook I know that is not always going to be the case. (Hence the only reason I keep my myspace profile.) Anyways it is very awesome to get to communicate with them after all these years and get caught up on what is going on in their lives. One person was my very first best friend that I remember ever having when I was only 4. It has been about 23 or 24 years since I have talked to her.

I was away with the kids this past week when Bioshock was released. With all the hype that the game had been receiving and after playing the demo I without a doubt had to pick it up. I have gotten to play a little bit of it so far and it is absolutely amazing. The game play is something a little different, the music is awesome and really adds to the whole experience. It has been said to have an awesome story and from the levels I have played that seems to be very true. What I love about this game is the fact that it is one of those games that you can really get completely immersed in the game and really fell like you are a part of this world that you get to explore. It is also one of those games that can give you a good scare which is always fun to me. If you have a 360 or PC you definitely need to pick this game up with out a doubt.
