Meet Timberman

TechCrunch compared this game to Flappy Bird. In terms of numbers like “Most Downloaded”?  Maybe Yes. But I think I like this more than Flappy Bird. Both are addictive but you won’t have play Timberman 5 days to score 5 points like Flappy Birds. It’s a lot easier to score. TechCrunch reports that it was downloaded 1 million in the past 3 days in App Store. Read their full post here.

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Too much ads I must say. Ads like one on the upper right appears frequently. But you can buy the ad free version for $1.08 in Play Store and $0.99 in the App store.

Bill Gates says his portrayal in “Pirates of Silicon Valley” was reasonably accurate.

I knew there a movie like “The Social Network” which describes the tales of  the big guns Apple.Inc and Microsoft.inc. “I watched some parts of it but it wasn’t as popular as The Social Network”, my sister said. I didn’t have any intentions to watch the movie mainly because it was a bit old. Why watch the old (it came out in 1999 as far as I know) when “The Jobs Movie” is coming out this year? As the name suggests the new movie is about Steve Jobs.

Bill Gates did an AMA in Reddit a few days back. So while scrolling through question and answers I found a question with an interesting answer.

The screenshot is taken from Bill Gates’s blog, where he published an assembled version of his AMA.

The portrayal is reasonably accurate!! So I watched the movie the following day.

The movie is 95 minutes long and gives vivid details of how both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs started things off. How they met and their relationship at times. The movie is worth watching.

However the movie doesn’t go into much details about Steve Jobs’s life after he got fired from Apple, how he started NeXT and again came back. “The Jobs Movie” will hopefully show us more. Here’s the first official trailer of the movie found on it’s Facebook page.

Is Ohlife.com a premium service now?

I got to know about this amazing site 7-8 months ago and have been using it since then. If you don’t know what it is  then here is a review.

When we signed up for Ohlife.com for the first time. It’s home page looked something like this.

Notice the words in red with yellow border, “It’s Free“.

Since Ohlife sends me email regularly at a given time. A month ago, I noticed  another new line with their daily mail. It read something like get Ohlife premium.

   I got curious and logged into the site and saw something like this. $50/year seemed a bit too much especially for a teenager like me. I thought to myself that after 2-3 years there are chances that I may take up a premium service, for the site is great.
