We ate at Pita Taza…a Middle Eastern fast food place on Paseo and Wyoming. We got the meat and veggie combo plates…quite tasty! Only thing missing to me was whatever that spicy shawarma sauce is that they have at Yasmine’s.
A little while back, I downloaded the Bank of America app for my phone so that I could deposit checks with it. A neat idea, but it only seemed to work about 1 out of 7 times. You’d keep having to re-take the picture. I’ve finally figured out the secret…take the check outside and take the picture in direct sunlight. It’s just that easy!
Ever wonder how your relatives end up with 5 browser toolbars? Here’s a pretty good explanation.
Here’s my review of Eyepets and Friends…a game we recently found on sale for about $5. You might think from the name that this game is about virtual pets or something. Surprisingly, this game is actually all about helping the game find the floor. You start up the game and place your PlayStation Move controller on the floor to help the system figure out where the floor is. We played the game last night and were unsuccessful in getting past this “level”. I’m guessing that the game is best played 3 inches from the sun so that it has enough light to actually get past the calibration phase.
Why won’t the spacebar pause the Netflix app on a Yoga 2 Pro? Works on my son’s Windows 8 desktop.
In case you had ever installed MotionInJoy to play Steam games with your PS3 controller and you later get an Xbox 360 Wireless controller and wonder why it won’t connect, you need to carefully uninstall MotionInJoy…and I mean exactly as their instructions describe.
Today in the store, I saw a game called LOGO PARTY. It’s full of “your favorite brands”. Wow. They should pay you to take it.
Uncle Keith is visiting, so board games it is! Last night we played Shadows over Camelot…a neat cooperative board game that involves a lot of multitasking. We just barely pulled off a win. Today, we played several rounds of Escape: The Curse of the Temple. This one was an interesting cooperative 10-minute game involving a CD playing audio queues for timing and frantic dice rolling. I’d almost call it an action board game. It rewards thinking fast and observing fast. We had to cheat and remove some room tiles from the deck before we could win…maybe we’re just not fast enough. Anyway, it was playable for 9-year-olds, which was fun.
