If you like a good old fashioned debate, click over to the “Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham” stream on youtube.  One thing I have learned so far is that both Christians and Evolutionist love the MacBook Pro!

If you missed the LIVE feed because you were watching NCIS Los Angeles and are still interested in watching, I have good news for you. The two hour and forty-five minute video is available for viewing today on the Answers in Genesis YouTube Channel (or you can watch the embedded video below).

The idea is you buy a hard copy book from Amazon (or books you have purchased from Amazing in the past) and then you can buy the Kindle book for $2.99 or less. I have totally crossed over to digital books so this program has been pretty great!

Here is the Kindle Matchbook landing page (it is live now, just log into Amazon and click this link). If you are an avid e-reader click over, and see if any of your “books in hand” are available as eBooks for your tablet.

So, you want to watch the Super Bowl® but you don’t have a TV, cable, or satellite…well, if you have an iPad, Mac, or PC you are in luck. The NFL has been streaming their Super Bowl® online for a few years now and will be doing it again this year. If you have a solid, fast (and wired would be my preference) Internet connection and cannot get good TV reception for your Super Bowl® party you might want to click over to www.foxsportsgo.com and stream it to your big screen or video projector (check out this post about keeping your party legal).

Try it online or download the the FOX Sports GO app for iPad. iPhone users, the only way you are going to be able to watch on your phone is if you are with Verizon and are paying the $5 monthly fee for the NFL Mobile app.  $5 for the Super Bowl® isn’t that bad if you cannot get it anywhere else. The content will only be available the day of the Super Bowl.

Have you watch the Super Bowl® online in past years?  How was the connection?

Quick Tip: Get Human App

 —  January 29, 2014 — 1 Comment

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 5.12.07 PMThis app is as simple as it sounds. GetHuman tells you the best phone numbers and email address to get a human (in a few steps as possible) for those big companies with hard to find contacts. Amazon, eBay, Starbucks, no problem.

Not only do they give you those details GetHuman also has the ability to have those companies call you back without you waiting on hold.

Oh, did I mention it’s FREE?

61EjsSyOLuL._SL1500_The Super Bowl® is around the corner and this little gadget might be the tool to help get your party off the ground (check out this post about keeping your party legal). I have owned an EyeTV for several years and love it. This little gadget turns your Mac or PC into a TV. If you have an antenna and can pick up FOX (Yes, it picks up HD), you can watch the Super Bowl® in your youth room. It is not a guarantee, if you are in the basement (like me) you might have a hard time getting some stations, but FOX comes in loud and clear where I am.

Here is a quick search for an EyeTV. If you decide to purchase make sure it is for the USA and HD (there are UK and older non-HD sticks), I am not sure how or if the others would work. The USB stick is anywhere from $100-$200.

App: Text Later

I get pretty excited when I download a new app that actually finds its way into regular use. My latest fave is called “Text Later.” Every once in a while I have something I need to text, but it is not the right time. But too often, when the right time hits I forget to do it.

The other day I asked my friend if he would email me a file, he said “sure” and to send him a text reminder. I could have been “that guy” and text him on the spot (Ha, ball in your court), but that is lame. What I normally would do is put the message in my phone as a reminder, but now I use “Text Later.”

With “Text Later“…
• I enter my message in the app.
• Schedule when I want to send the text.
• At the time I scheduled the app forces open iOS Messages app with the message in it.
• If I am ready to send, I hit send.
• That’s it.

There are a few apps in the app store like this, and they all seem to get a few bad reviews because they do not actually “send” the text at the time scheduled, they place the message in a text and remind the user to send it at the designated time. This is a restriction with Apple–not app developers.

 

Dear Reviewers ★☆☆☆☆,

I am thankful Apple does not let 3rd party apps control this feature. I do not want apps rooting through my contacts and spamming in my name.

Truly Yours,
Brandon Early

I have, but is wasn’t for the last Bible I purchased. This was pretty cool to watch, but also pretty convicting, I am sure it will make it’s way into a future message.
