After having my boring old 40″ RCA HDTV for about 4 years, i have finally decided to upgrade my HDTV. I am now waiting patiently for Walmart to ship me my new Television., which i bought for $700. What television did i purchase, you ask? Well, i bought the VIZIO E500D-A0 Smart 3D TV, which has a whopping 50″ LED screen. Ever since i wanted to upgrade about a year ago, i felt like i wanted a 3D Television. I have watched 3D before at a friends house, and i really like how it looks. It works really well for movies like Avatar, which was the first 3D movie i have ever seen. The Smart TV features should be cool, especially for watching movies on Netflix and accessing my Amazon movies and television shows i purchased over the years. The Television will come with two pairs of 3D glasses, which also will come in handy. In terms of 3D movies, i will definitely purchase Avatar in 3D, and a few more i am unsure of at the moment. If you have any good 3D movies that you think are good, let me know!

About a few days ago, i found a new application for my Samsung Galaxy S3 that i have been having a blast with. The application is called Rando, and the basic idea of this application is that you will get random photos from strangers. Does that scare you? Well, it probably does. However, this is the internet, and random photos are both fun, and interesting. Well, they are for me.
However, you can’t just let this application sit by itself and gather photos. That would be too easy, and would be no fun! To be able to receive photos, you must send some! (You press that red button in the photo above to send photos). After you take a photo, it may take some time for it to be sent to someone, and even after that you must wait for your photo). The waiting time isn’t terrible, but you still have to wait. The only problem i have is that i cant switch to my front facing camera, but i think i will live.
Apparently, Google is so rich that they have decided to share some of that money, in the form of Google Play credits. Does that excite you? Well, that’s good! Meet the new
Android application, called Opinion Rewards… from Google. What does the application do? You can probably guess from the name of the application that you will be getting rewards for giving Google your opinions on random things. Google has stated that “about once a week you will receive a survey to answer”.
Once you download the application, you will be asked a few questions about yourself, such as age, income, and gender information. Once you finish that, you must take the tutorial survey. After that, your account will have to be approved.
With this program, don’t expect to make tons of money very quick. The idea Google has is to send you a survey every week – We have no idea how much you get paid for each survey, the good news is that there is no minimum payout – Once a survey is completed, the reward goes directly into your Google Play account for spending on anything you like.
Remember Blockbuster? You might not. They started closing down their stores over a year ago, and are finally closing the rest of their stores very soon. Not only will they shut down most of their stores, they will also continue the “DVD my mail” service on the website. The company is admitting that not many people are going out and renting DVD’s anymore, they are using new digital services like Netflix and other streaming platforms. The company however has stated that any store who wishes to operate as a licensed franchise will be able to stay open. However, i wouldn’t expect that to happen.
For weeks, the Grand Theft Auto 5 side-app called “iFruit” has only been available for iOS. As of today, it is also available on Android (Yay). Other than giving you news and information on the game, the application also allows you to train your dog known as chop by giving him treats, feeding him, and more. If you train your dog enough, he will even help you find certain hidden items in the game! You can also customize your vehicle by adding modifications like spoilers, custom colors, window tints, custom wheels, and more. Right now, i must head off to college and try to have a social life. When i get back however, i will play with iFruit after the long wait. I’m excited.
