As elusive as a Bigfoot- that’s how my mind renders Google’s StreetView cars. You know they’re out there. Photographing us. Making Google Maps the best thing that’s happen to the internet since online pizza ordering, but have you ever seen one. I haven’t. Not ever. Fantastic things like this don’t happen to me. It did however happen to my best friend in Miami, Florida. As he walked right outside his apartment-BAM!

“Take pictures for me!” I begged him. “Why can’t I run into a Google car.”

“Okay, but I have to find my camera.”

We’re not social photographers. We like real lenses.

Imagine how thrilled I was to find these in my inbox.

“You should tweet them!” I enthused.

“Nah. Have fun with them.”

I told you we’re not social.

Behold. I give you a Google StreetView car in all it’s glory!

 

It’s ALIVE!

For the record, the car was legally parked in a residential space. No metered parking required for this spot.

 

★ Probably the only time parking authority will leave you alone- courtesy of Google power.

And you thought Friday mornings couldn’t get any better!

 

★ The internet turns the big 2-0!

Harper Collins hates libraries.

We Play Video Games to Chase Our ‘Ideal Selves’. Sounds about right!

★ If Google can’t profit off your profile, delete, delete, delete!

Children’s Publisher Backing Off Its Corporate Ties. I still don’t understand why they were allowed in schools to begin with.

★ Beware when big networks get involved. Game of Thrones may become too much for HBO. Remember the Mad Men showdown?

★ The new Civil War: Android States and iPhone States.

★ Angry Birds is branching into lingerie.

★ I want my MTV circa 1995.

 

★ Computers: that thing that will change the world.

 

★ Internet shopping via 1969.

 

★ “What is the Internet, anyways?” Not even Bryant Gumbel knows.

 

★ Video the Internet has brought us!

And you thought Friday mornings couldn’t get any better!

★ Another reason NOT to see Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Spotify has landed!

★ We’re all moving to Google Plus, but is a move to Microsoft’s social site next?

Facial recognition to take over the world.

Dog owners vs. cat owners, albeit, I’m a cat person.

★ I’d like to see someone other than Google buy Hulu. Do they have to control the entire internet?

Google plus vs Facebook. It really is like a page out of 1984, but not everyone is on the bandwagon…yet.

Do July 4th Parades Turn Kids into Republicans? Because simply enjoying the holiday would be too hard!

★ Completely agree with Why Netflix’s Price Hike Doesn’t Bother Me. Even at $16 a month, it’s still a cable tv killer!

 

★ The best five dollars you’ll ever spend: purchasing a timelapse of the Milky Way, or you can watch for free!

Google Plus screen shots. It’s all about the circles!

★ Chinchillas: the new adorable!

 
★ There’s no escaping Nancy Grace.

2011 Tech Predictions

December 29th, 2010 | Posted by Sarah in PureNerdism - (4 Comments)

 

 

My favorite nerd moment of the year! I get to play Nostradamus and call out tech predictions next year.

 

-Apple Makes a TV: Or more specifically, Apple buy cheap Chinese hardware and puts Itunes and Apps on it. Basically in line with their other products.

-Iphone Goes to Verizon: Because VZ has the money to pay for Apple’s licensing deal.

-No 4D Tvs…Yet: The technology is on the way. Think 2012-2013 to be glasses free!

-HD Wii: Better graphics, faster processors something for Ninetendo to boost sales.

-Someone Buys Twitter: I’m thinking a media company: AOL, CNN, TimeWarner.

-iPad Gets Competition: Real competition. Think Google Andriod software paired with a strong hardware companies, Asus or Samsung, and HTC.

-Andriod Cellphones Surpass Apple: Apple holds the #2 position in 2011, but in 2012 Windows make major gains. Blackberry either revamps with OS or partners with Windows or Google by 2012.

-Nokia Joins Team Andriod: Kills Symbian.

-Playstation Phone:
Flops. High powered graphic intense games needs stronger harder than is mainstream for mobile phones as of 2011.

-Skype Adds Ads: Because Google taught us, the money is in advertising!

Groupon Regrets Staying Single: Nothing proprietary there. Ego or sheer nativity will be the downfall of this company. Most businesses are learning that these coupon sites aren’t generating loyal customers, either.
