Motorola Announced Project Ara

nexusae0_ara1blogpoost

This my friends is very interesting. There was an idea by some guys called Phonebloks that at the time seemed far fetched. Well it looked like the boys over at Motorola recently bought by Google have picked up the idea and ran with it. They call it Project Ara. So what will come from this. This is what Motorola had to say about this:

The design for Project Ara consists of what we call an endoskeleton (endo) and modules.  The endo is the structural frame that holds all the modules in place. A module can be anything, from a new application processor to a new display or keyboard, an extra battery, a pulse oximeter–or something not yet thought of!

They are working with the PhoneBloks community very closely and will probably be bringing this phone prototype to many eager devs who could possibly make this a reality. Here is the video that sparked the vision.

I also want to be the first one to try it out. I want to try it out before shooting it down. Funny story we had a very lengthy post at Caribbean Gamer forum and here what he said:

Authur Authorious This is a great idea but (sorry to be the downer) just having metal contacts to carry the electrical signals to the different components will slow the phone greatly. Creating all those highly resistant busses will make the phone feel like something from 1990. I’ve tried to draw in my head what the board will look like and what the ports will have to be like in order to reduce the communication lag between the components but…ya its not working out. Leaving out the slowness there are other factors that will not allow this thing to turn a profit….how many people who own a smartphone actually care for it like a new born? Having a device that can swap out parts so easily is not going to be very strong or durable. Nice idea but I won’t put 10 cents on it until living nano tech is created where the nano-mites can relocate themselves on the motherboard to the different components and “create” the necessary ports on the go without causing bottle-necks that will kill the functionality of the device.

I guess those guys at Motorola didn’t get that memo. Just goes to show you that like Steve Jobs your own limitations are only what you can’t imagine. He told us what we wanted and several iPhones later the world belongs to Apple. I say that because I really think this is a good idea but the execution is critical. Will this project inspire creativity with consumers? Will they be inspired to not take what is given to them and try to do something different with their phone? There is something there that can be great or an epic fail. Being backed by Motorola is a great sign of life. Only time will tell if this project can succeed where other have failed.

A concept idea. To much color for my taste but you can see the direction they are going.

Couple this with a Vanilla Android OS and you have a hit.

Taking a stroll through the good old Youtube page and I saw that there are many negative videos shooting down the idea. Which made me think that while most are quick to dismiss the idea some are actually eager to give it a try. I hope all those who calling death to this idea eat their words and swallow the hard pill of reality. Sometimes you have to try something different. Just like Apple that changed the mobile industry. Many thought all touch was crazy. They all said there must be buttons. Now look at them. Probably to ignorant to buy into that idea and have a Blackberry Curve till now. Hopefully this will pull off and you never know this might be my new phone….

Justice League: War Trailer

I have a lot of my friends pissing and moaning about the New 52. Some even told me that they are not even reading it. Well I will be the first to say I embrace the New 52. Some would argue in many circles that Marvel is better than DC. I choose not to get in that argument any more. For one reason. I got my butt handed to me many times fighting which character is better. Which brings me to this awesome trailer. I must admit the past couple movies from the DC been EPIC! Flashpoint!! That thing was deep! From time I heard the Dubstep in the background I knew this was gonna be a cool movie. Also what got me thinking is if they gonna do the new Batman and Superman movie will they base it off the new 52 series..Well either way this trailer reveals many awesome details that I personally am already loving! Batman FTW!!!!

Battlefield 4 Class

While at work I got this pic from my Google + feed. Yes I check Google +. Instantly I thought about the amount of hours I will be sinking in this game. I already know the two classes that will be used steady. B and C. Seeing that the assault class is the new medic. I will try the recon class. They have c4 now. Which makes sense. I can’t count the amount of times I would be scouting the area and a tank would roll right next to me. Having nothing but a sniper rifle and a pistol. Sad. So what will you play as? Will you be getting this as it drops? Will you be to busy playing GTA V online? If not see you guys on the battlefield!

Naruto Shippuuden 335 Cry Me A River Review

vlcsnap-2013-10-24-16h09m23s32

This is what grind my gears. No episode last thursday. Come back today just to sit down and listen to these man to talk. I felt like I was in a group therapy session.

So we begin the episode with the usual banter. I thought in this episode they was going to throw down. Was I wrong. these fools just stood there talking. Kabuto just vomited how great he is and trying to get Sasuke to join him against his brother. That was his plan. To get him to go against his brother that he supposedly killed which we all know Itachi laid down his life from an illness. interesting enough while both parties was having a Dr. Phil moment we got to see some kind of reason for Sasuke to be angry about the Hidden Leaf.

Leh me go mehson!!! Gonna kill you Dr. Phil!!

I still think it is a dumb reason. Even after his brother literally told him why he did what he did. He still feel it was the Hidden Leaf that warrant the hatred. I guess when you are stubborn and need a reason to be mad all the time. So anyway the episode took a another left towards Kabuto. Yes we saw his childhood. We see how being a spy can take away your identity. Not like we care right now! Cause all we want to see is the eyes vs the dragon. Seriously I don’t really want to know the past history of Kabuto. We get it. He had no childhood. He was robbed of his youth. Blah Blah Blah. Cry me a river. Let us just get back to the matter at hand. We are in a cave. Fight to the death.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!….yuck..IT is just glasses!! geez…

So not much here folks. The only thing I got form this episode was that there is another type of jutsu used by the Uchiha. It is called Izanami. We all remember Izanagi right…

danzo clear

Izanagi is a genjutsu that is cast on the user instead of others and is the most powerful amongst this type of genjutsu.When activated, the caster removes the boundaries between reality and illusion within their personal space. To a degree this allows the user to control their state of existence, but it is normally only active for the briefest of moments *naruto wiki*

We should remember that epic fight with Danzo and Sasuke. That was what he used in that fight but lost to once again basic ninjutsu skills. That is what happens when you base your skill on your power and not your ability to think wisely. So back to Izanami..

vlcsnap-2013-10-24-16h13m01s182

Izanami is one of the ultimate dōjutsu of the Uchiha clan. It is a genjutsu which affects the target through physical sensations shared between them and the user. Like its counterpart, in exchange for the temporary ability that it grants the user, the Sharingan with which Izanami is cast is rendered blind and loses its light forever. According to Itachi, this technique and Izanagi form a pair, but unlike the latter, which is a technique capable of altering destiny, Izanami is instead one that “decides” it.

Now if you ask me what that means it sounds like you are stuck in a loop of pain shared between you and the user. After using it you go blind. Now that is some freaky jutsu. I bet you my bottom dollar Itachi done did it. The man so bad he probably did it as he walk in the cave. I know I am giving him more credit than he deserve but while these man talking Itachi checking out the scene. Done put a plan together. So don’t get to excited next week. We have a flashback episode. The star of that episode will be Kabuto. Yes an episode dedicated to the man who secretly had a man crush with Orochimaru. Yes I said it. We all know this man probably had tons of wet dreams of him in his arms with those snakes wrapped around him. Naruto why you hate me so much!! Haven’t I been faithful!! Show me some action!! Look like a crack head I need a fix. Gimmie something that will make me want to watch the next episode. Don’t tell me I am coming back to see this man back story. I DON’T CARE FOR HIM!! Anyway see you guys next week. I can’t wait…

Next episode. Why I wear Glasses still even though I am a snake and see with my tongue.
