While it patiently await my ingress invite I decided to decorate the wall in my entrance hallway…
It the Niantic project logo made in plastic, glued to the wall in 116 x 92 cm…
Sorry about the watermark on the pictures but it has come to my attention that a little prick called Mohammad Kayyali from Amman has been ripping off my art and submitting it as his own, and he actually got a code from my work! This goes out to you Mohammad! You lying little schmuck, I hope your code is invalid and that every device you play Ingress on gets bricked you little thief!
Drawing is not my strong side, well I can’t draw to save my life to be honest and getting it on the wall was a right pain so some of the angles are a bit wrong but it’s close enough I think…
Hopefully Brandon Badger over at Niantic Labs like it and maybe grant me access….
Google is testing out a new kind of game for mobile devices, the game is called Ingress and is currently invite only. As far as we have been told the point of the game is to find something called Exotic mater around the world, yes the real world… since our invite has yet to arrive we can’t tell you a lot about it but check out this video
Or check out our good friend Johnny’s post about it here! We will be back once we can…
According to Bits blogger Nick Bilton Google is working on some high tech glasses with built in Heads Up Display or HUD for short. This will allow wearers to access all sorts of information literally right in front of they’re eyes!
According to unnamed sources the users navigate or flip through the info using head movements, these movements are according to Nick’s sources easy to learn. The glasses are supposed to be Android based which might mean they can connect to your Android phone and allow video calls of some sort. The same unnamed sources say the glasses will cost about the same as regular smart phones which translates to about $250-$600 US Dollars and the glasses are said to look somewhat like Oakley’s Thump 2.
The glasses support both 3G and 4G and use a vast variety of sensors like motion and GPS, and will be tapping into allot of Google’s existing products like Latitude for Check-in’s and Google Goggles to search for information. The glasses will have a low resolution camera built-in that will help monitor the world around you and let the Glasses overlay information relative to your location.
We hope we can get our hands on a pair of these when they hit the open market because this sounds to sweet to miss and if they work like we hope they will be a nerd’s “must have”

If you’re worried that hackers might hack your e-mail, Facebook or other sites we recommend using Google Alerts.
Google Alerts primary function is to keep tabs on new information on a subject that matter to you but it can also be used to check if any hackers have hacked you and posted the logon info on forums or other places like pastebin.
Go to Google Alerts and set up your own monitors on subjects like your main e-mail or a special username and let Google handle the rest. You may have to log in using your Google account
Now the funny geeks at Google have released a new feature…
SNOW! Yes… snow… just head over too Google and type “let it snow” and see for your self
Fist of it starts to snow and you will notice that your screen seems to freeze like a window in your house
Then after a while your screen freezes completely and you can’t see anything…
Now you can choose to remove all the frost by clicking “Defrost” or you can have some Christmas fun and use your mouse pointer too left click and drag/scrape the frost away like we did
If you do click the “Defrost” button you are still left with just the falling snow, tho the screen will not freeze over again. If you don’t want to close the window to get rid of the snow effect you can type in “stop the snow” this will deactivate the falling snow!
We decided to keep it on for the holidays, It is after all just Christmas once a year!
