I've used 40GB of data on YouTube this month! I just watch people playing games, I don't know why...

I was withdrawing some cash from an ATM earlier, a young man came up to me and asked if I needed help. Come on... I know I'm old but it doesn't mean that I don't know how to use any electronic device 😂.

Posts on Google.
Here's one more thing that will end Google+! It's called Posts on Google.

The way it works is that you can post directly to Google search. So when people search for you, they will see your posts in the search results. The posts can contain texts, videos, gifs and images. It's not only for people, but also places, bands and so on.

Currently it's only open to very limited group of people especially those in Brazil. It may well be opened to everybody else too.

Zombie Gunship Survival
A follow-up to Zombie Gunship, still in beta. It's pretty good. It has a base management element, so maybe a more strategic game. The graphics and sound effects are also very good.

In space going to the bathroom takes skills 😂.

YouTube community tab.
This is what's coming up very soon on YouTube that will kill off Google+ for good!

There will be a new tab on your channel called "Community". Here, you can post things other than videos, ie: gifs, images and texts too. The idea is that users won't need to head over to Facebook or Twitter or God forbid, Google+ if they want to post something that is not a video.

Currently, only some users have the community tab on their channels. I'm sure it will be expanded to all users. But as always, I have to wonder who come up with names over there at Google. Seriously, "Community" was the best they could come up with?! 

View the tab on the YouTube Help channel here,

Lightning fast Google.
Normally I have 4G, at least 3.5G connection on my phones. Currently however, the Internet connection I have on my phones has been reduced to 3G even 2.5G speed. This will continue like this for the next month, don't ask me to explain why ☺.

Anyway, I've found something really interesting. I've noticed that the Google+ app and other Google apps are still loading data from the servers as if I'm still enjoying 4G speed. In comparison, the Facebook app can still load text elements fast enough, but everything else takes forever to load. Similarly with the Twitter app, while Instagram cannot load a damn thing.

Now since this is the same with all Google apps, it must be due to file compression. Other Google apps include Chrome browser, Google Play Newstand, Play Store, Photos and so on. I must emphasize that the difference in load speeds between the Google apps and the non-Google apps was so obvious. I was amazed by the difference!

So Google must have found the secret sauce for file compression. I wonder if they will share the technology with others ☺.

This is a pretty good horror game. It's a point and click game but as a side-scroller. It begins with you knelt down and somebody pointing a gun at your head then something happens, the screen goes dark

You find yourself in a dark forest and the adventure begins. There will be monsters, spooky graveyards and a creaky bridge too. Being a point and click game, it is basically a puzzle game. Accompanying you through the journey is a creepy soundtrack and very good sound effects. Despite being a side-scroller, the graphics are still in 3-D and are actually very good thanks to the Unity engine. The controls are as simple as it could get, just tap and double tap that's it. If you get stuck, there are hints as well.

At just USD1.80 and 75MB, just get it, it's worth it.
