Ready for #PortalAppealReview 16 to 1.
I haven't hacked out a media object since news items started popping up in my scanner app.The media objects had the advantage of you could look at them when it was convenient (and recycle them for a few XM). You have to look for news if you dismiss it from your scanner when it comes up when you don't want to look at it.
Just as it would be extraordinarily helpful to have a list of portals held, a list of portals visited, and a list of portals favorited ....
it would be helpful to have a reverse chronological list of recent past news items. This could even appear next to the alerts tab
These lists need not take inventory space
We took VT Rte 15 from Jefferson to Burlington to do some bike riding. The GPS suggested a different route at first that it said involved dirt roads, but we had and followed directions that kept us on paved roads. On the way back the GPS again said that dirt roads were necessary, we ignored it, intending to follow the directions that we had. We got off of I89 at VT15, which was an exit before the GPS route, and it calculated a new route. Though we tried to follow VT15, we missed a turn somewhere when the GPS directed us a different way. We found ourselves in an area that didn't have the shopping centers that we had seen on the way out, but the view was nice. Since we were time limited and the computed route showed that we would get back in time with only minutes to spare we didn't try turning around. We knew we were going the right way due to the location of the mountains and the compass indicator. After a couple of turns we found ourselves on the promised dirt road. Then it got more interesting as the road got steep and then narrowed to one lane. Eventually the road returned to two lanes and we got back to pavement. After a steep down hill and a sharp turn we were on VT108, which is where we wanted to be.
I guess it's time to either buy a new GPS or new maps for the current GPS.
If you haven't already seen the Transporter (http://geekbeat.tv/transporter), it's a unique new drive technology that lets you replicate all of your files (or just the ones you want) to other physical locations. So you put Transporter "A" at home, and Transporter "B" at work. They stay synced up through the InterTubez automagically!
Well, our friends over at the Transporter project gave me a PAIR to give away to one of YOU! :-) Here's how you win:
1) Do you have me in a Circle? Yeah! Step 1 complete.
2) Circle !
3) Publicly share this post.
What, you want more chances to win? :-) Ok, leave a comment below telling me what you'll do with a couple of these for another chance. I plan to share my movies and stuff with family. How about you?
WHAT? You still want MORE chances to win? :-P Ok, well, *is giving away another pair* right here:
Of course, the best thing you can do is head over to the Transporter Kickstarter page and back the project! http://geekbeat.tv/transporter I've already done it, and so have 342 other people! They're 2/3rds of the way done!!!
PS - The giveaway is limited to the US. Hopefully they'll have a successful Kickstarter launch and go International after that! :-D
PSS - You'll get yours after the development is complete. So it'll take a couple months, but you'll be among the first to get one!!!
