Ep 33: iPity: The iPhone App Show

December 21, 2009

The iPity app is a fun app for your iPhone or iPod Touch. It’s basically a soundboard of Mr. T saying, including the ever popular “I Pity The FOOL!” and “Got no time for the Jibba Jabba!”

Download: iPity FREE!

I noticed that some of the lines from this app come from an old Mr. T movie called Toughest Man in the World and The A Team. What is your favorite Mr. T line?

PROJECT FOR AWESOME: The Salvation Army

December 17, 2009

The VlogBrothers are organizing this years PROJECT FOR AWESOME!

The Project for Awesome is a campaign on YouTube where a bunch of video creators make a video highlighting their favorite charity. Then Nerdfighteria bands together and goes CRAZY watching, commenting, rating, etc. all of the Project for Awesome Videos!

This is their 3rd year doing this!

What is the purpose of this? The purpose and ultimate goal is to get these videos to the TOP of YouTube so that these charities are all over the Front Page of YouTube. You will know when one is on the Front Page because all of the videos share the same Thumbnail.

There is a LIVE STREAM going on all day today where you can go and be a part of the Project for AWESOME and chat with everyone involved!

If you have a couple of minutes today, watch my video (it’s really only 5 mins, but we had to game the YouTube system to get the correct thumbnail). Also, go and give all of the Project for Awesome videos 5 Stars, leave comments on the videos, and show them some YouTube love.

You can find all of this years Project for Awesome Videos hopefully on the Front Page or by clicking here!

Also, take a moment, and over in the side bar (that’s the thing to the right) click on my Red Kettle, and give a little bit to my charity of choice this year, The Salvation Army.

ANGEL TREE MISSION

December 14, 2009

My wife and I went to the mall and we picked up four Angel Tree Children. We searched for the perfect toys and clothes for them for five hours, and we came up with some good stuff!

We got the clothes at Sears and JC Penny. Skateboard came from Toys ‘R Us. Ariel dolls, coloring book, and wrestling figures we found at Target! The Angel Tree program ended December 14

… BUT …

I challenge you to find an organization in your area, and GIVE! That is what Christmas is all about! And if you don’t feel like going anywhere, you can go to The Salvation Army Website and give to the Little Red Bucket Virtually!

Also, The Salvation Army has an iPhone APP! You can get your own bell to ring. I think I am going to find a bell ringer in my town and stand next to them and ring my iPhone Bell for the Salvation Army!

What did you do for someone you didn’t know this Christmas?

Ep 31: Autostitch: The iPhone App Show

December 9, 2009

Autostitch is a great application for creating great panoramic pictures from your iPhone. I used to use Pano, but I realized that Autostitch allows for you to take vertical panoramas. It a lot less time consuming trying to line up your photos.

Download Autostitch! It’s GREAT!

Here is the high quality version of the photo from Autostitch.

In the next episode, I will show you an app where you can clean up this picture, and make it useable and cool looking!

So you might be asking, “Lane what did you get for your birthday?”. Well I “opened” (which means I went with my wife to pick it up at Office Depot and it was never really wrapped) gift a little early. I decided that I wanted to learn some Japanese, so I got the Rosetta Stone – Japanese.

So far I am really liking the software, it is definitely one of the best language learning tools that I have used, and so far, I highly recommend it!

Also, I asked everyone to find 10 people they know and get them to subscribe to me as a FREE birthday gift from you to me! Thanks in Advance! You guys/gals are AWESOMELY SHIGGITY SHANK!

My wife also got some Tasty Treats, as iJustine would say, and I eat one of them for you!

If you didn’t know, PhillyD and I (LaneVids) share the same birthday, so I sang The Happy Birthday song to both of us!

Thank you to everyone online who wished me a Happy Birthday! It was very much appreciated, and it was fun responding to all of your Tweets, Facebook Wall Posts, YouTube Comments, etc!
