Its the time of the year again to hunt for interesting gadgets. My wife is looking to buy a new phone for herself that can help with her blogging and is looking at “phablets” – short for mobile phone and tablet hybrids. She has set her eyes on a Samsung Galaxy Note which would be quite awkward since its Android – but well its hard to convince her otherwise once she makes up her mind. I would have preferred if we looked at
asus tablet deals, but then again that’s just me.
Amazing Spiderman App
In between our busy practices, work and school schedule, my son and I find time to play our current favorite iPad game – Gameloft’s Amazing Spiderman. It’s not as “amazing” to me, but my son’s jaw dropped the first time he was swinging around New York City.
Instead of following the story line or helping NY City residents, my son simply swings around the city enjoying the sites, jumping on curt hitches and attacking the occasional bad guys that may pass his way.
The game has an impressive landscape of New York, with even the Central Park and Manhattan area faithfully reproduced – making Spiderman’s unique way of commuting enjoyable.
Israel Houghton and Planet Shakers in Manila
Last month, we were blessed to join the worship concert of Israel Houghton and Planet Shakers at the Araneta Colliseum. We were able to get good seats up front and were even able to get pictures at the stage before the concert started.
While checking out their gear – I was surprised to find out that they were using Line 6 PodHD 500 floor pedals straight to PA!
The concert went really well, and although I was a bit skeptical at first – thinking that Israel and the guys from Planetshakers might have that rockstar mentality – I was proven wrong with their dedication to God and their careful way of making sure that the audience know that Jesus is the center – its all about God. Now if only we could have someone like Israel doing a praise and worship workshop at our local church – that would be really awesome! Or maybe have a video or audio conferencing from ActConferencing.com – teaching through the internet!
All in all it was an experience that I’ll never forget – like a preview of how the worship will be in heaven. I’ll be sure to buy front seat tickets again when they go back.
