Winning Can't Be Losing...Sheen Hop =Winning!

Honestly I've loved Charlie Sheen's roles in TV and movies from the beginning, and Two In A Half Men is hit! One of my favorite online DJs, DJ Steve Porter put together two great mixes for you.  The first one is a spoof off of his Street Hop with a great shout out to Allen Iverson, but the second one is excellent it feels like a full song just like when Street Hop came out.  Enjoy people.

Word(Feud) With Friends???

After a month and some change going by of Words With Friends (WWF) being on Android OS, I have concluded that I still like WordFeud (WF) better. WWF is a good game but in comparison to WF is lacking in so many departments. I'll break it down for you.

WWF Good (Compared to WF)
  • Ability to play against iOS and Android friends
  • Ability to play against iOS and Android friends (I listed this twice because it holds the most weight for now...)
  • Beautiful Bright Interface
  • Nice Sound Effects (if you are into that sort of thing, but for me I'm using playing it places I shouldn't be playing games and I prefer silence
  • Tells you if a word is not a word a lot quicker than WF

WWF Downfalls (Compared to WF)
  • Can't save opponents to a friends list so to have easy access to play them again later.
  • Crashes, Force Closes, and Corrupts Games on Android OS. They have come out with several updates since the original launch so I'm sure at some point they will get this right. The quick fix is to uninstall and reinstall the game, which forces you to log back in with your username so that it can redownload your game information (or for the geeks go to Application Settings and clear cache and content).
  • The button to Resign the game is on the main screen, so it can accidentally be hit
  • Its cool that if you shake the phone it Shuffles your letters, but can I just get a button? I don't want to shake my phone a bunch of times while I'm attempting to figure out what words I can make from my letters.
  • The Ads pop up after every word you play and the load a lot slower. So it seems to take longer to exit out of them
  • Its too easy to make super ridiculous point words because the Special Blocks are closer together so like a 4 letter word can get Triple Letter and Triple word, opposed to you needing make a 5 letter word in WF
  • Lack of options (Maybe that’s the former Blackberry User in me, but I like having options)
  • Only 1 board. WF has a standard and random boards to play when you get tired of the same special tile placement
  • The Chat function is a bit slower. But honestly the Chat function in WF is the best in the world, hit me on Twitter or GChat if u want to talk trash for real...lol
  • I feel like there are a few other things that I didn't like about WWF compared to WF but I can't think about them right now. But if anyone else has any complaints leave it in the comments section. LOL
To sum that up WWF just seems be lacking and very buggy.

The WordFeud developers site posted this about a month ago, which pretty much means the slight upper hand that WWF had over WF will be taken away from them.

Take Android Screenshots Without Being Rooted (via Android Central)

I tend to take screenshots and post them then people ask me "how did u do that?"

My only answer is "Root Root Root". LOL, but Rooting isn't for everyone so here's an article I found on the Android Central Tips & Tricks site for Screenshots for Non-Rooted users. I will say honestly its easy as pie once you are rooted, but once again being a SUPERUSER isn't for everyone.

Hey everyone.  Here's a quick tip that often gets overlooked amidst the madness. Since everyone loves to show off their Android homescreen setup, Let's talk about how to do it if you're not rooted and not running a home replacement. This works for all devices regardless of any home customizations done by the handset maker. Hit the break to follow along.
The first step is setting up the SDK on your computer. We covered that for Windows users in-depth here, so we will touch briefly for you folks running a Mac or Linux.
  • Make sure you download the correct sdk for your platform.
  • Make sure you're up to date with the Java Run Time Envrionment from Sun.
  • Mac users: Update this from the Apple menu, Ubuntu users sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre.
After you have the SDK all set up, the hard part's over.  Just follow along and you'll be taking screenshots in no time.

1.  Plug your phone into your computer and start up the ddms tool. On a Windows machine, you open your SDK\tools folder and double click the icon (see the picture below). On Linux or a Mac, open your terminal in the sdk/tools and enter ./ddms
Android SDK\tools folder in Windows

2.  Make sure you select your device from the list in the right pane of the ddms application, then select device -> screen capture from the menu bar.  See the picture below.
The ddms utility window
3.  Grab your phone, set up the image you want to grab, and hit the refresh button (see the image below).  When you're satisfied with the results, click save and tell the ddms app where to save it.

And that's it!  All that's left is to hit the forums and share your screenshots with the world.
