Just a quick little heads-up. There is going to be a theme give away going on at TechKon on Monday, April 2. It is for a very complete, sleek red and black theme called FurianHaz3. So make sure you look for that post on Monday the 2. It is by a very good themer named @iHaz3. Here are some screenshots to get you excited.
Just wanted to give my friends a heads up since you might not otherwise hear of it! Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
TechKon Staff and friend.
That’s right folks, Apple brought us quite a few treats today including an update to Garageband!
What’s New in Version 1.2

These are some of the new features that are included in the update! I am most excited for the ability to record music with other people! A new and creative way to collaborate wherever you are! So go and check it out on iTunes! Here is the link.
Just a quick little update! I just pushed the release of Immercify v.1.1 with is pretty awesome on an iPad! The changes include a security update and better control with RSS feed but other then that not much has changed. Here is a screenshot of what it looks like on the iPad.

Yesterday after a weird episode at church, I felt a sudden urge to be homeschooled. Going into the school year I felt that this would be the last thing I would want to do because I wanted to be in school with other kids. Yet, I don’t anymore…I didn’t even know this or feel any inclination towards it until right before the pastor stopped preaching and I suddenly felt an urge that I need to be homeschooled. I don’t know why God would want this to happen but I have a few of my own ideas which I will share as soon as I get a better idea of it becoming a reality. I want to excel in school but haven’t feeling like I have been. I have just wondered through but not really realize what I wanted. Now I feel I have a better idea and shall work on achieving those goals. Thanks just felt like I needed to share that!
You heard right, Research In Motion is said to be laying off 2,000 employees as a part of there restructuring
“As part of this broad effort, RIM is reducing its global workforce across all functions by approximately 2,000 employees. RIM intends to notify impacted employees in North America and certain other countries this week. The remainder of the global work force reductions will occur at a later date subject to local laws and regulations. All impacted employees will receive severance packages and outplacement support.”
This statement by Research In Motion states the cuts it needs to make in order to be more efficient and not be lost in the smartphone war.This statement goes to show what Apple has done to other smartphone companies. These cuts come due to the shift in sales of blackberry® products and their tablet the Playbook has not done as well as hoped against Apple’s iPad. This combined effort will result in this initial layoff and then more at a later time if the need arises.
