Full Metal Chopsticks

Mark and Wes at the Ohgane Korean BBQ in Oakland, CA .

Sites of Interest:

Wes' iPhone/Blackberry Applications of the week:

  • Later Dude Pro - Blackberry app to create call back reminders.

  • Cube - single player and multiplayer first person shooter that provides satisfying and fast oldskool gameplay; kind of like Quake.

Mark's iPhone Applications of the week:

  • SimplyTweet - Mark's favorite Twitter app this week (he always changes his mind). Includes push notification for your Reply and Direct tweets.

  • BoxCar - Provides push notifications for Reply and Direct tweets, but that's all it does. Useful if your favorite twitter app doesn't already have this function.
  • iGPUtrace - For iPhone 3GS only because it uses the new GPU and the compass. Just a demo of what the GPU can do, but fun to play with because it demos a virtual reality by moving the iPhone around in front of you.

  • RedLaser - realtime barcode scanner, supports all standard UPC and EAN barcodes and looks up the products in a database. (Mark said it was a jailbreak app and it is, but he found out that it has also been in the App Store for a while so anyone can buy it.)

Mark & Wes:

I have downloaded this Slurpcast and I will be listening to it on my iPhone while on the train from Los Angeles to Seattle. If you want to wave across the Bay, we will be at Jack London Square in Oakland on Thursday, 30 July from 9:32 pm - 9:47 pm; and again on Monday, 10 August from 8:35 am - 8:50 am. Thanks for the on-train entertainment!
