NodeBeat for putting together some tunes

If you like putting together some tunes you might want to try Nodebeat. Nodebeat is a simple tool that lets you create your own beats in a simple creative way. It is available on Android and in IOS. 

How it works is that you will have blank screen. On the left side you will have the notes that are in forms of circles such as the image shown. The main circle in the middle shoots out the beat. When it hits the other circle it produces a sound. 

Each one of the colored circles represents a different type of sound. As you drag the circles further away from the main circle it will take longer for the beat to make a sound. So all of that goes into timing.

Google Plus New Look

Google Plus has had a major overhaul to the look and feel. When companies redesign something as much as they have on Google Plus, they always run the risk of loosing individuals who simply do not like the changes. There were quite a few people who felt this way about Facebook and their new Timeline profile page. 

In the Google Plus case, the change is very dramatic. If you have had a Google Plus account for a while and use it, the changes will effect you more as you may have already been in a routine. For the people who have not used it, or not logged in awhile, you should have not problem getting used to it quickly.

Facebook Instagram

As you may have all seen, Facebook is buying Instagram for 1 billion dollars. Yup that is correct 1 Billion dollars. Instagram is a great photo tool, however is it worth 1 billion dollars? It will be interesting to see how it works out. 

Facebook does have some limitations and photos is one of these limitations. If you have read some of our previous posts on Google Plus, you will have seen how much we have stressed the unique feature of instant syncing your photos with your account. 

This might be Facebook's way of doing this with a tool that is already widely used. It will be interesting to see how they will work all of this out with each having their own apps. Stay posted for new updates. 

If you have any comments or questions on the acquisition please post below.

Lady Gaga Little Monsters Website

If you did not know, Lady Gaga and team released  a website called Little Monsters. It is very close to being a clone of Pinterest. However unlike Pinterest you will not find a whole lot of pins that do not relate to Lady Gaga. 

If you are a Lady Gaga fan, you might be able to find everything you would ever need to know about her. Pictures, Anti-Bullying slogans, fashion, and fans. Very dedicated fans! So if you are looking for some sense of belonging, this might be the site for you.

Google Project Glass

Google Project Glass has introduced a pair of Smart Glasses that are pretty much a wearable cell phone. Trying to picture a wearable computer has been difficult given the limitations of technology. People have tried in the past, only to come up with glasses you had to strap in with a computer. They looked more like a rigged bomb than anything else. With Project Glass theses glasses seem to pull it off. 

Something that has always killed wearable glasses is battery life. With the changes in battery technology, and Google keeping these glasses simple, they might be able to pull off a device that is actually practical. 

In the video posted below, you will notice that the glasses do no feature a full fledged operating system like you would find on a phone or a computer.

HTC Evo 4g LTE

The HTC Evo 4G is going to be the One X on Sprint. It has a very nice looking design and will it will have a 4.7 inch screen. HTC is doing a great job of keeping a line of devices available on other carriers. There are some differences, but over all they are the same. 

With the HTC Evo 4G LTE, it's pretty much like comparing a Ford Fusion to a Lincoln MKZ. The Evo being the Lincoln with some better features. From the front it looks the same as One X, however on the back you get a totally different looking phone. 

Look at the image below and you will see the Evo has a rear kickstand and a button set up just for pictures. Now the back end does look a little different, it kind of makes you think of the days of the HTC Droid Incredible. Everyone was scratching their heads but thought it was kind of cool at the same time. 

What makes the rear of the camera stick out is the bottom part being a flat black color and the top being glossy. You add the Red Kickstand and you get a phone that really stands out while you hold it to you head. People are either going to love or hate this.

Google Plus

Google Plus seems to be a site that not a lot of people are using. Although Google is boasting they now have over 100 million users, it still seems very difficult to find many friends using it. This might seem bad, however it might make it one of the best times to start using Google Plus. 

If you have a business, using a Google Plus pages is a great way to promote your company giving you a competitive edge while other slowly trickle in. Google Plus does seem like its is going to be around for quite some time, unlike Google Buzz or Google Wave.

Samsung Flexible Phone

According to news outlets, Samsung is going to release flexible phones sometime this year. If you are unfamiliar with flexible phones, they will be able to twist much as the ones seen in this photo. Samsung has already released phones with curved glass, adding flexible glass is another way of showing that they are ahead of the game. 

In all practicality however, why would you need a phone that flexes. It might be pretty cool to show off for a while, and it might just be a little more comfortable in your pocket. However, after that it will just be a phone that is floppy.
