CCleaner

I’m the dedicated free technical support guy for my friends and family. It’s a thankless job. At best, you get a thank you and a pat on the back. At worst, you have to deliver the bad news to a loved one that they’re going to be spending some serious money in the near future. Luckily my hits are far greater than my misses.

CCleaner is not new software by any definition, but it is something every Windows user should Read More →

Duck Dynasty Beard Booth

We’re tremendous Duck Dynasty fans in this house. When I saw that there was a free Duck Dynasty Beard Booth app recently released, I squealed like a little yuppie girl at a Justin The Beaver concert. I couldn’t install it on my phone fast enough (available on Android and iOS) and start playing around.

You can choose from four Robertson beards. Phil, Si, Jase, and of course, Willie. The application is very simple to use. Snap your picture, zoom in as to suit your tastes, then pick a beard. The beards can be manipulated to fit your face. I was kind of sad that I couldn’t get Phil’s (my favorite!) to match up on my mug very well, but it was fun trying. You may also choose a caption from a list of the show’s more common catch phrases, but that is entirely optional.

Obviously the Duck Dynasty Beard Booth app isn’t going to increase your productivity in any way, in fact it will probably do the opposite. It certainly is fun for what it is though! Made me ‘Happy, happy, happy!’ at least for a few minutes. Considering the price (free), I’m giving it a ‘Yea!’ If you try it out, share your photos in the comment section!

Shush!

Whenever I’m in a quiet room, it’s a big deal for me to make sure I’m not ‘that guy’ who has his cell phone go off. Cell phone etiquette is quite important to me, as I am a shy guy, and easily embarrassed. So it goes without saying that I adhere to those silence standards almost without fail. My problem arises about eight hours (and ten or so missed calls, and probably fifty missed texts) later, because I forgot to turn my cellular noise maker back on. Shush! is an Android application that fixes that.

When you install Shush!, every time you switch over to silent mode, a little spin dial will appear. Drag it to however many hours and /or minutes you want you phone to stay quiet. After that, it automatically switches your noisy notifications back on, without any input needed from your forgetful self. Simple and ingenious, huh? The best inventions always are.

Shush! takes up hardly any room on your device, and has no noticeable affect on the speed your hardware. My phone is snail slow, so I’d definitely be able to tell if it did. For the amazing price of ‘free,’ this little app can’t be beat. ‘Yea!’
