The Good, the Bad, the Nerdy

10th March

Today there is a generation of students who don’t know the real struggles of being limited to twenty-seven photo camera shots, including holding a button for three to five seconds just for a single camera flash, then taking said camera to a local shop to get your photos developed. I take great pride in my geeky antics when I happen to come across really awesome gadgets or apps. So here are three camera tech reviews of the Good, the Bad, and the Nerdy.

The Good. If you’re like me and the rest of the world, the ratio of pictures you have on your phone to actual photo prints is about 500 to 1. On the rarest of occasions, we’ll decide to print off a handful from the hundreds of pictures we take. The Polaroid Pop is not the first of its … Read More »

You sit in school and wonder what you’re going to do after the last bell rings. You know there are things to be done, but you don’t know the priority or the details. All the while the loads of laundry are climbing and the grass is growing taller. You know if you don’t get your bedroom cleaned, it’s not going to be a grand time being grounded, all the while your unfinished homework keeps piling up. You have to figure out a way to compile the things you need to do in one place, but you don’t keep paper around anymore because you use your phone more than anything.

The app Wunderlist is what you’re looking for. This app is available on both Android and Apple platforms. You can use this app for the simple to-do list to keep track of … Read More »

Winter break is just beyond the horizon, and I’m sure many of you are only a few days away from a glorious two-three week vacation. So, what better way to enjoy the break than spending eight more hours a day glued to your smartphone? Hopefully, with the help of this app, you can not only spend less time on your phone and enjoy your time with friends and family but also unlock some pretty sweet features you didn’t your phone could do.

IF by IFTTT is an app that can easily be used to make simple connections between most of your favorite phone applications. IFTTT, an online and smartphone app, stands for “If This Then That”.

23rd October

It’s a Thursday night, and you are bored out of your mind. What do you do? I would almost guarantee you grab your iPhone and open Instagram to see what your friends and acquaintances are doing. You swipe down through a couple “TBT” photos and see a funny dog picture—double tap for a like—then you stop.

There is a beautiful picture of a stream with the text of Psalm 23:2 overlaid on top in a really cool way. The text changes colors as it gets closer to the stream, and a splash of water actually covers the text. It’s as though Psalm 23:2 is living within the world of this picture. The perspective is like you are looking up at the text, and it really looks 3D! They obviously made this in Photoshop, right? There’s no way that you could … Read More »

There are an endless amount of things to buy—from the nicest clothes to the next Apple device. There’s always going to be something to buy, and there will always be ways to spend your money. We want to ever endure in God’s financial blessings, but are we keeping track of our money in the way we should. Are you shorting God, or are you shorting yourself?

We often hear that the love of money is the root of all evil (I Timothy 6:10) However, how often do we allow our materialistic items to rule our day? As soon as we get a notification on our phone we must answer, and we see our friend with the new coolest trend, we have the urge to rush to the nearest store. We should each take the opportunity to analyze our routines on … Read More »
