Blonde With Monkeys

A blonde motorist was about two hours from San Diego when she was flagged down by a man whose truck had broken down The man asked, “Are you going to San Diego ?”
“Sure,” answered the blonde, “do you need a lift?”
“Not for me. I’ll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I’ve got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be taken to the San Diego Zoo. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me? I’ll give you $100 for your trouble.”
“I’d be happy to,” said the blonde. So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blond’s car and off they went.

Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of San Diego when suddenly he saw the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps. He pulled off the road and ran over to the blond. What the heck are you doing here?” he demanded, “I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo.”
“Yes, I know you did,” said the blonde,” but we had money left over—so now we’re going to Sea World.”

O the random stuff my Dad sends me.

Fun With Tasker

A few months back I had found a development thread on XDA-Developers forum about a proxy app that runs on rooted phones, when someone asked if there was a way to have it turn on for a specific WIFI SSID, but it wasn’t part of the app. One of the posters gave some almost useful instructions on using an app called Tasker to automate the process. So I went and got Tasker and never got any where with it until a few days ago.

Since the app was running in the task bar I started messing with it before falling asleep and to my surprise they did have good help and even a few wiki sites that talked about how to set up different tasks. I tried the one that turned WIFI off when not at locations you can connect to but it wasn’t specific to where it was unless I left the GPS on all the time and that wasn’t a solution. But by playing with that one I started to understand how things worked, and tried a few of the others on the wiki.

I now have tasks that turn off the sound at night unless it is a stared contact calling, it turns off the WIFI when I dock it in a car dock, and have it setup to turn on the GPS when an app I know needs it is started and shuts off when it closes. A few other little ones make notifications reminding me to take vitamins since I’m trying to live healthier. There are a few things that I still want to setup and from everything I can see it’s all possible.

So if you’re looking for a way to have your phone automate things for you that you do often check out Tasker in the Android Market.

Android Market on PC

So Google released the Android Market on PCs in a web browser a few days ago, and from my playing around with it, it’s kind of cool. There is lots of work to be done though but it’s a start. First you can install apps from the website and have it install on your device right away. This makes it really nice so you don’t have to do all that scan a QR code or send a link to the phone or what not. Second it’s easier to find apps you may want to use, and it’s easier to see what they are with more images and even videos of the apps. But finally the bad part is it is always trying to get you to get the paid apps, which is ok but I like to find free apps and if I like them to get the paid version with more features.

Other then the fact that it wants all paid apps, I like being able to get new apps easy.
