A couple of mentionables...

I just wanted to point out a couple things I saw in the appstore that are worth mentioning and don't seem to be getting much attention.

Snowball Runner - A pretty darn good game with perfect accelometer controls where you control a snowball that keeps getting bigger with every object you swallow up. Crash into trees and houses, and you shrink. Believe me, it's challenging. It's one of those games where you keep trying to get a higher score, but for 99 cents, it's really worth it.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Not a game, I know, but I'm not posting two different threads, and the game sections gets more traffic. Anyways, for those who are planning to see the movie, already did, or aren't at all, it's an awesome read. It's short, no doubt, but it's got to be one of those most unique and entertaining longish-short story I've read in a long time. And at also 99 cents, I really wouldn't miss it. I mean, I'm not easily easily moved by stories, but I was still thinking about it after I read it. The interface is pretty awesome, too. I actually got into the book.


And those are my two mentionables.

EDIT: Forgot links...

to post the link into a smaller word

type your word, highlight it, then click insert link, and post the link
and it should work

and as for the drunk guy, congrats
but if you want to get the link from the itunes store

move your fuzzy vibrating, pointing device on the screen about 100 meters over the also fuzzy and spinning app icon, right click, or bang your fist down onto your mouse until the right click function is enabled
and copy the url

then paste it by inserting link
then, vomit cause you drank a lil too much jager
ahh good times..good times
