I Like This – October 6, 2010

A collection of interesting items I found in my daily reading.

  • Baked Potato Soup – October 5, 2010
  • #1815 – Cheese Appetizers – October 5, 2010 – This sounds a bit odd, but something worth trying for a party, I think.
  • Almost A Year After It Hit Android, Google Finally Adds Goggles To The iPhone – October 5, 2010 – Looking forward to trying out this visual search feature on my iPhone. The better camera in the iPhone 4 has increased the utility of many other scanning and augmented reality apps and I expect this will help with Google Goggles, as well. As the author noted, the updated app has not appeared yet in the Apple App store, but I will download it as soon as it is available.
  • Peanut Butter Nutella Crispy Bars – October 5, 2010 – Nearly everything is made better with the addition of Nutella. (LAUGH)
  • Keep Your Eyes on the Road: Police to Get Aggressive on Distracted Drivers – October 4, 2010 – Be aware and be safe. We all need a reminder to not drive distracted, for any number of reasons. Use this notice to re-dedicate yourself to keeping your mind on the road — I know I will.
  • WGA Awards Adds Two New Media Categories – October 4, 2010 – Good to see New Media folks garnering some recognition. I expect more award possibilities in the future, too.
  • Pumpkin Latte – October 4, 2010 – Tis the season to go “pumpkin”! It is cool and drizzling here in LA today, so this Pumkin Latte would certainly hit the spot. This takes a bit more work than your typical “cup o’ joe” but would make a nice treat for spoiling yourself on a cool, Fall, day.
  • A Hidden Oasis in Little Tokyo – October 1, 2010 – This looks like a nice place to visit. I wish I had know about it when I was downtown for jury duty. I think I will meet up with my friends Liam and Rachel who live near downtown and visit and then grab a bowl of ramen in nearby Little Tokyo.
  • Pumpkin Granola – October 1, 2010 – I like that this doesn’t contain any butter or oil, which reduces the fat in most granolas. The pumpkin and spice additions give it a nice twist.
  • Tomato Basil and Romano Ricotta Spaghetti Pies – October 1, 2010 – Sort of fussy presentation, but something i would consider making for guests or a small party. None of the ingredients are hard to come by, but the little springform pans are a little “uni-tasker” for my liking. Maybe another sort of would work and still give the effect.
  • The 19 Revenue Sources For WebSeries Creators « MindOnMedia[Sales] – September 30, 2010 – Great article to help answer a question I get all the time. There were a few things I hadn’t thought of here, too.
  • The Tango iPhone App: My New Favorite Way To Make Video Calls Over 3G [Video] – September 30, 2010 – Downloading this right now to give it a try. Always looking a new ways to connect and communicate, especially when they are free.
  • How to Play Any Media File in iTunes [ITunes] – September 29, 2010 – This won’t allow you to move the files to an iPod, but it does offer a bit of flexibility when playing files from other sources. A quick test here with an AVi file from an older Flip camera shows it working well, as long as you have the free Flip4Mac and Perian software installed to deal with actually playing the AVi data.
  • Toasted Parmesan Rinds – September 29, 2010 – Wow, never thought about doing this. We use the rinds to flavor soups and stocks but this sounds like something to try. BTW, if you aren’t buying real Parmaggiano-Reggiano, you are missing out on a sublime taste. We buy ours through CostCo, of all places, but it is an amazing step up from other parmesan products — and you get to try out this tip, too.
