Check out the zillow app

Find out what houses are worth anywhere. Really cool app. I used it last week in Naples Florida to figure out what specific houses were worth. You can go with a google earth type ariel view or a map type view and zoom in on specific neighborhoods and homes. It will give you detailed info on the house when you click on the home. I prefer the real google earth type view b/c you can see how the house is shaped etc.

So here's something I may have otherwise posted on FB...

New Angry Birds was released today, and both Angry Birds Seasons and original Angry Birds have been updated lately. Yes, I love this stupid game.

Also, I recommend Tiny Wings as another fun game that will absorb far more time than it should.

And... if I'm not already kicking your ass with alarming frequency in Words With Friends, hit me up... drewcorleone

Now I've got to go check out this Zillow thing.

Sounds pretty cool.

WatchESPN

You just need a valid provider and ESPN account...lets you watch the ESPN channels for free on your phone. Sitting here watching ESPN's coverage of The Masters at my desk.

Hbo go. Kicks ass

FeeddlerRSS. Kicks butt -you can directly get all types of RSS feeds from different sources.

trulia is a kickass real estate app.

I mentioned Zillow before. It is another great real estate app.

Freebies app. It will list all the paid apps that are currently being offered for free each day.

HBO Go app is killer. I started Entourage over this weekend and am now up to season 4.

Trulia app sucks compared to Zillow.

HBOGO does not currently work for Time Warner = what the hell?/that sucks (although apparently they are working on getting it). And when I tried to sign in under my correct zip code, Time Warner did not show up as a source for WatchESPN, either (I ended up putting in an Austin zip and it worked, but still). On a Time Warner positive, I called to add a channel a few weeks ago and they upgraded my package (mark that) to include a second DVR for only a slight price increase--now we can record 90210 and Secret Life of an American Teenager in 2 rooms (yay)! Might be worth a phone call for those looking to upgrade/get another box.....

Oh, and since KD mentioned it, if anyone has more suggestions from the Android app store, until I inevitably turn into a brick, I rooted my Nook, so I am looking for suggestions there, too.....

HBOgo. Doesn't work for me.

I always get a message that says "We are Sorry. Some videos may not be available yet. We are working on this issue and hope to have it resolved shortly "

I have DishTV. Maybe it has something to do with it. Doesn't matter which movie or tv show I try to play. I always get that message.


UPDATE:

I deleted the app and reinstalled it. Seems to work now. Yay!

FINALLY got ESPN Watch to work. I had been trying to set it up with my TWC account, which for "intensive" purposes no longer exists. When I changed it to Kristina's info it was stuck on the "congrats for registering" page. I ended up having to erase my cookies, create a new ESPN account, and start the process over.

This new Opera browser is slick, and I prefer it to Safari for a number of reasons, most notably it's faster.....but it also has this sweet "Start Page" function that puts your favorite nine sites on the home screen that you can then choose from.....it's good stuff.

I guess I missed the press release a couple of weeks ago, but HBO Go is coming for TWC customers sometime in January.

I'm multi-player FPS'ing against 12-year old's again.... this time it's MODERN COMBAT 3: FALLEN NATION

Sure, I get slaughtered straight up in a mano-a-mano gunfight. But here's the real gem. You can buy Fighter Attacks, Helo Support, and the Super effective "BOMBER" to blow the shit out of those little punks before they are able to shoot you. Works best If you load up with like $50 bucks worth of credits and hide crouched down in a remote corner of the map and just watch the kills pile up. Either the little bastards are too broke or too smart to put real money in this thing, but I don't care. You'd be surprised at how much shit you can destroy with a few dollars. I make the ground shake under their ass...major bloodshed. If I can get my ranking high enough I'll be able to buy a radar jammer...and they'll Never find me. KaPow Kapow BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

Classic.

Can you stream HBO GO through a PS3 or somesuch? Would love to make my way through The Wire but it isn't on Netflix streaming and I don't want to watch them on a phone or laptop.

HBO GO is live for TWC customers. A while back it was announced that it was coming to Xbox and PS3, but it's still not available on PS3 yet.

It is now... wasn't there the first time I looked.

Now I just need to remember my TWC credentials.
