Farmville

FarmVille is a game available on Facebook. Since its release in June, nearly 60 million people have downloaded the application – a similar figure to the number of Wiis sold to date across the world.

The aim of the game is simple, to plant crops, and harvest them. Many users on the game’s Facebook page claim to find the process both satisfying and addictive. The secret of its success is that you can accessorise your farm, expand its size and the fact that all your hard work goes into buying pretty animals, trees, decorations and crap to put on your virtual farm. You must persuade other friends to join the community, and pay actual money if you want to receive the most exciting farm upgrades. After a bit of researching, i found that there are people, maybe even you who are sados who set they´re alarm to 4 a.m to harvest they´re strawberries, are constantly on facebook playing this farm game and who believe it to be even more important than they´re actual lives.

So just incase you are one of these people… STOP PLANTING VIRTUAL VEGETABLES AND ADOPTING LOST PINK COWS AND DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIVES!         Thanks for reading.

Whatcha Say

This new pop-R&B song is by Jason Derulo, not a very well known artist at the moment, but has plenty of talent.

Ondo Phone

The new ondo phone is a music editing phone with a detachable microphone. Jam with friends in other houses or countries if they have one aswell, you with your guitar, them with they’re bass, drums, voice…. Its a great new gadget.

User
The target user for “Ondo” is the music enthusiast who seeks to interactively capture and edit sounds. Going beyond software-based solutions of other products, it is specifically designed to effectively collect pure sounds and is specially constructed to create a tactile sound editing experience.

Jamming
An innovative feature of “Ondo” is the three removable display ”sticks”. In their normal state, the “sticks” act as a unified touch display for the mobile device. When removed, each can be separately clipped onto a musical instrument or person to capture live sound. Like a portable recording studio, “Ondo” makes mixing tracks easy, because each “stick” picks up isolated sounds from each individual instrument. The recordings can be immediately sent via MMS (Multimedia Messaging) around the globe allowing musicians at different geographical locations to jam together.

Music Editing
Made from form-sensitive flexible materials, the “Ondo” allows the user to modify recorded sounds by physically twisting and bending the device. Like a guitarist pulling on a whammy bar, the user can feel and hear the musical effects as they create them.

Mixing
In party mode, “Ondo” works as a digital mixer enabling the user to create seamless transitions between songs. This is made easy with interactive touch functions combined with integrated software support.

Market opportunities
The advantage of such a device is that a range of services and accessories can accompany it in order to enhance the sound capture and editing experience. From a business perspective, most of the players in the mobile world can benefit: for example, content creators – by providing sound libraries or musical games for download; operators – by facilitating increased user interaction; and device manufacturers – by producing accessories such as input devices, Bluetooth instruments, etc. Jamming
