Harris Interactive recently released a poll that has set some websites abuzz with the statistic that Americans would have an easier time giving up sex than their mobile phones.
The poll lists twelve different items and asked people whether they could live without it for a few days, a week or more, or if they just couldn’t live without it. 26% of Americans said they could not live without a cell, while only 20% said they couldn’t live without sex. However, the world’s oldest pastime also lost out to television (23%), a computer (24%), and internet access (28%).

It’s Friday night and you find yourself facing the same problem you face every weekend—where shall you go for dinner and drinks? Everyone has suggestions, but no one make a decision. What you need is a third-party decision maker that guarantees an exciting night. Dyce can help you!
Dyce is a smartphone app that randomizes the process of selecting a restaurant or bar. It works like this: Dyce finds six of the best bars or restaurants close to your location, and with a random roll of the “Dyce” it decides where you and your friends should go. In order to make these choices, Dyce utilizes a dynamic selection algorithm that uses Foursquare ratings to find six of the best restaurants or bars in your area. It then filters these to select the range you want to search in (i.e. 1 mile, 5 miles), but it doesn’t stop there. Dyce also filters the results based on the type of restaurant or bar you and your friends are in the mood for (i.e. Dive Bars, Lounges, Cocktail Bars, Sports Bars etc.), and provides you with instant directions on how to get there using Google Maps and Apple Maps.

If you’ve ever been to Hershey Park, Universal Studios Parks, or any of the Disney World/Land, you’re probably familiar with the concept of the 4D Movie.
4D movies taking 3D a step further by enabling audience members to utilize all their senses. If there is a rainy scene, a spray of water will fall on you. If there are snakes on the ground, the floor beneath you will shift and slither. If someone is barbequing in the background, the smell of burgers will make your mouth water. Some theaters will even give a blast of cold air or a gust of wind to make even minor details feel more authentic.
Patatap is a “portable animation and sound kit” that functions somewhere between a browser game and a musical instrument. Click any key and Patatap will play a correlating sound and animation. Press many keys simultaneously or close together and the animations and sounds layer on each other – typing with it like it’s a word processor is tremendous fun. Just be careful about the space key! Every time you hit the space bar, it swaps out the ‘font,’ so to speak, and you get a new series of pips and squeaks to explore. There are at least five completely unique variations with their own visuals, and the sounds are as varied as a human voice, sci-fi blips, and a set that’s almost like having a jazz band at your fingertips.
