Daigo and Justin Wong Re-create Evo Moment 37

For the first part of this article, I want to take you back to a gaming tournament called Evolution 2004. At the time, a gamer called Daigo was facing off against Justin Wong in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike. It was a top-8 match where the winner could only advance to the next round if they won two out of 3 games. However, it was during this first game that Daigo create what has now become known as Evo Moment 37. Take a look at this amazing footage of this moment in action. As you will see from the grainy footage, it was hands down one of the most amazing things to happen in the history of fighting game tournaments. More importantly, Daigo was able to pull off a solid execution to take that first game. However, he went on to take 2nd place. Fast forward to a...

Amazon Fire TV Stick vs. Fire TV: A Two TV Solution Under $200

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSEarlier this year Amazon announced the FireTV – a competitor to the Roku and Apple TV. Doubling the specs of both devices, this became my goto choice for over the top television. Now, Amazon has come out with their lower cost version in the Fire TV Stick – mostly to compete with Chromecast and Roku Stick. This $40 device plugs right into your HDMI port in the TV, with a combined power USB cable which – depending on the TV you own – can be powered right through the USB port for a cord-free TV. Before we accellerate on the subject: keep in mind you DO NOT need an Amazon Prime subscription to own or use Fire TV. It does enhance the experience with more content. You can easily just run Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and other apps on Fire TV but...

Motorola Moto-X 2nd Generation with Bamboo Back

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSMost of my phones that I’ve owned made mostly of plastic – From the Nokia 910 to the Razr, iPhone and even the Nexus 5 I currently own. If I ever wanted another texture, I would buy the case. But a phone with a wood back – Better yet, a Bamboo back? What a change in experience THAT is… I am taking a look at the 2nd Generation Moto X in Bamboo, which is now available on the Verizon network. This is one of three backing plates for the device. Also in leather and plastic, along with a soon-to-be released teak, walnut and ebony models, the Moto X not only doesn’t need a case, it IS its own case. The best part is how well it feels in your hand. In the last year I’ve held onto some small, medium and...

Taking the Amtrak Train: Walkthrough of the Roomette Sleeper Car

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSJennifer and I took a vacation to New York City. Instead of flying out, we did something a little more unorthodox in this day and age – took the train. From Chicago to New York City, we clacked around the Midwest and East coast with the Amtrak Cardinal line, coming home via the Amtrak Lakeshore. An amazing experience that not only let us see the sights but also appreciated the travel. Walkthrough of the Amtrak Roomette Sleeper Car There are three ways to travel via the train – in the coach seating, through a Roomette or the Viewliner bedroom. We stayed in the roomette through our travel, but I was also able to walkthrough the higher end viewliner. The roomette is a 3.5 foot by 6 foot room for two people the two seats turn into a single sleeper bed while...
