It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a Bitstrips. Today I was inspired. Me and my brother really enjoy going to breakfast every now and then. What was better – there was a restaurant that actually had Wi-Fi access. Therefore, we both would take our laptops and surf while eating. That was two weeks […]
Bitstrips (www.bitstrips.com) is a online comic building website. Bitstrips started in 2008 and since has created many interesting comics. Bitstrips has a vertical site in Bitstrips for Schools, which gets students involved in creating content. Make comics, share with the public, where they can laugh or groan at it. The Bitsrips community is pretty broad.
Geekazine Fact on Bitstrips:
Jeffrey Powers started using Bitstrips after seeing it by Chris Pirillo. His brother, ThomasSilly, is a top Bitstrips producer. Jeffrey also has created some great Bitstrips comics and even documented on YouTube including the creation of Duke Nukem on Bitstrips.
The next few weeks are going to be do or die for the Palm Pre. With it’s release of June 6th, we will see if this new phone from Palm is going to be able to stand up to the Apple iPhone. Especially when the new 3.0 version comes out by the end of the […]

This week I thought I would do something different for Bitstrips: A Caption Contest. It all started when I got the weirdest text message on my phone. I searched the Acronym database for what it could mean, but was stumped. Sometimes I think people are TOO lazy. Nonetheless it got me thinking – what would […]

This week it’s all about packing and moving. Got the living room all straightened out. The Kitchen was easy. The bathroom just needs to be cleaned. But what could be left? OH YEAH. The computer stuff. It becomes an interesting ritual of what I am going to keep and what is going to Goodwill. Computers […]
This week I take Bitstrips to a new level and give a proper send off for the game Duke Nukem. 3-D Realms closed it’s doors last week. Although I don’t think it will keep the next version of the Duke Nukem franchise down (After all, Take Two Entertainment still owns rights to it), it will […]
Commandment #1 – Thou shalt maketh thine iPhone App compatible doth 3.0 versions…. OK, it does make sense – If you make an iPhone app or if you want to keep the iPhone app in the store, you must update it for the new version of the software. For some, it may not need any […]
You only get 140 characters. How do you get your point across in that amount? Well, sometimes, you have to make some sacrifices. Great becomes Gr8. Punctuation sometimes is taken out. message names and hashtags are implemented. Proper grammer is – well, not proper twitter. This weeks Bitstrips takes us to Twitter U, where you […]
The other day I decided to play with the Beta version of CamStudio. The new beta version seems to be more stable and very useful. I like it a lot. What I decided to do was record this week’s Bitstrips – a how to model. I created a simple face on the site. However, I […]
It’s gotten really obvious that soon, unlimited Internet will be the thing of the past. As we get into faster speeds, it will be easier to download more and let friends connect up to download more. In the next 2 years the average persons’ internet usage will go up significantly. This cap hurts those who […]
I got a Segway… and you didn’t…. Well, not really. But wouldn’t it be cool to have one of the new GM Segways proposed? You could really be tooling down the street, lookin cool, having everyone look at you. This Segway seems a little more feesable than the stand up model. Only problem is if […]
I don’t watch too much too much TV anymore. I just have a few shows I want to keep up on. A lot of that is online anyway – I just have to wait a few hours and BAM! I am watching all my shows. My TV is still an older 27″. No VCR, DVD […]
It was a Double Whammy this week. Earlier, one of my favorite play websites – Bitstrips – celebrated a 1 year anniversary. At the same time, Thomas – author over at Dorkazine – celebrated a birthday. It was a lot more than a year and we won’t say how old he is, only that he […]
Getting back into the regular swing of things – this week we focus on the Rock Band. It apparently will not be as hard to get on the game system as it was to get into an iTunes library. Still, September 9th is the magic date. So get those drum sticks ready, polish up the […]
We all love getting the gifts. But when that one gift is just not what you wanted, you have to go to the store and get something to replace it. We all seem to want to go to the store the day after the holiday to do that.
Last Sunday I was at a dinner of local geeks. The big thing was Abrahams’ new Developer G1. Besides the iPhone and the G1, I was the only one with a Windows PC Smartphone. So I actually made that comment and it actually went down this way. Don’t worry. I am not buying a Blackberry […]
Still not 100%. Yeah, I should go to a doctor. A lot of Nyquil and Cough Drops for me. ITM, I’ve got to get back to work. Got to get back to…. ZZZZZ. Huh? oh. Here’s this weeks Bitstrips:
I think I could put together an album that Simon Cowell could question. Maybe someday I will put together an album of me singing all the holiday favorites. Then again, maybe not. So therefore I leave it up to Bitstrips to do that for me. This week we remember the old commercials we used to […]
Trying to get work done today so I can sleep in and eat Turkey tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a small Bitstrip I created to wish everyone a Happy Turkey Day. I know that some of you don’t celebrate, but nonetheless, you should take some time out and think about what you are thankful […]
This week I thought I’d start poking fun at the Mac – PC ads. Yeah, they’ve been overdone like next weeks Thanksgiving turkey over at your uncle Sams. Hopefully this one won’t be filled with tryptophan and put your to sleep.
