I’ve never played a Final Fantasy game before, and my experience with FF7R did not disappoint. Also, the soul of my anime-loving inner teen is back.

From the moment the camera panned in on Aerith’s face while the iconic notes to Final Fantasy VII’s theme chimed lightly in the background, I got chills.

I’ve never played a Final Fantasy game before. There’s no nostalgia here for me. I don’t have fond memories of staying up until 2  [Read More…]

Twitter’s mobile web app is a fantastic lightweight Twitter experience

This tiny little ‘app’ provides a complete Twitter experience without all of the bloat.

I gave up on using third-party Twitter apps a long time ago. I finally got fed up with the authorization token limit workarounds, missing features, sync problems and wonky notifications. But in a typical “the grass is always greener” situation, Twitter’s official app has its own problems. The notification system is often funky for me, not loading content in the background despite sending  [Read More…]

It’s still early days, but there’s a lot of potential to these fun little squares.

My 9-year-old came home from the first day of school this year and asked for a phone of his very own, and I laughed. His 13-year-old sister doesn’t even have her own phone yet, and I didn’t have one until I was much older that they are now. But as we talked, he explained many of the kids in his class had  [Read More…]
