Best Chai in Minneapolis area.
Aug 01

The best Chai tea in the Twin Cities and maybe even the whole state.

By Osman | tech

Are you wondering what the best Chai in Minneapolis twin cities area is? You really have to try the Chai tea latte at TK’s Coffee. It is absolutely the best Chai that I have ever tasted. I don’t know what ingredients he puts in that Chai Tea latte but it sure beats Starbucks and all other Cafe’s I went to. TK’s Coffee is located in Lillydale when you exit on Highway 13 and head east for a few blocks. The only other Chai that come’s close to TK’s Chai is Moonlight Cafe’s Chai. When I blog about tech topics, I like to have a nice cup of Chai latte. The worst Chai in the twin cities is the Nicollet Cafe’s Chai. Their chai will make your throat burn and is better for days when you have a cold or feel sick.

LG G3 Pros and Cons

LG G3 Pros and Cons

By Osman | tech

I just got the LG today and I want to report on the pros and cons that I have noticed so far. LG G3 Pros and Cons

Pros

Screen is very high-def and phablet like size. I like the fact that it is very wide. Fake Metallic back and overall feel of the phone is very premium and not plastic like. The new LG G3 flagship sports 5.5-inch, 1440 x 2560 (QHD) pixel resolution screen, and a whopping 538 pixels per inch. Battery life is great. I have been using hotspot for hours now and battery isn’t draining fast. First time charge I gave it a full charge 100% charge and from there on I will keep charge between 20% and 80% max which they say extends battery life.

Battery is user replaceable. The HTC One and iPhone don’t have user replaceable batteries and when a person looks at the LG G3, it looks like it has a uni-body design with a battery that isn’t replaceable, but that is not the case..

The LG’s of the past were horrible but LG has really improved this time. The android interface on the LG G3 is faster than the Touchwhiz of Galaxy S4 and S5 in my opinion. It is lightweight, smooth and fast despite having bloat.

Cons

I dislike the fact that the volume and power buttons are on the back of the phone. LG phone designers thought that would be a convenient idea for those to be back there but the truth is that the phones huge size and wideness makes it uncomfortable to use those, and worst of all is the fact that I have a difficult time hitting the power button to try and turn on the screen. I keep accidentally hitting the volume buttons every time I try to hit the power button. What would of been a great idea is to put the power button on the right side and volume buttons on the left side like some traditional phones have. This allows for a person to operate volume and power buttons comfortably while looking at the screen and not blindly control them if they are on the back.

When I am using the hotspot and screen is shut off the phone gets hot. My Galaxy S4 and S5 never got hot when I was using the hotspot. I am not doing anything data intensive so this phone should not be getting hot with light hotspot usage. Autocorrect spell check sucks for people who type in a different language. It autocorrected me way more often than the Samsung phones did. I wish they can fix autocorrect so it doesn’t autocorrect non-english languages. Despite all the cons though the LG G3 is still a great phone and has many more pros. I just got the phone so I will update this article as I see more Pros or Cons.

Galaxy At War Review

By Alex Elliot | tech

 

Hello every Jammy here and today I will be Reviewing Galaxy At War. This Game is available for download from the Apple Store, Google Play Store and the Android Market for Free. The game is based around a space version of Tribal Wars (will be doing a review on this game shortly) but is lot better.

During the game, you get to build spaceships and pretend that you’re in Star Wars (might I add that, Star Wars is a cracking set of films) You get to become part of an alliance and become leader of leader of the entire galaxy. *mwahahahahahahaahahahahahaahahahah…cough..cough* Sorry about that..Where was I..oh yeah. You can become leader of galaxy *Evil Grin*. You can only join one alliance at a time so it is recommended that you make a lot a friends.

The game can be very buggy as sometimes you can bug out and it will seem like you lose you planets but to correct this just log out and re-log in.

Minecraft PS3 Edition Review

By Alex Elliot | tech

Minecraft PS3

Hello everybody, Jammy here and today I am going to be telling you about MINECRAFT more specifically the PS3 version. Now I love minecraft, it’s the game I always play on the PC (the only game i can play on it) so I thought I would give the ps3 one a shot and I have to say I am very disappointed in it. You are limited to a certain amount of area. The controls can be very temperamental and when you play with youy mates, your screen gets smaller.

Still it is better then XBOX. I know its only been out for a few weeks but it needs a lot of work before it can meet the standards of the PC.

The Sims 3 Pets Review

By Alex Elliot | tech

Hi All, Jammy here. Today i thought i would give you an insight to The Sims 3 Pets. Now i know what you’re thinking “oh why Sims pets. it’s been out like forever” but hear me out Sims 3 Pets is an alright game. You get to live out your life as you see fit, You get to have a family and most of all, you can get your pets to destroy furniture. There’s even an achievement for being the crazy cat lady!

The game does have its down points. The PS3 version has been known to lose its saves and the XBOX version has also done the same. In the PC version, when your sim has grown, the child can still look its previous form, which is freaky as hell.

Even with theses down, i still think that this game is worth buying. even if it is like 4 years old but they always say that older is better

Nidhogg 2014 Review

By Osman | tech

nidhogg review 2014

Nidhogg is a fantasic fightning game. Developed by an indie studio, Nidhogg is completely different from any 1 vs. 1 fightning games. To kick things off, there is no special moves, no characters, nothing. Each player controls a generic swordsman. Armed with only a sword and without any kind of armor, the player has to create a strategy to use their limits to defeat the opponent, or find holes in the opponent’s strategy. The player can put the sword in three different positions, which can be used for both offense and defense. The sword can also be throwed, but it can be easily blocked. Both fighters also have one special move, a divekick. Triggered by jumping and pressing the attack button, this attack will make the opponent lose their sword. What I most like about Nidhogg it is because it is about the strategy not how much hitboxes the character’s attacks has, it is about how good at it. Nidhogg’s objective is to defeat the opponent and go to three screens and be eaten by the titular monster Nidhogg. Yup. You heard me right. To win the game, you must die. Everytime you kill an oppennt, it will respawn sometime later. But there is some drawbacks to it, Nidhogg’s online multiplayer, which is one of the selling points of the game, is bad. The matchmaking is really bad. I rarely managed to get into a match, and that was pure luck. There is also the lack of variety of stages. There is only four of them. Four. However, they feel unique and their uniqueness can be used for different strategies, but good lord is that a low number of stages for a fightning game. And also that soundtrack. Dat soundtrack. Nidhogg is what indie games should be. Not copying other games to try making something new (ala Braid, aka “Super Mario Bros. with Prince of Persia’s time travel and some story bullshit”), it is supposed to try something new at it. Nidhogg is unique, for it’s simple and addicting gameplay, but the lack of things to do and not working multiplayer are some problems. Overall, if you want something new yet good to play, here’s Nidhogg. THE GOOD ​ Unique concept. Good to play. Fun with friends. Simple gameplay. THE BAD Lack of things to do alone. THE UGLY ​Really bad multiplayer matchmaking system. ​RELEASE DATE: January 13, 2014. DEVELOPER: Messhof. PUBLISHER: Messhof. GENRE: 1v1 Fightning Game. PLATFORM(s): PC. VERSION REVIEWED: PC. PRICE: $14.99
