Xbox One Skins: Protection & Style for Your Console

The Xbox One has been out on the market since 2013, which means Microsoft is due for an update. In preparation for the rollout of Scorpio and Xbox One S, the developer has slashed it prices to nearly half of its original asking price. But that doesn’t mean it’s now a cheap game console.

When the system is as valuable as it is, adult and teenaged gamers should take all of the necessary steps to protect their console, and there’s no better way than with an Xbox One skin.

Make Your Move Easy

There is no secret that any move is a pretty complicated process that can be either perfect or disastrous. One of the easiest ways to keep the track of it and avoid chaos is hire professional movers that will do all the dirty job for you. The article below offers you several useful tips about hiring a reliable moving company to make your moving experience a pleasant one.
Estimates and estimators

First and most important thing about the estimates and estimator say the following: show everything you have! You are planning to hire some movers and interested in their services. This is why representatives of a moving company will be open to you if you will be open to them. Show your estimator all items and belongings you want to be moved. According to the Okotoks movers statistics a lot of people forget about several items during the estimate and then get frustrated when movers tell that they have to pay extra money for that. If you want to avoid that – do not forget anything and make a list of things before your movers come!

The most frequent places to be forgotten about by the householders are attics, closets, basements, and backyards. Sometimes if you forget to list some items in the estimate it may appear that the movers take a truck where your “extra” item will simply not fit! In this case you will, once again, spend more money and undoubtedly have a time delay in the move.
Also, make sure that you tell the estimator about any special conditions at your new home that may complicate the move, like elevators, stairs, or a big distance from the curb to the closest door.

Check the estimate. The estimate is actually a combined document that, when signed by the movers provider representatives and you, serves as your full order for service and also as a bill of lading. According to the Okotoks movers this is the most important document that you get from any company which always needs to include the inventory list. They advise to pay attention to the top of the estimate where you need to see the words: “written binding estimate”, as well as the movers provider’s signature with a date at the bottom of the document.

If you are travelling from one city to another or even about her province the estimate has to clearly describe the quantity and type of goods that you are shipping, the distance to the final location, the time and date which your belongings will be picked up and delivered, and all information about additional services (like packing) and supplies that movers provide you with.
Another important issue that you need to talk about with a company is insurance. According to Alberta-movers.com – pro movers in Okotoks, you need to talk about it before signing any documents. The insurance is an essential part of any move because you need to make sure that in case of any unforeseen situations you are still on the safe side.

Top 5 Ways to Reduce Patient No-Shows in 2016

Patients cancelling appointments at the last moment, or giving you no notice at all, makes it very difficult for your office to run in a smooth manner. Not only is your scheduling coordinator tasked with finding another slot for those patients, but they must also see if they can fit someone else into the slot at the last moment. Sometimes they can get the job done, but schedulers cannot always find someone to take the timeslot in an appropriate time-frame. And having empty timeslots during the day means you are not being as productive as possible.

Underwater Dispatches: Sombrero Island in Wide Angle

After five months of not getting my much needed #VitaminSEA, I was able to tag along with two friends on a day trip to Sombrero Island. We did a total of three dives on Saturday and although I’ve had the RX100 for more than two years, this was the first time I actually went all-out with wide angle photography. The previous dives always had some technical malfunction with the strobes and I wasn’t sure whether it had more to do with wrong prepping or actual hardware failure — my left strobe always had issues. As it turns out, the strobe wasn’t set to shoot as slave.

2nd Floor Robinson’s Madison Mall
Don Jesus Blvd (Alabang Hills)

Madison is a new community mall that popped up right across the new Hillsborough Church after the Alabang Hills exit. It’s a boon for people from Alabang Hills, Hillsborough and BF Homes who want to experience new places to eat without having to cross Alabang-Zapote to get to Alabang Town Center. Strategically, Madison’s line of restaurant offerings are fresh — the Japanese restaurant ABURI is a must-try, and I heard that Relish will be opening soon as well.

3 reasons why your game app will never sell

Common mistakes of the novice app developer to avoid

If you are into gaming and technology, then the odds are that at one point or another you have contemplated making your own game app. They are popular, they are in demand, and what would be greater than having a game that actually provides you with revenue? You get the software, you develop your app, but the game does not do well. Why is this? Here are three common mistakes that the novice game app developer makes which keeps them from ever selling their game app.

1. Your game is like all the rest available
The number one thing that stops a game from being desirable is that it is too cliché. Regardless of whether or not the game is 2D or is based on 3D models, if it is too much like another game, people will simply go with the more popular option. Do you remember Flappy Birds? After its popularity there was an overabundance of games available which mimicked the game app. However, most of these games have fallen by the wayside.

Choose a game that has something unique and addictive to play. Yes, you can build upon something which has already been created so long as you do not infringe on copyright laws. As a matter of fact it is advised that you do so and add that unique twist. What you want to avoid is mirroring a game app. Most gaming platforms have a forum of some kind for their developers. Do not be afraid to use the forum to find out what gamers want. The phone gaming market is different from the traditional gamer market (such as PS4 and x-box). Where the traditional gamer wants the open world concepts and very high 3D interactivity, the phone market will want something engaging but not taxing on their data plan. Use the forums to find what people want, create a storyboard, and move forward.

2. You forgot to debug the program
An app has to work. Period. And although the program may function well, games which have long loading times may be perceived as faulty. This is the first area you need to check. Secondly, If you have a game application that only works on one platform but crashes on other programs, it will be a failure. Always test your game out on various platforms with various processing. Try if you can to test your program on 2G, 3G, and 4G phones both Android and iPhone to ensure that you maximize the amount of people who can use your app.
AKM model
In addition to you personally testing the game app, use an actual debugging program. There are several which are available. Of course, the more professional the software is, the finer tuned your program will be. Finally, do Alpha and Beta testing on your app so that real world users can notify you of any bugs. Once notified fix the problem quickly. Lags in development and fixes can quickly ruin your game app.

3. The content used for the development of the game has a high polygon count
If you think of your phone as a miniature computer (which in most cases it is) and you keep the processing and the storage in mind, it makes since that the game has to be optimized to the phone. Yet, in many cases the novice game developer will use the best looking 3D models but not the best suited models in their games. Unity and other game engines have reduced the probability of using objects which are too high poly for a phone.
As a game developer, choose low polygon models from the beginning. Most 3D CGI purchasing sites allow for you to specify that you want a game 3D model, character, tree, prop, or effect. The lower the poly count the quicker the game will perform. Remember, the more stuff that is in the game the slower the game will perform. The last thing that you want is for your game to be glitch, for the character to have unnatural movements, or for the phone to freeze up/lock up on the user.

The bottom line
The key to having your successful game is the same as any endeavor that you take on. Do it to the best of your ability. Plan what you want to produce, research to see if there are similar games on the market, think of a unique twist on the game which will make your game more desirable than that which is available, and develop it fully. If you are using a free game development software, take the time to understand how that program works and the requirements of the 3D models and assets so that your game is optimized for performance.

Spiffy’s Grove Cider Bar in El Grande, BF Homes

Aguirre Ave in BF Homes has garnered a reputation for being a food haven. Though not quite in Aquirre Avenue, El Grande, which runs perpendicular to BF Homes’ main road brings a similar charm of food real estate. For instance, Fat Butchick’s and Spin Cafe are some of the must-try places for any southern (or norther!) foodie. But this piece isn’t about these two. Today we’re here to talk about Spiffy’s Grove, BF Homes’ first cider bar.

Luis, I’m listening!

A short tribute to Luis Katigbak from his technology tech support

My relationship with Luis was one that was kept mostly at arms length. That is, an arm away from the computer screen. My time with Luis was professional at most, dappled with the brevity that would make me want to record all our conversations about the publishing industry, about writing, and about being a starving writer with a need to satiate gadget lust. I read his byline in the early 2000’s, as we were both contributing to a magazine known as The Reviewer which was then acquired by the Inquirer Group. We met again in 2006 – he, launching BURN Magazine with Kristine Fonacier and Zach Lucero, and me right across the room working on Mobile Philippines. By default as the guy who handled the magazine’s blog and reviewed gadgets for a living, I’d be (one of) his go-to tech support and technology consultant.

Tokyo: Observations

A trip to Tokyo isn’t complete without diving into the Otaku culture. In my previous post, I mentioned that I didn’t have a lot of time to move around Tokyo during the day as I was busy with work-related endeavors, so it was only during the weekend where I really felt compelled to take the train two stops from Shimbashi Station down over to Akihabara. And all I have to say is that … OMG. JAPAN. SUCH CULTURE!
