Downloadable Demos’ Virtues

As the costs of entertainment rise, my wife and I need to find ways to spend less to keep ourselves entertained. We at least want to make sure that we like what we buy. My wife, son, and I all love to play video games, but they can get expensive. Since we bought our Xbox 360, we have used the downloadable demos to try many new video games without having to spend too much money.

Xbox 360 downloads

We can use our Xbox 360 to download demo versions of some of the most popular games. The Xbox’s Wi-Fi connection lets us connect to Internet and download any game available in the market place. We can browse all available titles or search for one in particular. Downloading onto our console takes a while, sometimes close to an hour, but it beats driving through heavy traffic to get to the store. PlayStation 3 and other game systems also offer downloadable demos.

Purposes of demos

We use the demos for two main reasons. First, the demos let us preview the games. As parents, we can preview a game for content and appropriateness before letting our pre-teen son see it. We can also decide if we like a game enough to spend the money for the full version. For example, my son downloaded the Minecraft demo. He liked it so much that he bought the full version with a points card. He spent $20 for the card that contained 2,600 points. The full Minecraft game cost 1,600 points. He used the extra 1,000 points for additions and upgrades to the game. He did the same with Burnout Revenge. In another instance, I really disliked a racing game, so I easily deleted the demo and spent nothing.

Free, points, or low cost

Most of the demos are free, which we obviously like the best. Some cost points that we can buy in advance through Wi-Fi or on a points card from a store. Other demos may cost a small amount of money. Either way, we get to preview the games through the demos. Full versions are also available for download at full prices, but even if we do not buy the full version, we can still keep and play the demo for as long as we want.

Favorite downloads so far

I have tried many of the newest sports games by downloading the demos. I can use the demos to decide which games are worth the purchase, especially with the annual sports games. I then feel better about spending money on the full versions of the games I like the most. So far, I have liked Madden NFL 13 and NHL 12 the best. I have not yet bought the full versions, but I like the demos enough to satisfy my sports game fix until I do. When buying blind, I may not like a game, but I am then stuck with it and out the purchase price.

We appreciate the downloadable demos that Xbox offers. They let us preview games before we spend too much money and make sure that our son does not play anything we do not want him to play. We will continue to use this feature.

Xbox 360 has been used since ages for providing unlimited entertainment for nearly two generations with different games like the pokemon series for example where you need to have a Pokemon go accounts in your name to spring into action and also quite compatible as a device quite in line with PS4.

Inexpensive Gift Ideas For The Men In Your Life

Any woman who has ever shopped for men understands the frustration many of us feel when trying to come up with a gift that they will like and it isn’t a repeat from last year. These are a few of my favorite gift ideas; some have been favorites of my dad’s and some have been favorites of my husband.

FOR THE SPORTS ENTHSIASTS IN YOUR LIFE

Tickets to a college sports event are more affordable than pro tickets and the games are fun to watch. Many of the sports enthusiasts already have a favorite college team anyway-

  • Sports Magazine Subscription
  • Team Hats

Sports Books

A Sports Movie Basket-Choose a movie based on a sports theme-there are a lot of them to choose from, then pack a basket with lots of movie theatre type goodies. Packages of microwave popcorn, their favorite large boxes of candy. Anything they like to order at the theater is a good choice.

FOR THE HANDYMEN IN YOUR LIFE

There are some tools that you can almost give to everyone on your list-these include things like tape measures (they have a way of disappearing), laser levels, flashlights, and lights that can run off your car battery in the event that there are car problems.

FOR THE MEN WHO LOVE YOUR COOKING

You know who they are-whether it is your dad, your husband, son or nephew-there is someone out there who would love to be the recipient of a monthly gift of their favorite baked item. This can be a batch of their favorite cookies, a blueberry pie, or your specialty cheesecake. If it is their favorite, they will be very pleased and will be waiting for the day to arrive.

FOR THE GUY WHO NEEDS TO RELAX

The gift of massage is a wonderful gift; you can purchase gift certificates from most massage therapists in either half hour or hour long increments.

FREE GIFTS

Sometimes the budget is really tight or the best gift is really some of your time! In this case, a homemade coupon book is best. Coupons can include a half hour massage, cooking their favorite meal, an evening where the remote is all theirs (no complaints), a guilt-free night out with the guys, an evening of your time-you get the idea and can use your imagination to come up with some coupons of your own!

FOR THE MEN IN YOUR LIFE WHO REALLY DON’T WANT GIFTS

Donations to a charity in their name are a good idea. This can even be done creatively-choose a charity or group that you know they would support to make a donation.

FOR DADS (FROM THEIR KIDS)

Favorite suggestions for gifts from the kids are always home-made.

Hand painted picture frames, personalized for Dad with the kid’ names on is a great idea.

Baseball hats decorated with a phrase like, “World’s Greatest Dad” decorated with fabric paints by the kids.

A hand painted coffee mug

Photo items (there are lots of great choices on Wal-Mart’s photo center at walmart.com, including

  • Photo Calendars
  • Mousepads
  • Mugs
  • Memory Books

Mens leather travel wallet The good thing about this gift idea is that you can choose from wide variety of modern designed items. Most of the best wallets now do come very stylish and fashionable. So it is also an ideal gift.

We all say that men are so hard to shop for unless you have a lot of money to spend. That’s not always true!

Book Recommendations for Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien and Lord of the Rings

J.R.R. Tolkien set out to write a mythology for his beloved England, noting that the English borrowed from Scandinavian legends but didn’t have much that was unique to their own culture. That mythology manifested itself as the Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you’ve read The Hobbit plus the three volumes of LotR and are dying to know more, what do you read next? Tolkien left a hefty body of work behind when he died, having written bits and pieces and longer narratives throughout most of his life. Much of it has been gathered and editied by his son Christopher, but where do you start? Here are nine suggestions.

  1. J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography by Humphrey Carpenter

This authorized biography is probably the best one out there, written a few years after Tolkien’s death. Carpenter interviewed friends and family and had access to letters and papers, so this book, though compact, is chock-full of fascinating information. Even if you don’t delve into any other books on this list, do read this one. Either the book reading id done with interest or recommendations, the answer will be provided to the person of how old is Aragorn? The age will be specified in the drama for the audience. 

2.The Complete Guide to Middle-earth: Tolkien’s World from A to Z by Robert Foster

This book is mostly for fun, not something you’ll read cover to cover by any means, but one which you’ll dip into when a word catches your eye or when you’re reading something else by Tolkien and you come across a word or name and can’t remember any specifics. The author explains in the introduction which textual sources he used in compiling this mini encyclopedia. The book includes a timeline and genealogies. This might make a good gift for a die-hard fan who has everything else.

  1. The Silmarillion by Tolkien, edited by Christopher Tolkien

From the creation of Eä to “Lay of Beren and Lúthien,” immerse yourself in the world Tolkien created. Many of these stories are unfinished but as some are referenced in the LotR trilogy, you might want to read the originals, so to speak. Tolkien worked on these stories throughout his life, though he never published them. His son Christopher edited them after his father’s death. Additional material includes genealogies, an annotated index of names, and grammar and pronunciation guides.

  1. Unfinished Tales: The Lost Lore of Middle-earth by Tolkien

Unlike The Silmarillion, which was edited from notes left by Tolkien when he died, the pieces in Unfinished Tales are untouched. Many of them, such as the section on Galadriel and Celeborn, are actually quite short and incomplete. Son Christopher has written commentary, which interrupt the flow of the narratives (but which are set off in different type so you can skip them if you wish) but which also give you an insight into the mind of J.R.R. as he wrote and rewrote his stories.

  1. The Children of Hurin by Tolkien

Christopher edited this full-length novel, which was published in 2007. The basis for the story appears a couple of times in different forms in The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales. It’s a tragic narrative, following the exploits of Turin Turambar, who seemed to be cursed or at least very unlucky.

  1. The History of Middle-earth, edited by Christopher Tolkien

After having published The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales, Christopher turned to the rest of his father’s notes, poems, rough sketches, and musings with the intent of organizing it all. Twelve volumes later he had achieved his goal. The books follow a general chronology, and like the previous posthumous publications, contain sections of various lengths and in different stages of completion. Books six through nine encompass the period of the LotR trilogy, so those might be a starting place for readers looking to immerse themselves even deeper into Middle-earth. Only obsessed fans will make it through all twelve volumes.

  1. Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth by John Garth

Tolkien had been a soldier during World War I. He fought in the Battle of the Somme and witnessed first-hand the horrors of war. What he saw and experienced influenced the rest of his life, and he indirectly included that terrible period in his LotR trilogy. Humphrey Carpenter of course talks about Tolkien’s war experience in his biography, but Garth explains even further how war shaped the mythology Tolkien had been creating.

  1. The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Humphrey Carpenter with assistance from Christopher Tolkien

Tolkien wrote a great many letters in his lifetime, as did most of his contemporaries. Selected ones appear here, though “selected” means “a whole darn bunch.” Topics range from family to teaching to answering fan mail, and of course a large portion relate to the writing of the LotR trilogy. Carpenter has included introductions to the letters, but it might also help to read the biography he wrote in order to better understand some of the correspondents.

  1. Fans of the movies should check out the visual companions (one for each movie) by Jude Fisher and the making of the trilogy by Brian Sibley.

Sibley was on set throughout the filming of Peter Jackson’s masterpiece and served as the official chronicler of what went on behind the scenes. The pictures are gorgeous, and it’s easy to just flip the pages looking only at the illustrations. Fisher is lighter on text but has just as many amazing photos. She sticks to the movie plot while Sibley lets the cast and crew speak.

Cheap Ways to Replace Your Kitchen Cabinets

Replacing cabinets during a kitchen renovation can be a lengthy and expensive process. Cabinets are one of the most expensive components of a kitchen to replace, as many are custom built and must be measured and installed by professionals. 

Consider searching for cabinets that can be easily installed by the homeowners. These r82 kits are often available at the local home store and could save the homeowner hundreds of dollars in installation costs for the new cabinets.

Sometimes all the cabinets need are a fresh coat of paint and new hardware. New hardware and paint can make a large difference in the look of the cabinets as well as create a dramatic new theme for the kitchen. New hardware for the doors can come as little as three dollars per door pull, and new paint can be purchased for as little as twenty dollars per gallon. This is the perfect makeover for your kitchen, on the cheap!

Instead of replacing the entire cabinet system, many homeowners find it beneficial to give the cabinets a literal face-lift by replacing the faces, or the front of the cabinets. This can be done by replacing the cabinet faces altogether or by creating a new look with paint, texturing, or stripping of color from the cabinets.

As an alternative to the traditional cupboard doors, design trends are showing that open-faced, or glass doors above the sink and in other cupboards are growing in popularity. These glass cabinet doors are a great way to replace the kitchen cabinets for cheap. The glass can be obtained from a glass shop for a fraction of the price, and installed into the cabinets for a custom feel.

There are modern ways to save money while replacing your kitchen cabinets and this is to remove the door completely and finish the frames while leaving the cabinets open. Not only does this give the kitchen modern appeal but it also gives everyone in the household a reason to keep the cupboards tidy.

If the alternative methods are not appealing and you wish to replace the cabinets than homeowners can save thousands of dollars by shopping at design outlet stores, or overstock stores, as well as shopping at stores that specialize in these ideas and have scratch and dent products that can be installed but have minor flaws that do not affect the look of the product.

Many modern homes are opting for curtains on curtain wires rather than the traditional cabinet doors. This is perfect for the bottom cabinets in the kitchen, and if designed properly creates warmth within the space. These should be avoided by the cooking area, or if they are used, ensure that they are easily removed in case they become soiled.

There are many things that you can do to change the look of your cabinets. Consider purchasing a program, or download a program for your personal computer that lets the homeowner simulate these changes, such as color and placement before actually making the purchase, this way, it can be foretold which ideas will work, and which ideas will not.

Unhealthy Coffee Drinks You Won’t Want to Drink

Do you love to drink coffee? Do you enjoy drinking regular coffee or specialty coffee? Do you enjoy going to Starbucks or a fast food restaurant for a good cup of coffee? If you do then you need to know which coffee drinks to stay away from. Some of your favorite coffee drinks might not be good for you and would be considered unhealthy.

Anyone that drinks coffee has had a bad cup now and then. Taste is not the only thing that makes a bad cup of coffee, what is put in the coffee can make it unhealthy. Here are 3 unhealthy coffee drinks that you might want to consider staying away from.

McDonald’s Caramel Latte with Whole Milk – this is a specialty coffee drink that McDonald’s offers. This coffee drink could be considered a rich dessert with all the calories and sugar it has in it. For a large size coffee drink there is 330 calories. There is 9 grams of fat. You will be getting 210 mg of sodium and 51 grams of sugar. Because of the amount of sugar and all the calories this Caramel Latte with Whole Milk has it would be considered an unhealthy choice. The making of the unhealthy drinks restricted through the coffee bean wholesale suppliers. The drinking of the coffee should not cause any bad effect on the skin and health of the person to remain fit. 

Starbucks White Hot Chocolate with Whole Milk and Whipped Cream – this is a specialty coffee which is just one in a number of different coffee drinks that Starbucks offers. This is just one of the unhealthy coffee drinks. This coffee drink is very high in calories, fat, sodium and sugar. There is 640 calories in this drink. There is 28 grams of fat. You will get 330 mg of sodium and 60 grams of sugar. There is a way to make this White Hot Chocolate Coffee drink healthier. You can replace the whole milk with 2% milk and leave off half of the whipped cream. This can still be a great tasting coffee drink without all the extra calories, fat, sodium and sugar.

Starbucks Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino with Whole Milk and Whipped Cream – is another unhealthy coffee drink from Starbucks. Starbucks makes really good coffee and coffee drinks but what is added is what makes people gain weight and start to become unhealthy. There is 520 calories in this coffee drink. There is 23 grams of fat, 350 mg of sodium and 68 grams of sugar. The fat, sodium and sugar is really high in this coffee drink. You can make the Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino have less calories by making it an Iced Mocha drink. This drink will taste just as good and will save you almost 400 calories.

A good thing to remember when buying a coffee drink is that the more items added to the drink will make it more unhealthy.

Taking Complete Care Of Your Pets

As a pet parent, it is really important that you do whatever you can in order to keep your four legged buddies safe and healthy. You might know that  Invisible fencing can do more harm than good but besides that, there are tons of things that you need to keep in your mind in order to keep your furry friend healthy.

In this article, we are going to take a look at the important things that you need to keep in mind so that you can keep your pets healthy all the time.

  • The most important thing that you should keep in mind is that you schedule regular visits to your vets. Provided that your pets have a much shorter life span, it is really important that you monitor their health conditions carefully.
    These trips can be challenging at first but your pet will start recognizing your vet after a certain time and thereafter your pet will go along comfortably.

  • Vaccination is also vital for your pets as that will help you in making your pet healthier and more immune to different health issues. Considering all this, make sure that you schedule your pet’s immunization appointment as soon as possible.
    If you have a puppy or kitten make sure that you schedule their vaccination appointment as soon as possible. This is also applicable if you have a senior dog as vaccinations are really important for your pets.
  • Proper identification is also important as you need to make sure that your pet is always safe. This is really important as your young pets tend to dash out of the house at the early stage and collar tags are not that efficient in all the cases.
    This is where you can take a little help from technology and get an ID tag for your pet. With that, you will be able to track your pet easily as these ID tags are implanted in your pet’s skin making it quite impossible for them to lose it.
  • Sterilization is another important thing that you should pay attention to as unwanted pregnancies can lead to severe health problems that can affect your pet’s health significantly. Sterilization can greatly reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic health issues.
  • A healthy diet plan is vital in keeping your pet healthy. As a pet owner make sure that you provide your pet with proper food and fresh drinking water all the time.
    With a wide range of food products that are available in the market, it can be quite daunting for a pet owner to choose the best product for their pet. This is why you should do online research about the best diet plan and food options that you can choose from for your pet.
  • As their caretaker, it is also important that you pay proper attention to your pet’s grooming. You need to pay attention to their time to time grooming and hygiene. You should be brushing their teeth from time to time and besides that, you should also comb their coats and add all these essentials to your calendar.

  • Changing the living space of your pet at regular intervals of time is also a great idea. That will keep your pet curious all the time as they are going to explore their new living space. Moreover, it also helps you in keeping the living area of your pet clean and free from germs and harmful bacterias.
  • Training of your pet and making them friendly will also help you in keeping your pet mentally healthy and active as they go out and socialize with other animals. You should try to start with the training of your pet as soon as possible so that they can learn new tricks.
    For that, you can take help from your local animal shelter that will provide you with credible recommendations when it comes to pet trainers.
  • As you play with your pet it is really important that you create a safe environment so that you and your pet can bond over playtime. For this, you can also take help from DIY projects that are there online and create inexpensive toys for your pets.

Besides all these factors summers are also closing in and heat stroke is another major issue that dog owners face. This is why it is really important that you notice symptoms of heatstroke in your pet and take proper action in time.

Here are some of the common symptoms that you should be paying attention to:

  • Your dog is drooling or salivating abnormally.
  • You see your dog moving in a restless manner and the color of his tongue is also bright red.
  • If you see any sign of mental confusion, dizziness, lethargy, or any weakness in your dog you should take immediate action.
  • Lastly, there are several other symptoms of heatstroke that you can learn about, for that you can get in touch with your vet.

Now that you are aware of the symptoms, here are some of the effective ways through which you can handle your pet during a heat stroke.

  • You should immediately move your dog indoors or a cooler so that your dog can relax and maintain their internal temperature.
  • You should also check the temperature of your pet with the help of a rectal thermometer and if the temperature of your pet is higher than 106 degrees you should immediately get in touch with your vet.
  • If there is a pool or waterbody nearby you can also take your pet for a dip so that they can regulate their body temperature.
  • If your dog is conscious you can give him cool water as well, which will help him to control his body temperature. However, you should avoid giving your pet ice cubes as that can lead to a quick drop in body temperature that is not good for the mental health of your pet.
  • Lastly, you should take your dog to your pet as soon as possible for a quick and effective treatment of your pet.

These are the most important things that you should know about when it comes to taking care of your pet.

Alternative Uses For Facebook And Other Social Networking Sites

Facebook, MySpace and other social networking sites have skyrocketed in the past couple years as an easy, popular way for college students and others to socialize via the Internet. With online profiles, photo albums and messaging, you can stay connected with old friends from high school and get to know new friends at your college or place of employment. While Facebook was originally intended exclusively for college students, now anyone with an e-mail address can join. There are many alternative uses for Facebook and other social networking sites on the Internet, from a political campaign tool to extra classroom interaction and publicity for a new musician. Here are the details for using popular social networking sites to your advantage, even if you’re not a college student.

Alternative Use for Social Networking Sites #1: Appeal to the younger voter using Facebook. When November elections came and went with a Democratic takeover of Congress, a lot of that result came from an increase in voting among younger citizens. Consistently, the 18-24 age bracket is among the groups with the lowest voting records. However, in November several politicians used Facebook to their advantage and opened a profile to appeal to the younger demographic. Since students spend the majority of their time using the Internet and browsing Facebook and the other social networking sites they use, creating an online profile to inform potential supporters of your campaign platform and plans for office is a great way to get the word out to college students using a medium they understand and take interest in. It will also help you appear more down-to-earth and easily relatable to the average college student. If you’re launching a political campaign, don’t forget to utilize Facebook and other social networking sites as great publicity tools.

In addition, social networking sites can also be used as an advertisement platform for your business. Millions of people are using Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. This could be  agreat opportunity for you to advertise your business and grow your audience. You can also get instagram followers from Buzzvoice.

Alternative Use for Social Networking Sites #2: Create a profile as free publicity for your up-and-coming band or solo career. Using Facebook, you can create events to publicize your upcoming gigs and let potential fans know the kind of musician you are. You can publish photos of yourself performing at various concerts. If you’ve got a demo, upload it to MySpace so that your friends will automatically hear it every time they visit your page. As an emerging performer, you need all the publicity you can get, so use Facebook and other social networking sites to get the buzz going and draw listeners to your gigs. Plus, it’s free–and we’ve all heard the stories about “starving artists.” Save the money you’d spend on publicity for more recording time.

Alternative Use for Social Networking Sites #3: As a professor, use Facebook and MySpace to connect with your students, create an online gradebook and continue classroom discussion to supplement learning. Maybe you’ve been looking for a way to help sick students catch up on missed lectures and in-class assignments. Use Facebook to do that. Create a group for your class to generate ongoing discussion on that lecture that you had to cut short at the end of 50 minutes. Make it a required part of the class. Since students spend so much time on the Internet anyway, they’ll welcome this new way to fulfill class requirements by doing something they like. And similar to the politicians who become more human with a Facebook profile, professors can use social networking sites to get to know their students better and make learning exciting and fulfilling in a new way.

With all of the warnings and media coverage devoted to safety issues surrounding Facebook, MySpace and other social networking sites, it’s easy to lose sight of the potential these websites hold. These social networking sites aren’t just for college students. By employing these alternative uses, politicians, musicians and professors can create a new way to interact with their core audience and take control of the power that the college student demographic holds.

The Next Generation Technology Boom

The Overview

The technological market is constantly growing. The ability to provide to an international market of consumers with access to a product has pushed the original market out and expanded it. The most interesting development from the general populaces increasing access to technology is the utilization of technology for entertainment purposes. This has created a whole new individual market with an ever growing profit margin. The upcoming developments bring promise of a technological boom which will bring with it exciting new technologies and software for purchase.

Hardware Development

The coming years will offer much promise in terms of the development of more fine-tuned and powerful technologies in the home environment. Technology as a form of entertainment is growing at an exponential rate in era. The leading companies in consumer electronics are buzzing behind the scenes. The next generation of gaming platforms is on its way, and the supergiants, Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are preparing to take the next step in the console wars, releasing their respective consoles; the PlayStation 4, the XBOX 720(also known as the XBOX 8 due to its integration of the upcoming Windows 8 operating system) , and the Wii U. This will pump billions of dollars of profit into the gaming industry, resulting in yet another boom in the gaming industry. Another giant reaching a possibility of booming in consumer electronics is the well renowned Apple. Rumors of communication between Apple and NVIDIA, who is another large company which produces high end graphics processing units, are spreading. The outcomes from the possible alliance can put Apple at the forefront of the more ‘hardcore’ portion of the gaming industry. The clean running of the Mac OS means that the PC gaming industry could see a powerful competitor from Apple. Alternatively, Apple may be working behind the scenes on developing their own entry in the console wars (perhaps a Mac Triangle 180), a farfetched possibility, but is food for thought all the same. The constant competition between these giants has improved accessibility, user friendliness, and power of home and office technologies, and will continue to do so.

Software Developments

Along with the upcoming hardware giants, software is also going to hit a peak in the market in the near future. The software giants such as Ubisoft and Crytek(in these cases game engine developers) are preparing for the next generation of processing power, Ubisoft’s response being the development of the Unreal Engine 4 and the CryEngine 3, two massively powerful engines are due for release, fuelling the companies which use the engines to develop more powerful and beautiful games. Microsoft’s promise of Windows 8 is also a source of new possibilities, and Apple’s release of the Mac OS X platform known as Mountain Lion drives the development of increasingly powerful operating systems. As with the development of more refined hardware, the development of new software platforms will fuel the market of computers and technology, and competition between companies will produce increasingly powerful technology and software to the general populace. Amazon is also opening up it’s Kindle platform to the game development community through its GameCircle branch, opening up a new platform for consumers to access, and developers to produce on.

This will most likely allow for development on a Java platform, much like the Android , given the Kindle being written in Java.
