HalloweenIQTest

If you like playing games and enjoy Halloween candy then this game whose name is quite a mouthful might be a great one for you. It’s Halloween Horror Candy Saga Fever.  While its play style may seem familiar, this one has a sweet little twist, pardon the pun, as it features three different game modes. The first is Survival Mode where you need to be careful where you tap. The cake tiles are okay but watch out for the black ones. There’s also a Time Mode where you can test your speed to see how fast you can go in half a minute as well as a Distance Mode and as the name suggests sees how far you can make it with the cake tiles.

Did I just miss a call from myself?

CallerIdSpoofingIf I told you that I just missed the call from myself, you’d likely think either I had started Canada Day celebrations just a little bit early or I was totally losing it. But it’s true. My phone rang and my caller ID had my own number on it. However, it wasn’t me or my voicemail calling, it’s just another way that telemarketers and phone scam artists are trying to get you to pick up your phone.

I have to admit, it took me by surprise. I’ve become wise to the “unknown name unknown number”, “private caller” and the mysterious 1-800 or 1-888 numbers and even repeated calls that originated from my local area code. But when I got a call from my own number it caught me little off guard.

Wouldn’t you be curious enough to pick up the phone call coming from your own number?  READ MORE at CanoeTech Blog.

 

Mic Room by IK Multimedia turns one mic into twenty

microomWouldn’t it be nice to be able to use a myriad of studio microphones to get the right sound without even having to unplug the one you’re currently using? Well with Mic Room by IK Multimedia you now can. Mic Room is a simple and clever microphone-modeling app for your iOS device that transforms your microphone. It can turn your iRig Mic HD, iRig Mic Field or even your iPhone’s built-in mic or even Apple earbuds into a Shure SM58, an AKG C12 condenser or even a classic foam capsule old-time late night radio mic and more.

It’s a great concept. If we think of classic tracks or the music we want to create, being able to have just the right condenser, dynamic or ribbon mic can make things sound exactly the way they should.  We have virtual amps, why not mics, too? Read more…at CanoeTech Blog.
