The Social Media Detox

Biohazard-Symbol

I’ve been clean for almost 2 weeks now. Feels good finally getting back to normal. I have my whole life ahead of me, and I truly believe that I can do and accomplish anything!

Bitches, I’m done with Social media. After years of being addicted to Tweets, Retweets, Likes, Shares, and all the fuckery that accompanies being a Social Media junkie. There’s nothing Social about being on Social Media. It’s the exact opposite: The Anti-Social Media. People spewing shit all the time, hating on each other, bitching and moaning about shit that’s irrelevant to their existence, and feeling good about themselves while do so. It’s the perfect fuck-salad of hate, anger, disgust, depression, and flat-out bitch-fuckery!

Windows 10 Might Be The Greatest Operating System (OS) of All Time!

Windows 10 Screenshot

I’m a born and bred Microsoft guy: a hardcore loyalist and an occasional apologist. But despite my blind loyalty, even I couldn’t defend Microsoft’s retarded-ass decision to do a complete revamp of the OS and shove Windows 8 down everyone’s throat. In my opinion, Windows 8 was an OS designed specifically for people with the cognitive abilities of a demented circus and the depth perception of an earthworm. It was one of the worst fucking Operating System’s I’d ever used. Just aaahhhhhh!!!! Thankfully though, Microsoft atoned itself and washed away its sins with the Windows 10 OS, which is my opinion is the greatest operating system I’ve ever used. Just simply fucking fantabulous.

BREAKING: J.J. Abrams Found Guilty of Brutally and Mercilessly Murdering ‘The Force’

Star Wars The Force Awakens Poster

May the farce be with you!

After months and months of hype and shameless promotions, Star Wars finally hit the theaters yesterday and it was an unmitigated disaster. A disaster unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed in my life. What the fucking fuck, JJ – you self-righteous scum.

Abrams is one of the greatest con-artists in human history. Lost, then Star Trek, now Star Wars – this guy doesn’t give a flying fuck about the audience, or the fandom associated with some of these historic franchises; the only person he gives a fuck about is JJ Abrams.

Big Changes In 2016

New Beginnings

After almost a year of mediocrity and not paying much attention to THE App Store Download blog, I have decided to complete do a 180 and focus more on the blog and content side of things, as opposed to just developing Smartphone Apps. Which is why, as we inch closer to the end of this year, and slip into a new beginning with renewed hope, rejuvenated mind, and a refreshed body, I’m going to go all in and focus on making AppStoreDownload.com one of THE premier websites for Technology, Science, Sports, Entertainment, and Political Commentary. It’s going to be an absolute RIOT and I’m pretty confident that you guy’s will surely love and embrace this new strategy. Also, hopefully, with the blessing of the ‘Money Gods’, I’m planning on a complete overhaul of the website with a brand new logo, and a much more fluid user-experience – that shit costs a lot of dough, bruhhh (approx. $10 to $15K).

My Smartphone Gave Me A Concussion

Football Concussion

So, here I was going about my daily business, staring at computer screens for hours at a time, watching flashing red and green lights, waiting for a signal, or to put it more aptly, for an opportunity to pounce on, all the while marveling at the irresistible power of capitalism, trying to soak it all in, and suddenly, I felt this sharp pain stabbing at the back of my right eye, like someone trying to push my eyeball with an icepick from the inside out; following that, I felt discombobulated and a strong sense of confusion that I’d never experienced before. This whole incident lasted for about 2 mins, and left me with a feeling of “Dude, there’s something seriously wrong with you man. You need to call your doc and get checked up ASAP.” I did just that and scheduled the earliest appointment with my doctor, who after thorough examination, concluded that my symptoms where similar to those of someone suffering from a head trauma or a concussion. It’s been eons since I last played any form of physical contact sport, which rendered his whole diagnosis incorrect. After going over a list of a zillion different causes, he asked me whether I was a smartphone junkie, to which I replied “Hell yeah I am!” To which he replied, “Aah, and therein lies your problem.” According to him, repeated use of smartphone for reading purposes .i.e. Texts, Emails, Articles, etc… can put serious stress on your eyes and your brain, and lead some serious complications, one of which is concussion like symptoms.

CAUTION: Do Not Jailbreak Your Android Device

How To Unlock Android Device

So, the other day I was just messing around with my Samsung Galaxy S4 and I thought to myself, “Bruh, how cool would it be if we could Jailbreak this motha-f**kin piece of tech right here. We could literally turn this Samsung Galaxy S4 into the f**kin Death-Star with a fully functional Kali Linux Distribution on this bitch. Let’s go ma *N-Word* – let’s do this!” And just like that, I literally signed my own death-warrant that ultimately culminated in me running an FDISK on my Windows PC (Partition), and with over 10+ hours of lost productivity, all because I wanted to see gain motha-f**kin root access to my Android Device. Un-Freakin-Real. Bruh, you’re better off going getting kicked in Deez Nuts a Million times than trying to jailbreak your Android Device. Trust me, it will literally destroy your life!

Now that we’re done with the monologue, let’s get to what the fu*k really happened and why I’m so against Jailbreaking your Android Device.

Coming Soon: NHIE Power 1000™

I'm Back, Bitches!

People, We’re BACK!

Locked, loaded, and better than ever. After a long hiatus due to some unforeseen circumstances that led to monumentally long delays in our app development process, we’ve finally turned the page and will launching some new and exciting apps beginning October 2015. As a matter of fact, we’ve already submitted our latest app to Apple for approval, and hopefully by the end of next week, we’ll be LIVE on the iTunes App Store. It’s indeed a good feeling to be blogging about OUR latest innovations, as opposed to blogging about sh*t developed by others that we totally don’t give a single flying F**K about. Although we love to promote and encourage the work of other app developers, lets be real, THIS IS APP STORE DOWNLOAD we’re talking about! Y’all know what time it is!

iPhone Apps For US Presidential Election 2016

Vote 2016 US Presidential Election

Well, with all the annoying and puke-inducing hype around the idiocy of Donald Trump, I thought it’d be a good idea to do a blog post on the must have iPhone Apps for the US Presidential Election 2016, since as hard as it is for me to type this, WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED! This idiocy isn’t going anywhere, and is only going to get worse.

So, without further ado, let’s get straight to it.

YouTube Beta Testing New Ad Platform

YouTube Logo

Alright, so here I was expecting to the new trailer of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and outta nowhere, despite having AdBlock Plus installed on my Chrome Browser, which by the way blocks just about every possible Ad format that there is – popup or otherwise – was rendered worthless when I was shown a video Ad by YouTube in a format I’ve never seen before. The Ad appeared to be attached to/part of the video. At first I didn’t know WTH was going on, and later thought that maybe Marvel attached the video commercial to the Avengers Trailer just as part of their revenue boosting strategy. But when I refreshed the page, the commercial was GONE! It was very bizarre, and for the first time in a very very very long time, AdBlock Plus failed to block the YouTube Ad. So, like a good netizen and a certified free-thinker that I am, I did some digging around and surprisingly I wasn’t able to find much information on this; which leads me to conclude that YouTube possibly might be beta testing a new Ad Format that even a powerful tool like AdBlock Plus cannot block.
