On my iPhone/Android...Real Racing 3

 
Real racing icon
 
 
 
It's the holidays and sometimes you want to use your technology for more than just email, spreadsheets and phone calls. This has lead me to seek ut some apps that bring a bit more fun to my iPhone, our iPad and our Android devices, like my Kindle Fire.
 
I have been watching YouTube series playthoughs of the Forza and F1 Racing games for consoles and PCs and this got me to thinking about racing games so I did a little searching and found Real Racing 3. I have been enjoying it greatly for the last several days. Real Racing is a free-to-play game. This means you can download and play but it also offers a host of real-world points that can be purchased to speed game play. For example, if you decide to upgrade one of your vehicles, you may need to wait 10-15 minutes before you can play you next race, or pay a few extra credits to continue immediately. I am not one to invest a lot of real money in games, but I have found a lot of game play in the free version, simply waiting out the delays to play the next round.
 
You play Real Racing 3 by tilting your iPhone or iPad to steer and tapping the screen to accelerate and brake. In early stages, you can engage both auto acceleration and braking to help you get through the races or turn off the assists to gain more experience points and make the game more challenging.
 
Races take around 5-10 minutes to complete in each round, with different challenges like time trials, regular races, elimination head-to-head races and more. This make it an easily "snackable" game to play when you have a few minutes and want a quick, fun, break.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us
