 BY THE APPLE GIRL

Jonathan Mann, the guy known for his antenna gate song played at the Apple press conference, Apple patent song and the iPhone 4 song is back with a Siri song. 

Check it out. Siri is stealing the thunder from the Android voice assistant. More on this later.

Just for kicks- Androidfy yourself!

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC    

 So, I was just browsing for new apps on the Market and I came across Androidfy. For all you Fandroids out there, you can make an Andorid avatar of yourself.  You can stretch or shrink  the little green robot, accessorize it with an outfit and even put a hairdo of your choice!Here’s the masterpiece I put together depicting myself and AppleGirl 😉

 Now Google is making you into a cartoon robot.  Would you want to use it as your Facebook or Twitter profile picture! I don’t think so. Wonder why I’m wearing that pink flower?? 🙂

Just for kicks – iPad 2 is revolutionary?

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC 

You know those revolutionary features on the iPad 2? Well here’s exactly how I feel about it 🙂

BY THE APPLE GIRL 

GoogleChic, a white iPad 2, two cameras and Facetime on the iPad 2 is not revolutionary 🙂 The super sleek design, increased data and graphics processing with the same battery life all at only $499 is 🙂 (Did I mention the smart covers? No one had thought of that before!)

Here is another funny clip from the Conan O Brian show about the new iPad 2.

Just for kicks – Who is Obama’s favorite techie?

BY THE APPLE GIRL  

Check out this picture from Obama’s dinner with the tech titans! He is flanked by the techie darling Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs! 🙂

Do you see Eric Shmidt at the far end of the table? Just saying 😉

President Obama this week announced, in his weekly address that education is the key in the creation of the “next Intel, next Google or next Microsoft”.

“That’s how we’ll ensure that the next Intel, the next Google, or the next Microsoft is created in America, and hires American workers.”

There’s no mention of Apple, hey I’m just saying 😉

Just for kicks! An iPhone controlled BeerBot!

BY THE APPLE GIRL 

Too lazy to get off the couch and get your beer? You are not alone! Virginia Tech grads have built an iPhone controlled mini fridge that will shoot cans of beer across the room. Doesn’t that sound ingenious? NOT! 🙂

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC  

The beer cannon is pretty cool, but they could have finished a keg by the time they finished building it 😉

Check out the power of Android, it can do much more than launch beer. Hey, at least it’s doing something productive.

Just for kicks! Christmas Duel!

BY THE APPLE GIRL 

GoogeChic, I’m getting you one of the elusive white iPhones to hang on your Christmas tree this holiday. The Retina display is made of premium photo paper and you can use the ornament as a refrigerator magnet for the rest of year.

If you don’t fancy the white iPhone ornament, I’ll get you the black iPhone along with the master ornament himself –Steve Jobs on the cover of Time! Like it? 🙂


 

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC 

Sounds good AppleGirl! I have a perfect spot for that white iPhone on my tree. That would be the bottom tier of the tree, so that it is bound to be knocked down when my adorable dog runs under the tree like a maniac. He’ll probably trample over  the pretty retina display as well. 🙂

Since there aren’t any Android ornaments on sale, I’m going to be crafty this year and make you  ones like the ones below. While I’m at it, I’ll also make you some gingerbread cookies so that you can enjoy them when you hang up your gifts.

P.S. Tomorrow is your chance to win a Nexus S if you show off some awesome homemade gingerbread cookies! Check it out via Twitter and Facebook.

Just for kicks! iPad protest!

BY THE APPLE GIRL

If you are protesting in a rally like these guys in Lithuania, you will definitely need a sign to hold up. And what better way to make a sign than to stick an iPad to the end of a stick.

From Obama’s autograph to a Lithuanian pensioner demonstrating against the goverment, iPad is ruling the planet!

GoogleChic, unless you are giving away free binoculars during the protest, I wouldn’t advise you on trying this with the Galaxy Tab 😉



BY THE GOOGLE CHIC

That is one neat idea, I especially loved the plastic bag around the iPad to make it waterproof!

As for the Samsung Tab being too small, well it it looks like there are rumors that in 2011 there will be a 10 inch Tab in the market.

What’s also interesting is that Samsung recently released a 10.1 inch prototype which uses a super thin LCD technology that is currently being developed by them.  The downside is that it’ll take a couple of years for them to be able to release this to the market but think about the possibilities, am sure we’ll have more than a sign on a stick concept! Check out the pics below.

Just for kicks! Obama’s first iPad autograph!

BY THE APPLE GIRL  

Sylvester Cann IV, got to meet the President at a rally in Seattle. He didn’t have a pen and paper to get an autograph but had his iPad on him. So he pulled up Adobe Ideas App (GoogleChic, before you jump on the sound of Adobe, this is not Adobe Flash ;)) and wrote “Mr. President, Sign my iPad”. And Obama did. Check out Sylvester’s web page for a video if you are interested.

Interestingly, later the same day Obama met with Steve Jobs to discuss economy, innovation and technology. Jobs, the man driving future technology, is definitely someone Obama should be having a talk with.

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC  

Sweet! I’m glad that there’s an Adobe product on the iPad after all 🙂 Maybe Jobs will now give Adobe some love.

By the way I hope Sylvester Cann IV backed up the famous Obama autograph somewhere safe in case his iPad crashes (I’m just saying, since the iPad doesn’t have external storage).

Not only did Obama meet with Jobs, he also met with Google VP’s Marissa Mayer for a $30K a plate fundraising dinner.

Just for kicks – IPad vs Galaxy Tab

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC  

Here’s a funny video that I couldn’t pass up. AppleGirl, do we sound like that in our duels :)? We need to create our own version for the iPhone 4 vs Samsung Captivate !

BY THE APPLE GIRL  

Of course not! We don’t sound like that! In our duels, Apple turns out as the winner! 😉

Here’s a funny video about iPhone 4 vs. HTC Evo 4G. I am going to let the video do all the trash talk against Google and Android!

Just for kicks – Antenna Aid

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC 

I’m sure by now everyone is tired of hearing about the iPhone antenna issue, but somehow I just couldn’t pass this one up. A picture speaks a thousand words and proves my point nicely

BY THE APPLE GIRL 

It’s called the Halo effect!

While the band-aid is licking off the back of an apple (or is it the side?) , lets support etsy and the starving artists! Way to go!
