ok, I need to cross check these cheat codes I got off the web, but I’m going to place them here and then check up on them keep or remove each cheat code as I verify them.  BTW, there are not cheats as much as they are steam mods. In the main menu section click… Read More


gear vr back

(Note, I’m posting this now, but its not done. But what I do want is feedback. Good list? Bad list? you have a better top 10? Tell me.) I finally got my Note 4 and start loading apps on the Samsung Gear VR and here is my top ten favorites.  Normally I do not include… Read More


simcity offline

With the Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, and Samsung gear VR there are many options for low cost VR.  As a long time SimCity mayor, my first thought was, how cool would it be to explore my city in VR!  So I waited.  Nothing.  Why? As you already know, SimCity is full 3D, you can navigate… Read More


When I first saw this in Reddit I thought it was pretty cool, why it was posted as a Japanese Visual multiplication method I don’t know since there was nothing in the comments saying it was Japanese.  But anyway, the idea is pretty simple.  To multiply two numbers between 11 and 99 you simply draw… Read More


fapgauge pebble

Not much more I can say here.  A fap gauge for the Pebble smart watch.  FapGauge. Pretty straight forward: – up button starts recording – down button stops – long press on the select button erases the highscore Records how long you take, how many faps total end faps per second. The highest fps is… Read More


oculus

Sounds crazy but perhaps not as much as you might think.  The main expressed reason Facebook bought Oculus is the ‘platform’.  Basically trying to get in front of the next shift in hardware. When Facebook launched they were king of desktop, but then mobile takes over and they had to play a bit of catchup. … Read More


Finally Mac people can play SimCity the way must of us prefer to play it, offline and with lockups.  The next time you log into the game you should see the alert for update 10.  Install it.  Including offline play, here are a few more nice things. New: SimCity Single-Player Mode. Enables Offline Play. Single-Player Mode… Read More


A LOOOONG time ago when I was at UC Berkeley studying computing in Architecture, my focus was on virtual environments.  During my research I was downhearted to find a flaw in what we all thought was the soon approaching golden age of VR.  VOR ( Vestibulo-ocular Reflex: explained at the bottom of the post) is… Read More


This actually came out almost a year ago but just noticed it now.  Its a collection of all your most wanted shortcuts in a nicely designed poster. Credit to endorken for making this. And just for fun, so kinda cheats short cuts.  These are in the manual BTW.   Alt-W = +$100k Alt-M = Sickness… Read More


Between living in the US and UK, I have owned a number of different cars, only repeating myself once with a BMW.  I liked each car for different reasons but the two BMW’s I got were first, REALLY great deals, and second, I like the balance of performance, gas mileage and general appearance of the… Read More


SimCity_2013_5_jailbreak

And so they have finally released SimCity in offline mode.  Well, its not out yet, but SimCity Offline is being tested at the moment.  Looks like they have it right.  You can play offline by yourself, you can install mods and save your games without ever touching the cloud.  Here is a snip from the… Read More


Actually, I expect a kickstarter any minute now.  But THIS is a great solution.  Just like a normal clam case but with controls. Natch! Now, as its shown here, it would not work because there is no way to support the flap, but if there was a solid hinge with a restriction, it could work.  … Read More


This is not new news, SimCity5 has had one of the worse release in recent memory.  As a big SimCity fan, I was sadden that I just could not justify paying for this.  I have been waiting for a good hack that will allow me to play offline, then I figured I would buy it. … Read More


microsoft listens

So Microsoft reversed itself.  All along they have been claiming that DRM is the soul of the system, and they reverse it in a few days.  What a joke. Here is the thing, the can turn it back on again anytime they want.  Also, now they claim they had to remove family and other features. … Read More


This is very cool, and something I have thought about. How cool would it be to have Risk like boards but of different maps, like the US or Europe?  Well Havoc has done that. Its a kick starter project but they have 15 designed maps so far, Civil War US, New York, United Kingdom, Los… Read More


If you have not seen the video already, I have placed it at the end of this post.  The game in question is Super Monster Bros by Adventure Time Pocket Free Games. This is a review from IGN, and its worth watching.  What is unbelievable about this is the cost of in app purchases.  Half… Read More


I have played my fair share of FPS games on the iPad and never enjoyed any of them.  When it comes to the UI for games, only SimCity like games seems to make the natural leap to iPad.  Well I think that has changed.  Enter ‘The Drowning’.  This game is not out yet, which really… Read More


computer trolls

When I was more active on this blog, I mostly wrote about the iPhone.  Especially jailbreaking.  The cat and mouse, back and forth between the Jailbreaking community and Apple. In time, a completely outside eco system based on Cydia appeared where people could submit apps, store purchase history and get SAAS services all without going… Read More

Ok, just for the records here are you cheats so far.  Now remember, these only work in sandbox mode. As I hear more, I’ll update this.  Also, if anyone finds new cheats for SC 5, let me know.
