2012-04-16 WSVA Show Notes

Back for another look at the month in tech.  We had lots of calls and questions so to hear them check out the podcast and let me know what you think.

Here are some of the links we covered.

Tech News
NYC phone booths to get second lives as slate stalls

Believe it or not, but there are still hundreds, nay, thousands of phone booths out there on the streets of New York City. Most of them go untouched — though, usually that has more to do with some mysterious substance covering the handset.

The city is preparing to update this urban staple by replacing the touch tone quarter eaters with 32-inch touchscreens.

The phone booth will now become your one stop shop for restaurant suggestions, local landmark locations with more information to be added over time.

Chocolate Printer Goes on Sale

Choc Edge is proudly launching the world first commercial 3D chocolate printer, Choc Creator, for users who make creative chocolates. Choc Creator is a simple, yet versatile desktop 3D chocolate printer.

Choc Creator utilizes an easy-to-use syringe based chocolate deposition head which allows users to rapidly install and remove syringe head units. The design enables users to refill the syringe with fresh chocolate or different types of chocolates conveniently.

Temple Run

Run for your life!

The addictive mega-hit Temple Run is now out for Android! All your friends are playing it – can you beat their high scores?!

You’ve stolen the cursed idol from the temple, and now you have to run for your life to escape the Evil Demon Monkeys nipping at your heels. Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, unlock new characters, and see how far you can run!

Thanks for taking a read and a listen and make sure you come back on May 14th for the next show with Jim Britt and myself.
