The news is Adobe is moving to Creative Cloud only. Want a new version of Photoshop, well cough up $20-$50/month by annual contract now! This is awesome for businesses. But sucks for freelancers. This is obviously a sneaky way to bring in new customers and stop pirating of their software. This trend is kinda annoying. I was all for it when SimCity came out but SimCity is game not a...
I want to love you again Myspace. But I don’t think you’ll be able to recover this time. You’re no different than the windows phone at this point. Why drag out this miserable death. Justin you should’ve changed the name from Myspace to something else, so no one would relate it to the disaster that it is. Those impressive stats (picture above) mean nothing now. [[MORE]] ...

700 Digital Marvel #1s for Free
Comixology is giving away for Free 700 Digital Downloads including Marvel’s #1s. I counted only 688 of actual Marvel Titles. Ok… finding 700 Free Comics is rare. And not always so easy. The site is incredibly slow when I visited it and got a few errors. But it will be worth the trouble when you have that much eye candy and reading material. This offer ends Tuesday! Act Fast!
Chromebook Pixel available now!
Google has started selling their new Chromebook Pixel at $1299. Yikes that’s a lot for a Chromebook. What justifies the high cost? Well premium parts, Gorilla Glass multi-touchscreen, Intel i5 chip, 32GB or 64GB solid state drive, Backlit keyboard and the fact they could sell on it “sale” for $999 in a few months? So far on paper it really doesn’t seem to cutting edge for...
The New SimCity Coming March 5th 2013!
It’s been a long time since I’ve played SimCity. A very long time! SimCity is now in its 6th release. I got my hands on the closed beta 2nd round and boy is it fun. My short time with SimCity showcased some amazing visuals and gameplay. I just know I’m going to spend long hours playing the game. Best of all… No more placing electrical lines! I told you I haven’t...
Tech Theater with my 2+ year old Android
Oh my little HTC Aria, you’re so cute and little but pack so much power. You make people stop in the street and ask me, “Hey, what phone you got?” HTC Aria your 3.5” screen is beautiful, but you may have led me to get a new prescription on my glasses. You wanna know the weather? HTC Aria delivers weather conditions in seconds. Sunny & 65 degrees :) HTC Aria? HTC...
iWatch (my thoughts)
The news feeds are letting everyone know an “iWatch” from Apple is coming. Apple’s history of under delivering their first generation product and through the years the 3rd or 4th version of the product becomes a must have item, we believe the iWatch can be a huge disappointment or mega hit. Everyone wants the Dick Tracy watch. I totally would love that! Bluetooth & E-ink...

Seinfeld Fans the show lives on… on Twitter! Visit @seinfeldtoday Yes I’ve seen every single Seinfeld episode, and if you’re a big fan like me you must visit them on Twitter!

Tumblr Video Error?
Tumblr Icon (Photo credit: chadarizona) Tumblr is a great blogging platform. Plus it doesn’t care if I run ads… not like some other platforms *COUGH*WORDPRESS*COUGH. But just curious if other people’s embedded video links are working? If you look at some previous posts you’ll see the videos are gone.
Rosie the Robot is so close!
Rosie the Robot Maid from the Jetsons was one of my favorite characters on the show. Her sarcastic attitude, shiny metal maid outfit, squeaky wheels and beeping lights was just the highlight. And at last we finally have a Rosie prototype![[MORE]] I only thought of Rosie because my car was making a rattling noise and just reminded me of the lovely robot maid. Although I would love nothing more...

Pardon Our Relocation
I feel like its been forever since we talked! We are getting settled in our new home in Silicon Valley. Surprisingly enough the real estate market is gone crazy here. Tons of people have been foreclosed upon so the rental market is crazy. Who knew finding a place to live is really hard, at least trying to stay within a budget. Well we hope to have our operation up and running soon. If there is...
Kia Rio Los Angeles Scavenger Hunt
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio. All opinions are 100% mine. What’s more exciting than running into a celebrity? Going on a scavenger hunt to find one! Specifically the very pretty Christina Milian. Well Kia sent a small group of people on that hunt and made a few stops along the way. Watch the video for their expierence: After watching the video, I felt...
Interview With a Bot Maker and Create your own...
Here at Robot Sonic we really love robots. Robots come in all shapes and sizes, but they can also exist online. You probably know bots that exist online to be a menace, for the most part they are. Due to our grammatical error on Twitter we discovered a helper bot. We decided to have a closer talk with the Creator of @StealthMountain. Enjoy! RS: Greetings Stealth Mountain and to its creator....
Tell Everyone to Buy Nokia's Smartphones
If Nokia was a car maker, it would be Ford. As Ford has spent tons of money to rebound to produce the best product the world has ever seen, so has Nokia. The Nokia Lumia 900 is the phone people should get. It’s simple, Microsoft and Nokia are spending millions to prove Windows Phone is a good competitor to iPhone and Android. I believe that to be true. Here’s why: *Simple User...
How do I look?
We’ve changed our interface! Tumblr is a great blogging platform with lots of options to customize, some might say better than wordpress. Anyway, we are still working on a few little kinks but it’s coming together! What do you think?
Facebook logo (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It has finally happened!!! Facebook is down! Millions of people are getting up from their chairs and doing something with their lives… Oh hey Facebook is back! *click click type type*
Facebook Allow Users to Vote on Changes
Now that Facebook is public, all sorts of changes will be happening. Some might even make Mark Zuckerburg cry in his sleep. An Amendment to Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, under Section 13 Amendments: If more than 7,000 users comment on the proposed change, we will also give you the opportunity to participate in a vote in which you will be provided alternatives....
Katy Perry Timeline Facebook Video
If you’ve seen Katy Perry’s New Video for “Wide Awake”, then you know someone messed up. I have to say there is no imagination, creativity or originality in this video, the song sucks too. All it does is promote Facebook. So Sad. View Video Below: English: Katy Perry at MTV Video Music Awards 2011. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Terahertz Wireless Connection blazing fast!
The Wireless Spectrum (PDF) is insane to look at. For the amount of communication we conduct it just isn’t enough. While the chart only goes up to 300 GHz it shows near the bottom that the Terahertz Band is in the Infrared range. Which is much faster than Microwaves. Imagine your Wi-Fi traveling extremely fast with this technology.[[MORE]] According to AllThingsD, Typically,...
GM don't like Facebook, HA!
I know I’m a little bit behind on the Tech News but I thought this story was the funniest story ever! GM’s marketing will make no difference on car sales. Besides some of the Cadillacs and Chevy Trucks, why would anyone want to buy a GM vehicle? Not when Ford, Toyota, and Honda can advertise minimally and still have good sales figures. Let’s see the real strategy, announcing...
The Watch Trailer (Video)
You gotta love the internet. It’s the only place you’ll find unrated movie trailers released by the major motion picture studios. The Watch—formerly named Neighborhood Watch—is the a new movie trailer that features a great cast of comedians. Normally I would ignore this movie or wait for it on Redbox. But the trailer sold me because the language is uncensored.[[MORE]] In a...
There has been a long break from posting on Robot Sonic because we welcomed a new baby to our family. We are all resting and enjoying the little one. We hope to come back with a vengeance once we’ve caught up on sleep!
Public Beat - 4/10/12 (Video)
I work in a large Metropolitan city and you will hear the weirdest conversations in public places. I can’t let people get away with these uncensored conversations. It’s time I start documenting it. I call it Public Beat. 4/10/12 - TED[[MORE]] I tried real hard not to say something. I remembered what my wife always tells me, nobody likes unsolicited advice. So I just listened. What I heard in...

Best Songs with your Car Windows Down!
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio. All opinions are 100% mine. Kia Motors and Spotify are collaborating to make the ultimate playlist while driving your car, windows down. Spring has definitely come early this year. What better way to celebrate than to get a car wash and roll down your windows and play Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.[[MORE]] Submit...
NSFW* A Nude Hope: A Star Wars Burlesque NSFW
Kinda NSFW but no one is naked so it’s probably ok. Three words: STAR, WARS, BURLESQUE! Nerds should be lining up for this show. Movie themed Burlesque shows are abundant but a Star Wars themed burlesque is pretty rare and they usually come and go. Gorilla Tango Theater located in my home town Chicago, Illinois is the host to A Nude Hope, Boobs of Khan, Boobs and Gumbas, Temple of Boobs...
May 3rd is the Greatest Day for Comic Book Movies!
I have a large AMC movie theater near my place and I’m so excited for the Ultimate Marvel Marathon.

Instagram: Android Doesn't Need You (TOP Five...
There are so many photo filter apps available, why is Instagram so popular? I’ll tell you why, iPhone is the answer. The iPhone camera hardware is one of kind and it’s damn good. Android hardware is one big old mess and the quality differs for each smartphone manufacturer. Which is a good reason for Instagram not to expand it’s community of mobile photographers by adding...
The New iPad: iPad3, iPadHD, iPad2S, iPad4G,...
Here at Robot Sonic, we appreciate and recognize innovation. We hate when companies hold a press release, where the guests have to travel from all over the country—paying lots of money to do so—only to announce a small upgrade and a crappy name. I hold Tim Cook responsible for the name, there are just so many better options, than “The New iPad.”[[MORE]] So we don’t...
Pulp Fiction Shakespeare: A Must See!
When I was a freshman in high school, my friend and I sneaked into a showing of Pulp Fiction at our local theater. The scene we caught right as we sat down was when Vincent accidentally shoots Marvin in the face. I’ll never forget that moment, because instead of being shocked, the audience laughed insanely loud. So I guess I later found the humor in it. That made me a fan of Quentin...
Luminate Part 2
This is a follow up to our Luminate review. Luminate embeds sharing options and advertising in images. Here is my summary: So we tried Luminate for a week. We realized the image below wasn’t going to change. We realize a week isn’t really enough time, but it just seems like an unwelcome tool. So it failed for us. Luminate technology is better suited for online retail stores,...
@StealthMountain: Sneak Peak or Sneak Peek
Have you been a victim of the “sneak peak” on Twitter? If you haven’t you need to try it. Just head to Twitter and type, “I love the sneak peak video of the new Pixar Movie!” Then wait. I hope you’ve noticed the spelling is wrong and should say “sneak peek.” You will soon get a reply tweet that says, “I think you mean sneak peek.” ...
The Avengers - Official Trailer #2
Oh Yes Please! The new Avengers trailer looks fantastic. My only two quarrels are lack of Edward Norton and there are better choices for a villian, rather than going with Loki. Robert Downey Jr. is who I’m most excited to see, because he plays Iron Man perfectly. The other characters I hope to be pleasantly surprised. Anyway The Avengers looks to be a barrel of mindless fun and releases...
