Show your word power with Score It (Word), a challenging word game. Stimulate your brain while having fun. Score It (Word) is a great way to improve word building skills that you can apply to many other word games.

Guess the Word

The object of the game is to guess the word from the first given letter. After each guess, a letter is placed in the word that is in the correct position. Any letter in the red ball is in the word but not in the correct position. If an invalid word is entered, you lose a turn, and the word is displayed in red. When you run out of time, the answer is displayed.

Extra Credit

The number of turns to guess the word is equal to the number of letters (five, six, or seven letters). If you solve the word in fewer tries, you earn bonus points. You start with three credits; with every five correct words, you earn an extra credit.

Score It (Word) helps warm up your brain before you hit that next Scrabble or Boggle game. Can you beat the clock?

Google World Wonders Project is Here!

Well, this is a very nice project that Google has just released information about. The Google World Wonders Project will allow you to be taken to 132 different locations around the world to explores Wonders that some of us may never get to see. This is an excellent educational and exploratory tool that will expand lessons taught on these areas. Google has partnered with several companies to offer the best images, videos, and models for each area to ensure that the experience is like you are actually there.

I have looked at several of the areas and found the interactive tools very easy to understand and use with additional information such as videos, photographs, and 3D Models located on the right side of the sight. This will definitely grow as time goes on but if you have longed to interact with some of these places but don’t have the time or money, try Google World Wonders Project and enjoy the show.

Kids love Clown Ball because the intuitive tilt control is easier to use than a touch screen. Parents love the game because it’s good, clean circus-themed fun for the kids…and for the adults.

Titanic II Setting Sail in 2016

Image

Just after the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, it is announced that Clive Palmer will be commissioning the construction of the Titanic II with a Chinese shipyard. The maiden voyage is set to be in four years, 2016, and will make the trip from England to New York. The ship will be just as luxurious as the original but the Titanic II will boast up-to-date safety equipment as well as modern construction and features.

I would like to see the Titanic II built the same as its predecessor for a more authentic feel but it looks like Palmer is wanting to operate this liner as a business as well so it is understandable building the ship in a more modern way. I am interested to see how this progresses so stay tuned for more updates as they become available over the next several months.

Google+ Update is Rolling Out



Well, it appears that Google+ has put in a pretty large overhaul on the social site and it looks pretty nice. I just logged into my account a little while ago and found that the changes look nice and are very sleek. The profile page change is one that is refreshing as is the chat bar on the right side so you are able to communicate a lot easier than before.  I also enjoy the left bar where you have the ability to change what categories are shown so that your most used areas – such as Photos, Circles, or Explore – are in place for quick, easy use.

I’m excited to see Google+ step it up a bit and I hope they continue to grow. This update makes it easier to navigate and use Google+ so no one should be complaining about that. I find it so convenient to have all of my stuff in one spot through Google and this is definately a step in the right direction for gaining subscribers.
