ArcheAge (10x) and SwordArtOnline (1x)

You can play ArcheAge for free online, if you download and install it. It is both a “theme park” and/or a “sand box” live single and/or multiplayer game. You will learn and/or risk experiencing and/or enjoying “being lost” in a virtual world, where you may build/conquer/craft/solo/team. Sweet!

You can also watch SwordArtOnline, if you have a NetFlix (not free) account, and watch the episodes. What would happen if you signed up for an online single and/or multiplayer game that you could not log out from and if your physical life depended on your virtual survival?

Both virtual worlds I find worth watching:
. ArcheAge requires frequent computer interaction
. SAO requires minimal computer interaction

Either way, may you choose how you play and continue!

Why is the the Google Android Gmail App so hard to use?

I tried so hard to respond to a gmail message today, using my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which uses Google’s Android operating system and Google’s Android Gmail App.

Google’s Gmail Android App is very good at screening my daily emails. But it is SO hard to use when trying to Reply, as in, if I advertently go somewhere else on the device, then come back, there is NO EDIT OR SEND BUTTON for REPLIES.

Really… in this regard Google (Gmail) is as bad as Microsoft (YouTube) in getting mobile apps right. They leave you (mobile wise) hanging and having to go back to (shudder) a LAPTOP device to get it right.
