Bringing back the oldies!

18 Mar

Imagine if you could fit your face in one of those old school yearbooks. Yes, those where you have the vintage photos, with the weird hairstyles, the ones that come from the perfect 50s or the punk rock 80s. Well, if you like to take fabulous photos of yourself, you can now use them and make your own yearbook photo with Yearbook Yourself.

This addictive website allows you to upload anyone’s picture and get different backgrounds from different decades. It’s very simple and easy to use, also because you can adjust your face to fit perfectly on the frame. You’re able to save it or even share it with friends on Facebook. We, the Ladies, can’t say it’s useful, but it’s incredibly funny! By the way, how do you like our examples above? Have fun yearbooking, just like we had!

 

Arcade Fire

16 Mar

At Lady Gadget Blog we are firm believers that technology should not just be confined to the home or your pockets, so we decided to a take a trip out to the big wide world (Central London) and see what we could discover for ourselves.

We ended up at the Trocadero centre in Picadilly Circus where ‘Funland’ has become a Mecca for geeky teenage boys. This is more a revisit of our wasted youth than a technology update.

Now, we’ve had something of a video-arcade- game phobia since we watched Tron, but in the name of research, somehow managed to overcome it. Continue reading

Which smartphone are you?

4 Mar

We’ve all seen the ‘I’m a PC’ Microsoft ad, so here is our take on it!

We went to find out for ourselves what is the most popular phone and it looks like the Blackberry is the hit phone among London students at the moment. What do you think? Which smartphone are you?

Top apps for girls on top

1 Mar

As the proud owner of an iPhone 4, I am obsessed with downloading the newest and best apps, so here’s my tips for the best ones out there right now.

1. Adobe Photoshop Express– for touch ups on a touch screen

This app allows you to crop, straighten, flip, soft focus as well as change the exposure, saturation, tint and contrast all in a tap of a few buttons (metaphorical buttons as it’s a touch screen)

2. Addison Lee– when you can’t face the night bus

This enables you to order a cab, gives you the price, (also with the nifty option of paying by card) time of arrival as well as the licence plate of the car so that you’ll never be stuck for a lift home.

Quora, the new amazing social network

25 Feb

You’re probably thinking: oh no, not another social media platform trying to take over! Except that Quora is actually useful, accessible and smart. You sign up, ask a question and then other users answer according to their knowledge, experience and opinions. Continue reading

Au Revoir Simone: Musical-box little girls

25 Feb

Au Revoir Simone was born in 2003, during a train journey where the three, soft voiced members realised that they had a common wish: creating a keyboard band. Since then, the New York trio included in each of their albums an indie, independent style.

Their last one, Still Night, Still Light, brings tracks like All or Nothing and Knight of Wands. Both call to mind soft lullabies in a bubbly electronic style. Continue reading
