Magic Tricks on myHIP
Mar 20th, 2009 by myhip

Over the past several months, myHIP has released 3 magic tricks for the iPhone/iPod touch.

Interestingly, reviews for these 3 apps have been polar to say the least. We get nearly as many 5 star ratings as we do 1 star ratings.

Those people that understand what magic is, tend to give it a good review, while those that don’t… well, probably don’t get it.

Magic is Magic, it’s illusion, it’s not real, it’s obviously a trick. To give a magic trick a 1 star rating because you were tricked into believing that the illusion was real is very odd. If you went to a magic show in Las Vegas, would you expect that the tricks are real? That the lady really gets cut in half, or that the plane vanishes before your very eyes?

To those folks that gave the apps good reviews, you get it. You can appreciate the art of magic. You understand that magic is not about reality, but about the illusion.

New Application Submitted to Apple – Yo’ Momma on myHIP
Feb 21st, 2009 by myhip

This new application is a huge library of “Yo’ Momma” jokes.

The history of Yo’ Momma jokes (yes it actually has a history) is a bit scattered, but most will agree on one thing… they are funny as all heck.

Way back when I was a kid growing up in Brooklyn, friends would usually play nice for the most part. Whether it was playing stickball, punch ball, or even just throwing a ball against a stoop (a stoop is the outside staircase leading to the front door), we’d have a blast hanging out with our friends.

On occasion however, fun could sometimes turn into fighting if things didn’t go right. Most often that fighting turned into a battle of words. Those word battles most often turned into rants about the other persons Mom. From the simple “go home, yer Momma’s callin’”, to the ever popular “yer Momma wears combat boots”, the ranting and battling has turned into an art form.

Over the years, the battling became the game. Kids would gather on street corners and two people would start hurling insults at each other in a game called “the dozens”. The kid who was able to hurl the best insults would get an immediate response of “woahs and cheers” from the crowd. The winner was declared when the other player had no more insults to hurl, or gave up in shame.

This entertainment application is a huge library of Yo’ Momma jokes. With over 1,170 insults, it is clearly one of the largest archives of Yo’ Momma jokes for you to enjoy.

Welcome to the myHIP.com blog
Feb 1st, 2009 by myhip

myHIP.com has been around for as long as there has been an internet in some fashion or another.

No, myHIP has nothing to do with your physical hip, but more so with the electronic devices that you hang from your hip.

In the early days myHIP was a tool for sending text messages to pagers. It evolved into a site that discussed two-way paging, which further evolved into messaging device like the RIM 950, and the Palm VII.

Today it’s mainly about the Apple iPhone, RIM, and other smartphones.

Over the past two years, we’ve concentrated our efforts on building web applications for the iPhone, and recently expanded to building simple iPhone native applications.

Who knows were we will be in the future? But, it’s for sure that if there are neat gadgets that hang from your hip, myHIP will be there too.
