Distinguished Tokens Vol. 3

This will be a series where you get to see 10 of the desirable items I find all over the internet each week. From cars, clothes, gadgets, women and food…it will all be here once a week for your liking.


Sunrise, your new calendar

February 20th, 2013

The Calendar app that comes stock on the iPhone does a pretty decent job at keeping you up to date with your schedule. It can sync with Google Calendar and other avenues as well. But there is always that one app that comes and replaces what you are used to. For the Mail app, there’s Mailbox. For Safari, there’s the Google Chrome app. And don’t get me started on the weather app…but currently I use Sky.

Now for the Calendar app there’s Sunrise. Sunrise initially connects via Facebook to sign in. You are then able to connect to multiple Google Calendar accounts or Linkedin. On the main screen, it shows you what you have schedule for your morning, afternoon and evening. It displays your Facebook friend’s birthdays for that day by showing their FB profile picture.

Swiping down on the top calendar brings up the other months and allows you to select other days. There’s an arrow button on the bottom left of the screen that acts as dedicated ‘Today’ button. You can add events, decline or accept invitations to Facebook and Google Calendar events, and easily get direction via the Apple Maps or Google Maps app, which ever you chose in Preferences, to any location that is attached to an event.

Ways to Add New Events

03-new-events

I noticed that there are two ways to add events. If you simply press the plus sign on the top right of the screen, a detailed New Event screen pops up and gives you the option to add title, start/end time, location, people, alert and what calendar it should be listed under. For those that need to add an event quickly, press and hold the plus sign and a quick dialog comes up and works similar to how you add events on Mac’s Calendar.

Populating New Events

The detailed new event is straight forward; type in all the information as usual. For the quick add, you type in a statement like “Dinner with Sher at 7pm at Loca Luna.” The app will fill in all the details for you as best as it can for you without and give you the ability to edit or add more details if necessary.

Preferences

02-options

You can play with the preference choose what you want to display and not to display. Take for instance the Facebook Event calendar. I have TONS of Facebook friends and they are always inviting me to some event. I don’t want to see all of that so I choose to not display that so I unselect that as a visible calendar. You can choose which of your maps you want notifications on for. Preferences allow you to change the default maps app, temperature unit, default calendar and alert settings.

Sunrise is very easy to use. It’s pretty much an awesome experience which is what really matters to me.


Kendrick Lamar ft. Jay-Z – Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix) *Updated*

March 18th, 2013

Here we have the actual UNTAGGED audio. Man…this shit rides.

At SXSW, Guru let this monumental track go. Kendrick Lamar’s stand-out track, Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe, is blessed by Jay-Z. I don’t know about how you feel, but to ME this is hands down the greatest collab of the year to me. And Kendrick starts blacking OUT towards the end! WHOOOOOOOOOOO. Video after the break.

More after the break…


This Is Water

May 9th, 2013

Three years before his death, Davis Foster Wallace gave a commencement address to Kenyon College’s class of 2005. The Glossary has taken this speech and made a great video out of it. I found the piece to be very inspirational as I find myself doing exactly what the guy in the video is doing. Stay inspired folks.
