Introducing Smart Bingo Cards

by Scott on September 27, 2010

I’d like to introduce the latest title from Smart Productivity Software, it’s called Smart Bingo Cards.  Smart Bingo Cards, if you haven’t guessed already, is software used to create bingo cards.  The primary audience for this application is educators and parents.

Smart Bingo Cards comes with ready made templates for the most popular bingo categories and we will continue to add additional categories on a regular basis.  For example, there are ready made word lists for categories like Halloween Bingo, Christmas Bingo, English Grammar, and many, many others.

Of course, printing the bingo cards is super easy (see the simple options to the left).  To print, simply select how many cards you want per page and how many pages you would like.  All of the printed cards will be unique, no matter how many you print.  You can also print a call list.  Every time you print a call list you get a brand new, completely unique, randomly created list.  The call list can either contain a simple list of all the words or you can print the heading letters along with it (i.e. B-Little Rock or just Little Rock).

The software is the easiest available software of its kind.  The installation is a simple 2MB file and doesn’t require any additional downloads.  After you download the setup file, you don’t have to be connected to the internet either, it doesn’t get any simpler.  Our slogan is that you can make 20 bingo cards in 5 minutes or less.  The license permits the software to be installed on all of your household computers as well as your workplace computer.

There are some other additions to the Smart Productivity Software family coming soon:

Simple Chore List

Simple Grocery List

League Schedule Creator

These titles will hopefully be available before the new year!  All of my icons come from the wonderful resources located at Mouse Runner.

Apple’s New Slogan

by Scott on June 25, 2010

Here’s Apple’s new slogan, based on the response that C.K. Sample received when he emailed Steve Jobs about the signal loss problem when holding the iPhone 4.

Here is Steve Job’s full response:

Gripping any phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.
