Time Waster - ‘Shadowscape’
“Shadowscape” is a fast-paced and fun platform game. You are trapped in a shadowy world. There are clues to a different landscape all around you, but you have to escape. And escape is difficult.
This game is both fun and challenging, walking that line between keeping you going and rage-quitting. And it’s such a fine line. Everything about this game amps up the intensity, from the music to the stark shadowy background. You move fast, and you have to be careful because you can die in many different ways. But that’s OK, because moving helps you earn new lives.
This is your vocab on Twitter
#Hashtags. They’ve become so embedded in our daily lives, it’s easy to not think twice when we see one. As of late, however, hashtags have become more than just a way to participate in pop culture. They are changing the way we write, uprooting sentence structure and archiving social conversations that we normally toss to the side. #Letmeshowyouhow.
When hashtags first started, it was a way to join and link your conversation or ideas to similar ones. If people wanted to talk about #puppies or #backtoschool, they would just add that wonderful pound symbol, and presto, people who were looking for #puppies could see it. It was a system that worked.
Back to school: staying in the know on the go
Back to school can be exciting but also an overwhelming time for students, parents and teachers. Whether students forget to check for homework assignments or miss class due to illness, they don’t want to fall behind. Access to information and connecting with teachers and other students is just a click away with the help of smartphones and tablets. According to a recent survey by U.S. Cellular, 74 percent of households with children under the age of 18 have at least one tablet. Tablets and smartphones are becoming a simple tool to ensure students keep making the grade.
Tablets are also being used in the classroom: learning apps, eBooks, online educational videos and Internet access can all enhance the learning experience. With reliable mobile access to the internet, teachers and students can effectively harness the full capability of this technology. According to a recent Student Mobile Device Survey conducted by Harris Interactive, 87 percent of students would like to use digital textbooks so they don’t have to carry so much in their backpacks. And half of those students surveyed use their pocket-friendly smartphones instead of tablets.
Time Waster - Nested
“Nested” is technically a clicking game, made by the same developer as “Cookie Clicker” known for being just what it sounds like, a game where you click things.

You Start with a universe, inside the universe is a host of galactic super cluster, nested in there are countless galaxies, nested in there are star systems and nebula, planets, stars, continents and more.
