Nose Candy for Android

  1. At least 4 people after getting their iPhones showed me the ‘hilarious’ beer drinking app that makes the ‘beer’ disappear when phone is tilted towards the mouth. My response was ‘you actually paid for that?’

    This is equally, if not more so. . .unimpressive.

    ‘Back in my day, when we wanted a buzz, we actually drank real beer and snorted real cocaine! These kids today and their virtual-whatnot. . .Fiddlesticks!’

    1. I’ve been spending some quality time looking through vintage novelty catalogs and honestly, 90% of the “apps” I see fall right in the “novelty” category.

      40 years ago one had to buy a whoopie cushion to make a fake fart noise.
      30 years ago one had to buy an electronic keychain to make a fake fart noise.
      20 years ago one could download or record a fake fart noise and play it on their PC.
      10 years ago one could go to a Flash “soundboard” site to make a fake fart noise.
      Nowadays one can pay for a pocket computer and buy a fake fart noise.

      2010: The year novelties are digitized, monetized and pocketized.

        1. Please go and purchase any pre-1979 U.S. novelty catalog. I say pre-1979 because beginning in 1980, parents groups, ninnies and folks who are now known as “helicopter” parents started to assert their political influence and force toy/novelty manufacturers to get rid of “bad” stuff targeted “to kids” in their catalogs.

          I sa “to kids” because when anyone looks through these vintage novelty catalogs one can see an egalitarian world where corny jokes kids would like (fake bug in fake ice cube) are sold right next to ‘personal vibrators” (didos), rings with “secret compartments” (for drugs) and “realistic replica guns” (for fake hold ups).

          So now look in the app store. Tons of games and tools, but you can find variants of every broad concept in the iPhone app store.

          The app store is not practical. It is based on impulse purchases. So someone buying a fake beer app makes sense. And since I am a web developer, I am paying attention to that because we are entering a new world of web development where a simple front-end doodad trick/gimmick can pay the bills as simply as a complex CMS I once had to labor over for weeks.

          I mean look at 3D dice rollers on an iPhone. Brilliant idea! All cool goofy things will start moving into the web app/portable app realm sooner rather than later. Who wants to really keep boxes of joy buzzers in their warehouse when you can infinitely produce them and charge 99 cents on the Apple iTunes store?

          1. My “anecdotal ‘evidence’” is based on (1) client requests and (2) usage observations in NYC by me.

            Virtually every person I see on the subway using an iPhone app or moblle app is playing a game or doing something “non-productive.”

            Very few “app” requests are based on practical concepts.

            I have no doubt there are practical apps out there, but the vast majority of mobile app developers are creating games and doodads and not much else.

          2. I have no doubt there are practical apps out there

            And no doubt in usage by people aside from the people you creepily sneak peeks on in the subway…

            Please admit the app store isn’t entirely “impractical” and moove on…. moove on…

            Or don’t, I don’t care…

          3. Creepily sneak peeks? Have you ever riden on the NYC subway? Dude, if you can’t see someone playing Angry Birds or some Tetris or Breakout clone or some card game on the subway, you are blind!

          4. Yawn, red herring still red herring…. still haven’t proven to me the app store is entirely impractical because you’ve watched some people play Angry Birds on the NYC subways.

          5. What about all those other people on the NYC subway, who aren’t being unproductive on their smartphones. Are they producing anything? Probably not. So, my anecdotal evidence is that people playing games on the subway are equally as productive as those who are not playing games on the subway.

            Oh, newspapers you say? Well, as for my regular anecdotal evidence on public transportation here in Los Angeles, I see more people consuming productive content on thier iPads than I do reading newspapers. Strange, right?

      1. You certainly make a point. I mean, there’s at least one “X-ray vision” app floating around, isn’t there?

        Is there a virtual Sea Monkey simulator? The thing is, would such a thing simulate the ones depicted in the ads or the real ones?

  2. INCREDIBLY. STUPID.

    “I’m going to fork out a buck to simulate taking a drug that makes everyone think I’m an asshole and is horrendously bad for me!”

    Coke is a boring drug for boring people.

  3. I’ve seen it coming for some time. Cocaine is no damn good for anybody. The future. . . . The future is grass. Grass, buddy! I have 60 tons of Thai stick coming in. It’s on the way.
    RIP Raul Julia.
    @teapot I’d say coke is an egotistical drug for egotistical people. Boring is in the eye of the beholder and the nose of the besnorter.
    INCREDIBLY. STUPID. Well, I certainly fell that way after spending millions and seeing coke kill the person I loved most in this world. I’m just sayin’.

  4. Tequila_$unrise_1988 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPSPSgCq_ZY&feature=player_profilepage#t=286s SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen Tequila Sunrise it is an 80s classic and this clip gives away the ending. Looks like the whole movie is posted in 10 min sections although I wouldn’t recommend watching it that way. Anybody considering trying cocaine I implore to reconsider. Cocaine is cool until it’s not and then it’s too late. Chewing coca leaf or drinking coca tea is cool. Peace.

  5. 90% may be novelty, but the other 10,000 are pretty damn useful.

    Anyway, it’s an entertainment device-cum-PDA. What’s wrong with novelty?

    SMARTPHONES SHOULD ONLY DO SPREADSHEETS!

  6. Does Android have the baby shaker app that BB made such a big deal out of when it appeared on the App Store for twenty minutes a year or two ago?

  7. If this were a proper coke app, it would deduct $20 from your account every time you invoked it.
