Daily Deals: You Can Run But You Can’t Hide and Noogra Nuts

You Can Run But You Can't HideToday Amazon offers You Can Run But You Can’t Hide by Duane Dog Chapman just for $1.99

“Freeze!”

Duane “Dog” Chapman entertains and inspires millions on Dog the Bounty Hunter, his #1-rated show on A&E — but there is more to his story. From troubled beginnings and tragedy to triumph and transformation, he reveals all for the first time in this no-holds-barred memoir.

Dog spent the first twenty-three years of his life on the wrong side of the law. In You Can Run, but You Cant Hide, he offers an inside look at his days as a gang member; his dark years of addiction and abuse; and how serving eighteen months in prison for a murder he didnt commit helped him recommit to his faith. He also shares stories of some of his most dangerous bounty hunts — including his capture of Max Factor heir and convicted rapist Andrew Luster, which made international headlines.

In You Can Run, but You Cant Hide, Dog recounts his incredible story, chronicling his journey from his onetime criminal past to the guiding faith that has led him to become one of the most successful bounty hunters in American history. Against all odds, Dog turned his life around and went from ex-con to American icon in the process. This is his story.

Some words about the Author.

Duane “Dog” Chapman is the most famous bounty hunter in the world and the star of A&E’s most-watched show, Dog the Bounty Hunter. He lives with his wife and children in Hawaii, where they own and operate Da Kine Bail Bonds.

 

Noogra NutsNoogra Nuts is a game which you can download for free today only.

Face it, we’re all a little nutty sometimes. But Noogra Nuts takes things farther than most of us would choose to go–unless you’re a squirrel.

In this quirky, arcade-style game for your Android device, you control a cute squirrel who possesses a unique ability: he can crack nuts using his head. How many nuts can you crack? There’s only one way to find out!

Now That’s Using Your Head

When the game begins, nuts will fall from the sky. (On the screen, that is. If actual nuts fall from the actual sky, move away from the tree you’re standing under.)

Using your device’s accelerometer, control the squirrel’s movement and press anywhere on the screen to make him jump. Each nut that the squirrel head-butts will start to crack and yield valuable points.

Once you crack open a nut, your squirrel can eat it and get more points. But hurry up! You have only 120 seconds to achieve the best score. Good luck!

Kindle Fire Release Rumors, and What is More Likely to Happen

There is a major rumor going around that six different Kindle Fire models will be released next week.  The six models may include different screen sizes, resolutions, and who knows what else. These rumors are coming from reputable sources, but no one will truly know what is going to happen until the tablet is actually released.

If that does happen, it will most likely be a 7″ updated Kindle Fire, and a 10″ tablet to compete with the iPad.  These two will possibly have 3G and wi-fi options.  The current model only has wi-fi.  Then a refurbished first generation Kindle Fire will be available at a discounted price until supplies run out.

So the focus will more likely be just two different kinds of tablets that have different connectivity offerings.  That is similar to the set up Amazon currently has with their e-ink Kindle models.

Both 7″ and 10″ models have some heavy competition from the Nexus 7, and of course, the iPad.  Amazon’s advantage will be the books and apps because there are so many of them.  I’m sure they’ll also come out ahead with the price.  In addition to these features, the Kindle Fire will need to include a camera and an updated display to remain competitive.  It makes my head spin to think about the cutthroat competition going on out in the tablet market.

One thing I’d like to see for the 10″ Kindle Fire, if released, is a keyboard. The biggest frustration I’ve had with my iPad is the inability to do more heavy duty computing.  A lot of this comes from the lack of a fully integrated keyboard.  An example of one is the soon to be released Microsoft Surface tablet.  It comes with a smart cover that houses the keyboard.  If Amazon can pull this off plus debut at a price to beat, they can pull some potential iPad consumers towards the Kindle Fire.

So, we’ll see what happens.  This holiday season’s going to be jam packed with tablet options.  That’s for sure.
