words about words


Hey! Here’s the video from my trip to PopCap Games a couple weeks ago. Not only were Ellen, John, and Brian supercool to hang out with, they loaded me and VideoMonkey up with tons of schwag… my apartment is now full of Chuzzles
 
Check out the video on Xbox.com. No, I don’t know what the hell the deal with my hair was.
 
Oh…if you don’t hear from me for a few days it’s because I’m playing ZUMA on my freaking iPOD!!!

    2 things–

    I thought you had a Mini? I remember you posting something about that. Mini=NO ZUMA FOR YOU!

    WTF is up with pic of Montana?

  2. Christa says:

    Mike, I had a mini but filled it up, so I bought a 30 gig video iPod. 🙂 Zuma, Zuma, Zuma!!! Montana is one of our fifty United States of America.

  3. Mike says:

    I KNOW THAT! But why the pic? Montana is a desolate and hateful state. Look at you, turning all mean–I think I will just *undock* my TriXie OSX widget. Take that!!!

    I think I know why-admit it TriXie, you are leaving the Xbox.com team to go work on the MS learning team writing for Encarta. Tomorrow’s blog post: "Today’s post sponsored by the letter ‘F’ and the number ’69’. Featured state: South Dakota, where something has to happen we just don’t know what."

    You should be on this list http://www.joystiq.com/2006/09/13/100-most-influential-women-in-gaming/
     
    Or at least you now have a published list for recruiting more GamerchiX. 🙂
     
    Regarding the zuma on ipod, with Apple’s new ipod versions, I may finally be willing to drop cash on one. Which ipod do you have? I’m thinking new Nano in green.

  7. Christa says:

    Aw thanks Ice. I have the 30 gig white video iPod. BUT I bought Zuma on iTunes and so far haven’t been able to load it on my ‘pod. Pissing me OFF!

  8. Rob says:

    Although it should do it automatically did you update the iPod software to 1.2? Thats what you need to have the games on there….

    Here is the deal on games on iPod to my understanding: (of course written at work, off of memory, so no guarentees, warranties, etc…)
    1.  Update to iTunes version 7.xxxx
    2.  iTunes will go through your entire library and analye for gapless playback info. (my 7k songs took a little bit…)
    3.  Restart iTunes.
    4.  Connect your iPod via USB.
    5.  Should get the pop up saying "there is new software available for your iPod"…select ‘download and update’.
    6.  Let it update your iPod and resync the changes due to gapless music.  (This took about 25 minutes for me)
    7.  At this point, I unplugged the iPod and then reconnected.  Why?  Why not!
    8.  Reconnect via USB.  Under devices, click the name of your iPod.  Rock on over to the ‘Games’ tab and check ‘sync’ settings.  And verify Zuma is on there to sync (I think there is a setting for ‘all games’).
    9.  On the iPod, it should be under Extras=>Games.
     
    You know this is karma for all the gas pumps you’ve broken. 🙂

    Ohhhh take him up on the Zuma tattoo offer Trixie!   And I hope you snagged that Zuma poster when no one was looking 🙂 
     
    Great interview!
