Wireless World Of Ramsey

"For All Your Wireless Needs"

Welcome to my website

  Located at 88 East Main Street, in lovely downtown Ramsey, New Jersey is an authorized Dealer for AT&T Wireless Services. They have been in the wireless business since 1999; but their cumulative wireless experience totals over 40 years. This type of experience can only benefit their customer base. Since day # 1, the owner and staff have tried to steer clear of the stereotypical wireless dealership mentality. It has been their goal to be more of a consultant; than a salesperson. They treat “word of mouth” or “referral” business as their driving force.

Best iPhone and iPad apps of July

Posted by On July - 31 - 2014
Featured Image

We’re back with the latest and greatest iPhone and iPad apps that launched in the last month. There are some big-name games and surprising utilities to come out of the woodwork over the last 30 days. Whether you’re looking for action games or strategy games, photography apps or business apps, July had a little bit of everything.

Sit back, boot up the App Store, and get downloading.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout

The world’s premiere mobile first-person shooter has finally ditched in-app purchases. The graphics are great, there’s excellent multiplayer, and there are tons of unlockable weapons and skills. The usual tropes like killstreak rewards and achivements are baked into multiplayer, while the single-player campaign missions are peppered with gesture-based quick-time events at the particularly cinematic bits. Dig into our full Modern Combat 5 review for a look at live gameplay and get a feel for what’s new.

Modern Combat 5 is easily the best first-person shooter available on mobile.

Fates Forever

Fates Forever is a refreshing new multiplayer lane defense game in the same vein as League of Legends, Dota 2, and mobile counterparts such as Heroes of Order & Chaos. Players pick a hero and must defend against waves AI opponents battering against their defensive towers on the way to their core base, the Gyro. Those tiny Tribute enemies are really just backup for the real enemies: other human players controlling heroes just like yours. You’ve also got to push back along one of two lanes in order to take out their Gyro. Throughout a match, players level up their hero, improve abilities, and purchase gear. There’s great long-term progression for each hero you purchase access to, plus the graphics are absolutely phenomenal.

Strategy gamers would do well to try out Fates Forever.

Magic 2015

The 2015 edition of Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers launched this week. The biggest addition to this iteration of the classic fantasy card game is that now you can custom build your decks card-for-card. Previously, you would be given a core deck and would unlock additional cards to swap in through gameplay. As usual, players put on their robe and wizard’s hat in the role of an elementally-attuned planeswalker. They duel one-on-one against other interdimensional mages by summoning powerful allies, hurling spells, and wielding ancient artifacts. Five colors of spells represent different elements, each with their own play style and themes. Magic 2015 spans five planes, each with their own series of challenges, and of course online multiplayer. You can sample gameplay for free, and upgrade to the full game for $ 1.99, with additional purchases available for early access to other planes and getting extra cards.

Magic is a highly polished card game that has stood the test of time, and its latest version doesn’t disappoint.

Civilization Revolution 2

In Civilization Revolution 2 players build an empire starting with a single humble city. They then harvest the resource tiles nearby, expand their nation in science, culture, religion, and military, and achieve global dominance through warfare or diplomacy.

The refreshed Civilization Revolution features new wonders like the Red Cross and Silicon Valley, new units like the Stealth Bomber and Jet Fighter, leaders such as JFK and Churchill, and research options for Modern Warfare, Modern Medicine, Lasers, and Information Technology. To top it all off, there are going to be new scenarios, including one which is Revolutionary War-themed.

Civilization Revolution 2 is the perfect game for keen micromanagers.

The Wolf Among Us

The fifth episode and season finale of The Wolf Among Us was launched this week. It’s made by Telltale, the same folks behind The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among Us puts players in control of Bigby, a sheriff with a temper problem who also happens to be a wolf. The game takes place in Fabletown, and as you might expect, there are plenty of characters that come from some childhood story, but they’re a little more… adult than you might remember. These guys have to use magic to disguise themselves and not disturb the citizens of New York, though that’s not always easy. The game’s first episode kicks off with an encounter with the Wolf’s well-known adversary from Little Red Riding Hood, the Woodsman. It’s up to you how you handle every situation, and every decision has lasting effects on the rest of the story.

Be sure to snag the whole season of The Wolf Among Us if you’re in the mood for a dramatic, gritty, and mature game with a strong story.

There have also been reports of contacts mysteriously disappearing completely, which may require you to push them back down from iCloud again.

How to re-download contacts from iCloud to your iPhone or iPad

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on iCloud.
  3. Turn On the option for Contacts — if it’s already on, turn it off and then back on again to trigger a re-download. When asked what to do with existing contacts, choose the Delete option.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is a new endless runner by Nickelodeon that lets you play as your favorite turtle characters. You’ll have to defeat enemies on rooftops and in the streets in order to make it as far as you can before your energy meter runs out. Along the way you can play mini games, search for pizza, and collect Mutagen, the game’s form of premium currency. These are the tips, hints, and cheats we think you need to know to achieve your furthest run ever without having to spend tons of real world cash!


1. Make sure you’re collecting green orbs whenever possible

If you run out of energy, game over. As you run you’ll have to collect green orbs in order to build back up your energy while you’re running. If you have a choice between fighting an enemy or jumping over them to collect orbs, always go for the orbs.

2. Save your Mutagen for defeating enemies

Mutagen is Rooftop Run’s premium form of currency and is rather hard to come by. If you run out of energy due to getting hit or from lack of orbs, you’ll have to cough up Mutagen to continue on or you’ll have to start over. Each time you decide to continue on, the amount of Mutagen you have to cash in gets higher and higher. This is why it’s smart to use it wisely and typically save it for when you’re battling an enemy.

3. If you’re going to buy anything, buy Mutagen

If you decide you want to spend some real money in order to give yourself an edge, coins are easy to collect in-game so pass on them. Instead, buy yourself some Mutagen so you can continue on during runs when and if you need to.

4. Fill your energy meter to activate Turtle Time

If you completely fill your energy bar by collecting enough green orbs, you’ll activate Turtle Time which is a sort of bonus game. In the mini game, you’ll have the opportunity to rack up tons of coins quickly, so be sure your always aiming to fill that meter.

5. Buy Turtle Power Magnets and other boosts to give yourself an edge

The store offers lots of items for sale. One of my favorite boosts is the Turtle Power Magnet which attracts all green orbs near you so you don’t have to go after them. If you find yourself having a hard time making it past rooftop enemies, the laser bot will most likely be your best bet. Regardless what you choose, boosts aren’t terribly expensive, you can trigger them whenever you’d like, and you’re free to stock up on as many as you’d like.

6. Focus on leveling up a single turtle instead of unlocking them all

Instead of unlocking all 4 turtles, a better strategy, at least in the beginning, is to concentrate on leveling up one. This way all your coins are going to giving you the maximum amount of armor and energy as fast as possible. So pick your favorite in the beginning and stick with them for a while.

7. Increase energy and armor capacity before anything else

Increasing energy and armor means you can take more hits and go longer without having your energy meter fall. For most folks this will mean that you’ll have a better chance at getting farther without having to use Mutagen. You’ll be thankful you have the extra armor and energy when battling enemies.

8. Don’t forget to visit the garage to upgrade the Shellraiser

You’ll need to protect and upgrade your vehicle just like you upgrade your character. Increasing armor should be at the top of your todo list followed by adding better launchers. Just choose wisely when it comes to spending money on the Shellraiser and on your character.

Your Rooftop Run tips, hints, and cheats?

If you’ve been playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, what tips, hints, and cheats have you found to be helpful? Be sure to let us know in the comments, along with the length of your best run yet!

Whether you’re looking for a no-nonsense text input system or are looking for something to do transformations to big chunks of text-based data, a text editor fits the bill like nothing else. Bare Bones Software makes a terrific one called TextWrangler that ought to be a part of every discriminating Mac user’s app arsenal. What’s more, it’s absolutely free.

Text editors serve important roles that word processors do not. While Pages, Microsoft Word and others may make your text look pretty and give you powerful layout tools besides, text editors specialize in actually doing things with text.

You can certainly create and edit readable documents with text editors, but that only scratches the surface. Text editors are indispensable tools for programmers who need to write source code and want to be able to highlight the code syntax to easily see what they’re doing. System administrators depend on them to manage and edit system logs and configuration files and scripts. Anyone can use them to find and replace text, add editing and formatting, filter.

To that end, TextWrangler is chock full of useful features. It can read any file that contains plain text. It sports pattern-based search and replace — so you can look for a specific word, phrase or block of text, or you can use tokens and modifiers to find near matches to what you’re looking for.

TextWrangler’s search functionality is based on Perl Compatible Regular Expressions (PCRE), a common library for search functionality. So if you’re familiar with the Unix grep function, you can create really complex search and replace patterns that can save you hours.

Beyond editing and manipulating strings of text, TextWrangler can manipulate entire files. You can merge the contents of a file into another one, for example. TextWrangler’s support of system-level versioning makes it easy for you to track what you’re doing, and it can auto-save files. It’ll even save what you’re doing if you quit the app or need to restart your Mac.

TextWrangler is built on the same underpinnings as Bare Bones’ flagship software app, BBEdit. BBEdit costs money, though — it’s available for $ 50 from the Mac App Store. The price tag gets you a whole ton of features you don’t get with TextWrangler, especially if you’re working with web documents — BBEdit has a complete set of HTML markup and editing tools, along with a clipping system, integrated support for version control systems like Perforce and Subversion, Automator workflows, the ability to read (and write) files stored in Zip archives, and much more.

The Bottom Line

If you’re just getting started in Mac programming or Mac system administration and don’t want to spend money on an industrial-strength text editor, TextWrangler is perfect for the job. Even if you’re not a code monkey or an IT monkey, having a powerful text editor can save you a lot of time and work when it comes to searching and transforming text-based documents you might be working with.

If, for some reason, you’re averse to downloading apps from the Mac App Store, TextWrangler is also available for download directly from Bare Bones’ web site

When it comes to acquiring smaller companies, Apple has a bit of a history of trying to make it all happen as quiet as possible. Sometimes it works and other times, well it doesn’t work out so well at all and folks spill the beans on them well before Apple is ready.

In the case of BookLamp, otherwise known as ‘Pandora For Books’ it seems they might have once again had their cover blown. Although the report from TechCrunch notes it happened earlier this year, if the report is correct that secrecy has finally come to an end.


TechCrunch has learned that Apple has made another acquisition, one that it is using to boost its e-books effort and “beat Amazon at its own game.” It has bought BookLamp, a startup based out of Boise, Idaho, that developed big data-style book analytics services. A second source says Apple bought BookLamp’s employees and technology for a price that was “higher than $ 10 million, and lower than $ 15 million.”

BookLamp’s most well-known product was the Book Genome Project, a platform that let users find suggestions for books to read based on natural language analysis of other titles. BookLamp’s tech and talent could help Apple improve its iBooks service with better recommendations, search, and categorization.

At this point, the deal remains unconfirmed by Apple but TechCrunch has amassed a ton of supporting evidence to go along with the tips that it has indeed happened. The BookLamp site has been shut down, there’s offices being maintained but no one reportedly works in them. And perhaps the biggest clue, no one from the core team who was working there at the time of shutdown has changed their employer status as of yet.

Update – Apple has now confirmed the purchase to Re/Code simply stating: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans,” offering no further comment on the matter.
