Be it either from laziness or just plain stupidity, or much more likely, a combination of the two, I could never quite get the hang of solving that little thing known as the Rubik's cube.
Nope, not even after a million, billion, gazillion attempts on my part, could my itty-bitty brain quite figure out how to solve that damn thing! I could get one side matched, two sides and even three sides, but could I get all four sides matched? No....... way! It's was just so frustrating, not to mention so embarrassing, that I have taken a perpetual wow to never go near the thing again!
However, thanks to a new iPhone app called, CubeCheater, I'm now beginning to think that I might just reconsider my vow and start taking up the challenge of the Rubik cube once more, or as I call the cube - 'the automatic cursing device', because that's pretty much what I end up doing when ever I try to solve it.
As you can, see by clicking on the above YouTube video, now even a 100% certified dummy, like myself, can pretend at least to solve the bloody thing! Yep, it's now a piece a cake as you can see, and for only a modest 99 cents anyone can now take revenge on the bloody thing for all of the frustrating times that it may have made them feel stupid or frustrated in the past!And there you go, just one more reason to yet go out and buy an iPhone, if you don't already have one. Yes, it's true that CubeCheater may not exactly be the greatest app out there, but hey, if your like me, and your not smart enough or patient enough to be able to solve the Rubik cube on your own by simply using the old noggin, well, then at least you can be smart enough to use your iPhone to solve it for you!
As for me, if I ever get to solve that cursed thing I'm going to need help, be it by cheating, or otherwise, and it now looks like CubeCheater could be just the ticket that I was looking for.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Thursday, January 29, 2009
