Free WoW Calendar: March 2012, the Council of Three Hammers

Finally, I got one of my new year’s wishes, a spanking World of Warcraft Calendar 2012 Edition.

March is nearing its end, so I will feature the March 2012 WoW Calendar here at menardconnect.com before it’s too late.

I don’t have an alliance toon now, but looking at the March 2012 artwork by Chris Rahn, the 3 characters seem to be the dwarven rulers from The Council of Three Hammers.

The Council of Three Hammers is the current regent rulers of Ironforge. After the Magni Bronzebeard was turned into stone/diamond after the events of Cataclysm they took over the reins of the dwarven kingdom of Azeroth.

On the left side is Muradin Bronzebeard, Magni’s brother and he represents the Bronzebeard clan. At the middle is Moira Thaurissan from the Dark Iron clan. She is Magni’s daughter, the widow of Emperor Dagran Thaurissan, and queen-regent to Fenran Thaurissan. On the left side is Falstad Wildhammer representing the Wildhammer clan. Moira and Magni rides the Ram racial mount while Falstad rides his Gryphon mount.

Will feature the previous months of this WoW Calendar (January and February 2012) soon…

Angry Birds Space Cheats and Tips: Golden Egg Location

Angry Birds Space was successfully released last March 22 for iOS, Android, Mac and PC platforms!

When Rovio announce the planned release last month , I quickly blogged about it here at menardconnect.com because I really love the Angry Birds and the Bad Piggies.

And today, Rovio tweeted that Angry Birds Space reached 10 Million downloads! Wow!!!

And because lots of people are asking me if I have some Angry Birds Space Cheats and Angry Birds Space Tips, I am sharing some Cheats and Tips for Angry Birds Space now 🙂
My Angry Birds Space Cheats for the day is about Angry Birds Space Golden Egg location.
The first Angry Birds Space Golden Egg is on Stage 1-9. Just zoom out, and the egg is in the other planet, just below the 2 Bad Piggies in orbit.

When you hit this Angry Birds Space Golden Egg, there will be some sort of a black hole opening and an animation will be started showing that the black hole and its effect to the Angry Birds. The player will be then transported to a secret level and it looks like the old classic game atari game: Space Invaders

After unlocking the Angry Birds meets Space Invaders stage, you can repeat the stage and perfect it to three stars by going to the Eggsteroid Stage in the main game menu.

Originally, I plan to blog about other Angry Birds Space Golden Egg location and screen cap in the coming days, but if you really cannot wait and  want to have more Angry Birds Space cheats, just go the following Angry Birds Space levels and stage below and look for the Golden Egg :

Level 1-20: Look for the golden egg hidden in the plants/bushes of the planet

and you will unlock the Angry Birds meets Super Mario stage.

View more Angry Birds Super Mario cheats here

Level 2-13: Zoom out and the golden egg will be in the plants/bushes of the planet below the sling shot. This Angry Birds Space Golden Egg unlocks an Angry Birds meets Breakout stage.

View more Angry Birds Breakout cheats here

Level 2-25: The golden egg is on the same planet of slingshot. Just zoom out and it is on the opposite side of the planet. This Angry Birds Space Golden Egg unlocks some Bubble game that I don’t recall the name.

Level 2-28: Angry Birds Space Golden Egg is hidden the snow just next to the arrow sign, and this golden egg unlocks another game that I cannot recall now (will update this post).

Supposedly there is another Angry Birds Space Golden Egg somewhere as the Angry Birds Space Eggsteroids stage says 18 stars (so 18 divided by 3 will be 6 stages). I will update this post when I already have the location of the 6th golden egg.

New Facebook Hoax 2012: Child with Big Bloated Stomach Photo, Facebook Will Pay One Dollar Per Share


I got another Facebook hoax for 2012 courtesy of my caring and sharing Facebook friends. The wall image

The photo of the girl/child in the new Facebook hoax has a bloated stomach, and one of the photos have a date 2010/08/28. With a promise that “Facebook will give $1 for every share to this girls family, so plz share this picture and help this girl”. Hehehe classic ?

note: images edited to protect identity of the girl

Original Text of the Facebook Hoax

PLZ read this…its very important for someone…
Its not always about being funny or making pplz laugh…we do wanna help others….so we r sharing this picture with U people….If u really care If u really wanna do something good then PLZ PLZ HELP this Girl……Facebook Will give $1 for every share it gets from this link….so PLZ if u wanna help this kid SHARE this picture and Help her…

And now, creative Facebook users have shared the Facebook hoax picture with different accompanying text.

This is another classic Sympathy and Charity Hoax similar to what I discussed in my previous post.

But this time the price of sharing has gone up (1 Dollar per share) and honestly I am worried that Facebook might run out of money soon (add *evil* laughter here).

Seriously?
I encourage my readers NOT TO RESHARE or REPOST this new Facebook hoax. Facebook will never give this amount of money just for sharing the photo; it will just annoy your friends and add up clutter to your wall and timeline.

Google Play Store: Android Market is Upgrading to Google Play?


Yup! Google is consolidating apps, music, movies and ebooks into one portal: Google Play Store.

This also will mean that Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore will be merged into one Google Play Store online.

A good and logical move imho.

I am just surprised that the update seems to be not that transparent in my droid. I opted to be notified on every updates before doing the actual update. But it seems either I messed up my settings recently or the update is really a covert one and I was just notified by my AV scanner that it did not found any malicious activity in the update.

Google positioned the cloud-based Google Play as a digital entertainment destination where users can find, enjoy and share their favorite music, movies, books and apps on the web and on your Android phone or tablet. Sounds familiar huh?
My quick check reveals that it is the same old Android Market interface:


But if I will find something interesting I will post it here at menardconnect.com.
