Avengers Wallpapers Series: Simple, Minimal, HD

This collection of wallpapers is inspired by that itty-bitty summer movie that no one’s heard of – Avengers: Age of Ultron. I’m sure you haven’t seen it yet, right?
Minimalistic Avengers HD Wallpapers for desktop and mobile devices

// 5 Color Choices
To keep the focus on bold, branded imagery, the design scheme of my Avengers Wallpaper Series is minimalistic and flat (flat: as in no gradients, no drop shadows, no crappy nonsense).

Your color choices include black with white logo, white with black logo, black with red logo (inspired by Iron Man & Thor), black with green logo (inspired by the Hulk… duh), and black with purple logo (inspired by Hawkeye). If you’d like a custom color, please post a comment below and I’ll see what I can do.

// Dimension & Definition
Each wallpaper is sized at 1920×1200 pixels which scales to fit most laptops, desktop computers, tablets and smart phones. For devices of different dimensions, such as the iPhone, your device will auto-crop or fit the wallpaper to your screen.  Every wallpaper is pixel perfect, high-resolution (HD), xxxhdpi and retina ready ~ they’ll look stunning on your Mac OSX, Windows, ChromeOS, Android, Speak & Spell, iOS, or Linux screens!

// To Download
Simply click on the wallpaper color that you like.  Then right click, and choose “Save As”, then save the .png image to your computer.  Download as many as you’d like.  Easy as pecan pie!

Legalese: The Avengers logo is the sole copyright of Marvel. I don’t own it (sure would be nice if I did. Ha!). I just wanted to create a few pieces to support one of my favorite movie series of all time. Oh and I adore Iron Man (He’s a snarky uber-geek! What’s not to love?!?). These wallpapers are for personal use only!

2015 #AprilFoolsDay – Best of the Web

Did you know???

  • The earliest recorded mention of April Fools’ Day, way back in 1392, is in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales?
  • In 1957, the BBC aired a television show about farmers harvesting freshly grown spaghetti. The network was then bombarded with letters from viewers asking how they could purchase their very own spaghetti plant!
  • BBC struck again in 2008 when they aired an elaborate video documenting the discovery of flying penguins.

These days April Fools pranks are even more elaborate and widespread thanks to our BFF – The Internet. Over the past decade, Google has continued to raise the bar on jokes & pranks (some of their “pranks” have become actual products – ah hem, Gmail’s 1GB+ of storage space!). Each year more companies, such as ThinkGeek, Virgin America, and Netflix, join the fun.

So let’s nix the dilly-dallying, tip over this barrel of monkeys, and see what’s funny enough to send snizzlebiscuits & sweet tea flying out your nose…

Pac Man Fever

Fire up Google Maps either in your browser or Android or iOS and search for Arc de Triomphe… Zoom in a bit. Tap the Pac Man button. Run from Ghosts. Rinse and repeat.  Check out Google’s hints for more locales to munch ghosts, strawberries, and ubiquitous dots.
