Top Back to School Gadgets 2011

One way to beat the back to school blues is to check out some of the cool high-tech gadgets that can help you get top marks this year! We’ve got the scoop on the best new back to school gadgets for 2011 right here on Kidzworld!

Waking up in the morning is never easy. But the latest Android-powered web radios make rising and shining a little easier to handle. These types of radios usually feature an alarm clock, webcam, remote control, touchscreen and more, plus access to as many as 50,000 web radio stations (translation: you can wake up to the sweet sounds of soft rock or giggle your way to the shower listening to your favorite comedy stations!).

No. 2: Touch Monitors

“Can’t touch this” doesn’t apply here. New HD touch monitors add touchscreen technology to your desktop PC and laptop. Many of these monitors offer a multi-touch feature for different applications, plus come with cool space-saving designs, like two side legs, to let you touch it just about anywhere!

No. 3: iPad Cases

This year when you walk into class, chances are you and your friends will be using your iPads to take notes and do schoolwork. If that’s the “case,” you’re gonna need the perfect case. Some of the latest designs include removable Bluetooth keyboards for easy typing on your iPad!

No. 4: Laptop Bags

No. 5: Noise-Cancelling Headphones

SOUL by LudacrisSOUL by Ludacris

If you’re searching for some peace and quiet for a study session, check out a pair of noise-cancelling headphones (we love SOUL by Ludacris!). The latest models feature powered amplification for studio-quality balance (read: deep bass and crystal-clear mids and highs), comfy over-ear design to seal in sound and block out noise and are even iPhone Ready with an in-line remote and mic so you don’t miss calls from friends!

No. 6: USB Drives

USB Drive with LanyardUSB Drive with Lanyard

Working on a group project and need to take important files with you? Try a USB drive – tiny pieces of tech heaven that can store as many as 32 GB of data, music, videos and more! Look for one that’s tough and rugged so it doesn’t get beat up in your backpack, or one that comes with a lanyard so you can keep it close at all times!

No. 7: Smash Pad

Being in school can be tough: late-night essay writing, all-day study sessions, extra-curricular activities, after-school clubs. Let out your stress in a healthy way with a customizable “smash pad” designed to take all the abuse you can dish out during a temper tantrum so that you can get rid of your pent-up anger and get back to whatever got you riled up in the first place.

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.

[Warning: Boring]     It all started on one night where I was doing a quiz on Playbuzz. They were fun, but my mom thought they were inappropriate. Searching the web, she found this site and saw it had quizzes on it. They weren't that fun, honestly. And this site? It was kidzworld. I forced her to let me make an account, and we did. No status. No bio. No mood. No picture. I swore to not go in chatroom or chat with people, because apparently they could be an old man in a basement. I nodded in agreement, saying that she could trust me. Of course, I did some quizzes and went off. That night, we went to bed of course. Now major time skip.    It's, let's say, three nights later. About midnight, and my iPod is next to me. I decided to go and check out "kids world". Clicking into "login", I guessed my password since I really forgot it. Score! Got it right. Anyways, I look around. Forums. Quizzes. Games. And then something spotted my eye.  Chatroom.  Clicking on it, I typed in these exact words.  "Hello?" And that's how my journey started. A few days later, maybe a week, I was introduced to the "boards". Clicking on it, I immediately saw the Roleplay section. Unknowing what it was, I created "Lemini The Witch" and got into an argument with someone who I will not name((*Cough* Gpc78 )). Anyways, I deleted the post. My first Roleplay I made was Crystal Heights. Noobish, stupid, horrible. But surprisingly, people joined. This is where my soon-to-be-best- friend, Ivy, entered my virtual life. And my other best friends. first message: "Are you going to post? We're waiting for you two lovebirds! ;)". Conversation continued. And continued. Our bond grew and grew, until we had reached 100 pages of private messages. 100. Pages. I couldn't believe it at first. 100 pages of messages with my soon-to-be-best-friend. As most of you know, a few months ago, I created several hundred opportunities for advanced roleplayers who were not acknowledged to go through the gates of Roleplaying Heaven. Including me. I helped them by creating the Top Ten Roleplayers, and "accidently" tagging every single advanced Roleplayer. Even Musicgenius showed up. This is a process in the soon to be made   "Roleplaying Council", which I am a part of. During this, me and Ivy were nearing 300 pages of private messages. Crystal Heights was over, but my life was going uphill, closer to opportunity. Even in real life, my hopes were flying closer to the clouds. A few months after this, my faith in the Lord started to fade. I am 10, I started to realize the true meaning of the Bible and what it's message was. I was stuck in the middle of what seemed like a tornado, being swept over to one side, but then jerked back to the other, while being hurt in the progress. I was tearing myself apart. That's went the tornado stopped. It was just rain. I was closer to finding out my true religion. And that was atheism. I felt like I had to have a religion, like something had to have created the universe. My heart was leaning towards Christianity, but my mind was going to atheism. Go with your mind, not your heart, was my instinct. Me and Ivy were nearing 500 pages of private messages. Little did we know that I would be deleting my account and coming back as Ruby Phoenix. As the days passed, my hatred for my user grew. I finally decided to message Jordan that "Please delete my account". I don't know if it was a good thing or bad mistake I did that, but it's too late now. After this,  I felt like my roleplaying creativity was fading away. My titles weren't original like my old ones. I had changed a lot.  And I mean a lot.  On Animal Jam, I was afraid of deleting a buddy. Now I do it without hesitation. I don't cry as much. Like a shell has grown around my emotions. Thanks to the internet, I've grown tougher.  A few months later, my days were, and are, gloomier. I was, and still am, always stressed about tomorrow. If I have too much work. If I can't do things right. If I mess up. If I do anything wrong. I am confused. Why am I here? Where do we go after we die? Why didn't I just continue to not exist? What is my purpose? What's my religion? So many questions for a 10 year old in my fizzing, overloading mind.    I just wanted to share this, just to.
