New Topcase

After five years, my laptop went in for repairs. I had separation anxiety the day I left it at the shop, but I thought it was for the best. My laptop and I have never really been apart since I got it. It’s integral to what I do for a living, and it’s also a […]

Phone Upgrade: Sony Xperia Go

Eight years after I bought my first smartphone, I finally upgraded. I had initially thought about getting a entry-to-mid-level Android phone that costs less than PHP7,000 while saving up for the iPhone 4s that I wanted. However, I realized that I won’t be able to afford that any time in the near future, so I […]

Some tech issues

With my connection out until I move and get it reactivated, I’m relying on all sorts of ways to go online. For the past week I’ve been borrowing a friend’s Globe Tattoo mifi. Recently, I’ve been able to get an unsecured wifi signal. Finally, I decided to give those mobile broadband connections a try. My […]

Reading Gone Digital

I got an Amazon Kindle Touch as a present from my godmother-aunt. I’ve long been reading ebooks instead of print books (mostly because I can download a lot really cheaply), but I’m not really mobile as I read on my laptop. Reading ebooks on the computer can be a pain. You can’t move around much […]

Canon Kiss X4 Err 01

My four month old Canon Kiss X4 (also known as Canon 550D/Rebel T2i) was getting an error when I’d shoot. It has never happened often, but now I’m seeing it often enough to worry. I fired up Google to search for people with similar problems and possible solutions. I know the fastest way to fix […]

Thank you Steve Jobs

Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and […]

Note this

I have a fondness for stationery. Notebooks, pencils, pens, even ordinary pad paper. Often I find myself wandering to the bookstore and after I looked at books, I’ll go browse the stationery section. Chances are I’d end up buying a pen, or a notebook… or both. I have more notebooks than I care to count. […]

Laptop stand

I bought a laptop stand at Royal Duty Free yesterday. It’s a metal mesh one from Rubbermaid, and it cost me US$12 (PHP 577.10 or so). At first I thought it was too big for my laptop, and if in that case, I could sell it online. But when I tried it, it fit my […]

Whew

Today was pretty busy. It wasn’t a bad day, but it was just… busy. 🙂 And since I no longer update my Project 365, this is sort of a make-up post. It’s my grandfather’s birthday. Yesterday Mama said he wasn’t feeling well, so I made it a point to call him as soon as I […]
