This has been one crazy year as I have been changing my gadgets like how women change their shoes and purses! I would say that in the past 6 months, almost all of my gadgets have been refreshed and a lot of it has to do with the way I work. I used to work at home and in the office more often but now I’m out in the field quite a bit so I need a lot of power (I’m talking both battery life and system performance) on the go these days. 2011 wasn’t really an impressive year, but 2012 has been a great leap for mobile tech for both work and play. This is what I have been working with recently…
I know it’s already September but was quite a lot of activity within the dates listed above. Lots of work, people had birthdays, went to Vegas for another Birthday, scored a new watch and managed to get a lot of good meals in between! Continue reading
Had a lot of changes to my desk since I did this feature. I mostly work on my iPad or my MacBook Air when I’m on the road but this is where I spend the majority of the time when I’m at home. Here’s what’s on my desk! Continue reading
Being on the road, it’s important to take the right things for the right situations. What’s equally important is the bag that you have as well. I’ve gone through different types of bags such as Targus, Tumi, Ogio, Kenneth Cole, etc but the bag that combines style, practicality, and durability for me is STM. Of course everyone is different and has different needs but their bags have worked well for me over the years and I am a frequent traveler.
Quite a few activities within these two weeks leaving me little time to update this site. I know I say that every time but it’s true! I went out for a hike in Burbank, CA, went to the Dodgers game in a VIP suite for work, and of course had great food as always. I did get an HDMI cable for the Galaxy S3 to run emulators off of it and onto the plasma TV while having it paired to a PS3 controller! Continue reading
I know I’m a bit late on my Geek Life postings as I have been busy with work and been out and about almost every single day. Even on weekends there’s always something to do especially in the city of Pasadena. Went to a wedding, then to the 626 Night Market, and then caught a show at the Pasadena Ice House featuring Jen Kober from Curb Your Enthusiasm all in one day! I hardly have any time for anime, games, and gadgets anymore!
This was a very busy week so I really didn’t have that much time to play with any new technology or gadgets but I finally did manage to upgrade my 5 year old Panasonic 42 inch plasma TV (720p) to a new Samsung 46″ LED 3DTV! Had to make a little time to review the LG Tone HBS-700 Bluetooth Stereo Headset as well. During the weekend I went and saw Batman – Dark Knight Rises, go to the Hawaiian Festival in Lawndale, catch the sunset at Manhattan Beach, and finally have Chicken and Waffles at Roscoe’s in Pasadena! Still working on remodeling my living room but that should be done next week! Continue reading
Quite a few highlights in the first few weeks of July starting from Independence Day, Anime Expo, and the release of the Samsung Galaxy S3 on the American LTE networks. Of course there were other things happening in between as well such as work, food, and life in general! I was also testing the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3 to compare how it stands up to the best phone of 2011. So far I have been embracing Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich while waiting on Apple’s next generation iPhone. So far there hasn’t been anything that impressive of iOS6 and I am more excited about Android’s JellyBean. Continue reading
I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly or bi-weekly photoblog on the exciting life of a geek (yes me) so I’m going to start with the entire month of June on how the world is seen through my eyes! I’ve had a huge overhaul in my gear over the past few months and most of it is because I’m on the road more than ever so portability is more of a priority over power. So I went from a 15″ MacBook Pro to an 11″ Air. Been pretty busy in June just barely coming back from Catalina Island and then a few weeks later headed off to San Luis Obispo. Even though it’s all within California, there was a lot of tech and gadgets to utilize, food to eat, and sites to see.
