When I first got the first HTC Evo in June 2010, I was blown away by the massive screen size (4.3 inches) and I thought having a phone so big that it had to have it’s own kickstand was the coolest concept ever. The Evo in fact overshadowed any desire that I had to get an iPhone 4 at the time. The large screen size was great and was appreciated but there were some occasions where it was just too big to carry around. I also do a lot of international traveling and the CDMA-Only Evo 4G wasn’t that useful to take along with me when I go overseas. Now here comes the HTC Evo Design with a beautiful 4 inch qHD display, world phone capabilities, and running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Why wasn’t this baby around LAST YEAR?!
The last night of Tokyo Wako’s buy one get one free special. Of course, had the ribeye which was delicious. Always love their fried rice and the dipping sauces for the veggies and steak!
I have a pretty bad cold right now so I can’t have too much fried food and all the other unhealthy stuff that I normally eat. There’s this place called My Vegan in Pasadena, CA that makes a lot of great dishes that even non-vegan and vegetarians would appreciate. One of my favorites here is the Tom Yum Soup with slices of soy chicken (it actually TASTES like chicken!) and the flavor is just amazing. Even though I’m not sick, I would eat this at least 3 times a month and a lot of the food on their menu is fantastic as well. Fortunately, I live about five minutes from there and I’ve eaten just about EVERYTHING they have and have never been disappointed!
Been working on the new layout for the past few hours and this is what I like so far. Yes it looks like it’s been stolen right off the Apple Website but I think this looks cleaner and much improved over the previous layout. The site may be glitchy for the next few days but I’m hoping to get it all sorted out much sooner than that.
This is what it used to look like:
Had lunch at Gyu-Kaku this weekend and for $14.95, you get an all you can eat meal. Even though there are only 12 things you can get on the menu, you can’t really complain about the price and you get as much bimbimbop, and BBQ pork, beef, and chicken as you want! Click for photos! Continue reading
I really like having Sizzlers for lunch and it’s actually my favorite places to work out of. Just bring a laptop and wireless card and I can sit there for hours. It’s definitely much better than working at Starbucks because it is definitely much quieter and you get a large table for your laptop and other documents. I get claustrophobic in those coffee shops and the music they sometimes play annoys the hell out of me.
For what you can get at $9.99 during lunch (steak and salad bar), it’s a great value. The photos attached are what I usually get!!!
One thing I did notice was that pictures taken with the volume button come out upside down if they are emailed for some reason. If you view them on the iPhone or even on the desktop, they look right side up. Texting, posting on Facebook and Twitter is fine. If you notice the screenshots that I took for this review comparing the camera quality between the 4 and the 4S, they are ALL UPSIDE DOWN!!!
After doing some research online, there are people that have the same issue and the way to remedy the problem is to have the home button face to the right if you want to take photos in landscape, so it makes it kind of pointless if you want to take photos with the volume button and email them.
It’s not a hardware problem, it’s a problem with iOS i believe because using 3rd party camera apps like Camera+ doesn’t have this issue.

I was asked to do a rewrite of my first iPhone 4S review for Brighthand and it’s now posted on there. Check it out here!
I just had this integrated into my iPhone 4S review as well. Video quality at 1080P is great.
I was thinking about doing an in depth review of the new iPhone 4S but almost every publication and websites have said similar things about the iPhone 4S. On the outside, it looks no different from the iPhone 4. On the inside however, are some hardware and software upgrades that make this Apple’s phone for 2011. Every benchmark shows that it is noticeably faster than the iPhone 4. It takes sharper pictures and improved photos at night. Video recording is now at 1080p resolution and you can edit your photos natively without any third party apps thanks to iOS 5. In my opinion, the biggest selling point is Siri, the digital assistant exclusive to the iPhone 4S (although a hack is in the works in the time of this writing).
What I’m going to do is a brief rundown of the device and review on real world usage instead throwing up the charts and benchmarks…
