During the late afternoon, I cleaned up the Rat’s Nest of Cables in the living room so I decided to clean up the mess in my home office too (pictured above). This was a much more challenging project because there are a lot more devices involved with wires and cables just about everywhere. It was indeed a scary sight especially with loads of dust all over the place!!! Continue reading
This should actually be titled The Geeks Most Utilized Gadgets of 2011 but it doesn’t sound good as a headliner. To be honest, 2011 wasn’t really the year of innovation in the tech world. It was more like a year of improvement on what was innovated in 2010, such as the iPhone 4 to the 4S and just about every device getting a spec boost.
