How the Night Sight Caught My Eye

The Verge was not wrong when their review said the Night Sight “effectively lets your phone camera see in the dark. Only it doesn’t require any additional hardware or cost: Night Sight is a new camera mode for Pixel phones.” They certainly weren’t kidding. I’d rather not run the risk of diving into the nitty-gritty…

The Tragic Passing of My Favourite Fitness Tracker

I’m not much of a fitness freak but I do try to be on my feet more often and squeeze in some exercise while I’m at it. So far, I’ve done mostly swimming in the pool at my condo and the occasional jog around our neighbourhood football stadium. With the amount of time spent working…

Weekend Reads: 5 Great Gadgets For Your Next Road Trip

Photo by rawpixel.com from Pexels Have you ever thought how lucky we are to be Malaysians? I have, and it’s not just because of the wide variety of cuisines. Malaysia is home to many different races who celebrate many different festivals and thus, serve a smorgasbord of gastronomical fanfare, as far as your stomach can…

Admiring My Little Empire Aristocrat.

I fell in love with typewriters when I first saw them on Pinterest and Tumblr. I often caught myself envying the people who owned them. But I didn’t know where to get them in Malaysia. Until my husband bought one for my 30th birthday. It was a vintage model called the Antares 280. I’m not…

Photography: Monochrome and Me.

Photography has never been a hobby that I would associate myself with while growing up. In fact, I never thought I would one day be addicted to it. My family used to travel a lot and those were the times when we’d use the camera most. We shared a Kodak film camera, though the time…

Tune In To Your Audiobooks This June!

Some of you may already know this but I most certainly didn’t! Did you guys know that June 2017 is Audiobook Month? I didn’t even if I happen to have the complete works of Dale Carnegie in audio format. I just haven’t found the motivation to listen to him tell his story because audiobooks aren’t…

For The Love of Typewriters.

I have always been one to lean towards all things retro and vintage, from big things like cars to small things like accessories and costume jewellery.

Definitely #firstworldproblems.

The arrival of new smartphone models and the creation of new mobile phone gaming applications are things we cannot avoid. It happens everyday, no matter where we go, whether we like it or want to be involved or not. You can bluff yourself and say that you’re not interested. You can tell the world that…

Tech Spec: Samsung NX Mini.

. Today, I’d like to introduce the newest addition to my family — the Samsung NX Mini. Giving Up At some point in my life, I gave up photography after enduring a rough few years trying to break into the scene. I stupidly did a service for a potential client, only to have the client…

Walking Down “Memory” Lane.

Drag and Drop Dragging and dropping files into a tiny piece of technology is often a pain in the ass to me because of the amount of storage that will eventually run out when too many things have been put into it. I have various storage devices ranging from 16MB to 128GB, with each and…

Oh, ‘APP’ solutely!

Who would have thought that Waze could help so many drivers today, to locate their destinations and avoiding as much traffic congestion as possible. Whoever came up with the idea for Waze was one helluva genius (geniuses, ‘app’ arently, because it was created by Israeli trio Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai, and Amir Shinar)!…

SEO is the Future.

There are way too many abbreviations, jargon and technical terms these days, especially in the world of social media and internet marketing. And especially since social media is a big thing and many companies have their own in-house teams or have acquired the services of a specialized agency. I feel confused just listening to people…

The Dell from Hell.

When I enrolled in college, my first laptop was a Dell. And it was Hell. After a year, the laptop began to show signs of wear and tear, and the battery life started draining by the chunks on a regular basis. And I only used it for college assignments and basic web surfing. I rarely…

Hipster Joints.

Cold-Calling or Buzz-Email?

Cold-calling is common, but what the heck is ‘buzz-email‘? Urban Dictionary defines the word ‘buzz‘ as ‘anything that creates excitement or stimulus‘. Dictionary.com defines ‘buzz‘ as a ‘low, vibrating humming sound, like that of a bee, machinery, or people talking‘.

Corrupted: Man and Machine.

The word ‘corruption‘ does not just refer to a person’s personality or habit. For an individual to be corrupted, it can lead to a domino effect of causing others to be just as corrupted and the rest to be affected by the corrupted individual and his or her gang of corrupted members. It’s an inception…
