Speaking from where I live at (and my social circles), Smart Watch isn’t a trend. It’s more like a white noise going around and none of us actually pays attention to it. Even me, although it’s because I’m a supporter of the analogue watch. So when one of my friend brought along this box there asking for… Continue reading iradish Smart Watch and Phone: Features and Review
Okay, I might have exaggerated things a little, but the picture itself is true and real. Damned box is labelled Chinese characters, but it is the (nearly) literal translation of iradish, though calling it “digital carrot” would better hit the mark. By means of a friend, I’ve managed to acquire the little gadget in that aforementioned… Continue reading Preview for Something
Alluding to the title, I had been quaffing down pints of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files enough to be drunk for months. Fifteen Books in less than two months of exam, holiday and internship.

I was going to write a Nexus 5 review anyway, and this problem kinda prompts me into more urgency. It’s just 2 months old, and e-book reading is so simple even my old phone can manage it without any fuss. It doesn’t help that I’m now at my busiest weeks and a faulty phone I realised I’m relying to heavily on is affecting my mood and productivity.
