Sorry For Being Away For Too Long..

Just like anything else, offline life steals us just when we’re having too much fun online. We don’t know what happens next. We gain friends, we loose some..and one day those that we love simply disappear from our lives. But that’s what makes life constant-the change that no matter how we want things to be where they are, shit happens.

One day we wake up and our best friends turn to strangers/enemies. We ask how the hell these people whom we thought we know by heart suddenly start behaving like assholes and treat us like shit. But that is the game of life-constant change. And what doesn’t destroy you will only make you stronger. DON’T ever think that your enemies will never become your best pals. As the opposite has shown us, nothing is predictable.

Now for some tech update, I have been having this wonderful love affair with my JBL clip 2. It is a good bluetooth speaker to be taken anywhere because it is handy. I apologize that I could not provide my own video (blame that on not being able to prepare for this post) but I am posting a video done by a vlogger.

My personal experience after using it for months is that though the sound is decent, the battery suffers when you turn it full blast. Better bring a powerbank with you (which I have recently done) if you want hours and hours of music. It has a good sound for a small size and though I will be getting the more powerful bluetooth speakers like the Pulse or other variations, I can say this one gets the job done especially if you are not really planning to pay it full blast!

One week with my iPhone 6 plus

The iPhone 6 plus

The iPhone 6 plus

I own an iPhone 5s and so far my experience was it has an amazing camera which is good for instagram. It also has a good retina screen that really makes watching YouTube videos fun. I did productive work with that smart phone like posting short blogs and responding to emails.

Bigger is better!

The iPhone 5s is slick and classy compared to Samsung or other smart phones in the market(ewww). But let’s face it: it’s so small. Steve Jobs used to say that “who needs a bigger phone?” But that was 2007. In 2015, people use their iPhones as their secondary computers. In some countries where buying a Macbook is not an option, iPhones become their primary computing tool.

When I saw the advert for the iPhone 6 plus, I knew  that it’s the iPhone for me. So I went to the iStore and checked out the 6 before moving to the plus. The iPhone 6 is ok but it isn’t big enough. I like the gold and I think that gold and white are elegant colors. After a few minutes I decided to splurge-which was not easy as it cost me many months of salary. But I never regret the decision because after getting one, I felt fulfilled. And I tell you, please don’t laugh at me when I say that owning a Mac or the latest iPhone is almost a spiritual experience.

Power and durability.

If you want the best, then you gotta pay for it. In the end it is worth it because of its durability and design. After a week I admired the productivity it has given me. I blog, post and also chat using this new iPhone. And I listen to music all the time. I don’t mind the massive size. It is not something that gets in the way. It is not really hard to put inside my jeans pocket and it doesn’t bend! Haha.

Verdict.

There is no going back. The iPhone 5s looks and feels very small now. It is still an elegant gadget but hey, size does matter!

If you are looking for a 365 degrees sound then the Aura by Harman Kardon is the best thing for you. I was looking for ‘stuff’ when I stumbled upon this stylish speaker system. I will post the youtube review from Luke Bell below. I love its slickness. It looks like an alien ship. It is also monstrously loud!

Apple releases iOS 8.1.1!

Guess what? It’s another iOS update today. Apple’s just released iOS 8.1.1 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It promises the usual bug fixes and security updates, and Apple says the latest release should speed things up on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. These are two of the company’s raging devices. That sounds great considering that people want to hold on to their old iPhones and iPads. And you can’t blame them if they feel that iPad 2 is better to carry around due to it’s weight. There are still people who are not so fussy about having a retina display. But there are those who would raise hell at the mere sight of pixels. OK I am exaggerating here but hey you can’t really have it all. To have those hi def displays, there are compromises that should happen, which means adding battering which leads to more weight.

It will take an hour before my iPhone is done installing iOS 8.1.1 but Apple never failed me. I know this update will be good. I will let you know what happens in my next post.
