Amazon Echo

For months now I have read great raves about the Amazon Echo and the more I read the more I want to get one. But I don’t think I am crazy enough to blow my salary for a $179 tech that is in its first generation but we will see. I posted videos below to give you an idea what are the things it can do and the things that need improvements.

It uses voice command just like Apple’s Siri or Window’s Cortana. The name is Alexa which sounds a bit porny for you dirty minds! It is recommended for those who have embraced home automation and would love this technology to do their daily tasks.

My Friend Alex Pardini Has a Cool Music Studio

Alex Pardini is one of the coolest dudes in the planet. He created the header for my blog http://spheremusic.me as a gift. Since then our friendship grew and one day I will come visit him in Switzerland. How cool is that?!

Apart from being a singer-songwriter, he is also a photographer, sports enthusiast and label owner. This is how his studio looks like:

Just a little insight. That’s how it looks and sounds in my studio these days.
As far as I remember I used the Elektron RYTM, Korg Volca Bass and Yamaha An1x (amongst other gear) for the track.-Alex Pardini.

Yes, that’s his music in the background. And he is also good looking! 😉

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!

Macbook Air 11 is the best blogging laptop!

IMG_1271 - Version 2

I got my Macbook air two days ago and I am ‘practicing.’ It looks like things got easier with this laptop. I was using a 15-inch Dell Inspiron which is heavy and without back lighting. This one makes typing a breeze. It is also light. I love how I can just take it anywhere. In fact, it has replaced my iPad 4! That iPad 4 has a great retina screen. But it is not easy to the hands especially when you are reading an e-book. This Macbook air can just sit on my tummy while I watch a movie or chat. It has great battery so I can last hours and hours with regular use.

This sexy beast has made my hobbies easier. So expect more blogs from me!

Specs:

Processor – 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory – 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Graphic – Intel HD Graphics 5000
