Geeks Into Trumpets

book

Yes, lately I’ve noticed that most of my geeky and nerdy friends are quite talented.  Not only are they great with the computer, coding and on top of all new gadgets and games , they are musically inclined too.  I had the pleasure of being entertained by a group of nerdy friends who play the trumpet , of course they didn’t use  trumpets for professionals  but I think they are the above average trumpet players.  You will be surprised with some geeky friends of yours because their talents are not limited to just nerdy and geeky stuff as I found out.

Lily Camera

Very interesting right?  and if you order before June 15th, you can get it for only $499 and you will only get it in  February 2016, when they start shipping them out.  So what does the Lily Camera do you asked ?  To put it simply, it’s a flying camera.  But how does it work without a remote control you asked?  I was curious too – so I went on to read it a bit more.

So I found out that it follows the wearer’s bracelet – so if you are wearing the bracelet for the drone – Lily in this case, it will follow you wherever you go.  Pretty simple eh ?  especially great for those who wants to shoot outdoor activities or even a promotional video for a canoeing trip or rafting trip since it is waterproof , so I read.

book

As you can see here, the tracker or a GPS in the bracelet is worn by whoever is controlling Lily and it just follows you wherever you go and video tape you immediately.  Your kids can use it, you can use it and professionals can use it as well.  But don’t wait to long to pre-order yours if you are into this video taping thing or an outdoor person , because after the pre-order time is up , it will be going for $999.

Someone asked me if they can buy a Lily and spy on their neighbor or boyfriends?  hahah!  that’s funny !  but truthfully, you have to be there to be filmed because you need to be wearing that GPS bracelet remember?  so yes, it’s very legal according to the inventor of Lily.

Lei Jun Needs To Learn Better English

Seriously, I feel bad for the chinaman !  but mannnn!!  Xiaomi CEO really needs some tutoring in his English before making his next speech please !  Quite embarrassing if you’ve heard his original speech.  Loved the Xiaomi products and eager to try it out but the launch wasn’t that impressive if you asked me.

Illegal Down-loaders Beware

01

I just read that folks in Singapore who’ve downloaded the movie Dallas Buyers Club are in trouble of copyright infringement and that the people who owns the movie are going after illegal downloaders.  A bit surprised that they are doing it to the people in Singapore about 500 of them , forcing internet companies in Singapore to give out the subscribers information.

Why surprised ?  because the downloading problem seems to be even higher here in the West than the East , so why start with Singapore?  You and I know that it’s illegal to download anything illegally but it had been going on for decades now and even with shutting down sites like Pirate Bay hasn’t stopped people from downloading illegally.

So what is going to happen from here on if you are one that received the “letter”  from  Dallas Buyers Club LLC?  Don’t panic yet, because to sue you they would have to prove that you’ve infringed their property rights and it isn’t going to be easy.  I think movie owners of Dallas Buyers Club is trying to bully these 500 people to pay up, so go seek legal advice from a lawyer, preferably an infringement rights lawyer.

Play Store Apps To Be Reviewed First

01

A customer was in the other day and asked if the spouse can fix her virus on her cell phone .  I was taken aback because I didn’t know that cell phones can get viruses in which the spouse replied that if it was an android , then yes.  Something new I learned everyday as you can see, so I was glad to read that Google is going to review all the apps that are to be uploaded for its users , to further protect them against malware and viruses.

Android apps will now be governed by the people who classed video games like GTA V, therefore, you can check if the app is appropriate for your kids to download.  Gone are the days where developers can submit whatever they fancy.  I liked it better this way.

Convention Events

 cats1

The spouse and I attended a recent convention event  in the city as a sponsor.  Since we were given a table during the convention to sell our goods, we found some  fitted tablecloths from here  to make our display table look nice and presentable.   And I wished that everyone had some kind of fitted tablecloths for their table because some just put all their goods on the plain table making some tables looked so plain and in fact quite ugly.

Everyone had asked where we had gotten our tablecloths and wished they had some too but we only bought one for ourselves , now had we known that others would like some I would have ordered more online.  Unfortunately, most convention event organizers do not provide anything except tables and chairs for the convention and the rest is up to you to dress up your display.

Customize Your Burger

cats

 Yup!  you heard me right, in Australia’s MacDonald , they are having a trial version of customize burger to your taste buds and looking at a youtube video they had provided, it seems easy enough.  So on a touch screen computer, you just touch and away you go with your burger and choose whatever you want to eat.  And at the end of everything, you can even choose where you are going to sit because they serve you the burger to your table.  Pretty cool right?

Create Your Taste’ menu is available only at Castle Hill restaurant in western Sydney but fret not because in the coming months, it will be all over Australia. Now when will this come to USA and Canada, I wouldn’t know.  But I’m looking forward to this new gadget/novelty of ordering your very own kind of burger.

Fried Chicken Orea Faked

cats

Did you really fall for it?  Ahhh..!!  good old internet !!  all the things that people can come up with.  While some people may like fried chicken alot I can’t see Oreo making it and putting it on the shelf.  And yes, it’s confirmed that it’s fake , so no worries , no clogging of anyone’s arteries.

iPhone 6

cats

Surprise ! surprise!  well  not really!  how could you be surprised that Apple will have another model of the iPhones out soon.  But yes, you read right, the rumors has it that the iPhone 6 will be released this year even though we all expected it much earlier like in 2013.  It is also rumored that the screen would be bigger – now that is a plus because I switched to a Samsung just because of that.

I’m also hoping the the iPhone 6 will be lighter than all the other models.  I’m also hoping that Apple will make different color iPhone as compared to the usual black and white and a gold in Asia.  As for the iPhone prices, well, one can expect at least $100 USD more than the previous model.  So folks, or those gadget geeks out there, start saving now.

Money Transfer With No Hidden Cost

Money transfer thru’ the banks are so expensive, you would be shocked !  because I’m married and lived in Canada, I had to do money transfer back home for my parents initially and mannn!! it cost me and my spouse like $50 each time we transfer any money back home to Asia.  Yes, it was ridiculous! it made no sense whatsoever!

 Now, you can transfer money thru’ paypal, Skype and even thru’ your gmail account to your bank – it’s just crazy! and the fee is like so minimum, you wouldn’t believed it.  Transferwise an internet transfer service makes it possible for anyone to send money from one country to another without having to pay bank fees that would make the sender a really painful experience each time they need to transfer money for business or personal uses.
