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.

Changes With Your Netflix

0111

Yup ! some changes with Netflix and good ones it looks like from her to me.    For those who are using Netflix and loving it, I’m sure you would notice that selecting the movies or tv shows from Netflix can be a real pain.  If you feel that way, you will welcome the new change whereby , the thumbnails are bigger in its own section and it will instantly expand the movies and shows to see its details.  You also can get a short preview of what you are about to watch.  The design is supposed to be a lot sleeker as well as faster.

Father’s Day Gift

June 21 is Father’s Day this year , and instead of waiting for the last minute to get something for the spouse, this year, I’ve decided that we want to get something special for the spouse.  To tell him how important he is to us and that we appreciate everything he has done for us thus far.

We know that he would love anyone of this  Epi  limited editions, and since it’s 40% off right now, we are getting one for him for Father’s Day.  I’m sure he would feel really bad , he didn’t get a lot for me for Mother’s day now . haha!  I will be recording his reaction when he opens up his Father’s day present this year and put it up for viewing .  Yes, I’m “evil” hhahaha!

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.

Geek Subscription

cats

Yup ! you heard me right Geek friends !  a geeky subscription for all you  geeks out there.  LootCrate !  woohoo!  here I come, I can’t wait to try it out.  How can anyone who calls themselves geeks or nerds not loved a box of geek and gamer gear ?????  It’s like not having to think about what to buy for the month to treat yourself, you have someone choose and send you a surprise box every month for just $29.95.  Not expensive at all , if you see what you can get every month.

The actual retail value is said to be $40 and you get a chance to win a Mega Crate worth $2000 when you subscribed.  But you can choose to do a 1 month subscription or a 3 months for $28 and 6 months for $27 and a year for $26 I think.  Yours truly is signing up for 3 months of course , just to try it out.  Can’t wait to show you what I get next month and yes, they do ship to Canada ! woot ! woot!

Grooming The Geek

01

The spouse is quite the geek , in terms of looks and dressing.  He doesn’t really bother about how he looks as long as he is clean.  So with a birthday coming up really soon , what do one get for him?  I get him this aftershave that I know he uses all the time , but this year, I decided to look  for pinaud after shave  because I’ve heard good things about it.   Grooming the geek isn’t easy, but someone has to do it.

XiaoYi Sports Camera

01

So what is the difference between this Xiaomi Xiaoyi Sports Camera and a Go – Pro ?  first the pricing of course.  Costing as little as $87 USD from various sites, you can even get free shipping depending on where you are .  Weighing only 72 grams, wifi capable, takes about 7 photos/sec and water proof with a special case.  And most importantly , easy to mount , so you can bring it on your hiking trips or mount it on your pets for fun.  It can also take wide angle pictures and videos and you can then download it directly from the cam because it has got free wi-fi connectivity.   A longer battery life for the Xiao Yi Sports camera because it doesn’t need a lot of power.

If I were traveling to a scenic place or someone who is into biking, hiking or even walking trails, I would definitely get the XiaoYi sports camera.  It’s not too expensive for a presenet for your kids either.
