What's New in the Tech World?

Gadgets seems to be "in" these days. Mobile phones which used to be big became smaller and it has now evolved into something called the "smartphone". Smartphones varies in sizes but the latest Samsung Note 2 has a 5.5" size screen. Is it a phone or a tablet? The answer is up to ones individual perception.

What else is new .......

Is notebook computers becoming a thing in the past with the upcoming market of Tablet computers? Has been hearing so much about iOS and Android bickering and trying their best to upstage one another. Quietly, Microsoft (or maybe not so quietly) released its newest OS - Windows 8. With W8, M tries to enter the tablet market and maybe out do the previous two.

Anyone out there tried W8 yet? I recently purchased a 11.1" notebook which runs on W8. Liked it so far. Apart from its new UI, it is basically like any other Windows OS. Understand that it is based on W7 which is by far the most stable Microsoft OS to date? Is it true?

But whatever it is in the tech world out there, I believe it would benefit all of us consumers out there.

One day would come when "beam me up Scotty" is no longer from a movie but a reality. Scary but kind of looking forward to it.

.... moving on....

Haven't posted anything for a long time. Don't like posting up stuff without pictures as "they" said, "Pictures paints a thousand words." Let's move on.

My iPhone plan with DiGi ended on 2nd April 2012 after 2 long years. With that I took opportunity to jump into another plan with a spanking new phone - HTC One X. Thus I bid adieu to the good old iOS and welcomes the Android. No, I have put it wrongly. Android is not new to me as I already own a Android Tablet (see previous post). So, far I'm loving the new phone but too lazy to post up any photos of it. Please google it if you need to know what it looks like.

Another preoccupation - my new healthy hobby. Actually haven't started yet. Just got myself a folding bike. Pricey but nothing like my gadgets. makes me poorer by RM740/-. Not a big bike but just a humble 20" bike for leisure cycling around my taman. Since it is foldable, can also bring it along to other tamans to cycle. Looking forward for my daughter to grow bigger so can cycle together. The bike I got is the Raleigh Ugo. There's a story behind this - earlier I bought a similar one (as in type and NOT brand/quality) from Giant Hypermarket. Cost RM249 but the quality is very poor. A lot of things is below par. Back tyre went flat on the second day so I decided to returned it and be refunded. For replacement, that's how I got the Ugo. Being wiser, I got the Ugo from a bicycle retail shop in USJ.

Let's get fit!!!!!
