The new Apple iPhone being trolled

23/09/2017 Leave a comment

As you probably know, Apple just launched two new iPhones recently. There was a lot of flack on this because they made one of them, the iPhone X, the most expensive iPhone to boot. So without going into details, I will just leave this here

Mixvibes Cross DJ for Android

14/12/2016 Leave a comment

I have an Android phone and tablet and both of them come with this version of Mixvibes Cross DJ. To me, it serves its purpose and serves it well. Many a time I get asked to DJ at friend’s parties and all I have is either my tablet or my phone. So I just DJ with this app, playing music and generally having a great time. This application works great and is so easy to use. And best of all, it is free! So what are you waiting for? Go to the Google Play store and download it now!

MINIX Neo x5 Android computer

13/02/2015 1 comment

Yep. Bought one of these babies a couple of days back as a birthday present for myself. Love this x5. Its pretty snappy and it is not that expensive. As a matter of fact, the old Android “thumb drive” I bought some time back would be about the same price, if converted from its US dollar price. I am quite happy with it because it is pretty zippy and it just works, right out of the box. Had to un-install some bloatware but other than that, like I said, it just works.

AKIRA 39″ smart LED TV with Android

04/10/2014 Leave a comment

It was pretty hard to get any kind of information about this unit. Ever since Toshiba first came out with TVs with Android built-in, Akira has followed suit. Yep. The Made In Singapore brand (presumably) has done it again. As for the very first Android-based TV, do not get me wrong…Toshiba may not have been the first ones to incorporate an Android computer within the TV but it is certainly the first one I came to know about. In any case, this Android TV from Akira looks pretty good and for about $600, the price just cannot be beat. The only thing I know about it, besides having Android built-in, is that it has a resolution of 1920 X 1080. That is full HD folks. It also weighs about 11 kilograms. Time to find out if this thing can be mounted on brackets. If it can, I might be getting one for my house.

Apple iPhone 6

I saw this on the Internet recently and I thought it too good not to share. Yep. Apple without Jobs is like (fill in your own cliché here). Thanks to Ron Amadeo from Arstechnica who made this. I agree with everything he said. So much for “Think Different”

Mini Android computer is dead

27/05/2014 Leave a comment

Remember sometime last year, I wrote about buying one of these Android mini computers? Well, I tried it a few days back and the thing was dead. It would not even power on. Oh well. I suppose when you pay your money, you get what you pay for.  I think I will get a new one to try out again. I kinda miss this gadget!

MK809IV mini Android computer

25/05/2014 Leave a comment

One of my colleagues bought this mini Android computer. I have a similar one I bought over a year ago but after trying this one, my old one all of a sudden feels very slow. This baby comes with a quad core chip, 8GB ROM and 2GB DDR3 RAM. I have read online that this little Android box is capable of playing videos very well, something that my old Android stick has difficulty in playing.

See that little red tab down there. I did not know what it was till I went online. Its an extendable built-in WiFi antenna and that means that wifi signals are now better, much better than the inbuilt one on my little Android box. My Android mini computer seems to have difficulties in picking up wifi and can be a real pain in the arse. And for power? Yes, it looks like it is still supplied with the flaky power supply that mine was given…5V into 2A.

Tempting indeed but for the time being, I think I will stick with mine

Yes, it needs power supply(DC 5V, 2A)
