Review: The Internet’s Own Boy

Review: The Internet’s Own Boy

Aaron Swartz committed suicide on 11 January 2013 after nearly two years of being under pressure from prosecutors over his frenzy of downloading JSTOR articles in an automated fashion. During his short life of 26 years, Aaron had contributed much to the Internet. He helped to author RSS 1.0 specifications, authored the RFC for RDF+XML media type, created Markdown and drove Reddit. His role in campaigning against Stop Online Privacy Act proved to be instrumental. SOPA sought to combat Internet copyright…

Thumbfu – additive and simple Android game

Thumbfu – additive and simple Android game

Wyemun does it again. Over the weekend, he coded out a new game called Thumbfu for Android platform. The premise is simple: use your thumbs and tap on the screen to prevent the dark ninjas from touching you. Once the rage bar fills up, consecutive thumb attacks can be launched on the next unsuspecting dark ninjas. There are some achievements to be claimed as well, but frankly who cares as long as you kick some ass with your thumbs? Mindless…

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air Review

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air Review

Along with the X100 Mobile Speakers that was reviewed earlier, I received the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air for review as well. I did review keyboards from Logitech, but what is different this time is that I had an iPad Air that is accessible at home! Yay to my parents for wanting to catch up with technology? Like previous keyboards that I have reviewed, this keyboard connects to iPad Air using Bluetooth. This means that you can actually used it…

Logitech X100 Mobile Speaker Review

Logitech X100 Mobile Speaker Review

A while back, I received Logitech X100 Mobile Speaker, in cyan/green colour, for a review. The Mobile Speaker promises to deliver rocking sound that you can take anywhere. The Bluetooth speaker is ultra-light and portable. I could place it in my bag without feeling the weight. Then again, I was carrying a laptop and a netbook at the same time during the school semester. Without looking at the manual, one can easily figure out which buttons to push to connect…

Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Windows and Android

Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Windows and Android

I had the chance to receive a review set of Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Windows and Android a while back. The keyboard is designed to accompany a Windows 8 or RT tablet or an Android tablet. However, the keyboard can also be used as a wireless keyboard to almost any devices, by virtue of the Bluetooth connection. The pairing process is rather easy. The indicators at the top of the keyboard display the possible conditions of the Bluetooth keyboard and…

Food – 新天地

Food – 新天地

For the past few week ends, I have been to this cafe for dinner cum supper with my family and cousins. It is off Balestier Road in a shophouse. The food they serve is rather nice and tasty. The decor is unique, given the fact that the walls are decorated with the owner’s son’s art work. The son is only a primary school student! Anyway, if you want some Chinese food, you can try that place. The website is linked…

Japanese Drama: Atashinchi no Danshi

Japanese Drama: Atashinchi no Danshi

This Japanese show was released at the start of this year. It tells of a patch work family coming together in order to fulfill their dead (adoptive) father’s wishes, albeit reluctantly. Each episode traces the family members’ life stories, frustrations, and the evolving emotions and motivations to form a family. Starring Horikita Maki, Kaname Jun, Mukai Osamu, Okada Yoshinori, this light-hearted and yet warm comedy will bring much laughter and some tears into the eyes. Enjoy! I cannot seem to…
