Comic Reader Mobi

Since I finished Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle a few weeks ago, I decided to move on to one other “series” I’ve been hearing people talk about. It’s an ongoing [comic book] series called Fables and I was able to get a bunch of CBR files of 80+ issues.

Anyways, that’s not the point of this post. The point is that I bought this app 1 To be able to read said CBR files from the iTunes store which I was really skeptical about, but apparently it works flawlessly that I cannot help but blog about it. Read More

This entry and its contents are updated whenever
there’s a change in the “item” being discussed 😉

Bike/post was last updated 2009.08.26

Because the post is too long to be re-read whenever
there are updates, each section has been date-stamped
(mm.dd.yy) – so you can skip right to the recent changes.

I noticed that while I’ve been posting about my biking experiences, I’ve never taken the time to talk about my bike itself in detail. 1 I have posted about parts I was planning to buy, and some specs here and there, but nothing in-depth (plus, I hardly get to cover the little details as much as I would want to) As such, I’ve decided to consolidate all my bike’s “details” into a single entry which I can update whenever applicable. This makes it easier as I just have to just point people who ask about my setup to a single URL and know that it will be fairly current.

I also will discuss my personal journey/process of how I picked every part of my bike in context of being a newbie myself – which could be useful for anyone who’s planning to get into the sport and have the same concerns/questions that I once had.

Mavic Wintech Ultimate cyclocomputer

When was the last time I did a hardware review; my review on the Harmonic Converger (which by the way, is one of the most visited pages in my blog)? So to mix my blog contents up a bit, here’s another one.

Actually, I was prompted to make this review because when I was deciding whether or not to upgrade my old cyclocomputer (a Topeak Panoram v16), there was so little information on the one I was planning to get (a Mavic Wintech Ultimate). The pictures in the net are almost all the same, they give the user no idea whatsoever on how big the components are, how they “fit” into the bikes they’re installed in. 1 There was ONE picture, but only showing the computer itself; which was helpful, but not nearly enough.

So now, I ended up upgrading regardless. Thankfully, it was the right decision. And I’ve taken the liberty of putting up more useful pictures up so that people considering getting the computer would have more to work with during their “research.”

This will be more of a picture post than a review to give a better sense of the unit both when installed, and compared with the physical characteristics of another computer. There’s already another review out there which delves on the actual usage, so I won’t reinvent the wheel. Read More

Classy Retro Feel!

I just got my Lumix LX3 a few days ago and I’m lovin’ it! Having just purchased a Sony W120 a few weeks before, I’m sure you can think of a bunch of questions; Why upgrade? Why Panasonic? etc. etc. I’ll be discussing that as well as talk about my experience with the LX3 thus far. Read More

Agent18 Eco Shield

One of the dilemmas users of Apple products often find themselves in is how to effectively protect a product while retaining most of its aesthetics. Take for example the Macbook Pro. Lovely aluminum finish, but also very prone to oxidation issues on the wrist area. Is putting a Marware wrist rug worth the sacrifice of the laptop’s aesthetic? How ’bout an overall laptop hardcase? Only if it’s clear perhaps

This concern extends to just about any cool-looking gadget, and I found myself facing the same dilemma with regards to my iPhone. I ended up ordering an Agent18 Eco Shield, and I have to say, it’s one of the most balanced cases out there.
