Long overdue vacation incoming …

Will be out of town for a week, hopefully all enjoyable moments with my family.

Trying to lose weight lately, have been drinking too much (beer, mostly) and my belly is growing steadily.

Google Chrome, the fastest browser in the world

Started using it since it was first released, never disappointed me a bit, blazing fast and performance increases with every update.

FireFox is playing catch up so far, IE, …, forget about it. Safari, more like an alien when not on the Mac, and with Apple’s arrogance and always in denial when there is a problem, who would trust their products.

Apple, again.

Still hate the company so much, even the products are pretty good, until the iPhone 4.

The iPhone 4 is more like usual smartphones, which are medicore at best. I wanted the leak to be wrong, but it was right. Hah ! I have more hope for such an arrogant company but the product is just medicore.

I will always be in a controversy on Apple since I love it as much as my hate on it. It is innovative and it is so arrogant. I checked the MacBook time and time again, but I will not accept such a hardware at such a price, it is so heavy, but people take like it was a fashion.

Microsoft is just a dumb company doing dumb businesses, not much about hate since they are simply too stupid to be hated. I will still use their products since they are a bit more “convenient” (Rest assured, I paid for my license to use them).

Back to head gear, Sennheiser HD 380 Pro

It’s been 3 years since I sold my STAX SRS-4040 Signature System and Sennheiser HD600 w/Cardas cable. I’m back again, but am not looking for some fancy sound output, just neutral reproduction is perfectly fine since I had given up fancy audio gears and all my audio gears are Pro gears nowadays.

I am happy with the 380 so far, hopefully it gets even better after running for more hours.

The freaking HDMI port on the X360 died, damn !

Right at the moment I wanted to continue to play No More Heroes, the damn thing failed to work within 6 months and I have just played it a couple of times in these 6 months.

You have got such a shit hardware and I am not touching any MS X360 nor its games from now on. Fuck you, Microsoft!

Got my replacement Elite within a few days, ok, you won me back with your customer service.

My stance on iPhone

I’m still not convinced, although most of my (more advanced) friends were using it. I won’t like to key in stuffs that I have to look at it to not be wrong, nor I won’t like I don’t know which keys were I pressing.

I love my Nokia E71, or my slow Sony Ericssion M600i, which I will surely know which keys I have pressed.

Apart from that, the stubborn Apple corp. culture has driven me away from any of their products (except QuickTime Pro on Windows, which I happened to pay for, as a software package from Apple).

Taiwan trip 2009

Razer Mamba

Bought one recently, the packaging is very nice, the finishing of the charging dock and the mouse is┬átop notch. The shape matches very well with my hand. I like its wireless/wired dual mode capability that I don’t have to be wired when I don’t need the highest precision and lowest latency.

I’d been waiting for it to upgrade my servers (they are still running on FreeBSD 4.x). It’s here finally. Thank you very much, team FreeBSD.
