What media get wrong about ‘The Fappening’ 1

What media get wrong about ‘The Fappening’

A few days ago, there it was. Candid nudeshots of lots of celebrities. It was quickly called ‘the fappening’, dubbed after a pun between ‘fapping’ (masturbating) and ‘the happening’ (a buzzword used by lots of self-important hipsters). Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, some Disney stars I don’t know; all had their private pictures leak from ‘iCloud’, Apple’s cloud-storing program. Mainstream media jumped on this opportunity to blast sites like 4chan and Reddit for spreading these images, often calling...

What I Want My Future Phone To Look Like 2

What I Want My Future Phone To Look Like

A few days ago, I wrote a post about my disappointment in the development of current high-end phones. This did get me started on thinking about what I’d want my future phone to look like. HTC, take note. For this design, I drew inspiration from my own HTC One X, the newer HTC One, and the old handlebar phones of days past. This is the result after about an hour of photoshopping. I call it the HTC On.

Is Phone Hardware Hitting The Roof? 1

Is Phone Hardware Hitting The Roof?

  I have a HTC One X, by some abbreviated to ‘HOX’, I usually refer to it as the ‘One X’. I’ve had it since the 14th of April, 2012. It is a good phone. There’ve been some issues, namely phantom touch and weak GPS signals. The former has been taken care of by RMD-ing it to tech support, while the latter doesn’t really bother me too much as it gives quite amusing Sports Tracker results. Except for the GPS,...

REVIEW: HTC One X 0

REVIEW: HTC One X

Yes, it’s here. After an awkward unboxing video and a size comparison with my HD2, it is now time for the review. I’m now a bit more familiar with this extraordinairy piece of technology, enough that I can do a review for it. Here’s the videoreview, which is sort of a (very dreadful) summary, the full review is after the jump. Man, I gotta learn how to do these things. Good thing this one doesn’t induce motion sickness like the...

Some comparison pictures between my One X and HD2 HTC’s

I picked up both my smarthphones for a comparison in size. A lot of people thought my old phone (on the left) was huge, well, wait until you get a load of the HTC One X. Moar after the jump.

I did it! I got the HTC One X! 2

I did it! I got the HTC One X!

  I finally got a new phone, and I did an unboxing video for it, because, you know, everybody does that on youtube. So I decided to hop on the bandwagon. A warning might be appropriate; you can hear my awful voice pronounce almost every English word wrong. Anyway, enjoy the video, laugh your ass off, I don’t care. I have a new phone, and it’s marvelous. I’ll stop writing now, so I can enjoy my phone some more. Sayonara.

My Desktop as of Right Now (PART DEUX) 0

My Desktop as of Right Now (PART DEUX)

Two days ago, I posted how my desktop from my computer looked like. It was calm and serene. My laptop however, didn’t had this treatment yet. But, because I had to go to my parents’ place once again, I packed my laptop with me. Out of boredom (why else?) I decided to install Rainmeter on my laptop too, but I decided to go with a much more quirky theme, a Windows 8 look-a-like theme called Omnimo. The screen looks fresh...
