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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...
