2 Vistas

Yes I’m currently using 2 Vistas … one of which is good and the other one sucks so much I’m thinking of downgrading.

Garmin VistaThe one I love is my Garmin eTrex Vista GPS receiver. This vista was indispensable during my Europe trip last year. I’ll be so lost without it.

Of lately, I’ve been using a lot of it’s built in electronic compass. It accurately shows me where I’m heading and more importantly where a particular house door is facing. You see, I’ve been house hunting for myself and my uncle.

Another feature I used is the barometric altimeter. Since I’ve been checking out houses near the beach … you need to have a home with at least 15meters elevation above sea level … just to be safe.

This Vista is always with me when I’m deep in the jungle … just in case I don’t wanna wait for the stars to tell which way is north.

iPhone

iPhoneThis may not be fresh news but Apple announced their latest gadget called the iPhone during Macworld 2007 in San Francisco.

Combining the powers of an Internet enabled PDA, phone and iPod … everyone would want to get their hands on this absolute beauty. When would it be available? That would be Q4 this year and if you’re in Asia … think next year.

Think music, movies and mobilephone all in a tight OS X package. Touch sensitive screen keeps you in control like never before. Love to shoot photos? The iPhone comes with a 2 megapixel built in camera. Browsing your email and webpages would be a delight with the beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display.

The only bummer about the iPhone is it not being a 3G phone. Oh did I mention my birthday is just around the corner?

Don’t take my word for it. Check it out yourself.

It’s coming! Yes this 19th November 2006, Nintendo will launch their latest console.

Drool at it.

IBM ThinkPad explodes at LAX

IBM ThinkPad explode
Dell and Apple notebook batteries are not the only ones hit. Now an IBM ThinkPad seems to be the latest victim. It cause quite a scene at the busy LAX.

So we’re waiting for a flight in the United lounge at LAX, the flight next to ours was heading to London and in the middle of final boarding, when suddenly this guy comes running the wrong way up the jetway, pushing other boarding passengers out of the way, he quickly drops his laptop on the floor and the thing immediately flares up like a giant firework for about 15 seconds, then catches fire. About a hundred other people in the lounge jumped up and began a mix of gawking and general panic, I clearly heard a few fleeing individuals saying something about terrorists. The fire burned for a minute while everybody just stared at it, then another flare up, this one much larger than the first, drove a larger group of gawkers away. Eventually, the high intensity flaring calmed down and a larger fire kicked in, all the while letting off a thick cloud of white smoke that was slowly filling the terminal. Finally, an employee came over with a fire extinguisher and put it out of its misery.

My new toy

9 monitors to juggle your work

9 monitor rig
So you think that Bill Gates’ 3 monitor rig is cool? The guys at e-consultancy rigged up 9!

Now how’s that for efficiency? If you wanna experience multi monitor environment without extra hardware, try MaxiVista. You need to have at least 2 computers though.

Update: Bah … just noticed that pic above is a Photoshopped version of Danny Sullivan’s rig. Lame attempt. Karma removed.
