Is there such a thing these days? I think peer pressure extends beyond school and colleges where you just go with the flow and do whatever the cool crowd does.
Take into consideration the smartphone battleground these days. In one corner are the iphone boys, and in the other corner are the android fellas. Then in the secluded corner are the WindowsPhone and Blackberry guys. Instead of just getting a phone which fits their budget and how they use their smartphones, they go for who people are talking about.
Which is why in the secluded corner, the Windows Phone and Blackberry guys are happily using their phones while the android and iphone fanboys hurl facts and make believe facts at each other.
It just plain and simple, get the one you like.
Each of the smartphone platforms have their own plus points, and their equal share of negatives. So why bother comparing? Is apple or Google actually paying you to defend them? Do they actually GIVE you a phone or phones? Do you get special treatment and do not have to queue up for hours to BUY your dream phone?
Anyways, having said all that, please do keep it up you guys. Your actions actually pushes the smartphone companies to up their ante and try to out do each other. The one who benefit are actually us, the consumers.
So, I would like to firstly apologise for kutuk-ing you, and then follow up with a big thank you. It’s because of you guys that people like me who use all kinds of phones of all platforms who really benefit from it all
And here’s a totally unrelated photo

It’s a very pleasant phone to use. The user interface is rather … how would I put it… soothing. Seriously. The colors, brightness and animation is a joy to experience.
Recently Nokia introduced to the world their range of new phones powered by WindowsPhone8.

The new WindowsPhone 8 tiles seems to be a bit more cluttered, but apparently is more customisable compared to the previous versions.
But they simply must pull their socks up when it comes to messaging. I mean, as I mentioned previously, messaging apps like whatsapp and viber are a pain to use with WindowsPhone 7.5 as they are extremely slow. Like it’s loading message history online.. and on the fly. Let’s hope they have addressed it in WP8.
Oh.. and Nokia introduced the wireless charging. Hmm… interesting.

Oh.. and apparently, as you can see in the pic above, they have done away with the annoying “press to open” flap to access the micro usb port. I had to be extra careful not to snap that flap off each time I wanna charge or sync my phone.
Anyways.. This month is an exciting month indeed. Many new phones, tablets and camera being announced.
Oh joy!!! but not so joyous for my wallet :S

A very quick thought about the Nokia Lumia 800. Physically, I love it. It fits nicely in my hands. And it fits snugly in my car’s cup holders, with a nice clear view of the sky for the Nokia Drive to work. Wonderful. Too bad the implementation of Whatsapp (which I use a lot) is a bit wonky. Well, wonky for me at least. Maybe it’s who windowsphone works. But it’s a bit too slow for me. You see, each time I want to see a new message, the app seems to launch and then only load the messages. It’s like a website. You know? It loads only when I go to the website url. But all in all, it’s still a very nice phone to use. I still like it It’s just so nice to interact with the phone..
Anyways.. another quick thought which hit me a couple of days back…. brand loyalty. Personally I think it’s quite stupid. Some people take it to the extend when it becomes fanboism. You know, when everything that particular brand makes or does, it’s the bestest of the bestest of the bestest.. and nothing else can stand before it. THOU SHALT KNEEL BEFORE THY GOD OF PRODUCTS!!! Bah!! I mean, if they actually pay you, then it’s a different matter altogether. I would go fanatical and wear Nokia t-shirts and caps and drive around in the Toyota Prius (which Nokia gave me) with Nokia decals and logo, brag and evangelize about the coming of the new Nokia with WindowsPhone8 and post all things Nokia on my social networks.. and defend Nokia against blasphemy and the untruth … if Nokia paid me enough….
*hello?* Nokia… ? No?
ok then… next…
Again… a blog without photos.. hmm…
oh..i went to Bangkok last month. Did not take any photos. In fact, did not even bring a camera along with me. Just enjoy the trip. But good thing I brought along my mobile phone (non-brand specific.. for the fear of being labelled a fanboy)… here’s the highlight of my trip there..
Tilapia fish.. rubbed with salt.. then grilled over charcoal. Very nice when washed down with ice cold Chang beer. Tip : Get it from the streets. This particular vendor sold each fish for THB100. The restaurant just down the street? THB350. Chang big bottle at 7-11.. THB44. nice!!
And yet another different note… Burger Bakar. Fuh.. wonderful. Home made beef patty, perfectly grilled over charcoal.
Alright… very random indeed.
Will update blog more often…
hmm.. i tend to say that a lot… “will update more often”… hopefully lar hoh.
