Really pleased that SquareEnix decided to re-release X; was super surprised to find it at the Hub media store at The Palms.

Ender’s Game, the movie

Was comparing it to the book throughout. Visually, it’s a very good adaptation; the cast, costumes, art direction, set design, VFX, etc. But IMHO, the dialogue was bad, the story didn’t really flow and the plot twist at the end wasn’t concealed well enough. – View on Path.

Samsung Gear Fit is a much better looking and restrained device than the Galaxy Gear or Gear 2 or Gear 2 Neo. But the default clock display is a UX design fail IMHO when you consider the way we wear and look at wristwatches.
Image on the right is my suggestion; a quickfix. In fact, making the best use of the vertical space, the day can be on a separate line above the date.
Samsung should correct this with a firmware update.

2013 Best of the Year

I should have posted this weeks ago. I started writing it, then I lost the text file and was too lazy to start over (writing is such a chore for me). But decided to get off my ass.

I carried last on a number of things last year though. Don’t know why. Making this list far far from being all inclusive.

A screenshot of Elementary OS Luna running on my HP 530After a system crash, (on Christmas day! Not sure what caused it; either the power cord or charging port), my reluctant ass finally installed Elementary OS Luna. It’s based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, which is an upgrade from the 10.04 I was running before. I had been following the project for a while now mostly for it’s [OS X inspired] design & simplicity focused approach.
It’s still a bit rough around the edges [the default Music app behaves rather unpredictably] and the first update after install fixes a lot of things. But this is Linux so there’s almost nothing that can’t be fixed. Plus it has an active online community.
One huge critical problem though, I can’t seem to be able to install the wi-fi driver. other than that, I’m enjoying it so far.
Update: Wi-fi is now working. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver packages via Synaptic and even breaking dpkg, all to no avail. And after a lot of Googling a one or both of these solutions made it work:

And a reboot. Yayyyy!!!

Social media vs. Social life

I’ve always been somewhat introverted, melancholic, inhibited, reserved, whatever term you wanna call it (Abeg don’t call me shy or timid). It’s origin has always seemed kinda chicken-and-egg to me: was I born this way? or was it my upbringing/habits/environment?

Getting older and being more self aware, I’ve tried (and failed, sometimes embarrassingly) to be a more outgoing person. Right now though, I’m at a point where I’m pretty content with and indifferent about it. I’ve accepted it and kinda just roll with it. It doesn’t bother me as much as it use to (say back in Uni).

But being in tech and apps and startups and these sorts of things, I have to be more aware of usage patterns of these social platforms.
You see, I thought that one of the things that would enhance an offline social life was to be less and less vested in an online one. Or to keep a very wide caveat between them.  I’m also very much interested in tech that bridges that gap.

But now, I think I’m waaaaaay off.
