12-inch MacBook

The Real World 12″ MacBook Review for Power Users

Apple’s all-new MacBook has been reinvented in a compact 12-inch form factor that closely resembles an iPad Pro at first glance. It’s the first Mac laptop that sticks to the basics and sacrifices a few features for ultra portability. Weighing only 2.03 lbs., it’s roughly 17% lighter than an 11″ MacBook Air and 30% lighter than a 12.9″ […]

Switching Back to AMD

When it comes to computer processors, there are few options out there that aren’t AMD or Intel. That’s because together they own nearly the entire CPU market for desktops and servers. Both companies offer a wide range of models, from inexpensive desktop chips to higher end multi-core workstation and server processors. Both companies feature loyal fans […]

Airmail For iOS — Unleash Your iPhone

The iPhone Problem & The Solution: Airmail For iOS I have had an iPhone since the beginning.  I remember waiting in an unprecedented line like an idiot waiting for (what would be) the phone to end all phones.  Many may argue Samsung has done a pretty good job at bouncing back in order to grasp […]

Magic Mouse 2: Why I Love It

We’re taking the Apple Magic Mouse 2 for a spin with a review from a mouse lover (not that kind!). Pointing devices have come a long way since the one- or two-button clunkers of the 1970s and 80s. Remember the trackball craze of the mid-90s? I’m still trying to forget that phase. In comparison, the […]

My First Computer: Compaq Presario 4784

It was almost Christmas back in 1996 and all I wanted was my first computer. I was still pecking away at the keyboard, not yet able to type a full sentence without looking. What I thought was my first computer turned out to be a Brother Word Processor with a two- or three-color external screen. It wasn’t […]

My First MP3 Player: Diamond Rio PMP300

Back in the mid-to-late 90s, Diamond Multimedia was on top of its game. This hardware company produced some of the better graphics cards and sound cards of its day. It also produced one of the first portable digital music players that achieved mass production and popularity. It was also my first MP3 player, the Diamond Rio (PMP300). The Diamond […]

Medical Marijuana, Why Is It Taking So Long?

I live in Los Angeles, where you can’t drive down a street without seeing a medical marijuana dispensary.  It is just a common feature of this city and cities in California.  It is completely non intrusive, and it has a positive effect on the California economy — it is desperately needed.  My question is this: […]

My Impression Of Windows 10

I hate Windows (if my previous posts didn’t hint at this, now you know).  Windows 8 was a nightmare and I never used Windows 7.  Recently I have succumb to the truth that I need Windows for writing code in C#.  There simply isn’t a better IDE than Visual Studio Ultimate.  Being a long time […]

Sublime Text Alternatives: Meet Atom

Sublime Text Alternatives Every programmer I know loves Sublime Text, and rightfully so. Sublime Text is a brilliant text editor that aids in the efficiency of writing code through it’s beautiful syntax highlighting and multi-view interface. It is customizable, and until now there hasn’t been a strong contender to this proprietary, and pricey piece of […]
