So many exciting announcements this week for electronics! The Sony VAIO Duo 11 is a slider tablet to be released in the fall that is very similar to the Asus EEE Slider but way more refined and packing a full power i7 processor! WOW. 1080 res on an 11 inch screen and promises of a perfect bybrid of tablet and laptop functionality suggests a very very promising product, one that certainly has put Sony back into the design lead like it used to be. Definitely happy to be a Sony fan today. I love the concept of the slider, although in practice the separate Apple Wireless keyboard and Playbook are a better combo for me, as I only bring the keyboard when I need absolute light typing experience. The tablet always is on me, and the extra weight and smaller battery from slider designs are a bit of a downfall. But still, very cool Sony. Well played. Don’t think I could justify dropping to upwards of 1200 CDN they are asking for it, but I am excited that this exists. PC makers are finally paying attention to original design again and not copying Apple. Image courtesy of the verge
Didn’t realize that Motorola was still pushing the slider keyboard Droid series(albeit this one is the Photon series). Would love to own one after falling completely in love with Android, and seeing that big giant physical keyboard is so tempting. Will wait for the BB10 device in first quarter next year though, as I don’t want to have duplicate operating systems on both my Walkman Z and phone. I like the variety of OSes I can run. But am definitely a fan of the design, just wish they would put a 720p display on it.
Natural ingredient cola and more spicy pork for lunch.
More Edo with TONS of red pepper flakes that make this look really gross.
I think I just got lazy and made something totally random with this. I don’t even know what I am eating right now haha
Waiting for my so so Vietnamese food.
Picked up an external USB soundcard that is absolutely awesome. Had some problems conflicting with iTunes for a bit, but this thing really can drive my Beyerdynamic DT1350s SOOOO well. So awesome. So much bass. So clear. Perfect.
Vietnamese from some new restaurant. Food was ok, nothign special and kind of small. Not super impressed.
I made a lot of this spicy pork dish so it was my meal like five times in a row. Milk goes down so well with it.
Sweet and spicy beef and Taiwan style green onion cake for dinner.
Ate at Wasabi with sis and bro in law to celebrate him getting his white jacket for med school. Sushi was good and the people are actually Japanese, a rarity in this city and usually an indicator that the Japanese food is actually good.
A group shot of us saying bye to O! Haven’t taken a group shot with friends in a long time. Great hanging out with some of my best buds.
Out at Sunterra with the sis and bro in law. Checking out a supermarket that is super cool but too pricey for my tastes.
This hill scares me each and every time I go up it.
The grueling runs that I thought would help me with the Spartan Race that didn’t help me enough. But they are helping me with my weight goals, so thats ok I guess.
Cramming out my thesis in Second Cup with my favorite electronics to keep my company. And an extra shot spice pumpkin latte thats now back for the fall!
