It would be strange to spend countless hours online and have no interest in technology! Still, I have been a fan of technology since my childhood when the word “internet” was unknown for most people. Surely I love video games like everyone, but how about spending the entire day formatting a PC and tweaking its settings for better performance? For some it’s a time-consuming task, for others it’s a totally unfriendly area. For me it’s a fresh start.
Obviously I don’t spend my weekends formatting my computer! On the other hand technology has become part of our routine. Watching TV, talking to the phone, microwave cooking or driving the car are just some simple facts of our everyday life. Thus, there is always “technology” very close to us. Now, it would most probably be boring for me to discuss about a new microwave oven model! But what about a new mobile phone, or new technology used on screens? What is my opinion of the new line of TV’s and how can my smartphone help me in my business? What features made me buy it and is it reliable?

Since upgrading my Windows 7 desktop PC, I decided to go with Windows 8. The negative reviews and comments suggested I should steer away from the latest version of the Microsoft’s operating system, especially when deciding to install Windows 8 on a desktop computer with no touch-screen monitors. On the other hand, I didn’t want to setup (and buy) Windows 7 on the brand new motherboard, which is expected to last 3 to 5 years. So, I opted for a fresh install of Windows 8 on my quad monitor desktop PC. It turns out that setting up Windows 8 with...read more
My Logitech mouse is not working perfectly lately and I have decided to replace it with a new Logitech G600 mouse. The old mouse is a Logitech G500 with symptoms of the so-called “double click problem”. In brief, the mouse responds with a double-click each time you single-click. Well, maybe not every time, but I estimate half of the clicks are regarded as double-clicks. That can be disastrous and may cost dearly when playing poker or even worse when investing in my case. It’s also quite annoying when surfing the internet, highlighting...read more
One of my favorite video games has always been SimCity. The latest installment, SimCity 5 or Sim City 2013, allows players to build a gambling city, and by that I mean a city that focuses on gambling. The city’s main revenue is expected to be coming from casinos that players build. The feature is called “specialization” and it includes 5 more areas of expertise, like mining, drilling, trading, electronics and culture. As I am quite familiar with gambling in the real world, it would be fun to try my skills and actually manage an entire...read more
I pulled the trigger and bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in Christmas time. After 3 months of using the Samsung phone I am more than convinced that I made the right choice. Although the Note 2 is considered a mobile phone, I mostly use it for managing my blogs and taking care of my investments while away from office. Blogging from a friend’s house or investing in the stock market and betting on sports when travelling is now just a couple of… swipes away! The first time I came across the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phone was back in October. A...read more
