Mobile Blogging with Keyboard

Hey, this makes mobile blogging a lot easier. I just picked up a Logitech K380 multi-device Bluetooth keyboard and paired it with my iPhone. Typing longer posts isn’t as difficult now that I don’t have to inaccurately peck away at the iPhone’s virtual keyboard. The K380 feels pretty good. The key layout seems just a […]

Street Cameras for the World Conservation Congress

Have you noticed the recently added street view cameras on Kapiolani Blvd? They’re not that big and really the signs posted on the traffic lights about these cameras are bigger than the cameras themselves.   But yes, these have been installed for the upcoming World Conservation Congress coming to Hawaii next week, potentially causing messy […]

Costco Calories

Never really noticed this in the past, but have ever tried to eat healthy at the Costco food court? While you can’t beat the cost of the hot dog/soda combo, it can’t be that good for your body. Pizza, sandwiches, sundaes – all no so healthy.  Of course, the Caesar salad is the answer. Nothing […]

Daisy Chaining DisplayPort Displays

Bye VGA, bye DVI. Got Dell UltraSharp U2515H displays that only have HDMI and DisplayPort inputs. But there’s this “weird” DisplayPort that wasn’t working for me…until I learned that it’s an ouput for DisplayPort, not an input. But why would a monitor need an output port? So you can daisy chain them. Yup, I learned […]

Commonly, this cheating takes the form of using an app or service that divulges the location of Pokemon. Instead of you […]

That’s Not Winning

Well, that was unexpected. At work, I came across a list of recent award recipients and posted the list of names on our company’s SharePoint-based intranet (like I typically do). The reaction to this list of winners though was not expected. Instead of an overall congratulatory spirit for the winners, there were questions about the visibility […]

Great Customer Support, Nike!

Wow, I was hopeful but uncertain. But sure enough, Nike pulled through with great customer service and support, approving my return of my Air Max Lunar1. Although two years old and technically right outside the defective products period, I had nothing to lose by trying a return. Nike.com purchases: Flawed shoes, apparel and gear can be […]

Black Sugar Manapua from Libby

Never Seen a Black Sugar Manapua?!?

This took me completely by surprise. Today, as I was walking around the office while eating a black sugar manapua, I had two coworkers stop me and ask what that was. They only knew of the regular pork-filled manapua aka char siu bao and had never seen the black sugar variety. What’s so surprising is […]

Discounted Aloha

I don’t know why local clothing designer Sig Zane has his items available on Nike.com, and I don’t really care. I guess Sig has collaborations with Hurley that is affiliated with Nike. While I love the designs, I wasn’t about to pay full price for the goods. Luckily, now that summer is coming to a close, this […]
