Nike Wishlist Update 3

This wishlist update is a fast turnaround. Since I removed shoes from the list in Update 2,  of course, I need to fill those positions with other desires. Currently, the wishlist stands at: Air Max 97 VaporMax/Air VaporMax Plus ($190) Air Max 270 ($170) Odyssey React ($120) React Vapor Street Flyknit ($180) LeBron 15 Low […]

A Day of Working to Work

Sadly, today was a day of working in order to get work done. Instead of doing productive work, I had to do work that would eventually enable productive work. I completed a few mandatory online training sessions, and I filled out several justifications why I needed “non-standard” apps. Why do I need Pixelmator instead of […]

Nordstrom Redemption and Air Jordan Color-blindness

Nordstrom has redeemed itself, partially at least. Last you remember, Nordstrom cancelled my discounted order for a pair of Air Jordan 1 mid, in a shadow-like colorway (I’ve since learned that these are not THE premium Shadow AJ1 highs). They just couldn’t fulfill the order. But seeing the here-now-gone-tomorrow nature of these shoes, I persisted, […]

Deleting Bulk Email from Gmail

With thousands of unread email in Gmail, it was time to clean house. But just how do you select more than one screen worth of email at a time in Gmail? As a product from Google, I should have known better – you use search. Yup, in the Gmail search bar, you do something like […]

eBay Tip: Too New Isn’t Good

By now you know you can find completely random items at Ross. Most items are from last season or even older. But once in awhile, you find some newer items. In fact, some items are still being sold by retailers. Take these Air Jordan Trainer 2 Flyknits for example. While this model is still available […]

Lychee Monitoring at Target

First off, who knew Target stores in Hawaii sold lychee? Must be quite a few people knew since Target is now monitoring lychee sales upon checkout. Yes, Target cashiers watch how much lychee you’re buying. And don’t think you can outsmart the system by going to self check-out. The POS systems are programmed to halt […]

Trying Out Orbi’s Mesh Network

Walking the lanes of Costco, I noticed a new pack of Netgear’s Orbi wireless networking devices. Instead of the three-unit pack I had seen previously, Costco carries a two pack (one base and one satellite), and the cost is good, right under $200. While a single Wifi router has been working in my household, speeds […]

My SmartThings Experiment Is Done

I was an early adopter of SmartThings from its Kickstarter days, but my forray into SmartThings is done. My Gen 1 base unit still works but pretty much every accessory I own has stopped behaving. One motion sensor stopped responding a long time ago and the second sensor had been working then stopped. My on-off […]

eBay Tip: Pink > Roger Federer

Usually Roger Federer-logoed items sell. If you see that RF logo, odds are it’ll move on eBay. There’s one glaring exception that I’ve observed though. The color pink is greater than the great tennis player. I had found a Nike polo shirt infused with Nike tech and endorsed by Federer. But it did not sell. […]

Missed the UNIQLO Preview Event

Yeah, I’m a little disappointed that I missed out on the UNIQLO Pop-up Preview event at Ala Moana this afternoon, but… kids finishing the school year and spending the day with them was the right call. The day would have been even better if JR Smith at least hoisted up a shot after his rebound, […]
