Anyone else experience a “very sleepy” iPhone after installing iOS 11? I’ve encountered at least three times that my iPhone 7 doesn’t want to wake up right away. It’s usually after I put my phone to sleep then try to wake it immediately. The screen stays black. I know the iPhone is still on since […]
Still got a working Apple AirPort Express and want to configure it using a newer macOS such as 10.12 aka Sierra? Follow these helpful instructions. The biggest gotcha is joining the correct wifi network name. For me, my reset AirPort Express was advertising a network of “Apple Network”. But if you follow steps 6 and […]
With a new Samsung refrigerator, I need to buy new water (and air?) filters.
Liking my new Yeti 20 oz tumbler that I picked up from Costco. This cup keeps hot things hot and cold drinks cold. The one thing that I’m missing is a sealable lid. It doesn’t have to be completely leakproof but being able to seal it enough so liquids don’t leak out while being schlossed […]
Preoccupied with all kinds of stuff and in my spare time, blogging has fallen in priority. Instead I’m still playing Hearthstone and getting into the Marvel series on Netflix. Thanks to the Defenders, I started watching Daredevil. I had watched the first episode when it first aired but didn’t get hooked. But after learning of […]
Today I am defeated although it started last night with the surprise release of the SNES Classic Edition. So if you recall, I had one of these pre-ordered through Walmart but this “accidental” release was cancelled. Last night Best Buy released their pre-orders, accidentally or not. I didn’t see the release in time so missed […]
The next hotspot for viral Instagram pics has to be Mauna Kea Mist inside of the Shirokiya Village Walk, Ala Moana. What’s all the fuss about? It starts with the frozen colorful balls that’s like cereal, not ice. Then you pop one in your mouth and watch the mists of Mauna Kea arise. The fun […]
Regards Dolby Atmos content, Netflix does have a few titles available for streaming. But there are other requirements for Atmos and Netflix. You need Atmos compatible audio gear. You need the appropriate Netflix streaming plan “4 Screens + Ultra HD.” This is the top tier streaming plan Netflix offers. A fast Internet connection to stream […]
So if I already have a 7.1 speaker setup with two of those speakers ceiling mounted then do I essentially have a setup ready for Dolby Atmos 5.1.2? Does it matter that the 5 traditional speakers is handled by an older soundbar, Polk Audio SurroundBar AM4055?
Looking to upgrade an all around badminton racquet, I picked up the new Yonex Voltric 5FX. Under $100 at Amazon, this racquet is head heavy (as is the Voltric line), but the overall weight is light. I’ve used the 5FX a few times, and I can tell there’s more snap and pop in my swing. […]
$7 for parking in the Waikiki Shopping Plaza. I don’t care. Cash only. I don’t care. All the other eateries in Waikiki Yokocho. I don’t care (well not yet anyways). Our server mixed up one of our dishes. I don’t care. Kinda pricey. I don’t care. All I care about is that ramen broth, specifically […]
Of course. Of course, it was too good to be true. I happened to be at the ready when Walmart announced its pre-order of the Nintendo SNES Classic Edition, and I managed to get my pre-order processed. But today, I got notified (and so did everyone else) that this SNES pre-order was a technical glitch […]
