Coming to Kailua: AT&T and GNC

Finally coming to Kailua is its own AT&T location. Previously, the closest location was in Kaneohe, but now Kailua residents can get serviced at the soon-to-open location near Times.

An Unicorn Kind of Day

Today was surely a day of unicorns where not one, but two proverbial unicorns made an appearance. First off, Starbucks really did launch their magical Unicorn Frappuccino today. Yup, it’s pink, purple, and blue and looks absolutely crazy! But, the taste is anything but crazy. Heck, it’s even not as sweet as it looks. Sure, there’s […]

Researching Data Plans for Japan

Staring up some research on mobile data plans while in Japan. A pocket wifi device is a very popular option and frompineapples has a rundown on vendors. Decent prices, fast speeds, lots of data capacity, but it’s a shared resource that also needs charging (or an extra battery). Global Advanced Communications and the Wifi Rental […]

Mitsubishi AC Remote Model Change and Wide Vane

So like I said, I was looking for replacement remote controls for various Mitsubishi Mr. Slim AC units. Shopping Around Shopping on eBay was scary since many of the remotes for sale showed the correct pictures but said the pictures did not exactly match the actual product. Even for a cheap $10-20, I didn’t want to […]

With some self-imposed downtime, I used this opportunity to look over my site, make some updates, and even rediscover a thing or two. Amazon Store Heh, I had forgetten that I have a store on Amazon where I highlight items mentioned here. I had strayed away from this Amazon store for awhile, trying different things, […]
