I Just Want My Freakin’ Ice!

Since 2017, our Samsung french door refrigerator, model RF28K9380SR, has been working well. And then there’s now where our ice maker don’t make ice. Taking out the ice bin, you can see that the ice maker is frozen over (does this prelude a White Walker victory in Game of Thrones?). Looking online, Samsung refrigerators are […]

Stricter Apple Pay?

Was it the macOS 10.14.4 update that has made password security much tougher for the end user? Whenever Safari’s autofill attempts to fill out a form, I’m not prompted to provide a fingerprint or enter a password. Previously, the autofill did its magic. From a security standpoint, this is probably better, but when you’re in […]

My Relationship with Nordstorm Is Strange

This post’s title says it all. I’ve said good things about Nordstrom, but I’ve shared mostly bad experiences shopping online. Why you ask? Because this customer service-centric company does stuff like this. They cancel two of my online orders due to lack of stock. Yet, what did I see while poking around men’s shoes this […]

Pali Highway Closure Memories

By now, Windward residents are too familiar with the closure of the Pali Highway and its impact on traffic. Tuesday (the first day of the closure) was a commuter’s nightmare as expected. Leaving home at 6:00, I didn’t get to Honolulu until around 7:40, driving through Waimanalo and Hawaii Kai. For the drive home, I […]

Eastbay Playing Games?

First time ordering through Eastbay today, and I went on a short roller coaster ride. Adding shoes to my cart was fast but checking out was puzzling. Where is the button/link to review and submit the actual order? It’s not there. 🙁   After trying all over again, I get this while checking out. Since […]

Nordstrom Online Continues to Disappoint

What else can I say other than I’ve been let down by Nordstrom online again… and again. Twice in the same day. I had placed two early orders for pre-release products – one in January and one in February. Yesterday, I received two emails that both orders had been cancelled due to item unavailability. Supposedly […]

Adidas Boost Back at Nordstrom Rack

In December, I had come across lots of Adidas Boost shoes (including the Parley version of the UltraBoost ST) at Nordstrom Rack. Well, the Boost is back at The Rack. Here’s what I came across this past week. Sorry, I don’t have the prices, but they were hovering right at $100, except for the Reigning […]

Adidas Parley, Priced Too High?

Adidas and Parley have a partnership that takes plastic before it enters the earth’s oceans and transforms it into thread. This recycled thread is then woven into some Adidas shoe lines with the signature ocean blue color way. While it’s a great and worthy idea, Parley models go for a higher cost, usually adding a […]

Siri on my Apple Watch Told Me I Overate

How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Hope you ate and shop well. I must have eaten very well based on what AI-entity Siri told me via my first generation Apple Watch. Simply put, I overstuffed myself and my watch. See the face of the Apple Watch separating from the body? Yup, a sure sign of overstuffing. […]

My HomePod Pulled a Kyrie Irving

I guess my Apple HomePod doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving either like Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. Instead of happily playing music to prepare Thanksgiving meals, my HomePod refused to listen to any commands. Had to reset the HomePod and now it’s behaving once again. Or perhaps SkyNet is becoming sentient. Happy Thanksgiving!

Call Me Mr. Roboto

Secret, secret, I’ve got a secret. I couldn’t get the Union Jordans today since the site thought I was a bot. All I can say is “I’m not a robot without emotions, I’m not what you see.” I think I did manage to get every since error code on the site though.
