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 […]

eBay Tip: Pass on the Nike Theas

Personally, I think the Nike Thea line for women look great, especially the Ultra Flyknit versions. I love the silhouette and the interwoven colors of the Flyknit add another dimension. But this doesn’t translate to sales on eBay. And at around $55 at Ross, the Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit costs more than average. Not […]

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 […]

Historical Heat

Although it may not seem like it, I’ve only been going to Ross regularly since the beginning of 2018. Sure, I had been going in the past but not as frequently. Looking back at some of the pics I have, I had come across some heat back in the day. Check it out starting with […]

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, […]
