Telling The Difference Between ORIGINAL and FAKE Beats Headphones

Since forever, I've always wanted some really exciting headphones. And what I mean by exciting is, headphones that block out the outside world and transport you into a whole different level of awesome music. Headphones that allow you to experience music like you've never heard before. The type that makes you think you're listening to a new version of your favorite song.

Well, I finally found that in Dr. Dre's Beats Studio headphones. However, there are so many versions of the Beats headphones that I just won't dare to buy it just in case I end up with a FAKE Beats headphone.

So, if you're like me, and you need to be educated on how to differentiate between an ORIGINAL Beats and a FAKE beats, you need to acquaint yourself with this article: How To Tell The Difference Between REAL and FAKE Beats Studio Headphones by Dr. Dre.

Basically, they tell you to check out the external packaging (back of the box), internal packaging (accessories inside, the cleaning cloth, the plastic bag), the cosmetics (battery cover, headphone color, monster logo), build and sound.




Seriously, some of the FAKE beats price are also in the "couple of hundreds", so don't be fooled by the price alone.. thinking that it's the price of an original one. So good luck! As for me, although now I know how to differentiate the original and the fake, I just have to get enough moolah to actually buy the original one! LOL!

New Phone for the Old Fogey

For a couple of years now, I have been a proud user of a non-smartphone. I have been a loyal Nokia-ist. Last Hari Raya, my younger sister decided to devoid me of my Nokia N70. :( It's a phone from way back in the early 2000s, in case you don't remember. LOL!

My sister just got fed up of not being able to "Whatsapp" or "Line" me or something or other. I guess people just don't "text" each other as they used to, huh?

Maybe she doesn't want me to be left out of the loops from the family Whatsapp group now that I have my own smartphone. You see, I was the last one to revert to using a smartphone. All my family members, including the hubs, owns either a BlackBerry, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Note or HTC.

So, in the end, despite my refusal, she bought me a new Samsung smartphone anyway. A Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. It's not top of the line or anything and even though it didn't cost her much, I think it's super sweet that she did that for me. Now, I can do practically anything I want to do on that phone.


But I gotta say, even though I have no idea about the specs of these gadgets are, I think the HTC One X is pretty snazzy. I love the Beats Audio sound. It's fitted with some really good audio interfaces, that one.

Anyways, it's not that I want to "show off" my new handphone, I just want to "show off" how much of a fabulous sister I have!! LOL!

Love you, Yiyi! :)

And Just So You Know..

Referring to my previous post, another reason that attributed to my lack of online activity is the slow dying state of my laptop. I am in denial. I don't believe it's time to say goodbye to my lappy yet.. it still has life in her. It's survived with minimal problems for 5 years now, so it can't just die on me yet. It hangs a lot and I have to send it for reformatting, I'm sure. I just hope it's not the motherboard. 'Coz you all know if it's the motherboard, then it's just time I put it to sleep for good, right? It's not like I can find any cheap motherboards and replace it on my laptop, right? Or can I? I don't know. :(

Don't tell me that on top of a new phone, I need a new laptop too. And a vacation. And some new clothes. And a hot bod. And a new pair of running shoes. And the new iPad. ;)



And the list goes on...

New Phone, Please..

I deserve a new phone.

Family and friends complain so much that I don't answer any calls or reply any messages because my phone is hardly around with me. (And when it's with me, I don't get a single call all day long). Sucks, right? Also, my phone battery is a bit zonky and I didn't realize it died on me, therefore it didn't get to remind me of my husband's birthday. *pulls hair*

I don't know how much telephone batteries cost these days.. but wouldn't it be better if said family and friends pool some money and get me an iPhone or something cool like that. I will promise you for sure with a cool phone, I'd have it with me at all times!! LOL! :D

Okay? Deal?

My Wish

Yesterday, I went out with my older sister and my daughter, Allie to Sunway Pyramid to do some minor shopping. OMG! The amount of people at Sunway.. it's like a third world country just decided to make Sunway Pyramid their new home. Seriously!

We spent almost an hour just looking for parking. I heard there was a "gadget fair" going on but upon going inside, I didn't even see anything. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised as Chinese New Year is only about 2 weeks away and people need to get their shopping done, right? I saw TONS of people at Machines.. like it was Black Friday or something. I knew that you need new clothes and new underwear to usher in the Chinese New Year.. but I didn't know you needed new gadgets too! Hehehe.

I could certainly live with a new gadget. A new phone preferably. At this point, I don't care if it's an iPhone or a Blackberry.


I just want to be able to tweet on the go.. and at the very LEAST, have Whatsapp.. Can or not? LOL! :P Hopefully someone will be kind enough on my birthday this coming May. I'm LOOKING at YOU! Yes, YOU! Whoever is reading! :P

iPod Touch, anyone?

A friend recently told me about the new 4th Generation iPod Touch and it seems like a pretty sweet deal. Apparently the new iPod touch is all kinds of fun. Now with FaceTime, Retina display, HD video recording and Game Center.

Features

  • Thinner than ever design
  • Retina display - The remarkable 960-by-640 resolution on iPod touch makes everything you see and do on it look even more incredible - like the iPhone 4
  • HD video recording - iPod touch lets you record, edit, and share stunning HD video. And because it's always with you, you'll never miss a great video op
  • A4 Processor - offers even more exciting gaming
  • Genius Mixes
  • Plays 15 hours of music on one charge
  • FaceTime - brings video calling to iPod touch. So now you can see your friends and talk to them

I know I don't plan on buying the iPhone 4, simply because I want a Blackberry and an iPad. But this iPod Touch is really tempting... Or should I just wait until I can afford an iPad? Now I can't get the thought out of my mind, "buy ipod touch, buy ipod touch, buy ipod touch" out of my head. Hehehehee..

Great Innovation!

I'm so thankful for the innovation of digital tv recorders, I truly am. Nowadays, there's no excuse that you didn't get to catch your show.. especially live tv shows. Only downside I think is the fact that most stations won't record it as viewer ratings and that might end up getting your favorite show canceled if everyone decides to just skip watching and recording...

Xtensor Gamer Hand Exerciser

I know many of you out there spend the bulk of your time online... and if you're not online, you might be out there pulling all nighters trying to finish your gameplay session. Am I right? Or am I right? Whether you're at the office, or back home or out and about, most of you who are reading this article are technologically inclined freaks of nature! No need to be ashamed, because yours truly here, is guilty as charged.

Anyways, due to the repetitive gripping and squeezing on your game controller or mouse, you might have high chances at risking yourself to hand injuries, or rheumatism problems like carpal tunnel syndrome. Before you know it, downing glucosamine hcl supplements would be a daily ritual.


Which is why, the Xtensor Gamer Hand Exerciser was created by geeks who think for fellow geeks, to balance strength and flexibility of the hands and fingers. Besides that, flexing with the Xtensor between gaming sessions will make your reaction-times much quicker, and will mean no cramping hands after all-night fragging sessions.



The Xtensor is also the only product on the market to perform with true bio-mechanical correctness. Retailing at only $39.99, it's a steal! Check it out more, here.

Photographeeks!

My late father was a photography enthusiast and as long as I can remember, he always had a camera with him. From my uncle and aunt's story, even though they were poor, they always had a camera.

My sister, Syura (my father's protegee since she was a pre-teen) and my older brother, Tadzief, has inherited my father's talents as well as all his photography stuff. There are like 3 old SLRs with all sorts of lens at home that only those two know how to fiddle around with.



I can safely say though, that the photography gene has certainly bypassed me and my oldest brother. Totally skipped us! I can handle our Polaroid just fine, though! LOL!

Other than that, I suck at cameras and photography. I even once thought that the epson tm-t88iv receipt printer was a mini digital photo printer. Yes, I'm a big dodo when it comes to this subject.





However, it does look like Buddy and Allie have a knack for it, though..

Full To The Brim

I am running out of space on my laptop. Like seriously running out of space. I have yet to get myself an external hard drive because I was hoping that my bro would get one for me! setan

But while I am not back in my hometown yet to harass my brother into getting me one, I am getting pretty antsy here. I'm even thinking of just storing some of my files via online backup so I can have space for new stuff.

I mean it's high time I got one already. Ever since I got my lappy in 2007, I have finally almost maxed out on its 250GB space. Actually it's a wonder how I've managed it this long without running out of space SOONER.

Thankfully, GG here is behaving well.. I haven't had any problems with her, but I don't wanna speak too soon. gigitjari

Hunting For A New TV

My husband and I were checking out a couple of flat screen TVs the other day and it's becoming much much affordable since the plasma and LCD tvs first came out! Nowadays, you can get a 42" LCD TV for less than RM3k. Unbelievable! The TV that we're using now is basically "on loan" from a dear dear friend who has just bought a brand new one that he's allowing us to use his old one since it'll just end up in his store room.

Even though he's not in a hurry to get it back, it still doesn't feel right. Oh and getting a new tv gives me an excuse to check out (and buy!) one of those tv stands just like the ones at StandsAndMounts.com.

So maybe I'll just drag my other half to go TV hunting on his next off day! Can't wait!!

I'm Home!

Hey guys!! I'm finally able to get online after arriving here in KK on Tuesday... I'm planning to get my family hooked up on Wimax over here but I don't know whether it's available at our location or not.. It's been pure torture without having access to my online activities..

I miss my online gang and my Twitter and my 4 blogs! Hahahhaa.. but I have to say.. I'm really glad to be back home. I wish I could stay longer but unfortunately it's gonna be just a short trip. Will be back in KL on Wednesday.

Since arriving back home, I've been eating fresh seafood all the time, and it really makes me realize what I've been missing. The seafood here is just sooooo ridiculously fresh and fantastic.. not to mention cheap!! :) The kids are having fun.. Buddy has been playing with my brother's PS3 all day long until I just had to lure him with a doughnut to stop playing!!

And I'm trying to take pics of what I've been doing here but my camera is all whacked up after Allie poured water directly onto it.. But I did borrow my brother's camera. He taught me how to use his DSLR but all I've managed to capture are pics of the kids.



The kids are excited at having so many things to play and touch that they've even forgotten that I exist it seems!

Well, anyways.. I'll try to get more pics.. of food and the family so I can share more with you guys.. I don't know when else I'll be able to get online.. As we speak, I just paid for a ridiculously expensive Belgian Chocolate ice blended for my sister as I use the WiFi here at Coffee Bean Damai. Hahahaha wanna meet me here? Come NOW!!!

To Buy or Not To Buy?

As of this moment, whoever wants to call me, just better give up 'coz I misplaced my handphone. Or more accurately, I don't know where Allie put it. Allie has really been messing with my phone. When she was teething, she kept putting my handphone in her mouth and that totally screwed up my phone's micro sd memory card.

So nevermind, I just used my phone memory instead. Then now, the battery needs replacing because whenever it's on the charger, she pulls it off. Then I put it on again.. then she takes it off again. Now, my battery can stand even a 10-minute conversation no matter how recent I just fully charged it. tension


First memory card, then battery, now the phone is missing altogether. sighI guess this is the sign for me to ask for a handphone for my next birthday. The phone I'm using was a birthday present back in 2006 or 2007, I think. Maybe the new Blackberry Curve 8900 would be a really great present! ihikhik



I'm not an iPhone kinda gal just simply 'coz I don't like touch screen phones. It's cool, yeah.. but I'm a mom. I have to deal with sticky fingers and icky stuff and I just can't deal with touch screen anythings. Unless I want a peanut butter and jelly flavored iPhone, that is.

Whatever phone it is I plan to get, I have to get it far far away from Allie. Maybe I shouldn't even let her see me use it at all!

Choosing The Right Laptop For You!

The last time I went shopping for a laptop, which was back in 2007, all I was focusing was on the style more than the specs that the laptop provided. That was until I talked to my eldest brother who was in the computing industry. He gave me lots of advice regarding how to choose the best laptop, what features I should consider and basically the pros and cons between each laptop I was considering at that time.

For those just looking for something portable to do their office work or to blog, a basic laptop a good RAM speed and high memory should suffice. For gaming purposes, you might want to look into a Sony Vaio VGN series. But if you're into advertising, and you do a lot of graphics, animation, art you might want to go for a laptop designed for it, like an Apple Macbook Pro.



So for those who intend to get a laptop or a computer, you best be looking into a laptop and computer buying guide or check out what the Top 10 picks are on the market right now. Good luck and happy shopping!!

p/s: Okay, that was just me posing with a Macbook Pro. LOL! I have no idea how to use the functions on that.. I'm happy with my Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone that hubby got me for Christmas 2007! But I did manage to fool you guys for a second there, right?? Hahaha.

Desperate Housewife...

HELP!!!

I am in desperate need of a camera right now.. Allie's 1st birthday is coming up and I don't have a camera to capture her moments.. Oh no!! I have "something" planned for Allie's special day but if I don't have a camera by then, I won't be able to share her special moments with the rest of the family back home.. :(

And the worst thing is, I'm soooo bad at this photography thing that I don't even know what camera to look for even if I wanna get one. Definitely a "point and shoot" camera, though. It would be absolutely crazy for me to purchase anything "techy"-er than that. Like, seriously!! And oh yeah, it must be cheap! LOL!

So wish me luck you guys.. tomorrow's the last day for me to search for it.. because 29th is Allie's big day! Hope that I won't get ripped off or anything like that... LOL!

p/s: Roz, like yours to mesti murah sudah kan.. it seems like a good camera. What model is it, ya?

UPDATE: I didn't manage to go around LowYat (Rafiq's recommendation) because the hubby had a big headache and didn't wanna drive. (His excuse for not wanting to go down to the city, I suppose). But he managed to salvage his old Sony Cybershot digicam that he thought was useless but actually only needed a memory card. Hahaha.. and I thought I was the least tech-savviest person around. LOL! Anyways, since all we need is a memory card, at least we didn't have to go through rows of shops filled with laptops, gadgets and what nots at LowYat.

So now THAT'S settled, just wait for my pics, ya?

And to answer everyone's questions, I'm in KL right now. hehe..

Now don't all of you go rushing all at once to wanna meet me.. one by one la.. gelakguling

Inspector Gadget!

Speaking of gadgets, I just remembered that I had a wayyyy overdue tag on the subject. Actually I was tagged by Nick for this Dream Gadget tag a long time ago. I think he tagged me waayyy back..... fikir .... in a previous life. ihikhik It was THAT long agoo...

So anyways, even if I am not a tech-savvy person, that doesn't mean I haven't got an eye on some cool gadgets that I'd like to own..


I would definitely like this charging station.. Not only does it look pretty cool, it keeps all the wires away.. which is a plus due to the fact that I have 2 curious children around. It's wall-mountable too! The best part of it is, it's only $35!

Okay, that may not be a "dream gadget"... so... for the next one I chose something more worthy of my dreams.. LOL!

... the Kodak Easyshare V705 camera!


For someone like me, who hasn't the faintest idea on how to take a good pic, well, I think this might have to be the camera for me because it isn't only easy to use.. nobody can blame me for taking a bad group pic. No one will get cut off! Everyone will get to be in the group pic! LOL!


See what I mean?? Cool eh? .. and it only retails at $349!

And last but not least...

.....weighing in at approximately 3 pounds, 0.16 inches at it's thinnest point and 0.76 at it's maximum height.. my ULTIMATE DREAM GADGET is...


The Macbook Air. rindu

Major drool! lapar

Well, now that you've gotten a glimpse of what gadgets I'd like to own.. therefore I'd like to see what these bloggers dream of having..

The tagged victims bloggers are:

Syura, Amie, Jean and Massy... Rafiq, Saifulrizan, Faizal, Arms, Bluecrystaldude, Faisal and Edgar..

Yup! That's all! Have fun you guys! senyum
