Why you don’t need a wifi camera

Overheard my officemates a few lunches ago talking about a 14MP wifi camera from Samsung.

Ah, err, well, if I’m not mistaken the wifi camera existed even earlier than 2010. It’s not “new” technology. But what I really what to point to out is, unless you’re allergic to wires and cables, you don’t need one.

The wifi camera won’t let you browse the web on itself. What it does is limited to:

1. Instant uploading of photos/videos to your social networks. (What’s the emergency? And do you even have enough battery to do so)
2. Wireless transfer of photos/videos (When you’re already at home/office, everything you need is already there. It might be the only exercise you have left. Go find that cable!)
3. Using your iPhone as wireless shutter for your camera, depends on brand and availability of the ios app. (Err, there’s also something called a timer, so just hold that smile a little longer and count with me. 1..2..3!)

That’s it. I hope I’ve saved you a few thousand pesos, until the wifi in a wifi camera finally makes practical sense.

The List

Whatever it is that I am about to write down now, I would have finished it a few hours ago had I not been too lazy to sit in front of my pc and start writing, or had I got hold of my ipad earlier tonight (it’s Jopoy’s – my nephew’s- turn on the ipad because I bring it to work).

Ever since we’ve moved in to this new apartment and finished unpacking the clutter we brought in, I’ve started to feel at home. Now we (the four of us in the house) have enough space from each other that we can run to a little corner in the house where we can do our own thing.

We’re using broadband sticks now for our internet, the signal can get really really weak making it almost impossible to load a youtube video, and my messenger signs out every few seconds. The owner of the apartment does not allow additional wirings in the building so I’m still figuring out how I can transfer my broadband cable here.

I did not realize that deprivation to the internet and my ipad actually makes wonders. The other night, in my corner of the house, I began listening to the radio to my ear’s content, soundtripping like a hippie. I missed R&B Sundays! (The way I do it is I turn the lights off and I let that LED indicator of the radio/speaker lit up the room. I think of nothing. I just listen and appreciate every beat, yes, even the beat of commercials. The last time I did that was back in college dorm days. Ooooh that was one point I felt like I have all the time in the world. Laidback, stress-free and free!)

On the weekend I got to watch the shows that I want, and felt real use for the remote control. It was only then that I fully appreciated this TV that I bought! And tonight, oh, I got to read the magazine I bought a month ago while listening to the radio (ahem, Boysnightout)! That’s a feat!

I feel like regaining time in my hands now. My life is getting usefully quiet. Time to plan and prepare for what’s ahead. Time to work on my self-improvement list!

Love-iration

Past half the month of May, I need to post something.

This one is about liberation. I have been living in a dream the past several months (almost a year in fact) after a breakup. Been clinging to the past and never letting go…

Sometimes you just have to do something drastic, something almost forbidden, to get an answer. Sometimes you won’t find closure.  You have to make it. When you do, you will find peace. When there is peace, your mind becomes clear (or clearer).

I am happier now. My heart and mind is single again. Some people say the heart (that which is capable of loving) can overcome the mind, while some say the heart is inside your mind. Then it can be true that the mind can overcome itself. Hehe. Crazy?

No. Love is never crazy. Smile. For I am ready to love someone else =)
