2 weeks in europe

Last week i was in Italy for 8 days before that 4 days in Paris. Paris is beautiful if you exclude the public transportation which is probably one of the worst i've used, from the connection between platform being dirty to the gap of the train and the platform being too huge and to the same line colour where you have to go down and change train (why the heck have the same line when you need to change train). If you remove that paris is really beautiful






Venice is different, its beautiful and unique. Use the water taxi was cool, we rode the canoe and was disappointed that the guy was not singing haha.



Florence was okay maybe because we were just there for a day and the other day we went to pisa



Rome was beautiful as well and so vatical city :) But we were so tired by the 3 cities before that we didnt go to other places, maybe someday ill revisit rome :)

XMen Days of future past and Maleficent

Last few days i was buying doing an android app but i still managed to watch XMen Days of future past and Maleficent, while the cgi in maleficent is really good the story is not, xmen however is really good story and effects wise especially blink, love how they use portals and quicksilver screen is really cool.

Third week of May 2014

My find on the 3rd week of may 2014 :)

Music
Three random guys sing together


Android
Flappy 48 is a game that combined 2048 + flappy bird + snake. Its quite fun to play on you're free time :)

Windows Phones
An article at Computer World states that windows phone is stuck at 3 percent market share, i wont be surprise here, i do have a windows phone which my mom won at a christmas party and she end up giving it to me only after few days haha. Then i did play with it for few days and i hate how when you want to find an app that you would use at an specific moment (which you barely use), you have to scroll all the way down and the fast vertical text scrolling is quite irritating. The absence of a lot of apps are quite a downturn which is partially because they want to unify the experience among apps that app developers/designer finds it quite hard to develop for windows mobile (though lately they have lessen it)

Second week of May 2014

Here are some of the stuff that happened or things i found interesting.

Xiaomi Mi3
Last week i got a Xiaomi Mi3, the speed is quite good, the device size is bigger and heavier then my nexus 5. MIUI is quite clean but it has the same problem as iOS the animation speed is too slow that makes device feel slower then nexus 5.

Animation


The Tomorrow People
After the first season of the tomorrow people i would have to say i wont be surprise if the show got cancelled, it started really good but as the show moves forward it gotten okay, i feel the other characters should be the main characters as they do act better like the founder and Jedikiah.

Kickstarter
Anova Precision Cooker - Cook sous vide with your phone cooking with precise temperature makes you cook like a chief on a high end restaurant.

Hong Kong
If you're travelling via MTR, you might find the literal translation of the station names quite interesting. http://scarlettfu.com/blog/travelling-to-dismount-place-or-towards-east-stream/
