Song of the day: the shins - sleeping lessons

Well, it looks like it's been almost a year since my last post. Shit has been so different since when I first started this blog. I remember when I first started this site during a time where i was really stressed out, i needed a creative outlet, and it was the first time in my life where I didn't know what I was going to do, where I'd be. I'm surprised it's kept me coming back over the years. Since I started, I've been able to get a handle on the city I live in, I'm comfortable in the genesis of my career.

I guess what brought me back to this blog tonight was the news of Steve Jobs passing this evening. Being in the industry he's in I think most of us get caught up in what's happening now and upcoming in the future. I spent the evening reading up on this technology mogul focusing on his earlier life. I couldn't believe the made-for-television story his life is. He had the genes of some really intelligent parents, who became professors. His parents decided to give him up for adoption as they were too young to start a family in a time where interracial relationships were definitely not the norm. I didn't know Steve is part Syrian? To add insult to injury, the couple ended up starting a family 10 months after they gave Mr. Jobs up for adoption.

Everything was coming together for me today. The Simpsons may be getting cancelled... My favourite Simpsons episode "mother Simpson" was inspired Mona Simpson, Steve Jobs' biological sister... Steve Jobs is part middle Eastern... RIM's co-CEO, Mike Laziridis, also middle Eastern. I dont what it really means, but those linkages resonated with me today.

Anyways, time's up for this evening. I hope to see you soon my blog friend.

Song of the Day: Hall and Oates - Private Eyes

Why is it that with the crazy numbers of sports that I play, I find myself a non-competitive person? Surely, competition is what makes me want to play every week isn't it?

Song of the Day: Katy Perry - California Gurls

With the great advancements in technology, we've seen great innovation in the consumer electronics industry. This is especially true mobile phone sector. Today, I'd like to talk to you about the Apple iPhone 4. Now, we've all seen older versions of this phone throughout our city. This iPhone 4 is the latest and greatest from Steve Jobs and Co. What I want to focus on today is the new design, display, and the camera.


This new phone is 25% thinner than its previous version. It has a new processor that allows for 40% more talk time, 10 hours of listening to music, 6 hours of web browsing. Added to this is a gyroscope that enables a 6-axis motion sensing. This motion sensing is comparable to the current controllers used in the gaming industry. This allows for more game-focus applications.


Next, is the display. It has 4x the pixel density of a typical LCD display. This is well beyond anything in the consumer electronics market. Its resolution is is higher than the typical human eye. images will be more vivid and smooth.


Finally, the iPhone 4 not only has one camera, but 2! These cameras are 5 mega pixel cameras but will a back light sensor which allows for better images in lower light. The other camera is front facing, which enables the users to video calling technology. Imagine being able to see the person you're talking to at the palm of your hand...
These are just some of the new features of Apple iPhone 4. I can't wait for it to come to Canada!

When the little things mean the most...

Song of the Day: El Ten Eleven - Sorry About your Irony

Man, 2010 has started off with so many events and happenings. Work has consumed much of my time and thoughts whether I want to or not. It;s all good though. The things I'm thinking about are very constructive and I'm glad to be thinking about things like this than deconstructive thoughts. With any spare time I have, I've really enjoyed my time participating in some of the recreational sports around my city. This Winter/Spring, I've signed up for 2 basketball leagues and 1 floor hockey team. Needless to say, my daily frustrations are all gone after exhausting myself on the court.

One highlight so far this year has been my recreational basketball team on Wednesdays. After switching from Thursday nights, we weren't sure what competition we'd have. Unbeknown-st to me, there's another team in league made up of my high school alumni. One of which happens to be my mentor-like figure in public school. He happens to be an Asian guy who was on all the sports teams and quick as a cat. Being a rather bulbous individual throughout grade school, I always wished I was quick as him.
Anyways, seeing that Lightning quick Robbie H was 3 years older than me, I never had the chance to square off with him on the hardwood in public school and/or high school.

So when the recreation basketball schedule was posted, you know I circled one particular game on the calendar. When the game started, I was pretty nervous. I didn't want to let my guard down and wanted to keep my game face on point. I was so excited, I even jumped and actually rejected someone (seriously, this never happens, 'cause I can't jump)! It ended up being a really close game, but we persevered and ended up winning 47 -42. What a game!

Is it ever gonna be enough?

Song of the Day: Metric - Gold Gun Girls

First off, Happy New Year! I think this marks another year this blog is still kickin' around, though the posts have come far and few between. I remember the original intent of this blog was to sporadically document the joys and hardships of post university. I was wondering how the countless hours working in labs and writing reports would translate in the real world. It was quite daunting to think you'd spend 4 or 5 years head-down focusing on getting a piece of paper to one day have no one to really grade and mark you in some degree. You're now on your own and you better make something of yourself.

I think the last time, I had ambitious plans to wrap up the last decade, but I don't know if I could really do it any justice as to how I felt about the last few years just yet. Maybe another few sleeps and I'll get it right. It definitely was a roller-coaster ride backed by a sweet soundtrack to boot. I can definitely see a song associated with every memorable moment of the 00s. That'll have to come into play when I post something about the past decade, so look out for that.

So, what else is there to write about??? without all the hi-jinx of university life to write about, what else can I draw from? With all the partyin' days far behind me and the alcohol leeched from my body, nothing really gets a rise out of me anymore. I'm the weathered veteran who's been through it all I suppose. I now muse about things that happen around me. For instance, I used to be really close with my dearest friends and hung out with them all the time. Now, conversations or hang outs are served with caveat of the couples-only variety. I'm trying to come to terms with this. le sigh...

Anyways, I found this video really tranquil and got my midn off things. Thanks Warmer91
