Growth and Progress

I haven’t been a blogger for very long… To be exact, close to 1.5 years…‘s first blog post is on November 2009. I was never a Apple Fan boy, nor do I use any Apple product. Thanks to my girlfriend and parents who bought me an iPhone 3G for my birthday 2 years ago and turned me into one.

I bought my Macbook Pro on June of 2009 and there it drove me to create UsingApple blog sharing Apple related news, tips and tricks on it.

Below is the progress of my Apple Blog for the last 20 days… Better impressive from my own point of view… I remember those were the days when my blog only have 1-2 views and I finally got a average of 300-400 unique per day.

Thanks everyone… I will continue to blog more…Haha!

UFO Spotted hovering over Dome of Rock, Islamic Shrine

Always a fan of UFO, Aliens and weird weird stuff happening around the world… So this video is cool…. UFO Spotted hovering over Dome of Rock, an Islamic Shrine on top of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

It is just a bright white light, but look at the SPEED is can burst up into the sky in like less than a second! We are not sure if the video is real or fake, but with the crowds reactions in the video, and video taken by 2 different groups with different angle…

Check out the UFO Video:

Motorola Atrix – your phone, your laptop, your everything!

Quite a cool idea, that you can dock your phone and be using it like a desktop… Although it should have quite a few issues as it is the first generation of it. But the idea itself is cool, as you can actually use 1 device throughout, files and contacts don’t really need to be sync from phone, to your laptop to your desktop to your phone again. Haha!

Here is hands on video on Atrix, it is already working, will be release by the first quarter of 2011:

It is quite cool right, but I think the media center dock is quite “stupid”. If I have AirPlay like iPhone, I don’t really need to dock my phone to play my videos on phone. What is worse is you will have to run to your phone if you get a phone call or text message? If I’m doing AirPlay I can just answer it… anywhere in the house.

Nevertheless Atrix seems like a quick glance to the future of what we will be having. Dummy Terminals like the laptop dock, and we just need to bring around our smartphones. Motorola, please add a video cam on your laptop dock, else how do you do video calls?

Wishlist for 2011!

This is my first ever wishlist, I was never really into blogging previously. I started blogging just late 2009, started as a hobby blog for Apple products as I got in love with Apple. Of course, i gotten the hang of blogging, and started as my personal blog, blogging on tech stuff that aren’t really related to Apple and my life.

So now let’s list down my wishlist for 2011!

1. NAS – I need it, this is one my confirm buy list, as I really need more space, so NAS should be the way to go, less cables.

2. iPhone 5 – No doubt about it, iPhone 5 will be in my list, so will iPhone 6 the next year.

3. Entry Level DSLR – I love my HD Video Cam given to me from my girlfriend, video is really the only way to help you remember those happy moments during tours and events. But taking good photos is an art. I wants to learn how to take good picture, thus entry level DSLR is what I want for 2011 too!

4. Airport Extreme Base Station – My linksys router served me for almost 8 years… still going strong, but I want an Airport!

5. Macbook Air 11inch – I think it is a wonder, a very cool and thin laptop, which I think is the way all laptop should be.

6. Mac Mini Server – Always wanted to test out Snow Leopard Server OS, of course if Lion Server will be on Mac Mini Server, I will prefer it! :X

7. iPad 2 – I have blogged about why I don’t want to buy iPad, but after almost 1 yr, I still don’t see any tablet as good as iPad, maybe iPad 2 will have features that make me change my mind about buying iPad?

8. iMac 27inch  – iMac have the nicest screen I have ever seen, large screen is always cool, but I think the next refresh will be the one that I will buy even more. Hopefully SSD will be cheaper and I think SSD as primary HDD is the way to go for desktop too!

Haha, this my list of wishlist, they are numbered, according what I feel I need it most. Although all of the above is what I want, but what I need is actually just NAS. The rest are really just plain wishlist. My Macbook Pro 13″ is serving me like a king, just that I’m running out of HDD, thus NAS is cool.

What’s your wishlist for 2011? How different is it to mine? Leave a me a comment. if you are feeling rich, and wish to give me any items on my wishlist, please feel very free to contact me! Haha!
