Good Bye Eventful 2012, Welcome a new beginning 2013!

2013

2012 was a very action-pack year for me –

  • Jan – Got my own flat
  • Feb – Pre-wedding Photo
  • Feb – Spent all my fortune on flat renovation
  • Apr – Moved in my new flat
  • Jun- House-warming
  • Jul-Sept – Wedding Preparation
  • Oct- ROM & Wedding
  • Dec- Pass my Driving Basic Theory

Above are the main events that I had for 2012.

For gadget wise, It was quite a slow year though, I haven’t been very active on blogging, nor catching up with tech news as I’m already jam-packed.

iPad Mini and Macbook Air are the only 2 main purchase I had. All I can say is iPad Mini is the iPad I have been waiting for. Size wise, I think it really make more sense to me than the regular 9.7″ iPad. 13″ Macbook Air is the best laptop I have ever use in my life, SSD really make a great difference.

What’s on for 2013 then?

  • New Member to our Family!
  • Driving¬†License¬†finally(I hope so)
  • As usual, more blogging(I know I always don’t)
  • More photo and video taking
  • Time Management as always.

Gadget wise, I have updated my buy list for 2013:

  • Apple Airport Extreme
  • Tamron 24-70 VC Canon Mount
  • External HDD for Macbook Air
  • iMac
  • Car?

That’s all folks. May all of you will have a great 2013 and Happy New Year!


Exabytes My Best Webhost thus far

Its almost 1 year since I have switched to Exabytes.sg, and I have never looked back! If you guys have read my blog post previously, I was hosted on iPage for UsingApple.com, my Apple related Blog, which now have over 500 readers per day.

The main reason why I switched was because iPage couldn’t handle the load, my site was down half of the time. I lost quite a bit of readers during that time, so I start searching for a new host. Stumbled upon Exabytes.sg and did some research, it have good reviews and decided to sign up for it.

Exabytes.sg are mostly at malaysia, so it is very near to Singapore where I live, thus the network speed I’m getting is very good, not only that, it helps me traffic with local readers abit. Till now, I haven’t encounter any real issues with them, and the support are so responsive that I was totally impressed with.

Do check out them if you are looking for a good and reliable host.


Growth and Progress

I haven’t been a blogger for very long… To be exact, close to 1.5 years… UsingApple.com‘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!
