Eyes feel drained and tired after reading from the laptop.. So glad we have E-ink readers. Sony DPT S1 has been out for years, and it's price finally drops to an acceptable range. Considering I will have 3 more years of papers to read, I bought it. There would be new tablet out namely Good E-Reader, but I decided not to wait. Besides, from online people have shown by modding hardware you can hack the device and run Android 2.2 on it. Plan to take a look at that.
HoloLens blows my mind.. awesome everything except the limited display area and resolution, and its weight (a bit heavy if you put it on head for > 30min).
Okay, somehow Microsoft Store does not allow me to return one of two purchases on the HoloLens. So I have two now... Well, and equivalently my money is gone... If anyone is interested to develop apps with me (or on some level of cooperation as requested by Microsoft), please feel free to leave a message below. I'll contact you how we can "share" (you know, you need to pay, and it'll be yours, but we have to "cooperate" a bit). This is a one-time only offer, valid until someone gets before you! What you get will be completely the same you purchase from Microsoft Store (if you have the invitation code).

Update: if you just want to play with some VPS or use it as a temporary VPN or something not important at all, use it. Its servers are in Canada and that's probably its only advantage. Avoid it if you want serious VPS. It's quite unstable.. Find a 90% off coupon for CloudAtCost.com through their Twitter… Continue reading Coupon for Cloud At Cost
Lately I purchased a Samsung Gear S2 (AT&T) online. I have been looking at this watch for a while, and it recently lowers its price. What is really cool is that, comparing with its WiFi version (and other smartwatches), Samsung Gear S2 3G is the only one supporting number calling and messaging. That says, it has a sim… Continue reading Samsung Gear S2 3G and Tizen System
When I went back to China, I found this little NFC ring called "TiMER 2." The ring has two colors for men and women. The ring is very cheap - under $15 on ebay. It's claimed to be IP68 so you can wear it under water. And the ring has two NFC tags, one under the little "diamond"… Continue reading TiMER2 Smart (NFC) Ring
Got the tablet two days ago and played it for a while... Project Tango utilizes IR depth sensor to obtain the distance of different objects (and possibly the resulting image is a combined work with fisheye camera). My assumption is they use camera to do some imaging processing to find out rough edges of different objects,… Continue reading Project Tango Tablet... Hmm...
