I’m a big fan of computers that I can take with me everywhere I go. For most people, the smartphone in their pocket is the most active computer that they use for pretty much everything. Not me, though. I use my iPhone mostly for notification of emails, messages, social media, some YouTube and Netflix (mostly sitcoms), and starting recently, reading books.Read more
It was only a matter of time until I published a post dedicated to the issues I’ve been having with my 2017 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
Seeing the trend of people having issues with the MacBook Pro that’s been going around the web, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
It wasn’t too long ago when MacBook Pros were the best in the industry. I had the luck of enjoying the glorious days with my 2015 MacBook Pro. It didn’t fail once. I thoroughly enjoyed that device until the day I gave it back.Read more
Years ago, I purchased a Kindle Paperwhite from Best Buy during one of my trips to the United States. I was hoping to get back into the habit of reading. It didn’t work. I was not carrying it with me everywhere and I found it cumbersome to buy books on Kindle (with a non-US credit card) or download and upload PDF copies of what I wanted to read. I eventually sold it.

Some people are obsessed with cameras. Some can’t get enough of smartphones. Some have a lot of watches while others are fascinated by the good old pen. I’m obsessed with keyboards, and not the ones that are musical instruments.
My life with computer started in what’s known as cyber cafes that charged hourly for accessing the web. Those were some really bad computers with beat up keyboards. As I discovered my passion for blogging, the keyboard that I use became of paramount importance to me. I think that’s where my obsession with keyboard started.
I always loved MacBook Pro keyboards because they were the best I’ve ever tried. My editor at an online newspaper had a MacBook Pro and I loved typing on it.
