The only way to travel! Nintendo Switch

11

I was lucky enough to acquire a Nintendo Switch on launch. Since I travel a lot for work, I figured it would be right up my alley. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Unfortunately Zelda is really the only game worth playing that’s out right now, so if you’re not a fan of Zelda, then don’t bother quite yet. I feel that I should also mention you’re going to need some accessories – the Pro Controller would be my first purchase as I’m not a fan of the Joy Cons at all. Second, you should definitely get a tempered glass screen protector, I personally bought the amFilm 2 pack for $10 and it works amazing. Lastly, I would recommend you pick up the Hybrid Cover. I originally bought the playstand, but this works much better while traveling and it protects the screen when it’s stowed away from dust and scratches.

So far the battery has lasted me a 3 hour flight with about 15% to spare, I don’t generally travel beyond that, but if you’re going to – hopefully your airline has either an outlet or you brought something else to do. Overall I’m satisfied with my purchase, I just wish there was more of a game selection. With the exception of Mario Kart in the near future, there’s really not a lot on the horizon other than Splatoon 2.

Fun with Siri, iPhone 4S

I’m sure pretty much every website has done this by now, but I still like finding out what kind of surprising things Siri will say.

For instance, need to hide a dead body? Siri has got you covered.

Or wonder what happened to HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey?

iPhone 4S Photo Test

October 17, 2011

Friday, October 14th, I was one of the 4 million people to get their hands on the iPhone 4S. I upgraded from the iPhone 4 mainly for the upgraded camera, but was it worth it? Yes and No, I do notice a significant difference in image quality on the 4S, but it wasn’t as much as I’d like to have seen. Why Apple didn’t give more options is beyond me. A macro mode or even give me the ability to set my exposure, iso or aperture would have been nice. Who knows, maybe there will be an app for that one day. Overall the camera does work a lot better in lower light conditions and is quite a bit sharper, as far as replacing your current point and shoot I’m not quite sure, however I went to take pictures of a condo I’m in the process of buying and only brought my iPhone 4S, when I tell people that I used my iPhone to take the shots, they’re pretty shocked at how well they turned out. I’ll add more photos as I get more a chance to use it more.

I know some of the videos I’ve seen on Vimeo are pretty amazing. I’ll do a video test later on and post my results.
