September is on the road. In our country it’s quite rainy and stormy. Aside from that everyone’s anticipating Christmas. While of these are happening surprisingly some are planning to go on camping!
In fact it is indeed some good idea especially for your youngsters because nowadays all they ever do is sit or fiddle with their phones. Technology is great and all, but adventures are more fun and full of life lessons. For starters, there are many teen camp information you can check if you’re interested in these.
Even elders like camping as their “alone time with the nature” because it really does feel good to be away from all these gadgets sometimes. It would be our moment to re-connect with God’s creations for us.
As I mentioned before, I’ve been hooked to my Nokia X5 again. Aside from these I’ve discovered how to purchase from Nokia Ovi Store a few months ago. In our country, Philippines – they don’t really allow usage of Visa Cards like how it was with iTunes. So it’s pretty much of a hassle. Not even by Gcash or Smartmoney. But somehow near, I guess.
I purchased 3 themes which I will also introduce for my Nokia X5 website, Strawberried (strawberried.net) but it’s not open yet. Sorry. Among all my purchased themes though, my favorite is Dino.
Dino Theme from MMMOOO
This is from MMMOOO, I also bought the Blackberry version of this but you know, it’s wayyyy better in Nokia. Why oh why? I wish they ported those cute icons. The colors blend in well so much. Just perfect for my candy phone!
To purchase from Nokia Ovi Store
1. Create your Nokia Ovi Account (you will be asked upon log in Nokia Store)
You can also check this through Options -> Sign in/Register -> Settings
2. Just follow the instructions. The key here is to make sure you’ve filled up what your primary phone number is
and that you’ve selected Phone Bill as your payment gateway during your account setup.
3. Load up your phone with load and of how much you’re gonna need (Autoload, Smart eLoad)
4. At Nokia Ovi Store, simply purchase or hit buy. Your load will be deducted of how much the application or theme you bought is.
That simple! However, it’d really be much better if purchases using Visa Cards and Master Cards were possible. Even Gcash and Smartmoney would do.
AS-002 Micro Mini USB Keyboard is a USB mini-keyboard from CD-R King. It’s a local store in Philippines were you’ll find cheap computer and electronic utilities. That said, I was able to give it a try because I bought one for my laptop that seemed to be having problems with the keyboard.
At first, I was really excited. Because I thought it was cute and all. Of course, I was a fan of “cute things”. We were able to give it a test at CD-R King, SM Megamall to find out if the keys were working and it’s good all keys were fine. Then I tested it on my boyfriend’s net book. I had to wait because it installs really slow considering that it’s supposed to be plug and play. Microsoft is taking a long time looking for its drivers. Then finally gave it a go.
Typing is hard. I must admit, I have small fingers but it’s still hard because for one, the keys were arranged differently. Tab key doesn’t exist, it’s just a function and then lastly, functions do not work as they do with your laptop/netbook (you know how laptops have their functions right? And I use them most of the time)
Overall, it’s good if you’re on the go or with a broken laptop like me. Heehee. Unfortunately, our “broken laptop” won’t turn on. So I wasn’t able to test it there. My intention for buying it was to be able to use that old laptop. Oh well~
Price is 880 PHP or so (I can’t recall). For its price, it should be just 500 because really, you’ll end up not using it x) I would still prefer an original keyboard in the end. But it’s worth the try Handy when some keyboards are acting up.
I’ve been playing with Siri lately as I had it installed on my iTouch. Yes, on my iTouch – isn’t it that so cool? Thanks to Wordjelly. At least I got to try it and find its use.
Actually, Siri does have a lot of use and it’s someone to talk to when you’re really bored. She gives you funny answers and can do some stuffs for you like:
- Post your Facebook Status
- Post your Twitter Status
- Reminders and notes
- Call/Message someone
But I am yet to be amazed, I mean, if she can cook and use the proper sieving then that’s when I will be very amazed! Well, that’s silly of me of course since that’s something a machine can’t do for now =P
