  • Smile to my new Nikon D40x

    Back in 2004 I bought myself a very small and nice digital camera Pentax Optio S4i as you probably already knew. For 3 years I’ve been taking lots of pictures and having lots of fun with my camera, but over this past 3 years I also realized how point and shot cameras are very limited […]

  • August update

    Blogs turn very lame when you dont post regularly. Recently I haven’t had anything exciting to write about, so my blog has been falling into the lame category.

    We took this picture at the Apple Store in The Galleria (Houston, TX) using an iMac built-in iSight camera while holding the new iPhone showing Marco’s site.

  • Powerbook + Coffee = Not good!

    Yesterday I had an accident with my PowerBook: I was having coffee for breakfast and spilled some of it over my PowerBook keyboard. I immediately shut it down and turned the laptop upside down, and used a towel to clean it. Since I had to go to work, I left it upside down all day. […]
