One of my biggest nightmares of all time would be losing all the information I had stored in my WD Elements 1 TB hard drive, because not only it contained a big chunk of my work, but also photographs that were part of my precious memories.
You might be thinking “What’s the big deal? It’s just a wallet, it carries cards, coins and notes…”. Well, let me tell you: you’re not wrong. Seriously, you’re right, it’s just a wallet. But this particular one, by the German company called Sonnenleder, is one of the finest leather wallets I have ever come across.
Bowers & Wilkins is an English brand that is known worldwide for manufacturing high fidelity audio products, especially for their home stereo loudspeakers. When B&W decided to get into the headphone market with the P5, about 10 years ago, it was a big deal. A really big deal. For the first time, it was possible to take the B&W signature sound everywhere and in addition to that, in a luxurious looking headphone. Since then, they’ve released a couple more headphones and we’ll be looking at the P5’s bigger brother: the over-ear P7.
Summer time (well, at least here, where I am). Probably the season in which people are the happiest and in their best mood. The trips to the beach to chill and hang out with friends become a routine. For people that, like me, always carry a pair of sunglasses around, one of the biggest fears is to break or forget an expensive pair of sunglasses somewhere in the middle of all the craziness associated with the summer. However, a cheap pair bought in the streets isn’t a good idea either because it isn’t protecting your eyes at all. Truth be told they might even be harming your eyes. Which is the solution then? Spitfire!
Plantronics is an American company founded by two pilots in 1961 with the goal of revolutionizing the headset industry with lightweight wireless devices. This company even developed some products for NASA and the world’s of the famous astronaut Neil Armstrong when he landed the moon were transmitted in a Plantronics headset. The Discovery 975 is a very lightweight Bluetooth headset that is useful for receiving calls in a busy environment or as a hands-free solution for when you’re driving. Continue reading
One of my favourite brands for casual watches is Diesel. Not only because they are usually big, but I really like the design put into them. This is a watch that I have had for several years already and I’m afraid they might not be available to purchase online anymore, but you may be able to find it in some stores. It is without a doubt an amazing timepiece that goes well with any style.
AKG is a brand by the group Harman that is very well known for their great quality products for both professional and personal users. The AKG K451 is a pair of on-ear headphones, from the “On-The-Go” line, that has already won the What Hifi’s award “Product of the Year” for two consecutive years, 2012 and 2013. Let’s take a look on the accessories and listen to how well these sound.
When using laptops, people may wonder whether using the trackpad is enough or they need a mouse to work faster and more comfortably. If you have already used a mouse with your laptop and think it didn’t really make a difference, this post will not change your mind. However, to answer the question in the first paragraph, I find it very useful myself, and I’m going to share some ideas about Apple’s Magic Mouse, for Mac OS users.
As you might have heard before, one shouldn’t stick to the earphones that come with the phones, because it is possible to have good sound quality on earbuds too for those that are concerned about portability. A great proof of that is the a-JAYS Five by the Swedish company JAYS.
This is a pair of earphones that not only have a simple, minimalistic style but also sound absolutely amazing. In the manuals it can be read “Simply because we can, we keep it simple and develop advanced high-quality products in black or white in innovative designs. We believe that the colour should be deep in the music and not in the surface.” Could not agree more.
With the evolution of technology, digital art is becoming more and more common. In one of the previous posts, the posters of Breaking Bad by Zsolt Molnar, a big piece of evidence for that new trend was shown. I think any digital artist would agree that a tablet would ease a lot the process of creating, painting and drawing. In that field, Wacom is one of the best brands, delivering well designed and quality products.
