We Went to Hell in Da Lat, Vietnam!

Figuratively, we went to hell. We visit Chùa Linh Phước aka Chùa Ve Chai (Glass Bottle Temple). Known for its name from the huge 50 Meter dragon out front made out of over 12,000 beer bottles! That’s a lot of drinking! The temple is located at 120 Tu Duc, just 8 KM from downtown Da Lat, Vietnam. Good thing I always have a dreamcatcher when I sleep at night for cases like these. Nice decorative piece that catches the bad dreams which can be found here: http://amzn.to/2kSwGd2

Enjoy and thanks for watching.

Samsung Gear S3 Needs Improvement

I tried to really like the Samsung Gear S3 but couldn’t. The cons outweigh the pros too much for me. Don’t get me wrong, the S3 is a very capable smart watch with all the latest tech including the awesome MST chip to use with Samsung Pay. My top 3 things the Gear S3 can improve on.

1. The Size
I don’t have the biggest wrists so this thing looks like I found this in my father’s closet and decided to wear it. This isn’t the ideal watch for women or guys with small wrists. The Gear S2 was the perfect balance between the two.

2. Price
Prices start at $299 for both the Frontier and Classic models. Smartwatch interest has been static over the last couple years and I think due to the price of them. I think the sweet spot for this watch should be $150-$200.

3. Tizen and Samsung Apps
If there were Google apps on the phone it would make this thing fantastic. S Voice can not get definitions or even simple web searches with your voice. It can dictate voice decently but for anything else is very lacking. Tizen does not have many useful apps compared to Android and there are many people who prefer using Google apps over Samsung.

With that said don’t let that stop you from enjoying the watch though. You can purchase it HERE on Amazon. I am currently wearing a Samsung Gear S2 which I got for only $99 refurbished on Amazon and am liking it so far. There isn’t many reasons for me to upgrade to the S3 so this will be my go to smartwatch until the next big thing.

FINALLY Found A Mini Classic NES

Have Trouble Sleeping?

I’ve been testing this device for the past week and it works surprisingly well. I have thin walls all around me so any sounds come across clear as day.  I have been sleeping was with a floor fan that I turn on low speed just for the sound but the con is that it makes my room freezing at night. This is perfect by giving me the same “fan sound” without the air blowing around the room.

Best Smartwatch of 2016

I often get asked “What is the best smart watch I should buy right now?”, and my answer this year has always been the Pebble Time. It’s a great all around watch with a minimalist design, superb battery life, clear display and my favorite feature: CLICKY BUTTONS WOOOOOO! It works out of the box for both Android and iOS.

The band is 22mm and removable so you can swap it to your liking depending on the occasion. I love the metal mesh band which I purchased from HERE. It looks sleek enough for casual use and classy enough for the office as well. The swap was painless since it comes with the tools needed to remove and install the band. The price point is perfect at only $79 compared to the other expensive smartwatches out there. If you’re looking for the best smartwatch of 2016, check it out on Amazon with the following link.

NES Classic Edition Killer

NES Classic Edition Mini….If you are among the thousands of people who couldn’t get their hands on one at launch, there is a second chance to get something even better. I’m talking about the Retrobit Generations Console which is going for the same price as the Nintendo console and has HDMI output, 2 controllers included, and an overall better game library. 100 games to be exact. Go ahead and dive into that nostalgia with some memberberries.
