I hate it when people do this: http://ping.fm/jOoxy

I just realized I've been listening to the same two Billy Joel songs for the past 15 minutes.

Ugh, just got up and got a txt saying I have to switch vehicles for the day. Now I gotta memorize a new list.

Off to bed Facebook World and Twitterland (or trying to). We have a crowded morning tomorrow.

I just saw a military convoy spanning the H2 freeway going to Schofield. Welcome home men and women! I wish I was there to fix your PCs.

Rant from driving 8/30/10

I'm so angry right now, I'll just post a list of what I think:

1) no one follows the rules of the road
- everyone goes over speed limit, even in the slow lane. I bet people don't even know where the slow lane is.

2) when following a van that says 'wheelchair access', assume there's a wheelchair person who is feeling all of the road bumps, and don't change lanes abruptly to pass van and cut him off to get back into original lane in front of van.

3) Use your damn turn signal! Even if you use it, turn it on at least 2 seconds before the turn to warn people you're about to get into their lane. Luckily I leave a 2-3 second gap between me and the person in front of me.

Where's the cops when you need them?

If you want to see how bad Hawaii drivers are, drive a wheelchair van with a person in a wheelchair from Ewa Beach to Wahiawa.

Listenin' to some Kenny G jazz. I think I'll just grab all of his albumbs and send it to my Zune... wirelessly.

I better stop buying 2gb USB flash drives, and start going to atleast 8gb... or have a dropbox-like local network system.

It took me 20 minutes to travel 4 miles. Wow.

Yay for running chkdsk on my laptop on a Saturday morning with a sore throat. We're having fun today!

Other than being free from windows-based viruses, I don't really see any reason to keep it. Okay, to show off to people.

I forgot my gaming laptop was a hackintosh. Unfortunately, no camera drivers for it, so no photo booth :(

I don't get how the @ symbol equals to the letter A. I thought the @ symbol means at, as in pyehac@gmail.com.

I just realized when Dish switched our box, they took our recorded shows too. Damn. I guess this is how it feels before we got DVR.

Why is the news warning people about DUI checkpoints? Shouldn't it be a surprise since people shouldn't be drinking and driving?

My grandpa is in the hospital again. I don't think I can visit him since I'm fighting the cold.

For some reason, I want to go back to Texas, but its so fricken hot there.

I was born a premature baby, so thanks KapiolaniMedicalCenter!

why am I thinking of math and physics while I'm learning to ride a bike?

I almost can ride a bike. I just need to bend my legs to push the pedal 360 degrees around the chain rings.

go up a hill for 3 minutes, just to down it in 20 seconds

rant on the tablet

I admit, all products from china has some flaws. My tablet has a few: the touchscreen sucks, android keeps on crashing randomly; it can't show any pictures; the accelerometer is slow and the buttons are remapped to compensate for the lack of physical buttons seen on android phones. However, this is a geek device, meaning you can hack and slash it anyway you like without first have to release from jail.

And to top it all off, the time it takes for the tablet to go from a cold boot to internet ready is about 30 seconds - my netbook can do the same if I set up auto login. My netbook can print; have external devices installed in a few seconds; have a full word processing program + spreadsheet + database + presentation software and photo editing software, not to mention it can dual boot Windows 7 and Mac OS X and has a camera.

I feel I have good coverage on devices: iPod Touch < flatpad < netbook < laptop < desktop and at one time none of these devices will be on my person or with me. Now, to get clear wireless internet so I can have internet where ever I go.

However, I'm keeping it - maybe I can hack it when everything gets smoothed out, and I'll probably get a 2nd tablet, then I can compare features. Plus, you can never have enough internet-enabled devices.

homeless guy: we're not obligated to give you anything

Damn, Amazon can't ship lancets to my address. Its not like its a sharp object... oh wait, it is.

There's a glucose meter that looks like a USB flash drive! If I buy it, I might either lose it or mistake it for my flash drive.

just spent the last 15 min looking at glucose meters. some of the test strips are hella expensive!

wall of text "review" of the flatpad

Ok, some of you know I'm an Android fanboy and despise anything Apple. I spent a couple hours with Flatcomputing's Flatpad aka ePad aka Zenithink ZT180 aka Enso Zenpad. Yes, you get what you paid for ($200 + change) - so far TV shows on video is slow; the accelerometer sucks; the buttons are remapped to compensate for the lack of other buttons on the front fascia seen on Android phones; BUT this is a geek's device - meaing you can upgrade the firmware on your own - customize the system itself without requiring any jailbreaking, and of course, it has Android.

I feel I have good coverage on devices: iPod Touch < flatpad < netbook < laptop < desktop and at one time none of these devices will be on my person or with me. Now, to get clear so I can have internet where ever I go.

Now that I've tasted a tablet (not literally) I can wait a couple of months until a new one comes out, not like apple where I'd wait a year.

ok, wifi works with an unsecured connection. Gotta find out what encryption it supports.

I guess this is where I get to hack this baby and see if I can improve what's broken flatpad

Labels:

I can't connect via wifi, watching a TV show video is slow, I can't view the live wallpapers, no external nav buttons flatpad

And i still have some CPU power left, not to mention screen real estate.

Time to run the antivirus scanner, Windows Defender scanner, malwarebytes' antimalware, and Super antispyware scanner, all while sufing.

oh, and I'll jump ship back to a Windows phone if Zune/Zune Marketplace is integrated. Gotta have my $15/unlimited music subscription!

Dang, now when I use my right turn signal, it won't turn off when I turn the wheel straight. I blame my sister/mom for breaking my car.

wow. get one bag ice w/ yogurt order @ orangetree

I can handle waiting for clients to be discharged, but waiting for a family member takes forever!

yay my grandpa is about to be discharged from the hospital!

Yes HFD, your firetrucks' horns work fine. Now stop being horny.

Spent $40 to fill up my little Mazda3 car, and it did 20 MPG. I hate it when people don't drive frugally in my car. I used to do 28 MPG.

Want to wake up? Bathe a dog.

But I still need more RAM. Anyone knows where I can download more?

Now my Xeon-based computer with 4gb of RAM is feeling a bit snappier, thanks to the removal of MSE, and the installation of Antivir.

OMG, the mz2 is so cute! Its like a mz3 and a mini had a baby!

i hate being on call

losing your slippers is like losing a well worn friend

Now all I need is something to be delivered via Fedex, then I would have packaged delivered by the 3 major delivery companies.

My flatpad is shipping! Lets hope USPS is fast.

Its like a clamp on your nose

Last night, we had chinese takeout, and there were a dish called shrimp cake noodles. I know I'm allergic to shellfish, but I didn't know I should avoid foods cooked with it. I decided to take some noodles, but avoid the shrimp (using another utensil to get it plus avoid touching the shrimp with it). This morning, I couldn't breathe through my nose - shit. I wake up to take benadryl, so hopefully I can reduce the reaction.

I hate not being able to work.

Even if I only eat the noodles in the shrimp cake noodles dish, I get an allergic reaction. *hits head against wall*

I'm still alive

I've been posting tweets via twitter instead of blogging them, so that's why I haven't posted since February.

Anyway, I'll be using this as the main platform for reviewing the Flatpad A10 Android tablet, hopefully with pics, video and answering comments from people from twitter/facebook/anywhere else I can help out review the product.

My iPod Touch? Its demoted to bathroom duty, since I bought an adapter to play my Zune HD in my car ($10 for unlimited music + 10 songs for free? Fuck yeah!)
