iPod Touch~

(Edited at 1042, 08/19/09)

On 10th August 2009, I made a big decision by buying an iPod Touch 16GB (2nd generation)
Of course, the decision was not easy to made
I never had the intention of having one actually :p

After more than a week using it, I think about giving my review to this gadgets~
Only the basics
(This review is mostly targeted to my friends who are going to US, especially to those who are going to buy an iPod there :D)

FYI, this is my first time to own an Apple product
____________________________________________________________________

Design

With size 110mm x 61.8mm x 8mm and screen size of 3.5 in, it couldn't get any better. It will fit into most of your pockets, but maybe just fit enough if you are wearing jeans XD
The screen is large enough for you to feel the sensation of navigating through the iPod at your fingertips. Believe me, you feel satisfied just by sliding the menu!



Connectivity

-Wi-Fi (the main reason for having iPod :p)
-Bluetooth (for 3.0 only, which you can upgrade within iTunes)
-USB port 2.0

Battery

Using non-removable lithium battery with built in charger, it can last for about 6 hours for videos, and about 36 hours for musics
The battery drains very fast if you use it with Wi-Fi connection

Functions

It has Sarari web browser, mail, Youtube, Google maps, voice memos, music player, video player, photos, App Store and iTunes
You need to have iTunes in your laptop to put songs, videos, photos and applications to your iPod
Alternatively for applications, you can download it from your iPod using App Store



There are a lot of Apps that you can download from App Store, including games, al-Quran, dictionary, and many more



Some Apps that I would like to highlight are Yahoo! Messenger, Skype, Facebook and eBuddy, since these Apps make it easier for you to get connected, especially if you want to contact your parents at home :) (fall under 'Social Networking' category)

For calling using Skype, you need to buy earphones with mic, which you can get in stores for RM129.00 (in Machines store)



Ease of use

Since browsing using the iPod is all about touching the screen with your finger, it can be better or worse sometimes.


You can navigate very quickly and it is very smooth, but you will have difficulties to type when you use it for the few first time
I guesss the only problem is when your finger is too big for certain tasks xp


_______________________________________________________________

I guess that is the basic of it
For the prices, you can google it for more accurate price
I bought it for RM1229.oo~
Do ask me if you have any inquiries! I'd be happy to help~

I use the iPod Touch for :
- Music
- Browsing internet
- Google Maps
- Check my mails
- Yahoo! Messenger
- Skype-ing
- Facebook-ing
- Dictionary
- al-Quran
- Playing games (a must for me!!)



(For next post, I will compare iPod Touch with Nintendo DS Lite and PSP-2000)

    adam - kat rumah aku, aku mmg online all the time
    tp kalo online n tak wat aper2, dier akan stay gitu jer, and battery pun x gerak
    aku rase bergantung kepada data sent and received

    so kalo dier stay online without doing any task, it stay that way la

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
