What’s New?

As usual, life caught up with me and kept me from updating the site again. Of course, it’s sort of a good thing since I changed jobs and have some stability now. Of course, the gadget hunting hasn’t ceased but I’ve been bad about updating all of the changes that are going on.

As the holidays near and my schedule begins to lighten up, I’m planning out reviews and topics of interesting things to discuss. I’ll likely discuss Sony Ericsson’s new W910i Quad-band GSM phone which I got to replace my W850i which unfortunately had a short lifespan (I’ll get into that later). Also, I’ll discuss my attempt to use the iPhone as my main phone which obviously didn’t work out (another long story) and random thoughts on the crookedness that is the mobile phone industry (at least in the US).

Finally, as my birthday passed recently I decided to do a major system upgrade as a present to myself. I had a pretty decent and workable system before but as I’ve been doing much more content creation, I felt I needed to get something more substantial. I re-used at least half of my components so that kept the costs down. I ended up with the following:

Intel Core 2 Q6600 Quad-Core 2.4GHz (4 CPU)
8GB of DDR2 PC6400 (800Mhz) RAM
New Lian-Li PC-V300 mATX case

Added to existing parts of:

Gigabyte ATI Radeon 2600HD Pro 512MB Video Card PCI-E
500GB Seagate SATA HDD 7200RPM
SoundBlaster X-Fi Audio

I have some thoughts on this system now that I’ve been playing with it for about month. I actually “only” had 4GB to start but recently decided to splurge on the final 4GB after some research on Photoshop and it’s use of the extra memory. I’ll have thoughts on this later today perhaps but first it’s time for dim sum!
