I recently bought myself the new MacBook Pro 13″ laptop from Apple to replace my existing MacBook Pro 13″ (from mid May 2009). I decided to spend a little extra and get the more powerful model (specs below) but keep to the 13″ as I wanted something light and portable. Whist it may look the same as my previous model from the outside (see picture below), it really is a different machine underneath.
I’ve been lucky enough to have another chance reviewing a product for GearZap (if you don’t know who they are, take a look at my previous review to find out more = http://harryfinn.co.uk/blog/?p=450).
This time around they have sent me the Pocket Boom (as seen here = http://www.gearzap.com/pocket-boom-portable-vibration-speaker.html) – a vibration speaker. So what exactly is a vibration speaker? Simply put, it takes the music connected to the Pocket Boom via 3.5mm jack (male) to your phone, mp3 player etc and generates it into vibration sequences. Then, by attaching the vibration ‘pod’ to an object (in the images below see the pod attached to the cup) and it will turn that object into the speaker through vibrations! (more…)
Sorry for the lack of posts, been kept busy with both University work and web projects plus about a month ago now I had to reinstall my blog and site due to a php hack on the server this site and a few others are hosted on. It meant that I had to edit a lot of PHP files and seeing as how WordPress runs off of PHP it was easier to start over. Thankfully I was able to export my posts/pages/photos etc but I have lost all the tweets and facebook likes on all my posts
Anyway, I am just typing up a new product review, the kind people over at GearZap sent me through another cool product to review and you should see that uploaded to this blog shortly!
After the review I will try and do an update including what I’ve worked on recently and some more YouTube videos I have found over the last few months and think you should take a look at!
Sorry for the lack of blog post(s) last week, I have been away skiing in France and the WiFi was just a pain… dropping out every 10-15mins requiring you to reconnect and its average speed was about dial-up speed (on a good day!).
Anyway, I am home now and in the process of uploading all my photo’s I took over the week to my FaceBook account. I will upload a few here in my new post later on today or tomorrow afternoon.
I hope everyone celebrated the New Year in one way or another! I spent the night with good friends in Brighton at a friends house who is studying at Sussex University. Most of my 6th form friends were all there and it was great way to catch up with everyone and have a good laugh or two well into New Year’s Day!
So, 2012… Lots to do and think about this year. By May this year I will have (hopefully) finished my second year of University and be starting an internship for my 3rd studies. This will mean I won’t be going in to Uni for lectures for about 16-18 months until I start back on my 4th year in September 2013 to complete my course. I am looking forward to the experience the year out will give me and opportunities it could well bring about, both in a professional job based capacity and also for my own personal learning and understanding of the business world.
