My Samsung Galaxy S4

So, finally I was able to get the S4 from Samsung. Right after pulling it out fresh from the box on the day it arrived from the mail, I took photos on its various angles including the box...( I love the color design of the box, by the way).
This is a delayed guilty as charged! LOL! As you can see the date marked on the photos, that was the date I actually received the phone. So, it was 5 months ago. So sorry that I am a bit way backlog about this, but better late than never at all ;).

I actually didn't buy this phone because I badly need was out of curiosity that led me to get one, due to feedbacks I frequently hear and read from the news, telling that it is now the top phone used by many, some says it's now the no. 1 phone, surpassing the iphone,....blah, blah! I couldn't say anything about those without actually having one, so here it is.
Of course, with those features that the iphone didn't (and couldn't) have were the strong points that S4 became increasingly more popular, with a cheaper price.

So now being an S4 user (officially), - I love the dual camera mode in taking photos with its front and rear cameras while taking photos two scenes at once. 

There are more camera features it has comparing it to the iphone such as the drama shot, the sound and shot mode, and the phone's ability to create a media and story album, right directly from the phone. Honestly, I haven't tried using all of these features yet, particularly the air gesture command features. I tried the smart scroll feature one time, but it made me dizzy reading online stuff, so that didn't impress me much.

One purpose that I got S4 was because I can play and edit photos the way I want it since the device is equipped with many photo settings. (although the most recent IOS update for iphones has now been added with more photo setting choices as well.)
Second, I can extend more storage space with its built-in microSD slot. While iphones would depend from icloud for extra storage space, it is still limited unless you are willing to pay a subscription service to get more storage from icloud.
But still I would be always at a high risk of malwares using the S4 once I am online. Luckily, I was able to purchase and downloaded Kaspersky anti-virus software for mobile security (Android).

I don't find the group play convenient for me as well. I do download games sometimes, but I don't like share plays at all. I do play solitary games for past times only.

It would be nice sharing the complete features of S4, but that would be a long post. Another thing is,- there are more of its features that I haven't tried using yet.

Until now, I still find the S4's interface more cluttered too. S4 can have tons of amazing features in a cheaper price but with lots of buttons and icons to push, touch and swipe, it sometimes lead to confusion that I would end up going back and forth, making the task much time wasting and search longer. Iphone's interface is much more clean and organized. Easier to find what you are looking for, and thus much faster to finish whatever you want to do.

So, and still. the reason why I am currently using my iphone as my primary contact device. 
But since I travel a lot, S4 is definitely one good back-up to use when I travel out of the country because I bought an unlocked one.

There is no bad phone so long as it does its purpose! ;)

Fireplaces By The Fireplace Element

If you leave in the Bay area, it is reasonable enough to have your own fireplace at home. Don't you think? I've been there several times during my previous trips, and being a tropical person, I know how I would bundle up whenever I would hang out somewhere ;). Most of the time, it's cool if not too cold particularly during the late evenings.

No wonder it is not that hard looking for a Fireplace Design in Bay Area. The more choices, the better it is to find the ideal style for your home. Whether you would prefer an electric fireplace, a gas or a wood fireplace, each category has its own various styles.

It is also interesting to consider putting fireplace inserts in your home if you wish. It's one of those modern ways of installing a fireplace nowadays. And it all depends on the style you want as well.

But if you still prefer choosing a gas fireplace, no problem. You can either choose to have the classic type, or the modern type with various choices of subcategories to choose from. You should start browsing the photos and see them yourself ;).

How To Handle Your Mail Pile - Fast!

Before tossing your junk mails, be sure you're not exposing all high risk documents that would end up on you, - being a victim of ID theft.

Get the habit of having a shredder or a recycle bin nearby while sorting your mails and choose what to toss and shred.

If you need to clean up old documents and need to let them go, such as old credit cards and receipts, bank statements, or any documents containing your social security number,...any legal stuff, shred them!

Instead of opting to receive bank statements from the mail, you might just try to go paperless such as setting up your online accounts with your banks and  sign up for electronic statements instead.

If you receive a lot of junk mails, request for a removal of your name from the mailing list such as those from marketing materials, catalogs, credit card and bank saving offers and applications, etc...

One site that can probably help will be or you can search for more online.

Brookstone's iConvert Scanner V2

Few weeks ago, I happened to go into Brookstone store at Columbia Mall just to window shop...well, I ended up buying this scanner for my iPad or iPhone. This exclusively works for Ipod touch (4th gen. only), Iphone 4 & 4S, and for ipad1 and ipad 2, and 3 only.

I thought of getting it because of its portable size and is lightweight. It can be carried all along even when you're traveling. It can be carried into your backpack which only has 12 inches in length and 4 inches width. It also comes with a power cord, a manual and some accessories like calibration sheet, lens cleaner, roller cleaner and a protective sleeve. You will know all the uses of each of those accessories included once you read the manual which also comes with it :).

In order for this to work on your apple devices (for those only mentioned previously), you have to create an account with iTunes and download the free scan app by Brookstone at the Appstore. Once done, it will give you the step-by-step prompts scan and has options to save or delete your scanned documents.

For iPhone 5 + users, you can request for a pin connector for compatibility on the pin connector slot (this is where you connect your device while standing upright.

iConvert is very ideal to use for scanning documents, photos, expenses reports, receipts, etc... I have tons of documents that keep piling up and I want to get rid of them. Once I can get to scan them and save it on my files, I can just dispose them to give more space for some other stuff on my cabinets and tables :).
Just take note though, that your document should only have a limited size width of at least 2" to 8.5". More than that wouldn't work.

Scanned documents are automatically converted as JPEG files and can be saved directly to your photo library (if you wish to) on your device, and has a scan of high-resolution 300dpi for clear, crisp images.

So far, so good. I've already scanned my documents that I usually use for my writing. (blogs) such as those brochures or information that I need to take note on my travel blog. Cool stuff! ;)

Conventional Foam Pet Beds

Our pets are part of our family, so they deserve the best. I am a dog lover, and have been wanting to get one. But the fact that we travel a lot would not be the perfect time to have one. :(

But for those who have pets at home, here is some good news worth considering in giving your pets a treat they truly deserve. How about getting them a bed for pets here? There are a lot of various styles so you can choose the best that they would enjoy sleeping into it.

Isn't it so heartwarming to see your pet tucked in to his favorite bed and seeing him sleeping so soundly? Time to upgrade doggy's bed. What do you think?
