gopro8_test_for_paddling

Hey everybody! In a previous outdoor video, I had tested the GoPro Hero 8 Black while biking. This time, I try it out while canoe paddling. I test the video quality, image stabilization and waterproof features of the action camera. While on the water, I catch (and release) a big bass.

Is the small but expensive gadget worth the price? Watch the camera in action in my video. Enjoy!

I remember in my foundation year of art school, I entered a classroom and saw rather peculiar looking computers.  What are these?  They looked like toys.  But they were not toys.  They were called the Macintosh.  Little did I know, this moment would turn out to be a lifelong bond with a tool that would take my own creativity to a greater level.  From then on, the Apple brand changed the landscape with each new innovation, not just in personal computing, but also the music player, the phone and the tablet.  To be more specific, it was Steve Jobs who single-handedly made technology more accessible and fun to use.  Although, I didn’t know him personally, when he died on Wednesday, I felt a great loss in my life.  It was as if he was a close friend who was suddenly gone.

Here, I dedicate a little drawing to a talented and brilliant visionary who made every man and woman, every girl and boy, into a techie.  Because of him, the term geek, actually became cool.  Thank you Steve Jobs. We will miss you.

Houston, we have a problem. The Shuttle program is shutting down. This drawing, originally, was to be a simple cartoon, but I liked how the drawing turned out, so I pushed it to be more complete, painting it digitally in Photoshop. As a kid, I marveled at the art for sci-fi such as in Star Wars. So, for that as my inspiration, plus the basic structure of the Shuttle, I worked extra on the concept design for the spaceship, including windows for passengers and sleeker aerodynamics. One day, perhaps, a ship will be used as human transportation between planets. Unfortunately, this is the last year for NASA’s Shuttle program. So the dream of mankind traveling in space will have to wait further into the future. The following list details the last flights for the Shuttle:

I gave an iTunes gift card to my friend for the holidays, and he was wondering how to use the gift card directly with his iPhone because he is rarely home.  It is a good question, and yes, it is possible.  Note: if you want to purchase a file larger than 10MB such as certain heavy Apps, you will have to use your computer to download it.  If you do wirelessly download songs or Apps directly to the iPhone over 3G or Wi-fi, remember to backup those files to a computer.  I did a drawing and put together simple step-by-step instructions here…

How to redeem an iTunes gift card on your iPhone.

for Apps:
– Go to the app store > featured > new
– Scroll all the way to the bottom until you see “redeem”
– Press “redeem” and enter the iTunes gift card number

for Music:
– Go to the iTunes store > music > new releases
– Scroll all the way to the bottom until you see “redeem”
– Press “redeem” and enter the iTunes gift card number
