Polaroid Snap Touch: Your Next Generation Instant Print Digital Camera

polaroid snap touch20170111_094806

Polaroid, the mother of instant print cameras is back with the next generation digital camera Snap Touch.

While the market celebrated the analog instant print cameras these past few years – its novelty didn’t really stick, with me, at least. I received at least a couple of those analog instant print cameras. They were exciting for at least two minutes, but that’s it. I quit snapping as soon as I realized – what’s the point of capturing moments, when I can’t store them digitally, in this digital age! It was stone age fun, to be honest. We have long bid adieu to jurassic technology, as far as I know.

Award-winning Sleek Design

The Acer Liquid Jade Primo features Acer’s award-winning Liquid Jade design language with a sleek and slim profile, curved back cover that fits comfortably in the hand and ergonomic 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen. The rear and front covers feature a fine hairline-brushed finish, while a sharp diamond-cut band wraps the chassis and gives the smartphone an even more polished look. The cohesive circular-shaped receiver, rear camera, and speaker inherited from the Jade family add a touch of elegance.

Multitasking Multiplied

With a USB Type-C monitor, wireless display accessories or the Display Dock, the Liquid Jade Primo can provide a PC-like experience on an external display with Windows 10 universal apps. It can be used as a touchpad and virtual keyboard or a keyboard and mouse can be connected for multitasking on both the screen and on the external display. With these, simply connect the Liquid Jade Primo to any TV or monitor at hotels or anywhere. This is perfect for on-the-go executives so they can just simply leave their heavier laptops at home. You can also project presentation decks to a projector or large screen while displaying the “Presenter View” on the Acer Liquid Jade Primo, or play videos on the TV while using other apps simultaneously.

The Acer Liquid Jade Primo Desktop Kit includes: Jade Primo Uit, Display Dock, Wireless KB and Mouse and Free Flip Cover

The Liquid Jade Primo features a stunning 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display that supports 100 percent of the NTSC color gamut, with 10000:1 contrast, and 176-degree wide-viewing angles. A hexa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 808 processor, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory provides powerful performance needed for multitasking, while LTE Cat. 6 and 802.11ac MIMO connectivity options make downloads a snap. The 21MP f/2.2 auto-focus rear camera has dual LED flash and supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording and the 8MP f/2.2 front-facing camera boasts a wide-angle of up to 84-degrees, while supporting up to Full HD 1080p video recording.

Engineering Excellence

To reduce the heat that resource-intensive multitasking brings, the Liquid Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system that efficiently dissipates the heat from the processor, while also reducing the overall rear surface temperature.

For a slimmer chassis, the Liquid Jade Primo’s antenna is formed by laser direct structuring (LDS) technology, allowing integration of the antenna and back cover. Also contributing to the slimmer profile is on-cell touch technology, which moves the touch layer onto the outer glass surface of the screen, eliminating the touch substrate layer.

Huawei Watch: The Ultra Stylish Smart Watch Designed for Both iOS and Android Users

We’ve probably all have seen smart watches strutting their stuff for a while now but while they may be “smart,” they mostly come in “boxy,” and definitely not so stylish looking. But hey, people were hooked and bought them primarily because of their functionality. A smart watch is a smart watch, right?

But not all smart watches are created equal. Huawei got that so clearly across at the recent Huawei smart watch launch at Green Sun Hotel. The Huawei Watch blends together timeless looks and smart features in a timepiece you’d want to wear everyday, everywhere.

The fully circular watch features a 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED display, scratch-proof sapphire crystal lens, cold-forged stainless steel frame, and comes with a built-in heart rate monitor and 6-Axis motion sensors. (more…)

Kikay Corner’s Christmas Gift Ideas 2015

A list of what to give your loved ones this Christmas.

It’s exactly 25 days until Christmas, are you officially done with your shopping list? For the first time in forever, I can actually say I am done with holiday shopping! I realized that it’s a general tone for people to sound quite burdened when it comes to checking off Christmas lists, I’m choosing the other road this time around. This year, I resolve to being thrilled to be blessing the people I love. Not that I didn’t enjoy giving the past years, but unlike before, I now refuse to be weighed down by the pressure of having to give. Besides, the Bible verse is timeless: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

It has been an eventful year and I have been truly blessed by the people I’ve come across with – whether they are new ones or have spent time with a bunch of old friends as we nurture this gift called friendship.

Here’s hoping to share with you my personal picks for Christmas Gift Ideas 2015.

1. Presence.

presence

Merriam-Webster perfectly defined for us what presence mean. And as seemingly corny as it sounds, it truly has been an elusive thing these days. We’ve exchanged our presence for social media “connection,” and even when we’re with our loved ones, we tend to still be stuck, heads down, eyes glued on our smartphones. I’m guilty as charged. Obviously with my own albeit trivial online presence, I tend to check how my published posts are doing. But I’ve been doing better these days at being “present,” and hope to do better as I spend more time with family this holiday season.  As costless as “presence” seem to sound, it actually can cost us our default, which is to get hold of our smartphone. Offer the gift of your “presence” and have a real, meaningful conversation and quality time with the one you love. The gift of undivided attention is priceless!

  1. ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser

Okay, before you get driven off the wall and begin to point out the many ways I’m contradicting myself, allow me to say that it’s really a matter of balance. (more…)
