The Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition Exists!

This phone release is in line with The Avengers: Age of Ultron. I just wish Samsung would make this edition “not limited”. The video description has the ominous, “The Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition will be available in select countries” line. Even if it did not have that Iron Man branding (who is one of my favorite superheroes), just as long as the Iron Man red and gold color version become part of their official flagship line-up, I would definitely get one! I really love that red color tone combined with that color tone of gold for the accents!

 

Happy birthday, Nokia!

May you have 150 more years of flourishing technological innovation! 🙂 Keep going! Keep moving forward! 😀

The Old Reader: A Short-Lived Affair

The-Old-Reader-going-privateUpdate: The Old Reader announced that they will remain public after all.  I’m still testing out Bloglovin, though: Follow my blog with Bloglovin.

It’s another sad week.

Yesterday, I saw a notification on my The Old Reader page saying that they took down the “Donate” button and that they were going private.  I was initially alarmed after reading the “… going private” page so I headed over to their blog.  Sure enough, I saw their heart-breaking announcement: The Old Reader is going to be a private RSS Aggregator for the developers’ families and friends, those who already donated, & those who signed up before March 31, 2013.

I am neither related or friends with any of the three developers.  I haven’t donated to them in the past.  I also am not one of the privileged few who signed up for their service before March 31, 2013 either; although I wish I did.

Tabs on Gmail

Last May 29, 2013 (Wednesday), Gmail introduced a “new inbox”. The way I see it, it’s an additional way to organize emails. They now implemented tabs that separate emails according to five general categories: Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums.

Bye, Bye for Good, Google Reader

The start of this week was a very disappointing one for me. Back in March when Google announced that it would be ending their (RSS) Reader service, I thought they would come up with a better RSS aggregation solution. I thought they wouldn’t really be ending their RSS aggregator. Besides, in the morning of July 2, a day after the announced kill-off of Google Reader, I could still access the service. So I thought, maybe it was a joke?

Alas, in the evening of the same day, I got this message:
