What Do You Use Your iPhone For?

I've got this "dedicated device" principle that I like to stick to as much as possible. Back in the day when I had the iPhone 4 and then the iPhone 5, it was easy. The phone was for, well, phone things - calling and texting. Oh, and I used it as an eReader. The iPad was for games and working on the road. The iPod Nano was for music, obviously. Today, the lines have become blurred, thanks to the changes in device sizes.

Why You Shouldn't Get a Brazilian Blowout

Reason 1: It's probably not what you expect it to be. Reason 2: It won't last more than a week. Maybe less. I give these reasons based on my own experience.

Revisiting Mister Kabab - 10 Years Later?

Maybe less than that - maybe 7 or 8 years , but it still felt like flipping the pages of a book backward.

Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Bells & Whistles

"They" say "we" should get regular exercise. Whether it's jogging, walking or doing sports, it doesn't matter. What's important is that the blood gets flowing. So I bought into that idea and started exercising for real some time last year. Me being me, things might be going a bit too far. Or it may just be in my head. But...

She Got Me at Hello

Okay, I know that's bad, and it's inaccurate, too. Truth be told, I stayed away from Adele's music for as long as I could. After all, I had (have?) enough drama in my life. I didn't need "I want to jump off a bridge" kind of music. But get me, she did, with 21. Now, "Hello" is doing it again. Fans love it. Others make fun of it. Some say it took a lot of mixing and mastering to make her sound good. I call BS on the last one. Of course, some sound engineering was done, but watch her performance at the Royal Albert Hall, and you'll know why I made that call. Adele Live At The Royal Albert Hall by SENSETVonair Why am I writing about this again? I honestly have no answer except perhaps because Spotify kept playing it earlier today. Yup. It's all Spotify's fault.
