Would I buy it again: Note 8

The Note 8, would I buy it again? Am I keeping it? And why ...


There are a lot of things I love about the Note 8, the screen is amazing, it's amazingly easy to hold in one hand for a phone with a 6.3-inch screen and it's a very smooth version of Android despite its Touchwiz roots... This will also be the first of an ongoing series of mini tech reviews, shorter reviews summarizing if I would get whatever product again... so here goes, would I get the Note 8 again and did I keep it for my daily life?

Maybe...but probably not...

I did not keep this device as my daily device or even use it for that long due to one glaring issue... If you don't find this to be an issue then this is a great phone? If you do then it is something very difficult to overlook because, despite all of its positives, great camera, great screen, smooth experience ... the fingerprint scanners placement is utterly terrible, the single most unintuitive place I could imagine. I am constantly placing my finge…

This is healthy...No this is...

For years I've been trying to eat healthy with self admitted terrible success... And this post is not to blame anyone, because honestly I have no one to blame but myself for my mostly poor eating habits.

What this is about, is the frustration of eating "healthy"... At my most recent count I believe there is approximately twelve million different diets or ideas on how to "eat healthy"... about 3 times as many as there are actual food items in existence! For every food item it seems there is at least one diet, book or person saying it is good, and at least one saying it is not good...Or at least this is how it feels sometimes.

So my question is this, how do you choose what is actually good, how do you move past the confusion? I have read so many different books and theories, all of which sound so great while reading them, until you read the next one that is either a slight variation (at best) or the complete opposite of what you just read... and of course is just…

Do we really need to pick just one thing to be good at? Just one thing to be our "true calling"? A pretty interesting Ted Talk...

Most Anticipated: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Image
This is going to be a new series on my blog of things that I am anticipating most. This could be products, movies, books and pretty much anything else that is coming out. First up, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. 


Uncharted 4 is the much anticipated Playstation 4 follow up to the Uncharted Series on Playstation 3. It appears that it will be faster, bigger and better than the greatness that was the first three games in this series. Using all the power of the PS4 to make it even more fun. This of course is based only on trailers and gameplay videos (doubt me, check out the video below), so only time will truly tell if they manage to fulfill the promise that they seem to be offering!



So why should you play this game, or the first three, if you haven't already played those? In short, this is a modern day Indiana Jones game in a sleek, fun and well made video game. The originals push the PS3 to it’s limits when it comes to graphics and the gameplay is well done and easy to pick up. The …

Funko Pop! Review: S.H.I.E.L.D - Agent Coulson

Image
I have a confession to make... I absolutely love Funko's Pop collection! I really want to buy them all and especially the Marvel series. Because of these feelings I have decided that I am going to begin reviewing them as an excuse to buy as many of them as I can.


I'm going to start with the one that brought me into my current fascination with them, S.H.I.E.L.D - Agent Coulson.

Anyone who has watched The Avengers or Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D knows how awesome Agent Coulson is and his Pop bobblehead is no different. From his cool shades to his S.H.I.E.L.D suite, with name badge and tie of course, it's just a really neat little toy!

If you want buy Agent Coulson, feel free to use my Amazon Affiliates Link.

What toy collection have you found yourself unable to avoid buying?
