MacLocks Security Skin for MacBook Air 13″

Sunday, 3 June 2012

Merely minutes after I got my hands on Apple’s gorgeous product —Apple fanboyism, guilty as charged— I had an epiphany. Where the hell is its Kensington security slot? Living in a country where laptop theft is rampant, I couldn’t imagine leaving my laptop out in the open without protection at all. After a cursory search, […]

Microsoft Wireless Mouse Presenter 8000

Wednesday, 5 May 2010

I bought this baby back in 2008 and still has no regrets about my purchase. I love this mouse so much and think it really worth the USD 55 price tag. Pros: Versatile. I can use it as a mouse, a presenter for Powerpoint, and a laser pointer. Quite cheap. USD 55 back then was […]

Samsung GT C6625

Thursday, 1 April 2010

Disappointed with my previous phone‘s lacklustre performance, I opted to go back to my WinMo roots. Hence, when I heard that Samsung introduced a budget WinMo phone, I quickly grabbed it. Pros: Cheap. As of the writing of this blog post, it sells at IDR 1,700,000, practically the cheapest WinMo phone. Reliable. I experienced less […]

TP-LINK TL-WR340G

Thursday, 1 April 2010

I was looking for a cheap wireless router to be used to set up a guerilla Internet Wi-Fi connection at my makeshift office when a computer store attendant recommended this China-fabricated router. It was indeed cheap, priced at IDR 230,000. After using it for about two months now, I think I have the credibility to […]

Ojeg Van Bandara

Saturday, 6 June 2009

Beberapa hari yang lalu gw sempet dua kali bolak-balik Jakarta-Pontianak. Ada kegiatan super-mendadak implementasi produk baru The Company. Anyway, bukan itu yang gw mau ceritain, tapi fakta bahwa gw sekarang lebih seneng naik ojeg kalo pulang ke rumah dari bandara. Yup. Ojeg. Udah sering liat dan ngalamin sendiri kan ditawari jasa ojeg di bandara? Ternyata […]

Review Singkat Beberapa Buku Tes Potensi Akademik

Sunday, 22 March 2009

Dua tahun ikut Tes Potensi Akademik (TPA), membuat gw punya beberapa buku soal tes itu. Dari beberapa yang gw punya itu, berikut adalah komentar dan pendapat gw soal masing-masingnya. Buku ini beberapa model soalnya nggak ada mirip-miripnya sama TPA. Lalu jawabannya pun cuma dikasih A, B, C-nya aja, nggak ada penjelasan. Not recommended! Gunarso, Arif […]

Compaq Presario CQ20-205TU

Saturday, 20 December 2008

I’ve been looking for a notebook, since I got transferred to the IT Dept and got stripped of my auditor-standard notebook. At first, I was eyeing the up-and-coming netbooks at that time. Lenovo’s ideapad S10 caught my attention. But with the increasing USD to IDR exchange rate and considering the performance factor of the Intel […]

SonyEricsson P1i

Saturday, 6 December 2008

I’ve been keeping the idea of a lightning-fast review of the things I owned lingering in my head for sometime now. I found that the conventional method of lengthy review is too much trouble for me. From now on, my reviews will consists only of a pros and cons – from my point of view, […]

Fastnet 384

Monday, 24 December 2007

I’ve written several posts previously about my Fastnet cable Internet connection, but haven’t really written a review on it. So, here goes. Several years back, I subscribed to Kabelvision – FirstMedia‘s previous name – in order to bring broadband Internet into my home. Three months into my subscription, I cancelled it due to increase in […]

Linksys WRT54GL

Sunday, 25 November 2007

The “L” in this wireless router name stands for Linux. What this means is that this baby has more memory – 4MB of flash and 16 MB of RAM to be exact – than other WRT54G models they ship today. This open a big window of various hacks and tweaks for its firmware. This thing […]
