Hardware Review – Homido Virtual Reality Headset

Homido is 100% 3D compatible, allowing you to watch your favorite 3D movies. The binocular vision mode of the headset and the two VR lenses offer a perfect stereoscopic experience.

Perfect? that might be debatable but good fun, certainly.


Notice Me Senpai #NSFW

For some reason my kid loves this thing… its totally inappropriate and #NSFW (See what I did there, don’t open this at work or while your mom or moms mom is watching.)


Hardware Review – Official Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Qi Wireless Charging Kit

51026Keeping my Note 4 charged is a never ending battle. Coming from a Sony Xperia Z series means I’m used to 4 days battery life and the Note 4’s impressive screen real estate and snappy processing capabilities reduce that to a day at best. Enter the Wireless charging solution, and what a solution it is. I scored an Official Samsung Note 4 Qi kit from Mobilezapp and I can say I’m very pleased.


Elite Dangerous is Meta – Meta Complex, Meta Fun

Meta (from the Greek preposition and prefix meta- (μετά-) meaning “after”, or “beyond”) is a prefix used in English to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter.

Not getting any younger.

14 - 1Life was easier when I was a kid. We had Were’s wally, a collection books where you had to find the strange creepy uncle looking fella with a camera and the first real cool video game was where in the world is Carmen Dandiego.

What we didn’t have was a 4 year old telling dad he likes the rainbow radio channel in GTA 5. That’s the rap channel for the record. I have failed as a parent.

Now I know my child likes rap I don’t know what to do. I was considering not letting him watch me play GTA 5 but that seemed a little radical.


Sailor Moon is still Funny

Watching all the sailor Moon Transition with my oldest daughter was great fun. Just never gets old.


Some people play games for fun, others want a challenge.

Personally I hate fun and challange is for weaklings. Bring on Dark Souls 2 (Which for the record, is much easier than dark souls and apparently easier than demon souls.)


Just for a moment lets be serious – about googly eyes.

It’s been about 4 hours of data collation and systems management. Now it’s time for a youtube break.


TPP – Why arent Australian’s annoyed?

I’m always astounded by how little interest Australia takes in technology.

As a country we are uniquely situated to not only pump resources into new technologies but take advantage of said technologies. With recent backlash regarding the lackluster FTTN #FRAUDBAND roll out of fiber across the country to the sudden and almost impromptu embracing of regional schools and technical teaching aids such as tablets and electronic whiteboards it was starting to look like Australian’s were ‘getting’ it.

However the TPP is a clear sign we don’t ‘get’ it. In fact our bumbling, yokel conservative ‘well I don’t know bout that there thingy but I likes me some porn’ approach to the internet is going to leave the whole world reeling. Is that you, or someone you know more interested in how fast and free they can download illegal movies or pornography than securing the internet as a resource for the generations to come. Shame on you.
