SanDisk’s 400GB microSD card is the solution of everything !

 


SanDisk has a new record-breaking microSD coming to market, which will deliver so much storage you might be at a loss as to what to do with it all. The new 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card is the world’s highest capacity card of its type, and is ideally suited for use in Android smartphones that feature an expansion slot.

Android’s most recent versions allow you to adopt microSD-based storage as “native internal” storage, which allows you to use it to install apps, store photos and more as if you were using a built-in flash memory drive. Most recent Android devices that offer a microSD slot will support the new 400GB chip out of the box, meaning you can get your phone up to almost double what the top-end iPhone currently offers in onboard storage.

The SanDisk 400gb microSD card can hold up to 40 hours of 1080p HD video, Western Digital notes, and offers transfer speeds of up to 100mb/s. It’s also designed to comply with the A1 App Performance Class specification for flash memory, which means it can load and run apps faster when operating as adopted internal storage.

Even though it offers so much added storage, the price won’t break the bank – at $250, it’s actually very reasonable for in terms of price to storage ratio. It also comes with a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, and its already available on amazon or via SanDisk website directly and all the usual retail suspects.

Prinker Introduces Tattoos that Are Pain-Free and Non-Permanent

SketchOn’s Technology Recognized at Finland’s Slush

Launched in 2008 in Helsinki, Finland, Slush is Europe’s largest startup conference, where startup
hopefuls gather to attract investment and share information and anyone interested in startups comes
to discover the next “big thing.” Last year’s Slush, held for two days in November, drew about 1,700 startups,
800 investors, and 16,000 visitors. This startup event has given rise to some of the world’s largest mobile game
creators, including Rovio and Supercell, the creator of “Clash of Clans,” as well as a series of Fintech startups
representing Finland.

Notably, SketchOn, a Korean startup under Samsung Electronics’ in-house venture “C-Lab,” was selected
as one of the top four companies in Slush’s pitching competition last year. Of the 100 companies that pass
the competition’s preliminary round, the top 20 are selected and given a chance to pitch their products.
Among them, four finalists are selected and pitted against each other, with only one winner coming out on top.
Although, SketchOn did not emerge as the winner, it was a strong runner-up, proving that its technology rivals
that of other startups around the world.

 

Harmless, Easy-to-Erase Printed Tattoos

SketchOn has developed “Prinker,” a printer capable of printing images on human skin.
All you need to do is draw the image you want using the Prinker smartphone application and apply Prinker
to the part of your body where you want the image to be, and the image will be printed on your skin,
just like a tattoo. Creating something similar to a tattoo sticker, the biggest advantage of Prinker,
however, is that it poses no risk to human health, as it uses only cosmetics-grade color materials.
It is easy to remove as well, and lasts only about a day, unless you rub it with your hands.

Prinker has applications in a wide range of areas. It can be used at amusement parks, clubs, or stadiums
to replace paper tickets or bracelets, thereby preventing loss and helping preserve the environment.
It can also be used to draw pictures on children’s faces or bodies at amusement parks. Another interesting
application is the printing of QR codes on skin for marketing purposes.

 


CEO Lee Jong-in says that Prinker is not looking to compete in the tattoo industry; he believes that
the tattoo is an art of its own. Rather than replacing existing tattoos, Prinker is targeting those people
who are reluctant to get tattoos, due to the health risks, permanence, and pain involved.
People can enjoy Prinker’s “contemporary tattoos” at festivals, special events, or amusement parks
and then remove them and go back to normal when the fun is over.
There is also a certain “analogue-meets-digital” aspect to the device, in that it prints hand-drawn images.
Lee said, “Tattoo stickers provide a limited number of choices, and can irritate the skin and cause allergic
reactions. Also, the disadvantage of body painting is that it requires professional skill and takes a long time.”

 

Planning to Expand into the Amusement Park, Premium Club, and Sports Markets


SketchOn is expected to begin selling Prinker in earnest this year. Starting in the business-to-business
(B2B) market, the company plans to gradually target the B2C market.
The main target customers in the B2B market include premium clubs, amusement parks, and sports companies.
A version of Prinker designed for the B2C market will be launched in the second half of this year, with a price
around USD 200. With this, SketchOn aims to post sales of USD 4.37 million this year. With the market for
devices designed to print on skin expected to grow from USD 480 million in 2016 to USD 1.15 billion by 2020,
SketchOn has strong growth potential. CEO Lee Jong-in said, “I hope that Prinker will be able to position itself
as a “self-expression tool,” with which people can express themselves through images printed on their bodies.”

Happy News: The vinyl boom is about to get even boomier !


Sony Music is set to resume pressing records after nearly 30-years hiatus and operations are expected to pick back up by March 2018. The Japan record giant is opening a new record-pressing plant in response to the country’s growing consumer interest in vinyl, the Nikkei Asian Review reports.
Pressing is expected to commence in the Shizuoka Prefecture, located southwest of Tokyo. It signals the end of a nearly 30-years disappearance after Sony Music Japan initially shut down its in-house pressing operation in 1989 upon the advent of the CD.

However, as vinyl has over the last decade made a comeback worldwide, so too has the medium gained popularity in Japan; as Nikkei noted, vinyl sales in the country have “roughly octupled” from 2010 to 2016. But at the moment, Japan has only one active manufacturer, which means the demand outweighs the supply, resulting in limited new releases. This bottleneck production can also have adverse effects on independent labels and distributors, as we reported last year.

For now, Nikkei reported, Sony plan to repress “popular older songs, “mainly Japanese music to which Sony already hold the rights, as well as recent hit albums. To help cope with the high demand, Sony will also accept orders from outside labels.

One of my hobbies

 

Luggages and laundry carriers from 1950s

 

I have alway been a collector of vintage stuff, I collect vintage notebooks (diaries), vintage luggage, music boxes, stationary and sometimes I build furniture and make them look vintage and its not only that I collect them I actually utilize/use them. I don’t sell them though.

in this post I will show some of the stuff I collected.

 

 

A vintage decorative mannequin

 

Vintage radio that have an AUX socket

 

A storage cabinet with a storage box above

 

The above box is one of the most valuable stuff I got. Because it is a laundry box that belongs to a soldier who actually participated in the Second World War.

 

 

I have tons of notebooks with different desigs I try to fill them with my life story, eventually one day I will surely go. Those who will read them will know everything about me .. and enjoy reading them specially the chapter I called “The things I could not say”.

Notebooks and vintage envelopes

The leather notebook is a Japanese brand called Midori they sell hell of stationary stuff that blow any person mind with such interest. It is customizable and very practical for business. Below are pictures to demonstrate what items I bought to “build it” according to my need. Every thing inside this beautiful stuff is from the brand it self, different kind of tiny notebooks that are fixed via elastic strings, then comes a plastic sealable pocket, pen, pen holder, paper business card holder and a beautiful plastic divider that can be used as a ruler as well !

Pause Factory: A taste of Unknown perfect Coffee Roasters 

 

 

I’ve heard about a new cafe Located in the packed cafes area in Downtown Kuwait roasting its own Brazilian blend of coffee. The exterior seating and their show window is welcoming everyone to have a closer look. I kept staring at the roaster machines showed in the front window. Before deciding to give it a try, I ordered cold brew coffee and an Iced Cubano which is basically a cold latte with a syrup. It was bit pricey but worth it to kick start my early morning. Picking menus from the front counter was easy and attractive.

Sipping on a the recommended flavored medium sweet latte called Cubano was such a pleasure that got me addicted, The selection of breakfast and brunch food did wow me, it was displayed in a perfect neat way although they had huge selection of sandwiches, cookies, cakes, salads and pastary. The only small problem is that the hot food goes cold quickly (not a problem for me) a heated plate would fix this anyway. The food is presented on a wooden serving flat plate that looks exceptionally pretty. The service was Spot on for a cafe. Both the coffee and the sandwich I ordered arrive in good time and the staff was so nice and welcoming, checking up on me several times throughout my time their.

The smart interior is well suited to the growing businesses around it, and is already popular with locals for a workday coffee and surprisingly its packed with youth in the evening time. The plants, vintage grinding machines and glowing lights hanging from the ceiling are its stand-out feature that adds interest to the dark, industrial interior. I personally dislike crowded places so I never visit it in the evening. But at the morning it’s perfect for just chilling or working, as they have spectacular comfortable work stations and nice outdoor settings.

PS: This post is not a an advertisement. I post what I like.

I already reviewed one cafe, this is the second. The third and fourth are coming soon. After that I will dedicate a post to rate them all

I ended up returning every single morning before work to Pause Factory for their Cubano coffee. I am an espresso addict but had to stop drinking it to fix my insomnia issue.

Rating 8/10 just because of its high prices.

Man best friend: my dogs Chen & Chole ! 

Baby Chen
My Chow Chow Dogs named Chen and Chole Are 6 and 3 years old repectivly time has certainly gone by quickly – first I bought Chen ( he is one month older than my daughter) I decided to get Chen as a family pet and as gift for my daughter’s first birthday they basically grew together and developed an unbreakable bond. After witnessing how he had very special relationships with our big family specifically with my daughter protecting her and listen to her orders (he was never trained).

I realized that I must get him a female so I can breed them, not for any commercial use. But Sadly dogs life span is short, and I definitely want to have puppies with his blood flowing in their vains.

Baby Chloe
Beside that, since Chole lived with Chen for three years she became exactly like him behavior wise. Positive, social, loving, so friendly and above all loving us unconditionally.

True love
Chows have a bad reputation of being aggressive, but they are not, its all about how you raise them and treat them. They are stubborn but if you treat them right they would do anything to please you.

My advice to any person who wants to own a chow chow is to socialize them with kids from the puppy early age, also pick a pure breed of them.

The best shop in this country that sells the best breeds at convenient prices (the lowest in town) can be found on instagram : @q8_puppy .

Here are a few photos taken over the years.
