Long time since previous post. Here to bring another update as to what's going on recently.
I did up a new setup for my table, rearranging a few things, and got a few new things :) I think the biggest change is that I'm no longer using the small 13.3" display on my laptop. I need a bigger display for productive work, like programming, or even gaming. I know that my laptop ain't going to provide enough power to do much anyway. It it still fast enough for me with some light gaming. SSD upgrade and 8GB RAM is enough I suppose?
The display is a 27" Samsung Curved monitor. Been using it for a few weeks and I'm extremely happy with it. I can finally use the Windows snapping feature properly now, or even the new 1/4 snap. I bought additional hardware to make my monitor able to watch digital TV too, more on that once I've gotten those things set up. Even the plastic wrap for the monitor is still there :) Tried Dota and CS GO and its simply incredible on the huge display.
Another addition is the Logitech K750 Solar Keyboard. This keyboard is great too. It works off solar power and never requires a battery change. It charges when there's enough lighting, and draws power from the built in rechargeable battery when there's not enough environment light. It also works with the Logitech Unifying Receiver. I'm actually considering a new mouse too, the Logitech MX Master to be exact :P Currently using the Logitech G400 Gaming mouse. I really have no idea whether I should switch, because I need the > 2000 DPI :/
This setup should serve me quite well for 2017. If one day I decide that I need more power, I will just replace my laptop for a newer one. The system is connected to a 500GB external HDD too for backups. I do have another 2TB external drive as master backup (Files all the way from Primary school are kept in there, even the old MSN/WLM chat logs, oops)
To keep the system cool, I've also placed a external laptop fan to improve performance. I mean if you are looking for a solution to cool your laptop, never go with those fan base, instead consider an external fan.
Speaker is still the Altec Lansing 2.1. My table is not actually that big for a massive 5.1 sound setup. Still enjoying my Spotify Music on it. I think there's a slight improvement due to the audio now being transmitted digitally via HDMI instead of analog 3.5mm jack.
At the corner, I have my Choetech 6 Port Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 (QC3) enabled USB charger. You won't believe how many things on my table uses USB power. I'm actually running out of ports. The QC3 ports I only use it to charge my QC enabled Xiaomi Powerbank Pro 10000mAh. My phone (OnePlus 3) uses OnePlus's proprietary DASH charge technology, so I need a special wall adapter for it... (but 5V 4A charging is dope. 5V 1A in 2017, seriously Apple?)
Went to Malacca for CNY. The usual walk walk buy things, nothing special. Took a few photos and uploaded them above.
Note to myself: never go Sakura Buffet again!
The food not nice, and they actually hid the Salmon sashimi in the fridge, so people won't find and won't take? WTF? Overpriced AF.
Watched Kungfu Yoga, great movie as expected starring Jackie Chan :)
Company also held a CNY lunch, so above are pictures I took on that day
Took some time to add the new Android 7.1 Nougat App Shortcut feature to NRICTools. Works just like Apple's 3D Touch feature on iOS devices. Thanks Jing Hao for the screenshot and testing of the feature during development. #toopoortobuyapixel #wheresmynougat71
Nintendo/Gamefreak also released the new update for Pokemon Bank supporting the latest Pokemon Sun/Moon. Got my Mew over and above is the exclusive Z-move
Lastly, I applied a new theme that is now responsive (thanks to CSS magic, and Weebly?)
As always, take care and I'll see you soon :)
