Geo Challenge is a facebook game application by PlayFish that challenges your knowledge about the world. It is a very fun game and such a useful time waster since by playing this game, you know many things that you didn't know before. This game is really easy to find. Simply log in to your facebook, and then search 'Geo Challenge'. There will be a facebook page of this game application and just click 'go to app', then be ready to play it!.
This game is competitive since your score will be compared with scores of your friends on facebook who also play this game. Every score has its own meaning, for example, if you successfully got approximately 3500 for a score, it means that you will get a 'bus driver' bedge, with some comments writen. If you only successfully got 3500 for your score, the comment will be : "You have decent local knowledge, but you stick to the same routes and areas..", something like that. It is very funny though. However, you can collect until 37000 or more for the score.
This game is divided into 4 rounds. The first round is called Suitcase Shuffle. In this round you will be challenged with your knowledge of Flags of countries from all over the world. Why is it called Suitcase Shuffle ?. Because the flags will be on the suitcase, and when the name of the country appears, we need to click on the suitcase on which the flag is attached. For example, I read the word United Kingdom, then I should quickly click on the suitcase on which the flag of United Kingdom is attached. As easy as that. I didn't find any difficulties playing this game, but I admit that I don't know the whole flags of countries all over the world, so I still met some troubles in this round. But if you play it frequently, I am able to ensure you that you can get a much better score.
The second round is called 'Map Mayhem'. This is much harder than the previous round I think. In this round, the picture of some different shapes will appear, it will be unfamiliar thing to see at the first time, but after seconds, the whole picture will appear and in this moment we will know that actually those pictures are the map of some countries. All we have to do is guessing what country that is. If we like to see the map, we will notice what countries those pictures are. But again, if we play this game more than once, I am sure, for the next play, we're gonna remember more shapes and guess the pictures more often.
The third round is called 'City Blitz'. I like this round the most compared with other rounds. In this round you will be shown the map of the world. Then the name of a city will appear one by one, and all you have to do is clicking the part in which this city is. For example, I was asked 'London', so all I have to do is click the part of that map where United Kingdom is. As simple as that. I got a highest score in this round. But wait until you see the last round.
The last but not least round is 'Landmark Loco'. This is also interesting part of this game. You need to know some famous landmarks all over the globe and show where they are located. At the first time you will be shown a map of the world, then when a picture of a landmark is shown, you have to click the landmark's location. For example, you are shown a London Eye, then all you have to do is click 'London'.
According to me, this game application is a very good time waster. When the first time I tried this application, I got a low score and if I compared with my firends' score, mine was the lowest. But after playing this game several times, I got a higher score, even almost the highest. From this game also, my knowledge about the world is developed significantly. I simply love this, this game is just uber cool!!.
If you plan to backpack to some places around South East Asia, staying in Khao San Road at least 3 days is a must. Three days are even not enough for me. Khao San Road is located in the center of Bangkok city and is actually all backpackers' favorite place. The location of Khao San Road is strategic from which the most famous places of Bangkok like Grand Palace and Thai National Museum are reachable by walking. If you don't really feel like walking, you can go to those places by Taxi, tuk tuk (this is a very unique public transportation in Bangkok), or even river express. If you want to ride tuk tuk, you have to notice the price that is offered by the driver, because it can be way so expensive especially when they recognize us a tourist. Sometimes, using Taxi is far cheaper than tuk tuk, and river express can be the cheapest of all those transportations.
Along Khao San road, we can find many cheap accomodations to stay. This is one of reasons why all backpackers love to stay here. The price approximately starts from £4, you can definitely choose the one that is suitable with your budget. If you decide to choose the cheapest one, you must be fine with getting a bit grubby and stink room, but comfortable rooms with everything appropriate are very easy to get as well, and to get them, we only need to pay a little more.
I really love the crowd there. You can walk along the road since it only takes munites for you to walk from one end to the other one. Along the street, restaurants with different kind of foods (western or eastern foods) and very cheap drinks are available. We have plenty choices of Bars with an enchant atmosphere, and still, with a cheap price as well. It will be so easy for you to find many night clubs, but some night clubs require you to pay around 300 baht and they will check your ID card as well. For local people, it is free anyway.
If you want to feel the real athmosphere of Bangkok and feel its culture as well, Khao San Road is still a right choice to stay. Special souvenirs of Thailand are sold there just in the sides of the road. Sometimes local people will come to you to offer some unique souvenirs. Children who walk around the street to sell some souvenirs are able to speak english. It seems like she has learnt a lot from all tourist in Khao San Road. If you want to try an original Thai food, you are able to find a delcious noodle. They offer three kinds of noodle, and we can choose one of them. (like when we want to choose a pasta). It is served traditionally and quite delicious. You have to taste it at least once in a life time. But you have to be careful because it is quite spicy.
I felt so lucky because I had a chance to visit Khao San Road in the World Cup night, and I felt a very great crowd of the final of World Cup last year when Spain finally brought the cup home. It was awesome. Every restaurants with big screens are full already since 6 pm. I and my friends finally decided to sit in one of the restaurant which sold a very cheap beer. I only paid 50 baht for one small bottle of beer. One interesting drink that took my attention was a drink served in a bucket. It was for around four people, they usually give straws according to numbers of people that order. It costed only 200 baht. My favorite one was Sang Som, it is one of traditional alcohol of Thailand. They mix Sang Som with some soft drinks because it is too much strong. I could order over and over again and even I bought some Sang Som from Duty free back home.
I really love the crowd of Khao San Road. Many nationalities are there, and it seems like a place that never sleep. I could stay awake there until the morning when a sunshine finally came and I could find people were still staying there. I love the safety of this place as well. I had been assisted when I was kind of lost there by the Thai Tourist Police which is located around the road.
The facilities here are just awesome. You can easily find trustworthy money changers and if you need to contact your family of friends and need an internet connection, Internet Cafes are available along the street. If you are really craving for some foods like McD, KFC, Burger King and Pizaa Hut, just walk in minutes, and order them since they are also available around Khao San Road.
What would you do to protect your precious thing?. I mean like literally protect it?. Cover it, especially when the thing is an electronic thing, and it is your smart phone. This is my first time to own a blackberry. At the first time, I didn't really feel like having a blackberry, but after I decided to own it because of several reasons, I just realized how precious it is. It is absolutely advanced and sophisticated, and knowing the fact that it is absolutely useful and helps me a lot, I simply fall in love with it and always want to protect it. So I decided to buy a silicone case for my blackberry. I took a quite long time to decide what color that fits my phone. I didn't bring lots of money that time, so I only had to choose one of them. Since my blackberry is white, I finally decided to choose the black silicone that fits my blackberry a lot. It looks contrast and so nice.
On a blackberry, you will see seven dots in the back side which combine to form a Blackberry logo, and those dots were made from alumunium and were easily dettached if you can't keep your blackberry well. So the only way to protect it, is covering your blackberry. This was also one of reasons why I thought I really needed to buy a blackberry silicone. I had lost one of dots of Blackberry logo, and I don't want to loose the rest. This logo just give a sense of elegance, don't you think?.
One of my friend had told me that she had a problem with her blackberry cover. The cover doesn't have a hole for the headset and charger. She had lost it for once she wanted to listen to the music somewhere, she had to take it off, then she forgot where she put it. It happened because it doesn't have a hole for headset and charger. It also will happen whenever you want to charge it. But it definitely doesn't happen with this silicone, since it has two holes for headset and charger. Beside holes for those, it provides hole for the speaker, so it wont affect the quality of the sound.
It really fully covers your blackberry so you don't have to worry when it falls down somewhere. Any bumps won't harm your blackberry since the protection is great. But even if it fully covers your phone, it wont bother your typing a messege or your view of the screen. It doesn't cover the keypad and screen area. I love the black color of this silicone, because it protects my blackberry from dirt. I always find difficulties with my phone's casing since it is white and easily be dirty. But it protects mine. I almost don't see the disadvantages of this silicone, but sometimes your blackberry looks less elegant without a blackberry logo. When you use this silicone, you must be fine with it covering your blackberry logo.
tumblr.com is really suitable for you who desire to have a personal blog. You may sign up to several blog sites that you have known. Many people have signed up as well, but they tend to only write their feeling down, while when we want to attach other files like photos, music, or videos, sometimes other blog sites come with a very complicated way. It wont happen with tumblr. We can create our blog in a very easy way, I mean like very easy. Just sign yourself up, then tell your feeling to the world by tumblr. Don't worry it is a very simple sign-up.
After go to tumblr.com, choose a sign up botton and follow the instruction. These are only three steps to start blogging ; enter your email address, password that you want to use whenever you log in, and the name that you choose to be shown in your blog URL, then fill in the security question, and simply declare that you are a human (funny thing I saw when I signed up :p ), voila ! your brand new blog is ready to use!
After this, tumblr will suggest you to costumize your blog, and again, you will not find difficulties here. Everything is simple and great!. First, tumblr will ask you to fill the box of your tumblr tittle and after your blog is ready, this name will appear as the header, and then tumblr will also let you to upload your picture, don't forget to say cheese in your photo. Then you can also write the description of your blog. All of the above that I mentioned are included in Info of Costumize section. In this section, you can change the url whenever you want. As simple as that.
Now start to decorate your blog. In some blog sites, perhaps you found many difficulties in editing the layout of the blog. You need to be expert in HTML if you want to get a great result, perfectly like what you want. Or you need to search the themes in google first, then grab the code, and so on. But in tumblr, the themes are already available in themes section. The only one thing you need to do is only to choose one of them (seriously, all of them are fascinating), then apply the theme. It doesnt mean that you can't browse more themes or use HTML, though. You are perfectly able to do that as well. But for the beginners, especially for them who are not really into websites, this themes section definitely helps.
In the appearance section, you can explore more to edit your blog. It is, again, so simple. The best thing about tumblr is that we can directly connect your post to your twitter and facebook, just go to services section. It is connected automatically, so whenever you publish your post, it will also appear in your twitter timeline, and facebook page. But it is still your choice anyway. Tumblr understands your feeling that sometimes not all posts are needed to be published, so after you post something, tumblr will ask you whether you want it to published or not.
Tumblr works almost like twitter. We can follow people, so that their posts will be shown in our dashboard, and so do people, they can follow us so that our posts will be shown in theirs. And like twitter again, if we like or agree with our friends post, we can reblog it, and this post will be also appear in our tumblr page. The posts, mostly, not only a writing. The posting can be text, photos, quote, link, chat, audio, video and each of them will be shown differently based on what kind of post they will be. It is just a simple way to blog your heart out through your pictures, writings, your own quote, videos, or music. You don't need to go to another link to upload your video or photos. It is just a step.
It is one of my painkiller. Whenever I get bored, or sad, or terrible, everything I need is writing, writing my heart out. I totally don't agree to write something personal in twitter since it is not that private. But after having a tumblr acount, I exactly know what I must do to kill the boredom, to heal the sadness. I am not afraid about privacy, I can choose whether I want to publish it on twitter or facebook or not. And if you one of big fans of photography, it is a must to have tumblr, since most people post beyond great pictures from all over the world on their tumblr page. excellent !!!!
This application of Blackberry is my most favorite one. BlackBerry Messenger comes with lots of features which definitely ease you to communicate. When you have one, I can guarantee you will prefer to reply the messege from BBM rather than your SMS messeges. Imagine when you are communicating with people very easily (like chating on Yahoo Messenger or MSN) but it is possible to be connected everywhere and everytime. Perhaps you will say that Yahoo Messenger and MSN will do so if we are connected with BlackBerry connection and you are not wrong but I'd still prefer to use BlackBerry Messenger, though. The reason is simply because you don't need to sign in, it will automatically be on if you are connected with BlackBerry Messenger connection, and it also means when you suddenly lose your signal, and when you get the signal back, you don't have to sign in again.
You can download BlackBerry Messenger right in your Blackberry. Go to Application World and search it and the download won't last that long. It only needs a quite short time if your connection is good. After that, you will have a BBM PIN. It has a quite same system like MSN or YM. You need to add your friend and to have your friend on your BBM list, you have to invite them by clicking a BlackBerry button and chose 'invite contact', then type down your friend's PIN. After she/he accept you, you can start a very interesting conversation.
I really like using BBM and especially I really like it to know that most of my friends use it as well. It eases us to communicate, to share stories, to exchange the file in a very easy and cheap way!. It is tremendously fun! I can write almost everything because I don't need to worry about the characters. Sometimes, I need to make a messege short because an SMS only provide 160 characters per one SMS. Which means that if I need to talk a little more, I need to double pay it. But using a BBM is way so cheap. I can write everything, because it is FREE as long as your BlackBerry connection is on. I can easily exchange songs, pictures, video, voice notes and many other documents very easily. How could I ask for more ?.
It is also so interesting because we can see our contacts' updates when they change their pictures or status. It absolutely makes me even closer to them. But if you think it is not neccesarry to see the recent updates, just go to Option, chose Recent Updates, and you will see Show Recent Updates, simply change the number into none, and you will no longer get the recent updates. This is another interesting fact about BBM that any IMs don't do. After you have typed the messege, then you enter it, you wiil see a word beside your messege. It will be either D or R. D means the message is already delivered but the messege receiver has not read it yet, and R means the messege receiver has read it. You can definitely complain if your boy/girlfriend has not texted you back when it turns R !
Another cool side of BlackBerry is that I can post what I am currently listening in my BlackBerry to my status updates. I love listening to the music, almost everywhere and everytime, I really depend on my music player of BlackBerry and Earphone to listen to the music. And I am able to show people in my BlackBerry contacts what I am listening to. To do the same, simply go to your profile setting on which you can change the photos, name, and status, then bellow, you will see 'show What I'm Listening to'.
It works in all over the world. I remember when I got much difficulties when I wanted to communicate with my family or friends when I was abroad. Now, even though we are far apart, it seems so near because of this BBM. I remember that before using it, I needed to turn on my laptop, searched for the internet connection to get in touch with my family when I was abroad. If I was not lucky, I would see my family offline so we finally couldn't talk. But after using this BBM, I can contact my family everywhere and everytime, tell them the real situation by exchanging the picture or video very easily, and it is really a madecine of my homesickness. Such a lovely application I have here.
Music and its genre should be the all-time favorite topic to be discussed by all music lovers all over the world. To be honest, as a music lover, I love spending my time sharing recommended artists or searching its mutual artists, with people around me who have the same taste of music. Well, my musics are including british pop, Icelandic, post-rock, ambient, shoegaze, folk, electropop, reggae, chillout, and so on. I really love talking with people who actually have the same taste of music, so we can share the recommended songs and artists. If you feel like me, and don't have an account yet, then go sign up immediately.
Last.fm is a radio online which enable you to hear your favorite music as well as the recommended songs that last.fm thinks fit you. It enables you to have a social network as well. You can add people as your friend, they also are able to see your music, vice versa. What a fun way to enjoy the music. It is one of my most favorite websites ever. How to sign up and become a member?. It is just two minutes to new musics!. First, open last.fm, then chose 'start your profile'. Fill in the blanks as usual, like the first time you sign up to other social sites. After that, just activate your account by opening your email address, then start with the new music in your taste.
The first time you are welcomed in Last.fm, you will be asked to write down your favorite artists as many as you can, separated with commas, don't forget to click on save button so last.fm can analyze groups of your artists which are writen as tags in the site. It helps you to be given the recommendations of other artists that are similiar to your taste. Cool, isn't it?. You can directly listen to the recommended songs from last.fm radio. If you forgot to add one of your favorite artists that are currently played on your iTunes, don't worry, this is another brilliant thing about this site ; simply download the last.fm scrobbler, click on its botton bellow, follow the instruction, then you will have an application which records what your iTunes plays into your last.fm profile. So your friends on last.fm will notice what songs you are playing at the moment.
If you open others' profile page, you can see their profile picture, personal information, top artists, the artists that are played the most, the artists that are currently played, and the compatibility. The compability could be very low, low, medium, high, very high, and super. If you have many mutual artists with the same tags, your compability with the person whose page you see will be super. It's way so fun.
When you open the srobbler, in the small window you can see the explanation about the artists, the origins, the genre, the members, and so on when that music is being played.
I have been using last.fm for more than two years and I never get bored to play with it. Now I have more than 500 artists in my library that have been played both from my iTunes and last.fm radio, and more than 200 friends from all over the world to share the music with. I know what artists people I have a crush on like, I know my friends' song list on their iTunes, and I can simply share mine with them as well. I know more about the artists that are similiar with my favorite artists. If you are definitely into music, what are you waiting for ?.
I felt a bit miserable when I got my blackberry charger broken after lending it to one of my friends. I didn't exactly know which part or which element in my charger that was broken, but it didn't charge my blackberry. Perhaps it was the wire that's broken, but I was not sure. So I decided to buy the new one. Blackberry is a very important daily thing for social network addict or for those whose life really depends on connection. I need to have my blackberry on everytime since I need to be connected by email. And I do my jobs mostly by using a blackberry. I call it my better half anyway. :p so I realized I desperately needed to buy a new charger. I couldn't only depend on USB which is connected to the laptop or PC to charge it.
My previous blackberry charger only had one removable adaptor, which only fits with the socket in my country. Then I decided to go to the electronic store to buy a new one, and I was offered a blackberry travel charger, which has three different removable adaptors which fit international sockets. I was so interested, since by chance, not very long after my buying a new charger, I had to go abroad to attend a student exchange. I was so excited and bought it immediately. In that time I knew, that my choice was right. The price was affordable as well.
The original charger given in the box of my Blackberry only comes with one removable adaptor. But I got the new one which comes with three different adaptors. The first is the one with three pronged plugs, and the others with two pronged plugs. It is very useful, since I didn't have any difficulties when I go abroad for student exchange, I still had my blackberry on everytime. One of my friend didn't charge his phone in the airport when we just arrived, since he didn't also bring an international adaptor. I could charge it directly because I got the travel charger, just chose one of those adaptors of the charger that fit. I was still connected whereever I am and it was so cool.
I really consider it worth buying. With a cheap price, it will definitely help you to make sure that your blackberry is fully charged and help you get connected always, everytime and everywhere, no matter what country you are in. It is also so easy to bring, it is light and really fit in your travel bag. You can buy this travel charger with approximately £8. Of course it is not that expensive for the thing that gives you benefits.
One of my reason to buy a blackberry was because in Blackberry I could have all compiled. This means that I can do everything just with that one simple little smartphone. The very important condition the phone I own must have is that it can play a music. I depend on music. Whenever and wherever I go, I must listen to the musics. It is not a big deal for me to travel out of country alone as long as I have something to listen, like a music player. You may say that I should have prefered to buy mp3, mp4 or even an iPod to listen to, but I think it would be much more simple to have it in one gadget, so I wouldn't have to think hard of one gadget when I am using the other one. In blackberry, prosperously I can have all of them. It eases me to communicate and connect everytime as well as listen to the music everywhere and everytime I get bored.
For that reason, in my pocket or my bag, I never leave my blackberry alone, but with this little 'mate', fonerize skullhead earphones. They are just like a bestfriend that can't be set apart (I actually made them not to be :p). But seriously, everytime I forget to bring this earphone, I just spontaneously consider my Blackberry just somewhat useless. They just complete each other since listening to the musics in my Blackberry seems to be the important part of my days. In the class waiting for my lecturer, on the way back home, walking or everything, I will always make sure my Blackberry music player is on.
So far, this earphone never disappoint me. I got it in one package coming together with the phone. This earphone is tremendously light as described. It is elegant with its black colour which matches perfectly with my white phone. If you think you will have a trouble with its weight since it is so light, and you will not notice if it falls down somewhere when you use it while walking or jogging, don't worry because this earphone actually has a clip that can sticks to your collar, T-shirt, or your pocket so it will stay right there. The clip is substantively removable, so if you think it just doesn't fit your earphone whatsoever, you can remove it and just put it away. But if you think this clip will be so useful, use it, for sure. What I wrote just now are the pluses. Another plus that I can find from this earphone is the shape of it. It perfectly fits my ears and produce perfect sounds as well. Some earphone doesn't fit well so that I have to make it stayed as it should be everytime and it definitely bothers my comfort to listen to musics. In point of fact, some earphone I previoulsy had hurt my ear. I don't understand if this earphones had some elements that possibly hurt both my ears or what, but, yes it hurt. But using this earphone is so enjoyable that I could leave my earphone stayed there in the whole night while I am sleeping.
Now move to the negatives. According to me, the design of back side of the earphone is not a good idea. The alumunium parts which are shaped sharply, well personally, are just not good and ruin the whole design. In my opinion it would be whole lot better if it doesn't have such kind of shapes. Besides, just want to share my experience, the rubbers covering the earphones of mine are detached for the second times so I no longer have a chance to replace it with the new one since the first time I bought this blackberry, I only got one extra set of rubbers to cover the earphone. You have to take a very good care of it, it easily gets detached.
But over all, I really like this earphone. Not only because of its elegant design, but also its sound quality.
This Nokia communicator is tremendously suitable for them who need to work everywhere, but even so, this communicator never lose its elegance to be held everywhere you go. I personally like its shape. You might think it will be a waste of time to hold this big phone and should at once open the slide to use the PDA side to simply write a simple "ok" to reply an sms or even merely make a call. Using this phone is practically easy and simple. If you are in a hurry and really need to text or make a call, you don't need to open the slide. Use the front side of the phone when slide is closed. It works like a usual phone, with usual keypad to use. I so much like this idea anyway. What else can we do besides texting on SMS and make a call?. Of course you can do anything else like reading a coming email, but to reply you need to open the slide. The system is different from the former communicator which is much alike ; 9210, but in some aspects, they are alike though.
Here I tell you the pluses and minuses based on my experience using this mini-PC phone :
Let me begin with the pluses. I really like the keypad of the PDA side. It is so much like the keyboard of my PC which facilitate me to write a long document with plenty characters so easily. When I got this communicator, I was not old enough to have a work, like, the real work. I was just a student when the first time I had it. But I used this phone to write my story, so everytime and everywhere I got a sudden inspiration, I wrote it down into a story right away. So I thanked this communicator which enable me to save documents on which thousands characters are written. If you think the keypads are just adjacent that is hard to use, it is surprisingly not. I feel comfortable typing down my stories, I could pass most of times away to write my stories down.
Another plus is its memory. It has a 80 MB built-in memory which provide me such a big space to save everything from words documents, photos, or musics. It is supported with additional memory with MultiMediaCard (MMC). You can save every single files in your phone and what will happen if you forget in which folder you saved a file when you try to find it?. Don't be afraid because it works definitely like a computer. Just type the file name down, wait a moment and let this little one search the file. I am able to say that this communicator is comfortably compatible with computer.
I like to reach the hotspot area with my phone. Everytime I recommend a place to have a lunch or dinner, I will prefer places which provide WiFi, because I can have fun with my phone. It catches a very good connection that you will not see the 'loading' line moves so slowly. I only needed approximately 1 minute to open one website. Besides it has a very progressive web browser that make you comfortable to browse. It is supported with WiFi, EDGE, and bluetooth. It really ease you to do everything.
This is the first communicator with an integrated camera. I always love its remarkable functions and I love it much more because I can capture everything, even the camera is not that good.
Now move to the minuses. As long as I used this phone, I could hardly find the minuses, well, there are some, but I think they are not that big. First, due to its size, sometimes I couldn't decide to put it in my pocket, especially when I used a very tight jeans. I prefered to put it in my bag and felt troubled when it rang because I had to search for it in my bag, and when I finally found it, it had stopped ringing. Another minus is that this phone doesn't vibrate when calls or texts come. If I was constrained to put it deep in my bag because I was not able to put it in my pocket, and I forgot to turn the volume into the highest level, then it will be so possible to have more than 20 missed calls or 35 messages unread for I couldn't notice anything.
But if you decide to own this communicator, you have to promise yourself up front to take a really good care of it. I think I didn't, because now I have its screen almost detached due to the fact that I always have the screen widely opened.
But really, if you take a really good care of it, you will enjoy each extraordinary experiences using it. This NOKIA 9500i is just worth the price you pay.
Well, to be honest, I used to be a Blackberry hater. It was because I thought Blackberry is just too much. It makes people keep talking every single times on twitter or other social networks, and I can't say anything but, please get a life people, your life is not only around a blackberry. At the first place, I hate blackberry because it made people even forget that they are on dinner together with their relatives, friends, even girlfriend/boyfriend, or in the high school reunion, or even in a meeting. They keep staring at their blackberry. I thought that Blackberry has successfully seized people's care and attention, well, including my closest friends and even boyfriend. But then not a long time from tha, I made a hard decision to buy one since I need to get connected with email everythime for my work and highly recommeded suggetion comes to this smart phone. Then I buy it.
It was kind of a sudded to buy this smart phone which means that my budget was not that high. So I prefer to buy the cheapest one, then Blackberry Curve 8520 was finally my choice. It is actually the cheapest of all. I bought it for approximately $250, and it was including some application on it. I choose the white one from all options of purple, soft blue, black, and violet. Then I suddenly thought that this phone is absolutely fashionable. I kept staring at the colors because they are so cute with the colors, but I choose white, not only because white is a neutral color that I can fix with any other colors, but also because the white one created the sense of feminine, sweetness, and elegance. This phone is so easy to use. With the buttons of call, blackberry, back and end call, right underneath the screen, and the trackpad to control the directions. Well, I think trackpad is one of the strength of this phone. I had a thought in my mind before I bought a blackberry that I would buy the one with trackpad. The reason is because I had enough to see all of my friends got suffered with the trackball of their Blackberry that always troubled. Sometimes the trackball was stuck, couldnt make any movement, so they were not able to scroll it down, up, left or right. I just had enough to see them complaining about this. So the solution is, they use an oil on it, then scroll it. It happened because it is dirty inside it, so we need something to shove it away. But it's better not to experience it at all. It is surely a problem. Thanks God I have this Curve 8250, I enjoy every single time using this without any scrolling problems.
I like its QWERTY keypad especially when it comes to chatting. Qwerty Keypad is actually the keypad which resemble the keyboard of your laptop. It no longer needs more time to push the button more than once like the usual phone keypad. It takes faster and easier especially when you chat which brings you about typing intensely. It was awesome. The design is so simple yet sophisticated.
I can easily download many application to my blackberry and it's awesome. Now I can have a notification directly of who mention me on twitter by having an Ubertwitter application (this is the most common) or twitter for blackberry, who write me a wall on facebook by downloading Facebook for Blackberry application, accessing tumblr by tumblr for balckberry application, or 4square application. For me they are awesome, that could make me eat my word. I said that I was upset having my closest people have their own time with their Blackberry when they are with me, now I am more like that too.lol. The most important reason why I really like this phone, is because I can get direct notification of emails. That is the only one reason why I decided to buy Blackberry up front. Because I have to be updated of the emails that come to my account and get connected with people everytime by email and yes, this curve 8250 helps me a lot. I can easily read an email, reply it immediately, even download the attachment, and send files via email as well. It is cool.
My works demand me to be always able to send an attachment of PDF file or Words file, and also receive it. Thanks God I have this phone. Now I am able to receive the PDF file via email, read it directly from the phone, forward it, or send another file. It is as easy as that. I only took not more than a minute for that. This is really smart smart-phone. Since you can save almost everything in your blackberry, from photos, video, important documents, or others, you dont have to be worried of people's ignorance of your files, because you can lock your blakberry. It demands a password before you can operate your blackberry. Cool, isnt it ?
Since I can directly upload my pictures to Facebook account or twitter, now I love to capture everything in my blackberry. It has a 2.0 MP.It captures objects clearly in the day light with enough light of course. But if you capture in quite dark room, the result is not that good. But it is normal for a 2.0 MP camera, isn't it?. It also happen to its video.
Blackberry really helps me in many aspects. It has cool applications, reminder, organizer, browser that enables me to access almost eerything in every sites. If I dont have enough credit to access websites, I simply need to go to the WIFI area since this blackberry is completed with a WIFI feature, then here we go, we can access the sites easily. I also love its music player. Because this phone has enough memory capacity to save my favorite songs, so I can listen to them almost everywhere and everytime, and it doesn't take up the battery. But there is also a weakness of it. It has a very weak signal of GPS. Once I travelled by motorcycle and really had no idea about the direction, so I decided to use the GPS in my blackberry. But then it doesn't show the direction clearly, and I really dont recommend you to use the GPS in this Blackberry if you really get lost.
But so far, it is such a very good choice for me. It makes my life easier, more fun, and more amazing. Well I can eat my word again that I really hate people who use Blackberry, because now, I should ask for appologize to Blackberry and say thanks for everything. It helps me to send important documents in only 2 minutes, it helps me to do a sudden assignment and enabled me to do it on my way to Campus, and also help me to have such a fun social life, reconnect me with my old friends.
I just got this book from a friend of mine and the first impression of this book is just another thick theoretical book that I will not read. But after having a spare time and trying to look the first page of the book, I immediately knew that this book would take me to some solutions for troubles happened between a girl and a boy in a relationship. Recognizing how my relationship with my boyfriend becomes more terrible each day, I decided to continue to the next page, then voila, this book just successfully made me want to run over my boyfriend and hug him for troubles we had argued just right in the 10th page.
Generally, this book is about biological differences males and females have and how the differences influence their brain workings which affect their behaviour. This is so smart to relate left and right brains of males and females to their behaviour, so that we can see the reasons why most of males do this or that, vice versa. For example, this book tells us that males have a better ability in using their right brain which is related to spatial things and enable them to be more reliable in mathematic, noticing 3D pictures, and other spatial job, than any women. Whereas the woman are more able to use their left brain which is related to the ability of communicating and using the language. This makes the women are more expert in speaking than a men. The author of the book also mentioned their research in a very clear data which they got from all over the world ; another reason why this book is interesting for me. This is how this book works. The author want to take problems we have in the relationship to the surface and solve it with the scientific theory of men and women through some accurate researches. This is one kind of a book that makes me nodding my head, agreeing with all facts and illustration written there because they are real, really happen in our life.
One day I had a vacation with my boyfriend to Bali, one of the most famous island in Indonesia. We stayed there for a week and travelled around the island. We visited many places by motocycle which is the best choice to travelling there. We didn't know the navigation from one place to another so we decided to use a map. While he was driving, I was charged to read the map and tell him when to turn right or left. I felt so dumb that I didn't even know where we were. I didn't know how to imagine the stripes on the map as the real road we were in. I couldn't explain anything to my boyfriend and just told him that I didn't understand how to read it. My boyfriend was so upset by then and shout at me how stupid I was being not able to read that simple map. Then I didn't say anything but crying and definitely thought that he didn't love me anymore. This case probably has happened to you. You felt like the most stupid girl in the world and grumbling how your boyfriend didn't understand and perhaps didn't love you anymore. But trust me, it will not happen to you anymore right after you and your boyfriend read this book. In this book, the fact that women have lack of the ability to use their right brain to work on something spatial is clearly explained by some data and researches. For that reason, it is proved that women tend to be poor in something related to reading map.
I love to speak my heart out especially when I get many things troubled in my head. I don't know why but I can consider it much better when those things are spoken, all of them. One day I had a problem with my lecturer who randomly gave a score to me and it really ruined my mood. I really thought I need someone to talk to, about this problem, then I went to my boyfriend to tell all of them. Nothing I got but the straight face, small nod, and any solution that surely I didn't want to hear. From that time, I decided not to talk with my boyfriend since those he did just make it any worse. But if in that situation I had read this book, which explains that because of men's lack of ability in communicating, which is also biologically influenced by their own system, men tend to keep silent when they hear women tell them their stories and this book also explains that when men are told stories about women's mood ruining, they will feel like it is a problem which need a solution and they are there, listen to the story, to make a solution. If only I and my boyfriend had read this book, we shouldn't keep silent for 2 weeks after that incident. This book is just awesome.
Are you a newly married couple or lovebirds ?. This book will definitely help you not to be angry for something that has biologically exist of your partner, understand the real circumstances, and I am pretty sure, if every couples, in a relationship or marriage, have this book and read it, the number of divorces or break-ups will significantly decrease.
