I Found out What I Was Missing and Made Some Changes

I often do not check my spam box in my email program. It is not that I am against doing that, but I often forget to do it. I recently learned that people and companies you deal with may be sending information to you that hits your spam box, and then I realized I needed to start checking it more often. So, I did that least week, and found an email from a local company that offered me less expensive utility rates and asked me to click here for more information in the email. All I can say is that …

Security Systems Are Definitely Affordable

When I bought my house a few years ago, I didn’t even consider getting a home security system. I didn’t research home security prices then, but I just felt that it was going to be something that I simply could not afford. When my neighbor’s house was broken into a few months ago, I knew that it was time to finally look into it though. When I first moved in, it was just me, and I felt that I could take care of myself. Now though, I have a wife and a set of one year old twins, and I …

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX

Originally, I thought of getting the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite to replace my Kindle Keyboard which I thought was not possible to be fixed. But after a lot of researching and finally successful in dismantling my Kindle Keyboard and replacing the broken screen….I started to realise that I just simply cannot let go of my Kindle Keyboard, I love it too much! It would therefore pointless for me to get the Paperwhite, because the only differences between these two devices are a touchscreen and backlighting….features that I can actually live without. Hence I decided that in order to get a better …

DIY-ing my Kindle 3

After scouring the World Wide Web for months, I found out that sending a Kindle 3 for repairs to a third-party is too costly for me to bear. There are only a few companies which offer a Kindle 3 screen repair service, and most of them are located in the US and the UK. Being a Malaysian, sending my Kindle to either the US or UK would already be costly enough, what more with having to bear the repair costs and the shipping back to Malaysia! The total cost for all that amounts to at least RM700++, which not only …

Amazon Kindle screen repair

Last night I discovered that my precious Amazon Kindle (3rd generation) which has been with me for at least a year — and that after I claimed warranty for the first unit I had from the company — has broken its screen display again. Much like what I had faced before with the first unit that I had, the screensaver is frozen and no amount of resetting the device or powering it up will solve the issue. So I told the vendor I bought it from about it and he suggested that I might as well ditch it and get …

Kindle Paperwhite versus the Kobo Glo

I am very happy with my current Amazon Kindle 3 (renamed to Kindle Keyboard after Amazon released several new e-book readers with different tech) but since its technology is quite dated now, I do want to get something new to keep up with current times. Originally I was thinking of getting the Kindle Paperwhite but after I saw this excellent video review comparing the Paperwhite to the Kobo Glo (see the video above), I end up still mulling over the matter. However, I think that I am leaning towards the idea of getting the Kobo Glo since the backlight of …
