I don’t normally do the whole desktop wallpaper thing, but Lollipop Chainsaw’s Julie is such an exception.
I’m not a big fan of launch events, press releases and other media-infused oddities, so I can’t really say if HTC actually conducted extensive market research to figure out what people look out for the most when it comes to smartphones, or if they just concocted the story that they asked people what they really ‘needed’ from a smartphone out of thin air.
Either way, the HTC One was launched worldwide yesterday, and Malaysia wasn’t spared any expense in bringing this wunderkind of a smartphone to its…uh…people.
The phone’s is marked out to be a smartphone that everyone can use — something that basically suits the modern lifestyles of hipsters, hooligans and the common man today.
The HTC One X is gorgeous with its form factor and its powdered-white glory, but it also needs a micro-SIM; get your scissors ready!
1. Shoots flawless HD photos while recording HD videos, without interrupting the video recording!
2. For the kiasu types, if anything goes wonky with your One within a year of purchasing it, you can get a direct replacement — say goodbye to repairs!
3. A relatively decent price of RM 2,100 sort of sways you towards it
4. 2 years’ free subscription to DropBox – 25 GBs of storage is yours!
5. It’s smudge-free — I’ve witness lipstick coming off it with a simple rub!
1. Call me super-cheap, but it’d be nice if we could have that storage…FOREVER.
2. 1080p? Nope, just 720p when it hooks up to your TV!
3. The HTC One V looks like a chinnier HTC Legend/Hero. Actually, it IS one.
Verdict: Buylah, if you have the money!
Lord knows why, but I felt immensely overjoyed after watching this. On a side note, it’s also good to know that the Brothers Hawkins are back.
I heard about Portlandia through the digital ads playing on The Onion. It was touted to be a sketch show set in Portland, and it features SNL’s Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein doing the performing.
In all honesty, I’m only halfway through the very first episode, but one thing that immediately hit me was the opening sequence, which is such an incredibly chilled-out piece of noise.
I suppose that if it spawned a second season, it can’t be that bad.
Heh. We’re all bound to forget about this in two weeks, but for what it’s worth, it’s pretty fucking funny.
