In this age of global economy, online marketplaces and all things virtual, securing your personal data is more important than ever. And while many new technologies seem fun, exciting and designed to make your life easier and quicker, they can also put you at serious risk of having your identity stolen.
As technology continues to advance and we get closer to a completely wireless and paperless age, new gadgets and gizmos are continuously developed to automate nearly everything. But the speed at which those technologies are implemented and distributed oftentimes doesn’t provide enough testing in the safety and security that needs to go along with it in order to keep you and your family safe.
I miss talking, I miss letting out all my worries and just blabbering it to my closest friends. Lately I feel as if I am bottling up all my emotions and its getting harder to just talk about anything that is wrong. I seem to have also developed a filter in me that doesn’t allow me to show any weakness or talk about anything really, do you guys experience it?
It’s like if there is something really bad happening I would rather bottle up so I don’t hear some unwarranted advice or something that hurts because I alone have the entire facts of the story. For example, I am not at all happy where I am at in my work life, going into the government sector was an insanely bad decision but helpful to learn from, I don’t regret that part. But I don’t feel comfortable with some comments that say: Use the time to start a small business, study, or stick it out. I feel as if I am dying creatively and the only way I can think of amending that would be by getting on my blog or instagram and just letting it out. Some might suggest I should turn my blog into a business, that would be smart but I am doing this out of love for the thing it’s a hobby I feel if I were to turn it into a work discipline thing then I will immediately start to hate it and feel confined.
Sometimes I feel that my brain is sabotaging me, I freak out and get anxious on the littlest things. Especially things that I know quite well myself I just feel as if I am underqualified when most times I might have more to offer than others. It’s a psychological thing for me and always has been. It’s exactly like how when I work out and diet for a few months lose some weight and someone comes up to me and says “Oh wow you lost weight, looking good!” I take that as a cue to start eating junky again and I gain what I lost and more. I have no idea why I do it, I just do.
Maybe I’m sick in the head! Anyways I just wanted to let this out!
While I was compiling my annual Birthday Wish List as I am the type of person to tell my friends and family what items I want so they don’t shock me with something that I might not want, I stumbled across this new wearable gadget that is called the QBRACELET.
Apparently it’s a stylish bracelet that allows you to charge your phone by just unhooking it and slapping it onto your phone (not really slapping but you get the picture). It’s a 1.8 oz bracelet that has a 1,160 mAh battery in it, which pretty much can charge an iPhone 5s approximately 60%.
It comes in 3 different sizes (small, medium, and large) and in 4 different colors (polished silver, matte silver, polished gold, and matte black). It’s available for pre-ordering at a 20% discount bringing the price down to $78 from $98.
I find that its insanely cool and awesome! I might grab myself one since my wrist is filled with technological gadgets anyways :P
Shipping will be Spring 2015. Interested then visit their website.
(And I just placed my pre-order woohooo!)
Since I last left you there have been some new renewals and cancellations on the list. Along with new information as to when your favorite mid-season shows will be returning, some will be returning for their final seasons. Interested to find out more then keep on reading.
Among the Fall’s newest shows we saw the renewal and full season order of FOREVER, along with the cancellations of SELFIE, A TO Z, and BAD JUDGE. It was no shocker for the cancelled shows but FOREVER was a welcome surprise in which we get to see more of our favorite Medical Examiner Dr. Henry Morgan.
I just saw the extended trailer for The AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON movie that aired last night during an episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I fell in love, I am mentally booking my ticket to go watch this movie abroad not going to even bother waiting for it in Kuwait in fear it might get chopped up!
Why can’t they just make a TV Show for the AVENGERS I would love 22 hours of that every year!
No strings on me! Ultron is one freaky scary dude!!
I usually give an update once a month but I thought the recent news of the full season orders/pick-ups of our beloved new Fall TV 2014 shows deserved a post of their own. You see last week we were given a green light for shows like HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, BLACK-ISH, THE FLASH, and JANE THE VIRGIN. This week we saw the cancellation of MANHATTAN LOVE STORY and the full season orders of MADAM SECRETARY, STALKER, SCORPION, NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, and THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA.
I personally am happy with how things played out but would have expected MULANEY to be the first show cancelled this season due to its insanely bad everything.

- STALKER has been picked up for a full season by CBS
- SCORPION has been picked up for a full season by CBS
- NCIS: NEW ORLEANS has been picked up for a full season by CBS

If you are like most shoppers, you are always looking to save a little money, especially when it comes to tech purchases. According to GoRave, the average household spends more than $1,600 on consumer electronic devices annually. Oftentimes, getting the best deal simply requires choosing the right time to make your purchase. Here’s how you can figure out when is best to buy that new piece of tech you’ve had your eye on.
Video Games and Consoles
The best time of the year to save money on a video game varies. It’s best to wait several weeks after a game is released. Demand is always highest right when a game hits the market which leads to inflated price tags. According to Kotaku, many disc-based games will see their first price drop after just two weeks of sitting on shelves. Consoles are harder to predict timing. Price cuts seem arbitrary, and in some cases, infuriating if you bought your console the day before a price cut is announced. The holiday season is a common time for video game and console prices to drop in price. Give yourself an edge by signing up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday email lists to receive alerts on upcoming holiday tech sales.The best deals of the year on consoles often surround the holidays, especially a year or two after their initial release.
For many electronics, the best sales start when inventories are at their lowest and the current shopping season is ending, which is the case for laptops. April is usually the best time to grab a deal on laptops because so many new models are announced during this month each year. This is because April is the beginning of the Japanese fiscal year, and many manufacturers and developers of laptops are based in Japan. These companies don’t want to be saddled with old inventory when new models are on their way to the shelves. Laptops are often even cheaper in April than they are during back-to-school season. July could yield good prices as well but waiting until then could mean the model you want is out of stock.
Smartphones and Mobile Devices
The most difficult devices to predict price drops for are smartphones and similar mobile devices — the original iPhone launched at $599, but in just two months dropped $200. In some cases, price drops on smartphones occur right after tech conventions where new models and technological advances are announced. In this case, it pays to keep up-to-date with the industry. With so many manufacturers creating smartphones around the world, tracking the possible factors that might lead to a price drop is nearly impossible for the average consumer. When looking to score a deal on a smartphone, the best strategy is to shop around and find three or four models that would suit your needs. Monitor them each for a price drop. In the end, the best time of the year to buy a new smartphone is when you need it.
