Just adding a video on YouTube to describe how I felt personally about using OnePlus One after 3 days. The video is shaky since I’d rarely ever used a smartphone for recording videos, and so I didn’t anticipate for the footage to be so shaky. The footage I’d taken with OnePlus One is raw; meaning I didn’t use Photoshop or any other video quality enhancement feature to make the footage looks better. I want the footage to be pristine just like how it got captured without being edited, showing the real quality of the hardware that I used to capture the footage. Nonetheless, since the video is way too shaky for normal viewing, and so I had to use a stabilizer feature which came with my video editing software to somewhat stabilize the shaky footage. In the future, if I’m ever going to do another video recording session with a smartphone, I’ll definitely put more effort in anchoring myself so the footage won’t be too shaky. Anyhow, check out the video right after the break. Enjoy!!!
I just got my hands on OnePlus One smartphone from OnePlus, and I’m a very happy man. Basically, I’d pre-ordered OnePlus One smartphone like a week and half ago, and now I got it. Check out the short review video I’d made for this awesome smartphone right after the break. Enjoy!!!
Wanting to know how to apply a screen protector to your smartphone such as OnePlus One? Check out the YouTube video I found on YouTube which shows you how to do just this right after the break. Enjoy!!!
Apparently, Oneplus.net is down as it crashes when so many people are hitting Oneplus.net at the same time to pre-order Oneplus One smartphone. Oneplus.net tweets (link) that its people are working on to bring the server back up for pre-ordering. As I’m writing this right now, I can’t really pre-oder the phone since Oneplus.net won’t allow my web browser to load it. Anyhow, let’s hope Oneplus.net will be OK soon so people can begin to pre-order Oneplus One. I had the feeling that this would happen, because Oneplus One is a hot smartphone. I didn’t know I was so damn right about that I wouldn’t get to load Oneplus.net correctly on time for pre-ordering. Sigh… Are you pre-ordering Oneplus One too?
The Reddit’s Oneplus One Pre-order conversation is here (link).
Update: I finally got through the Oneplus.net’s Pre-order hiccup and ordered 2 Oneplus Ones. One for my sister, and the other one is for me. Nonetheless, at the moment, I’m still seeing my payment to Oneplus.net through Paypal is being pending. Crossing my fingers and hoping that nothing will go wrong. If nothing will go wrong, I’ll receive Oneplus One in 4 to 5 weeks wait time. The wait time is suck, but I hope the phone will be great!
Oneplus’ one day pre-order is counting down as we speak. As I’m writing this right now, it seems there is only 1 day, 13 hours, 36 minutes, and 56 seconds left before time runs out, and when time does run out you cannot order the Oneplus One smartphone until when I don’t really know. You only have one hour to finalize the pre-order of Oneplus One when it’s time to do so. Miss the hour, then you won’t be able to finalize the pre-order and get the Oneplus One ships to you.
I’m exciting about this Oneplus One smartphone. I haven’t switched to any other smartphone since HTX 8x, but I’m pre-ordering the Oneplus One as we speak. Hopefully, I won’t be occupied on the hour when the finalizing process is suppose to be taken for Oneplus One pre-order to go through. If I’m going to get my hand on this beast, I’ll probably write a thing or two about my personal experience with it. Until then, I guess…
Additional Information: As standing, you don’t need to subscribe to any mobile contract, and yet Oneplus One is fully unlocked. With amazing hardware and capabilities, and yet Oneplus One is half the price of most elite smartphones out there. As we speak, I can pre-order Oneplus One 64GB Sandstone black model for $349. Certain carriers may not work with Oneplus One, and so if you want this phone badly you may have to do some research to see if your carrier is OK with Oneplus One. I know AT&T is OK with Oneplus One.

In the video right after the break, a guy demonstrated that he could use external graphic card to run games on MacBook Air with frame rate per second hovered around 90 frames per second. The trick is that he used Thunderbolt and his external graphic card rig. My imagination is now feeling tickled! Does this mean if we try and things are right we might be able to hook up a humongous box with — only — few dozens of external graphic cards within so we can do just about anything graphic intensive? Such a graphic card box will run hot of course, but with proper cooling everything will be alright. Furthermore, when you can externally partition graphic power from CPU power, it means you can have the graphic power be stationary everywhere, and all you need is your mobile devices to be on the go. I wonder, if the Internet connection can be just as fast as Thunderbolt, will graphic power go streaming in real time across the Internet tubes? Anyhow, the YouTube video is right after the break. Enjoy it!!!
Afterthought: Wouldn’t it be awesome if virtual computers (virtualization of computing power) could tap into the full potential of the external graphic power? In this sort of case, the virtualization of computing does not need to mimic the video graphic card hardware, but just tap into the graphic power directly. This will unleash cheap computing furthermore. You can basically run a bunch of different operating systems on one machine through the virtualization of computing with true graphic power. I think this will be super super cool!!!

After watching the commercial on Sony SBH50 Bluetooth headset (using NFC tech), I have to say I’m drooling for one. Sure, the price tag of whatever is never a pleasant thing, but me me me see what a beautiful way to relinquish that cumbersome smartphone. When it comes to a smartphone, some people like it big like a tablet so they can call it as a phablet. I do like to have a phablet moment too, but there are times that I just want to be free from a phablet (i.e., smartphone with big screen) completely. I can see that Sony SBH50 Bluetooth headset is definitely going to set some people free from a phablet (somewhat… as NFC has a wireless range limit), and hopefully this thing will be just as awesome as how it’s being advertised. Check out Sony SBH50 Bluetooth headset (using NFC tech) video right after the break, and you will see what I mean as this little gorgeous player does a lot more than just being NFC poster whatever.
