Its 2015

Happy New year to each of all readers of my blog. Wishing you and your family a prosperious year ahead. 

Its time again at the start of the year to revisit goals from last year. Those goals that were planned but never took off.    This year i would like to renew those goals and have gain more output from it. I know this would be a challenge and will have obstacles.   

One of the goals this year that i am looking to it is to gain weight lost. Last year I almost did it before my flight to singapore on Google Summit, It was a rewarding journey creating a fitness goal to atleast lose weight before my flight to Singapore. And this time I would like to make it happen again especially if i can start early this month.  

With all things in mind its time to go outside and start now!!!

 

Reviving The Stylus pen

Stylus pen has been around during the palm handheld era as we'll during the early days of windows smartphones. They were popular back then until touch screen smartphone in the introduction of the iPhone came around. We became occustome to touchscreen ever since. Then the stylus pens slowly goes behind the scenes when touchscreen came to the market

At a time when stylus pen aren't necessary for smartphones since everything can be done through the a touch of a hand. Literary our fingers became the stylus I remember when Steve jobs made this a point when he introduces the iPhone on 2007.  

As touch screen grew for every smartphone manufacturers, they came a point that stylus pen can be revived and integrated on our smartphones. Many has questioned this as to the point why bring back the stylus pen when you can all do things by your fingers. Divided by the fact that stylus can be marketable again or just a none existent accessory that we can just ignore and put it back behind us. It's way past the touchscreen generation. At a point the way we are thinking is that stylus pen can no longer be revived and that prove to be not accurate. I did not put the word "wrong" since technology is evolving. With the introduction of tablets and phablets, stylus pen were re-introduce. It became exciting again to have them around and use them. Adaptability of this stylus pen quickly grew when Samsung made them as a accessory on their galaxy note series. I too owned a galaxy note 8 and I find it useful in my workflow and occasional usage of the pen. I draw, take note and the experience is having a digital pen. I can say that am not a full user of the pen but occasionally there is a need for it especially if your a student who loves to take notes in digital format, artist who love to show their artwork etc.. It's a endless possibility as tech evolves around and I can see that the stylus has really came back to suit our different needs

 

 

Starbucks planners 2012 - 2014

it's has been 2 years that am consistently patronizing the Starbucks spark of hope. To me it's not just  collecting the planners but also a contributor to help the less fortunate people. It is worth the cost. 

Here are some of the Starbucks I have collected from 2012 to 2014. They have different color to choose from and you can opt to purchase a Starbucks pen in a discount rate only available if you are redeeming your planner. One thing I also enjoy is that with the planner you also have a freebies per month, either a free coffee or up size drink. 

The design of the planners throughout the years do have the creative look. Its appealing more in the eyes. I kinda like the look of planners that blend to a wooden look or its just me.  The thing is that you will be encourage to plan your daily activity and that what planners do right? Get you to plan your life.

Starbucks Pen 2014

 

Some cool stickers that came with the planner and some discount promo cards. 

Cool stickers

Starbucks over the coffee shop? It's more of preference no matter what you may support. I have been a Starbucks customer since I started to work and see how prices adjusted over the years. But the intention to support what Starbucks been doing throughout the years is enough for me to continue supporting their advocacy. And frankly it's just during December that you will spend almost everyday to complete the stickers but at the end you enjoy a cup of good coffee and help other in the time of giving.
