GPD pocket

Participated in a crowdfunding for a UMPC....ultra mobile PC on indegogo.


This arrived in August, the GPD Pocket.
A Windows 10 ultra mini size note PC, very much looking like a mini Macbook lol
The design and quality actually is very similar to the Macbook Air except for it's size.


The keyboard has it's side effects do to the sizing....the key pitch itself is pretty spacious but the odd key layout (to fit the keys all in) requires getting used to.
It would have been the ideal device if it had internal cell modem for internet connection.
However, that's about the only two drawbacks with this little gadget.

Overall, a nice interim PDA till I find myself my next iPad ! lol

Testing a new design for this blog... quite simple and clean.
The best thing is is that it's Movabletype standard layout (meaning no tweaks required), and it's responsive (meaning the layout will adjust to access form all kinds of devices.))

Took my GoPro HERO3+ action camera to Hawaii on vacation.
Drove to North Shore, went snorkeling, did some hikes, ate, ate ate, and also just watched sunset. Unfortunately, no cycling. (We need to do it again sometime.)

Here are some GoPro clips edited for YouTube. The originals are great on my 42" HDTV !

Tokyo encountered heavy snow two weekends in a row.


Late night near the station. Totally different scenery.


Around the house.


Snow covered...what ?


Partially uncovered, the next morning


A pic from the snowfall a week ago. This was heavy, but not compared to this week.


You don't see so many snowmen in Tokyo. They were big guys this time around...
