As we enter 2015 I can’t help but remember the movie Back to the future 2!

We are now moving towards October 21st 2015 the date in Back to the Future 2

I love how there is a Back To The Future Clock Count Down Timer which looks like this:

iOS7

Posted in Creativity, Internet, Life, Technology, This May Help U! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2013 by vixstar1314

I have found no matter how many times I have upgraded idevice onto a new iOS, the process would still make me nervous. Even if the idevice wasn’t mine and it was a director’s or friend’s, the pressure was still so high. Not that I don’t have faith in Apple but the fear of something going terribly wrong lingers. (I have probably done this more than 50+ times). Truth be told most of the times it had been a pretty painless process.

My personal 4 top tips:

– Going back to the previous iOS is not impossible but nor is it an easy process, therefore research the new iOS before you switch and fully commit.

-Ensure you have backed up your idevice. (I also back up the back up)

-Ensure you have an uninterrupted internet connection for at least 2 hours (yes that is how long the whole process “usually” takes to upgrade)

-Be patient. – If it appears that the device has been “stuck” at a step for a long time [leave it – don’t touch it – let it runs its course] If you interrupt it (pull out the cable/close the programme, it will highly likely corrupt it all.

Below are a few interesting articles on the latest iOS7:

Internet – digital footprints

Posted in Creativity, Internet, introspective, Life, Personal, Technology with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2013 by vixstar1314

Each click we make could potentially be a digital footprint that we are enlarging. Whether it is about yourself or something closely related to you.

We all do it, whether intentionally or unintentionally. It happens. In today’s world we have been made to incorporate it into our lives, whether we want to or not. It is a way of surviving within this techno infested world.

Digital-Footprint

I personally admit I have scattered parts of me into the cyber world. Some parts are broken pieces of me that I no longer know where to put them, and hence have decided to place them into the clouds. The higher I float, the higher it goes. Strangely there are some parts of me on the internet which holds greater depth and meaning than in reality. Furthermore, weirdly enough the internet knows some of my deepest feelings that even those closest to me may not know. How bizarre does that sound?

Possible or Not?

Posted in Creativity, Film, Life, Society, Story, Technology, Thoughts, Time with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2012 by vixstar1314

What is possible and what is not?

There is a place in this world, where anything and everything is possible! Can you guess where this is?

The answer my friend is not blowing in the wind but is in movies.

Movies have shown and taught people many things:

Go against the norm.  Follow the heart, you may question if it is right or wrong? The answer is nothing is guaranteed, nothing is certain. At the very least you acknowledge with yourself that you dared to go for it, followed your heart. If they become “mistakes”. Then so be it, mistakes are the foundation of lessons, developing and success.

Movies have the ability to create everything. From an amazing unimaginable world, where anything and everything is possible. To real life stories, to repeating history, to what the future may entail… The possibilities are endless. This is essentially the pure beauty of it, the depth of it is limitless, the stories are virtually anything is possible or depending on the movie it may be impossible in that movie.

The ability of movies allows us to be transported to worlds in and out of that in which we live in. It has the power to live on for decades, centuries – way past the actors and actresses, and audience that has viewed it. You may say it is immortal.

Life is not really a movie, because it is not on the same level, I presume this is why everyone is a fan of movies because it gives us something reality does not at times.

I ♥ Google

Posted in Creativity, Technology, Thoughts with tags , , , , , , , on June 28, 2012 by vixstar1314

Google has changed our life. At our finger tips a search on google renders results in milliseconds, before our brain can even think of the possible results, it is effortlessly presented before us.

It has even been as successful as coining the term “google” it. Even though there are other search engines, none have been able to match that of google. You rarely if ever have heard anyone say “bing” it.

It is the smartest 13-year-old ever!! The company was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

However like all technology it is not immune, there will always be threats and competitions. If it is able to be one step ahead of its competitors and predict the market. Or produce even better resources that even the market did not know that they wanted until it was introduced to them then it would have won! For technology to survive it has to constantly adapt and innovate with that of society and markets. They need to constantly develop and change just as the world changes constantly. Without this key it will eventually die out.

  I still believe Google has it still, and highly likely for quite a few more years to come.

Part of me

Come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever put so much of myself into something “not real”

This blog has over time become more and more integrated into me, or I have become more into it. To be frank I am unclear as to which has influenced which.

In a bizarre way I find comfort in knowing this, I guess this is how innovation in technology has influenced us. This is apparent in many ways, such as blogging, social network, devices have integrated into our life,and in some cases playing a big part in our life than it should.  Many people, and even celebrities and public figures have taken a very strong interest into putting more and more information onto the web via twitter, instragram, facebook etc…

There are times when my blog knows more about me than reality itself which does seem quite strange.
