The True Defination of Special

Last weekend I was walking around downtown to scout around for several stuff. So we decided to walk around to check out the price and where is the best place to buy the things that we might want/need.
1) Sony Ericsoon w580i

Eileen's phone is currently faulty and she is using my extra phone now. She is however scouting around to look for a new phone to purchase as the one she is using now is kinda confusing for her as the keys are not very user friendly. So we looked around everywhere for the best price and package. This colour is a limited edition as normally you only have a black, gray or white colour. Best price we found so far, RM799.

2) HTC Diamond Touch

A PDA phone that any geek would enjoy. This phone is the closest competitor to Apple's iPhone. For my personal opinion, this phone is small, sleek and honestly, It looks wicked! I always was curious on how much this thing would cost me if I were to buy it. True enough, the price is a hefty sum of RM2799. After 2 days of thinking, I decided to let this go for now. Maybe after a few months/years when my existing PDA expires then I might get this. :) but by then most likely there'll be newer and pretty gadgets out in the market =.="
3) Tamron Camera Lense.

I realized soon after the fireworks pictures, that the current kit lense I'm using is really no difference from using a normal point and shoot camera. This thing however is like an upgraded feature of the lense that I currently am using and it has a better picture quality. Best price after scouting around is RM1430. Ouch my Wallet!!

4) Hoya Polarizing Filter.

This gadget is good for my kind of photographer who does not know how to use Adobe Photoshop. LOL It helps me to cut off the glare off daylight pictures. It does comes in pretty handy though. Price is RM100. Want to see the result of having your lense poralized?

See the power of poralizing your lense? mwahahaha...

5) Dry Cabinet

After having my camera for about 2 years, I still do not have a dry cabinet to store my lenses and kit. Having a dry cabinet is necessary to keep the good condition of your camera and your lenses. The cheapest I found is RM230.

Want to know something funny?

When I was asking the sales guy about the HTC Diamond, this is the conversation that took place between us...

me: How much is the HTC Diamond going for now?
sales: Right now we got promotion. Selling for RM2799.
me: Wow that's quite expensive. What package do you include inside?
sales: We will give you screen protector, a bluetooth headset...
me: What brand?
sales: Jabra. We also give you the software that you need or other softwares that you want and we have, we'll give you, and the GPS software, Map King.
me: That's all? Anything else?
sales: We'll also give you a leather casing, it's not for sale but we use it as free gift. We're also giving away a Special Gift...
me: What's the special gift?
sales: We cannot tell you wan... it's special...
me and eileen: =.=" *we almost fell down*

Seriously, I almost wanted to slap that guy... with his look and the way he said the "We cannot tell you wan" part, it really took me off by a suprise... he looks something like this...

I believe you would too want to slap him >.<

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ever-permeating in this day and age, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.
