iPad air and iPad Mini- prices

iPad air and iPad Mini

 

This morning Oct 22, 2013 I received the email from Comic Con that the Press Badge pre-registration is open.  One of the purposes of me stating MsCircumstance was to create a  semi tech blog that would allow me to cover free lance articles about new games, travel and gadgets…and food…lots of food.

This will be my first time applying for the press badge for 2014 Comic Con. I barely fall under the category of podcasters and bloggers. I am hopeful that my application grants me access if not…well there’s always the back up plan and keep trying for next year.  for more information on how to apply for a press badge go to http://www.comic-con.org/

Phil Schiller Introducing iPad Air during Live Keynote

In other news. Apple in their special live event just announced the their newest installment to the iPad family. The keynote started with a small update of the iPhone 5S and 5S release in London followed by an update of their new OS 10 upgrade Mavericks before unveiling the iPad 5 or rather iPad Air, aptly named for its thinner and lighther frame. The new iPad Mini also was revealed to have retina display and of course installed with iOS 7 and once paid apps like Keynote, iMovie, iWork, even Garage band comes in free with the upgraded devices.  Mac users were also given a treat of having to upgrade to the latest Mac OS Mavericks for Free.

 

So a lowdown on what the new iPad Air has:

 

1. 20% Thinner and a smaller bezel

2. Camera boast 5MP iSight, with a HD Face Time camera  (also an available feature with the new iPad Mini)

3. Runs with the A7 chip -8 x faster  and graphics 72x Faster

4. Retinal Display 9.7 inches

5. Has iOS 7 and 64 bit technology

6. Weighs about 1 pound- making it the lightest tablet

7. MIMO technology for the WiFI- Multiple antennas

iPad Air features

Some vague things not mentioned where the exact release dates except it will be in time for the Christmas Holidays.

No word on the Fingerprint scanner that iPhone 5s have or variety of colors.

 

Prices: iPad Air $499  New iPad Mini $399

 

The initial reactions around the web is a bit “underwhelmed” as one yahoo Live Blogger covering the event said but it all comes down to how it well it works once it gets released sometime November (please not Black Friday)

 

Also personal update. Finally got my iPhone 5S. First smartphone for me to own–ever.  Still getting used to it and missing my old Nokia C3 already.

One Year of Circumstances

There’s a saying back in my country. ” Iiyak mo na ang dapat mong iiyak. Iluha mo na ang dapat mong iluha. Mahalin ang dapat mong mahalin. ”  Which literally translates to ” Cry what needs to cried. Shed a tear to what needs  to be shed a tear. Love what needs to be loved.” Continue reading

Bad Luck and Go Fund Me

 

This is my home its not much but to me its everything

This is my home its not much but to me its everything

 

I am starting to suspect that bad luck has a thing for me. Not too long ago, I posted about the time I was nearly homeless. I was able to catch some break over the years but there was always that fear when it comes to the home I live in. I live in this 2 bedroom house south of San Diego that is being rented out to me in the past 7-8 years by a distant relative.  The area was at one point dubbed a low income district but despite the positive changes over the decades and a lower crime rate the identity stuck. After my mother passed and my dad moved back to the Philippines to retire and grieve, I was left with a new debt which grew after the hospital bills and loss of employment of that ill-fated year. I found over the years 3 long term housemates/roommates that helped me with paying the lease of my home. Continue reading

I was called Fat. So What. Lets Party!!!

“the fatty ain’t here. she can back read sure, then sulk after

I was out for a long time from a Facebook group chat between some “close” friends of mine. And upon my return, the comment above is what greeted me.   I may have mentioned before that I’m starting to have some struggles with my weight. I’m around 15-18lbs overweight. All my clothes are size 10 and yet I’m slowly slipping up to a 12. Since I was 18-25 I always weighed around 98-110lbs regardless of how much I ate and how little I exercised .  Continue reading

Deciding on a new blog and a new outlet

I’ve had a few blogs before. The first being in the now defunct Friendster. Next was Blogger which became part of the Google family and my Facebook account which has been pretty much the world I revolve around in.  It took me a good 2 hours to find a blog that I can call home. I decided on 2. WordPress and Tumblr. Will experiment on both untill one suits me just fine.

Lately my latest posts in Facebook has caused some negative feedbacks amongst friends. Being that I live quite far away from the nearest family member and closest buds, having that shoulder to cry on advantage is not really an option. And unfortunately even posting ” I had a bad day.” on my FB wall will draw the ire of a lot of people.

A good friend of mine asked if I ever blogged. I said yes but it has been a long while. She suggested to create a new blog annonymous to my friends as a way to post my thoughts and frustrations. A way that I can share life without the prejudice of friends or frenemies. I laughed and said ” Then it will be the whole world that finds me who would will pick on me.”

But, I considered her advice and hopefully, unlike my house plants I can keep this one alive .

So here’s to WordPress and Tumblr (may the best site win) and a start of a new written adventure
