My short review of HTC Hero

leave a comment »

I had the chance to look into HTC Hero and here is what i like and i dislike;


Great design matched with an ideal size. One of the most convenient phones i have ever used.

Interaction with the phone is really good. Great menus. Android is working really well.

Screen is nice. Trackball is OK.

Android Store is open for improvement. HTC Hero is a nice alternative for Iphone but no Iphone killer i am afraid.

Price is OK as well.

Easy to adapt.


The virtual keyboard is very small. Takes time to use properly if you have big fingers.

Only comes with one game.

The camera is not the best but this is a problem of all mobile devices.

The price is around 950 TL.

What i bought from London?

leave a comment »

Yes i am in London for business. Although i took an afternoon off and spent it around some famous places. It is my first time here.

Here is the list of what i bought from this great city:

Edge Magazine

Wired UK Edition


When Saturday Comes Magazine

The Winning Mind: Sebastian Coe

For Richer For Poorer: Victoria Coren

The Return of the Economic Naturalist: Robert H Frank

The Damned Utd: David Peace

Why England Lose and other curious football phenomena explained: Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski

I am sad and happy that i do not live here. Sad because i am away from great bookshops and collectibles for fair prices. Happy because i can not afford these anyway.

Moleskine Art by Datafobik

leave a comment »


This will be some kind of an ad however the efforts spent in it deserves a special applause. Therefore i would like to share these cool Moleskine notebooks with you.

The covers are created by Datafobik, whom i know of from MYK Medya. She is very talented, check out Yahoyt Magazine for instance. She contributes to that as well. Now she is sharing her talent with everybody with a small price to pay.

What Datafobik does is this; You submit your picture to her and she draws a portrait of you on a Moleskine notebook and sends it to you. It is a great birthday present for someone you know. It also is a great collectible item. I will try to trick her into doing series of design for collectible purposes.

Anyway here on this page. You can find out all her designs. Some of them are brilliant. Such as Street Fighter paintings. I love creative stuff and Datafobik’s works are standing out…

The Sims 3: A must buy

leave a comment »


I have had the chance to play Sims 3 in the last few days for around 3 hours. It is great fun. It is much better than Sims 2 and the bladder issues are also solved in this game. As i told before i quit the previous one due to excessive bladder problems of my characters.

The game is build fantastically and work added a whole new dimension to it. You can select 6 different personality traits in order to create life time achievement goals for your characters.

You can preorder it from Amazon from the link below. For 50 dollars it offers great fun. The game is to be released on 2 June.

Today’s recommendation: Definitely Maybe

leave a comment »

I really don’t like Ryan Reynolds. He was OK in 2 Guys 1 Girl series and also in some other movies but he crossed the line by getting married to Scarlett Johansson.
But i love this movie. It reminds me of How i Met Your Mother profoundly but it is a heartwarming movie. A great way to spend 2 hours. Worth the money by all means.

Abigail Breslin is also acting superb.
