I’m Alex, a young Christian and vegetarian blogger who loves to go on the internet in my spare (and not so spare!) time. What else… Oh, yes, I love to read. When I’m not catching up on the latest tech news (usually on The Verge, and especially Microsoft news), I’m spending my time on my Kindle. Have any questions, about me or the blog? Visit my contact page and send me a message. Your first comment here will have to be approved by me, but after that your comments should appear online automatically – I’m trusting you here. One last thing: please keep it open to all ages, and don’t swear. Thanks.
What I use (computer and devices):
Note: this is accurate as of May 2013:
I have a Dell Inspiron 570, with an upgraded 10GB of RAM, a better graphics card and a Kingston 240GB SSD. I don’t game on my PC, and it does fine what I need it to do. It runs Windows 8 Pro (RTM) at the moment as my primary and only OS.
I have an Iiyama ProLite X2377HDS monitor, which is 23 inches and runs at 1920×1080. I strongly recommend it, though it can be a little wobbly, and the height can’t be adjusted. I have some basic HP speakers, and a Gigabyte GM-M6800 Dual Lens Gaming Mouse (though I don’t game very much), and I have a Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600, both strongly recommended..
As you may have guessed from reading this blog, I’m a huge Microsoft fan, and I use Windows 8 as my OS, Outlook.com for email, SkyDrive for files etc. though I do have an iPhone 5, because of the apps (the iOS app store is unbeatable!) and the hardware quality. We also have a family iPad 2, though I’m not really a fan of it (low screen resolution, not widescreen, no multi-tasking, productivity is impossible…) and I’m always looking out for a great Windows 8 or RT tablet that’s at a good price. One of my main hobbies is reading, and for that I use an Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G – strongly recommended.
For web browsing, I mostly use mostly Internet Explorer 10 (mainly the metro version), for note taking/web clipping I use OneNote (and Drafts on my iPhone), for task-managing I use Wunderlist and for reading articles later I use Pocket. My favourite website is probably The Verge.
