We are Techie kids. We enjoy play, games, science, sports, and other activities that stimulate thinking.

Canon Eos 7D

We were weighing our options between the 7D and the 5D Mark II for the past month but hubby decided to get the former, mostly for its video capability features. When  I look at the 400D beside the 7D, it seems like  a toy dwarfed by the size of the latter. The buttons would also intimidate one who is used with lesser functions (read: me). Key features of this model: Canon 18-megapixel APS-C size CMOS image sensor full HD video capture @ 1920x1080 (720p and VGA sizes also available) Dual Digic 4 processors, EF/EFS lens mount 3.0-inch LCD with 920K pixels 8 frames per second burst mode completely redesigned AF system and viewfinder wireless flash control high ...

The iPhone 4

  The Iphone 4 is definitely thinner than the previous version. The built and style as we know is slick and very classy to look at. Its polished stainless steel bound by sleekly laminated layers of glass makes other phones look yesteryear's choice. The additional front-facing, VGA (640×480) camera is interesting, well I won't use it that much anyway. Still with the new 5 megapixel, 720p video camera and LED flash, I say I'd prefer a Sony Ericsson's for picture quality. Wait until you get apps for photoediting like PS Express, OldPhoto, Instagram and Tiltshift to name a few, you'd have fun editing as I do, for sure.     Pros: really attractive design high  and clear resolution display iOS ...

Plants vs. Zombies

It's late but I'm still up, ask why...I'm still having jetlag from out flight. The hubby is still up, playing and perhaps trying to be one of those zombies. He's been going on like this for days since he discovered this addicting game. I say addicting because my kids are hooked in this too. Despite my warnings because I really don't like them playing such games, the kids told me how the game is played, showed my how they kill zombies and what would happen if they aren't successful. As a game lover and one who doesn't believe in ghosts or the dead coming back alive and one who abhors spiritism, I am torn. Honestly, I am so not recommending this game, especially to kids. And because it is ...

ModNation Racers

Following Little Big Planet is another game where users can generate content sharing and level creation tools online. ModNation Racers is a kart racing game where players are able to drift and accelerate...much like earlier games as Mario Kart, Chocobo Racing, Sonic Drift and the likes. Players can sideswipe other racers, boost their speed or enable shields to protect them from other racers' attacks. Much violent I say, players can collect weapons and upgrade them as the game progresses. That's why this game is mostly played by hubby. Just like Little Big Planet, there's a lobby where players can meet, create characters and download stuff, it's named ModSpot in the game. The Modspot is an ...

Macbook Skins

Meet my buddy, snow white, I mean "maki," my macbook! It has been 3 years since I got this as a gift from hubby, and he got me one of the pretty macbook skins I like. I've called it "maki" and you know that when you name something you get attached to it, I did. Maki has since undergone some 'operations and parts replacement. Once for having bathed with milk (credits to the little boy), for being made into a piggy bank (little boy put some coins in the cd slot) and for just dying out while we were on a far away vacation. Ever reliable hubby revived maki on all those instances (handyman!), yes even when I thought that the dying out phase would be the last I'd see of maki. I have to thank ...
