Gadget Talks Over Negrense Foods

A dear friend from LA who I actually first met also through the blogging world ( isn't blogging great, we form friendships that we do truly treasure ) came to visit me here in San Diego. How did we spend our day? Well, over Negrense foods, and talking about mostly hiking, photography, photo books, and gadgets, such as: iPad, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy S4, Mac and Windows. We both use these mentioned gadgets and were comparing their performance. We both agreed that Mac is way too expensive we could not justify the price for the same speed as Windows. Since we both take photos in RAW, not in JPEG, we need fast processor computers. 

For the same specs, such as a 3 GHz i7 Processor, we would have to pay about $2000 more for a Mac. Because I could not justify the more than $2000 price difference, I stick with windows for my laptop. I believe I am careful enough in tuning up my laptop using  pc tuneup software  that is why my laptops usually die down not from virus attack, but because of physical abuse. My 2 year old laptop ( first generation i7 core ) broke because I accidentally dropped it during my last vacation in the Philippines. Thus, I just do not see the point of spending $2000 more for something that has the same features as Windows laptop. The only advantage we both were thinking is we could sync our iPad and iPhone. However, because I recently changed to Samsung Note 2 from iPhone 4s ( I did not upgrade to 5, instead chose Note 2), I told my friend that I have more reason now not to get a Mac since I am slowly getting away from apple now. I was asked why I dropped my iPhone for Note 2, and I simply replied, because of "burst shots" and higher photographic capabilities the Note 2 camera has over iPhone 5, and a faster processor. Imagine us talking about gadgets, blogger, wordpress, photo softwares, and anything more about technology gadgets that lasted almost a day? Thankfully, there were Negrense foods to fill us up. Here they are:
Danggit and Pusit ( Dried Fish and Dried Squid)
Ginataang Langka sa Monggo ( Sauteed Mungbeans with jackfruit, amaranth and coconut milk )
Chicken Adobo
Chorizo
Ahhhh, foods and chit chat with friend, some of the priceless simple joys in our simple lives!

  2. Ang sarap ng mga pagkain. Time check here - 11:15pm. Gusto ko ng mag umaga para makahanap ng ganitong food. :)

    I find iphone products expensive. I bought ipad years ago and not upgrading. For my mobile phone, I use android phones.
