There are a lot of things to consider in purchasing things for our living room. I'm not the one in charge of redecorating because my Mom usually meddles if I do; so we let her do all the things she wants. I know how to look if the rug is handmade or not so when we went to a Persian Rug store she asked me to identify the ones she liked. We immediately went to the discount area rugs because I know Mom was on a tight budget. The real Persian ones were a little expensive but the machine made rugs that can fool even the designer's keen eye are right for this challenge. It's okay for me even if the stitching is seen on the edges because some of them only have the small ones.

I also suggested some bold colored ones that pop on neutral palettes if she decided to go that path on the wall paint. I never got to discuss with her the plans she had for that either. She wanted to have a new section separated from her current house arrangements and let me choose on the earth tone rugs she chose for the house. Even if I know the stitches were all too even and this was made by machines I went ahead and got her a red, maroon and black color combination. The technology behind this very clean and quality rug is awesome. Even if it is generated by machines; it makes me feel safe in choosing any design or make just as long as it comes from great institutions in rug production. I would also feel safer if I bought it from on line stores since I expect more discounts there too! It's so hard to tell which one is authentic with the current rug technologies. It's all for the best!

I guess I did buy the right lens for my D60 Camera. It has this awesome depth of field and I probably have aced all the shots from testing this 35mm lens that just came from the US. I love it when I do the right thing.

I am having problems with setting the ISO though because on AUTO the output seems too dark and it does not follow the original setting as indicated on manual mode. It adjusts to it automatically but the iso range is so different it sets itself on a different one even if it is not on the right light.

As for the sharpness I wouldn't complain about it because even at its peak F4 it still performs quite remarkably. I love how vivid its pictures come out at that rate. I haven't been able to use it yet for modeling stints but once that we get to the photo shoots I'll really try this out. Fashion week is near too so if I would be able to get an invite to any show I'm surely going to use this aside from my zoom lens.

I am looking for a small form factor Desktop CPU and I found out that there are only a few choices available in the market. I am trying to minimize things in my room since and since my current one occupies almost an eighth of the space, this would probably be the better solution. I am trying my best to have a more powerful but less bulky set. Flat screen monitors probably would fit the small tables I have so the deal here is to find a branded Desktop CPU that can fit the small cramped space I have for it too.

I am dropping by the computer store later to take a look at the ACER ASPIRE X1200 which already has an installed Windows VISTA Home Basic plus an AMD ATHLON X2 Dual Core Processor. I do heavy photo editing and I need this processor rate to stay within that speed or more. If ever it is not possible to achieve that within budget constraints then I would definitely go with a notebook or a lower form just as long the programs I need for editing can be installed. Memory also plays a very important part in my choice so if the NVIDIA GEFORCE chip set does not succeed getting my needed video/graphics requirement I have to think of other alternatives. I need a Desktop computer now but if it is possible for me to get a laptop computer instead, then I'm all for that!

I got this phone off of a promo from Globe Telecom Inc. which is one of the providers here in the Philippines. I know it is free but hey it should work as a phone at least. I was disappointed it did not function well the first time I tried to call someone. No one could hear me or if ever there was some who could, it was too soft. They barely could hear me. I wanted to have it replaced so I went back to Globe. They talked to me there but you know, I felt they were just suspecting I wasn't telling the truth. For a cheap phone why should I go back there in the middle of the afternoon while I was on my day off?! I am not happy Globe and this is not the first time I had a nightmare with you.

After a few mock calls she initially did not believe the mouthpiece was damaged. I used another phone and got through nicely. She believed after she used her own phone and talked to me after wards. It took me a couple of hours there and even then she looked as if she was still not convinced to swap it with a new one, but she had no choice I wasn't going anywhere for a phone that didn't work.

There are a few things I didn't like about the phone. It's too small. Mouthpiece was too far from the real place to talk. The display was mediocre. It sounded off every time you open and close it. The battery life was great but it always turns the back light and handset off when you don't press anything on the keypad for a few seconds. I haven't tried the mp3 or radio yet but I will once I get home. Samsung should pay me for these tests, but I can't complain on free phones!

I have been using graphic design software and I must say that at this day and age there are a lot of improvements. I must also admit that not all of them function well but there are several that remain very impressive. I use CAD software for most designs I make for clients. I have been using them since college to design furniture and works of art. I mainly use them for structural engineering and architecture. I remember the time when I made my first rendered object. Nowadays it is not that much expensive. There are even free ones like this Aluminum frame designer; and you can form various things with it. Imagine very powerful software that you can use and download for free. In just a few minutes, this very special software can also generate schematics, fabricated renders once you are finished with your design!

The 3D view is also great as it shows every detail of the frame and you can never go wrong with the measurements since it follows the indicated scale. FRAMEXPERT is specialized CAD software that can be used to build frames with limitless possibilities while having the option of getting it all shipped overnight. When you need some shelving or containers for your gadgets and tools this is the right thing to have. This is indeed a designer's dream software! I love it!

I wanted to have sharp strong images plus the bokeh via a big 1.4 or 1.8 aperture. I was choosing between the 50mm f1.4, 50mm f1.8 or the 35mm f1.8. All of them are Nikkor so I don't really have problems as far as quality is concerned. A prime lens would be perfect for me since I do fashion spreads and portraits. The deal is I only was able to hold 50mm lenses with a Canon and Nikon. I haven't touched the 35mm but judging from the output I saw from a peer I think it would be the best one for me.

Comparing the shots that were from the 50mm 1.8 this is actually better and the plus side is I can definitely use it with my D60. The autofocus option is important much so with low light conditions. The 50mm 1.8 apparently would not autofocus because it doesn't have any motor inside and comparing their output, the images look more sharper indeed.

I already bought one from AMAZON this morning and I'm waiting for it to be delivered this 17th. I am so excited about this new purchase. I know it is kind of another impulsive purchase but hey I've been a good boy this year so why shouldn't reward myself right?! =)
