I do have an iPod Classic I bought in mid-2007. It was my first Apple product purchase. I don’t recall what Gen it was, but it was the 80GB version. Although software and hardware indicate it needs to retire, I can’t let go of it just yet because my Music Library in my iTunes alone is worth around 50GB, which can’t fit the 64GB iPod Touches and iPhones especially when scores of apps are already installed.

What do you do to turn idle times into productive times? Say you’re waiting in line to see the dentist or doctor, or for whatever reason.
At this day and age, good thing we have our smartphones and tablets with us. Of course, you can’t do office works on their meager screens, but at least it is an opportunity to catch up on some readings.

That way it would be:
- Cheaper — I have to spend for the domain mapping ($13) and registration only per year;
- More Secure — I have 2-step authentication in place;
- Less Downtime — I suppose, it’s WordPress.com for speaking out loud!
- Free Storage — I don’t think I’ll be able to use all the free 3GB of allowed images by the service — for the life of this blog.
- It’s here to stay — Again, I suppose. WordPress has been challenged by so many but it will be here to stay.
I have always aimed for the minimalist design. I’m tired of fully customizing my blog. I just want a simple blog that I can write everything that interests me.
Just to show you how problematic Android maps and geolocation can often be, I’ve tested the Google Maps app in the iPhone 5s and LG G2 using the same wifi network. And here’s the result.
