Do the Local Motion 2

Saturday, August 06, 2005


it's "time to surf!" and what better way to say it than the Local Motion Wall clock? it's got awesome graphics of a tube from the local Hawaii breaks and tells time. simple, does the job, and looks good. so now that you're ready to head out, what better way than to go by long board? Sector 9 and Local Motion have come out with their unique formula and introduced the LM Cruize. It is 44.5 inched long, 9.5 inches wide, with nineball wheels on Pivot trucks. speaking of which i should probably head to the beach, sitting in a club full of drunk strangers last night was not my idea of fun..
now all i need is a surfboard... "catch a wave and you're sitting on top of the world." - beachboys [equipbug]

Do the Local Motion

Friday, August 05, 2005


Local Motion
is a local Hawaiian surf brand. They make surf boards and very cool shirts. the most distinctive designs are their "pin up girls" series of T's. The girls on your back are almost always carrying a surfboard, but i suppose they look equally good on the surf. it's the middle of summer and these T shirts will definitely turn eyes, but perhaps the wrong set.. nevertheless, Local Motion also makes surf styled T shirts and good for tossing around. Die hard Hawaii fan?, get the Maile flag. the fit of these T shirts are decent, but i wouldn't say it's as fitted as Billabong or Ripcurl's athlete fit. even the previous Hollisters fit better. but sometimes it's the graphics, isn't it?

Mighty Mouse: by Apple

Tuesday, August 02, 2005

Apple released the all new updated Apple Mouse, called the Mighty Mouse. at first glance, it looks a lot like the Apple Mouse Pro, with no buttons or scroll wheel. under that hood, in fact, it has 2 touch sensitive buttons for left and right clicking, a scroll BALL, and side buttons which are also programmable. So the scroll ball will allow scrolling on the 2D plane, and the squeeze buttons on the side can activate dashboard, expose (which i love using) or anything else you choose. it's about time Apple came out with a 2 button mouse, but i didn't think it would be this cool. all white, no buttons, touch sensitive, all programmable, scroll ball (that also acts as a 3rd button, clickable), optical tracking, and side squeezing buttons make this the ultimate mouse for Macs... Mighty Mouse is here to save the day! [equipbug]
cost: 49.00 USD

And Then There Were None

Sunday, July 31, 2005

This is the first Agatha Christie book that i have read, and this is also the first book that i read non-stop until the very last page .. until all my questions are answered. i really love it and i'm going to read her other books soon!
This book is about a story of ten people, each with something to hide are invited to a lonely mansion on Indian Island by a host who fails to appear. On the island they are cut off from everything but each other. One by one, the guests die .......
it was first published as 'Ten Little Niggers' by William Collins Sons & Co. in London in 1939, and as 'And Then There Were None' by Dodd, Mead & Co. in New York in 1940. oh! .. the ten little nigger ..... 'the ten little nigger boys went out to dine; one chocked his little self and then there were nine. nine little nigger boys sat up very late; one overslept himself and then ...................'

I just can't resist anything Yamaha comes out with, especially when it makes music and looks good. the new Clavinova electronic Piano has 88 keys and 3 pedals. 3 Grand Piano sounds, 2 electronic pianos, Harpsicord, Church organ, guitar, Strings etc etc. basically, it's got the standard Yamaha sounds, adjustable keys and the whole schibang. it's got aux in / out, MIDI and head phones. i just wish they had a USB controller as well so that i can connect it to my Garageband. but this Clavinova is not about function as much as looks. just look at it... the orange, wow.
This thing will cost you 451,500 Yen! but maybe it's all worth it. [equipbug]

Zen again..

Creative never stops trying to better the iPod, and if it wasn't for the hype and media, i would say the Zen portable players are better. In our previous coverage, we compared the Micro and iPod mini to find that the Zen Micro is in fact far better. Check it out HERE. now the "charisma of Zen" is out with the Neeon, where the MP3 player can skin itself into many different looks. the basic player looks good in all black, but style it with your Stik-On, and it's a whole different look. the LED backlit screen has 7 different colors to fit your mood, the basic player can also come in 10 different metallic colors, spanning the whole rainbow and more, it is thin and holds 5 GB of music or data, 16 hours of playback, built in voice recorder, and 4 stik-on themes. their website HERE: [equipbug]

Blog Review: Dessert First

Just as i was exploring other blog sites, i came across a nice one where Desserts come first. the site has beautiful photos and the recipes for all the little desserts it introduces. it's a nice read and probably worth trying out. i particularly enjoy seeing the photos of "Taho Man". this looks absolutely awesome, i wish i had more time to bake up some of that! The blog is apparently managed by someone called "Lori" from the Philippines. i've always liked their cakes and desserts, but rarely have the opportunity to make them. Now i can "attempt" to make my own, thanks Dessertfirst! check out their site HERE: [equipbug]
