It boggles my mind whenever I hear someone say they aren't interested in using Twitter because they don't know what to say on Twitter. I consider Twitter to be a playground where you can say whatever you want. While you can attach media such as pictures, videos and links, what makes Twitter special is its 140 character limit per tweet. You can only say so much just a little less than the character limit of an SMS message. So, how do you use Twitter? I'm going to teach you.

I'm going to be skipping a Camera section in my review as I don't feel comfortable talking photo quality due to my inexperience with judging photos and the inability to compare photos to other comparable devices.

It's been a while since I've posted. This is going to be a small one about something I want to do when I get the chance.
I'm someone who's very connected with the internet. I tweet everyday, I check Facebook too often and I use Snapchat just as much as I do Facebook. Clearly I'm very much connected to the social internet. Maybe too connected.
One week, I want to get away. I want to give myself a week to disconnect from all forms of social media and disconnect from the internet. I want to also disconnect from all sorts of text messaging, so that the only method of communication between myself and another party is through voice.
What will I do in that week? I don't know. Go out? Sleep all week? Read? There are many things I can consider doing, but what I want to make sure is that throughout this week, I spend it with myself and use it to reflect on my life. Where I want to go, who I want to be etc. without all the distractions of the internet.
I'll probably regret doing this on day 1, and maybe even not earn anything out of it by day 7. But this is something that I know I need, and I want to take that chance sooner rather than later.

When Google announced the L developer preview back at Google I/O 2014, a lot of people -- myself included -- were excited to see what the future of Android would be. This wouldn't be another 4.X release, but a 5.0 release with many advancements to the Android experience. In October 2014, Sony announced that their Xperia Z devices would all be receiving Lollipop within the first quarter of 2015. While this wasn't as early of timing as other OEMs like Samsung and Motorola, it still got me excited that my (at the time) brand new Xperia Z3 and my 1.5 year old Xperia Tablet Z would receive Google's latest desert.
Lollipop on the Xperia Z3 has only rolled out in the Baltic regions as of March 16, and I got impatient waiting for a North American release, so I flashed the Generic Baltic firmware onto my device. I've been using the firmware for about a week, and I have to say my general impressions of Lollipop are mostly positive, but I have a few quirks.
