Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/…

Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I’m hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I’ve waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens!

Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continues to age and the market gets even more competitive with new consoles such as the Xbox Scorpio, PS4 Pro, and (soon to be released) Nintendo Switch, which means the standard Xbox One, PS4 Slim, and possibly Wii U will need to discount their inventory to see a strong finish this year.

PC Gamers are not to be forgotten, RIGHT NOW amazon has awesome Black Friday deals on headsets, lightup keyboards, game controllers, gaming mice, and more. There are some great deals such as headsets for 65% off, hot new release games for both console and pc at up to 75% off and many more.

Amazon even has a page set up specifically for gaming deals here: http://amzn.to/2evLcYi

or a general one for Electronics here: http://amzn.to/2evMYZH

I’m also needing a new gaming laptop, and Amazon has a page for PC and Laptop deals here: http://amzn.to/2elLmON

Video Games not your thing? Maybe you want some boardgames, legos, cute plushies, dolls, or figures? If so amazon also has a page for you here: http://amzn.to/2fp9ssJ

And the sales will continue into cyber monday as well and Cyber Monday has it’s own page for deals which will be located at http://amzn.to/2fk9JB3 once it goes live later this month.

Why Iphone 6 Plus is the best Smartphone for Female Gamers

I’m currently lusting after an Iphone 6 Plus, but by time I fulfill my contract, to get the upgrade discount, I’m pretty sure the Iphone 7 will be out. I’ve never owned an Iphone. I had androids for years, ever since the first motorola droid, with the slide out keyboard. About a year ago now I bought a windows phone. I’m always an early adopter of technology, but windows is very disappointing in two areas. First, the app store, no good games, despite, Microsoft’s recent announcement that windows 10 will allow developers to easily port their games to the platform at just the switch of a button. Secondly, no accessories available for the phone in store, some may be available online, but really, I feel jealous of all the cool accessories and cute beautification elements that go into the Iphone.

I own an Ipad 2 (the old one, before “Air”) and the app store on Ipad is amaze-balls. There are so many free Otome games and Visual Novels. I’ve realized that I’m more of a casual gamer these days. Maybe I’ll write a blog post about that sometime too. Don’t get me wrong, I love my PC and Console games too, but we’re seeing so many great mobile titles lately, especially asian developed titles (anime games, rpgs, visual novels, otome games, dating sims, etc). The App store has hundreds if not thousands of these styles of games which get often neglected in the next gen consoles and PC lineups.

I love my Ipad and play it daily… and yet… since it’s the Wifi only model… and also due to size/weight, It just is not practical to always have on my person, the way an Iphone would be… For breaks at work, lunch, commutes, waiting rooms at appointments, or while waiting for food in a restaurant, etc.

The Ipad also can’t be customized as cutely, and femininely as the Iphone.

They also make cute wallets and clutches to carry your Iphone, and your ID, and maybe 2 or 3 credit/debit cards and some money. — I had similar wallets like this for my Galaxy Note. But I have not found any for my Windows phone.

The larger screen of the Iphone Plus, makes it better for gamers who spend a large amount of time looking at their screens.

My next phone for sure will be an Iphone. I keep entering contests (not the scammer ones lol just legit ones), and hoping and praying to win one, or enough moola to buy one, before my contract expires next year.

However, the Iphone 7 is looking to be even better for us girls, who, if you’re like me, LOVE taking photos. That’s because rumor has it that Iphone 7 will feature a much improved camera, using multiple sensors, to aid in low-light photography and image stabalization technology (already present in the Iphone 6 Plus).

If you’re a female gamer, who likes any of the above mentioned styles of games, or regards your phone as a fashion accesory, the Iphone is the ONLY way to go, in my opinion. And if you’re worried you might miss some of your existing android apps, check out BlueStacks which allows you to play android games on your PC. I use it to play Soccer Spirits, because that game doesn’t run well on my Ipad. But you can access any game on the google play store (you still have to pay if you want to play a paid game). Unlike other Android emulators, the playstore is built directly into Bluestacks and its very easy to use without having to patch or create other work arounds which may be difficult for non techsavy gamers.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Camera Phone Preview

UPDATE 6/22/15 SO I’ve Now Owned This Phone for about a year! Check out my full review HERE

nokialumia nokialumia2One of the products that I plan to buy sometime in 2014, is the Nokia Lumia 1020. I plan to buy this device for full price out of contract. It’s $500, in this way, but it’s still the most affordable DSLR Camera on the market today. For those who are willing to sign a new contract with AT&T, the camera phone becomes just $99 with a new service agreement.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotomaf/10448232646/player/284396da2b

Even at the $500 price tag though it’s still the best buy for casual photographers who want a cheap DSLR camera. Most similarly priced cameras are only what they call “point and click” cameras. They have lower Megapixels and often are less feature-rich than most DSLR cameras on the market today.The Sony Cybershot Hx300 digital camera is only 20.4 MP and retails for $499. The Canon EOS Rebel T3i digital camera features a meager 18 MP and costs nearly $700. Nikon’s D3300 features 24.2 MP and will retail for $649.95 when it is released later this year.

Well then what would a 40mp camera from another company other than Nokia cost? Far more than any regular non professional photographer would pay. We’re talking upwards of $10,000 just for the camera, then you add on all the lenses and attachments…. they just aren’t intended for the average everyday consumer. The furthest that our consumer technology has come is around 25mp in the “affordable range”. So as Nokia says in their branding and slogan, “nothing else even comes close”. However, this price can vary widely. To illustrate, the two most well known 40 mp cameras on the market today are the ultra compact (but still larger than the nokia lumia 1020), Sigma DP2 Merril, retailing at $1,400 and the big beefy, Pentax 645D retailing around $7,000.

I understand that there are many other considerations aside from just megapixels too when deciding on a DSLR camera.

ISO is a big factor for low light or moving images.

Shutterspeed can also be a decisive factor for many people.

And zoom or macro capabilities are also another consideration to take into account.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/karabulev/9261058613/player/6150205f7e

The Nokia Lumia 1020 boasts about it’s enhanced low-light image capabilities and large sensor size which gathers more light.

It however is left behind when it comes to shutterspeeds and macro shots.

However, it gains points with it’s stylish slim and light weight design which attracts people who are put off by the heavy weight of traveling with a more traditional DSLR.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/34337249@N02/10915406366/player/1ffe21f176

There are also a number of lenses and attachments available (for any camera phone, not just the nokia lumia) that are compatible as well to help improve your shots.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/anporto/11047373066/player/42fc0c738a

All and all, for the power and price, as well as it’s compact travel-friendly design, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is revolutionizing casual “consumer” photography. It’s now easier than ever to become a hobby photographer.

It also comes in 3 colors, neon yellow, black, or white. I wish it came in the red color like the newer nokia 1520

For those wanting it as a cellphone, which was it’s original intention afterall, it’s on sale for just 99 dollars with a new contract under AT&T. You can buy it without a contract as well and use it on your own carrier which is what I intend to do. I use walmart’s Straight Talk cell service which is just 45 a month for unlimited talk, text, and data, so I can share all the photos I take easily and quickly to my instagram, facebook, twitter, or email, without having to be near a wifi hotspot. I’ve never used a windows phone so I can’t comment on the interface or phone features itself, stay tuned for a full review in the coming months once I have purchased the Nokia Lumia 1020.
