My Universum radio at university

Quelle International Universum TRN 3244 portable radio.

I just love this kind of gadgets. Not any iPod but having a shoulder strap for carrying around. It has even a headphone jack and of course wonderful lo-fi mono sound.

Some additional info about this beauty.

I recently bought iPhone 4 and it seems to change my photographic habits quite a bit.

I hated mobile phone cameras before this. I always wanted to have high quality photos and felt that mobile phone cameras are not for that. With the iPhone I discovered snap-shooting again. The instant feelings and their recording are the keywords when using my iPhone as a camera. I know that there are many other mobile phones having much better cameras (iPhone has only a 5 mpix camera) but more mpix are not needed for the use I am going for.

One big thing are the fantastic apps made for iPhone. Instagram was the first one I downloaded and it is so brilliant one. Second one was Hipstamatic which I have to explore more in the near future. And yesterday I got Camera+ which has some nice features for the “normal” shooting. Instagram and Hipstamatic are more for the vintage results.

All of those apps are so cool because you can instantaneously share your photos in Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, and other services. Snap a photo, edit it in the phone, and share. That’s it!

Lastly I’d like to apologize that I have been absent from this blog for a while. But I got the iPhone, and it is so much fun that you easily forget other things…
