Very rarely does one chance upon an external speaker that sounds just as amazingly good as it looks.
The Marshall Stanmore is, no doubt, one of those coveted devices. Its gorgeous classic looks invoke a sense of Rock ‘n’ Roll nostalgia that just begs to be brought home the moment you lay your eyes on it.
As I slowly opened the packaging of the Marshall Stanmore, I felt like a kid eagerly unwrapping a long awaited Christmas gift. At first, I was excited primarily because the Stanmore’s handsome appearance would make an absolutely wonderful conversation piece.
Everybody knows Mario’s. It is one of the very few restaurants in the country that have stood the test of time and perhaps one of the more prominent establishments frequented by people, young and old, who know good food.
I was recently at the Tomas Morato branch of Mario’s and had the opportunity to enjoy their very popular Classic Sunday Lunch Buffet with good friends who also happen to be fellow foodies (Notice how I inserted the word, “fellow” in there? Yep… self-professed foodie here! Haha!). These guys are some of the best in the food blogging industry.
I knew that my wife and I were in for a treat given that any time the words “Mario’s” and “buffet” come together, it is always cause for a gastronomical celebration.
A month after getting an iPad Mini, only now have we actually fitted our device with protective casing. I guess my wife wanted to savor its “commando look” before pimping it up with a much needed cover. Can’t blame us… you know how handsome these Apple gadgets are especially when struttin’ it around in all its ummm… nakedness.
My wife really loves the iPad Mini – It’s never a burden to bring along, the battery life seems to last forever and is just as functional as its big brothers sans the bulk.
There are a ton of iPad Mini cases in the market ranging from jelly-type protectors to novelty covers so choosing the right one gets pretty confusing. But in the end, it all boils down to personal taste and functionality.
This particular protective casing boasts of a leather finish which, in my opinion, gives the iPad Mini a more elegant and classy appearance (think “pogi points”, folks!) – it’s the kind of look that never goes out of style.
It also sports a built-in “Smart Cover” which automatically awakens your device or puts it to sleep whenever the case is opened or closed.
I was just going through a bunch of videos on YouTube earlier and stumbled upon a not so old song by Michael Buble entitled, “Everything”. And though it actually ain’t that new to me, it sounded quite fresh again after all these years.
It’s a wonderful song, really. Not to mention, Buble has a superb voice – the Sinatra of our generation, in my opinion.
Unlike most “disposable” tunes that are shoved down our throats ears on a daily basis over the radio nowadays (not ALL… but MOST), Michael Buble puts out instant classics. The kind of songs our children should be listening to more often.
