Quick Review on Sennheiser HD 600

Hey guys, finally got my hand on HD600 today!

Just a heads up, my previous headphone was FA-003 and it really serves its purpose well and is definitely the best bang for buck. In fact, I had been taking a great amount of notice about this HD600 vs HD650 debate for a very long time now but decided to go for FA-003 previously for lacking the bucks to buy one of this. One thing I dislike about FA-003 is that wearing it to listen for music for a long period always makes my head feel uncomfortable (even after adjusting the head band in various level), particularly the clamping force that I had. The listening experience is good, but the comfort always prevent me from really enjoying music for a long time.

PS Vita Unboxing!

Finally got my PS Vita today!!

Overall it cost me NTD 9410 (~RM 956) for all the items in the box and NTD 980 (~RM99) for Metal Gear Solid (US) and NTD 145 (~RM147)for Persona The Golden (JP).

The price for the console is actually NTD 9410 - NTD 2750 (the actual price for 32GB memory card (free due to promotion event by SEN in Taiwan) - NTD 580 for the 365 PSN Card (free) - NTD 190 for the AR Card) (free) = NTD 5890 (~RM598).

So here are some pictures for your viewing enjoyment.

[Tutorial] Enable network connection in Android x86 4.0 ICS using VirtualBox

If you're an Android developer like me, you'll come to hate the sluggish performance of the emulator that came bundled with the SDK. So you try to install Android x86 as a VM in Virtual Box. Things work out pretty good and there's no more annoyance of the slow down. But one thing that you'll realize fast enough is THERE IS NO NETWORK CONNECTION! Googling for this and you'll come across to many workaround, which you might find it not working.

Following the instruction below to get the network connection working in Android x86 4.0 RC (eecpc version) on VirtualBox.

Installing DLCs for Final Fantasy Theatrhythm (iOS)

If you were a FF fan like me, I believe you will feel happy when realizing that FF Theatrhythm was released on AppStore for Free. However, the developer had a plan behind that move, which is by implementing the dreaded DLC which will surely rip off your wallet unless you are uber rich. Purchasing all the songs will cost you more than twice the amount that you can pay for a 3DS version for similar game. Compared to the original release for 3DS, the iOS port has the RPG element removed. However it is compensented by offering several lengthly songs not available for the 3DS version, such as One-Winged Angel from FFVII: Advert Children.

Luckily there was a Thailand guy that had cracked all the DLCs and kind enough to share it with the rest of the world. Follow the instructions below to download the DLCs at zero $!

[Tutorial] How to port forward in VMware Fusion 5

1. Edit the NAT configuration file.

$ sudo vi "/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/vmnet8/nat.conf"'
