Erecting Fine Line Between Video Games and E-Sports

Posted on March 20, 2017 at 10:50 AM


I haven't played Dota and Counter-Strike for more than a year, while previously I spent no day without playing each of those every single day.

When I was in Shanghai two good friends encouraged me to get back in Steam to join their fight to defend the ancient. So I downloaded those huge patch files and got my fingers ready to pawn some noobs.

A Prelude in Honor of KLOUT

If you haven't heard of it, KLOUT rate your social media impact with a score, and in the US, some restaurant and services might give you discounts based on your KLOUT score, in hope that they get more exposure through you promoting them in social media.

Today, few and fewer people know KLOUT, and fewer services established a partnership with it. The reason? Because engagement in social media has become more complex than ever. I...

4 Things to Learn from Spotify

Posted on March 20, 2017 at 10:45 AM

As per June 2016, Spotify still leads the music streaming industry. There are arguments as of why Spotify remains unbeatable by newcomers, but here is my perspective as a Spotify User.

5 Reasons Why Logistics Don't Care about GO-SEND

Posted on March 20, 2017 at 10:40 AM

Adam Smith even coined the term 'invisible hand' to refer that it is supply and demand that helps price reach the equilibrium point suitable for both parties.

Life's Good. But There's an End to That.

*I originally published this writing before the release of G5 and K series in Indonesia. 


Looks like some people in LG Indonesia share the same opinion as me. In addition to G5 and the updated Stylus phone, LG Indonesia is back with middle and low end phones through their promised K series.

Nikon's Three Musketeers

Posted on March 20, 2017 at 10:30 AM

UPDATE: The series is officially discontinued, citing huge loss and lack of confidence in the demand due to smartphones. While Nikon has issued a statement that it will focus on high-end professional cameras, I could not understand this decision as this DL series could've been the perfect niche servings that can rejuvenate Nikon back in the travel camera market.
