HTC One is better than Samsung’s S4

Samsung fined in Taiwan for ‘dirty tricks’ campaign against smartphone rival HTC

Taiwan fines Samsung $340,000 for bashing HTC

See an user comment (copied from above link):

I am a user from Taiwan. It's often to hear some placement marketing in live , but I don't think it's fair to blame competitors with fake comments and it's really cheating us on some famous forum in Taiwan like mobile01 , ptt and elase.

If someone ask a question like ' What about HTC one ?' and than there's another reply says "It's sucks , I just bought Samsung S2, and it's good. " ,it seems everything fine. Then we found , there's only one user account in asking and reply. Obviously someone forgot to switch accounts before answering. lol

Want to know what is HTC One? Check its wikipedia page here.

why everyone is running a half marathon

13 Oct

http://www.washingtonian.com/blogs/wellbeing/fitness/why-everyone-is-running-a-half-marathon-these-days.php

You should also try it! Start small, maybe run (or quick walk) 1 mile per day, and then gradually increase to 3 miles per day.

It is fun and it makes you feel good about yourself!

Induced/encouraged by a friend, I am really interested in half-marathon and even marathon those days.

Install Geany

10 Oct

Geany is a cool editor: http://www.geany.org/Download/Releases

I installed Geany on Ubuntu 12.04 and just want to share my experience.

1. Download source file, uncompress to a directory and then

./configure
make
sudo make install

Now you probably have some errors, most likely you need to install GTK library:


sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
sudo apt-get install intltool

2. Change color scheme in Geany
Download the geany themes, and then

unzip geany-themes-master.zip
cd geany-themes-master/
cp colorschemes/* ~/.config/geany/colorschemes/

3. Install snippets from here. The snippet function is really cool, see youtube video here. After download the snippet, simply copy it to your geany config directory:

cp snippets.conf ~/.config/geany/snippets.conf

I ran 13.36 mi in 1:48′:54” today
