Pacquiao vs. Hatton Candid Reaction

Did you see that fight this past Sat­ur­day night? That was some crazy car­nage com­ing from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight some­one who is bad ass at the weight they’re fight­ing in. I’m talk­ing about the Manny “Pac­man” Pac­quiao vs. Ricky “Hit­man” Hat­ton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Bat­tle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s impor­tant or not, but these two are great fight­ers to each in their own right.

Any­ways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bachelor’s Party down in SoCal. I was ner­vous right to the first punch. Then Pac­man started set­ting up his com­bos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.

WTF?!?! I didn’t know it was going to be this damn excit­ing, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quickly grabbed my point-and-shoot cam­era, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hop­ing to get a can­did of everyone’s reac­tion to the rest of the fight.

Lo and behold—it turned out to be a reward­ing, stu­pen­dous and hilar­i­ous idea. They totally were busy cel­e­brat­ing the first round, and didn’t notice it at all. Funny-ass-hell.

Any­ways, I hope you like it!

DIY Helmet Cam for Snowboarding & Skiing

I ded­i­cate the fol­low­ing video to the homie Keno for sure! Haha…

He’s been think­ing of doing some­thing like this and usu­ally holds his Pow­er­shot with his right hand while going down the slopes. The only prob­lem with his tech­nique is that it some­what hin­ders his bal­ance. One the other hand, the only down side to prob­a­bly hav­ing the cam­era on your head is that you really got to be care­ful of how you ride, and not get into some sort of face plant, aka. kiss­ing powder =)

Here’s a live shot of it in use:

Phottix Grip vs. Canon BG-E2

I did some research and didn’t find any­thing too neg­a­tive towards get­ting this Phot­tix BP-40D vs a Canon BG-E2/BG-E2N as a grip for my 30D other than the make. The pro-point is that its only $75 shipped from Hong Kong to San Fran­cisco. It has the same fea­tures as its Canon coun­ter­part but for less. Here are some points from the eBay seller, ete­fore (aka. HK Sup­plies), of whom I got it from:

The New Canon 30D

Canon 30D

As I was doing my late-night news roundup, I stum­bled upon some inter­est­ing new Web 2.0 apps. The top two that are on my list to beta-test are Fold­era and Fly­spy. I can’t wait to see how Fold­era works, it seems that it’ll be use­ful at work and at home. As for Fly­spy, this thing should make it eas­ier for those of us “remotely” work­ing from home. I hope it saves me a ton of cash so I may have some left for some other good­ies later this year. Not to men­tion, a cou­ple of expenses dur­ing my big trips (Hawaii, Japan and P.I.).
