I speculated about the sublime in a previous article. Immanuel Kant made a distinction between mathematical and dynamic sublime. Continue reading “The skyscrapers | The sublime created by humans”
On September 12 Apple presented the 2018 iPhone lineup made of iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max ( nicknamed iPhone Christmas) and the iPhone Xr.
The iPad came out in 2010 and it was a flat screen surrounded by wide bezels with a home button. Thick and very heavy, it was capable of just basic functions and iOS was not optimized for the larger screen. Honestly, even today with iOS 12 soon to be released, the operating system should be further enhanced.
Our life is now in a world made by 0 and 1. It looks like this, like an hard disc.
When iPhone SE was announced back in 2016 I was surprised.
The only not flagship iPhone that came out was the iPhone 5c (as for color). Presented together with the iPhone 5s it had the one year old A6 chip and no Touch ID. It was a flop, bad design, lousy specs at a excessive price.
The SE instead is basically an iPhone 6s enclosed in an iPhone 5 body. Continue reading “iPhone SE, is it worth it in 2018?”
I used to think that the day would never come (Omissis) To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear I used to think that the day would never come That my life would depend on the morning sun
New Order – True Faith
I’m going to reflect here about the big excitement and enthusiasm that this movie can give and I will propose a possible interpretation of this complex world. Is Patrick Bateman a killer? Is it all just a dream?
Warning: spoilers ahead
American Psycho is the story of Patrick Bateman, an handsome New York investment banker working in his father’s firm. His “golden” world is made of Michelin starred restaurants and Amex Platinum credit cards.
Our feet bear all of our weight and they can affect our whole posture. That’s why it’s important to choose good shoes that supports our anatomical features and differences.
Flying is a metaphor of changing, freedom, leaving the problems behind us, being bold and brave. The dream of the human kind since the beginning of time (honorable mention to Icarus, the man who flew too high in his quest to glory), is now possible trough magnificent machines called airplanes. Not only the aeronautical engineering has changed over the years but the interior design of the planes has even more. First class in the 60’s were just comfortable seats with a good amount of reclining. Today this is called premium economy class.
After reviewing the business class it’s time to make a left turn when boarding the plane and head to the 14 suites of the first class, to discover its wonders and its surprises. Continue reading “Emirates | First class review on the Airbus A380”
There’s a battle going on in the sky where the contenders periodically present their new products like Apple presents the new iPhone at a keynote: the first and business class. They are complex products formed by the seat design, the amenity kit, the menu, the service and the extras offered. This is a mixture of hardware, software (the inflight entertainment) and human touch.I’m going to review the business and first class of Emirates on the Airbus A380. Be aware that, especially for the business class, the configuration is different if you fly on a Boeing 777. Don’t worry, when you book the flight you will see the aircraft. Although the aircraft can be changed last minute due to operative reasons, this occurrence is extremely rare especially between different planes like the 777 and the a380, which are basically the only two planes in Emirates fleet. Let’s start with the business and, in the next article, let’s finish in style with the most luxurious product. Continue reading “Emirates | Business class Review on the Airbus A380”
