It was very cold for the last 3 days of this trip, around 12C at the lowest and 21C at the warmest.

I guess the nearest place to compare it to is HKG.

I must say Taiwan did not disappoint the foodie in me. I think they have more variety of street foods vs HKG. I still adore cantonese cuisine but in the street foods category Taiwan wins by a mile.

They also have cheaper mobile data TW Mobile gives you unlimited data for 100NTD per day…

I really wasn’t able to go around and check out electronics or gadgets but they definitely have cheaper devices vs the PH.IMG_0469

As a side note. I saw a lot more cute women in Taipei vs 2 visits to HKG… just saying :P

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!

Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
