Bontrager Aeolus 3 D3 Bearing

I purchased a set of these wheels online 2nd hand and while they’ve been really good to use, servicing them have been a nightmare and has cost me a lot more than what I have imagined. After winning them on Ebay for just over a $1000 I used them on a Gran Fondo with a few steep climbs, they did …

Macbook Pro’s are no longer affordable

Being one of the affected users of the MacBook Pro 2011 gpu issue, I swore to myself that my Mid-2012 MacBook Pro will be the last one I ever own.

Asus PQ321 – 4K Eye Candy

With the photography gigs becoming more frequent and the need for correct colour reproduction on my images becoming a priority, I find myself looking for monitors that will deliver just that. I’ve recently had 10 x 8″x10″ images printed which I had edited and applied some filters on Adobe Lightroom 4, they came out over saturated nowhere near the quality …

Palm Beach

Palm Beach is located approximately 40km north of the Sydney CBD and is a spot where I’ve never been before until the other day when I took my wife and daughter there. It’s a beautiful spot and I can imagine that it would be busy during the weekends with families and their kids flocking to the beach during the warmer …
