reMarkable 2

Having a habit of keeping everything and thoughts on notes for a long time. After the loss of three of my notebooks last year when I was moving to California, I am forcing myself to scan all my notes every night before sleep. Actually scan+OCR already can solve my saving and retrieving requirements, but… it’s really painful to roll the immense boulder up a hill like Sisyphus every night. So I had the idea to digitalize my note-taking process.

I actually tried the iPad + Apple Pencil solution, yet the writing experience was really not quite good. The screen is too hard and too slippy if I write on it directly, yet to attach a ‘paper-like cover’ on the screen makes the display blurry so I paused the plan. Yet after I been smashed by a heavy giant book on my face when I was watching it on the bed last week, I finally decided to order the ReMarkable 2 notebook.

Well don’t ask me about my decision making process… I bought it simply just because The Verge gave it the highest rate (at least to me) among all the e-ink notebooks.

The ones I bought from the official website are ReMarkable 2 (USD 399) + The pencil with an eraser (USD 99, and the funny thing is that I need to pay 50 extra dollars to get the digital eraser… I miss the time when I was young and eraser is 0.5 dollars each) + polymer weaver folio. ReMarkable is very efficient and I got all of them only 4 days after I placed my order. Shipped from China (of course..)

If you pronounce BMW out loud your hear “Bee Em Double You”. As with many things we like and I guess dislike, we tend to give cars shorter and easier to pronounce names, kind of to bring them closer to you and make them your own. So owners all over the world started giving these shortened personal names to the cars “Bimmers”.

烈焰小钢炮:R.A.T.M红魔版

心水MadCatz的鼠标很久了,从R.A.T.5看到R.A.T.7又从M.O.U.S.9看到R.A.T.M。但即使是遇到了M.O.U.9八十刀的好价也没有入手,毕竟MadCatz没有用过,网上风评质量不稳定。于是一直一直拖着,直到双十一京东出现了199-40的特价。国行嘛,京东嘛,用的不爽毕竟还有退路。遂抓住机会入手了R.A.T.M。

其实一开始也没有特定要买哪只鼠标的,在我看来他们家的鼠标无非是长得像变形金刚和长得很像变形金刚两种。不过作为一只业余纠结症患者,下单前也在有线的R.A.T.5和R.A.T.M之间徘徊了许久。最后拦住准备回家的Fiona拍板购买R.A.T.M。

========好~接下来就是激(fa)动(wei)人(wu)心(qu)的开箱了~========

自从刘大程序猿买了X100s,对我一直挂机的福伦达50/1.8的体积的怨念越来越大。以致这两天甚至想要暂时放弃“蓄谋已久”的单车购买计划,先行更换一只新的挂机头。刚好,趁着到处了解各种标头的机会,遍历一下我用过的那些标头。

先说说现役这只福伦达镜头。此头全称应该是Voigtlander Color-Ultron 50 1.8.(话说我对福伦达这个名字一直有种奇怪的偏爱,尤其喜欢它的花体logo)。据说当年禄来工厂失火搬到新加坡后就由福伦达代工,后来福家自己出了只小标头,用的便是禄来的技术。
