one small appliance and some accessories
Christmas is coming. To people live in Sydney it simply means scorching summer is coming, not beautiful snows. In early October Sydney experienced hottest October in record, then last week, we also experienced coldest October in record. To overcome the hot temperature, I bought a small fan for my room yesterday. (to Don: Antony is poor, he does not have an air conditioner.)
If you look at the above picture carefully, you can notice the remote has been covered in Glad Wrap to prevent dirt and grease. Covering remote controls with Glad Wrap is the first thing I do after putting batteries in. I am sure Rev. Dr. Wu Yi knows that very well.
(As usual, more photos followed...)
There are no special features on this small fan. In case you are interested, only the basic features such as: 3 breeze modes, soft touch controls, remote control, LCD display, LED indicators, 8 hour timer, oscillation, ionizer and small footprint.
The good thing about this fan, it takes very small footprint and it is very quiet. (to Don: Antony's office is very small.)
I also received some accessories today, ordered from Apple Online Store (Australia).
A second iPhone 3G Dock connector, a second Dock Connector to USB Cable, and leather hip case (Marware C.E.O. Premiere for iPhone 3G).
When I got my iPhone on the first day of sale, I bought Dock for it. However, it is positioned in my computer desk (as pictured on the right. It means that I can only sync and charge in my office. Recently, I've been using my MacBook Pro in the living room more often, and it seems like a great idea if I can also charge the iPhone in the living room.
I don't need to charge the iPhone every night, however keeping the iPhone on the Dock does make it look better.
The Marware leather hip case is the second-ever leather item I've ever bought. (The first leather item was the Belkin Leather Sleeve for my iPod touch.)
Just to complete this entry, I also purchased an AirPort Express on Jessica's behave. I bought two AirPort Expresses in 2004, back then, it was 802.11g technology. Apple han then upgraded the AirPort Express to much faster 802.11n technology.
Jessica bought one of my AirPort Express (802.11g), and she need another AirPort Express for indoor wireless network and AirTurns (streaming music).
It is not that I can't afford an air conditioner, but getting people to drill a hole and install a split-unit air conditioner seem to be a bit too much hassle.
