MY FAVOURITE GADGET
My favourite gadget has to be my MacBook Pro 2015 with 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. It has been making my work easier and delivers perfect balance of power and performance.
FEATURES I LIKE THE MOST
The retina display is its beauty that makes watching movies a pleasant experience. It is fast, I mean blitzkrieg fast! And the battery life, I was blown away by it – 10 to 12 hours on battery.
GADGET ON MY WISHLIST
With everyone becoming health-conscious, I would love to make good habits so having a Fitbit Charge HR would make it easier.
DEVICE I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT
It has to be my watch, mobile phone and laptop.
GADGET THAT WOULD NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE
Mobile phones for sure.
IF I WERE A GADGET
I would be something like the Aviator watches – looking huge!
GADGET AS A GIFT FOR LOVED ONE/ SPOUSE
A watch to remind her of me whenever she checks the time.
A big LED TV
THE GAME I PLAY
Boom Beach and Clash Royal are taking up a lot of my free time.
MY FAVOURITE APP
My favourite app, which actually helps me through my day, is Pocket. It stores articles from the internet, saves
it and can be viewed offline. Pretty old, but I love its interface.
