I'm a gaming accessories hater-turned-fan, especially after trying Steelseries' Rival 500 (review here). I then bought a MSi laptop (which happens to have Steelseries keyboard), and the next thing I knew, I was already entrenched in Steelseries' ecosystem. Funny how your mind can be changed just by trying out the real-life product.

I'm on the verge of buying their mousepad, but that's a story for another day. What I'm going to talk about today is the latest mouse on their lineup, the Rival 600. Its beautiful design and symmetric streams of colors enticed me into buying it. I've used it for both gaming and working for approximately a week now, and I'm ready to share my experience. Okay, so shall we start?

Parallel Space Review - Feels Like Having Two Phones

Until a couple of months ago, I've been having two smartphones with me. That's because I still believed that one phone will never be able to have two WhatsApps. If it was, it would take a toll on the battery.

However, I then felt burdened. Not only because I had to maintain both of them, but also because one felt neglected. So, I decided to give MIUI's Dual Apps a shot (I've been a loyal Xiaomi fan)... And it works like a charm.

Okay. One device was sold. Then, I needed to switch phone because mine was actually my father's. Okay, I decided to move to Zenfone, simply because I wanted to try something different. Then, I missed MIUI's Dual Apps. The ZenUI 3 at the time didn't support twin apps yet.

So, I went ahead and tried Parallel Space. It kept coming up in search results, not sure if it was good marketing or the app was really good. And you know what, I've been happy. I even bought…

Infinix Zero 5 Review: A Worthy Flagship Upgrade

Even though I thought I already suspended device reviews, an opportunity suddenly popped up. My father decided that he wanted to try out Infinix's latest Zero flagship, the Zero 5. I suspect there were a few things that tempted him to upgrade: Dual camera, large screen, and most importantly: insanely affordable price. Yeah, the latter is the most important because at the moment, there's no phone at that price range which has 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

The specs seem beastly. Add a slew of accessories into the packaging and dedicated SD card slot (in addition to 2 SIM slots), you'll have yourself a great flagship. My father chose the flashy red color, and fortunate enough, I have the chance to try the phone out for a week, before sending it to him.

So, the million-dollar question is, is it worth your money? Or rather, why is it worth your money? Let's find that out!

I'm pretty sure that while Windows 7 and 8 still has a considerable market share, most of you have tasted Windows 10. During its first setup, we were introduced to Cortana and a bunch of configuration which may concern our privacy. As if that's not annoying enough, I found myself facing another problem: automatic installation of a few apps. Even after uninstalling them, they kept coming again.

Don't get me wrong, Windows 10, in my opinion, is the best Windows yet in terms of features and UI. However, Microsoft seems to take on this software-as-a-service a little too seriously. What I fear the most is when we no longer have complete control over installing these so-called "sponsored" and "we think you might love" apps.
The Problem So, the apps that Microsoft kept installing in my PC was the infamous Candy Crush Soda Saga, Royal Revolt, and Dragon-something, I forgot. You may have a di…
