Tracking a flight

Aviation technology has always fascinated me. From booking a flight that can happen from a million different places to how a flight is tracked all over the world, it has never failed to amaze me. Recently, I discovered this cool site where you can track the live status of any flight that’s currently airborne. As my brother headed for Germany, his first flight from Bangladesh did not have a tracker it in, but his second flight did have a tracker. As a result, as you can see above, I was able to view the live position of his flight just like he was able to view it on his personal monitor for the in-flight entertainment system.

When the flight had a tracker, it became a lot easier just to watch where the aircraft currently is.

MacBook Pro speakers

One of the coolest things about the new MacBook Pro is the quality of the speakers. The first few times I played music after getting it, I literally had to look at it and be like wow that’s something! Especially at the 15-inch model, the bass is pretty great for a laptop.

Three-Screen Eyefinity

Gaming on a three-monitor set up has always been on my wishlist. However, the fact that I don’t really need three monitors for anything else has always kept me from purchasing three monitors. Then I stumbled upon a friend’s office where he had the three monitor setup. It’s not perfect because I think you at least need 27-inch monitors to get the proper eyefinity feel. But it’s something. (Plus he didn’t have any of the mainstream games like NFS or Dirt series, and Asphalt didn’t do justice to the setup.)

Ginger Ale and Mac

Ginger Ale happens to be one of my favorite drinks that I have every time I’m abroad. The other favorite drink is Dr Pepper. Dr Pepper is not available in Bangladesh at all. Some brands of Ginger Ale can be found in some of the superstores in Dhaka, but they taste so bad that it’s better to keep waiting for the next time I’ll fly abroad.

Reviewing OnePlus 5

I have been using OnePlus 5, the flagship model from one of the most reputed yet smallest companies that produce Android phones, for the past week. This phone makes me want to go back to Android. It is extremely snappy, the customized Android called OxygenOS is properly optimized to take advantage of the ridiculous hardware configuration of Octa-core processor and 8 GB RAM.

The result? I got a phone that never lags, is literally snappier than my iPhone 6s to take photos, and is faster than Touch ID to unlock using my fingerprint. As you can tell, there are a lot of good things I have to say about this phone. For the upcoming full review, subscribe to ais.blog today.
