Porn VR Room Opens Up at Tokyo, Japan

Tech and Porn once again proved that they are much appropriate with each other, as the first Porn VR Room opens up at Tokyo, Japan. It’s no joke friends, with the company behind it offering a free demo experience when it launched. They are even targeting to compete with hotels – viewing them as rivals. Seriously, man. The aptly named company behind it – Soft On Demand, charges 550 Yen for 60 minutes of service, and if that is not enough for your carnal requirements, you can rent the room for a whole day at 3, 150 Yen. That’s 240 Pesos and 1,...

All I Want This Christmas: A Freakin Hand Canon

As a passionate tech blogger, a product reviewer, and a PC enthusiast, I cannot simply deny the importance of a good camera. In fact, I value cameras so much; they are probably the next best thing to coffee since I cannot blog without both. Its core purpose is so simple, yet it holds a very significant value to any bloggers out there: Enough to make, or even break articles. It helps me to tell my story, enables me to deliver my product reviews in great detail, and it pretty much defined what Tech Porn really is. We, like any other blog sites out there, started from humble beginnings. I once touted a very simple camera, given by my parents as a gift about a year ago. Canon A2200 is the name, and it is quite astonishing to think that a simple point and shoot camera with such a small image sensor actually paved the way for your dear editor to jump start tech blogging. Yes, we started from this. Actually reminds me of the days when everyone was holding an SLR at an event, while I’m boastfully holding the A2200 with a translucent piece of card taped to its flash to mimic a diffuser. Gawd knows how funny it looked back in the days. There are some instances when some random guy pushed my bearings, asking me annoyingly why...
