I now own a Samsung Galaxy S2, and it's awesome!

I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone last month with a 32GB memory card in it, giving 48GB of total memory, for around £375. I bought it from the Samsung shop in Central Festival Center in Pattaya. It is the best gadget/smartphone/pocket PC/piece of technology that I have ever owned, it really is perfect in every way!

I previously had a Nokia N97 for 2 years, which is by far the worst piece of technology I have ever owned, utter garbage, the complete opposite of the Galaxy s II (see my blog about that here: The Nokia N97 - it's rubbish really).

It was so bad all of the time that I swear I will never buy another Nokia product ever again, no matter what they make in future. Nokia - YOU SUCK!! What a rip-off of over £400 the damned thing was! It cost too much money for me to be able to change it until last month, but now I wish I'd bought an Android phone instead of the N97. Oh well, you live and learn!

If you're looking to get a new smartphone any time soon, go and get a Galaxy S II right now - nothing else, not even the latest iPhone, comes close to being as good for doing everything you want. The Galaxy S II is the best all-in-one mobile phone, pocket PC, mobile web browser, social network manager, HD photo and video camera, portable media player and pocket games console that there is!

Su and I have moved to Pattaya now

We got a bit bored living in the family village near Suphan Buri so we decided to come and live down here for a more interesting life, lol!

Actually, we're staying in Jomtien which is the next town down the coast from Pattaya City, although the two are only separated by a large hill on the beach side and there is no break at all between the two inland. Despite the nearness of the two, Jomtien is much quieter and more family-oriented than it's larger, brasher neighbour. It's the prefect place to live.

Here's a really useful guide to the area if you're ever thinking of coming here for a holiday, which I would thoroughly recommend to be honest, as it's only about an hour and a half from Bangkok by road, and it's great fun:

England holiday photos

Just about the most boring thing in the world sometimes, isn't it - looking at other people's holiday photos, lol. Anyway, yesterday Su created an album in Picasa of photos from our recent one month trip to England, and she's done a pretty good job of it too:

Cars 2 gets its UK release today

Just under a month after it was released in America, Pixar's "Cars 2" is released in UK cinemas today. I have seen it already and I thought it was brilliant fun, the perfect family film for this summer.

Pixar: Toy Story 3

Disney: The Princess and the Frog

Disney: A Christmas Carol

Pixar: Up

Disney: Bolt

Pixar's Cars 2 is released in the US today

Pixar's eagerly awaited new film "Cars 2" goes on general release in the US today. Early reviews of the movie have been somewhat mixed, but what do film critics know about anything, lol! (Only joking!) I'm sure it will be a great film for all the family to enjoy, just like last year's Toy story 3 and the other recent Pixar classics such as UP, WALL-E and Ratatouille.

Fans in the UK will have to wait until July 22nd to see it, but at least that's a bit less of a wait that usual for Pixar's films to cross over the Atlantic Ocean!

To celebrate the release of Cars 2 today here are 12 official Cars Flash online games featuring fan favourites Lightning McQueen, Mater, Doc Hudson, Luigi, Guido, Flo and Ramone that you can play completely for free:

  Cars: McQueen and Mater Tractor Tipping

  Cars: Lightning McQueen's Desert Dash

A special year for Mario and Sonic

As I mentioned over in my blog yesterday, this year is the 30th Anniversary of Mario, and the 20th Anniversary of Sonic.

The first ever Mario game, the original Donkey Kong arcade game, appeared in 1981. Although the hero character of that game was originally known as Jumpman, he quickly became known by his now world famous name instead, and since then Mario has appeared in over 200 different games.

The first ever Sonic the Hedgehog game appeared on June 23, 1991 on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive 16-bit games console, and a few months later on Sega's Master System and Game Gear 8-bit games consoles as well.

Over the years since their creation they have become the two best-known video game characters in the world.

CG cartoons on YouTube

I have just been watching some great computer animated cartoons in this YouTube channel: CGcartoons4u. There are three cartoons in there from the Blender Foundation which are as good as any of the stuff put out by the major studios. Take a look and see for yourself, as I am pretty sure you will be impressed.

All the very best for 2011 (or 2554 as the year is here in Thailand)!
