Ever since I was a child, I have been competing with my little sister in everything we do. When we were in high school, I was in the Top Ten Honor Roll. She would then get in the Top Three Honor Roll. When we were in college, I was in the Dean's List and she graduated with a Cum Laude. When I decided to take Masters in Business Administration - Juris Doctor, she then entered Masters in Business Administration - Medicine.
I was struggling with studies and house chores while she had the time to play, help in our family business and do house chores. I was so frustrated I asked her how does she manage to do all that. She told me that the secret is to be resourceful. You should have the best gadgets to help you manage your life. Following that advise has made my life better.
So when she bought a net book to aid her in her studies, I bought a laptop. But then she bought a tablet. Just now, she told me that she is going to buy a smart phone. Well, this time I will have the advantage because I have discovered the new LG Optimus 2x and Optimus Black.
I find the LG Optimus 2x best-suited for my needs as a MBA-Student, an employee and a blogger. But if I have a lot of cases to read then I could use the LG Optimus Black because it has the brightest, clearest and readable screen. I could already imagine how efficient I can be by having one gadget for all my needs and how much energy I can save by carrying less everyday...A smart phone these days are defined by their:
