Setting resolutions in new year seems to be a trend these days as I find a lot of people tweeting about their new year resolution. However, I myself had some resolutions for the past year (2011) (click here if you missed that). Luckily, they came true! I mean, I was able to get everything I wanted to get in the year of 2011.

But what do I want to get in the year of 2012? Well, that’s a pretty hard question to answer. Back in 2010, I had some requirements. I needed a laptop. I needed a camera. So, I wished for them. And I somehow managed to get them. I still wish for a DSLR camera but I don’t require this. So, this isn’t necessarily in my resolution.

While you’re at it, let me remind you that I’m talking about gadgets. Yup, in this blog, I mostly talk about my life and my fanciness about technology and gadgets. So, when talking about resolutions, I solely mean gadgets. Now, what do I want to get? A MacBook Pro! Don’t ask me twice! I just want to get a MacBook Pro at any cost. I know sooner or later I’ll get one. But I don’t think I’ll be able to get this expensive machine in 2012. But it’s okay. All resolutions don’t come true, right?

pc vs mac
I actually had MacBook Pro in last year's resolution along with a windows machine. But I was able to get a PC laptop; not a Mac one.

Next up is a smartphone. I need to clear the fact that I’m not a smartphone (and tablet PC) freak. I don’t think I need anything else if my handset is compatible with Java applications. I only use Opera Mini for checking email and little on-the-go researching on Google and Wikipedia as well as eBuddy Mobile Messenger for chatting with my friends on Facebook, Yahoo and Google Talk. If these two apps run smoothly, and if the handset can be used as a modem for my computer, that handset will work pretty fine for me.

However, I still wouldn’t mind getting an affordable Android-run smartphone. I don’t think I’ll go for a tablet PC (unless it’s a low-priced well-configured Chinese device with “capacitive” touchscreen and minimum Android 2.3) because I don’t really need it. If it’s affordable and meets my minimum required configuration, I might get it for some off-time blogging and surfing purpose. But it’s not really into my resolution. But I’ll sure try to get an affordable Android device. Maybe around June-July or later, I’ll look for a good smartphone. So, that goes into my 2012 resolution list.

html and cssThere’s one more thing that I had in last year’s resolution which didn’t really come quite true. It’s learning web development. I’ve learned the basic of PHP and the structure of CSS, but I’m still not even an ‘immediate’ programmer at any of these languages. In this year, I want to learn complete HTML5 (note the 5), CSS3 and either JavaScript or PHP (I’m still not sure. I’ve been in this dilemma for quite some time now).

Oh, and I have one more resolution though this one’s not related to gadgets or any technical stuff. I wanna get this girl I have on my mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Shh, don’t talk about it anymore. Top secret.

So, that kind of wraps up my New Year’s Resolution. Now it’s your turn to speak up about your resolutions. If you have a blog, you just received an idea for your next post. Go write your post, come back, tell me in brief and share the link. I’ll be happy to read yours. If you don’t have a blog, don’t worry. You can share all of your resolutions in the comment form below. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Sorry about that. It’s so stupid that you can’t delete your own comments. I couldn’t see the 1st one so I had to comment again, and then I couldn’t see that one either… ugh.


    1. Don’t worry about that. I can delete duplicate comments. ๐Ÿ˜€

      You can’t delete your own comment is there for a reason. Imagine someone starts an illogical fight over some blog and at one point he removes all of his comments leaving the other replies (which you can guess will also be a little rude). When a third person lands on the blog, he’ll get a negative impression on the blogger without knowing who actually started the fight.

      I think it’s for better.


      1. Is that what you think or is it like “WordPress’s official reason”? Yeah that’s true seen from that angle… but sometimes if you write something and then regret it, for example say that you wrote something that turns out to be embarrassing… and you can’t do anything about it until the owner of the blog sees it and request him to delete it :-/.


        1. I don’t know as WordPress didn’t state anywhere (or I haven’t come across anything) why they made it impossible for readers to delete their own comment, but it’s standard in blogosphere. I’ve been to like 10 different community blogging platforms (some of them are hard coded) and never seen something where you can delete your own comment.

          In the case you’re referring to, I believe just regretting in public is the best way. When you’re being polite and sorry for anything, it just raises people’s respect for you, does not necessarily disrespect yourself for being down. ๐Ÿ˜›
