Want to do a full post about my new Kindle Oasis. In short, it’s really great to read books on. Kindle has the benefit of not allowing you to get distracted unlike reading on an iPad or Phone. But the Oasis is on another level compared to the Paperwhite and other models.

I just listened to an episode of Mac Power Users with Marton Reece and it made me want to try and use Micro.Blog. I still want to do long posts but this will be nice to just share quick thoughts, a picture or a link.

Techuisite: the name.

Now before I go further I feel like I should explain the name for my site. Techuisite (pronounced like exquisite but with “tech” in front instead of “ex”) is a play on the words technology and requisite.

Technology is self explanatory.

The definition of requisite is, “made necessary by particular circumstances or regulations”.

In my opinion, technology is becoming a very important part of society, you could say it’s becoming a necessity by society.

I have been wanting to start a personal blog for awhile. I have many opinions and a lot of those opinions are revolved around technology. But to start a blog requires a good name. The past year I have been in pursuit of the perfect name for my blog.

When I started to build my schedule for the last semester at college, I came across the same word that most students cringe at, prerequisite. Prerequisite courses are courses that need to be fulfilled before registering and taking the next course.

This word stuck with me. I looked up the definition of requisite (prerequisite without the “pre”) and it was what I felt technology was to me and the world around me. Techuisite was thus born, and not only does the name have a meaning I was looking for but it also sounds and looks cool.

My new hobby.

I am on the brink of finally graduating from college and because of this I am hoping I will have a lot more time on my hands to try a hobby I have been thinking of pursuing for some time..

a blog.

I hope to dive into technology that interests me not only as gadgets but how they fit in my life. I don’t really have a specific goal for Techuisite yet but I am hoping by keeping my options open, it will spark new and creative avenues for me to explore along the way.

Stay tuned.
