Nicki Minaj teamed up with Beats and released the last piece of her pink Beats collection. Her own version of the famous Beats Pro is called the Pink Pros. This was released in celebration of the 3rd anniversary of her album Pink Friday, following the Pink Pill portable speaker and Urbeats earbuds which were released earlier. Aside from it being pink, it caught my attention because I actually liked her Pink Friday album. Superbass rap, anyone?
Nicki Minaj Pink Beats Collection – Pink Pro($499.95), Pink Pill($199.95), Urbeats($99.95)
What an eye candy! The Pink Pros is available at the Beats by Dre website for $499.95. Quite overpriced but I’m tempted! I had a pink Diddybeats in the past I purchased for P11,500 (I know, I know) from the Power Mac Store, and I can say that although it might be a bit overhyped, the sound quality is good. I enjoyed my earbuds since that was the time I listened mainly to bassy-droppy-hiphoppy music. The bass is powerful.
The whole collection can be viewed here: http://www.beatsbydre.com/pinkfriday
This sounds like a really nice Christmas gift idea for her. What can you say about this collection?
PS: RIP Diddybeats
Oh, and sorry for the pink
Good news for all gamers (or keyboard enthusiasts) out there who love pink! I have found what could be the girliest keyboard around. The Ducky Shine 2 was released in a limited edition pink color. Although Ducky is a lesser known brand here in the Philippines, I know that a lot of gamers use this brand. I am not what I would call a gamer per se. I did play a couple of games in the past but I wouldn’t brand myself a gamer. Still, of course, I wouldn’t pass up the chance. I have always wanted to use a mechanical keyboard anyway.

The keyboard is backlit with white LED lights and the keycaps are pink. I chose the Cherry Blue switches because I like my keys snappy. This means that I have to press harder for the stroke to register. It’s definitely softer than a typewriter but it’s just a bit less noisy, if not as. If I am gonna use a mechanical keyboard, I might as well choose something that feels like one. Brown is too soft for me and I have the feel that it might get stuck (although of course it won’t).

Everything looks better with the lights turned off!
There are many options for the lighting. It could either be pulsing or this setting (pictured below) I like wherein the keys only light up when pressed. Extra red keycaps are also included in the box.
I know that 6,000+ for a keyboard is too expensive, but believe you me, when it comes to key feel, durability and maintenance, mechanical keyboards are the best. They wouldn’t be expensive for no reason.
Now the next thing to do is to find nice keycaps to replace these with. I hope I can find some whites and light pinks
Does anyone of you like customizing mech keyboards? Are you gamers?
Samsung has officially launched the Blush Pink variation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in South Korea last November 11, having been available only in black and white. It seems that release in other regions is underway. It’s got a cooler hue than the previous pinks we’ve seen on the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.

Hopefully, I can get my hands on the actual one so I could decide if I’d be getting one. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a release soon.
