Samsung Galaxy Note 8, phone design and what to expect

Following the explosive failure of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 last year with their battery quality issues, Samsung has rather big shoes to fill with its successor to win back consumers trust. While Samsung has reassured us of their new commitments in producing phones now with more stringent battery quality checks, by putting their new flagship in the wild....

One Plus 5 dual camera phone

The One Plus 5 is promising 4G LTE phone which blends both design style and good specifications to good. It is one very sleek phone I can say which puts the design element up there with benchmark leaders Apple and Samsung. I was awestruck by the number of Chinese branded phones now popping up all over the world. Chinese...

Nokia 6 mid range Android phone

Nokia had once been a brand synonymous to phones in the late 90s, with more than 70% of the world’s market share at its peak under their belt, the Finnish brand was the go-to phone of any mobile warrior. Fast forward after 20 years of absence plagued with closures and takeovers, the Nokia brand aims to grab a share...

Garmin Vivoactive HR activity computer watch review

Running computers came a long way since their introduction as "integrated" sports telemetry equipment comprising of strap-on chest heart rate (HR) monitors and accelerometer footpods which you have to strap onto your running shoes. Polar Electro, the finish company who dominated the market with their running computers then, are notorious for such multi-device setups. However, such devices then are...

Microsoft hosted a gaming reception and showcase of their limited edition Xbox One S this evening at their Singapore headquarters in downtown Singapore. The presentation saw the introduction of the new white Xbox One S we last saw first released last June at E3. This revised version of Xbox One console, which was released last month, features new faster...

Microsoft Surface 4 Pro Singapore retail launch party (Device Review)

Microsoft introduced their newest addition to the Surface Pro line of 2-in-1 PCs with a bang at the MAD art gallery in Tanglin today. Riding on the success of previous Surface generations, Microsoft has stuck to the still-winning formula of a 2-in-1 platform in this 4th generation and improved on it incrementally with small nuances. Arthur Huang, Director of...

Blackberry Venice & Specs- an upcoming Blackberry phone you might actually want.

Phones with built-in hardware keyboards will always have a place in my heart and really are nostalgic. It reminds me greatly of the old O2 XDA series of Windows phones I used to own. If such hardware keyboard phones are to your liking, Blackberry's new QWERTY slider, the Blackberry Venice is one phone worth getting excited about. Initially leaked...

Tomtom Multi-sport Cardio Running Computer Watch review

The TomTom multi sport cardio watch is one of the few advanced all-in-one running computers available in the market today. The brand we come to know synonymous in in-car GPS navigation systems had expanded their product line into the now-hugely popular fitness tracker market. The device comprises of an integrated heart rate (HR) monitor together with GPS tracking all...

I am a certified amateur (ham) radio operator!

Passed my radio exams today and I am on the way into obtaining my official callsign from Ofcom in a few days time! Ham radio is something greatly enjoyed by both the young and old here in the UK. In other to operate radio equipment legally here, you have to pass the first of 3 exams (foundation, intermediate and advanced),...

Apple’s new 4th Generation iPhone leaked? Android with HTC Incredible or iPhone 4G?

I've always been waiting for the successor of the iPhone 3Gs, apparently June 28 may not be the day the phone be announced due to a leak of a confidential unit so as claim by Gizmodo, which they had the chance to get their hands on for a review of the dud unit. Apparently, the phone was found running...

4th (4G) Generation iPhone to be annouced on June 22nd 2010

And so as told by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). Soon after the news broke, we were informed that the next-generation iPhone would be announced on June 22nd (a Tuesday, naturally) and would be dubbed the iPhone HD (a name that has been tossed around before). That certainly makes sense given that Apple almost certainly has to up the...

Apple iPad annouced, not a workhorse, but hey it can run iPhone apps!

It interesting that such technology and capability already existed ages ago, but no one seemed to put it all together for the consumer. Apple seem to always get that right, this time they are doing it again with a new slate tablet computer called the iPad. At first glance, it looks like an over sized iPhone, which the distinctive bezel,...

Solving iPhone 3Gs apps “unknown error” or “file not found” in iTunes 9.0.2 64-bit

I had this problem with iTunes previously, but solved the problem by reverting the program, so I am posting this here in case anyone who experienced the problem on a same setup can get a solution here. After updating iTunes on my PC to the spanking new 9.0.2 64-bits to suit my current system platform, I kept getting numerous...

Got a new ASUS WL-600G all-in-one network gateway

Got a new ASUS WL-600Gg wireless gateway DSL router today at Sim Lim to replace my old 2wire 1800HG which went "kaput yesterday" after a good old 4-5 years I say. Looking around, I am surprised at how low the prices of networking equipment now. Back before 2000 I remembered paying a premium for home networking equipment. That was...

Nokia Repair, well that was quite decent. Confirmed failure after warranty?

Collected my phone yesterday at the Wheelock Nokia service center. The service was rather good on my personal opinion, besides the long string of complaints and comments the service center is notorious for. I mean, come to think about it, dealing with customers at the service is not an easy job, having to put up with downtime for the...

Emtec Movie Cube vs AC Ryan DVR and Carrefour staff service

After months of research and price hunting, I was considering a new Harddisk player and recorder at Carrefour yesterday, one by the name of AC Ryan, with time based recording. But apparently upon reaching there, they seem to have a better recorder in store now known as the Emtec Movie Cube which not only boosts everything the AC Ryan...

Grow up Singapore! We can’t use Segways on Singapore Streets?

There is always so much controversy with regards to the inflexible regulations notorious in Singapore- govern this govern that they say. This one in particular with respect to the rules against the use of Segways in commuting. No wonder it never took off, or even heard of to many in Singapore. However, with the ongoing encouragement of public transport use...

Dead ipod Song

Something funny about ipods and questions about their unreliability. Say if you "broke" your iPhone, "get a new one" said jobs. So that will very much go in line as the iPod as well as shown in this video. I think the thing which sets the stereotypical iPod and PC user is the difference in the buy and throw...

Ok folks, here are some official words from Nokia Singapore with regards to the Nokia N96. Quote from Nokia Singapore: Please be advised that Nokia N96 mobile phone has been scheduled to be launched at the end of the third quarter of 2008. However, at this stage we are unable to advice on the actual launch date for the phone. Please...

N82 real world tests

You won't totally experience the N82 after using it for a few days and putting it through the "real world" tasks. Overall my reactions are mixed, but I felt that Nokia could have made the N82 a better phone. The main thing which shines in this phone is the camera, throughout this blog posts are some photos taken with...
