Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable

· · · Cable

I bought a few cheap China imitation USB to Lighting cable from DealExtreme and the quality is really horrible especially when it comes to fitting the Lightning end to your iPhone. After that, I told myself I will never get any cheap Lightning cable anymore.

The Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable is the shortest USB to Lightning cable that I can find that is of good quality. Apparently, it seems to be an Apple exclusive and I can only get it from the Apple Online Store in Singapore. I can’t even find the cable being listed on the official Belkin Singapore website.

The cable is retailing for SGD$24 and is available in four colours: Pink, Green, Blue and Orange.

The shortest cable offered by Apple is 50cm whereas for this cable it is only 6 inch or 15cm in length. This length is just nice for portability especially if you are constantly on the move and charging your iPhone using a power bank.

You could also use this cable with the Griffin PowerDock 5!

Apple MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter

Recently, my company bought for me an Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13″ (Late 2013) and it uses MagSafe 2 instead of MagSafe 1 power adapter because all MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina after June 2012 ships with MagSafe 2 power adapter.

I have an extra Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter at home and I needed a converter for it.

Luckily there is an official converter for it, the Apple MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter, and it cost only SGD$13!

My current work laptop is a Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011). Despite getting it back in March 2012, the laptop itself is a 3-year old model. My company, migme, has a policy to change laptop every 3 years and this time round, they bought for me a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina (Late 2013).

The processor is a 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz) with 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM and 256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage. This configuration cost SGD$2,368.

Martian Notifier’s Smart Notifications App
Martian Notifier’s Smart Notifications App allows three unique levels of notification support: it first lets you filter the notification types you want sent to the watch, so you receive only those that are most important to you. It secondly allows customized vibration patterns for each type of alert, letting you know if you’ve just received, for example, an email, text message or news alert without even looking at your watch, let alone your phone. Finally, you can recall the most recent message with just a tap of the watch face, or scroll through multiple past notifications for a quick review.

The Martian Notifier features an integrated OLED readout that delivers real-time alerts and notifications from the convenience of your wrist including Caller ID, Calendar, Weather, texts, email (POP or IMAP), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, favorite games, bank alerts, fitness stats, news headlines, and all other alerts your smartphone allows.

In addition, Martian Notifier offers several convenience-oriented features: a touch of a Notifier button activates your smartphone’s speakerphone, enabling hundreds of voice commands to control music, check a sports score, get directions, search the web, create a reminder or appointment, and more. You can also decline an incoming call, set silent vibrating alarms that only you will sense, get a once-an-hour tickler to remind you to take a break, turn on an LED light to see in a dark room, control your phone’s camera shutter, and more.
