Ozaki O!tool Combo Cable – Charge & Sync For Lighting & Micro-USB Devices

The Ozaki O!tool Combo Cable is a charge and sync cable for Lighting & micro-USB Devices similar to the Innergie Magic Cable Duo with Lightning.

It retails for SGD$39 and is one meter in length. It weighs 35g and you can choose from two colours (black or white).

The price is more reasonable as compared to the Innergie Magic Cable Duo with Lightning. But it faces the same problem as the Innergie Magic Cable Duo with Lightning which is the base of the Lightning head is too wide.

If you are using cases like the Apple iPhone 5s Case, or the Power Support Air Jacket, it will not fit because those cases cover your iPhone precisely.

However, if you are using the Ozaki O!coat 0.3+Pocket Case, it will fit fine because the case doesn’t cover much of the bottom.

Moshi iVisor Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5s

Moshi iVisor Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5s retailing for SGD$48.90 is a good alternative to the Spigen SGP GLAS.tR Nano Slim Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5c/5s and is slightly cheaper. It weighs only 10g and is bubble-proof, shock-proof and scratch-resistant.

I tried pasting it on my iPhone 5 and despite it was my first time applying screen protector (I usually get the mobile phone shops to do it for me), I managed to do it on the first try!

Similar to the Spigen SGP GLAS.tR, the Moshi iVisor Glass is as thin and has round edges to fit your phone perfectly.

The only thing that Moshi did differently is the top and bottom portion of the glass screen protector is coloured. Because they are coloured, you have to get the colour specific to your iPhone 5/5c/5s and hence the Moshi iVisor Glass is available in White, Black, Pink, Blue, Yellow and Green.

I wonder what is the reason that leads them want to colour the top and bottom portion of the glass screen protector. Because it doesn’t really make any sense to me.

Features

  • Atomically-strengthened glass screen protector with exceptional clarity.
  • Up to 40% thinner than generic glass screen protectors.
  • 100% bubble-proof, shock-proof and scratch-resistant.
  • Oleophobic surface-coating provides fingerprint resistance.
  • Perfectly rounded edges and cutouts for a comfortable grip and feel.

Where To Buy
You can get the Moshi iVisor Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5s from physical stores such as Challenger, EpiCentre or Infinite. Alternatively you can get it online from Ban Leong’s eStore (coming soon).

Thermodo – Thermometer for Mobile Devices

· · · Gadget

Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer that measures the temperature right where you are on your iPhone, iPad and Android devices. I don’t think Windows Phone support will be there since the stretch goal of USD$400,00 (in order for Thermodo to come out with a Windows Phone app) was never met. You can download the Thermodo app on Apple App Store or Google Play.

I backed Thermodo on Kickstarter on the 7th March 2013 and it was funded successfully on 10th April 2013 after raising USD$336,018 out of their initial goal of USD$35,000.

The estimated delivery date is in August 2013 but it was delayed for about 5 months. It was shipped to me on 30th January 2014 and I received it on 10th February 2014.

I am one of the early birds, so I paid USD$19 + USD$10 (Shipping) and that amounts to USD$29 (SGD$37).

It works as advertised but I am not too sure about the accuracy since I don’t have a room thermometer to compare the temperature with. However, their update did mention users comparing it with a room thermometer and it is spot-on accurate.

You might get warmer readings as well since your device do produce heat and hence in the settings, Thermodo do allow you to compensate for your device heat as shown in the iOS screenshots further below.

Lego Custom Minifigures by minifiglabs.com

· · · Endorsement, Toy

Received my custom Lego Minifigures (Minifig) from Minifiglabs.com. Minifiglabs.com is a service started by a Singaporean company, Fish & Toast. It allows you to create your very own printed personalised Lego Minifigures.

I was given the Cool Denim Couple Set which consists of two custom Minifig (printed with Lay Hiang and my name) and another custom Minifig with my logo printed on it.

The Cool Denim Couple Set retails for SGD$63.80 while the custom Minifig starts from SGD$7.10 and my particular custom Minifig combination costs SGD$17.40 (excluding the case which cost SGD$7.10).

Shipping is separate and done via SingPost, charges and timing are as follows:

  • Registered Domestic (Singapore) [3 - 4 days]: from SGD$2.24
  • Express Courier Domestic (Singapore) [2 days]: from SGD$6
  • Registered International Airmail [2 - 5 weeks]: from SGD$3.30

Minifiglabs.com uses brand new official Lego parts and it is directly printed on the Minifigs with a special industrial printer (it is not a decal). Printing takes place in a 4-step process. A layer of primer is first printed to ensure that ink stays on, followed by a base layer of white ink. Next, the colours that you have designed will be printed and lastly a protective clear coat is applied for durability.

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 – 7″ Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

· · · Tablet

Last month, Panasonic introduces the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1, a 7″ rugged Windows 8.1 Pro Tablet running on Intel Core i5 vPro processor. It is drop/shock resistant of height up to 150cm and has a rating of IP65 for water and dust resistant thanks to its fanless design.

The base model will start from SGD$2,600 in March 2014 and it can be customised to fit a range of accessories such as mini serial port, ethernet port, 2D barcode reader, GPS and NFC through its configuration port.

The FZ-M1 is priced so high because it is not meant for the average consumers like you and me. It is meant more for SME and enterprises. Another reason is that the FZ-M1 is Made in Japan.

There are still quite a lot of companies still using a rugged mobile phone running on Windows Mobile 6.5 like the Motorola MC75A for their business purposes. The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 could be a successor to that.
