Apple HDMI to HDMI Cable

· · · Apple, Cable

Got the Apple HDMI to HDMI Cable for my brother at Challenger’s VivoCity for SGD$28.

It is 1.8m in length and it is thinner than all the HDMI cables I saw/I have!

Protag

Protag (SGD$59) (official site) is a loss prevention device that is engineered in Singapore. It allows you to keep watch of your belongings at all times.

You have to pair your Protag with an Android phone (no iOS support yet) and place your Protag in your belongings (like in your bag or wallet).

When the Protag in your belongings detects that you are almost out of range, your phone alarm will go off. This is extremely useful when you are travelling and may help to prevent pickpocketing.

If you have not figured it out yet, it works both ways. When your phone is stolen and out of range with the Protag, it rings as well. The default distance is about 8m in open air and 4m in belongings but you can set it.

The audio level of the alarm depends on your phone volume.

There are a few other features such as:

  • Proximity Alert: Your phone will alert you when it detects your belongings is nearby after you have lost connection with it
  • SIM Card Security: When an unauthorised SIM card is inserted into your lost phone, it will sent the number to your secondary phone

My only wish for this device is for iOS support and make it even smaller!

  • Size: 85mm X 57mm X 3mm (credit card size)

SoundTech No. 77 Wireless Doorbell

· · · Hardware

My current doorbell at home has lasted me for 28 years (since 1985) and hence I got a new SoundTech No. 77 Wireless Doorbell from Funan’s Challenger for SGD$28.60 (member’s price: SGD$25.74).

28 years later, it seems technology also changes doorbell. There are so many types right now: wireless, wired, AC powered, battery powered, mp3 (using SD card) and 20 built-in tones.

I chose the wireless 3xAA battery powered doordell that comes with 20 built-in tones.

I love the portability of the wireless battery powered because you can place the receiver anywhere in the house as compared to the AC wireless powered one which depends on an electrical outlet.

I recommend placing the receiver in the middle of your house so that the sound can be heard somewhat evenly from all corners in your house. Since the receiver is small, you do not need to mount it on a wall, you can just place it on a table or behind some isolated corners that you will never notice.

The sound is loud at maximum level so I have to adjust it one level lower so that it is not deafening to the ears!
