Flipper Zero is a portable multi-tool for “hackers” who likes to play around with radio protocols and access control systems. It started as a Kickstarter project on 30th July 2020. It was then successfully funded on 29th August 2020 after raising a total of US$4,882,784 from 37,987 backers, which blew past their initial goal of only US$60,000.
I was their early bird, so I paid US$119 (S$166) without shipping as Flipper could not determine the shipping cost then. When they managed to get their logistics sorted out in September 2021, I paid US$13.37 (S$19) for shipping to Singapore.
Signs you are getting older is when you need to get a blood pressure monitor after your annual health checkup. I went for my annual health checkup on 8th July 2022, and the doctor mentioned that my blood pressure was slightly above the normal range.
Based on HealthHub.sg, I fall under the High-Normal BP range and doctor ask me to watch my salt intake.
I have various HDMI cables from multiple gadgets, and I don’t even know what HDMI version they support. So I decided to standardize and future-proof all my HDMI cables at home to make them more uniform.
I opted for HDMI 2.1 because it supports all the latest standards, 8K@60 resolution, 48 Gbps bandwidth, HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), etc.
