kaypo.me is an interesting service created by my fellow NUS SoC graduate, Kent Nguyen. It allows you to update your Facebook status via SMS. Not many people are on smart phones with data plan but almost everyone has a mobile plan that comes with at least 300 free SMSes per month. Even feature phones will work with this service as well.
Currently receiving or replying status’ comments via SMS is in beta, hopefully it will be available for the public soon.
Bought Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds from GameScore at Funan. It was released in the US on the 15th February 2011 but the Japan/Asia version is out only today. Europe will be tomorrow, 18th February 2011. I got it for S$52.20 after member’s discount (Thanks Benjamin)!

Singapore, 16 February 2011 – Facebook today announced the launch of Facebook Places in Singapore. Already available in some countries, Facebook Places allows you to “check-in” and share with your friends where you are and who you’re with, find friends who are nearby and discover new places your friends like – all in real time.
Crumpler release a new pouch called “The Tuft” 2 days ago and this time, the pouch came with a Crumpler’s carbine hook. According to Crumpler at Raffles City Facebook Page, it is available in 3 sizes and in 3 colors (Red, Black & Beige).
However, when I went there on the day they announce it, there are only 2 sizes left, the medium and large. The medium size (S$35) is left with beige, and the large size (S$40) is left with black and red. If you are using DBS Live Fresh Credit Card or EpiCenter Member Card, there is an additional 10% discount.
TikTok + LunaTik is a multi-touch watch kits meant for Apple iPod Touch Nano (6th Generation). It is the most successful KickStarter project, raising a total of US$941,718. At first I was skeptical about it, but eventually as the deadline for the project grew closer, Li Xiang decided to just get it for me (thanks dear)!
She was the backer for LunaTik (US$50) alongside with the other 5,012 backers.
