Joined the dark side and got the Nespresso Pixie (Electric Red)! The recommended retail price (RRP) is S$398 but thanks to a friend who is working in Nestle, I managed to get it at staff price!

The machine is Made in Switzerland (NOT China) and I like how they have a handle together with the box for you to carry it easily! The box includes 16 capsules. You can shop for more capsules over at their online store, Club Nespresso, or using their Nespresso iPhone App. There are 3 prices for their capsules. Prices below are for each capsule:

3 months ago, PayPal Singapore did an very interesting video for me regarding my SwitchEasy CoverBuddy for iPad 2 purchase. It was a massive effort by the team and the costs involved must be huge as each blogger’s video is different and there are 20 bloggers! Kudos to you guys!

Just in case you miss it, here is the video again:

Bluelounge Extra Connectors

I got the Bluelounge Extra Connectors (Micro USB) for US$5.95 (~S$7.22) for my Bluelounge The Sanctuary as I needed an extra Micro USB port to charge both my HTC Destire and HTZ Mozart at the same time.

If you just ship the Extra Connectors to Singapore, it cost US$2.53 (~S$3.07) for USPS (First Class Mail International Parcels). Since I am already buying the Bluelounge MiniDock, I just need to top up US$1 more for the shipping cost.

Microsoft Windows 8 Developer Preview

The last time we saw a preview of Windows 8 was during Computex back on 2nd June 2011. Yesterday at the BUILD conference, Microsoft showcased Microsoft Windows 8 Developer Preview.

The new Metro UI look awesome, hopefully this time round, Microsoft will make the UI consistent throughout the whole Windows. Microsoft has learned from their mistake and the Metro UI is now built for touch rather than mouse from the group up. It is just wrong slapping a touch UI to Windows 7, it just does not work.

Bluelounge MiniDock

Ordered the Bluelounge MiniDock (UK variant) from bluelounge.com for US$19.95 (~S$24.20). It was my first purchase over the website as the MiniDock is not yet sold in Singapore.

The shipping cost is about US$4.15 (~S$5) via USPS (First Class Mail International Parcels). This shipping method is the cheapest but it is delivered via normal mail when it reaches Singapore as it does not come with a tracking number. Also my box is a little bit damage, but at just S$5 for shipping, I can’t really complain much. My item was shipped on 20th August 2011 and I received it on 8th September 2011 (about 20 days).

Got the Bluelounge SpaceStation from Design Museum Shop located at Red Dot Traffic for S$127.35. I have not seen the SpaceStation sold elsewhere yet, if I do come across, I will update this post accordingly.

This SpaceStation should complete my Bluelounge collection for the time being. I ordered Bluelounge MiniDock and Bluelounge Extra Connectors online and still waiting for it to arrive sometime in mid September. I have yet to order Bluelounge Kicks as I want to wait for my previous shipment to come first before deciding to order again.

I previewed the Nokia N9 during Nokia Connection 2011 back in June 2011. At that time the software is still in beta stages and there are still room for improvements.

I was invited to Nokia N9 Blogger Event back on Wednesday to preview the Nokia N9. The Nokia N9 will be launching in early October 2011 in Singapore. The recommended retail price is S$799 (16GB) and S$899 (64GB). All 3 operators in Singapore (Singtel, Starhub and M1) will be offering the Nokia N9.

I am travelling to the US this December for the first time and I was looking for the US version of HungryGoWhere, many people recommended Yelp, but unfortunately it is not available in Singapore App Store.

I tweeted about it and mentioned @yelp. They replied me 2 days later via Twitter asking me which country I am in, I told them Singapore and in a few hours time, they opened it for Singapore App Store! Kudos to the Yelp Mobile Team!
