Bought the Apple TV (2nd Generation) from San Francisco’s Apple Store for US$99 (after tax is US$107.67 = S$136.96).

I wish they sold it in Singapore but because there is no iTunes Movies/TV Shows rental service in Singapore, I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Nevertheless, it is still not a bad media player for that price. Not forgetting that the Apple TV is powered by Apple A4 chip.

Sony Xperia S

Announced at CES 2012, Sony Xperia S (the link is still pointing to SonyEricsson.com) is Sony’s first smartphone after she broke up with Ericsson.

The specs for Sony Xperia S is pretty impressive (1.5GHz Dual-Core + 1GB RAM) and it does supports NFC as well. The only complaint I have is it should be launching with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) instead of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). It will be available in 2 colors, black or white.

Nokia Lumia 900 was announced at CES 2012 but unfortunately at this point of time, it is only available exclusively for AT&T at launch time. I am pretty sure it will be in other countries as well. For Singapore, maybe SingTel will bring them in with their LTE service?

Now, if only Nokia included in NFC to the Lumia 900 and it would be perfect!

Bought the Twelve South PlugBug Charger at the Apple Store at Fashion Show Mall, Las Vegas for US$34.95 and after tax, it costs US$37.78 (S$49.14).

The PlugBug charger acts as an US travel adapter for your MacBook Pro/Air MacSafe Power Adapter and on top of that it gives you an additional USB port that allows you to charge your iPhone or iPad. I find it super useful for hotels that has limited power sockets. If you prefer not to attached it to your MacSafe Power Adapter, no worries as it can be used as a standalone USB charger.
