Ordered the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter for S$38 on the day it was announced at WWDC 2012 and it was delivered to me the following day!

Looks like they already have ready stock in Singapore. I went to Funan’s Multimedia Integrated and could not find it, apparently they have not distributed it to the resellers yet. I really wish Apple would open a store here in Singapore, like what they did in Hong Kong.

Did you know that if you are a student, educator, academic or non-academic staff from Ministry of Education in Singapore, you can purchase original Microsoft and Adobe products from mine.com.sg at a discounted price. Software such as Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 and Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design and Web Premium.

My brother is currently studying in National University of Singapore (NUS) and he bought the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design and Web Premium for only S$139 (normal price is S$2,868).

Recoil Winders was the 7th Kickstarter project that I backed. I backed it this year on the 6th February 2012 and the project got funded on the 26th February 2012. They raised a total of US$141,465 out of the initial goal of just US$10,000. After 3 months in the works, I finally received it 2 days ago on Monday, 4th June 2012.

I pledged US$55 for 2 complete sets of Recoil Winders and 2 Racks (2 Small, 2 Medium and 2 Large Winders) and for international shipping it is an additional US$9. Paid a total of US$64 (S$82.31).

SingTel New Flexi/iFlexi Plans For 3G & 4G Customers

SingTel New Flexi/iFlexi Plans For 3G & 4G Customers

In short, this will affect new and re-contracting customers from 1st July 2012. SingTel decreases data bundle from 12GB to 2GB (2GB is for Flexi Lite, which most of us are on) and increases SMS quota from 550 to 800! Looks like we need to SMS more instead of Whatsapp.

I am pretty disappointed with this announcement actually. Instead of fixing the problem, they chose to cap everybody. Instead of fixing the overloaded base station, they chose to spend S$12 million to buy hungrygowhere.

Was invited to the launch of starcount at Pangaea Marina Bay Sands. I must say they got pretty strong backing, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), Interactive Digital Media Programme Office (IDMPO), Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Economic Development Board (EDB) and Marina Bay Sands (MBS) are all supporting them.

What is starcount?

Windows 8 Release Preview has been released!

This is our final pre-release, and includes Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, new Windows 8 apps for connecting to Hotmail, SkyDrive, and Messenger (and many more), and hundreds of new and updated apps in the Windows Store. Since our first preview release last September, millions of people now use the pre-release product on a daily basis and millions more have been taking it through its paces, totaling hundreds of millions of hours of testing. We genuinely appreciate the effort that so many have put into pre-release testing, and of course, we appreciate the feedback too. Direct feedback and feedback through usage contributed to hundreds of visible changes in the product and tens of thousands of under-the-hood changes.
