About 2½ years had passed since I gotten my StarCraft 2 – Wings Of Liberty – Collector’s Edition.

StarCraft 2 – Heart Of The Swarm was officially launched on the 12th March 2013. As I am a collector, I placed my order 5 months ago (on the 15th November 2012) for the StarCraft 2 – Heart Of The Swarm – Collector’s Edition from Amazon.com.

Bought the Timbuk2 Custom Laptop Messenger Bag from timbuk2.com when they are having a 20% off custom bags from 5th to 8th March 2013. I placed order on the 6th March 2013, my bag got shipped on the 12th March 2013 and I received it on the 18th March 2013.

I got the Timbuk2 Command Messenger Bag (oxford nylon black in medium size) when I was in San Francisco back in December 2011. It was retailing for US$130 which after 8.75% California tax comes up to US$141.375 (S$176).

This bag is Transportation Security Administration (TSA) friendly in the US because the laptop compartment can be unzipped separately to flatten the bag for it to pass through the X-ray. In this way you do not need to take your laptop out from the bag. I have not tested this in Singapore Changi Airport yet, but my guess is that you still have to take the laptop out from your bag.

Received the Timbuk2 Freestyle Messenger Bag for iPad from my brother as my birthday present last year. I think at that time it is retailing for US$89 (S$111), but it is on offer now, timbuk2.com is selling for US$54 (S$67.40).

Despite it is a bag for the iPad, it is able to fit in a 13″ MacBook Air at the main compartment (not the padded iPad compartment). I am guessing a 11″ MacBook Air should be able to fit in the padded iPad compartment.

Hossan Leong took over SingTel’s Twitter page yesterday as part of a campaign to promote SingTel’s 4G mobile service. The hashtag #Need4GSpeed is used and if you tweet with that hashtag, Hossan and his team of actors will respond to selected tweets on-the-spot with entertaining short skits depicting the mentioned scenarios.

I tweeted “#Need4GSpeed to show off my speedtest results!” and this is the video I got back!

Google Reader was created in early 2005 by Google engineer Chris Wetherell and launched on 7th October 2005 through Google Labs.

I can’t remember when I first started using Google Reader, but my guess it would be around in 2006. Ever since then, I have been using Google Reader on a daily basis (even weekends and when I am on holiday).
