Chromebooks Now Available In Singapore

Chromebooks have arrived in Singapore and for some reasons, they are only on sale at Courts and not elsewhere like Challenger, Harvey Norman or Best Denki. I guess Courts got the exclusivity rights for the time being.

3 models of Chromebook are available, HP Pavilion Chromebook (S$449), Samsung Chromebook (S$449) and Acer C7 Chromebook (S$369).

Nook HD+ Tablet

During Mother’s Day week last week, Barnes & Noble dropped their price for their Nook HD+ Tablet from US$269 (S$335) to US$179 (S$222.80) for their 16GB model. Of course I bought it since it is a OK price for that specification and I always wanted to play with an Android tablet.

Nook HD+ doesn’t come with camera, GPS or 3G capability. It uses microSD card as a storage expansion. It uses its own proprietary 30-pin charging cable and since Nook is not available in Singapore,it is advisable to get a spare charging cable in case you misplaced yours.

I was one of the early backers for OCDock (Kickstarter). I backed the project last year on the 4th December 2012 and the project got funded on 22nd December 2012 after raising US$107,979 despite the initial goal was only US$49,000.

The project was delayed by a few months, it was suppose to be shipping in January 2013 but I only got my last week on the 10th May 2013.

Saw the WordPress 10th Anniversary T-Shirt post on WordPress.org and I told myself I have to get it!

It’s sale price is only US$10 (including free US Shipping) till 27th May 2013. For shipping to Singapore, I paid US$14.65. So in total I Paid US$10 (S$12.43) + US$14.65 (S$18.21) = US$24.65 (S$30.65)

Starbucks Stainless Steel Cold Cup (16 fl oz)

When I first saw the Starbucks Stainless Steel Cold Cup (S$36.90) on one of the photo in Starbucks Singapore Facebook Page two days ago, I told myself I have to get it.

Immediately after lunch, I went to the nearest 4 Starbucks stores located around my office but unfortunately these 4 stores ran out of stock. I was pretty disappointed, so I wrote on their Facebook page asking when it will be restock and whether are there any stores that have available stock.
