The Belkin Audio Splitter is exclusive to Apple Stores got it for me when she was there. It is retailing for HK$148 (S$24).

It is a very simple no frills 3.5 mm (1/8 in.) audio jack splitter and definitely way overpriced. If you are using headphones/earphones with a microphone, the microphone part of it will not work because the splitter doesn’t transmit it to the phone.

Twelve South PlugBug World was announced beginning this year and I have no idea why is it not selling in Singapore yet, not even the Apple Online Store in Singapore.

When Li Xiang went to Hong Kong last week, she bought it for me from the Apple Store in IFC Mall, Hong Kong. It is retailing for HK$348 (S$60). Li Xiang also mentioned that the Twelve South PlugBug World is not displayed on the shelves and you might need to request the store assistant to get it from their storeroom.
