Personally, I feel that both the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge have awesome build quality and the screen is superb. As usual, the only thing I don’t like about them is the amount of bloatware apps inside the phone.

The two lucky winners will be able to choose their own color for their Fitbit Flex. You will be getting the actual Fitbit Flex tracker with your preferred Fitbit Flex color wristband accessory and not just the wristband accessory.
Announced last week Tuesday on 30th September 2014, the next version of Microsoft’s Windows will be called Windows 10 and not Windows 9.
As shown in the screenshot below, there is a rumour going on in Reddit mentioning that lots of third party products are checking whether the Windows version starts with “Windows 9” which means it will match Windows 95 or Windows 98.
In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I travel to Singapore to interview Lester “GaMerZ” Chan. Chan has 23 different plugins in the plugin directory, amassing an incredible total download count of 12,241,325! This accounts for approximately 1.6% of all plugin downloads from the directory.

I joined Tech in Asia as The Tech Guy on 1st September 2014. It has been a busy September for us. There are two developers (Li Soon and I) in Tech in Asia and we have another team in Vietnam that is doing Techlist.
Our priority for September is basically to scale Tech in Asia.
Thanks to SingTel for giving me 2 years free subscription to try out their Fibre Internet so that I can compare it with my existing 300Mbps StarHub MaxInfinity Fibre Internet.
They gave me the 300Mbps Fibre Home Bundle which cost S$59.90. It includes the free Aztech FG7003GRV(AC) – Dual Band Wireless-AC Gigabit VOIP Residential Gateway and Home Digital Line with free unlimited local calls.
Asked my mom to get me the Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter from iStudio in Changi Airport because she is travelling to Hong Kong with my dad. The retail price is S$108 but if you get it from the Airport, you don’t have to pay tax for it. So it is cheaper by about 7%, so it cost about S$100.93.
The Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is meant for MacBook Pro Retina 13″. As long as your MacBook uses 60W or less, you can use this particular adapter. Case in point, you can use this power adapter with MacBook Air 11″ or MacBook Air 13″.
Before the official launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there are already quite a few cases out there in the market for the phones. I think some manufacturers bet on the leak schematics rather than waiting for Apple’s official schematics.
For iPhone 6 Plus, I found three clear cases in the market from Spigen and one from Tunewear. For Tunewear, there is only the Tunewear eggshell for iPhone 6 Plus (S$32).
