Looking Back 2016

· · · Blog

Looking Back 2016, I moved into my new house on 14th May 2016. That is probably the biggest change in my life so far.

I managed to make my house into a smart home with Fibaro, SmartThings and a couple of Amazon Echo. You can read about my journey here and here.

Only traveled three times this year, to Bangkok in February, Hong Kong in September and Munich in November.

Got a 256GB iPhone 7 Plus in Jet Black to replace my 128GB iPhone 6s Plus in Gold. Replaced my Nexus 6P with Huawei Mate 9 as well.

I always wanted a Sonos and I finally got it during Amazon’s Black Friday sales. I bought 3x Sonos PLAY:1. It is about S$100 cheaper for each PLAY:1 even if you factored in shipping cost.

What I Said In 2015

For 2016, I hope Mac mini will get a major refresh so I can buy it along with two Dell 27″ monitors.

The Mac mini didn’t get an upgrade this year. All the hardware attention is on the new MacBook Pro. I hope this will change in 2017. I really need a new desktop Mac and nope I am not going for Hackintosh.

For the Dell monitors, I am aiming for the Dell UltraSharp 27 Monitor – U2715H. Hopefully, by mid of next year, the prices would have dropped.

I managed to get 3x Dell UltraSharp 27 InfinityEdge Monitor (U2717D) for my new house at S$764 each.

For 2017
I am guessing 2017 will be the year of wireless mesh Wi-Fi system with Eero, Google Wi-Fi, Luma and Orbi already on the bandwagon. We will probably see more mainstream brands like Linksys, D-Link, TP-Link, Netgear and Asus on board. I am already using Eero (next blog post) for my house.

I really hope to get a Mac desktop computer in 2017 and I can’t wait for iPhone 8 (or whatever you call it).

I probably want to travel more, especially to Japan, since I have not been to Japan before.

I would like to wish all my readers, visitors, and supporters a very Happy New Year 2017! 2017 will be an awesome year for us!
