Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand was my 3rd project backed on Kickstarter and I think so far this is the only project that I am pretty disappointed with. The build and quality of it is just horrible.

For the unaware, Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand as the name suggest is a coil-like stand which you can twist and turn to your liking and it will hold up your mobile devices using a suction cup (Infinite Loop Smartphone Stand). The Infinite Loop Tablet Stand on the other hand allows you to rest your tablet on it’s pre-molded u-shaped base (instead of suction cup).

Cocoon Grid-It – 7.25 x 9.25

When I first got my Cocoon Grid-It last July, it was from Amazon. That was before ESA Distribution Pte Ltd brought it to Singapore. Now you can find it in Singapore pretty easily. I saw it selling at Kinokuniya, NBC Stationary, Takashimaya (level 3), Cumulus, etc.

This time round, I got the Cocoon Grid-It – 7.25 x 9.25 from Takashimaya for S$19.95. I compared the price in Singapore and it is about the same as Amazon when you factor in the shipping cost. For the Cocoon Grid-It – 7.25 x 9.25, Amazon is selling it for US$14.29 and the shipping to Singapore alone cost more than the item (US$14.86).

I was sent the Chef Sleeve (for iPad) for review all the way from the US. The Chef Sleeve is essentially a transparent plastic bag that you can place your iPad in when you are using it in the kitchen when cooking or baking.

This ensure that your iPad will not be dirtied by the grease on your finger or flour on the table when you need to use it in the kitchen (for checking recipes online or even watching YouTube for cooking/baking tutorial).

Brought Crumpler’s The Fug (Black) which is a very slim neoprene sleeve for my 13″ MacBook Air from Paragon‘s Crumpler store, it cost S$55, but if you are a CitiBank credit card holder, you enjoy a 10% discount. I ended up paying S$49.50 for it.

I was contemplating between this and the SwitchEasy’s Thins, but ended up I went for this instead because:

Ordered the Black Suite Fabrix Case for my Google Nexus from Fabrix Cases. It is a custom size since they do not have it readily available and hence I paid US$26.90 for it and an additional US$3 registered mail shipping within Singapore.

I was very impressed by how well it fits my naked iPhone 4S when I ordered the Fabrix Fifth October iPhone Case and hence I decided to get one as well for my Google Nexus.

Bought my first Timbuk2 bag or rather pouch in Singapore at Orchard Cineleisure and it is the Timbuk2 Shagg Bag 2012. It cost S$35. It it an accessory pouch that can be attached to the straps of your Timbuk2 bag.

In my case, I am attaching it to my Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011. You can store iPhone, earphone, keys or even coins in that pouch which can be access easily since it is in front.

I got my Timbuk2 bags when I was in San Francisco last December. One of my readers wrote in and asked a couple of questions regarding the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011. So I thought instead of replying him via email, I might as well share it with other readers whom might find it useful as well.

I bought the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011 (420d nylon gunmetal/blue/black) for US$99 which after 8.75% California after tax comes up to US$107.66 (S$134.18).
