Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter Review

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter which retails for S$110 in Singapore can be mistaken for Microsoft’s version of Google Chromecast. In fact, both of them are quite different. Despite their differences, I don’t think their prices should vary that much. So I am not too sure why Microsoft would price the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter at US$59.95 when the Google Chromecast is only retailing for US$35.

Microsoft Wireless Display will work with Windows devices and Android devices but not iOS devices, whereas Google Chromecast will work with Android devices and iOS devices but not Windows devices.

Watching Netflix In Singapore With Unblock-Us SmartDNS

I did a post before on Watching Netflix In Singapore With UnoTelly SmartDNS and today, I will be featuring an alternative to UnoTelly which is Unblock-Us.

Unblock-Us was started in 2010 in Toronto, Canada. They are the first company in the world to offer a DNS-based solution (SmartDNS) to give people access to content not available in their location. They strongly believe in anonymity and privacy and hence they moved their operations to Barbados in response to the proposed Canadian legislation which would have required them to keep logs on their customer activities for 6 months.

YotaPhone 2 Review

Many people come to know YotaPhone 2 as the phone with two screens. It is the world’s third phone with two screens as far as I know. The first is YotaPhone 1 which didn’t make it to Singapore and the second is NEC Medias W N-05e which is also not available in Singapore.

The YotaPhone 2 is retailing in Singapore for S$1,048 and you can buy it online via YotaPhone.com or Expansys. Note that the price S$979 on these two websites are before the 7% GST.

Tiger Beer Limited Edition 1965 Vintage Can & Bottle

Tiger Beer’s new campaign, the “Unofficial Official History of Singapore” is inspired by the launch of Tiger Beer’s first can in 1965, the same year that Singapore gained independence.

The campaign aims to inspire Singaporeans to stop and take a look at ourselves with a fresh perspective, and especially at some of Singapore’s most iconic traits and social peculiarities – things that makes us Singaporean.

Krusell Malmö Wallet+Cover 2-in-1 For iPhone 6 Plus

Krusell
In case you are not familiar with the brand Krusell, Krusell is a manufacturer of smartphone and tablet accessories. They are a Swedish company and have been around since 1991. I remember seeing Krusell cases being sold at Singtel shops when my Dad got his first mobile phone back in the 90s.

When the smartphone era came, I didn’t see much of Krusell cases around. But I guess now they are back.
