Every year on the 31st March is World Backup Day. World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups. This independent initiative aim to raise awareness about backups and data preservation.
For this year’s World Backup Day, I will be giving out a copy of Acronis True Image 2015 for PC and Mac (1 computer) with Unlimited Cloud Subscription for a year worth US$99.99 (S$140) to three lucky winners, thanks to Acronis.
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.
The Aukey 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub is a USB 3.0 hub that is made up of aluminum to match the design of your Mac. It measures 183mm x 66mm x 34mm and weighs 180g. Because it is USB 3.0, it supports data transfer rate of up to 5Gbps. It comes with a 12V/3A power adapter and a 1m USB 3.0 cable (Standard-A to Standard-A).
Do you know that Acronis is founded in Singapore in 2002 and they moved their HQ back to Singapore just last year?
Acronis was founded by Serguei Beloussov, Ilya Zubarev, and Max Tsyplyaev as a separate business unit within SWsoft and in 2003, Acronis was spun off as a separate company. Just a FYI, SWsoft is the parent company of Parallels, Inc (source: Wikipedia).
The second product that I ordered from Aukey is the Aukey 48W 9.6A 4-Port Car Charger. It is retailing for US$16.99 (S$23) on Amazon. I have not seen a similar charger like this from Anker before.
This is the most powerful car charger that I have seen in the market because it is capable of a 9.6A combined output and since there it is a 4-port charger, each port can output a maximum of 2.4A simultaneously.
The Sound Blaster Jam is a lightweight (83g) Bluetooth 4.1 wireless headset that gives you wireless audio for your music, movies and games from your smartphone. It has built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) wireless connectivity for easy one-touch pairing with Android or Windows Phone devices.
I think the Belkin Tablet Charger has been renamed to Belkin Universal Home Charger since I could not find the Tablet Charger being listed on their website and the Universal Home Charger looks exactly the same (besides the color) as the Tablet Charger.
