Teach a Technophobe – Challenge #1

My first challenge of the Teach a Technophobe has arrived on Friday. I choose my mom (Jas Ngan) for the challenge as she requires email access on the go pretty often as she is a businesswoman. I am using the very excellent free Symbian application called Best Screen Snap to capture a screenshot on the E75 and I tied the shortcut key to the camera shutter button.

Logitech 2.4 GHz Cordless Presenter

Bought my Logitech 2.4 GHz Cordless Presenter at PK Computer at VivoCity for S$132. I have no idea why presenters are so expensive. Even those non-branded one cost about S$80. But I must say a presenter is a good investment, I can use it for presentations in my school as well, save me the hassle from clicking the mouse to change slide. I love the Logitech Presenter because it has a built-in countdown timer which many presenters lacks!

Casio Scientific Calculator FX-992S

My first scientific calculator was the Casio FX-992S which I bought it in Secondary 2 in 1998 when I was 14 years old. It lasted me through my secondary education, polytechnic education as well as my 2 years and 2 months in national service. It finally broke down during my 2nd year in university in 2007 just few hours before my exams! The calculator lasted me for 9 years! After it broke down, I borrowed my brother scientific calculator, he is also using the Casio FX-992S and he got it during his secondary school days. I predict it will have another 3 more years lifespan as he is going to national service soon if his calculator followed the timeline of my calculator.

I went to NUS Co-Op to see if there is any calculator to buy, to my surprise the FX-992S still exists! However there is another modal also from Casio called the “Natural Textbook Display” FX-991ES. I was contemplating between the both, the price difference is about S$3. End up I went for the good old trusted FX-992S for S$29.70.

Showcase Nokia 2009

I was invited to Showcase Nokia 2009 where Nokia launches the Nokia E55, Nokia E75, Nokia N86 8MP, Nokia 6710 Navigator and the Nokia 6720 Classic at ZIRCA, Clark Quay, Singapore.

Nokia E75
The E75 is the exact clone of E51 just that it includes a slide out full QWERTY keypad. Thickness wise, it is not much thicker and it sports a 3.2MP camera. It is mean to be a scaled down version of E71. But personally, I will choose E71 over this anytime!

Nokia Remix 2008 Singapore Party

This is the 2nd and final part to the Nokia Remix 2008 event. The party starts at 7pm and is held at Red Dot Design Museum. I was there with Li Xiang. We have a blogger meeting at Pacific Coffee also at 7pm where we get to play with the Nokia XpressMusic 5800 for quite a long time. I took a video of the Internet surfing experience and the gaming experience using accelerometer and will be uploading to YouTube.

About 8pm, we proceed on for the buffet dinner and followed by the Music Performance. By the way, the food catered by Nokia is as usual very good. Thumbs up for that.

Nokia Remix 2008 Singapore

Nokia Remix 2008 Singapore was held today at 9am at Odeon Towers, Supper Club. Supper Club is a beautiful place the huge sofa chairs are so comfortable that I almost fell asleep. I knew pretty much everything that Nokia is going to announce thanks to the pre-media briefing yesterday.

I have finally got the chance to take a video of the user interface of the XpressMusic 5800 and I have uploaded it to YouTube. Nothing is new here, for more information, you can check out the post below this or check the specifications at

Nokia Connection 2008

I was invited to Nokia Connection 2008 which is an annual event. It is normally held just before Communicasia. This year it was held on the 16th and 17th June 2008. The first day was held at the Singapore Recreation Club while the second day was held at Mandarin Oriental. This year Nokia Connection saw the launch of two new products, the Nokia E66 and the Nokia E71 and the introduction of Share on Ovi.
Day 1
The event for the first day started at 7pm at the Singapore Recreation Club (SRC) which is located at B Connaught Drive, Singapore 179682 (The Padang). Nokia rented the space from SRC and catered the food from Mandarin Oriental. I am so afraid they are going to use SRC’s food which I have no idea whether it is nice or not. Nokia has not break the thought “Nokia Events Means Good Food” in me yet, and hopefully it will never happen.

The first event for the day was a performance of drums.

Nokia Sharing Experience

I was invited to the event, Nokia Sharing Experience held yesterday at MILK Studio located at 11C Mount Sophia, #02-16. In the RSVP image that was sent to my email, it only states that Nokia is introducing their latest devices as well as Share on Ovi. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the words “latest devices” is N78 and N96.

The place was a little difficult to find if you have not been to Mount Sophia before (like me). I need to climb up a long flight of stairs before reaching Mount Sophia. Being the usual me, I was there early. My name was always in the early bird draw for almost every Nokia event, but unfortunately I always didn’t win!
