WhatsApp Web Now Available For iOS Users

Earlier this year, WhatsApp released a web client called WhatsApp Web for Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry. iOS was left out due to Apple platform limitations.

I think WhatsApp worked around the limitations or the limitations have been removed by Apple because WhatsApp Web is now available for iOS users.

Apple Store iOS App Now Available in Singapore

After today’s update to Apple Store iOS App, I just realised the app is now available for all Singapore App Store users! Previously, I tried to download it and it just say it is not available in my region yet.

With WWDC 2015 taking place from 8th June 2015 till 12th June 2015, Tim Cook will probably announce the second wave of countries for the Apple Watch and I am pretty sure Singapore will be in. On a side note, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) has listed Apple Watch in its database.

Acronis True Image Unlimited Review

About Acronis
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).

Microsoft Announces Windows 10

Announced last week Tuesday on 30th September 2014, the next version of Microsoft’s Windows will be called Windows 10 and not Windows 9.

As shown in the screenshot below, there is a rumour going on in Reddit mentioning that lots of third party products are checking whether the Windows version starts with “Windows 9” which means it will match Windows 95 or Windows 98.
