Both of my iPads are starting to show it’s age because it lags in everything it does. So it is time for an upgrade! I wanted to get the iPad Mini Retina but in the end I chose the iPad Air because of the bigger screen (easier for Li Xiang to do her sketching).

During Mother’s Day week last week, Barnes & Noble dropped their price for their Nook HD+ Tablet from US$269 (S$335) to US$179 (S$222.80) for their 16GB model. Of course I bought it since it is a OK price for that specification and I always wanted to play with an Android tablet.
Nook HD+ doesn’t come with camera, GPS or 3G capability. It uses microSD card as a storage expansion. It uses its own proprietary 30-pin charging cable and since Nook is not available in Singapore,it is advisable to get a spare charging cable in case you misplaced yours.

The LunaTik Touch Pen was the 6th project I backed on Kickstarter. Backed the project last year on 14th December 2011, it became officially funded this year on the 10th February 2012 after raising US$309,183 (the goal was only US$75,000).
After some delays, I finally received the product last week on the 10th July 2012. Paid US$30 for it and an extra US$20 for the shipping to Singapore which adds up to US$50 (S$63.20) in total.
