Apple Magic Trackpad

Bought the Magic Trackpad at iStudio located at Changi Airport Terminal 3 on Friday before I left for Jakarta, Indonesia. On the same day, Apple Singapore is having a Chinese New Year Sale. As there are no 7% tax at the airport, it amounts to about the same price as the CNY sale. Got it for S$91.59. In fact, if you are getting more expensive items like MacBook Pro or Air, it is even cheaper at the airport than during the CNY sale.

Verizon’s iPhone 4 Summary

Verizon Wireless announced last night (12am SGT) that they will be selling the iPhone 4 as well in the US. The difference from AT&T and perhaps the rest of the world iPhone 4 is that it will be a CDMA version as opposed to a GSM version.

In terms of physical design, it is more or less the same with only three slight differences with the metal band surrounding the iPhone 4. See top, left and right view comparison.

Apple One-Day Chinese New Year Sale

Apple will be holding a one-day Chinese New Year Sale, This Friday, 14th January 2010.

If I am not mistaken, they held it once every year, instead of Black Friday in the US, we have a Red Chinese New Year in Singapore. I did not get anything from the 2010 sale. For the 2009 sale, I got the Belkin Auto Charger For iPod And iPhone.

Mac App Store

As you probably heard by now, the Mac App Store is live. It is bundled together with OS X 10.6.6 update. US$4.99 is the new US$0.99 in the Mac App Store. I have not gotten any paid app from there yet as I bought all the software directly from the software company itself and hence the Mac App Store is pretty useless for me in terms of paid app. I only wish you can transfer license for those Mac software that you have bought to the Mac App Store so that it will handle the updating for you. But right now that is not possible. The only way is you have to buy it again which is stupid. Lets see what happen to the Mac App Store eventually.

Konnext SynCharger

With gadgets comes the amount of messy wires and power sockets needed if you want to charge them simultaneously.

Been eying on a charging station in particular the Bluelounge’s Refresh for a few days, it is very hard to find in Singapore. I went to all the Apple stores in Orchard and VivoCity and only EpiCentre at Ion Orchard carries it, but there is only 1 and only set left which is pink (selling for S$138)! The sales personnel told me that the supplier ran out of Black and White stock.

Apple MacBook Air 11 Inch (Late 2010)

My boss got the Apple MacBook Air 11.6″ from the US for one of our business partner . It is the 11.6″ with 64GB of SSD. Apple Singapore is selling it for S$1,488 while the US is selling for US$999.

As the MacBook Air does not belong to me, I did not power it on, only compared the size and weight of it to my iPad, Macbook Pro and my Asus EEE 1000HE.

Apple iPod Nano 16GB (6th Generation)

Order my iPod Nano (6th Generation) on the 30th September 2010 and I received it today. Actually DHL attempted to deliver to my house yesterday but I was not around. This make me realize that they do deliver on weekend. I always thought they are on a 5 days week.

I chose the Graphite color because i think it will blend well with my black Crumpler bag (too bad they do not have black). Picked the 16GB instead of the 8GB because it is only S$50 (S$278 vs S$228) difference and my music collection is about there.
