The Apple iPhone Micro USB Adapter is currently only being sold in the UK Apple Stores (both online and retail) for £8.00 (S$16.23).

I bought it from the Apple Store at Regent Street when I was there in London for Nokia World 2011. I think it is a good gift to give to people who are Apple fans because you can’t get it anywhere else in the world!

Bought the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit before my flight to London in iStudio located in Changi Airport Terminal 3 for S$54.21. Since I was departing to London and have a valid boarding pass, I do not need to pay the 7% GST/tax, if not the normal price is S$58.

The Kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple MagSafe Power Adapters (for MacBook and MacBook Pro), Portable Power Adapters (for iBook and PowerBook), and AirPort Express.

Apple announces iPhone 4S at last night’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event. The form factor is exactly the same as iPhone 4, the only minor difference is the antenna placement is different from the GSM models of iPhone 4. In terms of weight, iPhone 4S is 3 grams heavier than iPhone 4 while maintaining the same dimensions of 115.2mm x 58.6mm x 9.3mm.

For the first time in iPhone history, iPhone 4S will be available in 64GB. Now iPhone 4S has 3 variants of storage capacity, 16GB (US$199), 32GB (US$299) and 64GB (US$399). Both black and white models for each variant will be available during launch.

OS X Lion
Mac OS X Lion is finally released, it cost US$29.99 in the Mac App Store. I was downloading this at 11MB/s (megabytes not megabits) yesterday night! If you have a slower Internet connection, Lion will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple Store (Singapore) for S$88. Mac OS X Lion is the eighth major release of Mac OS. It has more than 250 new features such as new Multi-Touch gestures, system-wide support for full screen apps, Mission Control, Mac App Store, Launchpad and a new re-designed Mail app.

It seems that Xcode 4.1 (App Store link) is free (usual US$4.99) for OS X Lion only and FaceTime is included in OS X Lion (App Store Link) (usual US$0.99).

The Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter is for 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro. Got it in Hong Kong for only HK$588 (~S$93). It is selling for S$128 in Singapore!

I am also using a 15″ MacBook Pro for work and I have a power adapter at work, it has been wired so nicely that it makes removing it very difficult and hence I decided to get a spare power adapter that allows me to bring it along when I am on call.
