Got the Apple USB Ethernet Adapter for S$35.51 (normal price is S$38) from iStudio located in Changi Airport Terminal 3 while I went to Malaysia for my birthday celebration.

As you are aware by now the MacBook Air does not come with an ethernet port because of its slim design, so if you need to use a LAN cable for MacBook Air, this adapter is your best and only bet. Call me old fashion but I still prefer to transfer files over LAN as it is the speed is much faster and more stable.

When I first joined mig33 back on 1st February 2010, I got a brand new MacBook Pro 15″ (Mid 2009) running on Intel Core 2 Duo (2.66 GHz) and with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Over the years, my MacBook Pro became slower and slower as applications get more and more intensive and OS gets more and more resource demanding.

I made a couple of “complains” to my immediate supervisor and eventually he approved my Purchase Order (PO) to get a new MacBook.

Bought the Apple TV (2nd Generation) from San Francisco’s Apple Store for US$99 (after tax is US$107.67 = S$136.96).

I wish they sold it in Singapore but because there is no iTunes Movies/TV Shows rental service in Singapore, I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Nevertheless, it is still not a bad media player for that price. Not forgetting that the Apple TV is powered by Apple A4 chip.

After my trip to Google Building 44, I headed down to Apple – The Company Store which is located at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA 95014. It is about 15 minutes drive from Google Building 44.

The famous “I visited the mothership” t-shirt is no longer in print, and now the new t-shirt design prints “I visited the Apple campus, but that’s all I’m allowed to say.”

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.
