Asked my mom to get me the Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter from iStudio in Changi Airport because she is travelling to Hong Kong with my dad. The retail price is S$108 but if you get it from the Airport, you don’t have to pay tax for it. So it is cheaper by about 7%, so it cost about S$100.93.

The Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is meant for MacBook Pro Retina 13″. As long as your MacBook uses 60W or less, you can use this particular adapter. Case in point, you can use this power adapter with MacBook Air 11″ or MacBook Air 13″.

During the pre-order of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the Apple Singapore Store at about 3.30pm, I am one of the many users who ran into problems buying the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus because clicking on the Select button as shown in the red box below does nothing. It should redirect you to another page so that you can add that into the cart. But unfortunately, that doesn’t happen.

Thanks to my colleague, Li Soon, who spotted the link and sent it to me. So for the next wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, just use the direct links below and click “Add to Cart” button on the right.

I took my old Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter to my office and hence I needed another one for my house. Went to VivoCity’s Infinite and bought it for S$38.

Surprisingly, I could not find this adapter in VivoCity’s Challenger. They only sell the Apple Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter.

Apple iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus Available in Singapore From 19th September 2014

Apple iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus Available in Singapore From 19th September 2014

Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at this morning event. The good news is that as usual, Singapore is one of the nine countries that will be available at the official launch date of 19th September 2014 alongside United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan. I thought China would be in the list as Apple seems to be focusing a lot of China lately.

The only difference between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the screen/display. In addition, the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation vs the digital image stabilisation on the iPhone 6.

Recently, my company bought for me an Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13″ (Late 2013) and it uses MagSafe 2 instead of MagSafe 1 power adapter because all MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina after June 2012 ships with MagSafe 2 power adapter.

I have an extra Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter at home and I needed a converter for it.

My current work laptop is a Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011). Despite getting it back in March 2012, the laptop itself is a 3-year old model. My company, migme, has a policy to change laptop every 3 years and this time round, they bought for me a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina (Late 2013).

The processor is a 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz) with 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM and 256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage. This configuration cost S$2,368.

Bought the Apple iPhone 5s Case (Brown) from the Apple’s Fifth Avenue store because I have to get something from that iconic flagship store! It is just slightly cheaper than Singapore if you pay by cash. Over there, it is retailing for US$39 + US$3.46 (NYC 8.875% tax) = US$42.46 (S$54), whereas in Singapore it is retailing for S$58.

I got the brown to match my Apple iPad Air Smart Case (Brown)!
