Fabrix Booklet For iPad

Received a complimentary Fabrix Booklet For iPad (US$59.90) from Fabrix Cases. I was quite surprised they send it to me. Maybe because I bought a few cases from them. The first was for my MacBook Pro, the second was for my netbook and iPhone 3Gs and the third was a sleeve for my iPad which I forgot to blog about it.

I think I will be using this case from now on. There is like 3x iPad 16GB 3G + Wi-Fi in my family and all 3 are using the default Apple iPad Case, so it is hard to differentiate which iPad belongs to who if they are placed together.

Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit

When I first saw the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (S$38) available from Apple Singapore online store, the shipping estimate was 2-3 weeks. But regardless, I still went ahead and bought it together with my brother’s Apple iPad Case (S$58).

I went ahead and place my order on 27th July 2010, to my surprise the next day I received an email saying both items have been shipped and I received it today via DHL.

Crumpler Bag – The Moderate Embarrassment

I am a huge fan of Crumpler and have been looking for a working bag that fits my iPad and A4 sized paper. At first I thought of getting the Skivvy (Small) as it cost only S$81 but when I went to the Crumpler store at Ion Orchard, I changed my mind.

The Skivvy (Small) is basically like a laptop sleeve, it can fit just nice a 12″ laptop and have difficulty fitting in the charger and there are not much compartments to place my other gadgets like Camera, Portable HDD, etc.

Got My Apple 16GB iPad WiFi + 3G!

I want an Apple 16GB iPad WiFi + 3G version, tried ordering from comGateway, but my order got rejected the next day because of overwhelming response. I briefly mention about it to my colleague, Alon, and he said I could just order it online from Apple Store and ship it to his house and he will bring it to Singapore the next time he comes.

So I did just that! Ordered on 22nd April 2010, status change to “Prepared to Ship” on 1st May 2010 and was shipped on the 7th May 2010.

Mini Interview By My Paper (我报)

Did a mini interview by Kenny Chee of My Paper (我报) regarding EpiCentre taking pre-order for iPad. I have negative views on this as EpiCentre did not do a great job last year when they handle the pre-order for iPhone 3GS and end up those who pre-order with them got it later than SingTel customers. It will be fine if you pre-order the iPad WiFi version but for the iPad 3G + WiFi version, there might be a chance that it will be given to telecos first.

my paper (我报) is Singapore’s first free chinese newspaper, launched on 1 June 2006, is designed for bilingual, young adults aged 20-40, who have been exposed to Western and Chinese cultures and want their voices to be heard.
