Launched last month, the UE BOOM is a 360° Bluetooth wireless speaker which is water resistant and even shock proof. It is out in stores retailing for S$299 and available in 4 colors (Blue, Red, Black and White).

My first impression of UE BOOM is the sound is loud and the bass is pretty good, the only downside is that it is a little pricey.

NFC Tags by Tapway

Always wanted to play with NFC tags to see how some tasks can be automated.

I am using iPhone 5 which does not comes with NFC capability, but for my work phone, I am using the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (LTE) which does come with NFC capability. Samsung has it’s own brand of NFC Tags called Samsung TecTiles, but unfortunately it will not be available in Singapore till mid-December 2012.
