My family got me the Apple Thunderbolt Cable (2m) from Apple Store at IFC, Hong Kong when they are there for a holiday. It is retailing for HK$288 in Hong Kong and S$48 in Singapore. Due to the weakening Singapore Dollar against the Hong Kong Dollar, it is about the same price after currency conversion. It used to be slightly cheaper.

You can connect your MacBook Air to your iMac using this cable and this will turn your iMac into a secondary monitor.

The Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo (8TB) is retailing for S$1,199 which is pretty expensive for a external hard drive.

It comes with dual Thunderbolt ports that allows you to daisy-chain up to six My Book Thunderbolt Duo drives (48 TB using six Thunderbolt Duo 8 TB drives) or other devices such as monitors, media players, and video / audio editors.

Ordered the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter for S$38 on the day it was announced at WWDC 2012 and it was delivered to me the following day!

Looks like they already have ready stock in Singapore. I went to Funan’s Multimedia Integrated and could not find it, apparently they have not distributed it to the resellers yet. I really wish Apple would open a store here in Singapore, like what they did in Hong Kong.

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).
