SoundTeoh No. 77 Wireless Doorbell

My current doorbell at home has lasted me for 28 years (since 1985) and hence I got a new SoundTeoh No. 77 Wireless Doorbell from Funan’s Challenger for S$28.60 (member’s price: S$25.74).

28 years later, it seems technology also changes doorbell. There are so many types right now: wireless, wired, AC powered, battery powered, mp3 (using SD card) and 20 built-in tones.

Toshiba FlashAir Review

Toshiba FlashAir is the “no frills” version you can get out of Flucard Pro and Eye-Fi Pro.

It is being distributed by Trek 2000 (makers of Thumbdrive) in Singapore and is retailing for S$100+. Since Trek don’t enforce a Recommended Retail Pricing (RRP) model to the dealers, I can’t give you an official pricing. Right now only 1 capacity is available which is the 8GB.

Logitech MK260 Wireless Combo

Bought the Logitech MK260 Wireless Combo (Keyboard & Mouse) from Challenger for S$39 (member’s price is S$36.90). It is one of the cheapest branded wireless keyboard and mouse combo that I can find in Challenger. The other option is Wireless Desktop 800 which is retailing for S$39 (member’s price is S$37).

Some notable features of the Logitech MK260 includes use of 128-bit AES encryption for encrypting data transfer between the keyboard and receiver, spill-resistant keyboard and battery life that can go up to 24 months for the keyboard and five months for the mouse.

Buffalo AirStation HighPower WCR-HP-G300 Review

The Buffalo AirStation HighPower WCR-HP-G300 is a budget router that is retailing only for S$59. Since it is targeted at lower end consumers, the specifications are just entry level.

The router is only able to support LAN/WAN speeds of 10/100Mbps and 2.4GHz band for Wireless-N speed up to 300Mbps. On a side note, the router is extremely light.

Phottix Cleon 2 Wireless Remote C8

Bought the Phottix Cleon 2 Wireless Remote C8 from Red Dot Photo for S$59. You can pay using PayPal and delivery is free! Ordered on the 16th February 2010 and it was delivered to me in just 2 days, on the 18th February 2010!

The reason why I decided to get a remote control is because I have been bringing out my tripod lately to take group shots and it is kinda a hassle to keep repeatedly setting the timer. Did some research on Club Snap Forums and found out that the Phottix is one of the best wireless remote around.

Configuring iPhone/iPod Touch WLAN For NUS Wireless

Here is a tutorial on how to configure your iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch, or iPod Touch (2nd Gen) to connect to the NUS Wireless network. We will be using NUS WLAN SSID “NUS” instead of “NUSOPEN”, as “NUS” is protected by PEAP and it is much faster.
