OEM Apple AirPods Max Silicone Cover

The anodized aluminum cups of the Apple AirPods Max are prone to scratches over time, and once there are scratches on them, it will be difficult to unsee.

I think Shopee has everything! So I managed to find the OEM Apple AirPods Max Silicone Cover there at a cheap price of S$3.19. Shipping to Singapore an additional S$1.

Baseus 65W GaN Dual USB-C Plus USB-A Charger

As the product name sounds, Baseus 65W GaN Dual USB-C Plus USB-A Charger, is a 65W charger that has two USB-C ports and one USB-A port.

There are too many buzz words in the Lazada product title like GaN2 and PD4, which I think are not valid. I have not heard anything on GaN2 or PD4 yet.

Installing Ubuntu Server On Synology NAS

Before we start the installation of Ubuntu Server to Synology NAS, you will need to download the Ubuntu Server ISO image from Ubuntu.com. As of the time of writing, the version of Ubuntu Server stands at 20.10, and the file size is almost 1GB.

Once the download started, you can log in to your Synology NAS’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) to install the Virtual Machine Manager from Package Center.

Apple HomePod Mini

After getting my bonus, I went ahead and bought the Apple HomePod Mini from Shopee.

As HomePod Mini is not officially released in Singapore, you will not be able to get it directly from Apple. Hence, I bought from a shop called monmartechnology on Shopee.

Synology SNV3000 Series NVMe M.2 SSD

Synology started out having its own brand of RAM for as long as I can remember. I covered them back in 2017. After that they went on to have its own brand of M.2 NVMe SSD (SNV3000), SATA SSD (SAT5200), and SATA HDD (HAT5300).

One of the reasons Synology introduces their own lineup of SSD and HDD is for compatibility. The SSD and HDD are optimized for use with their own Synology NAS with customized firmware. Also, when things go wrong, the users don’t need to contact different vendors. They can bring it all back to Synology.
