Netflix To Launch In Singapore In Early 2016

Netflix is coming to Singapore in early 2016 alongside to countries like South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Hopefully the selection of movies and TV series are good.

What Is Netflix (From: Wikipedia)

Ambi Climate Review

Ambi Climate is a small, sleek internet of things (IoT) device that makes your existing infrared remote-controlled air conditioner smart. It aims to make your aircon usage more efficient and hence lower your energy bill.

Ambi Climate uses predictive climate control by monitoring the temperature and environment both inside and outside maximizing energy use. In fact, thermal comfort isn’t about temperature alone. That is why Ambi Climate takes into a consideration sunlight, temperature, humidity and other elements to maintain a more comfortable, energy efficient interior environment. The device also learns from your own preferences and daily routine, and will tailor your indoor climate around you and your family

Jabra Sport Coach Wireless Earbuds Review

The Jabra Sport Coach is retailing in Singapore for S$248 and is available in three colors, Blue, Red and Yellow. It is sort of the younger sibling of the Jabra Sport Pulse (S$298) which I reviewed back in May 2015.

Coach vs Pulse
The Jabra Sport Coach is S$50 cheaper because it doesn’t come with the in-ear heart rate monitor of the Jabra Sport Pulse. Surprisingly, the dimensions and weight of both the Coach and Pulse are the same, measuring about 18mm x 21mm x 32mm (H x W x D) and weighing 16g. I guess the weight of the Pulse’s in-ear heart rate monitor is being replaced by the Coach’s TrackFit Motion Sensor. The TrackFit Motion Sensor measures your distance, pace, steps, cadence and calories burned more accurately for cross-training and running.

Google’s New Logo

· · · Software

Google unveiled it’s biggest change to it’s logo for the first time in 16 years! The design is flatter and the font used is now Sans-Serif. I think the logo now looks younger, brighter and more cheerful.

The blue “g” logo has also been replaced with a four-color “G” to match the new logo.

Acronis True Image Unlimited is now known as Acronis True Image Cloud and it now supports multiple devices and mobile devices. This means you can backup your Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows devices using the Acronis True Image App on the respective platforms.

Acronis True Image 2016
Acronis True Image 2015 has been replaced by Acronis True Image 2016 and it now does only local backup and recovery, making it a clear separation with Acronis True Image Cloud. One of the major new feature of True Image 2016 is the “try & decide”. This feature provides you a controlled, temporary environment to safely test new software, drivers, and system configurations.

Received the Cooler Master Power Fort 6,000mAh as a door gift when I went to Cooler Master Make It Yours Seminar two weeks ago.

The Power Fort is Cooler Master’s series of power banks. I didn’t even know they do power banks.

Timbuk2 Trek Book Portable Organizer

Li Xiang bought two Timbuk2 custom bags, the Custom Prospect Pack Bag (US$111/S$156) and the Custom Eula bag (US$39/S$55) during the Timbuk2 20% off custom bag sale.

Since I already have a lot of Timbuk2 bags, I didn’t get another Timbuk2 bag.
