Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure

· · · Hardware

I first played with a laser measuring device in Tech in Asia‘s office where the events team use it to measure event spaces to plan for banners placement. I was amazed at how fast it is to obtain a measurement for a room. After that I never look at measuring tape the same way again.

Not saying that the measuring tape is not useful, I still think it is useful to measure smaller objects. Whereas to measure spaces between walls and pillars, the laser measuring device really excels.

Sonos PLAY:5 Now Available in Singapore

The new SONOS PLAY:5 is now available in Singapore for S$999 in IT stores like Challenger and online at store.tcacoustic.com.sg.

About SONOS:5
The new SONOS PLAY:5 delivers a listening experience that is closer than ever to how every track was mastered in the studio. Built with six synchronized, custom-designed drivers, the speaker’s three mid-woofers create smooth mids and deep, powerful lows that go as low as 27Hz, and three tweeters deliver crystal clear highs at any volume. The drivers are strategically placed to create a soundstage that is much wider than expected in a single speaker, creating room-filling sound with precise separation of vocals and instruments.

Google Universal 22.5W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger

Bought the Google Universal 22.5W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger together with the Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable for US$39.99 (S$57) and got it to ship through HopShopGo.

This is probably the only trustable USB Type-C Charger that I can find which has more than one USB Type-C port and is reasonably priced. Besides the charger, it also comes with a 1.8m USB Type-C to Type-C cable (USB 2.0 speed) which itself already cost US$19.99 (S$29).

Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable

· · · Cable

The Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable has been out of stock for quite some time. I managed to buy it when it just got back in stock on 9th November 2015. Because it doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, I have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The retail price is US$12.99 (S$19) excluding shipping fees from HopShopGo and comes in only one length which is 1m. It is a USB 2.0 cable and hence the data transfer speed will be capped at 480Mb/s.

Two years after Heart Of The Swarm (Zerg) and five years after Wings Of Liberty (Terran), the StarCraft 2 trilogy will come to a close with Legacy of the Void (Protoss).

StarCraft 2 – Legacy of the Void was officially launched on 10th November 2015. I have collected both Heart Of The Swarm and Wings Of Liberty Collector’s Edition and of course I can’t miss out on this last one.

Apple USB-C Charge Cable (2m)

· · · Apple, Cable

The Apple USB Type-C Cable is retailing for S$42 and comes in only one length which is 2m. I wish they have it in 0.5m and 1m as well.

There are no markings on the USB ends on the cable because there is no need to since it has a reversible plug orientation. This is similar to the Apple Lighting cable as there is no marking on the Lightning end of that cable as well.
