LG G Watch Now Available In Singapore

There are three official Android Wear devices in the market right now, two of which are already available for sale, the Samsung Galaxy Gear Live and the LG G Watch.

The most third and most anticipated Android Wear device is the Motorola’s Moto 360 which I am guessing will be on sale next month (September 2014).

Jawbone UP24

The Jawbone UP24 was released back on the 10th April 2014 in Singapore and it currently retails for S$249. It comes in three sizes (Small, Medium and Large) and available in two colors (Onyx aka Black and Persimmon aka Red).

The Jawbone UP24 is an updated model of the original Jawbone UP which is still being sold for S$189.90.
The UP24 adds in wireless syncing via Bluetooth 4.0 LE which is missing from the original UP and it still manages to maintain the same weight; 19g (Small), 22g (Medium) and 23g (Large). Having used both the UP and UP24, I totally love the addition of this feature because it eliminates the hassle of removing the band just to sync.

Watching Netflix In Singapore With UnoTelly SmartDNS

There are two ways in which you can watch Netflix in Singapore. The first is using a VPN and the other is using a DNS. Personally, I prefer the DNS method because you just have to configure your router’s DNS and point to UnoTelly’s SmartDNS. With your router configured, everybody connected to the router can easily access Netflix on their computer or on their mobile/tablet devices.

What Is Netflix (From: Wikipedia)
Netflix, Inc. is an American provider of on-demand Internet streaming media available to viewers in North and South America, the Caribbean, and parts of Europe (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom), and of flat rate DVD-by-mail in the United States, where mailed DVDs are sent via Permit Reply Mail. The company was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. It started its subscription-based digital distribution service in 1999, and by 2009 it was offering a collection of 100,000 titles on DVD and had surpassed 10 million subscribers.
