Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter

· · · Apple, Cable

I took my old Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter to my office and hence I needed another one for my house. Went to VivoCity’s Infinite and bought it for S$38.

Surprisingly, I could not find this adapter in VivoCity’s Challenger. They only sell the Apple Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter.

Apple iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus Available in Singapore From 19th September 2014

· · · Mobile Phone

Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at this morning event. The good news is that as usual, Singapore is one of the nine countries that will be available at the official launch date of 19th September 2014 alongside United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan. I thought China would be in the list as Apple seems to be focusing a lot of China lately.

The only difference between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the screen/display. In addition, the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation vs the digital image stabilisation on the iPhone 6.

Bolse 25W 5A 3-Port USB Car Charger

The Bolse 25W 5A 3-Port USB Car Charger is retailing for US$14.99 (S$19) on Amazon.

When I heard of this product, I thought there are three USB ports, but actually there are only two USB ports and one attached Micro USB cable. The description actually meant you can charge three devices at one go because it is able to output a maximum of 5A.

Ikea 2015 Catalogue

· · · Furniture

Thanks to Ikea Singapore for sending me the awesomely designed limited edition XXL Ikea 2015 Catalogue.

When I first received it, I thought it was a MacBook since the design of the box is almost the same. Even when you unbox the catalogue, you can’t help but think of the similarity between this and the MacBook. I don’t think copy is a right word to use here, I would instead say Ikea spoof the packaging of a MacBook.

Here is my farewell message to them:

LAZADA 100th Celebration – Top 100 Sellers At Best Price & Vouchers Giveaway

Some of you may recall that earlier this year I did a review on the Fitbit Flex. Just a quick recap, for those of you who don’t remember, the Fitbit Flex is a wireless activity tracker that allows the user to monitor and track all the fitness and lifestyle related metrics such as distance walked, distance ran, number of hours slept, calorie consumption, and calories burnt. It also comes with a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time.

The Fitbit Flex is the fourth fitness band that I own. I was seeded with the Jawbone UP24 (S$249), bought the Jawbone UP (S$189.90) and Nike FuelBand (US$149 = S$190). Among the four fitness bands, the Fitbit Flex in my opinion is the best one of the lot as it offers many features, making it the most complete product of its kind. The Fitbit Flex is also extremely lightweight (13g) when compared to the Jawbone UP24 (~21g), Jawbone UP (23g) and the Nike FuelBand (32g).
