Direct URL To Apple Store To Add iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus To Cart

· · · Mobile Phone

During the pre-order of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the Apple Singapore Store at about 3.30pm, I am one of the many users who ran into problems buying the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus because clicking on the Select button as shown in the red box below does nothing. It should redirect you to another page so that you can add that into the cart. But unfortunately, that doesn’t happen.

Thanks to my colleague, Li Soon, who spotted the link and sent it to me. So for the next wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, just use the direct links below and click “Add to Cart” button on the right.

Dragon Ball Z LEGO Compatible Minifigures

· · · Toy

I was staying at Empire Hotel Subang for MTV World Stage 2014 (Thanks to GoodStuph for the sponsor). Below the hotel is a shopping mall called Empire Shopping Gallery.

What caught my eye was a shop named Anime Trend and they are located on the first floor of the shopping mall. The shop sells lots of figurines related to anime and I spotted them selling the Dragon Ball Z LEGO Compatible Minifigures! Of course they are not the official items since there are no official LEGO Dragon Ball Minifigs.

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.

In case you haven’t been following me, I left migme (previously known as mig33) after 4 years and 7 months there. I went in as a Web Engineer and along the way I got promoted to Senior Web Engineer. It has been an awesome ride with my fellow colleagues in migme.

Here is my farewell message to them:
