SingTel Postpaid’s price plans (in Singapore Dollars S$) for SingTel iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus
SingTel has revamped the naming for their postpaid price plans from SuperLite, Lite, Value, Plus and Prestige to Combo 1, Combo 2, Combo 3, Combo 6 and Combo 12 respectively. There is a new plan called Combo 4 which sits in-between Combo 3 and Combo 6.

Just in case you are not aware, from 19th August 2014, SingTel increases the price plan by S$3/month for all price plans except for Combo 2 and Combo 12.

Take the S$3/month as paying for the 4G VAS because for all the Combo plans, the 4G VAS are waived permanently. It seems that M1 and StarHub took the cue from SingTel and decided to waive their 4G VAS permanently as well. If not, for M1, the 4G VAS is waived till 31st December 2014. After that, you will also get charged at the usual rate of S$10.70/month. For StarHub, they charged extra S$2.14/month for 4G VAS from 1st July 2014 till 31st December 2015. After that, you will get charged at the usual rate of S$10.70/month.

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

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.

Of course clicking on that button now will redirect you back to the iPhone 6 store page because the current batch of phones have sold out. Try that for the next batch instead.

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.

Since I am a huge Dragon Ball fan, I bought all six boxes as there are only six different minifigures. They are selling 2 boxes for MYR10 (S$4) and hence it only cost me MYR30 (S$12) for all six minifigures.

I only saw one shop selling the same thing in Singapore. The shop name is called Peek A Box and they have a branch at West Gate (3 Gateway Drive, #03-42, Singapore 608532). Peek A Box is a box rental concept shop and one of the box shop is selling it for S$25.90. Of course, you can get them from ebay as well.

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.

It is the year 2014, stop using VGA (analog) and switch to DVI (digital)! If you need some convincing, check out the YouTube video below on the comparison of different display interfaces: VGA, DVI, HDMI & Display Port.

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.

I believe, all the three telcos (SingTel, M1 and StarHub) will have a launch event in the morning at 8am on Friday, 19th September 2014, similar to previous iPhone launches.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available in three sizes (16GB, 64GB and 128GB) and in three colors (Silver, Gold & Space Grey). They dropped the 32GB model from the lineup.
