Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter Review

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter which retails for S$110 in Singapore can be mistaken for Microsoft’s version of Google Chromecast. In fact, both of them are quite different. Despite their differences, I don’t think their prices should vary that much. So I am not too sure why Microsoft would priced the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter at US$59.95 when the Google Chromecast is only retailing for US$35.

Microsoft Wireless Display will work with Windows devices and Android devices but not iOS devices, whereas Google Chromecast will work with Android devices and iOS devices but not Windows devices.

Watching Netflix In Singapore With Unblock-Us SmartDNS

I did a post before on Watching Netflix In Singapore With UnoTelly SmartDNS and today, I will be featuring an alternative to UnoTelly which is Unblock-Us.

Unblock-Us was started in 2010 in Toronto, Canada. They are the first company in the world to offer a DNS-based solution (SmartDNS) to give people access to content not available in their location. They strongly believe in anonymity and privacy and hence they moved their operations to Barbados in response to the proposed Canadian legislation which would have required them to keep logs on their customer activities for 6 months.

Fitbit Charge Review

Fitbit Charge started selling in Singapore on 19th December 2014 and it is currently retailing for S$169. The Fitbit Charge is available in four colors: Black, Slate, Blue and Burgundy.

The Fitbit Charge is not meant to be the successor of the Fitbit Flex. When it comes to physical appearance, Fitbit Flex is smaller and doesn’t have a display whereas Fitbit Charge is two times bigger and offer a OLED display. Both serve different target audiences and that is the reason why Fitbit Flex is still on sale.
