Apple TV (4th Generation)

Pre-ordered the Apple TV (4th Generation) last Monday, 26th October 2015, and it was shipped to me on the official release date which was 30th October 2015 via DHL Express.

In Singapore, the Apple TV (4th Generation) is retailing for S$248 for the 32GB variant and S$318 for the 64GB variant. I bought the 32GB variant because I haven’t figured out if I needed so much space on a media player.

UI Stencils – Pixel Ruler

· · · Design

I bought the Pixel Ruler from UI Stencils for US$29 (S$41) and shipping to Singapore is an additional US$14.60 (S$21) via USPS First-Class Package International Service.

The Pixel Ruler is a good tool to have for responsive screen size sketching. It is a heavy-duty gauge stainless steel ruler with pixel increments. There are markers on the ruler for mobile, tablet and widescreen (laptop) sizes.
