Watching Netflix In Singapore With UnoTelly SmartDNS

There are two ways in which you can watch Netflix in Singapore. The first is using a VPN and the other is using a DNS. Personally, I prefer the DNS method because you just have to configure your router’s DNS and point to UnoTelly’s SmartDNS. With your router configured, everybody connected to the router can easily access Netflix on their computer or on their mobile/tablet devices.

What Is Netflix (From: Wikipedia)
Netflix, Inc. is an American provider of on-demand Internet streaming media available to viewers in North and South America, the Caribbean, and parts of Europe (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom), and of flat rate DVD-by-mail in the United States, where mailed DVDs are sent via Permit Reply Mail. The company was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. It started its subscription-based digital distribution service in 1999, and by 2009 it was offering a collection of 100,000 titles on DVD and had surpassed 10 million subscribers.

Nokia Wireless Charging Stand (DT-910)

I won the Nokia Wireless Charging Stand (DT-910) worth S$128 from TheGeekyBeng’s Great Nokia Giveaways.

This is the second Qi wireless charger that I have, the first being the Anker Ultra-Slim Qi-Enabled Wireless Charging Pad. Both wireless chargers have no problem charging my Lumia 930 and Nexus 5 with their cases on.

Just Mobile HeadStand

I am currently using a headphone stand that Li Xiang got for me on Taobao for CN¥190 (S$38). It is pretty expensive considering it is a rip off of Just Mobile’s HeadStand and the quality is shit/horrible.

I have been eying on the Just Mobile HeadStand for a very long time but similar to Just Mobile AluCable Mini, the shipping cost puts me off. In Singapore, I saw it being sold at Stereo for a ridiculously marked up price of S$89.90.

Daiyo USB 3.0 A To Micro B Cable

· · · Cable

The USB 3.0 cable of my Western Digital My Passport Essential SE (USB 3.0) decided to give up on me after almost four years and hence I have to get a replacement cable.

I was expecting it to be difficult to find since USB 3.0 cables are not that widespread yet in physical stores. Luckily, I was wrong and I managed to find the Daiyo USB 3.0 A To Micro B Cable from Funan’s Challenger and it cost S$13.90 (after member’s discount: S$12.51).

Smarter Ways To Backup Your Data

· · · Storage

I am a huge fan of Western Digital and I use their products for my backup purposes, I thought I might share their article on “Smarter Ways To Backup Your Data”. Personally, I am using some of the Western Digital products listed in the article below.

I am using Synology DiskStation DS413j as my NAS and inside it I have 4x 1TB WD Red hard drives. The NAS is used for backing up my media files for my Mac and PC.

Nokia Lumia 930 Case (CP-637)

Bought my Nokia Lumia 930 Case (CP-637) for my Nokia Lumia 930 for S$39 at Funan’s Nokia Store. There are three colors available, Orange, Green and Black.

Looking for a case for the Lumia 930 is challenging because none of the gadgets/electronics store carries it. You can only get it from Nokia stores themselves or from their solutions partners’ stores like (GadgetWorld, 3Mobile or Handphoneshop).

Just Mobile Xtand Go

Being a gadget enthusiast, I don’t have a car windscreen mount for my phone. When driving, I always place my phone on the cover of my car’s cup holder. So when I need to check Google Maps when driving, I have to glance down for a few milliseconds and look back up again which is kinda challenging.

So I decided to get a windscreen mount for my phone. I saw the Just Mobile Xtand Go at Bangkok Central Embassy‘s iStudio and it looks pretty ok so I bought it for TH฿1090 (S$42).
