Early this year, DesignEvo reached out to me to share their website that offers free custom logo designs. It is an online logo maker with 4000 over templates. So I tried it, and it was actually quite impressive. In fact, I redesigned my logo within…

At this point, many of us have read the news about how Virtual Private Networks (VPN) can help people get around regional blocks on content like Netflix. While this has stirred up a debate in Singapore about parallel imports in the digital world, the discussion…

This is a special post, because this is the 1,000th blog post I published, that’s according to WordPress. I also happen to hit 100,000 views on my new WordPress blog since May after I migrated from Blogger (again, according to WordPress Jetpack site stats). I was…

3 years ago, I reviewed the first-generation Sony RX100, an amazing compact camera with outstanding performance. This year, Sony released its 4th-generation RX100, Mark 4. I requested Sony Singapore to lend me a unit so that I could review during the eventful holiday season. Features…

Year End Gift Guide 2015

December 14, 2015 0

My last year’s gift guide was quite popular, and so I’ve decided to do up another gift guide for this year. And like last year, all these products I recommend are personally reviewed (unless indicated otherwise). Prices indicated are recommended retail price, so the street price could…

As a tech enthusiast, I am happy to embrace new technology, software or gadgets, as long as it does not disrupt my life. So before I decide to upgrade Windows 10, I made sure I do it on a family laptop that is not mission-critical.…

29 Jul 2015 was the official launch of Microsoft Windows 10. To celebrate the launch, Microsoft organised a party at 72-13 Singapore. To most techies, Windows 10 was no stranger as it was on beta for several months prior. I did not join the beta program,…

I started using Google Blogger from Nov 2006. Back then, WordPress was already a competitive platform for blogging. I could not recall the reason for picking Blogger, but I suspect it has got to do with the familiarity of Google brand.   Over the past…

This is the first time I have created a Christmas Gift Guide for my blog readers, because in recent months I have reviewed a handful of really excellent products that don’t break the bank, that are affordable as gifts this holiday season. In case you…

I have invited a guest blogger to share this article. Iris was an active blogger with a large following and she shares her life experience. It was through that blog that I got to know her, and privileged to be her wedding day photographer. She closed…

This is a prelude article to my upcoming review on Sigma DP2 Merrill compact camera. When I received the Sigma DP2 Merrill compact camera, I wondered how I should approach my review. The Sigma DP2M, like many of its sibling models, is a very niche-market…

In my previous post, I shared with you how I managed to connect my own better-performing wireless router to the StarHub-issued Home Gateway router for WiFi home networking access. Now I have another situation: my Fibre Terminating Point (TP) is in my living room, and…

I have been using StarHub MaxOnline (MOL) Express for as long as I could remember. I have been contented with its download speed 16Mbps and upload speed of 1.5Mbps, until they made an offer I could not refuse during the recent COMEX show. The fibre-based MaxInfinity (MIF)…

I was trying out Angry Birds Rio on my Android (free download, yeah!) and was getting past level after level rather effortlessly (I hate it when I get stuck in one level and would give up on the game thereafter. So game developers, take note!).…

Some of my friends recently got interested in Twitter, so I decide to do this post to get them started. What’s Twitter for? Twitter is a platform where users post messages called “tweets”, and followers receive these tweets. Why do that? Twitter allows you to…
