Besides the Pioneer Rayz earphones and Rayz Plus earphones, Pioneer also launches another Lightning powered “appcessories” called the Rayz Rally. Its primary feature is conference speaker, but being an audio lover myself, I though it works pretty well as a portable speaker too. Design and…

My colleague broke her smartphone display last week, and I took the opportunity to grab a photo moment. Always fascinated with the crack lines, such random beauty that is never the same with each destruction. She had to go about her entire day without a…

Instagram has got a new update feature: Stories. It works just like Snapchat. Right. With this enhancement, Instagram has brought Snapchat features to the massive community of users who never used Snapchat on its own. Users like me. For sure, the launch of Instagram Stories will increase…

This is my very first formal review of a pen. Well, technically-speaking, it is classified as a gadget accessory, since it has a screen stylus on the other end of the pen which you can use on touch screen devices, from smartphones to tablets and even…

I recalled a true story where my colleague “lost” his car in a HDB car park. To add to the panic, it was a new car. He kept walking around the vicinity and wondered how it could have been “stolen”. An hour (or less) later,…

After making a few personal orders and blogging about them, GearBest.com found my site, and apparently determined that it is influential enough to contact me for collaboration. What they do is to ship me products so that I can try out and publish my reviews. I…

Have you heard? The new iPhone 6 can be bent! That’s awesome, if you ask me. Now there is another way to customise the premium smartphone. How about having the ability to curve your iPhone to the shape of your butt or your pocket. This…

iPhone 6 goes on sale today in Singapore. Apple fans: It’s bigger! It’s faster! It’s thinner! it’s prettier! It’s better! Critics: It’s nothing exciting. Android devices have more features, more variety, more flexibility. My say? iPhone 6 is a routine update of the Apple smartphone,…
