Easy to Say, Difficult to Do

Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 8.54.48 pm

Reading the news today, I learnt that Illegal orders are, of course, illegal. Thank you, judge, for clarifying, and further that we don’t need to follow illegal orders. The challenge, though, is how do you know an order is illegal? Many people aren’t even well versed with our law. How are they able to determine if an order is illegal?…

LTA: Make Yourself Useful

IMG_20141219_071651

LTA’s launch of their much criticised, and arguably useless, Taxi-Taxi@SG app, reminds me of another gripe I have about an LTA initiative. That of getting information on bus arrival times. It’s part of their MyTransport app. I’m pleased that LTA knows it “feels great to know when the bus will arrive.” Now, if only it will actually work. Reasonably well. Alright, I’m…

OnePlus Turns One

OnePlus One

OnePlus, the company that makes the One phone, just turned one year old today. With all my posts about OnePlus, you’d be forgiven to think that my blog has become a OnePlus fan page. It isn’t. The One is a really unique phone, and there are indeed some newsworthy developments to share, particularly if you are interested in the One…

Teddy & Me Cafe

Teddy & Me Cafe

Mr Bean Cafe, or the Teddy & Me Cafe as it’s officially known, opened in Marina Square several months ago. I’ve passed by several times, thinking about having desserts, but I only got around to it today. I think it’s a place we’ll be coming back again, many more times. I’d guess everyone knows who Mr Bean is. This cafe is…

Buying Invites for OnePlus One

OnePlus One

The OnePlus company may only be just one year old, but their One phone has won Stuff Gadgets Awards 2014 readers’ gadget of the year, and also tops in Lifehacker Best Android Phone 2014. I’m surprised. But the OnePlus One is indeed a really good phone, and also very much sought after. The biggest problem with the One, of course, is…

StarHub Broadband Upgrade

_DSC8878

The time had come to re-contract my broadband. I wasn’t looking forward to it. I’ve heard too many horror stories about people who faced all sorts of problems whenever something needed to be done with their fibre broadband connection. It could be understandable if you changed provider, but even if you stayed with the same one, there could be interruptions. I did…

Logitech Keys-To-Go Review

Logitech Keys-To-Go

Logitech unveiled their new Keys-To-Go Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad in late October. This is a nice svelte looking standalone Bluetooth keyboard. It doesn’t attach itself or doubles up as a cover for any iPad, so in that sense it is for all iPads, or all iOS devices as Logitech describes it. As a Bluetooth keyboard, the Logitech Keys-To-Go actually…

Jabra Stealth Review

Jabra Stealth

If you need to use a Bluetooth headset, but don’t like the clunky kinds that draw too much attention to yourself, the diminutive Jabra Stealth might be just want you’d want. The Jabra Stealth may be small, and quite affordable too, but it is not short on quality and features. Weighting at less than 8 g, the Jabra Stealth is…

Nillkin Protection for OnePlus One

_DSC9957

Many of us purchase some kind of protection, be it a case or a screen protector, to keep our smartphones safe. Considering the cost of most flagship smartphones, it makes sense to protect your investment. The OnePlus is an awesome bargain, but it’s such a rarity that it also deserves some insurance. I set out to try some Nillkin protection products….

IU With Unhelpful Error Message

IMG_20141202_134331

So because someone couldn’t think to produce more sensible error codes, I wasted one hour of my time to sort out this problem, plus maybe half a day worrying about a possible In-vehicle Unit (IU) fault. I don’t know how many other people met with the same problem as me. Think of all the accumulated time wasted, simply because someone couldn’t…
