Singtel

On the same day Singtel unveiled their new logo and new service commitments to customer service, their Group CEO Ms Chua Sock Koong also talked about discriminatory Internet access. She reiterated her belief that telcos should be allowed to charge major content providers a premium for users to get faster access to their content. I’m sorely disappointed. Ms Chua used examples like WhatsApp,…

Acer Chromebook 13 Review – Part 2

Acer Chromebook 13

Chrome OS, the operating system that runs on Chromebook, is a totally different beast from Windows or Mac OS X. It may be based on Linux kernel, but that’s not the same as Linux in general.

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.

As a Bluetooth keyboard, the Logitech Keys-To-Go actually…

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.
