LTA Needs To Up Their Online Smartness

Pothole on Bukit Timah Road

Often times, I feel all our e-government, smart nation, and whatever other initiatives to take us to the next level of a futuristic city, is all just superficial. I’ve complained previously about how some government online services have “working hours”. (How absurd right?) I could give other examples, but today, my gripe is with the Land Transport Authority (LTA). I…

First Look At Leagoo Shark 1

Leagoo Shark 1

Leagoo’s newest Shark 1 Android smartphone is taking on the giants of smartphones. It’s big, with a huge 6-inch IPS display, and even bigger, with a really humongous 6300 mAh battery. Yet, the Shark 1’s body is just 8.5 mm thin, and still packs all the impressive specifications you’d expect from a premium smartphone, including fingerprint sensor and more. The Shark 1…

DSC06961

The tyre on my car was getting quite bald, so it was time to change them. It was a little overdue too. I went to the same tyre shop that I had gone to the last time, and changed a set of 4 Yokohama 205/65R15 94H tyres. The price seems reasonable, at S$120 each. I had in the past patronised Autobacs, but…

The NTA Has Competition

It turns out such an association has indeed been formed. I suppose it was a matter of time that it…

The latter is the company whose chief product, Parallels Desktop, is a hardware virtualisation solution for Mac computers. Did you know there’s Docker integration in Parallels Desktop?
