Huawei P10 First Look

Huawei has been making pretty good smartphones. We wouldn’t expect any less with their latest flagship, the P10 and P10 Plus. The pair succeeds the P9 and P9 Plus, both also rather outstanding. Still, the P10 which I have a quick look at here, with its incremental improvements, is a really awesome upgrade. The P10 officially becomes available today. It’s quite reminiscent of…

Neffos X1 Review

TP-Link stepped into the smartphone market last year with the launch of three devices under their new Neffos brand. I reviewed the Neffos C5 earlier in 2016. They’re continuing to push on with their effort with more smartphones, the latest being the X series comprising the X1 and the X1 Max. I have the Neffos X1 for this review. The Neffos…

Be Part Of SMRT Live Signalling Tests

SMRT announced that all trains traveling on the North-South Line will pause for 10 minutes around 11pm on Tuesday 28th March. This is when they will be switching over to commence trial on a new signalling system that allows trains to travel at closer intervals. I’m sure this sounds all like good news for train commuters. Except that, why in the…

Sneak Peak At Bragi The Dash

Bragi’s Dash started as a Kickstarter project back in 2014, at around the same time as Earin, which I had reviewed last year. They are both truly wireless earphones, truly wireless being something that had to be emphasised. Today, there are perhaps a dozen of such earphones, including those from Apple and Samsung. But Bragi’s Dash, or as they prefer to…

BlackBerry DTEK60 Review

The BlackBerry name may be synonymous with smartphone security. It was, after all, the device approved for President Barrack Obama. You probably also know that BlackBerry makes Android smartphones. However, I am awesomely surprised with BlackBerry’s latest device, the DTEK60. The DTEK60 easily competes with the best Android smartphones, and reminds us that BlackBerry is still alive and kicking. Announced in January this…

Lazada 3rd Birthday Campaign

I don’t usually want to overly promote any particular product, shopping site, or other commercial offering, lest this blog becomes too much like an advertising site. But I looked at Lazada’s birthday sale and it does look like some of their deals are really sweet. Then there’s my Lazada affiliate link I am, admittedly, incentivised to promote. The Razer X Lazada surprise…

Sneak Peek At Razer X Lazada Surprise Box

Lazada turns three years old this month. To celebrate, they will be selling Surprise Boxes from 21st to 23rd March, for just $29, but containing products said to be worth at least $100. The contents of the Surprise Boxes are secret (sort of), but you at least get to choose the type of Surprise Box, based on leading brands from the likes…

Hacking Tools To Be Criminalised

In the news last week, one of the headlines caught my attention. It was about the proposed expansion of the Computer Misuse and Cybersecurity Act. It was reported that obtaining hacking tools to commit crime, or the use of personal data that was obtained through hacks, will be criminalised under the proposed changes. For people involved in IT security, the changes…

ASUS ZenPad 3 8.0 Good Upgrade For Nexus 7

I’ve owned the Nexus 7 (2013) for quite a while now. It’s actually still perfectly functional, though it’s certainly getting a bit old. I’ve been wondering, what tablet would be a befitting replacement? I previously reviewed the ASUS ZenPad 3 8.0, and I think it’s probably the best candidate to succeed the Nexus 7. It’s a pity that Google themselves hasn’t quite launched a…

Igloohome Smart Deadbolt Lock Upgraded

Singapore-based Igloohome has a new smart lock. It’s not completely new, but the original Igloohome Smart Lock I reviewed last year has been updated to the Smart Deadbolt Lock 02. The new lock is largely the same as before, but upgraded in several ways. In particular, Bluetooth communication has been significantly improved for Android devices. The Igloohome smart digital lock stands out for allowing…
