With two WAN ports to connect to different ISP in either load-balancing or failover configuration, you can ensure that your Internet keeps going, even if one of the ISP is down. The…

Builtin Spyware In Windows 10

I’ll admit I’m not much of a Windows fan. Among the many reasons, one of them would be the presumption that Windows is surreptitiously sending data about my computer to Microsoft servers, and perhaps the NSA, MI5/MI6, KGB, and others might have a dip at it too. Well we’re now getting to hear what Microsoft is admitting to collecting. In what…

Android Users Beware Wi-Fi Attacks

You’ve probably heard that using public or insecure Wi-Fi networks can be dangerous. Well, this point is now being reinforced by a recent disclosure by Google’s Project Zero concerning a serious security vulnerability in Broadcom Wi-Fi chips. This is the Wi-Fi hardware used by numerous smart devices, and there’s a good chance you might use an affected device. Technically, this security vulnerability applies…

Bragi The Dash Review

I recently got to try what is, probably, the most technologically fascinating earphones I’ve tried to date. It’s Bragi’s Dash earphones, a truly wireless pair of earphones born out of a KickStart project in 2014. It has just about every imaginable feature you could ask to have, all of them in a very well-designed product. Bragi raised almost US$3.4 million on…

What Makes An Item Supicious

You’ve probably heard by now, Hougang MRT Station was closed temporarily yesterday because of an unattended piece of luggage. The police were called in, and after the bag was found to be “non-dangerous”, the station was reopened after about an hour of disruption. Good thing the incident wasn’t more eventful than that. But I’ve always wondered, what makes an item…

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…
