Happy 10th Birthday, iPhone

I still remember the day I was sitting in my room, at my desk, watching the keynote and calculating how long would I have to save in order to afford the phone should it come to Singapore eventually (roughly 7 months, I was a student then). Many months later when it seemed like the iPhone […]

iPhone 7? Maybe not

For all it is worth, early rumors of the next iPhone are showing something different about Apple’s strategy this time round – iPhone 7 might be the iPhone 6ss. Nothing says more about a new iPhone being “new” than a need to buy a new case for it. Right now the rumors are; Same industrial […]

MacRyu’s Mac Setup 2014

So in 2007 I posted my old setup based around my 2007 24″ Aluminum iMac and 12″ iBook on Flickr. Then in 2011 I posted my revamped setup based on the same iMac but with a relatively new 2010 MacBook Air. After another 3 years and spending the last 12 months not bothered with updating […]

How to insult your Android-using friends / relatives this Christmas / New Year / Chinese New Year

So it’s the festive season again. If you are like me, this holiday is the perfect chance to tease, insult, those who have chosen, for whatever reason, to stand on Google’s side and use an Android. Unlike some lesser countries it’s highly unlikely you will ever find yourself in a situation where the number of […]

A tale of iPhones – The 4, the 4S and a little bit of the Origin

Yeah yeah I know. I didn’t join the Starhub queue. I had a Starhub guy come to my place to give me my iPhone 4S in the comfort of my living room at 12pm sharp yesterday. Truth be told, I would love to go to the Singtel launch even though I’m not re-contracting with them […]
