Singtel Prices for the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c in Singapore!

Click on the image to view it in full size. This year’s prices are quite a bit higher, due to the fluctuation in exchange rates. It is however, interesting to note that the iPhone 5c is only retailing at $318 at the lite plan (the plan most Singaporeans will pick), while the iPhone 5s is […]

The Mystery of the iPhone 5C placement in Apple’s lineup

As recent rumors have pegged, tonight’s Apple event will introduce two new iPhones – the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. We have seen enough leaks to know everything there is to know about the iPhone 5C’s five colors and construction, and how they are really just iPhone 5 innards in a new plastic housing. […]

The iMessage Flaw (aka the iMessage Bug) Detailed and Explained (mostly)

Man, this is going to be really long. How should I start? So Apple introduced iMessage with iOS 5. Just like iOS 5 itself, there are, rather than calling them bugs, what I will term inconsistencies or ideas that aren’t very well thought-out before execution all over the OS, and iMessage’s authentication process is one […]

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 […]

Why iOS 4.3 will bring Mobile Hotspot to the majority of iPhone owners before Android does to its minions

So I posted a tweeted the other day declaring that the majority of current Android phone owners will never see their phones ever getting the Mobile Hotspot feature despite Android announcing the feature first in Froyo, Android 2.2, which was released in May 2010. Why did I say that? It’s very simple. The majority of […]

On the whole iPad and iPhone losing their physical home buttons rumor….

This whole rumor was probably triggered by the fact that iOS 4.3 beta 1 for iPad comes with multitouch gesture controls for changing applications (by swiping multiple fingers horizontally, like on the Mac for changing pages), returning to home screen (by the 5-finger pinch), etc. These gestures definitely will be familiar to current Mac users […]

First Post of 2011 – MacRyu’s iMac Setup 2011

Almost five years ago, I posted my iMac setup (basically the stuff that’s on my work desk 90% of the time) on flickr. Since that time, components of that 2007 setup have changed, items have been removed and added, well, mostly added (thus a much messier table), and for the first post of 2011, I […]

Possible Pricing for iPhone in Singapore

Using the fact that Optus is Singtel-owned, the pricing that Optus released for the Australian iPhone today is extremely interesting, and gives deep insights on what the possible pricing for the iPhone in Singapore will be. It is also highly possible that the plans offered in Australia under Optus will be similar to the plans […]

It’s Official: Singtel to carry iPhone in Singapore, India, Australia and Philippines

It’s finally official: Singtel, as first reported by MacRyu many many months ago, will be carrying the 3G iPhone into Singapore, and various other countries through its subsidiaries. According to Italian sources, the 3G iPhone will be available in Italy in June, and thus we should expect Singtel to offer it in the few weeks […]

3G iPhones to be totally unlocked?

Some really interesting news/rumors to report. According to a relatively reliable source, the 3G iPhone might be totally unlocked in all countries, directly in the firmware. There will still be “exclusive carriers” in various countries, but these carriers will essentially be selling unlocked phones which can be used with other GSM carriers as well. This […]
