Long Hiatus and some updates

Sorry for the long hiatus. There really hasn’t been much news-worthy Mac news to report, and I am also currently working on a new project that I hope will be ready soon.

On the international front, more news about our favorite Jesus phone. Besides the obvious Singtel news flooding the international Mac news headlines a while back, the latest news have been about the 3G iPhone. Speculation have been rife about Hon Hai, Apple’s biggest manufacturing partner, getting the contract to build the 3G iPhone. The second coming of the Jesus phone is expected in the 2nd half of 2008.

Great news, which I believed helped the stock price quite a bit. ^_^

Local front, really nothing much to report, or anything that I know of. The only significant event happening in April will be the submission of bids for the NUS/NTU Mac tender, which, as usual, I would not be surprised if the same people won.

One general comment though, about the current tender (which will expire in June 2008), no one really wants to buy a MacBook White priced at 2.7K SGD bundled with expensive software that most students either do not use, or if they do, will just pirate the damn thing. These are poor students you are talking about, and face it, most students are not going to pay 300 SGD for Microsoft Office for Mac.

And do not forget to include the Air in the bid. Or seriously the Mac tender this year will just be a big April’s Fool joke.
