Camera gear downgrade?

So recently I wrote about how smartphone cameras are getting so good that, as a casual/enthusiast photographer like me, lugging a separate camera and lens during my travels is no longer an attractive option for me. Smartphone cameras has gotten so good that I feel it is no longer worth the effort in bringing all... Continue Reading →

I got the phone!

I successfully managed to get the iPhone 11 Pro Max on launch day. And it was a harrowing experience!

At that time, I wasn’t thinking about upgrading... Continue Reading →

I did the unthinkable.

At 3.01pm on the 14th of September, I did the unthinkable. I fired up the Apple Store app on my iPhone X and pre-ordered the new iPhone XS Max. For the first time in my life, I blew more than S$2000 on a phone. Call me crazy, and I will agree with you. Why the... Continue Reading →

Introducing the iPhone X

  This is an impulse buy. I do not need this phone. My current iPhone 7 plus served me well for the past year and continued to serve me well till today.

Giving up my iPad mini 4

Almost a year ago I bought an iPad mini 4. I was excited when it came out. I bought the gold, 128 gb model and I used it primarily to read books and magazines while on my long daily commute.  It served me well. It's a great reading companion while in the subway to and... Continue Reading →

American Express is the first credit card company in Singapore to implement Apple Pay.

Digital magazine subscriptions

I have been a National Geographic subscriber for more than a year now. The subscription I am talking about is the digital version of the magazine. It has all the contents of a regular physical magazine, but you read digitally, from your iPad or iPhone. Though you don’t have the physical copy, there are several advantages to subscribing to a digital... Continue Reading →

iPhone, an integral part of my life

Ever since I bought the iPhone 5S, I have been using more apps and on a more frequent basis than ever before. The latest iPhone is snappy. It's fast and the new revamp user interfaces on a variety of apps that I currently use is so much cleaner, and simpler to use. Now, using various... Continue Reading →

My take on the iPhone 5S, TouchID and iOS 7
