After close to a month, the new NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 is still nowhere to be found. It is as scarce and rare as ever. I have not been successful in getting my hands on one of these things as the demand is just astronomical. I am a little bit disappointed at not being able... Continue Reading →
PC upgrade Phase I complete
Today, with help from a friend, we completed the phase I of my PC upgrade. That involves swapping out the old, 650W PSU from Corsair to a 1000W PSU from Seasonic. I bought the new PSU from PC Theme, in Sim Lim Square last week. I upgraded my PSU so that my PC is ready... Continue Reading →

The biggest announcement by Nvidia is just around the corner (tomorrow in fact as of this writing) and it is without any surprise that they are going to announce a whole new lineup of GPUs based on the 7nm Ampere architecture that we have all been patiently waiting for. It will come as no surprise... Continue Reading →
Bought a gold Macbook Air for dad
Today I went to Best Denki to buy a brand new Macbook Air for my dad. It’s the base model, gold version that I bought for him. Initially we wanted to head down to the Apple Store to get it, but was informed upon arrival that their walk-in appointment slots were already full. The walk-in... Continue Reading →

I cancelled my Apple Watch series 5 pre-order.
Yes you read that right. With less than a week to go before the official launch of the new series 5 Apple Watches, I decided to cancel my pre-order from the online store. Somehow I have gone cold turkey to the whole idea of upgrading my Apple Watch. At first, it seemed like a sensible... Continue Reading →
Upgraded (again!) my Octavius Maximus build
This time its an NVME SSD from Silicon Power. I was browsing and doing some online shopping on Amazon when I stumbled upon the SSD. It was on sale, selling at less than $150 for an NVME PCIe Gen 3 X4 SSD with a 1TB capacity. SSD storage have gone really cheap recently, and I... Continue Reading →
The force is strong in AMD
If I remember correctly, I impose a moratorium on myself with regards to gaming PC upgrades. Last year, I upgraded my PC by getting a new case to fit a new motherboard and CPU. That CPU is the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. It is a beastly 8-core, 16-thread CPU. I love it to death. I... Continue Reading →
PC upgrade moratorium (New Year Resolutions 2019)
This self imposed ban on PC upgrades for 2019 is going to be a tough one to uphold. The details on the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 series of CPU is still sparse and it is hard to separate fact from rumours. But if rumours are true, we might see a 16 core, 32 thread CPU... Continue Reading →
Moratorium on PC upgrades for 2017.
As 2016 comes to a close, I am in the process of writing up my new year resolutions for 2017. One of the goals involved meeting my financial goals for next year. I am going to list two main financial goals, one of which is a milestone goal, meaning that if I achieve my first... Continue Reading →
OS X 10.9 Mavericks for free?!
As I watched the Apple keynote live last night, there was only one thing that I was interested in. It was the new operating system for the Mac hardware, OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Introduced during the summer with a Fall release schedule, the keynote highlighted some of the neat features that comes with Mavericks. Towards... Continue Reading →
OS X Lion: July
The recent WWDC has lead to a major announcement of Apple's latest OS X Lion. It will be coming out in July for just USD 29. A jawdropping, hard to beat price that certainly sent some shockwaves within the Apple community and fans alike. During the press conference, it certainly had my jaw dropped when... Continue Reading →
