The Tech65 crew goes down to Geek Terminal to check out the launch of Creative’s brand new media player, the Zen. Eugene, the product presenter at the event, shows us more about the Zen before the crew discusses the Zen in detail.3 Comments
We were told a while back that they’re gonna be launching a new product today at Geek Terminal, so we’re right here hoping that they’ll let us crash the party. What do you think? Will they let us?
We’re gonna keep updating this page, so keep refreshing this page for more.
8:51 AM Turns out that the product is all over the internet already.
All Jerrickees out there, fret ye not! The full cast of 65bits (or Tech65, potayto potahto) will return next week! But meanwhile, we bring you great tidings of Red Hat on Singapore Airlines! A Sony cell phone battery factory in Singapore! New vacuumbot models! And… possibly the new iPod designs? Will Apple destroy the iPod heritage or do they have more birds and rabbits up their sleeves?
And then of course there are the not-that-great tidings too. Find that out in this week’s episode, Somewhere to Govern.
Danis, Farinutty, and NoTuTu
The video all mac-fanboys have been waiting for, the unboxing of the new 20-inch metal Apple iMac. Daniel receives his iMac by mail a week earlier than promised, and unboxes it in front of 2 cameras as he goes through the contents of the box, as well as taking a first look at the iMac as well as the slim keyboards.
Note: In order to create the whole unboxing home video experience, this video has been left as unedited as possible.Posted by Daniel | 13 Comments
It’s that time of the week again! The Tech65 gang is down to 3 now. Will they survive this week of tech? Will they be able to resist the Geek Terminal coffee? Will the Ultra Mobile PC finally succeed? Will Skype, Nintendo Wii and Nokia survive from the hands of the Evil ProblemMan and his sidekick, BadPress Boy? And most importantly… Will Jerrick buy us all new iMacs?
All this and more, in this episode of “The Attack of the 65 bits!”

This episode of 65Bits is dedicated to all the sleep that was lost on the night of 7th of August, by the millions of Apple fans around the world. We would also like to remember the bytes that were lost in the numerous Refreshes of Engadget’s page during Apple’s Press Conference
You have done us great service and we will remember the sacrifice that all that oil and coal was burnt for your existance, all the nanoparticles of fibre optic cable you worn down, but mostly we will remember that your service benefited mankind, that the war was not fought in vain, that eventually the war on Terror will be won, and we will stay the course, and find the nu-cul-ar bombs. Did we get carried away Mr. Clump of Shrubs with stems of Moderate length?

In this episode of Channel65, Daniel shows Jerrick how to create an extended desktop in Windows, and how to make use of it in Powerpoint.No comments
It’s Singapore’s birthday this week! And the Tech65 crew go full on Nationalistic with Local Products! Starhub’s new MaxMobile 3.5G network features high on our list instead of Google’s cell phone project, Starhub’s Hubstation all-in-one Digital Video Recorder (DVR) gets us hot and bothered unlike Sony’s possible addition of a DVR and TV tuner in the PS3, and Creative’s new 16GB Zen V Plus instead of Apple’s new product launch next Tuesday! (Ed [Jerrick]: Really?)
Your fellow Singaporeans,
Star One, Star Two, Crescent, Star Three, Star Four… Wait.
In this second episode of Channel 65, Daniel shows us the official Yahoo, Google and Windows Live applications for mobile phones that lets you get your favourite Internet services on the go.
The Tech65 crew was over at the Singtel Hot Sale convention over at Suntec City’s convention hall 404 to check out the mioTV after noticing the Microsoft Mediaroom logo at the corner of one of it’s broshures. Unfortunately, due to the fact that their people were too busy, we did not get a chance to report it live with Channel65.
My take on this whole deal though is going to be in specialty which is the softer side of things. And thus we look at all the other wonderful things that differentiates this service from Starhub’s current cable service.
For those of you who do not already subscribe to Starhub’s cable TV service, here’s a quick update. Starhub has had the monopoly over premium television service and has been able to implement their own plans and lock its users into plans that guaranteed revenue. Most importantly of course, they also had all the important majors under their belt. Football games were only to be broadcast by its own channels, CNN could only be obtained by users of Starhub’s cable service. Singtel’s entry into this segment is much welcome as it gives the average consumer choice and introduces competition that allows for companies to attempt to compete on different price points, for different consumers.
However lets talk about the service itself. Its based on Microsoft’s Mediaroom technology and is only one of two companies to use this particular set of technology. Now what does this mean for the average consumer, it means coherence, it means consistency and it also means wide support *hopefully*. But having a big company like Microsoft backing your tech is never a bad thing to have. MioTV is quite good in that respect in that it seems quite polished a user interface and the sheer fountain of features that come out of the box. First of all, HD straight out of the box without any additional fee or otherwise, a DVR out of the box, and lots of on demand movies for your viewing pleasure.
However there is one major problem at this stage with Singtel’s MioTV service and that is simply a lack of available content for the consumer to subscribe to. And this can only be remedied by judicious courting by Singtel at the end of Starhub’s contracts with any content provider in Singapore. We look forward enthusiastically to the possiblities in the emergance of competition between these two bigwigs in Singaporean content provision!Posted by Jerrick | No comments
