The skies gave little confidence to our intrepid crew as they set off for the haven. A haven of good coffee and tantalising treats known as Geek Terminal. They arrived to find themselves surrounded by a sea of their friends, lovers, exes and future flames. It was a beautiful sight. Our crew launched into learned discussion, of things Apple, and of the accuracy of the words we’ve already said. We also make a prediction as to the sort of goodies that will be bestowed upon us by good ol’ Santy Claus. Eventually, cake was unleashed on the crowd, and DK broke down and flew. High. As a kite in the sky.2 Comments

It's the first episode of our brand new show: Gear65! Every week, the crew comes together and shows off/talks about/rants about new gadgets in a completely unscripted, 65bits-style.
In this first episode, Daniel, Nicole and DK take a look at the so-expensive-if-you-had-to-ask-how-much-it-costs-you-probably-don't-wanna-know Motorola Aura, as well as Samsung's new Pixon, their latest addition to the 8-megapixel camera phone collection.Posted by Daniel | 8 Comments
SHAMELESS PLUG: The HUNDREDTH episode is coming next week. 27th December 2008 @ 1400. Be there. Or be octagonal.
Whooda’ Thunk it. We’d be reunited as one at the open doors of the home, the crib, the HQ of Tech65. At Jerrick’s home where his mother’s recent return has meant a nicely cleaned home and nicely chilled cola. In the spirit of openness we’re glad to see that many more companies have joined Google’s Open Handset Alliance. We look at various speed limits that graphics card companies and solid state memory companies try to break and also wish a very happy 40th to the mouse. Now don’t you think it’s time you stepped down and let some fresh faced junior take over?
Listen to Me! You have No Time! The 100th. It’s COMING!

In summary, there are 3 aspects of the phone that Sony Ericsson appears to have focused on: The design, which is very beautiful, but does have its flaws, The Xpanel, which after the review, appears to not be what they claimed to be, and the built-in panels are just helping to make that more obvious, but surely better than a standard windows mobile UI. Lastly is the power of the phone, which is no doubt quite powerful.
Creative Commons is finally in Singapore! Woo hoo! Wait, so what’s Creative Commons all about anyway? Sure, lots of us have been declaring our stuff as CC, but do we actually know what’s it for? Good thing we have our resident Professor No Touchy Touchy attempts to explain his understanding of CC to us, and convince the rest of us why CC should be promoted in Singapore, among other local tech news. This week, on 65bits…

This week we discuss Windows 7 with our special guest Vincent, avoiding the biggest question of them all “How is Windows 7, 7??” and the fact that Windows is just getting closer and closer to Mac, which may not necessarily be a bad thing. In other news, just in time for the Holiday season, Singapore Telcos start to out win each other by introducing more and more services, some of which we really have a hard time trying to understand.
In the meantime, have a great week ahead!2 Comments
