65Bits Episode 112: The Quietest Cafe in Singapore

In the continuation of tech news draught that seems to be happening more often this year, we find ourselves sitting at the location where we recorded our very first out-door 65bits (How did we ever manage to talk for less than twenty minutes back then!?).

In summary, Fujitsu has a new service centre, HP has a new budget ultra portable, Singapore has a new rank to show-off, Windows has a new ad and Farinelli has a new feature in Gmail he totally should start using.

A great time to just talk about stuff that isn’t news?

  • I really couldn’t replicate your smooth Bluetooth experience with Vista. Perhaps it’s just that you have an older phone whose drivers are included in Vista. I’m using a Nokia E51 on an updated Vista box (SP1 + further patches). But I guess that is the story with drivers on a whole. If you have them everything works hunky dory, otherwise good luck to you

Daniel Tsou is our fabulous host, who decides mostly what we talk about and basically calls the shots, Yes, he does. I, writer of this bio on Mr Tsou is very much afraid that by commiting this post to words, I will be dragged off in the night by a black Truck, or a Segway more like. Other than that, Daniel is tall, lived for a period of time in Venezuela and Spain, and is enthusiastic for all things tech.
