Singapore isn’t very good at naming things, and this week’s episode is dedicated to one such thing: the budget terminal aptly named “The Budget Terminal”. So in honour of that, this week’s episode shall be called… The 129th Episode. On this creatively named episode we share with you Starhub’s contractless pre-paid mobile broadband, Windows 7 RTMing, a new netbook OS, Twitter killing spammers and Facebook relenting the vanity URL policy, by a bit… And finally, iPhone and iPod Touch users can finally stalk and be stalked!

How to turn off Omnia II TouchWiz interface? Posted on: July 28, 2009 at 5:31 pm Posted in: Gear65 Plus,VideoCasts

I have totally no idea why anyone would want to turn off the TouchWiz 2.0 interface on Samsung Omnia II. It’s a great interface that makes the Window Mobile less painful to use. OK, I may be bias since I’m not a fan of the original Window Mobile interface. But I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person in this world. I’m sure there are a lot of people who hate the original Window Mobile interface. Else why all the phone makers are making their own interface on top of Windows Mobile?

Anyway, if you really really really for any reason what to unload the TouchWiz 2.0 user interface on the Samsung Omnia 2, here is a great video by Daniel. I supposed it should work almost the same for all TouchWiz 2.0 interface.

Seriously, you sure you really want to turn off TouchWiz 2.0?

Gear65 #31 – Samsung Lapfit + Samsung 107H photo frame Posted on: July 24, 2009 at 12:51 am Posted in: Gear65,VideoCasts

We don't usually review LCD monitors and digital photo frames on Gear65 but we're doing it for these two models by Samsung, the Samsung Lapfit LCD monitor and the Samsung 107H digital photo frame because they're not usual for their category. They're both designed to be used as a secondary display, for example, with the Lapfit designed specifically with a notebook in mind, and can both do it with a USB cable instead of a VGA cable!

65bits Episode 128: Patching Human Stupidity Posted on: July 20, 2009 at 9:28 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

A late zombie and sour coffee is in some ways (some very vague ways) a great day to start a Saturday morning, and in this episode we have long time friend of Tech65 Justin Lee join us in an all-Microsoft episode (almost all, you know there are always brief references to Mac and our BotW isn’t exclusively Windows although I’m sure its grand-daddy is hosted… but enough airtime has been spent on MS to warrant that label okay?).

Alright seriously, don’t read so much, just listen. Links after the break.

From Highlander Coffee with love (platonic)

Not before we talk about Steve Job’s return, the trademarking of the Tweet, and how the Amazon Kindle and the Palm Pre might just be that much closer to Singapore!

Lenovo upgraded their netbook, the S10, with the brand new S10-2. So what’s been upgraded? How about a sleeker design and Quickstart, a special boot mode that let’s you access the web browser in ten seconds? Is that enough for it to stand out from the crowd? Find out this week on Gear65.
