Gear65 #38 – INQ Mini 3G Posted on: September 30, 2009 at 9:14 pm Posted in: Gear65,VideoCasts

After getting busy with product launches the past two weeks, we’re finally back to our usual program line-up! This week we finally get to take a look at the INQ Mini 3G, one of the phones with the best Facebook integration we’ve seen so far on a feature phone! There’s so much to talk about this phone that we’ve made this into a two-parter.

As a smartphone, I wouldn’t consider buying this device. But non-smartphone users will definitely love it, especially since it’s $0 with a contract! In fact, I’ve let some non-geeks play with it, and they really loved it.

Well, this is the 2nd part from our long digression in Episode 3, where we continue to talk about the Singapore Flyer, Social Media Breakfast, McDonalds, Starwars, and just crazy random talk. Do note that there is a disclaimer. We are not responsible for any words we say in this episode. We have gone past the threshold of reason and just pure blabbering.

Enjoy this… very weird digression.

Review: Olympus Pen E-P1 Posted on: September 28, 2009 at 12:30 pm Posted in: Reviews,Still Cameras

The Pen E-P1 is the latest camera to be heralded from Olympus, sporting the microfourthirds format, which gives SLR quality performance, in terms of photographic quality, even in low lighting conditions.

Olympus created the Pen to go without mirrors and non-reflex lens; two components which are the hallmarks of the SLR cameras, film & digital, without sacrificing much of the handling and versatility, users have come to expect from any companies claiming the SLR compliance.

DigressCast Episode 3: Back after a break Posted on: September 24, 2009 at 11:30 am Posted in: DigressCast,Podcasts

Now that DK is back from reservist, finally, and I’m off duty from producing 65bits, we’re back again with the next episode of DigressCast. This DigressCast Episode is a little special. To make up for the loss of episodes while DK was on reservist, we did 3 episodes of DigressCast almost back to back. Alright then, without letting you wait further, our latest digression. Seriously, I have no idea how to write any show notes because we kept jumping from topics to topics and back again.

So sit back, and enjoy.

DK, Justin
