Last night the Tech65 Crew and iMerlion.com came together and discussed some information that Singaporeans who are looking into purchasing the iPhone 4 tomorrow evening might be interested to know. We also tackled some frequently asked questions that were posed at the iMerlion iPhone 4 spreadsheet.
Special thanks to Jimmy Yap, editor at iMerlion.com, for his time and insight in this episode!Posted by Daniel | 1 Comment
Yesterday was probably one of the biggest days in gaming this year. StarCraft 2 went on sale all over the world, and we were there at the launch event in Funan. What you might not know is how long the queues were! In typical Singaporean fashion, tons of people queued up for hours just to get their hands on a copy of StarCraft 2. We were also told that the first guy began queuing since 11am the day before! We don’t know exact how many people were in the queue but I’m very sure there were at least a few thousand.Posted by Daniel | 1 Comment
Ever since we posted up our Samsung Galaxy Beam unboxing video, many people have pushed us to post up our Gear65 video for this phone. So much so that we’ve decided to change our programme sequence just for you! So what’s so special about this phone that everyone wants to know more about? Well, it’s the first smartphone (Android or not) with a built-in DLP projector!

This is Fresh, the show where you get the freshest take on gadgets in Singapore! While Gear65 lets you have a close look at gadgets you love to play with, Fresh gives you our take on the experience the gadgets have given us so far.
In our first episode, we talk about Sony Ericsson’s latest line-up of smartphones, and their first attempt into the Android space.
Just like Simply Geek, do give us your feedback. For a start we are aware of 2 issues: the length (as usual) and the Skype audio quality. We aim to solve these two together, as the audio quality goes down with time (we blame Starhub for that, which has given us problems with Skype consistently). Our target is to keep the show less than 20 minutes, and based on this show, which tackled 4 gadgets, we think it is possible if we don’t talk about more than 1 gadget per episode. This would also make each episode more focused as well.
But do send us your feedback. Fresh at Tech65 dot org is the show’s dedicated email address.

It was the iPhone 4 launch week in US when we recorded this. Yes, the hamster is still trying to catch up with all the backlogs. The crew discuss about all the iPhone 4 bugs reports. We also celebrate the end of Symbian on all Nokia N series phone. Moving forward, all Nokia N series will run MeeGo. Symbian lovers can still buy E or X series phones. More people leaving Palm and why we are not really surprised. Adobe Flash is now on Android…. or is it?
Oh, if you are on HTC Hero, you should have gotten your Eclair 2.1 update by now.

It WAS the E3 week when we did the recording. But as you know, this another one of those delayed posting. The hamster have lots of catching up to do. Anyway, we discussed about the 3 big announcement from E3 THAT week. Nintendo showing off their Nintento 3DS which is a portable 3D handheld gaming device. Sony gave us more details on their upcoming Playstation Move. The most exciting news would be Microsoft Kinect which is formally called Project Natal. We also talk about how Apple changes their iOS SDK terms to allow Lua but still no Adobe Flash. And back to Singapore, the Government is planning on giving everyone an email account. So exciting.

[34:50] Bonus Material: A day with Justin Lee.
Maybe I should explain how this bonus material come about. As you all know, here at Tech65, we review lots of gadget. And since there are so many members, we usually pass the review unit around among the members so that those who are interested can get a few days of hands on. So what happen was that I passed Justin an Android phone after I’m done with my review. But I forgot to log out of my Google Latitude before passing the phone to him. And since I have my Google Latitude History enabled, I got a record of Justin’s whereabout for a day. Wahahahahaha……Posted by Justin Lee | No comments
Creative has finally begun shipping the D100 after its launch a month ago. It’s a very simple speaker but it’s always good to take a look at what it’s capable of. This pair of wireless speakers can be used as a desktop speaker or a portable speaker, and pairs with any Bluetooth A2DP device, as you can see in this episode.
