Switcher’s guide: iPhone to Android

July 23, 2010 2 comments

Hi faithful readers, just a quick note to let you know I’m still well and alive although I must apologize for the very long time away from updating with new posts. 2 major reasons for my disappearance: 1) HTC taking ages to release 2.1 for HTC Hero (hence I got pissed and neglected my HTC) and 2) I bought a new Blackberry Bold 2 and have been using it. But not to worry, both system have their hits and misses, and I will continue to update.

Today’s update is not an original post that I wrote up but nonetheless a good one. It’s a switcher’s guide from iPhone to Android. Hold the gasping but yes, there are people deflecting from the Apple camp to Android. While it is not a contest of fanboyism, I see it as a good thing since these people will be exposed to both OS and as consumers, would be able to come up with good feedback for companies to bring their game to a higher level.

This article can be found on LifeHacker (I adore this site) and without further blabbing, here you go.

App Talk: Quick Settings

March 8, 2010 2 comments

If you’re sick of going into layers and layers of navigation just to turn on your data, or just had enough of using 4 different apps to control 4 different settings, Quick Settings is for you.

Quick Settings is the swiss knife equivalent in terms of apps to do with settings. It allows users to quickly toggle between a list of settings with less than 2 swipes once set up. Let’s take an in-depth look.

Motorola Dext released in Singapore

January 25, 2010 1 comment

Well it took some time but the Motorola Dext has finally reached our sunny shores, oddly without any trace of the Motorola Milestone yet.

I foresee that this phone will be able to attract the younger crowd seeking to stand out from the Blackberries and Apple iPhones. The physical qwerty keyboard also helps to give the phone a Sidekick feel.

Well I would have bought this phone if I have cash to spare and if I did not bear any hopes for Milestone. But it’s not top secret that the Milestone is set to be released sometime in March by Starhub. And I am also waiting for the fabled Nexus 2 that comes with a physical keyboard. Read more…

As you all know, Haiti has been hit with disaster and things are not going so well there. World wide aid has been pouring in but we can always do more. Please put your Nexus Ones, Heroes, Droids, Dreams, Magics and what have you to good use and donate towards the relief fund. All your donations, big and small, will help Haiti to get back on their feet.

Help Haiti!

Thank you.

F is for Froyo!

January 18, 2010 Leave a comment

Well Google has done it again! Deviating from the usual pastry code name, we’re getting Froyo (frozen yoghurt) in place of Flan! But you know what? I don’t really care what it’s called, I just want my goddamned update. Hurry up HTC! Or I’m gonna go Droid.
