That’s it, David has struck out at Goliath, setting into motion what looks to be either an epic advertising war or a very expensive lawsuit. What are we talking about? Well, the folks at OnePlus have decided it was a good idea to poke the metaphorical bear that is Apple, with their latest advert for an iPhone 6/6s Sandstone back case.
Mmm, we love the smell of napalm in the morning.
The BlackBerry PRIV has started rolling out internationally and those in Singapore will be getting it sometime next week. This is the BlackBerry’s first flagship to run on Android and it comes with its BlackBerry Torch-like slider keyboard. Available in retail stores and telcos from 12th December, the PRIV is priced at S$1,098 which converts to RM3,296. That’s slightly more than the Galaxy Note5 which was launched in the island state at S$1,088.
All hail the existence of grey importers, allowing early adopters everywhere to get their hands on devices not readily available in their country of purchase. DirectD is a household name in our country and despite setting abhorrent prices on some of their inventory.
Xiaomi’s second iteration of a tablet, the Mi Pad 2, meets the list and now has an all metal body – easily comparable to the iPad Mini 4.

Autonomous driving is here and it’ll be here to stay, albeit some less than stellar feedback from car enthusiast. We’d still think that driving an automobile is an experience best felt by being fully in control but they’re obviously perks to being able to have the ability to control your vehicle autonomously or through a remote.
In the world of television, spin-offs are a common sight as many networks try their hardest to keep that rare gem of a tv show alive. I completely understand this desire to milk every last drop out of your prized cow simply because money is hard to make in this world where piracy is rampant.
Generally, many of these spin-offs tend to fall flat and the way I see it, there are two big reasons why this happens. The first is that the show doesn’t live up to the hype. It’s hard to follow in the footsteps of something as big as, say, Friends for example (we’re looking at you Joey). Secondly, it doesn’t eventually break off from the original and find and identity of its own, or that special niche that makes a show special.
In the world of smartphones, it seems, that there exists this same desire to spin off into various other versions of an OEM’s flagship or popular device.
A few days ago, U Mobile claims the title of Malaysia’s Fastest Mobile Network as awarded by Ookla’s Speedtest.net. As a gesture of appreciation to its subscribers, they are giving out 1GB of free data for the month of December.

Chinese manufacturers have been busy of late, creating phones that easily rival known brands. Making inlays into the higher-end market by imploring classier materials like metal, as seen by Huawei and Xiaomi, Vivo hasn’t been left in the dust, releasing the X6 and X6 Plus in light of the current trend. Specs are king though the new duo might have something to say about that, taking a look under their hoods.
