Our local taxis are appalling and we all have heard stories of being refused a ride or being taken on one at exorbitant rates. With the introduction of Uber, commuters have been singing praises for its reliable and safe service that’s miles apart from the current transportation offering. While the general public is condemning our failed taxi service, mobile booking service Easy Taxi is doing something rather different.
Acknowledging that change is needed, they have taken some initiatives to fix the problem by rolling out its new “Iconic” Taxi experience and for the first time, a cashless payment system for budget taxis. In phases, Easy Taxi will be investing in a taxi revamp where vehicles will have the iconic New York yellow cab style stickers at the side. Beyond the cosmetic upgrade, drivers will have to undergo training workshops to improve their overall service levels.

Oppo currently has a habit of throwing teasers to the public, especially with their upcoming Oppo N3. With an already confirmed release this October in Singapore, the teasers alone were both impressive and playful. Initially just revealing the metal frames of the device’s body, it had escalated to more leaked images, renders, and basic specs.
Earlier leaks had pointed out that the Oppo N3’s design would be similar to its predecessor, the Oppo N1. The form factor is the same along with the trademark swivelling camera that brought the unbridled joy of a high definition selfie. With these new renders, there’s going to be less guessing and more expecting.

OPPO is in the forefront of rapid smart phone charging with its VOOC Charging technology. While it is fast to charge, the VOOC charger that came with the Oppo Find 7 is quite bulky and the micro USB cable is fixed to the head unit.
Now OPPO has introduced a new VOOC mini charger which not only is smaller but it is also easier to pack thanks to its detachable cable. It is likely to debut with its upcoming OPPO N3 that’s launching on 29th October in Singapore. So far the specs of the VOOC mini charger is still unknown and it could be similar with its original VOOC charger that outputs up to 4.5Amps through its special 7 pin microUSB cable.
If you’re wondering how effective is the VOOC Charger, we had compared the charging times of the OPPO Find 7 versus a Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and a Redmi Note. Check out the comparison video after the break.
UPDATE: More clues point to Apple, but we are not too sure about the 10th October date. Head after the break for the update.
UPDATE 2: Maxis #NextBigThing teaser continues. The upcoming device will be available for online orders.
UPDATE 3: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be officially available in Malaysia on 7th November.

GoPro, the maker of versatile action cameras has just unveiled its latest line up with 3 new models. Leading the pack is its new Hero4 which now shoots in UHD 4K resolution that’s available in Hero4 Black and Hero4 Silver variants. To bring GoPro action at lower price points, they have introduced the “Hero”, its basic offering that’s priced at just US$129.99 (about RM423). This slots right below its current Hero3 White camera.
The cream of the crop Hero4 Black promises twice the performance of its former model which now shoots 4K videos at 30fps and Full HD 1080p videos at 120fps. Going down a notch is the Hero4 Silver which also shoots 4K videos but at a lower 15fps. However it still shoots 2.7K videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 60fps.
