For those of us outside China, Hugo Barra is pretty much the face of Xiaomi. He’s there for the launches, he’s there for keynotes and he was also there to show us how to ride the Ninebot Mini up an escalator.
But now, the Mi Fans’ beloved Tiger Bro will be leaving Xiaomi to return home to Silicon Valley.
I love thin, light and affordable laptops that are designed for work on the go. For me, all they need to do is handle word processing, web browsing, some rudimentary photo editing and that’s about it. Oh yeah, they should also have a long battery life, at least enough to last a working day, anyway.
The last time I checked out a laptop from Acer, it was their then brand new Aspire S 13 — a thin and light no-nonsense productivity laptop. It had a lot going for it, with a nice set of I/O ports and a nice matte display. But, there were one or two issues such as the mediocre battery life and the mostly plastic body.
Now, they’ve refreshed their laptop lineup with several new devices from Acer’s Spin and Swift series. One laptop that stood out to me as an interesting alternative to the Aspire S 13 was the Swift 3. MacBook-esque looks aside, it bears a lot of similarities with the S 13, but with a few new features and compromises. So I thought it’d be interesting to see if it’s worth the RM100 premium.
As more manufacturers jump on the dual back camera train, it was really only a matter of time before we saw manufacturers start moving towards a dual front camera setup too.
Both LG and Lenovo did it. And now, with the launch of the Vivo V5Plus, we have yet another dual selfie camera smartphone in Malaysia.
I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a camera since the day I got my hands on my Fujifilm X100S. For the longest time, I was eyeing its interchangeable lens brother, the X-T10, but now I think I’ve found the camera I truly want.
It’s Fujifilm’s brand new X-T20 and it looks amazing. TL;DR? It’s probably going to make a lot of X-T2 users feel a tad annoyed.
Samsung has always been very proud of their Quantum Dot display technology and for good reason — the panels do look awesome. In the past, this technology has been limited to the company’s television screens — notably their flagship TVs — but now they’re also bringing that technology into their monitors.
Meet the Samsung CFG70, the company’s first Quantum Dot curved monitor targetted at gamers. First impressions? It’s got a lot going for it.
Remember the internet speed upgrade UniFi subscribers were set to receive come 2017? After a period of silence, we finally get our first solid lead on this as TM is now letting existing UniFi subscribers to check if they are eligible for the speed upgrade or not.
If you’ve been on Facebook recently, you’ve probably seen a post of an infographic that was published in a local daily about electronic pick-pocketing. The infographic suggests that criminals can use smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices to steal card information, at times, without you even knowing it. Then, they can use that information to make transactions “without authorisation” as well as “clone cards”.
Well, we did some digging and here are 5 reasons why that’s simply untrue.
Acer Malaysia launched three brand new monitors today. Two of them are targetted at gamers and come with G-Sync and Free Sync. The third, however, is perhaps even more interesting as it’s a 4K UHD 43-inch monitor that’s priced at RM2,299.
Have you ever wanted to Google something only to find out that you don’t have an internet connection? Then, in a huff, you keep your phone back in your pocket and forget all about what you wanted to Google in the first place.
Well, if that’s ever happened to you, the good news is that it’s not going to happen again because Google’s Search will now work offline.
This is it! We’ve got another brand new Xiaomi budget device to kick off 2017 and this is the most affordable smartphone the company has on sale in Malaysia today. Yep, it’s their new Redmi 4A and here’s how you can get your hands on one.
