When you think business, you think ThinkPad. And their X1 series of devices represent some of the best no-frills laptop experiences in the world. This year, Lenovo’s making them even better than before.

Samsung‘s off to a sexy start in 2018 with the launch of a pair of brand new premium mid-range handsets that have a lot of things in common with the company’s flagships, and even improves on some of their weaknesses. They’re called the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ (so it’s more in line with their Galaxy S lineup) and we finally have a launch date for them here in Malaysia.
Hint: It’s next week.
Oh boy. Acer threw down the gauntlet in 2016 when they snatched the crown of world’s thinnest laptop right out of HP’s hands. The original Swift 7 was a stunning 9.98mm thick, making it the first laptop to take things below 1cm. It’s been two years since then and nobody’s been able to beat Acer’s accomplishment.
Left without a contender, Acer decided to take things a step further and outdo themselves. Here’s the world’s thinnest laptop 2.0.
Don’t you just love it when you wake up to a massive security exploit that affects pretty much every device you own that has a processor? If you do, you’re going to love it when you find out that there are actually TWO massive security exploits that affect pretty much every device you own that has a processor.
They’re called Meltdown and Spectre, and here’s what you should know about these vulnerabilities as well as what you can do to keep yourself safe.

UPDATE: Official price and models have been revealed!
UPDATE 2: Lazada has revealed more details for the Surface Laptop pre-order!
After a 2-in-1 tablet, a 2-in-1 convertible, and an all-in-one desktop, Microsoft finally stepped into the realm of bog-standard laptops with the aptly named Surface Laptop. It is a curious device with beautiful but frustrating design choices that was ultimately rather well received.
The most frustrating for us Malaysians though, was the fact that you couldn’t buy one even if you wanted to. Well, that looks like it’s about to change really soon.

The world is coming online and with that, habits are changing, most notably how we purchase goods and services. In the past, you had to crowd with everyone else doing their last minute holiday shopping but now you can get practically everything you need with a few simple taps.
Malaysia’s no different and the meteoric rise of e-commerce is almost scary. But every revolution has its victims and with such a drastic shift in how people discover and purchase goods, some start to wonder what’s going to happen to all the local brick and mortar small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
2017 was an interesting year. It saw manufacturers suddenly develop an allergy to bezels and push harder than ever to find the best way forward for smartphone design. While there were a lot of interesting design iterations, my favourite has always been the “notch”.
The only problem is that smartphones with this particular look are hard for the regular consumer to get a hold of. That is, until now. Until Sharp Mobile Malaysia decided to bring in the Aquos S2, one of the very first smartphones to feature this wrap-around screen design.
Ask anyone who has some experience with searching for the best bang-for-buck smartphone and they’ll probably tell you to avoid big brands when you’re on a tight budget. Stick to something like Xiaomi, for example, and you’re bound to get something that’ll give you way more smartphone for your money.
But that doesn’t stop big brands like Samsung from making entry and mid-range smartphones. And the thing I noticed with something like Samsung’s brand new Galaxy A8 is that they’re getting dangerously good at doing this.

In the past, fast-charging was something you could only find on flagship smartphones. Unless you’re on iPhone, but even Apple’s caught up there too. The beauty of technology is that as time goes on, these “flagship features” start trickling down to the smartphone range.
As more people gain access to handsets that have fast-charging, the demand for fast-charging grows and that’s where third-party accessory makers like Aukey and Anker thrive — what with all the recommendations from popular YouTubers.
Then there’s Tronsmart, which is a brand that doesn’t really get as much coverage as the others do. But, in my experience they make some solid products.
