It looks like the recent typhoons around Hong Kong have caused some serious damage to several undersea cables. These submarine cables (ASE, AAG, TGA-IA, SMW3) connect South East Asia to the United States. This is not the first time we have a submarine cable fault in our region but this time it isn’t as bad as before.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is an expensive device. But, as the saying goes, if you can do something, someone else could probably do it better. And as far as pricing for the top-of-the-line smartphones is concerned, it looks like Apple is once again going to one up Samsung for their upcoming iPhone 8.
You may have heard of Huawei‘s latest teaser where they posted an image with the hashtag #OOOO right in the center. We speculated about what that could mean but today, today we found out something even more interesting.
All caught up on the Samsung Galaxy Note8 launch? No? Well, check out our announcement post, our hands-on and the 8 big new features on the Galaxy Note8.

They call us the Selfie Generation and I’d love to say no, but everywhere I look, all I see are people taking selfies. So I guess it’s not that surprising that smartphone manufacturers these days are doing everything they can to capitalise on this psychological need that has ingrained itself into this generation’s mind.
OK, maybe psychological need was a little melodramatic, but the fact remains that companies like vivo are launching way more selfie-centric devices than probably anyone saw coming…and people are buying them by the bucketload. In any case, if you’ve ever been someone who wants to get their hands on one of vivo’s ‘Perfect Selfie’ V5s and V5 Plus handsets, this may be the best way to do so.
The launch of (probably) the most anticipated Android smartphone yet is just around the corner. Samsung’s Galaxy Note8 has a lot riding on its shoulders after the disaster that was its predecessor, and from the looks of things, is poised to deliver a truly stunning flagship smartphone experience.
However, all that high-end technowizardry will obviously come with a price and if this latest leak is to be believed, that price tag will be pretty high. Read the rest of this entry »
