I have a problem. It’s an incredibly first-world problem, because it’s one where no amount of gear is ever “enough”. Literally the week after I ordered my brand new Audio Technica ATH-M40X, I was already scouring the internet for a brand new pair of wireless headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC).
And it’s not like I’m some big audiophile. My ears are decidedly plebian in the sense that I know what I like and I know what I don’t — there isn’t really a super deep spectrum. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop me from wanting to get the best ones there are.
After weeks of reading, listening and researching, I managed to narrow down the list to a few prime candidates. Sony’s original MDR-1000X headphones were not at the top of the list. Then, everything changed when I got a hold of the WH-1000XM2.

If you’ve used an Android smartphone for at least 6 years, you’ve probably used Swype as your default keyboard. Instead of tapping individual keys with your fingers, Swype allows you to type faster by swiping through your letters on the screen. It’s so fast that it has broken a couple of records including a Guinness World Record.
Unfortunately, the custom keyboard’s days are numbered as the development of Swype has ended in order to focus on their AI solutions.
A few days ago, a bug involving an Indian Telugu character was found to cause some serious problems for Apple users. It seems that iOS, watchOS and even macOS devices have trouble rendering this character and it causes the respective apps to crash.
It’s a critical bug since anyone with ill-intentions can send you a text with this character and you won’t be able to open your messaging app again as long as the character continues to be displayed. This even affects Facebook, Twitter and on any social platform that allows anyone to post this problematic character.
Due to the severity of this bug, Apple has finally released a fix and it’s available now to all iOS users with iOS 11.2.6.
2018 has only just started but we’re already hearing rumours about the next version of Android, Android P. After relatively light modifications to the overall look of the OS from Android Marshmallow to Oreo, it appears Google is ready for a redesign.
How flashy will it be? We don’t know, but apparently it’s going to be notch-friendly.
As more people come online, dangers of being online, and the dangers of being attacked by someone you don’t even know from a country you’ve never even heard of become more apparent. It then becomes paramount for tech giants like Google — on which a lot of us have most of our lives stored — to push for a safer internet environment.
However, the security that they implement can only do so much if you don’t take this seriously too. So, here are 5 tips Google’s shared to help you stay just that little bit safer when you’re browsing online.
Apple will be adding a new feature on iOS 11.3 which will provide iPhone users with some form of visibility of their battery’s health. On top of that, users with iPhone slowdowns will be given the choice to disable throttling so that they can run their iPhone at maximum performance. This comes after Apple had admitted to managing the performance of its older iPhones to prevent sudden shutdowns.
If you’re wondering how all this would look like, Apple has released a couple of screenshots and details of its new Battery Health feature for the next iOS release.
While Android has come a long way since the dark days and has matured into a really awesome mobile operating system, there’s one area where it simply can’t hold a candle to its rival, Apple’s iOS: Rate of adoption. About half a year after its launch, Android Oreo is still only on just over 1% of all Android devices.
With price starting at USD$999 or RM5,149 in Malaysia, the iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone yet. In the last quarter, Apple had managed to sell slightly over 1 million more iPhones year on year and there were reports that most of these sales are coming from their older iPhone models that were offered at a discount.
The iPhone 8/8 Plus duo had gone on sale at the end of September, while the iPhone X only hit the market in the first week of November. Despite recent reports that the iPhone X isn’t doing well, Apple had recorded their highest revenue yet for their fiscal 2018 first quarter.
Chinese New Year is just two weeks away and Apple has just released a touching short film that’s shot on the iPhone X. Titled three minutes, it tells a story about a family reunion that could only last for 3 minutes.
If there’s one thing Malaysians love as much telling other people that Malaysia has great food, it’s football. This sport where a bunch of people chase a ball around a green field and occasionally kick it past someone into a net has something magical that just draws us to it.
If you’re one of the many die-hard football fans in Malaysia, today I shall be the bearer of good news because soon you’ll be able to watch live matches pretty much anywhere you have an internet connection thanks to iflix.
