Touch N Go is easily one of the most used cashless payment systems in the country. With its widespread adoption in toll booths, public transports and selected merchants, it’s really hard to escape using it. And it’s a convenient service…for the most part.
Now, the company has begun beta testing their brand new ‘cashless’ mobile payment system, Touch N Go Wallet. The only problem is that I don’t think they fully grasped what made TNG convenient in the first place. Why? Well, this new mobile system uses QR codes and PIN numbers instead of NFC.
Lenovo is trying to get more people to develop Moto Mods for its modular Moto Z family. Now here’s an interesting crowd-funded Moto Mod that lets you stay connected even without mobile or WiFi coverage. Introducing LINC, a walkie-talkie add-on which you can attach to your existing Moto Z and Moto Z Play.
“Is the WiFi working?” That’s a question that gets asked a lot in the SoyaCincau headquarters. Most of the time, it’s met with a resounding groan and a big no. When you’re in a profession that needs a steady internet connection like we do, having your router go down more often than you take meal breaks is just plain frustrating.
So, we put our heads together and after some investigation, we deduced that our poor little sub-RM300 router simply couldn’t handle the load we put it under. So, that got us thinking: Is investing more money in an expensive router actually worth it? To find out, we reached out to TP-Link and asked if they could let us review one of their new routers. They responded by sending us the Archer AC3150 Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit router.
Yup, that’s a thousand ringgit router. Here’s what we think of it.
The Consumer Electronics Show is a big deal. It’s a show where a lot of really cool stuff gets showcased by all kinds of companies — big and small. But, not everything that gets showcased there will make it to our region.
That’s why Samsung‘s decided to host what I’d like to call a mini-CES here in the Southeast Asian region — only it’s all Samsung products, obviously. It’s called the Samsung Southeast Asia and Oceanic Forum and this year, they’ve got quite a few interesting things to showcase — most of which can be controlled by Samsung’s Smart Home app..
Grab has just launched GrabShare, a new ride sharing service in Malaysia that aims to be a smarter way to travel. It’s a carpooling service which allows you to share your ride with someone else.

Grab is countering Uber’s RM0.99 offer with an even better deal. Now everyone can enjoy free Grab rides for short trips from now until 28 February 2017.
If you think about driving into KL on a busy weekday, you probably expect crazy jams and the hassle of looking for parking. Instead of driving, why not take an Uber instead? For two weeks, Uber is offering flat-rate 99 sen rides for short trips within the Klang Valley.
This afternoon the folks from Grab had sent us something out of the ordinary. It’s a monster-sized cookie packed in a typical pizza box.
Hearing loss is a problem that affects a whole lot of people worldwide and the worst part is many often don’t know that they have hearing loss until it’s too late. Well, if you’ve ever been curious, hearing solutions company Cochlear has come up with a short film to help you find out.
As more things begin to come online, the risk of having your personal information collected without you knowing also increases and these dangers are very real. So real, in fact, that Smart TV maker Vizio was just fined USD2.2 million (around RM9.8 million) for connecting viewer information on a second-by-second basis without consent.
