Pico projectors are one of those devices that never really caught on to the mainstream. They’re pretty cool and nifty, given the right circumstances, but for most of us, it’s more of a want than a need.
Lenovo recently launched their Pocket Projector here in Malaysia and it’s exactly as the name suggests — a pocket-sized projector. So, if you want/need a pico projector, is this the one you get? Well, I spent a weekend with it high in the mountains to find out.
I love travelling. It’s amazing to be able to see new places and enjoy new experiences. Anyone who says that it’s about the journey, not the destination, has never been on a 15-hour flight with crying babies. To me, it’s about the journey you take once you’ve arrived at the destination. Do you go on your own and take the road less traveled? Or stick to the popular attractions?
The biggest problem I have when travelling, though, is staying connected. While our local telcos are having an all out war in an attempt to come up with the best roaming plans, they’re still teetering on the pricey side. Another option is to pick up a local SIM, but that has its complications too. So what’s left?
Well, the third option is to rent a portable wireless router from someone like Travel Recommends.
I love instant noodles. When I was much younger, instant noodles were a breakfast treat and the mornings where I got to have a packet were the only mornings I would wake up early. The thing is, in the past, I only ever had Cintan’s Perisa Asli noodles and I never thought of trying the other flavours because Perisa Asli was already so good. That was until I tried one of the super spicy kari berapi type noodles. One slurp and I was hooked, I could never go back to good ol’ Perisa Asli.
In a way, this is the same case for me and USB cables. I’ve always only used the USB cables that came out of the box because I figured they’d work the best with their device. I never thought I’d need anything else.
Well, that was until I got my hands on the gold-coated Winnergear MicFlip Fully Reversible MicroUSB cable. A mouthful, but this is essentially the kari berapi of USB cables and it’s awesome.
If I had to identify one other technological trend besides Virtual Reality that would most likely hit big this year, it would be smartwatches. Or smart wearables, whichever you prefer.
For people like us at SoyaCincau.com, smartwatches may not be the “latest” in terms of tech, but for everyone else who doesn’t blow all their money on gadgets, this is a relatively new concept. And oh boy what a concept.
I mean, you have to charge your watch every day?
From a price-to-spec perspective, there is really no justification for the One A9’s absurd price tag. But, I wouldn’t be here if that was the end of the One A9’s discussion.
For the longest time, Xiaomi has been king of the entry-level and affordable market. Their ability to consistently forge great phones and sell them at low prices is nothing short incredible.
In recent months, a demand grew in the entry-to-midrange smartphone market for budget devices with a premium build. Feeling their competitors close in, Xiaomi made a move that shocked many — they introduced the all-metal Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
But, here’s the thing, you don’t have to do that because the Huawei Mate 8 has one big advantage over the competition.
2-in-1s are pretty popular these days because they provide the convenience of a tablet plus the productivity capabilities of a full-fledged laptop. Granted, most of them can’t permanently replace a dedicated laptop or computer, but they’re good enough for work that you can leave your heavy laptop at home and bring a space-aged tablet hybrid around with you.
HP’s Pavilion x2 is one that fits into that hybrid laptop category and I quite like it despite some of its obvious drawbacks.
How do you define perfection?
When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, we were stunned. At first, because it looked so much like their 2015 flagship devices, but later because of how amazing these devices were as smartphones.
It’s difficult to sort the OPPO F1 into a set category. It isn’t the most budget-friendly smartphone, it isn’t the most powerful device, nor is it a great value buy.
So, what is this confused little device from the OPPO?
