Now, you may have heard that, starting next year, coding will be part of the national school syllabus. Reception has been mixed, with many asking questions like “what will they be coding on?” and “who is going to pay for the computers?” as well as my favourite, “who’s going to teach these kids to code?”.
It’s amazing how we’ve been independent for nearly sixty years, yet we still have so much British pessimism in us.
Going through life alone is never ideal and you’re most likely to enjoy it better when surrounded by friends. LG knows this and wants to metaphorically do the same for its flagship smartphone. Google tried and are still toying around with modular parts through their Project Ara program and there’s even a smartphone case that lets you do the same.
LG believes that we’re still yet to reach “peak smartphone” and whilst moving forward, modules and add-on peripherals are the paths to take. The idea is exciting and being the first to take it on is a big deal but if others follow suit and do better, trouble might loom.

Our love of robots has best been displayed throughout the films and TV shows that have captured our hearts. Be it scary or adorable, we’ve come to know that they play an integral role despite not actually “being” human.
Across our screens, we’ve seen lovable and iconic characters like WALL-E, Iron Giant, C-3PO, R2-D2 and most recently, BB-8. Though advancements in technology as finally gifted us our own personal droid; hats off to Sphero, they made miniature BB-8s real.
But as of today, the makers have just shown off a prototype wearable at CES 2016 that takes it a step further, allowing you to control your BB-8 with the Force!

“Use the Force Luke!”.
Let’s face it, we’ve all wanted to be Jedi knights at some point in our lives but try as we might, there was no moving that cardboard box with our minds. Well, Google has the next best thing. Ahead of the official Malaysian premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Google has thrown together an interesting new Chrome web browser experience that lets you wield a lightsaber to fend off First Order Stormtroopers.

If you’ve been living under a rock or simply don’t keep up to date with the current times, the next installation of the Star Wars series is about to go on screens worldwide on the third week of December – opening premier dates will be region specific.
Since Malaysians will get their premier screening on the 17th of December, Maxis wants to give back to its customers through this “contest” of sorts, handing you two tickets to watch the show on opening night.

The Force has been relatively strong of late, with trailers, memorabilia, and even gaming consoles all paying homage to the world of Star Wars. Fittingly, our dear landline and internet provider, Telekom Malaysia now has a pre-order page for the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 bundle only for their customers. That said, if you weren’t one of the lucky few that picked up your unit on Sony Malaysia’s online store, since units are now sold out, here’s another chance.

Star Wars season is upon us and Maxis has wasted no time to associate itself with what probably is the most important geek event of the year — the premier of Star Wars: The Force Awaken.
Fans of the Force, you can now pimp your iPhones in the most awesome Star Wars swag this side of the galaxy far, far away. These cases are as authentic as phone cases can be — the C3PO case is every bit just as shiny as the droid it mimics and the Chewbacca case has fur!
If you’re interested in getting one — or all — the cases are available on Amazon and is available for the iPhones 4, 4S, and 5, in used and new condition, from over 30 vendors. We tried ordering a Chewbacca case from the seller “Amazon.com”, and found that on top of the USD 27 for the case, the 2-to-4-day shipping charge to Malaysia was USD 31, bringing the total to about RM175. Not bad and probably worth it considering how easily scratched the iPhone 5 can be.
Just in “case” you’re thinking of buying one of these, remember to check that you order the right size!
