This is the easiest way to get more storage on your PS4

Posted:  September 25, 2018   By:    5 comments   

Let me begin this by saying I’m primarily a PC gamer. I never saw the appeal in console gaming and I don’t think there will ever come a time where I will pick a console over a PC for this purpose. But, considering how many jaw-dropping games are console exclusive these days, it’s getting harder and harder to ignore them.

Then, you consider the fact that a Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) can now be yours for just over RM1,000 and my resistance is at an all time low. That said, my biggest concern with console gaming was regarding storage — after all, it’s not like a PC where you can just stick in an external drive via a USB port and you immediately get access to a whole bunch more storage.

Or is it?

Our clearest look at the Huawei Mate 20 Pro confirms my biggest fear

Posted:  September 25, 2018   By:    21 comments   

I was a little apprehensive about Huawei‘s next big device. Every single leak I saw, I prayed and hoped that it wouldn’t be what it looks like it would, but as the evidence continues to pile up, it’s becoming clear that there’s no point in my resistance. Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro will almost certainly have a square camera module.

Here’s how you can enjoy high-speed internet in areas without 4G or wired broadband coverage

Posted:  September 24, 2018   By:    21 comments   


This post is brought to you by CONNECTme

Recently, it was proposed that internet access is made a constitutional right in Malaysia. Ideally, fibre broadband is the way to go with faster and reliable access that’s cost effective. Unfortunately, fibre broadband coverage is only limited to urban areas with high density, and as a result, there are many Malaysians that are deprived of high-speed broadband access.

Sure, there are other alternative technologies that can provide faster access, and this include 4G LTE. It’s faster to deploy but despite most mobile players claiming as high as 90% coverage, that often refers to population instead of geographical coverage. That leaves many underserved Malaysians without access to even 4G.

Even if you’re covered by both wired and wireless technology, there are residents that can’t apply for broadband due to insufficient fibre ports or their wireless networks are simply too congested to provide a decent experience.

If this is your situation, there’s now a third option to consider which can provide high-speed internet no matter where you are in Malaysia.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro might support memory card expansion but it’s not microSD

Posted:  September 24, 2018   By:    26 comments   

Most flagship smartphone these days don’t give you the option to expand storage with a microSD card. For Huawei, their top of the line Huawei Mate 10 Pro and P20 Pro come with 128GB of internal storage but if that’s not enough, there’s no way for you to pop-in a microSD card.

However, for the upcoming Mate 20 Pro, it appears that Huawei might be doing something rather different. You could potentially upgrade the storage on their next flagship phablet but it won’t be your typical microSD card.

My thoughts on Touch n Go’s RFID system

Posted:  September 22, 2018   By:    44 comments   

Touch ‘n Go’s radio-frequency identification (RFID) system has received a lot of mixed reactions so far. It’s never easy to completely revamp a system that a lot of people have been using, especially if it meant throwing out everything they already invested in to make a fresh switch.

But while it’s easy to be blinded by this, and internet rage, the thing I was more curious about was the technology. Does it work? Is it better than SmartTAG? Is this really our future? After testing it out, here’s what I think.
