Personally, when I think of desirable ultrabooks/thin, light and powerful laptops running Windows 10, I always think of devices like a spec-ed out Dell XPS 13, a ThinkPad X1 Carbon, or the high-end Lenovo Yoga convertibles.
As a low-key hipster (I’d say self-proclaimed but that’s so mainstream), I probably wouldn’t have considered the ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe. Why? I’m not too sure, but these devices never seemed particularly desirable to me.

I loved last year’s Huawei P9. It was the type of device where its whole was greater than the sum of its parts. It meant that when the P10 came around, this new phone would have some pretty big shoes to fill. Huawei Malaysia certainly wasted no time bringing it in, but the question is: Should you buy one?
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t buy into Moto’s idea of a “modular” smartphone. It was just so simple and elegant that you can’t help but think: “Why didn’t LG think of this?” But I made those assumptions based on what I saw at the launch.
What about in real life as a daily driver? Well, then it gets a little more complicated.

Hype can be dangerous. It often reduces great things to only good and brilliant concepts to only OK. Hype was my biggest problem coming into the launch of the Acer Aspire S 13. After seeing the magnificence of something like HP’s Spectre 13 and the 12-inch Retina MacBook, I had a lot of hope going into Acer’s launch, especially when I heard from sources that the S 13 was going to be something like that.
The bad news? It was that very same hype that led me to be disappointed when I first saw the S 13 in the flesh. But, after that died down, I’m glad to say that my disappointment was completely unfounded.
TP-Link isn’t known for their smartphones. They make routers and other networking solutions and they make them very well. But, with how much the smartphone has taken over our lives, it seems a slice of this market was too tempting to pass up.
So they took a stab at making some smartphones. The result is the Neffos C5 line.
“I want a new phone that’s good but cheap. What should I get?”
You have no idea how many times I get asked that question. Mostly from my sister, but there are plenty from other people as well. Normally, this would be an easy question to answer, what with how far budget smartphones have come.
But, we usually look at a smartphone’s value, not necessarily at its price. Take something like the Redmi Note 3 for example: It’s great value, but being priced closer to RM1,000 doesn’t exactly make it “cheap”.
One of the biggest problems when it comes to listening to your music on the go is that your ears become unfortunately occupied; making it difficult to be aware of your surroundings. But what if you could still listen to your music but keep your ears free? The Aftershokz Trekz Titanium bone conducting headphones aims to make that possible.
Gimmicky features on smartphones are difficult to put your finger on. Often times when it comes to your smartphone experience, they can do more harm than good.
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.
