During IFA 2018, Sony has introduced the latest addition to the highly-accredited Sony 1000X family and it is called the WH-1000XM3. If you are a fan of these active noise canceling (ANC) headphones by Sony, you will happy to hear that the XM3 is now available for pre-order in Malaysia.
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?
I don’t believe anything is more frustrating for a content creator, working with videos and photos, than having your SD card die on you. Well, maybe when Adobe’s Premiere Pro freezes on you before you’ve saved after a 5-hour edit session, but I think that still takes second place to a dead SD card.
The good news is, Sony understands that. In a world full of fragile electronic devices that hold our entire life, the company has unveiled their brand new SD card whose name leaves very little to the imagination.
Sony has recently introduced a bunch of new products at the IFA press conference and one of them happens to be the latest member of the 1000X series, the WH-1000XM3. Sony’s 1000X series of headphones are well known for its noise-canceling features and the company has made some major upgrades on their latest flagship headphones.
Ahead of Sony’s media event at IFA 2018, the Xperia XZ3 is now revealed thanks to Roland Quandt. This is Sony Mobile’s latest flagship smartphone which looks like an incremental update to its current Xperia XZ2 that was launched during MWC 2018.
What a year it has been so far since the last time we published our best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition). We changed governments in a historic election nobody saw coming, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is now zero-rated and, of course, a whole bunch of brand new affordable smartphones launched.
We thought about a simple update to our original guide, but because so much has changed, we figured it would be a disservice for you to just add the couple of new phones to the end of that one. Instead, we decided that it would be better if we gave the whole guide a proper face-lift, featuring the new updated GST-less budget smartphones, several brand new handsets and a revised Editor’s Choice section.
Here’s our ultimate budget smartphone guide Part 2.

4 years ago Sony announced that they were parting ways with VAIO Computer Business and VAIO Corporation was formed to take over the PC business.
From that day onwards, we didn’t see much VAIO laptops around as they were only available in selected markets including Japan. However, this is about to change as VAIO is set to make a comeback to Malaysia very soon.
I was enamoured with Sony’s WH-1000XM2 headphones. They were so effortlessly brilliant at what they were designed to do that it was almost a no-brainer. Honestly, the only thing that would stop me from recommending these awesome wireless headphones to anyone was their RM1,599 price tag. Granted, it was still excellent value considering the competition, but it is still a lot of money.
Now though, things are a little different. Actually, they’re RM570 different because that’s exactly how much you’ll be shaving off the RRP if you pick up a pair during this sale.
Sony has finally announced the Xperia XZ2 Premium which succeeds the Xperia XZ Premium. Not only it brings top-notch specs with a 4K HDR display but it is also the first Sony flagship to come with a dual-camera setup.
If you cut me, I’d probably bleed Fujifilm. I’ve been a fan of the Fujifilm X line of cameras since I saw the first X100. There’s just something about the way they look, the way you take pictures with them, the great selection of glass and the amazing photographs their X-Trans sensors can produce.
But, they aren’t without fault. Weaknesses that range from a lack of full-frame options to their sub-par video recording are issues that have plagued the lineup for the longest time. And, it wasn’t until recently that they finally built a camera with in-body image stabilisation.
All of these things have already been done, and some might argue done better, by the kings of mirrorless in the modern age: Sony. I never really bought into the hype for Sony’s cameras because their menu systems are convoluted and I’ve always felt that they lacked the “soul” of a Fujifilm camera.
Then, Sony launched the a7 III and they managed to create something that may quite literally be too good to ignore.
