Uber Stories in Singapore: Why they drive Uber

Since the beginning of 2016, I have been a regular user of Uber. There is even one Uber driver that has taken me three times! While I have always taken the time to talk to my Uber drivers, this morning’s journey was especially silent. When I received my driver confirmation, the Uber app had an…

Limitations and Innovation (The Japanese Bath)

Now the Japanese toilet has been talked about a lot. There are also videos out there on it (including real demos). Everyone knows the level of innovation that the Japanese have taken toilet technology. What most miss out is… the WHY. (If you have no idea what so special about Japanese toilets, there is an…

All the Office Confusion over 365!

With the implementation of Office 365 in the office, we are now more connected than ever, right? Wrong. While Office 365 is being deployed, no one is really clear as to what are the benefits it brings. When I talk to different people in the office, I realised everyone has a different understanding of Office…

Unintentional Review of Redmi by a iPhone User

My iPhone 5 died for the second time in a month. First time,  the top of the screen popped open and I can see the inside. The guy at the shop said it was a bloated battery and asked me which charger was I using – the flat one or the bulky one? huh? Apparently,…

2012 Blog in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,200 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get…

Adventures with Apple iMap – Lost & Found

Now a lot has been said about iOS 6 and its now famous iMap. Not quite the perfect product. Actually, it had been quite the adventure. In September before iPhone 5 was available, iOS 6 was ready for all to download and I downloaded it on my iPhone 4 on the same day. I remember not much has…

Learning to Live With Just One

The problem with switching over to the iPhone 5 is the Lightning cable. There is only one and for over a month, I was not able to buy another cable – an Apple origin or otherwise. I did not realise it, but I had been so dependant on having a minimum of 3 cables. Well…

I have been SPAMMED

As a relatively new blogger, getting comments on my writing is exciting. Most of what I get have been encouraging. But I started noticing a strange pattern in the comments. They tend to come in multiples of 3 to 6 comments at a time from very similar sounding names – Land Rover Cherry Hill, Mercedes Cherry Hill, etc….

Google+ is Useless. Maybe Not

This morning, I googled up “Scoot Airlines”, the new Singapore based budget airlines and I noticed a friend’s blog about their new uniform second on the search list. How can it be? Next I noticed a “person” icon next to his post. I looked at the source and realised that it was a result of…

iPad for Work? Does not Work for Me.

I just read in an article that Forrester Research expects global enterprise spend on Apple products will increase by up to 50% in 2012. While all that is well and good for Apple, I am discovering that my iPad is quite useless for me to do any work at home. So far, I have never successfully done any…

Apple Lemmings in 2012?

There I was, waiting for lift on the ground floor of my HDB block, came a twenty-something man with his eyes glued to his phone as he plays a game. When the lift door opened, he did not even once look up. He just walked straight into the lift, even though there were 4 people already…
