Flipboard 2.0
Yes, you hear me right. This is where the future of social media lies...      The concept is pretty much similar to Lunch.com if not a lot more! Flipboard was a news reader, now it is comprising of millions of magazines created by members and readers. Curating similar topic of interest is the main driver in this iOS app and in just barely two months over 1/2 million magazines been …

My most favorite iOS app til date. Now, in addition to reading news and articles, one can create magazines on all topics from all sources! Oops, soon magazines will be out of business!!!!

Angry Birds - Rovio Mobile
When I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablet (10.1 inch model) last November, I had to download Angry Birds off Google Play's store.       This game is like crack.  This game is fun, but it's too addicting.  Who would have thought that a game where you use various types of birds as slingshot fodder to attack evil green pigs and their dwellings would catch on …

The S III doesn't sport a unibody design, so you can pry off the paper thin back cover at any time, and swap the memory card or the battery. The One X+ is shut tight, but comes with four times the 16 GB storage capacity of a basic S III.      The Galaxy S III sports a physical home key on a pretty thin lower bezel, which is comfortable to operate, and preferable for some people …

Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush is a highly addictive iPhone game that definitely borrows from games before it like Bejewelled and Tetris.       The game is free, but you are constantly bombarded by options to "power-up" with in-app purchases.  I got by okay until I hit level 35, at which point I was asked to pony up $.99 to unlock more levels, or spam my Facebook Friends in order …

Steve Jobs
I know I'm late talking about this, but the ugly truth about Steve Jobs is that he wasn't the "genius" that everyone thinks he was.       The people that compare Jobs to folks like Nikola Tesla don't know what they're talking about.  Tesla not only had great ideas, but he actually got his hands dirty to actually create machinery and other devices …

iPhone 5
It took me almost a month before I got hold of my very first iPhone, ie. the iPhone 5. I did try to make a go for it on its first 2 days of launch on the Apple.com HK site as in that country it is using the lottery/ballot system to determine who get to buy them every day. Even today it is still adopting that very strategy. I suppose Apple store didn't want to deal with a load of customers coming …

iPhone 5
As far as the iPhone is concerned I'm a late adopter. Most of the Apple products I have had either the first generation (except for the iPad, the 2nd generation). When it comes to the iPhone though, I always find that it hadn't reached the standard I demanded of the cellphone, until now. The criteria I was searching for was sleek, light AND thin.      Finally, Apple satisfies …

Words With Friends
Can be addicting but the beauty of this app (on iPad as well as Android phones) is that it allows one to play at one's pace as well as with friends and strangers alike!       Nothing about an age old game other than a great way to improve one's vocab. I only wish it has a dictionary within the app itself!!! Great that it's free of charge though!
posted a Quick Tip about Zite. May 28, 2012
Zite
A reasonable good app which was promoted on iTunes store. It's a kind of magazine styled e-reader with articles curated from the web classified into different groups. The beauty of it is it allows one to curate a topic, say Hawaii, and recent articles (3 days ago max) can be viewed. Somewhat similar to Flipboard but less dynamic. Yet, it feels different and the sources of articles are more varied …

iPhone 4S
I know that I had previously said that I wasn't going to pick up the iPhone 4S, but after giving it some thought, I decided to go for it anyways.  ...Because why not?  I was eligible for an upgrade anyways.  Instead of breaking out a lawn chair in front of an Apple like The Woz did, I hit up the Apple site at midnight October 7th and pre-ordered that baby.  I figured I would …

TED
TED takes on a new light and life on the iPad 2. Its iPad app made it one of the most pleasurable to watch a video and to learn about others' thought processes and ideas.   In some ways, entering the world of TED is like being in the community of Lunch. You've no clear idea what you'll find. If you are open to collective intelligence, you'll find something of great …

Steve Jobs
Death is always sad, but I've never been one to get too emotional over the death of a public figure.  Someone who I didn't personally know.  Someone who I had never met.  However, in the case of Steve Jobs, I'm deeply saddened to the point of numbness.       Steve Jobs literally changed the world.  He revolutionized technology and in turn, those …

Steve Jobs
      Death knows no boundaries. It does not recognize nationalities, age, demographics, beauty, bank accounts nor fame. We can't really tell who will live to a ripe old age or who will pass on the next day. All we are left with is how much a person has effected in his lifetime, not how long he has lived.      Steve Jobs is the inspiration behind this review. …

A legend. Too young to die at 56! He will live on in many of his fans' hearts though... Go get the iPad 2, it's now officially the last product Jobs launched! A sad day as I type this QT on the iPad 2.

Announcement of iPhone 4S
Not going to lie -- I'm slightly disappointed by Apple's "Let's Talk iPhone" keynote yesterday.  After keeping us waiting since June of last year, I expected more out of the latest iPhone.  For the last three generations of iPhone, they came out with a new one about every 12 months and the successors were all very impressive compared to the former model.  So if …

Flipboard
It's fast becoming one of my most favorites iPad apps out there. Flipboard complements your reading habits and invites readers to read in a more pleasurable and dynamic way. It's also one of the most useful social media apps, imho!            With Flipboard, I'm able to keep in touch not only with the hobbies and activities I'm passionate about, …

iPhone Bootcamp
I recently took a 3 day course in Santa Monica called "Intensive 3-Day iPhone Workshop".  The course is designed to be an introduction to iPhone programming as well as provide some basic overview of Objective-C which is the primary language the iPhone SDK is built upon.        The class was taught by Stephen Kochen who is also the author of Programming in Objective-C. …
