posted in WHAT CAN I SAY?
Apple Inc.
First of all, I'd like to say that I'm NOT a fanboy for Microsoft and PCs, I just hate Apple.      I don't like Apple for many reasons.  One of them is for the fact that for what you get in the products they sell, you get horribly price-gouged.  I'm not joking, I have an Alienware Aurora gaming desktop with an i7 Quad Core 2.66 gHz processor, dual …

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 …

IPad mini
This time with the iPad Mini.      Yes, indeed :-)      Steve Jobs will turn in his grave ;-)   A screen size of 7.9", a mere 0.9" more than most of its competitors, Apple is able to steal the limelights from Samsung, Microsoft, Google and whoever chooses to enter the arena.   No, it is not a mini iPad. It is the iPad mini, …

IPad mini
Finally! The iPad mini was delivered by Apple store to me some 30 hours after the official launch on Nov 2. I have been waiting patiently for Apple to produce something lighter than my iPad 2 which I thought to be the best product Apple had ever produced. It is my favorite even after my acquisition of iPhone 5 2 weeks ago.     Now that I have set up my iPad mini I must admit it …

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!

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 …

      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. …

Excelsior Mahjong
A reasonably good and authentic Hong Kong mahjong game on the iPad available for $1.99 from the Apps store. If you have no knowledge of mahjong nor know the game rules, this will not be for you. It is however a good alternative for those who enjoy the intricacies of mahjong. One thing I don't quite like about it is its not so sensitive to touch "pong" icon although that might be because …

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, …

Flipboard
Some claimed that this is the mother of all iPad apps and I tend to agree. Well, after two weeks or so and downloading of some 2 dozens apps, this is one that I found to be most original and dynamic. How long it will stay out there in the open is up to anyone's guess though.      What Flipboard does is to give its users a chance to create his/her own magazine. You can …

Apple Wireless Keyboard
I love its futuristic look and simplistic design. With the bluetooth function, this keyboard is something you might want to add to your iPad accessories. For $69, it's not cheap but no one ever said Apple product is cheap. What you would get is quality stuff though. I'd probably use it quite a bit in conjunction with the iPad. I certainly don't like to type on the screen!      …

Incase Origami Workstation
With the wireless keyboard from apple, this case which also acts as a stand completes the iPad revolution. I'm ditching my laptop soon enough ;-) For less than $30, it is not only economical but light. You can travel with it and also protects your keyboard in the process. I like the looks, the feel and the weight of this product. It's very sturdy and well designed!      …

iPad 2
I could be wrong... but if I'm right, here's the take.      Just as the stock markets are being "reinvented", our online and computing experiences are also being transformed by the iPad (currently the iPad 2). I haven't believed our leaders' resolutions to revamp the financial institutions to a large extent for almost 3 years now. There are many reasons …

Anyone who didn't lose a cent in the Stock markets last 2 weeks should go and invest in an iPad. That'd probably be your best investment under the current situation!

HBO Go mobile app
This review won't be very long. Essentially, HBO Go is awesome!      HBO Go is an online archive of every HBO series created, with a sprinkling of first run movies thrown into the mix. While flipping through the library, I'm constantly surprised at the number of quality shows produced by HBO, and having the entire back-catalog means you can start a series from the very …

Smart Cover for iPad
They are bright, they are colorful and they are quite affordable. Comes in 2 types (leather & polyurethane) and a variety of colors, it attaches itself to the iPad through a magnetic strip on the side which makes it feel and look like a magazine. I like it for its lightweight and its ability to make the iPad stands. The colors are also pleasing to the eyes. The magnet is not so strong that you …

This is the money making machine of the future! It will be the windows of tomorrow & you'll see it everywhere you visit! Go buy Apple stocks when market collapsed!       The 4-letter word is AAPL!!! Certainly sounds like a-p-p-s to me!!! In just a year, it has gone up some 55% while after the 2008 market crash, it's has sprung from around $82 to $400!!!   …

Reuters News Pro for iPad
One of the most useful business news reader for me, where the iPad is concerned. In fact, it now covers U.S., Canadian, UK, India and China's financial and top news! Considering what my office used to have to pay for its services, getting it for free (naturally not the full version) is a steal. For most users, this app will suffice!       There is also a real time currency …

Warning: Once you held it you won't want to let it go!      For the last 3 days, I've spent a great deal of my time "readying" the iPad for my dad's usage. The old man wanted to buy one for stock trading. So, I got hold of an iPad in Hong Kong, which I was told has the cheapest iPad across the region, if not the world. Yes, indeed, it was at …
