I had disappeared… almost a year… choose reason…
a) i was too busy with a new life
b) i lost my password
c) my image library is full
d) it takes too much effort
Seriously? I can’t remember but I felt like blogging what i found to be an amazing product by Apple (iPod Touch iOS4) just now and so I logged in. Looking below my post, and you will see that i left off almost a year ago with a HTC phone and an Apple mouse. Today I want to write about the HTC Hero I have now and the iPhone 4 that I want to get…
I am still using the HTC Hero… it was great and it was lousy… it gave me instant view of the my stock portfolio and my hotmail and a full facebook site with a direct photo upload link and a good camera… it has 1 day battery life and it drop calls or even missed it. That’s bad since a phone’s basic function is to make calls.
So, I traded in my Nokia E71 for it’s new brother, the E72 since that what it’s good for, making calls and lasting for days and its got free Ovi map!
I was contemplating on getting the N8 but Nokia is just taking so too long to launch for its own good. But the Symbian on the E72 made me think twice of waiting for the N8 although it is going to be a major upgrade and it has a 12 mega pixel camera! Symbian is too slow! I can’t even surf properly, but not to condemn it because it’s not really a phone for surfing.
So why do I wanna get an iPhone, I am not even an iPhone fan. I bought an iPod touch 2nd Generation and I seldom used it. Well, sadly, the Android in HTC Hero made me got so used to entertainment and information on the go… and there isn’t really anything to look forward to in the Android world now even after upgarding my Hero’s OS from 1.5 to 2.1…
The iPhone had said “In so many ways, it’s a first”.
It’s the first with a good surfing OS, the first with the Wifi made so easy it’s idiot proofed, the first with a glass panel so hard it can crush a real apple without damaging the phone, the first to make a walkie talkie glamorous with its facetime software, the first to have a badly designed antenna and still lived to tell the good news to it’s shareholders, the first to sell online for SGD888 and people can still buy from you for SGD1300… how cool is that?
I bought one for my wife… and I am going to get one for myself next month when the HTC Hero’s contract is up.

I never ever think that Apple is/was innovative… the things that they introduce, you get them in other gadgets ages ago, the only difference is they have the fans to recognise them as good things to have.
Today I say Apple is good. I see the new iPod Touch as a next generation walkie talkie… What am I talking about?
“Video calling is in full effect on iPod touch. Now your friends can see what you’re up to, when you’re up to it. With the tap of a button, you can wave “hi” while standing in a foreign country, get a second opinion on a pair of boots, or have your friends bear witness to the everyday pranks, bets and dares they otherwise might have missed — new iPod touch to new iPod touch or iPhone 4 over Wi-Fi. And come face to face with even more fun.”

It began with iPhone. Intuitive, smart, dynamic. Multi-Touch technology introduced a remarkably better way to interact with your portable devices — all using gestures. Now they’ve reached another milestone by bringing gestures to the desktop with a mouse that’s unlike anything ever before. It’s called Magic Mouse.
Click anywhere, scroll in any direction and swipe through images on its seamless top shell. It works wirelessly using Bluetooth. And built-in software lets you configure Magic Mouse any way you want, be it 2 button functionality or left handed.
Finally Magic Mouse features a laser tracking engine that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical technology.
The creator of the mouse has evolved it!

Finally, FM in an apple! Nano now comes with FM radio built-in as well as a feature called Live Pause. This is similar to time-shifting found in digital video recorders and is achieved by recording live radio once you hit pause, so you can go right back to where you left off.
Another significance is a camera added to the iPod nano. This records video at VGA (640 x 480) resolution in H.264 format.
The new iPod nano will cost S$228 and S$288 for the 8GB and 16GB versions.

The new iPod Shuffle has 4GB in space and is the world’s smallest music player, and also happens to be the world’s first talking one. 1.8″ tall x 0.3″ thin to be exact by moving the controls from iPod shuffle to the earbud cord.
The talking feature is called VoiceOver. When listening to a song and you want to know the title or the artist, just press a button and VoiceOver tells you as the music dips down. It even announces the names of your playlists. And when your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too.
The clip is now forged in stainless steel with a nice Apple logo on it. Selling now at SGD128.
