MSI Prestige 15 Review: MSI’s content creator laptop just comes short of prestige

The MSI brand has been synonymous with gaming in the computer market for the better part of the decade, so it is interesting to see them target a slightly different type of consumer with their newest laptop, the MSI Prestige 15. Specifically, the MSI Prestige 15 is part of the Prestige line from MSI – one that is geared towards content creators. The computer giant is touting the Prestige series as being able to handle heavy-duty content work while remaining lightweight and portable; a 14-inch version is also available.  Design The design of the laptop mirrors the change in demographics.…

‘OK Google’: Unconventional Google voice commands that will make your life easier

Convenience is everything these days, and anything that can make our lives even a little simpler is much sought after. Google has aided the cause by introducing through Google Assistant to the world. Google Assistant is a very popular service, with it being installed on over 400 million user devices, which includes a vast majority of Android devices and smart speakers. However, despite its popularity, a lot of the features offered by the voice assistant are not widely known by the general populous. To maximise your Google Assistant’s full potential, here’s a guide on all the voice commands that you…

Vivo S1 Review: Style with some substance

Vivo has been quietly grinding it out among the mid-range smartphone market, launching various products to cater to the different needs. For their newest ‘S’ series, they placed an emphasis on the style of the product for people who are more conscious about design, and thus, the Vivo S1 is born. The aesthetics are on full display once you pull the phone out of the box. Immediately, the design of the body will capture your attention: a cool cyan that bleeds into a light lavender for the Skyline Blue model. It’s a refreshing take in the current lineup of product…

Songbird Symphony Review: A rhythmic romp

Admittedly, music-based games are not my forte and not something that I would actively look for to play. But in Songbird Symphony, I have gained a newfound appreciation for the medium.  For the uninitiated, Songbird Symphony is a sprite-based platformer/rhythm game that follows the story of the ever-enthusiastic fledgling Birb. At the insistence of the forest’s wise owl, Birb sets off on a journey to learn new songs in his quest to find out who his real family is. Birb’s story of self-identity is a simple one, but that doesn’t mean it lacks substance. The five or so hours I’ve…

Gears 5 Review: A well-oiled COG in the franchise

The Gears of War series is a veteran among game franchises; now coming close to 13 years within the industry since the first Gears of War launched in 2006. But like battle-hardened Marcus Fenix, the protagonist from the first trilogy, Gears 5 continues to deliver more than the guts and glory that the series is famed for.  Gears of War 4 ended with the surprising revelation that Kait Diaz, a COG soldier that is part of the new three-person crew fighting against the new Swarm threat, is genetically linked to the Locusts. The story of Gears 5 follows up on…

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Review: A Blistered Thumbs Up

Admittedly, I’m not part of the group of people who experienced Crash Team Racing when it was released in its heyday. I’ve heard stories about it since that has elevated it to cult status among the older generation of games. Now, after all the clamour for an update to the franchise, we have a new game to experience: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a remaster of the original game from 20 years ago, with elements included from its sequels, Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing. You also get the full roster of racers that…

5 network security tips to prepare yourself against incoming cyber threats

The recent Singhealth data breach has put personal data security under the microscope. 1.5 million people were affected by the cyberattack, of which 160,000 had outpatient prescriptions stolen.  While incidents like this are not something commonly seen and are hard to account for, we have the power to prepare ourselves from further attacks that occur in our own home. One out of five Singaporeans own at least one smart device, and it is highly likely that we have inputted our personal information while using said devices. We run the risk of exposing ourselves to similar attacks from cybercriminals if we…
