$54 Huawei phone promo demonstrates the power of “Kiasuism”

Ever heard of this saying in Singapore? “Hell hath no fury like an elderly scorned”. Clearly, Huawei didn’t, seeing as how they have completely botched their whole promotional event for their phones. Specifically, their whole promotion was based on the upcoming 54th National Day and was targeted at people born during or around the Merdeka generation, aptly discounting their Huawei Y6 Pro smartphone to SG$54 from its original SG$198 price. By now you must have already heard about how it has failed spectacularly, with angry uncles and aunties causing a ruckus at various Huawei stores around Singapore. Obviously, the thought…

Is 5G going to change our world? Here’s what you need to know

What is 5G? For most of us, the terms 4G or LTE (short for Long-Term Evolution) just mean faster mobile data. If you have heard about the incoming 5G (the fifth generation cellular network technology), you are probably thinking that it could mean even faster mobile data than 4G.  You wouldn’t be wrong, but 5G can be so much more than just that. On a technical level, yes, 5G is an upgrade to our existing 4G/LTE connections. As shared by Huawei’s Deputy Chairman Ken Hu at MWC19 Shanghai, we can expect to see a jump in data speeds from 4G’s…

Trump vs. Huawei: No One Wins in This Two-Sided Feud

The war between Donald Trump and China rages on, possibly reaching a crescendo following Trump’s recent announcement. The announcement detailed the blacklist of business relations between U.S companies and Huawei, citing the latter as an “unacceptable risk” to national security. The ban itself was not wholly surprising, given the rising tensions between the two countries. However, the ramifications from the fallout will have an impact further reaching than the shores of America and China. In the wake of the announcement, Google has come out and said that they will be complying with the order and thus, will be rescinding future…

Apple is out of the wireless charging race, and that’s fine by us

Let’s travel back in time. The day is 12 September 2017: Apple had just unveiled the revolutionary iPhone X alongside the iPhone 8 – making an unprecedented move by skipping the ‘iPhone 9’. The surprises didn’t stop there. Apple signalled its intent to “move the industry forward” by also announcing the Apple AirPower; a wireless charging pad that allowed users to charge up to three Apple devices at a time with a specialised iPhone notification display. They set its release date as 2018. It is 2019 now. The AirPower has yet to arrive in stores. In fact, it never will…
