April 2019 Gaming News Round-up

The world of gaming is so fast-paced that news sometimes evades our attention. We decided to compile the biggest news that have come out during the last month and bring it to your attention: Sony reveals specs for their next-generation console Sony has just fired the first bullet in the next-generation console war. On 16 April 2019, online magazine, Wired, published a first-look at the specifications for what was described as the “next-gen Playstation”.

Microsoft Surface Review: Sleek In Aesthetics, Yet Versatile In Functionality

Personally, I prefer gaming-grade rigs, such as Dell’s Alienware or Asus ROG line of gaming-oriented laptops. In comparison, the Microsoft Surface laptop seems almost modest — with its light frame and corporate, not-built-for-heavy-use look. But don’t let that fool you from its workhorse capabilities; it may not run Triple A games as well as a Razer Blade, but it will certainly be more than enough for anybody that doesn’t play first-person-shooters for a full-time living. First Impressions When it comes to looks, the Microsoft Surface Pro is neatly and elegantly presented. It looks sleek, simplistic and professional; essentially what a…

#MakeWhatsNext: DigiGirlz 2018, Empowering Girls To Pursue Careers In STEM

The World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report finds that gender parity is still over 200 years away, and while we know that gender parity won’t happen overnight – the good news is that across the world, women are making positive gains day by day. In view of this, Microsoft has partnered with Grab, Johnson & Johnson, LinkedIn, and Shell to launch this year’s DigiGirlz 2018 – and aptly so on March 8, which is International Women’s Day. Given women’s current low participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), and for women not to be left out of…

Innovation, Education & Charity: Microsoft’s We Tech Care 2016

Last Saturday saw President Tony Tan Keng Yam officially launch the 16th President’s Challenge at Microsoft’s We Tech Care 2016. Held at JTC LaunchPad @ one-north, it was a little different from last year’s gig, which Microsoft held in its One Marina Boulevard headquarters. This year, Microsoft has made good on its mission in wanting to empower every person (and organisation) on the planet to achieve more: focusing the spotlight less on what Microsoft does, and more on how the local IT industry and Tech ecosystem as a whole can create a smarter, more inclusive Singapore. While fundraising is obviously a core topic in any charity…

Microsoft Surface Pro 4: This 2-in-1 Tablet-cum-Laptop Works Great, Even For Microsoft Beginners

Once you go Mac, you never go back? Wrong. As the user of a 13” screen Macbook Pro for a good three years now with zero difficulty, I have to admit that for a period of time, I abandoned Windows completely. For someone not tech savvy like myself, an Apple was easier for beginners to use, and cleaner in terms of appearance, which also meant nicer photos for Instagram. Brilliant. With such unwavering faith in the ability of Apple products, I was pretty impressed (and intrigued) when I learned that Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 had beaten Apple’s iPad Pro at the…
