Android Phone Name Generator

Have you ever wonder how companies come up with names for their next Android phone? If you think about it, a lot of them have similarities in the naming convention. So someone decided to come up with a Android Phone Name Generator .

Come to think of it, the site is pretty useful for those who want to spread fake rumors about the next amazing Android phone. HTC Thunderbot Plus Pro X2 G1 anyone?

Razer Blade delayed: the good and the bad news

Razer’s first entry into the gaming laptop market was supposed to hit the North America stores by Q4 2011. But it seems like the Razer Blade will be delayed till mid or late January 2012.

Razer CEO Tan Min-Liang explains on a Facebook posting that the delay is due to a last minute switch from 320GB HDD to a 256 SSD drive. It is great that Razer decided to move to a SSD which is faster than normal HDD.

The good news is, the price of the Razer Blade remains the same even though they’ve upgraded the harddisk to a SSD drive. And for those who have registered to be notified when the Razer Blade ship, Razer will throw in a matching Razer Orochi Blade Edition gaming mouse to thank you for your patiences. Sweet.

Still no Singapore release date and pricing.

Queen’s Christmas Day Message to be on Kindle

The Queen’s Christmas Broadcasts is a long held tradition. Since 1932, a Christmas Day message has been delivered by the monarch to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth almost every year.

The Queen’s Christmas Message will be delivered on 25 December 2011 at 3pm UK time. (11pm Singapore time) The message will be broadcast on television, radio, and over the Internet.

This year, the Queen’s Christmas Day Message will also be made available on the Amazon Kindle as a free download. It is interesting to see how the Monarchy is embracing technology.

The Kindle is the only ebook reader to get the transcript although it will also be made available on the British Monarchy’s Facebook page and website.

Besides this year’s Christmas Day Message, you can also download transcripts of every one of Elizabeth II’s Christmas Day Message since 1952.

But if reading the transcript is not your cup of tea, then head down to The Royal Channel on YouTube.
