Gadgets on the table 5 years ago and now

This is a very random posting.

I was doing some blogging at Starbucks and looking back at some old blog posting. I stumble upon this photo of the gadgets I have on the table when doing my work at Starbucks 5 years ago.

I was using my IBM ThinkPad T43 back then. If you notice, there is a huge Huawei 3G Dongle at the side (Next to the Starbuck cup). Yes, the 3G dongle were huge back in 2008. I think I still have it somewhere in my drawer. Beside my ThinkPad is my trusty PDA, Palm TX. I love Palm TX. Too bad the company is dead now. I also have a 1st Gen iPod Touch for listening to music. One gadget that is not in the photo is my Sony Ericsson K800 which I used to take that photo.

Compare it with the table now.

I’m now using a MacBook Pro. My PDA, iPod touch and K800 have been replaced by my iPhone 4S. And instead of a huge Huawei 3G dongle, I’m now using a Huawei LTE Mobile WIFI. Still bulky but at least it gives me a lot faster speed and won’t drain my laptop battery. And more than 5 devices can share the same Mobile WIFI to connect to internet. I love the Mobile WIFI. Maybe I should blog more about it next time.

It’s interesting to see how much things have changed in 5 years. I wonder what will be on the table 5 years from now.

Attorney-General’s Chambers has commenced legal proceedings against cartoonist behind Demon-cratic Singapore

Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) has commenced legal proceedings in the High Court against Leslie Chew Peng Ee for contempt of court. The 37 year old is the cartoonist behind the popular political satire comic series, Demon-cratic Singapore. According to AGC, Leslie Chew is accused of scandalising the judiciary in five comics published on the Facebook page.

The case will be heard at the High Court on 12 August 2013.

While I’m not a huge fan of Demon-cratic Singapore, I do feel that this case will set a precedent on the limit and boundary of satire writing in Singapore. Let’s watch this case closely.
