Here’s an interesting advertisement of David Beckham playing Beethoven’s Ode To Joy with footballs.

It’s an advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy Note. But unfortunately, it wasn’t taken in one shot. And the advertisement didn’t really showcase much about the Samsung Galaxy Note’s unique features other than the front part where they use it for planning.
But hey, when you have a successful product like the Galaxy Note, you don’t really need much advertisement. Just a cool advertisement with a celebrity will do.

They say that you will most likely think of someone in your past when you first hear “Someone Like You” by Adele. For me, that person is you.
It has been 5 years since we first met. I miss you.

Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made,
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

OK, this is totally random. But hey, check out this Chinese police video. Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his newly wedded wife make a cameo appearance at the 0:29 mark.

It is still unsure why Mark appears in the video. Is the world really so small that he happen to walk infront of the camera while they were filming? Or was it a planned appearance? Or maybe it was digitally added. (eeerr…. ok, why would anyone want to do that?)
But nevertheless, it is still funny to see Mark Zuckerberg in the video. After all, Facebook is still banned in China.

It’s been a while since we hear anything from Creative. It seems like the company is gearing up for the launch of a new generation Sound Blaster.

Creative is currently asking the public to guess what the next generation Sound Blaster will be. The most accurate and creative answer will win the product.
The product will be unveiled on 30 May 2012. Not sure exactly what is it. But I highly doubt that it will be a Sound Card. Most likely they are just hoping on the Sound Blaster branding. I guess maybe they are launching a new Tablet.
So what do you think Creative is launching tomorrow?

When Logitech wanted to send me the Mini Boombox for review, I was kinda skeptical. But after trying out for a couple of weeks, I must say that its pretty good for something this small.

The Logitech Mini Boombox is a portable Bluetooth speaker that weighs just 229 grams. It has a internal battery which is able to last up to 10 hours. It uses a MiniUSB port to charge the battery. If your device doesn’t have Bluetooth, you can still connect using the Aux port. Unfortunately, the aux cables aren’t provided in the package.

Pairing the Mini Boombox with your Bluetooth device is pretty simple and straight forward. Just press and hold the Bluetooth/Phone button for 3 seconds to enter pairing mode. I paired it with my iPhone 4S without any problem. Sound quality is pretty good for something of this size. The Mini Boombox is able to get pretty loud but like most mini speakers, the sound quality starts to degrade when you reach maximum volume. I usually set it to roughly 80% volume which is pretty loud and doesn’t affect sound quality. Besides music, I notice that the Logitech Mini Boombox is pretty good for listening to podcast or audio ebooks.

You can also use the Logitech Mini Boombox as a speaker phone with the built in microphone.

Personally, I’m not a fan of the touch sensitive buttons. I would prefer physical buttons. But I guess the lighted touch sensitive buttons looks nicer.

But I’m kinda disappointed that Logitech did not include a carrying case for the Mini Boombox. Most people would want to carry the Mini Boombox around and it would be good to have a carry case to protect it from scratches.

The Logitech Mini Boombox is available at Challenger outlets, iStudio, Epicentre and all authorised Logitech resellers at a suggested retail price of S$109.

Happy 20th Birthday Golden Village.
GV Yishun, Singapore’s first 10-screen multiplex, open its door on 28 May 1992. It’s been 20 years already. Wow. Today, Golden Village operates 10 multiplexes, housing 81 screens island-wide. The 11th multiplex at City Square will be opening by end of this year.
To celebrate its 20th birthday, Golden Village, invited the entourage of movie icons to its birthday celebration held at GV VivoCity.





Organisers explained that the mascots opted to use the MRT train service to ‘avoid the rush hour traffic’. Luckily the trains didn’t breakdown.
Besides inviting movie icons to town, Golden Village will also kick off a month long celebration with attractive weekly promotions and lucky draw to thank movie patrons.
