Good news to all drivers! Shell is celebrating the F1 Grand Prix weekend in Singapore once again with a special promotion for Shell V-Power at the price of Shell FuelSave 98. This promotion is available from 21 to 23 September 2012 at all Shell stations except for Shell Woodlands Mandai and Shell Sin Ming
Shell V-Power is tested on the track with Ferrari to give every drivers improved engine performance with more power and acceleration, no matter what you drive. In fact, Fernando Alonso tested the road fuel formulation of Shell V-Power. Check out the video.
But even though you are using high performance fuel, remember to drive responsibly.
Hey guys, iOS 6 is now available for download. Go get it if you are iPhone or iPad, you might want to upgrade your iOS via iTunes. The download speed is pretty fast. The file is 912.8mb although some people said they getting 760mb. Strange.
This update contains over 200 new features. Stuff like Facebook integration, Shared Photo Streams and Passbook. There are also improvements over Siri, FaceTime, Mail, Safari, Game Centre, App Store and iTunes Store. The YouTube app is no longer a default app. But don’t worry, Google has released a YouTube app in the iOS app store.
But perhaps the most noticeable change is the new Map. Apple will no longer be using Google Maps from iOS 6 onwards. Instead, it is using Maps from TomTom. Turn-by-turn navigation feature is added but we lose Street View feature. The new maps also does not provide Traffic info for Singapore. Which is strange since the Traffic information is provided by LTA. Not sure why it is not included on iOS 6 for Singapore.
So if you rely heavily on the Traffic Info, you might want to wait for Apple to add Traffic info to Singapore before upgrading (And provided that they do add the feature to Singapore). Or pray that Google will release a Google Map for iOS and Apple approves it.
Goodbye Google Maps on iOS. We’ll miss you.
Two months ago, Microsoft first unveiled the new Office, showing how the cloud service works with touch, stylus, mouse or keyboard on new Windows devices. The company recently announced two ways that people can get the new office, a subscription and a one time purchase.
The subscription model is ideal for consumer and small businesses. Subscriptions to Office 365 include all the Office applications, additional services product upgrades as soon as they’re available, and access to Office on up to five PCs or Macs, as well as streamed access to full-featured Office applications on any PC.
The annual subscription to Office 365 cost S$139. You also get a number of added benefits like additional SkyDrive storage, Office on Demand and Skype world minutes.
Oh, and by the way, starting 19 October 2012, any purchase of Office 2010 or Office for Mac 2011 is eligible for a free upgrade to the new Office at the time of availability. So if you are planning to buy Office, you might want to hold your purchase till after 19 October.
Is your Windows 7 PC getting slower? Instead of buying a new PC, why not add a SanDisk ReadyCache to enhance the performace?
The SanDisk ReadyCache solution can help boost a desktop computer’s boot, shutdown and application launch times, creating a more responsive computer while utilizing the existing hard drive’s storage.
The SanDisk ReadyCache product combines a 32GB 2.5inch SSD that resides alongside a desktop computer’s hard drive with an exclusive software call ExpressCache by Condusiv Technologies. After installing the SSD and software, the SanDisk ReadyCache solution’s advanced caching algorithms automatically manage data by caching frequently used files to improve overall performance.
I didn’t get the chance to try it out myself. But based on theory, I think this will definitely improve the system performance. And at a retail price of just S$78, I think it is a cheap and good option to improve your PC’s performance.
The world’s first colour moving pictures have been found by the National Media Museum in Bradford after being forgotten for almost 110 years. The films were made by Edward Raymond Turner from London who patented his colour process on 22 March, 1899.
Check out the video by the National Media Museum. Simply amazing…
Here’s an interesting device. A fully automated popcorn launcher that tosses popcorn at your mouth every time you say “pop.” Check out the video.
Something tells me that this is fake. It might be a “viral campaign” by Popcorn Indiana. I doubt the Popinator can figure out where the sound come from and launch a popcorn accurately.
But if it is real, please get me one. Thanks.
