The sophisticated design of the SG50 limited edition PowerShot G7 X is accentuated by a classy yet striking hue of red on the ring control. The ring control, built into the lens barrel, enables easy adjustments to basic functions like shutter speed and aperture whilst the stacked mode dial tweaks exposure compensation. The dynamic hue of red is symbolic of passion and also the signature of both Singapore and Canon. The SG50 emblem adorns the camera body and is embossed on the camera pouch, making it a timeless edition for keepsake.
The limited edition run of these 500 units is designed and manufactured in Japan. It comes with the special 15th anniversary edition Canon G Series packaging and also includes a certificate of authenticity.
The PowerShot G7 X (SG50 limited edition) comes with a camera case and retail at S$829.

Google recently announced that it will be ending SMS notifications for Google Calendar from 27 June 2015.
If you have SMS notification turned on, you’ll see pop-up notifications for your event on your mobile phone’s calendar app or on your computer browser that has Google Calendar opened.
I guess this signifies the end of an era. SMS notifications was great back in those days when not everyone has a smartphone. With Smartphone everywhere that can notify users of upcoming events, there is really no need for SMS notifications.
Although personally I think I’ll miss the SMS notifications. Call me old skool but I still feel that a SMS notification attracts more attention than an app notification. But that’s just me.

The new office was designed with both Twitter and Singapore in mind. There are elements of Singapore’s heritage incorporated throughout the interior design, including Peranakan wall and floor tiles, nostalgic old-style doors and windows, 1970s wall grilles, bricks and furniture. As a reflection of Twitter’s role as a platform for live, public conversations, the office has a large Commons area for events of up to 100 people, while many work areas throughout the office were built for group discussions, including The Library. The #LoveWhereYouWork neon hashtag, Twitter vending machine, Tweet wall and birdhouses around the office emphasize the company’s iconic brand. All the rooms are also named after birds from across the region, including Emu the boardroom.
