There are so many gadgets that are available these days, and of course, you cannot afford to pay for all of them. Choose wisely, especially if you know the launch of a new product from the same company is near.
There are a few gadgets that you should avoid buying for now because much improved ones are just around the corner.
1. iPhone 4S
Almost everyone is talking about the new iPhone 5 arriving anytime this year. With a much larger screen, the new iOS 6, faster processor, and even better camera, forget about getting that iPhone 4S this year. It is going to be left in the dust when the new iPhone is released.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note
With Samsung's sales of 7 million Notes worldwide, they are not going to let the momentum slow down. There are rumours that the Galaxy Note 2 will be released in October this year. I am so excited about this! The specs should be very similar to the Galaxy S3, with a screen size similar to the Galaxy Note.
3. Windows phones
There are quite a number of phones that run on Windows, and the Nokia Lumia 900 is noteworthy for its gorgeous design and not forgeting the HTC Titan II for its amazing 16 MP camera. However, Windows phones are still lagging way behind Android phones and iPhones, especially their multitasking abilities. Their apps are still on the losing end, and I think it will take at least another year before Windows can stage a decent fight.
4. Blackberry phones
When I first heard of this brand, I thought it was a fruit. Gone were their glory days. Blackberry must think of better and more innovative ways to win the phones war. They are planning to launch a phone with the new BlackBerry 10 OS. Still, it doesn't look appetising to me, and yes, their apps are equally boring. Save your money for the next iPhone perhaps.

The Project Hello Stranger team headed down to Raffles Place at 8am in the morning on 12th April 2012 (Thursday), to issue High 5s to the working crowd to start off their day. This marks their 2nd public appearance.
Although it sounds like a pretty cool idea, it just doesn't really make a lot of sense. As you can see from the video itself, some of those who did return the high 5s look awkward, and even forced a smile!
A suggestion would be to hide the cameras instead, so that at the very least, they do not know that they are on cam! I hope that they can also reach out to more places, such as the neighbourhoods. A more effective campaign would be to do it on a weekend, where people are "more relaxed".
I just saw a friend remarked on Facebook, " Ever wonder what will happen if Project Hello Stranger issue Free High 5s to those commuters stuck in the trains during a MRT breakdown? "

I'm extremely disturbed by an insensitive remark made by a girl on a NSF guy who passed away during training a few days back.
It seems that she does not appear to be saddened by the news, but instead made the comment that "Singaporean men are too weak, followed by a LOL".
LOL?! Did you just laugh out loud?
I think you are just being very insensitive here, and of course, you deserve to be chided by fellow netizens. Please spare a thought for the guy. I'm glad that you make the effort to make a public apology. Let's just hope that each and everyone of us can be more sensitive to those people around us. By doing so, we will be able to make life better, both for ourselves, and others around us.
Check out her public apology and what really "made her" said such things.

I'm so looking forward to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for my Samsung Galaxy note in Q1, but it seems like it will be delayed until Q2 in Singapore.
Samsung has not officially announced the date for the updates, and it seems that many people in Singapore are getting very impatient.
I do hope that they will release the update soon, otherwise I may end up getting a cheaper tablet that runs on the ICS platform! If you love shopping on Groupon, check out the latest deal from them:
A 7" Wiztab WT7.0 Android 4.0 Tablet is going for $172, original price $375. While stocks last!

2 brothers have created a huge sensation in Singapore over the past few weeks. If you are not aware of what they are, they are Dr JiaJia and his big brother.
In some of their videos on YouTube, they discussed about certain issues pertaining to fellow Singaporeans. Their heavy usage of Singlish has touched the hearts of many people in the country. I believe that if you are staying in Singapore, you might have heard of them recently, especially when they are featured in numerous magazines, newspapers, websites, and so on.
I recommended their videos to my friends, and all of them had a good laugh!
Do check their Facebook page and give them a 'lice'!

Nat Ho's first music video has drew much criticism on YouTube, but he is taking it all in his stride.
The local-made video for his new mini-album's title track "Unleashed" came at a hefty price-tag - S$100,000, an amount that looks really expensive, given his debut in the Singapore singing industry.
YouTube viewers have given the video 732 'likes' since it was posted on YouTube last week, and the number of 'dislikes' of 764 has surpassed the 'likes' by a mere fraction.
While I am quite impressed with this video, some others criticised the 27-year-old for "trying too hard" to "act K-pop". Some also complained that the video used "too much auto tune".
Give him a break guys! He is trying to produce something that comes from a fellow Singaporean. K-pop or not, does it really matter? Do you seriously want him to produce a Singlish MTV instead, something we can call uniquely Singapore? Think again!
It is hard to live your own dreams these days. You are probably lost in other people's dreams. At least give this guy some credit!
