Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – Review

As so many others I was finally able to pick up my new phone (thx to TrueMove for that). While I enjoyed the ride and indy feeling that came along with owning a Xiaomi (RIP Mi4!) for a long time, I now decided to switch back to the mainstream. Two reasons played into this decision. For once it’s really difficult to find reliable service for xiaomi devices in Bangkok. While there are shops who have replacement parts in stock or are able to order some parts, it never feels really trustworthy…

All talk but where’s the action? Conference Overkill in Bangkok

Hey say. Are you going to that event next week? No, not that one, the other one! Even though that one sounds cool too. Or that one the day after and the other one the week after and those others in the following weeks…. The startup scene keeps buzzing and buzzing over here in (Southeast) Asia and Bangkok keeps developing more and more into the hub for all things tech. Sure, Singapore is ‘faster’ and hosts a fair share of ‘cool’ events but Bangkok is not far away and in…

Public transport to reduce maximum speed of vehicles amidst pokemon go craze

With the current launch of Pokemon Go in Thailand the public transportation authorities (BMTA & BTS) have voiced their concerns over decreasing numbers of commuters. Therefore the authorities fear dropping revenues and are considering several options to at least maintain their current income. The increase of ticket fares seems to be on the table as well as other, more ‘interesting’, options.

Get rid of panel discussions – they suck!

Southeast Asia sees its fair share of conferences and events in all kinds of areas. Education, Tech, Entrepreneurship, IT, Construction, Tech, Startups, and Tech. It’s nice to see all those areas blossom and attend events where people that are ‘in’ those topics can pat each other on the back and feel appreciated. Right? Well. It seems so. To be honest though, I always hated this back patting. Even better: Networking! Ooooooh. Business card exchange ole! That’s when you can show off all the creativity that you put into coming up…

After wowing us with lots of interesting stats and facts about Digital, Social and Mobile in Southeast Asia and Thailand in particular earlier this year, Social Media powerhouse “We Are Social” published an updated version of their Digital Southeast Asia almanac. This time however time constraints seem to have gotten the best of the We Are Social team as the current report only shows two slides per Southeast Asian country. However it still shows some intersting data. Digital in Thailand With a population of 65.1 million and an internet penetration…

Top 9 Essential Mac Apps, Tricks & Settings

This website is largely written and composed on a Mac and while I don’t consider myself an Apple fanboy (swearing on my xiaomi phone!) I do like my MacBook and the accompanying OS / X and Apple Mac applications. Since a friend of mine now just got a MacBook and seems to struggle quite a bit I figured I could give some brief pointers in order to make the start into the MacBoook adventure a bit smoother. Look here – and forget everything you know about how operating systems work….
