Apple's iPhone X queue is insane

Sure, the iPhone X costs quite a bit. But that did not stop the crowd from queuing for almost two days to be the first few to get it. Meanwhile, Oppo is drawing some attention from the iPhone X launch with its own Oppo R11s. As is Razer, which just announced its powerful Razer Phone. LG is also in the game for smartphone dominance, and it'll have the LG V30+ ready by December.

What happens in Munich, doesn't stay in Munich! Because Timothy brought the Huawei Mate 10 Pro back, and it's coming soon to a store near you. And what's a new smartphone without a new pair of headphones, with two to choose from Klipsch. Your new smartphone also needs 20GB of data, which Circles.Life is going to give to you for free (till the end of this year). To round it all off, get the UBTECH First Order Stormtrooper robot, for both educational purposes and some fun!

What do you get when you place the new Microsoft Surface Pro in the hands of Bobby Tonelli?

Samsung Galaxy Plus accessories review

By: Eve Goh

 

You think your new Samsung Galaxy Note8 is complete? Think again, because while the Android smartphone is a powerful machine, it has a lot of potential waiting to be unleashed with Samsung's other accessories. From taking 360 photos and videos, to immersing yourself in a virtual reality world or even turning the smartphone into a pseudo-desktop, there's so much more you can do with your Note8.

tech360.tv news roundup - Week 2 October

By: Eve Goh

 

There's no lack of cinemas in Singapore. But one that has laser projection? That's something new. But if you're catching an Uber to watch a show at the new Golden Village cineplex, don't make the driver wait too long, else you'll have to pay a penalty. Such irony, that drivers aren't penalised for making passengers wait. Speaking of irony, guess who's making money from the upcoming Apple iPhone X? Samsung, which will stand to earn US$110 per iPhone X sold! The bigger question is - will the iPhone X be more popular or Google's upcoming Pixel 2 XL, which is finally available in more countries.

Making the Cut - Min-Liang Tan, CEO and creative director, Razer

By: Eve Goh

 

Not many people can claim to love what they do. Or for that matter, create a passionate following amongst gamers. Razer's CEO and creative director Min-Liang Tan managed to check all those boxes, creating amazing products for gamers. At the very heart of it, he manages the business like a game, strategising and overcoming challenges with a gamer's mind and heart.

 

Min-Liang Tan

 

I don't think I really have a favorite game at any point of time, well, I have a favorite game at any point of time, right? Like all the gamers out there, well, you know today it could be Mass Effect or tomorrow it could be, you know, Dragon Age or it could be Ultima or something like that, right? So that's something I love about gaming right, there's always something cool around the corner.

 

Back then in 2005, gamers weren't necessarily the, umm, considered huge industry. On top of that, depending on where you are you've got societal pressure for example, right, game is not good for you, parents, teachers, what have you. But, but, attitudes are changing.

 

I would actually dare say that there are huge amount of opportunities and a huge amount of areas of expansion for eSports right now. Xian, for example, part of Team Razer, you know, he's been one of the eSports athlete we’ve been supporting all the way through and he's been delivering some phenomenal global kind of achievements and we're really really proud of him.

 

We're just really focused on one person and that's the gamer. I like to chat directly with our users, our fans and it's a great conduit for me to always be listening, like, whether it's positive feedback or “I love your product” and things like that and, even negative criticism which we think is really constructive where we are able to say, “Oh is there something we can improve on our product?”, “Is there something that we can push the limits in terms of engineering?”

 

Fundamentally, because I look at it as a gamer, there are all like challenges. You just try to get through a jumping challenge. You can't get through a jumping challenge, you'll find all different ways and means to do it you search on the internet for a walk-through and you know the list could go on there are many huge challenges out there. We don't look at it as a setback, we don't look at it as a negative thing. We look at all of this as challenges and because we were, we are, passionate gamers ourselves, what we wanted to do was to design great product - whether it's hardware or weather software for gamers - and what we've done is today we are world leaders in the gaming peripheral space. We didn't just invent the first gaming mouse we invented an entire new category, a whole industry.

 

Technically it's designing for myself. It’s, umm, it’s more like good fun.

Making the Cut - Paul Michael Scanlan, Huawei CTO

By: Gwyn Lau

 

Paul Michael Scanlan has the bearing of what one thinks a chief technology officer should be, decked out in a suit and looking all serious. Now imagine Huawei's CTO on stage, jamming it up in a session with his band. Yes, he is one of the cool kids on the block.

 

Paul Michael Scanlan

 

People think, you know, CTO is Chief Technical Officer, yes? That is sort of what the title is called. But, very specifically, my job is providing advice to companies to transform them.

 

I love music and I love performing. I love playing music, singing, all these sort of things. The musical side has helped me significantly in the way I do other things, like public speaking and interviews. It’s made me more relaxed significantly. To stand up on stage in front of 3000 people, that’s quite umm, quite a challenge. That’s not easy to do. The fear factor is terrible but it helps you a lot when you stand up on a stage here in front of a few thousand people, as well.

 

What I’ve learnt over all the years I’ve been playing, if you play music by yourself it’s very different to playing with others. When you play with others - I can play, you can play, he can sing, she can sing - whatever, but can we all do it together? If you have the right team, it fosters creativity, musically or in business. The right team, that means the right components. You need the right ingredients to be able to create.

 

From the management perspective, I am very transparent, very open. I always have a policy - my door is always open. I like a team structure as opposed to a very bureaucratic style, I don’t like that. I like to be a little bit more hands-on, I like to understand the problems so that when other people explain it to me we can challenge each other. I like other people to challenge me, I’m not always right, perhaps never. So it’d be good if people can challenge me and then we can collaborate. I believe that collaboration becomes stronger if you have this style.

 

So if you want to grow a business, if you want to develop and take advantages of the changes that the whole behaviour of the planet, you need to be connected. The content is changing so it’s no longer just appropriate to have simple messaging or voice communications.

 

People now want to see video and video is becoming more pervasive in the industry. So therefore, when we know 40-60% of all data is video so, now you see telecom operators themselves, I say probably over the last past 5 years, they’ve taken a specific direction towards this thing called ‘transformation’. Some are heading and moving towards become more video or media oriented operators but generally, they all understand the need that they must change.

Making the Cut - Arthur Chapin, Expedia

By: Lawrence Ng, Eve Goh

 

From his humble beginning as an intern to his current day job as the Senior Vice President of global product & design at Expedia, Arthur Chapin is consistent with one thing - he's a traveler and cook at heart.

 

Arthur Chapin

 

I am absolutely blessed to be able to travel a fair amount both professionally as well as personally. The first time that I got to take my son to the beach- so I’ve a 3½ year old, a kid from Seattle. There is no swimming in the water in Seattle, it’s a little cold. So just to see him sort of explore the beach and especially see the sea turtles which were his favourite, those were memories that which will last for the rest of my life.

 

I also really enjoy the quick, sort of, stopovers or the things you can do when you’re on long business trips. One of my favourite memories was actually going to Koh Samui, offering the owner of the restaurant a little bit of money to teach me how to cook Thai food and the next morning he took me to the market and taught me how to make those dishes. The banana blossom was the best and I flew back that night. So, that’s the type of experiences that will last me forever.

 

Cooking is one of my favourite hobbies. I am constantly experimenting so there’s no one dish - that’s one thing about me whether it’s at work or at home. I started at Expedia, I think I was employee number 262 in our development lab, actually helping us move out of Microsoft. It was kind of cool to see this company grow from a small startup into a large, sort of, international travel player.

 

The scale of Expedia now is absolutely amazing, what hasn’t changed is the people. The same reason that I wanted to join as an intern still exists today. We have a culture of learning, so we will sometimes run tests that challenge assumptions we had - things that had to be true or there’s no way that this feature, you know, could be tested off. Often what we find is that the assumption we had was a wrong assumption.

 

There were co-workers that could feel run over or could feel like I would do anything to, sort of, get the result and would leave dead bodies, if you will. I put more of my effort now into ‘how’, and how the teams interact than the specific ‘what’ we are accomplishing because the ‘what’ takes care of itself. If people are passionate, they know what they are trying to do, and how they are doing it, is by working together.

 

I think it’s only through great mentorship with many of the leaders of Expedia, but also time that I came to value and understand that how you accomplish something is as important as what you accomplish because the ‘how’ is what inspires and trains future people.

Making the Cut - Serguei Beloussov, Acronis CEO

Acronis' CEO Serguei Beloussov prefers to do first and think later. The go-getter attitude and his philosophy to look forward with no regrets is the driving force and management style that has brought success to the data backup company.

 

Serguei Beloussov

 

I’m just a curious person, I want to understand the nature of things and physics is a significant part of it. Quantum physics, in the past 10 years, experienced huge change. There’s lots of books right now which are very easy to read. Historically, quantum physics was a little bit snobbish. We have professors and famous scientists who would come up and say “Wow! It’s very complicated!” but, there is this whole universe and there is understanding of the universe. In fact, you can meet the whole universe or you can meet one person, and that one person is potentially more interesting because his brain is very complex and potentially, can explain the universe.

 

It’s nice to meet great people. One of the key parts of my career was that I met Bill Gates -for a very short time- I was able to meet Mr Lee Kuan Yew, David Gross - he’s a Nobel Prize winner in Physics. You can talk to people like this and they really have deep knowledge. There are some people who first think and then they do, I first do and then I think.

 

Quite often, I share information which I would have better not share. What is information? Information about you is information about your behaviour. It might be very important in the near future. If you have your information, you can be a much better subject for medical care or for employment. In the world, there is physical objects which you preserve and there are physical objects about famous people. Do you have any objects in your home which are from your grand-grand-grandparents? So there’s nothing, right? But you see, that’s a change in the modern world that you can actually preserve digital information for a variable time.

 

I was running a company which was doing engineering for other companies. In a series of steps, we found out that there is a cool part of IT. We split Acronis into a separate company, and at that time, the company focused on just backup. There is different management philosophy for different stage of the company. It is important to be alert, responsive, attentive to detail, to make decisions and to never give up.

 

Sometimes, you talk about hard-working. I have some situations which I wouldn’t want to repeat. I spend a lot of time trying to understand how time is organised. This whole concept of regret is strange because it’s in the past, and so what can you do about it? It’s happened, it’s just there. And the question is again, what can you change in the future because the future is still open, you can do something to it.

Making the Cut - Charlene Koh, co-founder, Paktor

Paktor is serious business. The matchmaking app, having received a recent US$10 million funding, is now in seven countries including Japan and South Korea. But even as the business grows and recently acquired another dating app, Down, Paktor's co-founder Charlene Koh only has one goal - to make a difference in somebody's life.

 

Charlene Koh

 

Hi, I’m Charlene. I co-founded Paktor, one of the mobile dating apps in Singapore. So, Paktor is in about 7 other countries, mainly Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, as well, Bangkok. We are expanding into Japan and Korea this year, so then you’ll be able to actually look for people overseas.

 

For Paktor itself, I meet a lot of different people. There isn’t a day that is the same day, always new things that pop up, you know, new things that I learn. So the ‘Paktor Queen’ doesn’t mean I paktor a lot, it’s the term that they coined for me because I created Paktor and I wanted this platform that actually connects people together. Well, I’ll definitely use my own name when I test the app. A lot of them who actually swipe right on me or talk to me, initially don’t know who I am until they ask me questions like, “Oh, what do you work as?” and I’m like “Oh, I actually co-founded Paktor”, and they are like “No way!”. Or he’s like, “Oh, you’re joking.” and I’m like “No, no, no, no, no, no”.

 

Gaigai runs very differently from Paktor, Paktor is all online but Gaigai is offline. Umm, the reason why we wanted to have Gaigai was because we felt that being an offline service, you have more criterias, you are a bit more sophisticated. The interview with each of our clients for Gaigai lasts about an hour. There’s a long list of questions that we go through because we actually protect our clients’ interests here as well.

 

Looking good is making a good impression. I go to the gym quite often, I listen to a lot of house, a lot of trance, a lot of EDM tunes as well. It gets the beat going, gets you sweating and gets me motivated to actually work out harder. Being in a first date as well, you need to also watch your dating etiquette - the way that you speak, the way that you actually present yourself.

 

So, Fleek image was born in about October last year. It is our image consulting arm that actually help singles, you know, to look better and to feel good about themselves too. I wear a lot of tones, my colour is actually warm autumn colours. I do not wear things like green, it makes you look a bit sullen, you know, it makes you look unhealthy. You actually help people, I actually feel more fulfilled and contented at the end of the day and you know, when you go back home, I’m happy because I have tried to make a difference in somebody’s life and I look forward to working the next day.

Apple's iPhone X queue is insane

Sure, the iPhone X costs quite a bit. But that did not stop the crowd from queuing for almost two days to be the first few to get it. Meanwhile, Oppo is drawing some attention from the iPhone X launch with its own Oppo R11s. As is Razer, which just announced its powerful Razer Phone. LG is also in the game for smartphone dominance, and it'll have the LG V30+ ready by December.

Everything you need to know about the Huawei Mate 10 series

What happens in Munich, doesn't stay in Munich! Because Timothy brought the Huawei Mate 10 Pro back, and it's coming soon to a store near you. And what's a new smartphone without a new pair of headphones, with two to choose from Klipsch. Your new smartphone also needs 20GB of data, which Circles.Life is going to give to you for free (till the end of this year). To round it all off, get the UBTECH First Order Stormtrooper robot, for both educational purposes and some fun!

tech360.tv news roundup - Week 2 October

By: Eve Goh

 

There's no lack of cinemas in Singapore. But one that has laser projection? That's something new. But if you're catching an Uber to watch a show at the new Golden Village cineplex, don't make the driver wait too long, else you'll have to pay a penalty. Such irony, that drivers aren't penalised for making passengers wait. Speaking of irony, guess who's making money from the upcoming Apple iPhone X? Samsung, which will stand to earn US$110 per iPhone X sold! The bigger question is - will the iPhone X be more popular or Google's upcoming Pixel 2 XL, which is finally available in more countries.
