• iPad Pro Screen Shuttered, What You Should Know, If You Have One

    Being a really nice father, I passed my iPad Pro (10.5) to our daughter on Sunday evening, while I was doing the house chores.  She will use it to watch kids program on Netflix, which we have setup an account for her. So, she watched something, so excited, dropped it, and the screen shuttered, even I had a glass protector on. Well, as you can see from the picture, it is pretty bad. I contacted Apple Care, was told it is not covered under the warranty.  So was quoted RM2,600 for the replacement.  Being a China man, I opted to search around where I could have the screen changed.  Got…

  • Looking for cord holder, don’t waste your money

    Bought a Quirky Cord Management from Machines last week, as I thought I finally found a cord holder or alike for my work desk.  Anyway, it turned out to be rather disappointing.  Quirky does not have a surface resistance, which will stay foot while on the desk.  I suppose it does not suit my needs, which is to organise all my cables on the desk without creating a major mess.  I like to be neat, most of the time. I don’t like searching for cables, if the cables fell off the desk.  Most of the cables on my desk do not need to move with me while I am away…

    “Is that an iPad2?” senior pastor asked me this morning while at church. “It is iPad, first generation.” I replied. “Is that an iPad2?” a senior church leader asked. “No.  Still using iPad, first generation.” I answered. “Do you know how Pastor XXX (to remain anonymous so to maintain the integrity of the said person) got his iPad2?” one asked me. “He saw the long waiting line and went straight to Machines at Mid Valley and told the shop assistant that he wanted to launch a complaint about the way how they handle the sales resulted long waiting line.  Do you expect a 70+ man to stand in line to buy an…

  • Mac + Me, 1st Sharing in MacFest

    When Azul, one of the founding members of Malaysia Mac User Group, or better known as MyMUG, first contacted me about being one of the speaker for upcoming MyMUG MacFest, meeting for Mac users once every two months, I was surprised and honored, simply I am still a rather ‘green’ Mac user.  However, I accepted the suggestion and take it as an experience of a life time. I suggested to Azul maybe I could do a sharing on how I use Mac at work.  Thus that was how ‘Mac+Me’ came about. Sharing session comprises of how Mac could be used in an environment where most counterparts are Windows users. “Windows…

  • Last MyMUG’s MacFest of 2009

    Elijah told me in advance that he wanted to stay at home to accompany Retna and Inez.  I believe it was mainly driven by he would then be able to watch Merlin on Hallmark all for himself without interference from Ariel (evil father’s thought). Ariel went with me to Machines at One Utama (Old Wing) to attend the MyMUG’s MacFest, which signifies the last gathering for the Malaysian Mac User Group for 2009.  By the way, MyMUG holds such gathering once every two months.  The attendees are mainly the hardcore, amateur, new user as well as anyone who is keen to find out or to explore Mac before becoming a…
