We've got your September settled with ultra-affordable smartphones, virtual reality, and all the online shopping you can handle.
And as you may have noticed, this month's cover is special. Being a tech mag, quick changes are something we deal with very often, and that includes with the magazine itself. Not having a model on the cover means we’re able to dedicate everything in the magazine to actual content, and and it’s all for you, our readers.
That doesn’t mean we’ll never have have people on the front ever again though; we’ll just be tailoring the cover to best suit whatever’s in the issue that month. We’d love to hear what you think about this, so give us a shout on Facebook or Twitter with your views. Or sign in above, and leave a note in the comments section, below.
The new smartphone superpower
In a short few months, Xiaomi has quickly risen to become the third most popular smartphone brand in Singapore behind Apple and Samsung. That’s phenomenal success, and proof that China is quickly becoming the new tech nation to watch. Our cover story this month looks at the various smartphone brands coming out of China, and what they could mean to you.
Shop but don’t drop
It’s long been said that Singapore’s national pastime is shopping. However, not everyone likes having elbows jabbed into their ribs every time there’s a sale. In fact, we’re pretty sure nobody likes that. So our Ultimate Guide to Online Shopping has all the knowledge you need to buy whatever you want without even leaving the house.
Virtual Reality has come a long way since James Lye decided to offend our sensibilities and eyeballs as the Singapore’s lamest super hero. With headsets like the Oculus Rift and Sony’s Project Morpheus taking things to completely new levels, you might soon find yourself exploring the surface of Mars right from the comfort of your couch. See the endless possibilities for yourself, as well as the hardware that makes it all possible.
