HP TouchPads selling at SGD$118 and SGD$188 at Comex for 1st and 2nd Day!

Crazy sale of HP TouchPads will be at Comex for the first 2 days. You will be able to get 16gb HP TouchPad for $118(without GST) and $188 for 32gb model. This kind of price for a tablet you will not be able to get anywhere else. HP will only be selling 100 sets per day per model. So if you wish to get 1, better be there early.

For me.. I was considering and thinking, I don’t really have a workflow for this HP TouchPad. It is a no brainer buy, just $118 for a 16gb TouchPad. But I don’t have any use for it… Put up as a digital photo album? Web surfing device? I really think of a good reason or use case for it. So, after considering, this $118 I will keep and purchase Canon 50mm 1.8 Lens instead. I think it will definitely be of more use for me than a extra tablet siting at home. Although I can’t deny the fact that I really wish to try out WebOS.

Real Life Portal – No Escape [Video]

Love Creative Video, This is really very creative and nicely shot. If you have played Portal or Portal 2 Game, you will love this video even more. Portal is about a “gun” which you can shot an entrance and an exit, you can be creative on how you create the door and the exit, and be able to achieve crazy impossible stunt. Check out the video, and check out the game if possible too!

When is China’s Bubble bursting? China’s Ghost Mall and City [Video]

After watching this clip, make me feel that Singapore might be going through some of the very familiar stuff, but our government really did handle stuff much better. Although things are getting more expensive, flats are costing more and more, but government tried to help but offering affordable loans, and long payment period.

For China, a flat cost almost as much as Singapore(I mean city area like Beijing), but their flats have to be fully paid in 3 years. Compare to Singapore 30 years loan period, it is really heaven and earth. What’s your thoughts?

Happy Birthday Singapore 2011!
