ViewQwest: How to choose your ultimate Internet Service Provider?

Most consumers opt for big ISP since they provide attractive standard package. But what if you want something slightly different and more personalized?

The solution is to turn to some of the smaller “boutique” or niche ISPs (eg ViewQwest), where you’ll often find a lot more flexibility in accommodating your needs. Want a fixed IP address so you can access a home server easily? No problem. Or perhaps a genuinely uncapped connection, so you don’t need to worry about usage? Native IPv6 support? Channel bonding over two lines, faster uploads, or ISDN backup? Or even a set of public IP addresses, fully routed to your connection.

All of this is available, if you know where to look.

Ive always loved innovative companies. Viewqwest is one of them as there isnt any other ISP that dare to launch a 2Gbps other than Japan. This means that ViewQwest has no other reference but build the infrastructure and equipment from ground up. I believe the high monthly cost goes to tests, investment into the network to buy more bandwidth, upgrade of equipment and maintaining service level. Other ISP will just copy the tested infrastructure.
Best ISP

For years, ViewQwest has been the only ISP that always provide double the speed of the fastest competitor. From the trends, ViewQwest always launch the new fastest plans 1 year ahead of others. Customers will always be assured that they will always be ahead of the pack.

If you want to be at the fore-front of technology, ViewQwest is the option. I have personally experience ViewQwest Performance, Innovation and Service. I would honestly say that the service is impeccable, at least for me. The constant blazing speed and unlimited overseas content like Netflix blown me away. Sometimes I wished I wouldnt have to sleep so that I can optimize reading and watching the content.

Is this the status of an Ultimate Couch Potato? You decide.
I am glad to have been part of ViewQwest Ultimate Couch Potato Contest and it indeed have improved a portion of my lifestyle. Thanks for the being the best ISP for me and the readers alike!

Getting a new phone and a Samsung TV?

I am privileged to be selected by Hardwarezone to attend a Samsung TV SUHD event in collaboration with Samsung and Harvey Norman.  

Hardwarezone event with Samsung

Vijay the senior editor from Hardwarezone and his team presented useful information on tips to selecting your UHD TV. Selecting sizes and knowing the difference between the fine difference between a true 4k resolution or 2160p. Well we thought that all 4k has the same resoltuion except some better brands has additional bells and whistle with better smart apps, sound, camera or remote.

Here are some of the points shared that I can remember

1.Most consumers don’t know that a cinema display like IMAX will be 21:9 aspect ratio while a a normal TV display is 16:9. We need to know which aspect ratio when we are buying the movie titles.

2. We must note the features of the upscaling and smart TV function is absent in cheaper sets.

3. Samsung enhances the quantum dot technology to s technology called Nano Crystal that gives that vibrant and sharp images that you see.
In addition, the new SUHD smart TVs will have an intelligent SUHD re-mastering engine that optimizes content to enhance the color and brightness reproduction. It automatically analyzes the brightness of the image and diverts power from the darker pixels to the brighter ones. This ultimately helps to improve contrast levels, produce deeper blacks, and an elevated level of brightness over conventional UHD TVs.

2015-04-18 11.18.41samsung-suhd-screen-mirroringThe JS9500 and JS9000 also usher in Samsung’s move to Tizen OS to power its smart TV UI. The Tizen-based SUHD TVs represent Samsung’s efforts to make its smart TVs part of the IoT ecosystem by 2017.

Powering all this is an octa-core processor, which will help the TVs to handle multiple tasks seamlessly. The SUHDs come with a Smart Remote Control, which enables users to intuitively interact with the onscreen UI display and take control of the TVs. In addition, the pricier JS9500 will feature a full-array LED backlight with an increased number of dimming blocks, which should make for better contrast levels and color accuracy over the edge-lit JS9000.

  • Samsung Level On Wireless headphones
  • Samsung Level Link (Bluetooth streaming dongle)

Quadcopter: An idea for a weekend get-away in Singapore

If you are sick of the hustle and bustle of Singapore, perhaps a quick break in the middle of the Pierce reservoir will help. Even the beach and parks are crowded nowadays.

Directions

You just have to head up to Upper Thomson road and make a quick turn into Old Upper Thomson Road. This small road brings you back in time as if there is minimal civilization. I love the winding forested roads that rise steeply up and down. The roads are lined with long tail macaques at they play and roll around the roads.

There will be a pleasant car park at the end of this road where an oasis awaits. Who would guess that the center of Singapore could withstand the rapid urbanization but preserve the natural beauty. It has been a long while since I visited the middle of Pierce Reservoir.


Leisure Activites

This is a perfect getaway from stress and noise of the city. Get your family and friends to pack up some food and have a peaceful picnic by the water. Lots of families are playing Frisbee and soccer with their little ones. Some brought nets and even fishing lines to catch some fishes.

This is also a paradise for budding photographers or those wanting to take graduation/wedding photos. In a short span of an hour I met a bout 4 groups of photographers.

If you are a fitness junkie this is also a beautiful place to have your jogging and cycling accompanied by the beautiful scenery. There use to be a fitness station and playground at the corner but it must have been shifted else where.

As for me, this is good place to fly the quadcopter. It is also where flying enthusiast like me make friends with other flying kakis too. Check out the amateur flying video clip at Pierce Reservoir.
