Ixia Cyber Combat 2018 – Training The Next Generation Of White Hats

By | All, Cybersecurity | No Comments

To many, living in the online world means being free – free to work, study or play in the way they want, when they want, how they like it. However, take a closer look and you’ll realise that this idyllic, online utopia isn’t as free, clean and sparkly as it appears to be. While netizens go about their business, a secret battle rages on behind the scenes. As you’re reading this, hackers are scouring the internet for potential targets. These aren’t just your typical credit card scammers – there are real, organised groups out there who are experts at their craft, seeking to perpetuate their own agendas, be it hacktivism, denial of service (bringing down websites or service providers), and stealing personal information, company data – or even state secrets. What is being done to fight against these new enemies?

Thirty Seven Talk Silka

When you think of 3D models, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality – it’s almost second nature to associate them with the latest VR zombie shootout gallery or the next epic undersea cinematic experience. The future of virtual reality is so much more than just gaming though – these new interactive, immersive technologies have the potential to change the very way we interact with the world around us. We’re at a point of time where design and technology are about to take the next big leap towards a new digital frontier together, allowing us not just to play – but to work and live in a entirely revolutionary way.

In our first episode of Thirty Seven Talks, our new interview series, we speak to Silka Miesnieks, Head of Adobe Design Lab, on the future of immersive technology and the potential for it to impact not just the gaming industry, but change our lives as a whole for the better.

HTC U11 Unboxing & Hands On Review

By | All, Phones | No Comments

Although the HTC has produced mediocre phones over the past few years, they’ve knocked it out of the park with their flagship U11. This rivals the iPhone 8 – if you’re torn between Apple and Android, just get this. It’s got top of the line specs, a beautiful body, fantastic audio, great camera and a very nice form factor.

The programmable ‘edge sense’ squeeze function is extremely useful and better implemented than Samsung’s Bixby-only button. I hate that there’s no headphone jack and the body’s a super fingerprint magnet – battery life is so-so too. Still, i’d say that the HTC U11 performs better than 95% of the Android phones out there. It isn’t revolutionary like the S8, but it’s a wonderful incremental step. HTC sticks to a tried and true form factor and what works.

Moto Z2 Play Unboxing: The Gold Standard For Battery & Innovation

By | All, Phones | No Comments

The Moto Z2 Play’s modular system is awesome – you can attach batteries, wireless charging covers – even a camera with 10x optical zoom. It’s a midranger and doesn’t perform as great as the HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8, but get this – the Moto Z2 Play’s battery life is SICK. The best we’ve seen. Lasts one and a half days or so with 8-10 hours of screen-on time. I left this with the battery mod on and got it to run Netflix with sound for 24 hours. S$799 for the phone, expect to spend about S$100 to S$200 for each mod. Not cheap, but definitely innovative and unique. Stay tuned for our in-depth review!
