Download: Pixel 3 Launcher APK For Android Now Available

By | October 11th, 2018

If you feel the need to do so, you can now download the Pixel Launcher experience from Google’s latest Pixel 3 smartphone. The Launcher comes with some minimal but worthwhile changes and is accessible right now by downloading the APK pulled from the Pixel 3 handset.

It’s worth noting that Google hasn’t made any real radical changes as far as the Pixel Launcher experience is concerned with its Pixel 3 hardware. The changes are relatively minimal in nature but should be enough to keep some Android users happy who haven’t been particularly enthused about the small changes which have been made with Android P Developer Preview 5.

Most notably, with that aforementioned release, Google decided to inexplicably remove the small voice icon that lived in the Google Search bar and was used to invoke the Assistant experience. With the Pixel 3 Launcher experience, this button is now back but takes on the shiny new form of an actual Assistant-themed button that lives in the exact same place as the previous voice icon in the Google pill-shaped drawer.

The new Pixel 3 Launcher also shows that an adaptive icon experience is now forced on all icons and all apps that are installed on the device and accessible via the Launcher. This might not seem like much but it immediately gives that part of the UI a uniform and more symmetrical look and feels rather than having some adaptive icons and some that have been created to the developer’s imagination.

Other than those two things, other changes within the Pixel 3 Launcher are extremely minimal and include additional space being padded between elements in the application switcher as well as a relatively tiny arrow being added above the pill-shaped Google search field. Most people wouldn’t even notice these things unless they were actively comparing side-by-side differences to see changes and amends.

Still, if you are an Android enthusiast who loves to try out the newest toys and changes within the ecosystem, then you can grab the Pixel 3 Launcher APK now from here, and sideload it onto your compatible Android device.

If you do download the experience and give it a try, make sure to highlight any changes that you manage to find in this new launcher.

Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee 德明叉烧云吞面 @ Dunman Food Centre – Shiokness in the plate

Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee德明叉烧云吞面 @ Dunman Food Centre – Shiokness in the plate

There are two popular wanton stalls housed in Dunman Food Centre, at the lower deck, you can find the famous Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Mee luring its loyal customers, on the upper deck, Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee – another wanton mee stall that too flexing its arms to entice the customers with its plates of alluring wanton noodles.

We tried both the stalls and here is our verdict. You can read our review on Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Mee here.

Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee serves the same wanton mee but in a completely different style.

Topping is the usual char siew and boiled chye sim, the noodle do not have the usual yellowish eggy look but more pale yellow in look compared to many other wanton mee stalls. The four plates of noodle we ordered were all cooked to the al dente texture, it has the right firmness and yet springy noodle texture and was a pleasant to the taste buds.

The noodle was tossed with the sesame oil, soy sauce and same broth from the bowl of accompanied soup for the extra flavour, a spoonful of Chili sauce was served aside with the noodle, the bright red chili sauce is the killer here with its ferociously tongue burning kicks, the presentation and style reminded us the close resemblance of the famous Eng Wanton Mee – a stall with its legacy started from this humble food centre as well but has since grown into a well established restaurant along Tajor Katong Road.

Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee may be slightly more tame with the seasoning compared to Eng Wanton Mee which is more robust in taste but the flavour is good enough to win our hearts over, the burning chili sauce somehow able to provide the “shiokness” which is something we don’t be able to feel it with its lower deck rival – Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Mee.

The wanton are filled with flavourful fillings though the char siew was just ordinary.

The fiercely chili sauce may pose a challenge for some but if you would like to enjoy a plate of good wanton noodle full with shiokness, Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee will able to give you the edge over Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Mee from many aspects of a good wanton noodle, be it the noodle texture, seasoning and chili sauce or the delectable wanton.

The only setback we experienced with Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee is the poor consistency in getting the right sweetness and flavour of the soup. The bowl of soup was tastier in the subsequent visit compared to our first visit a week before which was completely bland and mediocre, this is an area for the stall to pay more the attention since the noodle was tossed with the same base soup and that could affect the overall taste to some extent.

Our verdict
Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Mee may be captured a large pool of followers but our hearts are unequivocally leaning towards Dunman Char Siew Wanton Mee, we like the texture of the noodle, the sweating hot chili sauce and the overall satisfaction of the taste that we received from the plate of wanton mee.

Overall Rating: 4.2 / 5.0

Google Announces Pixel 3, Pixel Slate Tablet, New Chromecast, Home Hub, More

By | October 10th, 2018

After weeks of leaks, Google today took to stage in New York to share information about what was already leaked into oblivion, but you’ve got to give the company props for turning up at least.

During the “Made by Google” event we were treated to a raft of new hardware devices, all building on existing categories and devices while adding Google’s usual flair for machine learning and algorithmic software improvements. There’s a fair bit to get through here, so let’s get started.

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Both of these devices were leaked and then leaked some more recently, and they’re both now official. The 5.5-inch Pixel 3 and 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL are both what we expected, with the Pixel 3XL having the huge notch that we’ve seen in the aforementioned leaks. There’s also a sizeable chin to be had, which is interesting considering Google’s claims of an edge-to-edge display.

Regardless, the phone does still look pretty good to us. The biggest thing of note is the camera system, with a new HDR+ mode as well as Top Shot, a feature that will automatically capture multiple shots with HDR+ enabled and then pick the best one. Night Sight will also enable the Pixel 3 phones to take better images at night, with Google comparing the results to photos taken on an iPhone XS.

Editable Portrait mode images are also here, allowing the depth of field to be changed just like the iPhone XS. The second camera on the front of the Pixel 3 enables a new group selfie feature, with Google claiming that it captures 184% more of the scene than, you guessed it, the iPhone XS.

There have been improvements to the AI side of things, with Google Assistant now being able to receive your call if you’re unable to answer it, and converse in real time asking the caller to leave a message if they wish to. All of this happens live, and the phone also transcribes the conversation for you to read.

And, wait for it; we have wireless charging people! A new Qi-compatible Pixel Stand will also be available for $ 79.

The Pixel 3 is up for pre-order now and goes on sale on October 18th in the US and select other countries, starting at $ 799 for the $ 64GB, and $ 899 for the 128GB. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $ 899 for the 64GB, and $ 999 for the 128GB, with both phones available in the horrendously named Just Black, Clearly White and Not Pink.

Google Home Hub

Another smart speaker, but with a display built right in just like the Echo Show, the Home Hub has a 7-inch touchscreen although no camera is included. That’s apparently a decision Google took to allow people to trust the device enough to have it in bedrooms, although it obviously means there is no video calling option.

There’s a heavy focus on smart home integration too, with a HomeKit-like Home View section that will act as a place for things like smart lights and thermostats to hang out, having them all in one place to make it easier to interact with them. The Google Home Hub will cost $ 149 when it goes on sale on October 22nd.

Google Pixel Slate

Continuing its push for Chrome OS, Google’s new Pixel Slate is a tablet with a keyboard attachment that allows it to act like a notebook. Dual front-facing speakers should be good for watching movies, and the 12-hour battery life will be well received. The 12.3-inch display is apparently a Molecular Display, with a resolution working out at 293ppi.

Chrome OS itself has been tweaked to work with the tablet, including new split screen modes as well as deeper integration with Google Assistant. A new nightlight feature will also reduce blue light during the evening. Starting at $ 599, the Pixel Slate will go on sale later this year with the Slate Keyboard costing $ 199. A new Pixelbook Pen will also be available, costing $ 99.

Chromecast

It’s been three years since Google gave the Chromecast some love, but a new third-generation model has been announced as part of the event. There’s a change in logo, but the important thing is that Google says the new version is 15% faster with added support for 60fps 1080p video.

The Chromecast can now also be used like a Chromecast Audio, with synced music streaming via any other speaker connected via Google’s growing collection of smart devices. There’s still no 4K support, so the updated device remains $ 35.

Waku Ghin The Executive Lunch

I have been to Waku Ghin several times in the past and the experience has always been quite extraordinary.  This should be expected of any two Michelin star restaurant, especially when you have to fork out almost $ 1k for a dinner for two. This is the kind of restaurant that one goes to to celebrate special life events or when you really have impress a significant other.

The typical dinner service comprise of 10 courses which is served in private rooms where the chef will prepare your meals on a Teppanyaki hotplate.  At the beginning of the meal, they will bring out a box to show you the fresh seafood that will be used for during the course of the meal.

Waku Ghin has always been a dinner affair, but recently they have started their Executive lunch which are served on Fridays from 12-2pm.  The lunch comprise of 5 courses, 4 mains and one dessert and cost $ 180++.  They have also introduced several new items that are served at The Bar area outside where you can order ala carte dishes like wagyu don and toasted parma ham and black truffle sandwiches together with cocktails.


Pasta with botan shrimp, white truffles, uni and Oscietra caviar

The first course for lunch was cold pasta with botan shrimp, white truffles, uni and Oscietra caviar which is tried and tested combination which you really can’t go wrong with.


Pan seared Ayu with tade sauce

This was followed by a Japanese classic of fillet of  pan seared ayu served with a tade-zu.  Chef explained to us that tade, aka water pepper is a plant usually found along the banks of the river where you also find ayu, so it is a natural complement for the fish.  It’s quite a luxury having the ayu fish filleted instead of served whole as they generally tend to be quite small.  The ones at Waku ghin are quite substantial and you can really appreciate the delicate sweetness in the flesh.


Seafood bouillabaisse

No surprises with the seafood bouillabaisse except that the lobster, scallop and snapper were all pan seared on the teppanyaki hotplate and the soup constructed with much finesse in front of us.


Ohmi wagyu

Again, no surprises with the treatment of the ohmi wagyu.  They were seared to perfection and served with freshly grated 3 year old Shizuoka wasabi.  I don’t think I have come across anyone trying to serve top quality wagyu sirloin steak in any other way.   It is perfect when it has developed a thin crust on the outside while the middle of the steak has warmed up so that the oleaginous juices burst out between your teeth with each bite!

After the main courses, we moved to the lounge area where dessert was served together with you choice of tea and coffee.   This is a hallmark of the whole Waku Ghin experience.

Conclusion

The executive lunch is a good introduction to Waku Ghin’s dining concept, offering half of the dinner course at less than half of the price. The courses are well executed and the produce was top notch, but don’t expect any real surprises.  There are no funky foams or textural transformation of produce, just very good ingredients simply presented.

Disclosure
This was a media tasting.  That means the food was provided with no obligations. No fee as paid for the review.  We do not write any paid review for restaurants and eateries.

Google+ Shutting Down Over Next 10 Months Following Data Breach Coverup

By | October 9th, 2018

Apparently keen to prove that Facebook isn’t the only company that can get itself into boiling hot water over privacy and data, Google has today joined the club by confirming that a Google+ security bug allowed third-party developers to access user data unimpeded, with the issue dating all the way back to 2015. To make matters worse, Google decided not to share knowledge of the data breach when it was discovered in March.

The issue apparently came about when a user granted permission to an app, allowing it to access their public data. The problem was that this also gave those same developers access to the user’s friends’ non-public profiles. In turn, this meant that almost 500,000 users’ names, email addresses, dates of birth, gender, location, occupation, and relationship status were made available to developers, all without their knowledge. Google says that there was no evidence that the information was misused, but that a total of 438 apps had access.

All of this has led Google to finally admit Google+ was a failure, with the company announcing that it will close over the next ten months with a pivot to the enterprise market in the cards. There are additional privacy moves in motion here, too, with Google’s Project Strobe security audit also meaning most third-party developers will no longer be able to access Android SMS data, call logs, and (some) contact information. Gmail add-on access will also be restricted to a small number of developers as part of the moves.

As part of admitting Google+ didn’t get things quite right, the company admits that “this review crystallized what we’ve known for a while: that while our engineering teams have put a lot of effort and dedication into building Google+ over the years, it has not achieved broad consumer or developer adoption, and has seen limited user interaction with apps. The consumer version of Google+ currently has low usage and engagement: 90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds.”

Frankly, I’m surprised the numbers are that favorable.

Restoran Tian Lai – One of the Best Seafood Restaurants in Gelang Patah

Restoran Tian Lai

[JOHOR BAHRU, MALAYSIA] Looking for a good seafood restaurant near Second Link? Restoran Tian Lai (天来海鲜) is a good option. A friend of mine drove us here for lunch and he was raving non-stop about the Kam Heong Crabs.

Restoran Tian Lai 1
Restoran Tian Lai 2

The restaurant offers a wide range of seafood dishes cooked in different ways. Crab dishes are the restaurant’s signature and I’ll definitely recommend Restoran Tian Lai to those who love fresh and delicious crabs. If you’re craving for fresh crabs in a creamy and spicy sauce, then the Salted Egg Crabs is a safe bet. The juicy crab meat was chunky and sweet, and literally finger-licking good.

I highly recommend the Kam Heong Crabs as we can’t really find this dish in Singapore. Made with good quality dried shrimps and aromatic curry powder,  the elaborate dish was really tasty and addictive. You can also taste the freshness and sweetness of the crab meat. Initially, I thought it was black pepper crab. I took a bite and was wowed by the combination of spicy, savoury and sweet notes. I couldn’t resist scooping the sauce onto my rice.

Restoran Tian Lai 3

The curry pork ribs (RM15) is another popular dish in the restaurant. The curry was thick and fragrant, rich and robust, and was somewhat similar to rendang. It wasn’t too spicy and the meat was fork tender.

Restoran Tian Lai iPiccy-collage1
Restoran Tian Lai 4

You probably think we had a table of 10 after looking at the photos. But actually, there were only 4 hungry people. To complement the dishes, we also ordered Otak (RM12), Stir Fried Eggs with Bittergourd (RM 8) and Marmite Chicken (RM 10). The steamed otak had a slightly creamy texture and chunks of fish. The Marmite Chicken appeared all dressed in a sticky and beautiful glaze.

Restoran Tian Lai 5

Restoran Tian Lai 6

You won’t go wrong with the Mee Goreng. I am not a big fan of Mee Goreng (RM 9) to be honest, but the version here was stir-fried till perfection and served with bean curd, bean sprouts etc. It was super filling! The San Lou Bee Hoon (RM 9), which was topped with lots of ingredients, was slightly charred, and was armed with a strong wok hei,

Restoran Tian Lai is one of the best seafood restaurants in Gelang Patah. There isn’t much of a view here, unlike at Todak Seafood Restaurant, but the prices here are pretty affordable, and the restaurant is very near Singapore.

Address: 158 Jalan Leong Bee, Gelang Patah 81550, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

Phone: +60 7-510 1521

Opening Hours: 12pm to 11pm, closed on alternate Mondays

These Bluetooth Earphones Are Truly Wireless And Come With Charging Case, Costs 1/3rd The Price Of AirPods

By | October 7th, 2018

Apple’s AirPods are super popular and for very good reason indeed. We’re huge fans of AirPods, as we know you are, but there’s no denying the fact that they are not exactly cheap. The same goes for many competitors, including the recently reviewed Crazybaby Air 1S. They may sound good, but they’re just out of reach of many people and that makes them useless.

Thankfully there are more reasonably priced alternatives, like these truly wireless earphones available right now.

Coming in Black and White color variants and costing just $ 59 from here when using coupon code TRULYWRLS20OFF at check out, these earphones are around a third of the amount of cash you’d expect to hand over if you were picking up the aforementioned AirPods. In fact, if you take advantage of a deal, you can grab 2 (both in white and black colors!) for just $ 54.95 each from here if you use special coupon code TRULYWRLS109 at check out.

So what do you get for your money? Well, you get a pair of earphones with Bluetooth 4.2 support, along with a battery life of around three hours with standby time of up to 200 hours. The carrying case also charges the earphones, itself also being charged by the ubiquitous micro-USB cable that we all have hundreds of already.

The earphones themselves are touch sensitive, meaning you can power them on or off, accept or reject calls and carry out music playback controls without having to pull your smartphone out of your pocket. Oh and they are water-proof as well!

They also come with extra earpieces that should mean that you can find the perfect fit, something that AirPods owners will no doubt be jealous of. If you’ve not almost lost an AirPod earpiece because it fell out of your ear, you’re probably not moving enough!

All in all these are a great alternative at a budget price, so if you want the convenience of AirPods without spending so much cash, here’s a perfect option for you.

Buy: Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones With Long Battery Life And Charging Case: $ 59.95 using coupon code TRULYWRLS20OFF | Original price: $ 99.95

Buy: x2 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones With Long Battery Life And Charging Case: $ 54.95 each using coupon code TRULYWRLS109 | Original price: $ 199.95

Old Amoy Chendol – The Best Chendol I’ve Ever Had

I am more of a hot dessert kind of person. So when I try a cold dessert, it has to be (very) good for me to like it. I don’t fancy chendol, but somehow, Old Amoy Chendol made me a convert.

You Ning, the owner, shared with me that when he returned to Singapore from China last year, he was craving for chendol, but couldn’t find good ones around. It then struck him to set up a chendol stall that serves authentic chendol. He then learnt the ropes from his already-retired grandfather, who sold chendol on a pushcart along Amoy Street back in the 1950s. And, that’s how Old Amoy Chendol got its name!

Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0164
Don’t expect to see other desserts here. Old Amoy Chendol serves only chendol. The chendol is built with shaved ice, red beans, pandan worm-like jelly, coconut milk and gula melaka. Old Amoy Chendol apart uses only good quality ingredients, and everything is made from scratch daily. You Ning claimed that it’s really hard work, but such dedication is crucial in the creation of a great bowl of chendol.

Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0190
Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0189
You Ning travels to Sarawak often to source for gula melaka, and he hand-carries them back. You can rest assured that you’re getting only the best. There are absolutely no additives in the gula melaka, and the coconut milk is 100% cold-pressed. Even the red beans are cooked fresh daily.

Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0170
Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0172
Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0174
I wasn’t sure how good chendol can get, but Old Amoy Chendol sure showed me how great this dessert can actually be. I polished off the entire bowl, and it didn’t feel too heavy.  The coconut taste was strong, but not overpowering. The gula melaka was especially fragrant, rich, and smoky. The red beans were soft, and not cloyingly sweet. Every ingredient was like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle — ordinary on its own, but beautiful altogether.

“Some people ask why don’t I add more ingredients like durian or attap seeds to my chendol. You don’t need a lot to draw a crowd. Simple is best,” You Ning expressed. I totally agree.

Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0202
Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0208
Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0177
Old Amoy Chendol IMG_0212
They don’t compromise on the ingredients and taste, so $ 2 for a bowl is a real steal, in my opinion. It is no doubt the best chendol I’ve ever tasted. Drop by Chinatown Complex Food Centre for a taste of traditional and authentic chendol! The friendly aunty will ask about your desired level of sweetness for your chendol, so you don’t have to worry about it being insufficiently or overly sweet. The food centre is huge and you may get lost, so take note that the stall is located in the light-yellow zone.

Luca Todesco Successfully Jailbreaks iPhone XS Max Running iOS 12

By | October 7th, 2018

Italian developer and renowned jailbreaker Luca Todesco is back with some news that will delight the jailbreak community. The enigmatic and often abrasive developer has once again taken to Twitter to confirm that he has successfully jailbroken his new iPhone XS Max hardware running iOS 12.

In terms of actually jailbreaking iOS 12, Todesco is a little way behind the China-based Pangu Team which confirmed back in September that it had managed to successfully jailbreak iOS 12 running on Apple’s iPhone XS.

Todesco had also confirmed that his iOS 12 beta hack was still relevant in the production release of iOS 12 but was waiting on getting his hands on iPhone XS Max to validate whether or not there were any hardware concerns or restrictions in place that would thwart his attempts. We now have that confirmation:

since I’m finally done hacking the Xs Max I started using it as my daily driver and I gotta say it’s a damn fine piece of hardware.

The subsequent replies to the tweet show confirmation from Todesco that he has managed to successfully jailbreak the iPhone XS Max and that he has restored the device back to running stock iOS firmware and is currently using the hardware as his main device. As expected, the Italian was also pushed by his followers on whether or not a jailbreak would be released into the community to support Apple’s latest hardware and firmware combinations but there was no reply forthcoming to either confirm or deny whether or not that would happen.

As we know, Todesco was the developer responsible for the Yalu and Yalu102 jailbreaks and has provided a lot of value to the community outside of those releases. With that said, whether or not he will pick up where Yalu left off and once again contribute to the community in the form of an iOS 12 jailbreak is entirely up for debate.

One thing is for sure; there is a lot of attention being paid to Apple’s iOS 12 platform and definitely enough interest to suggest that we will be able to welcome a jailbreak into the world sooner rather than later.

As always, if anything progresses on this we will be sure to keep you informed.

GoPro Just Launched Its Most Stable Camera Ever And Are Giving Away A Million Dollars For Your Videos

GoPro HERO7 Black features

gopro hero 7 product shot review

Whether you’re testing your limits on an off-road adventure on the slopes of an active volcano or braving the crowds at the Chatuchak weekend market – GoPro’s latest HERO7 Black is here to prove that it’s the only camera you need to document any kind of holiday. 

The all-new HERO7 Black ($ 595) delivers a host of new features such as in-camera video stabilization and direct live streaming and is available at authorised retailers Challenger, Harvey Norman, and Courts. Here are some features we’re currently lusting over:

HyperSmooth Video Stabilisation

This viral video in which a seal slapped a kayaker with an octopus was filmed with a GoPro HERO7 Black. Check out how stable the footage is when the slap happens, even in choppy waters!

Anybody with an interest in videography can tell you that camera stabilisers don’t come cheap. And worse, they’re bulky-looking gizmos you don’t want to be seen with or be lugging around while you’re out soaking up all the world has to offer.

Here’s a comparison between an older GoPro model and the HERO7 Black

Perfect for vlogging enthusiasts and professionals alike, the inbuilt HyperSmooth function on HERO7 Black takes the cake for the best in-camera video stabilization ever seen in a camera. So no matter your skill level, you can always expect the end-result to look professional and fuzz-free. 

Better still, HyperSmooth has been put to the test and will even deliver the best video quality underwater or when in high-shock and wind.

Time Warp – a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your videos

gopro stabiliser

This video was made with us running, no stabilisers used. Low image quality is due to image compression on TSL. 

Similar to the hyperlapse function on our smartphones, the HERO7 Black also comes equipped with a TimeWarp video function that applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your footage minus the noise and vibrations.

Direct Camera-Facebook Live Streaming

The HERO7 Black lets you upgrade your live stream videos beyond the limits of your smartphone with their Live Streaming function. Share your adventures in real time and in HD to all your social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and more. Your live footage is also saved to your SD card in high resolution should you need to go back and edit it further.

IG addicts will be thrilled by the portrait mode for native vertical-capture in wet, rough or snowy conditions that allows for easy sharing on Instagram Stories and Snapchat.

Win a cut of $ 1,000,000 USD with the GoPro HERO7 Black

When it comes to packing for an upcoming holiday, a camera is as much of a necessity as clothes and toiletries. After all, did you really have a hell of a time if you don’t have the pictures/video footage to prove it?

If you’re looking to upgrade your old point-and-shoot camera or purchase a versatile new one to document your travel, the HERO7 Black might be just the camera your tech dreams are made of. That upgrade also makes you eligible to join the GoPro Million Dollar Challenge and get a cut of the USD$ 1,000,000 up for grabs.

This is what you’ll need to do:

  1. Get a HERO7 Black
  2. Take a shot you’d be proud of
  3. Submit to www.gopro.com/MillionDollarChallenge
  4. If your shot is selected to be in the HERO7 Black highlight video, you get a cut of the million dollars

And along with the HERO7 Black, GoPro is also releasing the HERO7 Silver ($ 440) and HERO7 White ($ 295) with similar features perfect for entry and mid-level users.
