now TV becomes available on PlayStation®3

This news is really interesting. In Hong Kong, PCCW can now be watched over your PlayStation 3. So, you won't need to rent a box to watch it if you already have a PS3. Rather cool isn't it.

LG GW620 Video Preview

Looking for an Android phone that has a QWERTY keyboard. Motorola Milestone, HTC Dream(G1) are not the only available. Check out the LG GW620 aka EVE in Canada. It is coming to Europe and Asia in JAN 2010.

Motorola Milestone coming to Singapore in Jan 2010 ?

There has been rumours of the Motorola Milestone coming to Singapore in Jan 2010. Anyway, the highly anticipated phone is already launched in Hong Kong last week at a retail price of HKD 4680. Here are some pictures of the phone reported by other online media.

All Starhub TV channels are FREE to WATCH from Boxing Day

On Boxing Day, Starhub TV went bonkers. From 9am to 1pm, a lot of subscribers were complaining that they were unable to receive any channels on TV.

There were lots of complains on the net and on radio too as most people can't get through their customer hotline. Some waited for nearly 2 hours before they give up.

Starhub, probably out of good will, enabled all the channels for all customers. All channels can be watched except Ch 88/89 Horse Racing and Ch 602 HBO HD. The VOD titles are not FREE though.

I suspect it will last another few more days before they rectify the problem in the backend.

Anyway, it is nice to have a view of what the other 100+ channels is all about.

No more more than 24 months contract for Internet and phone contracts

Singapore Channel News Asia reports that there is a new ruling from March 2010. Those who apply for or renew contract for fixed line, mobile or broadband service cannot be locked into the contract for more than 24 months.

In addition, those who terminate their contracts before the end of their contract period will no longer have to pay fixed early termination charges. Instead, they will see these charges decrease over time on a month-by-month basis as they serve out their contract.
