Google Discontinues the Nexus One

Due to that, I now officially own a limited edition smartphone! LOL

Honestly whilst I understand why the sales have been poor I still feel this is a wonderful device to own and use everyday. Especially when powered by Android 2.2 it feels much faster & stable.

So long Nexus One, long live Android! 🙂

PROTON’s 25th Anniversary Website

As PROTON officially kicked off its 25th Anniversary celebrations recently with a Gala Dinner, some other events also followed suit. There was the launch of the Limited Edition ‘tiger inspired’ Exora, Persona and Saga. Last week was the refreshed Exora with a new interior colour scheme and exciting Plum Red exterior colour. Today, the official 25th Anniversary website went LIVE and it certainly looks like a happening place to share your stories, participate in contests and read about what’s new relating to the celebration. Click HERE to access the site and be a part of Malaysian automotive history! (and see if you can find my story in there somewhere!)

Featured In thinklab Blog

Back in early August I made 2 posts: ‘thinklab Conference @ National Art Gallery’ and ‘A historic event to remember’ in tribute to a design event organized by thinklab. Throughout the event a lot of photos and videos were taken and I’m grateful an excerpt of my presentation is being published online as part of the thinklab initiative.

“In today’s challenging environment, it is clear the functions and disciplines of old will have to change. Adaptation to new technologies and methods should now not only be of interest, it is a must. Design is one of the disciplines which need to evolve itself at a surgical level and this is due to the nature of the business, which is best described as trend ownership. Designers of today must adapt to new ways of working and also in new ways of thinking. Design plays a critical role in the current economic climate and Designers need to prepare themselves for the future. This is ‘The Next’ as we move towards design sustainability and innovation.”
