Samsung Star S5233S Unboxed

Relevance: 67%      Posted on: May 24, 2009

When I first receive this Samsung Star (Samsung S5233S) last week, I thought the LG Cookie has found a new competitor in the affordable full touch screen phone segment. Check out the pictures I took after the jump. Labeled under the Samsung S5230 line, the Samsung Star doesn't have much in connectivity -- no 3G, no WiFi, no GPS -- but has a full 3.0-inch (240x400 pixels) touch screen. It's gonna be very affordable and will target Samsung fans looking to try a touchscreen phone without putting a hole in the pocket. Haven't gotten the official price yet but expect…

Samsung Star S5233 vs. LG Cookie KP500

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: July 7, 2009

A lot of people are asking which of these two entry-level touchscreen phones is better -- the new Samsung S5233 Star or the older LG Cookie KP500 -- and I'd say they are just brothers from a different mother. Check out the comparative chart below and you'd be surprised how much specs these two phones share with each other. They're like clones -- down to the thickness. Of course, the LG Cookie got beaten in the charts by the Samsung Star with a minuscule difference in internal memory, VGA recording and battery rating. The LG Cookie is about 500 bucks…

Moo Mini Cards: An Expensive Lesson in Proofreading

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: July 22, 2008

I've been an avid fan of the Moo cards ever since they went online. The business/calling cards are of high quality and each one is unique so even if they're coming in from London and are a little expensive, I ordered 3 boxes. With all that excitement, I forgot to proofread my submission. It's an expensive mistake. All 300 cards have a typo with the mobile number. Now, either I throw them away or invest in a nice White-Out and spend hours cleaning out the errors. Maybe the latter.

PQI Air Drive turns regular SD cards into Wireless cards

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: April 2, 2013

There are already a number of WiFi-enabled SD cards like EyeFi but they're still very expensive. PQI is doing another approach in making SD cards accessible wirelessly -- make the portable card reader WiFi capable. At first, I thought the idea was kind of useless -- why would you access the SD card reader over WiFi when you can just plug it to the USB port of your laptop or PC? Then, some other typical scenario presented itself -- what if you took a long video in your camera and stored it directly into the SD card. If you want…

Back in January, Alcatel unveiled their new product line called One Touch with the flag bearer being the 6.9mm thin Idol Ultra.

There’s also a 5MP camera at the back which is couple by a 2MP on the other side just…

Ever wanted to do everything on a smartphone with the power of your voice? Chinese handset maker ZTE wants to make your wish come true as it announced today the Star 2, a 5-inch smartphone in a 6.9 millimeter-thick casing that features a very extensive voice control function as its main feature. This voice function ZTE Star 2 touts to have isn't just an ordinary app like Google Now, Apple's Siri, or Microsoft's Cortana, but is wrapped around its whole system. For example, you can use voice commands to open, switch, or close apps; call anyone by speaking their name upon…

Samsung Star S5233 Review

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: June 4, 2009

After trying out the Samsung Star (S5233) for over a week, I must say that this entry-level full touchscreen phone from Samsung comes as a contender in that category. The first time I powered up the phone and saw the UI, it reminded me of the Android OS. Samsung's TouchWiz UI is fast, responsive and pretty slick. The screen is a full 3 inches with a resolution of 240x400 pixels. The display is bright and crisp while the haptic feedback of the touchscreen can be adjusted for sensitivity (1 as subtle to 5 as shaky). This gives you the ability…

Banks shift to EMV-based ATM cards to prevent cloning

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: February 27, 2014

Philippine banks are now beginning to shift from ATM cards with magnetic strip technology to those with EMV chips to further prevent ATM theft. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa. EMV cards have chips embedded inside them which contain information required to authenticate credit and debit card transactions (see Wikipedia for more info). These cards can provide better security compared to magnetic strip-based cards. "The difference between the two is that the information in the magnetic strip is static and permanent, and hence, easy to copy, while EMV chip is more dynamic. Every time you use it, there’s an…
