HTC – You Are Different From You

This is such a brilliant ad campaign. I love the end bit, “That you don’t have to get a phone, you need a phone that gets you” and how the Y and U flips to form the H and C of it’s logo. I can relate to 80% of all the “You Situations” in the ad. Apple need to have a new ad agency. It’s “Hello, I’m a Mac and I’m a PC” ads are getting irritating. (even for a Mac FanBoy like myself). The one for the iPhone 3Gs was so “mission-impossible-ish” – it’s beyond lame. This, on the other hand – relates to human. And not just the damn hardware.

HTC Hero: Gadget + Phone Of The Year

HTC HD2 Renders Hero Obsolete

Okay, HTC. You really gotta stop doing this. Killing off your newly launched products with something that renders everything else obsolete 1 month into it’s lifespan. Now, after watching this. My HTC Hero feels like a freaking 8bit gaming device while the HTC HD2 – a PlayStation 3 Xbox360. Eh, wait a minute. It’s WinMo! And the weather widget is such an OVERKILL! (Sour grapes)

I Miss My WunderRadio


I miss WonderRadio on my iPhone. Being a HTC Hero – I am deprived of the one thing I enjoy most – streaming online radio. Nah, I don’t like stuff on shoutcast, they are boring. I want live radio stations like London’s CapitalFM or Hong Kong’s 903. The thing is, WonderRadio is available on iPhone, Blackberry and even WinMo. Why? Why not Android?

HTC: Peep Is Fixed! Yay!


For the past week or so, HTC Hero’s Twitter app – Peep has been feeling kinda under the weather due to the Twitpocalypse II bug. Not only will it fail to update new tweets from Twitter, it even affected my clock on the homescreen. The weather widget on the clock just doesn’t update. It could be showing a sun and saying partly cloudy at 9:00pm at nite and a moon saying clear sky during lunch. Yeah, it was that wonky. But things are back to how it’s supposed to. HTC twitted about 10 hours ago saying that Peep has been fixed! I almost shed a tear of joy while reading that. Thank you HTC and Twitter …. sniff sniff. I hope I’ll never see that darn error message ever again.
