It has been a while.

Closure was a path chosen by TGB for his daytime business.  No, TGB didn’t shutdown his official business as which he knows many of his frienemies are wishing …

The fact is, TGB choose to carry on believing what he does best and going at it alone, without any business partners.  Yes, that’s right, took TGB a while, but I have managed to finally secured every last share in my company.

So now that 2 of his 3 legal cases on hands is finally over – bearing that the 3rd Legal Case doesn’t even technically belong to TGB, he just have to help someone get it sorted out … TGB is gonna be back.

Yes, I have missed blogging about new Sony and Microsoft devices.
In fact, I have missed out on the Prime Time to blog about Nokia coming back to the Smartphone world.

Well, better late than never they say.

Up next, Sony’s somewhat-new launch … in TGB’s new possession …

maxresdefaultFinally gotten a chance to use this baby after buying it for nearly two weeks.

Must say, I am impressed with it.

TheGeekyBeng had intend to troll Nokia Singapore during the End May Event at MSFT at One Marina Boulevard. Especially when the whole #GreenDuck invite was sent to us. I am afterall, still a Lumia lover.

Frankly speaking, the Nokia X family devices are, how should i put it nicely, major-atrocity out-of-the-box.  I first encountered the Nokia X in Thailand when I was having my usual monthly pilgrimage to my retirement homeland in early May, took a shot of it and shared it on my Facebook with my friends.  And when Nokia Singapore invited me to experience the XL for myself sometime in the last week of May, I had actually prepared to troll them with my RedMi and Sony Xperia Z2 that night. Opps! Sorry Nokia Singapore!
