Calling all you foodies – ChefDB

Friday, November 20th, 2009

The film industry has IMDB. Now the food industry has ChefDB. What a brilliant idea. It’s a database of restaurants, who works in them, where they’ve worked and related links.


Now, you can track your favorite chefs. See when ratings started going up or down.. and why. You can see where else these same people have worked in the past, to find other restaurants that you might want to go to as well. Or where they are headed to in the future, so you can bookmark that as a place you want to try out.

Pure Genius.

iWont iPhone iRegret… just yet.

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Singtel just recently launched the iPhone here in Singapore. I’ve been patiently waiting for it to be released here. Watching all the cool apps that are being released for it that don’t quite work because I have an iPod touch instead of a full iPhone is painful.

However, I don’t think I am going to jump in just yet. The killer app I was waiting for is the Sling Player. And this has not been released yet. On top of that, the data caps that singtel has are too small for me. Their plans are either 1GB, 2GB or 3GB for S$56, S$95 or S$195 respectively. I estimate that if I were to use my Slingbox excessively I would hit somewhere in the neighborhood of 5-8GB of throughput.

Hopefully when M1 or Starhub release the iPhone here in a few months they will relax the restrictions.


Digg got buried.

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Today is a sad and joyous day. I have decided to give up on Digg. I just simply do not have the time to wade through the countless messages to find stuff to read. This is liberating because I was spending hours every week reading articles on random stuff, and now I have that time back. But, at the same time it was such a great diversion to read and hear what the greater populace of netizens were concerned about. Maybe I’ll come back to it. Maybe I won’t.

This is one of the reasons I support Barack Obama. Network Neutrality and the protection of your privacy.
