Review: Whizcomms Fibre Internet Setup

Whizcomms is the newest Internet Provider in Singapore, with their claims of the cheapest 1 Gbps plan. M1 just came up with a promotion at the same price plan but Whizcomms responded with a counter offer. Good times ahead. I managed to qualify for the Whizcomms free 3 months Fibre Internet trial, and they came over to setup the 1 Gbps promotion. Installation was a breeze.

Quotidian Pen – Fiddle. Spin. Flick.

The pen built for fiddlers. Quotidian is a world’s first magnetic propulsion pen. I think springs or caps work fine, but I do agree, it’s something quite magical to watch the pen nib propel out when you bring the cap to the body. Each Quotidian contains super strong axially magnetised rare-earth magnets, which sound way cooler than Neodymium magnets, which allows it to function. They are indeed very strong and quite fun to mess around with.

That’s until you lose the cap though – good luck with using your pen after that.
