Hi I’m Ivan, and I work in the education sector. I previously worked in the government. My interests include travelling and all things technology related. The first thing I do every morning isn’t to read the Straits Times, but to turn my iPad to various tech blogs to catch up on what I might have missed in the previous day.  While I am a believer in Google, I’m not a Google fanboy and am quite open to using other services which would serve my needs. I switched out of the Apple ecosystem two years ago and never looked back, keeping only my iPad in use (which is gradually being replaced by my Nexus 7!). In terms of hardware, I swear by the Thinkpad line of laptops, but am also starting to be a VAIO convert.

I am quite the gadget boy, currently using:

  • iPad 3
  • Nexus 7 (2013 version)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus
  • HTC One
  • Kindle Paperwhite
  • Pentax WG3
  • Nikon D90
  • 13″ Macbook from 2009
  • Self assembled computer
  • Playstation 3
  • Nintendo Wii
  • Jawbone ICON HD
  • Pebble Watch
  • Wacom Intuos Pro

I was fortunate enough to have studied overseas in London and the opportunity to travel all over Europe, and hence the travel bug. I love taking photos of the places  I visit and have been wielding a DSLR since my university days.  I also use my WG3 for more rugged underwater photography and during ski trips. I am quite a photography buff and do significant number of shoots.

Some of the gadgets which I might get in the future:

  • Thinkpad X240T laptop
  • VAIO Duo 13 laptop
  • Macbook Air
  • Playstation 4
  • Google Pixel Chromebook
  • Google Glasses
  • Whatever Nexus phone is coming…
