There are many things to do when in Singapore such as utilising its location to take short vacations to neighbouring countries in South East Asia, a feat made easier with budget airlines.

I find it really funny but some of the best tech reads on the internet come from email subscriptions. It’s either Benedict Evan’s excellent weekly newsletter on how “mobile is eating the world” or Ben Thompson’s newsletter that manages to convey the business side of technology without confusing normal people.

If you want to get all productive, you can literally use apps like Dropbox right from the keyboard. We’ve talked about crazy productive keyboard apps in a previous article.
