    Business, Published on 29/09/2014

    » Recap: Wall Street pulled back last week after disappointing US durable goods orders suggested the recovery might be weaker than thought. However, the Thai stock market continued to march up and finally passed 1,600 points — a level not seen since May last year — on Friday on investor hopes that economic stimulus measures will soon take hold. Window-dressing as the quarter-end approaches also lent support.

    » I've been thinking about the new foldable phones. For many years, I have been hoping for a foldable e-book that has, to date, not materialised in a form I'd want to buy. There is something about the traditional book format that is familiar and comfortable.

Reviewers crow about facial recognition for the new iPhone, but the S8 range already has it. They go on about the edge-to-edge screen, but Samsung has had that for a few models now. In fact, almost point by point the Samsung range already has all the features of the iPhone 8 but at a lower price point, and that's before the Note 8 comes out.

    Light, powerful and skinny

    Business, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 17/12/2016

    » With a thickness and weight comparable to that of larger iPad models, the Spectre is without a doubt one of the thinnest and lightest laptops available on the market today. While laptops of this size and weight inevitably end up sacrificing power for portability, the HP Spectre brings us the best of both worlds, packing an Intel-Core i7 (or i5) processor along with up to 8GB of RAM in its slender, solidly built body, making it one of the most balanced laptops in terms of power, portability and design.
