    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 07/08/2015

    » As an avid and passionate follower of geek culture, I generally give superhero movies a chance. Despite all their numerous faults, I have always been able to enjoy a superhero flick based on the flair and larger-than-life action sequences that one has come to expect from films of the genre.

    » 1 The concept of bicycle co-ops aren’t exactly a thing here in Thailand, but those interested in finding out more about them can do so at the Will Work For Bikes event, taking place on March 19. Commonly found overseas, bicycle co-ops are essentially non-profit bicycle stores designed to help promote the benefits of bicycle riding. This event is designed to be a crowdfunding event for this store, and will feature live music from various artists like Beer Soranut, DJ Lows, Galaga and John Will Sail. You can start showing your support for this cause at 7pm, at the Whiteline bar near Silom 8.

    Communication breakdown

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 20/06/2016

    » It has been an uncomfortable several months for internet users the Kingdom over, as the government released the drafts of its eight new digital-related bills. The bills immediately became the source of much controversy, as many critics and pundits criticised the new regulations and laws included in the drafts to be a step back into the days before the 1997 media reforms, giving government agencies absolute control over the surveillance, management and oversight of digital data.

Horizon Zero Dawn, the latest Action-RPG from PlayStation-exclusive developer Guerrilla Games, is one such rarity, a wholly original game that deserves the highest praise for its gorgeous, meticulously-realised world and ambitious story, dealing with such themes as creation and artificial intelligence, even if much of its gameplay is admittedly derivative of many open-world games before it.

    » Google Chromecast -- the tech-titan's digital streaming box -- has been around since 2015. But while the device has existed in the wild for quite some time, it has never supported any of the apps available in Thailand, making it largely useless for Thai consumers.
