    The waiting game

    Database, Published on 29/12/2010

    » The big news in Thailand in 2010 was 3G phone service, or rather the lack of it; but everyone knows that; first, though, the really big news in Thailand that almost no one noticed was that one Thai in 10 is now on Facebook, the social network announcing at year's end that it has 6.5 million registrations from the kingdom; in fact, Thailand was one of the world's fastest growing markets for the only network that had a movie made about it in 2010; for several years, Thais up to and including Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva had scorned the US-centric networks to give their loyalty to Hi5, but they threw Hi5 under the bridge in 2010.

    All the new electronics!

    By MTT, Created on: 21/10/2010, Last updated on: 02/11/2010

    » With so many new telephones and computers coming on the market, just wondering if anyone is interested in using this thread as a clearing house for questions/information about all of the stuff available. Talk about things you don't like with a new model you just bought. Tell us the prices so we...

    • wilko commented : Whereas Apple's shenanigans are world wide and are the policies of one brand, the behaviour of "other countries" - however disgraceful can hardly be seen as justification for the behaviour of Thailand;s retailers and the cavalier way they treat their customers. So electronics in Thailand. the Samsung Galaxy or Ipod it really doesn't matter as they are little more than jewelry here - a gaudy trinket, these electronic baubles, when they do find their way onto the Thai market, are of course only partially functional as the good government has seen fit to enmesh the introduction of 3G phone services in a quagmire of litigation and other legal procrastinations. your Mac product - well you may object to having your personal electronics dominated by one man (wasn't Bill Gates bad enough?), but it would be nice to have a choice of retailers and retailers who knew something about the products they are selling. Most of the "Mac" stores are in fact one company - Banana IT - under the guise of "com 7". worse still they don't appear to spend any effort at all training their staff who for the most part re clueless. Any questions about product, whether in English or thai are usually met with a blank stair, an air of total incomprehension followed by some inane suggestion about an unrelated topic. failing that they resort to saying "yes"..........(I think this is what they have been told is some kind of sales pitch) "Is it compatible with my PC?" "Yes" "Can I make toast with it?" "Yes" "Are there little men inside it who operate it?" "Yes" "Are you the Queen of Sheba?" "Yes" - etc etc............ sadly the service they offer is pretty second rate. take a look at the product on display - in one shop I noticed that not one single Mac Notebook was a current model - no indication was given of this and no apparent reduction in price. If you want to my a Mac Book in thailand BEWARE! If you ask for any "extras" = like a high-speed hard rive etc, you may well be told that you will have to wait for weeks before the machine will be delivered. There IS a way round this - if you buy your new Mac from the "Mac Thailand" web site, delivery of a model to your personal spec will be a matter of days. Service is great, you can speak to an operator by phone (usually the same person each time) and the range is the very latest models How can this be when the retail store takes weeks??? simple the site is based in SINGAPORE!
