After unleashing the new Transformer Book T100 (in two different wave, nevertheless) and Transformer Book Trio in our market, ASUS Malaysia have now announced that they have released yet another Windows 8-based Transformer Book in our market. This particular model is called the Transformer Book T300 and just like the T100, it is also a 2-in-1 device as the top part of T300 can be detached to be used as a tablet.
However, almost everything about the Transformer T300 is much more powerful or larger than the T100. For example, the T300 is powered by the 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor and is equipped with a 13.3-inch 1920×1080 IPS touch display. It is also comes with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 128GB SSD. In terms of battery life, ASUS claimed that the T300’s is able to last up to 8 hours via it’s 6710mAh battery.
The new ASUS Transformer Book T300 will be made available in Malaysia starting from this week onwards with a price tag of RM 3399. The full specifications sheet is available after the jump but in case you need to know more, head on to the nearest ASUS Malaysia’s dealer or visit my.asus.com.
While their catalogue have been available in the digital realms for quite some time via iTunes, Led Zeppelin have never embraced streaming music services. That is until now, as Spotify have announced that songs by the legendary rock gods are now available through the world famous music streaming service.
Apparently, the deal is exclusive to Spotify which is definitely a significant achievement for the company and should strengthen Spotify’s foothold in the market even further. Starting from this week onwards, the company will be releasing two album per day on their platform starting with the band’s self-titled debut album and its follow-up, the Led Zeppelin II.
Now that we already able to stream Led Zeppelin music, I hope The Beatles and AC/DC would consider doing the same too. It will be a glorious day when that happens.
Gaming is a great way to spend the holiday season. It might even be one of the few times a year anyone has to finish playing all those games that were bought on impulse during the Steam Sale. Whether you are shopping for yourself or buying a present for someone this very short list should give you some ideas about where to start.

First thing I thought of when I read this letter incidentally
Today for our Wednesday photography features, we’ll go into one of the questions I got in my inbox from one of our readers Aaron/animefreak2k4. He writes:
“I’m Aaron and I enjoyed reading your ‘back to basics’ articles on LYN. I’m quite a beginner in digital photography but i’ve just invested in a new DSLR. I got a Canon EOS 600D with Kit lens 18-55mm.
But the one thing that i really would like to know at this moment is that, is it enough for me to just stick to my Kit lens, or must i get more lens to suit different types of photo shooting? Will the kit lens be sufficient for most types of shooting? (eg. landscape, portrait, micro etc).
Also would be very happy if you can introduce some great websites that teaches digital photography for beginners.
Thanks a lot!
Thanks for your email Aaron and hit the jump for our reply!
Late last month, Razer have announced yet another addition to their family of music/gaming headphones under the Kraken series called Kraken Forged Edition. It is the fourth model in the series and recently made an unannounced appearance at Razer’s booth during the PIKOM PC Fair in KL Convention Centre last weekend.
As you can see above and also from its name, the Razer Kraken Forged Edition is made of metal (aircraft-grade aluminium, to be specific) and finished with matte texture. The closed cup headphones is said to be hand-assembled to ensure its premium quality and comes with a pair of 40mm audio drivers that are made from neodymium magnets just like other versions of Kraken headphones before it.
Additionally, Razer stated (in their own words) that the Kraken Forged Edition is tuned to deliver “booming bass, clear mids and crisp highs” which again sounds exactly like the original Kraken headphones that was released in 2012. To ensure comfort during long use, the company fitted the headphones with thick leatherette ear cushions.

It’s time once again for the festive season; A time where we scratch our heads constantly, making sure we don’t leave gift buying to the last minute and end up getting Kinokuniya vouchers for everyone we know. Over the next 2 weeks or so, the Lowyat.NET editorial team will be sharing 5 different gift guides for 5 different types of people. Hopefully by the holidays, we’ll have all the bases covered for you!
So in our first week, we tell you what are the ultimate gifts to buy for that photographer in your life. Now, all photographers would love to have more lenses but we all know that unless you’re swimming in money, that’s not a very practical thing to get for Xmas.

Here’s a bunch of things that all photographers could use, for any budget!

First revealed to the world back in October, the new Acer Iconia W4 which made its debut in Malaysia at PIKOM PC Fair in KLCC today is pretty much the Taiwanese company’s second attempt to deliver full Windows 8.1 experience in a small 8-inch form factor. Joining the ASUS Transformer T100 which was released in October, the Iconia W4 is also the second Windows 8.1 tablet to be powered by the Bay Trail-based 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3740 processor in our market.
When the Iconia W3 was released into the market earlier this year, the device’s TN display was criticized for its low brightness and bad viewing angles. Acer promised to fix that problem and true enough, the Iconia W4 is equipped with an 8-inch 1280×800 IPS display instead that is way brighter and also has a better viewing angle than Iconia W3’s display.
The new tablet also features 2GB LPDDR3 memory and a built-in 64GB eMMC as its internal storage. As per most tablets out there, there are not much I/O ports on Iconia W4 as we are looking at micro USB, micro HDMI, 3.5mm combo audio jack and a microSD card slot. There is also a pair of stereo speakers located at the bottom area of the tablet.
There are still more to see of the new Acer Iconia W4 Windows 8.1 tablet. Click on the Read More link below (if available) to see further.
Amazon revealed that it is planning to use unmanned drones to deliver packages. Not long after that, Google also announced that it too has a top secret project to build autonomous robots. As far as we are concerned, the future is very much upon us. Not least from the highly controversial deployment of military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in combat zones.
But what is a Drone? And why is the tech community so excited about it?
