Navdy, a recent startup in San Francisco, US, has opened pre-orders for its new head-up display (HUD) device, also called Navdy. It can be mounted on the dashboard of your car, and will project imagery for navigation, or feed you alerts and information while driving. Unlike other dashboard mounted head-up displays out in the market, the Navdy unit is designed to project imagery that looks as though it appears out in front of the car, rather than a simple projection on a transparent plate.
Details about the long rumoured Google music streaming service are slowly being revealed as Android Police are reporting that it will be called the Youtube Music Key. It isn’t the most interesting of names, but it will bring some changes to how Google handles music; which includes the Google Play Music service. It will also provide more than just music, as the integration with Youtube will allow for the streaming of concerts and a few other features.
If you are into concerts, then you might have attended or at least were aware of MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 that took place in Sunway Lagoon last weekend. However, if you somehow missed the show or just want to relive the concert once again, here’s a good news for you: you can do so starting from 20 August at 830pm through MTV Asia (Astro channel 713).
That’s not all though. You will also able to enjoy the show with enhanced audio output, provided that you have the right set of equipment.

Razer has announced updated variants of the Black Widow keyboard, DeathAdder mouse, and Kraken 7.1 headset which utilise what they are calling the new Chroma feature.

This year will mark yet another edition of the regional football tournament, AFF Suzuki Cup which will begin in October. The tournament will also signify another important occasion for our national football team: the launch of another brand new jersey (not the one shown above) by the team’s current kit manufacturer, Nike.
For this year’s launch though, the company will be taking a slightly different approach to introduce the new Harimau Malaya’s jersey to fans as compared to the iterations.
UPDATE (14/08, 1230am): We have updated the article with several new information regarding the upcoming AirAsia inflight Wi-Fi service. Read more for details.
Original article (13/08, 614pm):
Even though inflight Internet connectivity is nothing new, local air carriers have yet to offer such services to their customers. That will soon change though as AirAsia has publicly revealed that it is now testing inflight Wi-Fi connectivity in order to allow passengers to connect to Internet during their flight.
Earlier today, AirAsia has publicly revealed that it has successfully completed the first public test of its inflight Wi-Fi service that is scheduled to be available on its aircrafts by the end of this year. Believe it or not, AirAsia is actually not the first Malaysian-based low-cost carrier that is interested in offering such service to travellers.
It was Malindo Air who has actually announced the service last year (twice, in fact) and has even listed it on the airline’s website but somehow, the inflight Wi-Fi service is still not available for Malindo Air’s customers even till today. Well then, good thing that the wait will be over soon.
Bungie Studios has announced that characters from the Destiny Beta will not be carried over to the full release. While the information is currently stored in the Bungie cloud servers, the game will end up changing too much after the beta test to allow these characters to exist. In other Destiny news, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney will be releasing the theme song for the game as a single after its launch.
If you’ve always wanted to try out Uber, a luxury limo service that was launched here in Kuala Lumpur about 7 months ago, but can’t afford to do so, then say hello to uberX, a low-cost product that is similar to the UberBLACK premium service, but comes with a much more affordable price.
Motion seats are usually associated with a theme park’s thrill rides but in some cinemas throughout the world, they are being used to deliver an enhanced cinematic experience for movie lovers. Some of them are located right here in Malaysia including Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) which has just installed D-Box Motion Seats in one of its halls at 1 Utama. In fact, it is the same hall that GSC has equipped with Dolby Atmos sound system last year.
Interestingly, GSC chose to debut these new motion seats right in time for the hotly-anticipated Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy. I AM GROOT!
Bose corp. has filed a law suit against Beats Electronics for infringing on several patents. The legal action appears to stem from the claim that the active noise cancellation found in Beats products is based on Bose’s own technology that has been available for consumers since the year 2000. Why Bose chose to wait so long before moving to protect their intellectual property is in question; although many assume that it has something to do with the impending acquisition of Beats by Apple.
