Most of you have been tuning in for this epic episode when we released it on Tuesday night, but we thought we’d spice up your commute home with the third episode of The Tech Tarik Show!
This week’s episode is filled with all things mobile. It’s one of the longest we’ve recorded, as it’s also the episode with the most number of topics crammed into the 90-odd minutes.
For starters, we clear the air about Maxis “terminating” Spotify Premium subscriptions for its postpaid customers, before discussing what wen’t wrong at BlackBerry, who have now confirmed that it will not be developing its own hardware.
Next, we talk about the new Sony Xperia smarthones just recently launched in Malaysia, before going deep with Xiaomi’s new Mi 5s and 5s Plus – and whether the once-strong momentum it had is slowly dying…and why.
Finally, there’s a new startup in town that wants to change the way we find parking. ParkEasy is an interesting new service that can be described as “the Uber for parking”. Can this system work in Malaysia? We go through the pros and cons, before ending the episode with the pricing and availability details of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in Malaysia.
