Got alerted by a friend on a SMS circulating around with a link that installs a ransomware virus on your mobile devices (according to

Not a new thing but seems to resurface again. According to sources (both confirmed by post and the account from my friend's friend), the malware will mass SMS the link to your contacts. So please don’t click if you see such emails.

These are what the SMS seem to look like (excluding for the pun messages written in the meme from SGAG of course) :

An Innovation Changing the Photography Landscape

[Disclaimer: In no way am I affiliated to Sony and I don’t proclaim to be camera expert but I thought this is something interesting to share.]

Sony brought something innovative to the world of photography. It launched attachable camera lenses for mobile phones and now it has upped its game with an “lens-style camera”- mirrorless interchangeable lens1 for mobile phones. This means consumers are no longer confined to the often lacklustre cameras on their phones but has professional lenses and sensors to work with.

The unit has its own battery, could be detached and remotely controlled via the smartphone. So selfies, hard-to-reach places should be a easy with this new product. From the introduction on Adorama’s website, it seems to lack manual controls (I guess most users won’t be bothered if they are used to taking photos with their smartphone anyway).

As with anything that is paired with your smartphone, it might tax your smartphone batteries a bit since you will need to use an app plus turn on the screen.

1.       Interchangeable lens system generally refers to cameras that allows different lens to be swapped and used, much like the dSLR but usually more compact and it does not employ a mirror in its camera body. This is by no means a low end version of dSLR as certain models are actually mid-tier dSLR with the outstanding sensors.

A few hours ago, Microsoft announced the release of the Office Mobile app for iPhone and Android phones.
Did a quick preview/check of the app while on the train this morning:
  • It’s available free for users. However, you would need to register an acct ( If you have an existing Office365 subscription, you can sign in with your Office 365 account.
  • One con/pro (depending on how you view it) is that files would only be saved to OneDrive (Cloud server that is associated with your Microsoft acct)
  • Cons: Limited formatting choices. Only simple choices available.
  • According to websites, app not yet available for Android tablets but it seems that they have plans to do so.
  • Some users have complained about the lack of support to edit password-protected documents.

Note: App is available for iPads already. But need an Office 365 subscription.

You might also wish to try Quickoffice by Google or some office apps in the Play Store or App Store, which are alternatives to Microsoft Office. Quickoffice is available for both iOS and Android.
