Captures from Genting Highlands

Some ambient shots taken with the HTC Sensation XE.

Just 30 metres down from the dazzle of fast cars and casinos, zinc roofs and broken attennae furnish homes.

[+ve] Wireless@SG does not suck

The trip to Genting was nothing if not a demonstration of how crippled one feels without the internet.

Wireless@SG, the free wi-fi service provided by various telcos, is neither especially quick nor particularly stable (it does disconnect periodically, only to come back after a little tantrum). It is, however, practically everywhere. Also, clocking in at an average of 50kB/s, it really is no slouch.

I used to whine about it a little, saying how slow, or unstable it is. Not any more. The only places that one could get barely useable wi-fi for free was at Starbucks or at MacDonald’s. The speeds are dismal in comparison, and the stability of Wireless@SG would send Genting wi-fi packing.

Being back in Singapore again, I appreciate what used to be a quotidian detail of life.

Thus, while I will not go as far as to bestow the honor of rocking my socks to Wireless@SG, I will say this: Wireless@SG does not suck.
