[Singapore] SMB Tech This Week
Nexus 10 (S$668 for 32GB Wifi version, in charcoal gray)
The Nexus 10 is the latest of the Nexus series, designed with the joint efforts of technology giants Google and Samsung. The powerful tablet device carries the best-of-class hardware married with the latest version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and the all of Google’s app goodness, and includes the world’s highest resolution tablet display (so far), as well as multi-user support.

Samsung HomeSync (S$498)
Samsung’s new 1-terabyte HomeSync media server and Android-based set-top box is really targeted for home use as a way to synchronize content across multiple devices, but it’s also perfect for small business use. Forget about using it to stream entertainment content to big screen TVs, small business owners can act use it to easily store, sync, and share content between members of a team, making collaboration so much easier than emailing documents to one another. File encryption and user-specific ID and password ensure content in a user’s private area remains separate from the shared area in HomeSync, in case you want to keep confidential information away from others.
Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear ($299)
Most entrepreneurs I know could care less how they look – as opposed to how well they do – but these pretty Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones not only look good but sound excellent as well. The build quality is fabulous, finished off as it is with a high-tech material made in Italy called Alcantara. The series comes in four colours that’s been selected by a team of designers and trendsetters, so you’re sure to exude some street cred as you sip your artisanal coffee at some trendy coffee joint as you work to pick your own code apart. You hipster programmer, you.
