It’s the most wonderful time of the year: not Christmas, not your birthday, but better than those two rolled into one. That’s right: COMEX 2016 is just around the corner.

The debate rages on, as it has done for years now. It’s a debate even more intense than those of the days of PC versus Mac, or Nintendo versus Sega. And it’s no wonder why: it’s not just a simple question of brand loyalty. Your smartphone is as much a part of your everyday carry ensemble as your wallet and bag, so whatever you decide to drop a few hundred dollars on (or in the case of flagship phones, a thousand), you’d better like it. Your choice of smartphone can say an awful lot about you; typically Apple users prefer to sacrifice customisability for a rock-solid platform and flawlessly integrated ecosystem, while Android users have the luxury of choice, but face the threat of poor legacy support and compatibility issues.
Try as we might, we still haven’t quite gotten to a truly paperless workplace. Paper is just too handy to give up -- whether it’s passing out handouts at a meeting, or leafing through the latest quarterly finance report. Also, in spite of the rise of tablets and e-readers, there’s nothing quite like the feel of crisp paper underneath your hands.

Getting to COMEX at the Suntec City Convention Centre is easy and convenient, regardless of whether you are driving in or taking public transport.

2016 has been a good year for laptops. With the recent announcement that Nvidia’s latest desktop graphics cards would be placed in their laptops as well, laptops will now see unprecedented levels of graphical performance. Combine that with the low power consumption of Intel’s latest 6th generation Skylake processors, and the surge in popularity of fast and durable solid-state drives (SSDs), and we're suddenly in a new renaissance of the laptop computer. There’s no better time to upgrade.
It’s no secret that there are gamer girls among us. These are the girls who instantly know the difference between a Razer Deathadder Chroma and the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, and which suits their playstyle more. And what about the DSLR dames, who flock to IT fairs and PC shows and use terms like ISO and bokeh and aperture that would have the average guy on the street scratching his head?
