Am starting a new blog project for the local Malaysian market based on the current training am attending from FatStacks. I have always been interested in blogging and well, with 2022 coming up, might as well go ahead and do this, as an experiment as well. Starting it up is one thing, continuing and maintaining a project is another story.

Wish me luck 🙂

First Post Using Gutenberg Editor

My photo at my old office in INTI KL (January 2019)

This is my first blog post using the Guttenberg editor in WordPress. So far, so good. For a while, if you are familiar with the old editor, it is confusing, but after a while it makes sense, why WordPress is going this way.

The Branding or Product?

Apple Iphone 11 Pro Max

Interesting for me to see how iPhone 11 Pro Max camera becomes a brand identifier. Ask yourself this question .. when you see a phone with that camera design, do you immediately associate it with iPhone? Or Apple? Makes me think whether it is by design, or byproduct of the camera design.
Am not arguing the technical merits of the cameras in the iPhone, but I am pointing out that it solidifies the Apple brand in the mind of the consumers.
