Vulcan Digest: Robin Williams, Apple iPhone 6, AirAsia In-Flight Wi-Fi, And More

Editor’s Note:

Hi there, readers. We had a very sad start last week with the sudden news of Robin Williams untimely demise. Williams had been suffering from depression for a long time now and his death shows us the dark and scary side of depression. As tribute, we’ve compiled five videos to remind everyone that he was more than just a movie star. Rest in peace, Robin Williams, you will be greatly missed.

For the second article in our series of Apps I Live By, Vulcan Post had the honour of interviewing TripAdvisor’s APAC mobile partnership director, Andreas Behrens! Also, Vulcan TV stepped into the office of online food delivery site foodpanda and filmed the 6th episode of the office tour series. Thank you, TripAdvisor and foodpanda!

Over in Malaysia, we’ve had some exciting news about AirAsia offering in-flight Wi-Fi services. Malaysia Day is coming up and everyone can vote for the best doodle which will be shown on the Google Malaysia homepage on September 16th!
