Vulcan Digest: iBeacon Tech, Whatsapp Blue Ticks, Sim Lim Square Scam, And More

Editor’s Note:

Hello, readers! We had so much mind-blowing news and articles last week! Are you ready?

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple came ‘out of the closet’ recently and here is one of our writer’s take on it. A free ticket to travel all around the world is available, BUT unfortunately your name has got to be Elizabeth Gallagher (and disappointing groans ensue). The last of the Pirate Bay founders have been arrested at the Thai border, and everyone wonders what is next for them -while watching our downloaded movies from Pirate Bay, and complain about the new blue ticks that Whatsapp has.

Singapore isn’t spared from mind-blowing drama. Sim Lim Square was under fire for a scam involving a Vietnamese tourist. And Singaporean heroes rise to the challenge to get justice for the victim. However, things took a surprising turn when the Vietnamese victim very kindly refused the additional help from Singaporeans.

Last week, Vulcan Post has the opportunity to visit the office of Spotify Singapore, you should really go watch our wonderful Vulcan TV host, Edward Russell bring you around. iBeacon tech seems to be the current ‘in’ thing, and we caught up with founders of Frunk, who is using this technology to get rid of annoying long restaurant queues. Another restaurant game changer which uses iBeacon tech would be the app Asteroid, which is now in Singapore too.

That’s not all, we also have some really good listicles for you to check out. We compiled a list of 10 awesome tools for every job seeker out there, good luck in getting your dream job! Going travelling soon? Then you definitely need to read up on these 11 food facts you should know before going to Italy and know the 5 must-have photography tools that you should prepare in advance before your vacation.

Well it’s going to be a busy week ahead, but it’s definitely time to get updated!
