It's easy to fit a 75-inch TV in your HDB flat

Condominium owners can get a tad rowdy these days. If they are not belligerently shouting at security guards who were hired to protect the compound, some can be found tossing out 50-inch TVs out of their 10th floor unit, to the pool below. But the challenge is not in chucking a pristine, full high definition or ultra high definition 4K TV out your apartment, but in getting a large enough display out of the store, into a truck, into your estate, on the lift and into your home. If you live in a house, sliding a TV through the sliding doors is simple, but not so if you live in one of the new ever-shrinking condominiums or HDB flats. But since TV companies are churning out bigger and better TV screens, the question on our minds was, how big is too big? A 65-inch TV will fit for sure, but would a display bigger than a 65-inch actually make sense? What about an 80 or 85-inch? And it's actually harder said than done.

Coronavirus: 5 people arrested for allegedly cheating customers over face masks sold on Carousell

SINGAPORE - The police have arrested four men and one woman, aged 17 to 26, for allegedly cheating customers over face masks sold on online marketplace Carousell amid the coronavirus outbreak here. In a statement on Tuesday (Feb 18), the police said that since late January, they have received several reports from people who said they were cheated by sellers after they paid for face masks on Carousell. The sellers would become evasive and uncontactable after the buyers made payments through bank transfers. The police said they «take a serious view of those who take advantage of the current Covid-19 situation to perpetrate crimes», referring to the disease caused by the coronavirus which originated from China's Wuhan city. «All offenders will be dealt with sternly in accordance with the law,» they added. Working with Carousell, the police identified five suspects:

Facebook blocks access in Singapore to States Times Review page for breaching Pofma

SINGAPORE - Facebook has blocked access to a page on its platform that has been publishing falsehoods on various issues in Singapore, including the coronavirus outbreak, but not without registering its protest. The social media giant on Tuesday (Feb 18) disabled access to the States Times Review (STR) Facebook page, making it unavailable to users in Singapore after it was required to do so under the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (Pofma). Commenting on the move, Minister for Communications and Information S. Iswaran said it was especially important to stop the spread of falsehoods as Singapore battles the coronavirus disease, known as Covid-19. «The reason why we need to act swiftly is because if we don't, then these falsehoods can cause anxiety, fear and even panic,» he told reporters yesterday at an event held by the Hindu Endowments Board to discuss precautionary measures against the coronavirus. The STR Facebook page, owned by Singaporean Alex Tan Zhi Xiang, has received three correction directions under the fake news law since last November. Two had to do with the virus outbreak.

SAF regular jailed after using Dark Web to buy credit card details for Fave vouchers

A Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) captain was sentenced to 20 weeks' jail on Monday after buying credit card details off the Dark Web to purchase vouchers on online application Fave. Yang Jiafeng, 32, pleaded guilty to three charges under the Computer Misuse Act. Another charge was taken into consideration. Yang, a regular in the SAF and a captain in the SAF Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance Training Centre, got to know someone identified as «Mr Tree» through an online forum on the Dark Web. He corresponded with Mr Tree through the e-mail service provider as he wanted to purchase multiple third-party credit card credentials, and he paid with bitcoins, Deputy Public Prosecutor Cheng Yuxi said. He then created three accounts on Fave and linked the credit card details he bought to these accounts. Between February and March 2018, Yang bought more than 80 e-vouchers worth more than $10,600 and spent more than $4,000 worth of credits at merchants such as Tung Lok Seafood and Famous Amos. DPP Cheng said he then refunded these vouchers in order to obtain online credits from Fave so he could buy more items with these credits.
