Chinese company OnePlus is planning to launch a pre-paid system in the next few months for those who are still waiting for their invite to buy its flagship smartphone OnePlus One.
My friend pitched me this story back in July since he knew people that worked at OnePlus and also uses this phone himself. I’ve never heard of the Android smartphone before, but after doing much research, I realized it’s quite an amazing feat to be able to use ‘indie’ marketing schemes to maintain a group of loyal fans. The phone was definitely better than the S5, and being an Apple girl - I have thoughts of switching over myself because I was so impressed with the software.
Anyway, it took me a total of three days to work on it: one day to write the script, one day in Shenzhen to film and another day and a half to edit this together.
From now on, all our Digits videos are accompanied by some sort of blog post, so I took the unused portion from my interview with the CEO for the story.
There’s been a lot of buzz around Thalmic Labs’ Myo, a motion controlled arm band that can replace your computer mouse. The WSJ’s Eva Tam tells us how it works and whether it’s worth $200.
First out of the three stories I filmed during my time back to Toronto! I reviewed the highly-anticipated Myo and learned how it works. If they develop more software and programs, I’ll definitely buy it in the future.
In the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, John Oliver explores the racial inequality in treatment by police as well as the increasing mil…
This whole segment on Fergurson is hilariously brilliant.
Pope Francis held Mass at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the second day of his trip to South Korea. The WSJ’s Deborah Kan speaks to Lionel Jensen, associate professor at the University of Notre Dame, about Asia’s importance to the Vatican.
This week was all about covering the Pope’s trip to South Korea. Here’s one of the videos I produced on this story.
The 2014 World Cup is now in full swing in Brazil. If the time difference or your work schedule is keeping you from watching the games live, three apps can keep you on top of the scores and highlights. The WSJ’s Eva Tam reports.
I’ve been working on a lot more Digits than the last few months and this one was a really quick turnaround to correlate with World Cup right now. I wrote the script on Monday night, filmed and edited it all in one day on Tuesday and put the finishing touches this morning.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed kicking around with a soccer ball that I bought just to film this!
Hong Kong’s Ming General Sushi is all you can eat for less than $10 – and a hit on social media. Fans say it’s so bad, it’s good.
My last collaboration with my colleague Te-Ping before she moved to Beijing! I miss her - and this video is finally out :)
Contrary to the advice of “Lean In,” for women, asserting a strong position in negotiations can backfire.
A good read on how women can be assertive about negotiating without being considered too “bossy” and “demanding.”
From jobs to love and money, we all experience stress every day but Toronto-based company InteraXon has created a brainwave headband that could help calm your nerves. The WSJ’s Eva Tam tries out Muse.
This is the second out of the third segment I recorded out of Toronto. They initially had an option where you can use the Muse headband to control pouring a beer tap but apparently it wasn’t working when I got there.
Anyway it was pretty cool to see my brainwaves move!
Nearly 100,000 people in Hong Kong attended the world’s largest annual Tiananmen Square anniversary vigil, police say. The WSJ’s Ramy Inocencio reports from the event, held in the city’s Victoria Park.
Pulled an all-nighter to get this story out. I shot and edited this piece. Learned a lot from covering the Tiananmen vigil for the first time as a journalist, but all in all, it was definitely an experience I’ll remember for the rest of my life.
Toronto has a tech-startup scene? Who knew? The WSJ’s Eva Tam traveled from Hong Kong to see how her hometown is trying to make its mark—with a stringless violin, gamer gloves and smart shirts.
Time to give my hometown a global shoutout (without Rob Ford) as I talked to HackerNest’s Shaharris Beh on what we should look out for in the Toronto tech scene.
This is the first time I decided to shoot while visiting home, rented equipment and shot myself with my personal DSLR. I was freezing cold doing my standup - but I think it turned out alright :)
