The fascination for electronic gadgets is very pervasive in Singapore.

When you get into a taxi for instance you are confronted with so many readouts, buttons and lights - you would swear it was more than just a humble taxi. There will be a meter buried in there somewhere.

What amazed me was that even the stereo in a taxi was controlled with - wait for it - a remote control.

At least you are never short of advice when shopping for the latest electronic gizmo.
