Moving Out
Kenneth Ang
Crazy as that might be, it’s all par for the course in Moving Out. This hilariously lovable physics simulator puts you (and your pals) into the shoes of a Furniture And Relocation Technician, or as you should have realised by now, a F.A.R.T.

After everyone’s done sniggering at their new job designations, here’s what you actually do in Moving Out. Basically, you work for a movers’ company, helping clients pack their stuff and bring it to their new homes. Sounds simple enough, but it’s not really what you do that’s amusing, but how. As the training module will tell you, breaking one or two windows and pieces of furniture is perfectly okay if it means you get the job done faster.

An Ode To LG Mobile

In April 2016, the cover story for the month’s issue of HWM was Samsung vs LG. It was an in-depth look at the two Korean electronics giants. Samsung had just launched the Galaxy S7 and LG, the modular G5. In just a few months after that story was published, Samsung’s follow up Note 7 devices would suffer battery failures and meltdowns. The entire line had to be recalled. It was undoubtedly a PR disaster and Samsung’s reputation took a major hit that many thought would take years to rebuild.
