Piracy Is Killing

, posted: 11-Oct-2006 14:52

As I was doing my blog-surf, I spotted several cool blogs and websites... then I saw this blog post from Henri, of Soo In Love.

He posted 3 images of "what-if" piracy has killed the movie, music and publication industry. It does give a bit of reflect and work your mind a bit, none-the-less the artwork is very well done. So head over to Henri's blog and check out his Piracy Is Killing blog-entry. (read the entire post)...



W00T! Inivitation to MSN Soapbox Beta!

, posted: 10-Oct-2006 23:09

Woohoo, I just got the invite to join MSN Soapbox Beta... Looks pretty good, it is Flash driven. Very cool. (If you haven't heard of MSN Soapbox, it is MSN's take of Google Video/YouTube et all)

However, I have a few comments about their "menu". Took me a while to find out where the "feedback" link is.. then I re-read the "Invitation" email I received, blam! It's there. So if you've forgotten where/what it is, and you search the web and found this blog, the MSN Soapbox beta feedback (read the entire post)...



SD vs miniSD vs microSD

, posted: 10-Oct-2006 17:13

I am slimming down the number of devices that I soon will be getting... maybe in 2-3 weeks time.

I am pretty much "settling" on JasJam for HSDPA PocketPC + mobile modem for laptops/umpc, and looking at getting a cheap SP5 for my daily phone usage. Why do I need two? well because I will be sharing the JasJam with my partner if/when we need to carry it out for our mobile modem/data connection with our laptop.

Now, looking at memory types to get is a headache. all devices (read the entire post)...

FREE 14-days World of Warcraft Trial Edition

, posted: 7-Oct-2006 17:17

Check this out next time you pass by EB Games store, and pick up their September edition, in the centrefold is the World of Warcraft advertisement, and there's a flap (voucher) for redeeming the 14-days trial copy.

I have been waited this long and many people told me it is a great games, but what deterred me is the ongoing subscription to play online. Now I haven't got much time and don't have the same urgency to play online games... so clearly paying for WoW subscription to only pl (read the entire post)...

Now that Vodafone has got Imate JasJam listed for sale, and soon Palm Treo 750v will follow the suit too, seeing that M1 (Vodafone Group's Singapore partner) and Vodafone UK and Vodafone Germany has announced the release too.

Update Needed!

, posted: 6-Oct-2006 12:34

Seeing that Vodafone has got their new WM5 devices out for sale... yet their "Vodafone Handheld business devices, PDAs, and mobile phones" page still stucked in slightly older range of products... I mean, there are new Blackberries out, new HP HW6965 and HW6815, and few new Imate products too... Why aren't they updating this important, appealing "business" page to showcase new business devices?



There are two new Blackberries: 7130v and 8707v to replace the current list (read the entire post)...

Our Sanity Is Back (for now)!

, posted: 6-Oct-2006 10:37

If you were away doing something less-important between the hour of 9am to 1030am on 6th Oct 2006 (Friday), then you probably haven't lose your sanity mind. However, there are good number of Geekzoners that may have sufferred short term insanity due to the reason Geekzone server was getting its upgrade.

Awesome.
