A Question That Got Me Thinking A Bit ....

one of my friend asked this question 'what do you think the year 2008 , which obviously just started , would bring us?'

I didn't really answered on the spot.. just as i ponder upon that question.. this is what i think... 2008 will be full of more shit to deal with.. apparently to make us learn from our mistakes/experiences.. so that we grow up and realize that life is not as sweet as it seems... which obviously we've been told about.. from our parents, uncles/aunties , and friends around us...

The older we get , the shit becomes more real and fucked-up.. things that you can only imagine happening in the movies and fictional books , will happen to us or someone close to us.. that includes the ups and most definitely the downs ...

but so far , 2008 , is still bearable.. not so certain that for the next few months will be as calm... my premonitions is always negative.. well.. i guess that has always got me prepared to face the worst situations that life can and will throw at me..

i'm learning to focus more now.. ahahha.. family , relatinship , job (career) , band , friends ... other than those few ingredients in my life , i guess are the spices that i can add to my life to make it more worth living and memorable...

can't wait till this year is over.. but then again , time is just flying by me nowadays.. too fast at times.. sometimes too fast to make changes in my personal life.. as they say , everyday is a learning experience.. which is quite true..

Weird arty video..

This is a weird video.. but it's very artistic.. very nice.. but weird... it must be damn tedious for the artist to draw and redraw each time... love it.. if I'm not wrong , it's done by these people, BLU ...

Cloverfield - A preview of the 'monster'

After looking around for more clues on what the hell that got people screaming and running away in Cloverfield's trailer.. and which monster has the balls to actually decapitate the statue of liberty... I found this clip...ehehe.. a slow-motion clip of a few frames of the monster... my guess is , a cross-breed between the Godzilla and some ugly ass looking creature.. as though godzilla wasn't bad enough.. ahahha.. anyway , the movie may suck in the end.. but this is definitely one of the most captivating/mysterious trailer since Blair Witch Project a few years back.. A must watch movie in my list... :)

take a guess on how it will look like.. ehehe..

Apple's MacBook Air - It Blows My Mind!!!!!!!! - Thinnest Laptop In The World Baby!!

If you havent been watching Steve Jobs' Keynote presentation at today's Macworld 2008 , you would think that the picture you see above , is just a piece of aluminium sheet with an Apple logo on it ... but what can i say , Apple has done it again!!! it's the new laptop , and it's called MacBook Air.. not because it's floating.. but because of the whole idea of being wireless... shit i dunno where to start..

Imagine the MacBook Pro in the size of the MacBook.. much much more thinner , with the MBP's sleek finishing and MacBook's cool keyboard - in BLACK!! .. ehehe...

MacBook Air is a full-size notebook encased in the 0.16 to 0.76 inch of sleek, sturdy anodized aluminum. It weights 3.0 pounds, the glossy 13.3-inch, widescreen LED backlit MacBook Air display is the same viewable size as the screen on MacBook with 1280-by-800 resolution (huahahhahaha.. crazy stuff man..)

"MacBook Air includes an oversize trackpad with multi-touch technology. You can pinch, swipe, or rotate to zoom in on text, advance through a photo album, or adjust an image. This gesture-based input so successful on iPhone and iPod touch now comes to MacBook." - imagine working on your photos on this MBAir ... make's life easier isn't?? talk about innovation..

"MacBook Air comes with a way-more-than-generous 2GB of RAM built in — ample memory for working with your favorite applications. The 80GB hard drive provides plenty of storage space. And you have the option to upgrade to a 64GB solid-state drive, which has no moving parts for enhanced durability." - SSD drive baby!!... don't have to worry about the harddisk breaking down again...

Some of the setbacks of this machine is that , there's no network (LAN /broadband ) port for it... and there's no optical drive (optional) ... the whole idea of this MBair is to operate everyday's requirements wirelessly and it's able to do just that.. most places are already with wireless network.. and regarding software installations , you can use any Mac/PC as a 'host' for the installers (you'll need a special software to operate it that way)... other than that , there's only 1 USB2.0 and there's no more firewire ports..

Height: 0.16-0.76 inch (0.4-1.94 cm)
Width: 12.8 inches (32.5 cm)
Depth: 8.94 inches (22.7 cm)
Weight: 3.0 pounds (1.36 kg)
More specs details here..

i'll post up an ESTIMATED pricing in RM... the standard configuration ... ehehe..

Standard - USD 1799 - RM 6296.5 (i took 3.5 as the conversion rate)

Well , to know the exact price in RM , it'll take about a week i guess...

Other than that , there's of course the Time Capsule being announced but i won't talk about it.. it's late now.. i need to sleep.. ahaha.. read about it here..

Macworld 2008 - There's Something In The Air

It's here again. Macworld.. the event that everyone is waiting for.. alot of people has been holding off their urge to splurge their money on a new Apple product lately.. that's because they know that Apple will be announcing some new products during Macworld.. 

there's alot of rumours going about lately regarding this.. but the more solid rumors will be the new line of laptop which won't replace the MacBook or MacBook Pro but a totally new line-up... rumors includes features like a much bigger trackpad compared to the current one... a flash-based harddisk (how cool is that - but capacity will definitely be compromised) .... no optical drive (external options).. the lightest laptop..  of late , there's also some hu-ha about a tablet.. so imagine a laptop with ipod touch/iPhone's touch screen capabilities (super cool!!) 

but since Apple indicates that there'll be something in the air , i personally think that it could be a new upgrade for wireless products... maybe a new AppleTV , or a new iPod classic/nano with built-in Wi-Fi which enables you to share music wirelessly or stream music from any iTunes connected to the network (that should be quite cool).. i think Microsoft's Zune has got that feature.. but the difference is , Zune is a TOTAL FAILURE..  ahahha

anyway , alot of us are equally excited about Macworld 2008.. only days away from THE event... 14-18th Jan...

A Dedication : Julian - the dawg , the bitch , the friend..

Julian has just elevated himself to the highest level of dawgness... It's a small small world afterall... i met Julian Dawg at Poppy yesterday night.. it was at a birthday party of my gf's friend , prahba ... Julian came with Dyanna who is the best friend of my gf's best friend's sister.. ahaha.. see how things get related??.. interesting isn't?? anyway , we were all there for the party..

the thing is , i had to send my gf back around 1.. and Julian being a dawg as he is.. he didn't want me to leave.. but i had to.. so he took my phone and ask me to be back for it.. hmm.. he traded his phone with mine for that moment..

and of course i didn't want to go back to Poppy .. lazy.. so i went back home thinking that Julian will go back to TTDI ... and he can then pass me my phone... but NOOOOooo.. he went to dyan's place instead.. with my phone.. hmmm.... and i had to leave my place this morning around 7-ish.. and he's got a dentist appointment at 10.. so i can't get back my phone..

and now.. people who wants to contact julian , i'll answer the call and ask them to call my phone instead.. and he's doing the same.. imagine the confusion and MaFan-ness... ahaha.. when jul's mum called , i got confused.. i thought it was my mum because Jul's phone flashes 'MUM'.. i answered in Chinese.. and she on the other hand thought her son's phone got stolen.. ahahha LOL.. crap!!!!!!!!

and now , both our phones are low on battery.. and i'm in a cyber cafe.. fuck.... even the handphone shops here don't have a charger for Jul's Nokia N95.. and talking about the phone , there's a mini USB port.. but it can't be used to charge the phone.. WTF!!!.. ahaha..

Anyway , i'm posting this because I'm bored.. waiting for my gf to finish class.. that's why i'm in a cyber cafe... killing time..

- life is full of interesting moments -
