Nokia's Symbian Foundation out to kick Google's Android's Ass ?? Apple's Ass is on The Line Too!!

A few days after i posted about my take on Google's Android on my previous post , I read about the recent Nokia's USD 410 Million purchase of the remaining 48% of Symbian's share that's not Nokia's...

Nokia pledges to offer free open source applications in the future... Android is doing the same but up till now , the whole project is still being postponed... Apple is currently finishing up on the opening of their App Store... sadly Apple will be selling some of those applications.. which means once Symbian Foundation and Android starts producing something for the mass market , Apple will be forced to offer free applications eventually .. and that is very very good..

All these open source stuff is really interesting.. it's like a huge canvas for developers to create applications for the end users to benefit from...i'm pretty sure that the future phone softwares won't be as boring as what it is now (iPhone's apps are of a different league for now..)

and the idea of these open source materials being so easily available on mobile phones in the future really will change how people use their mobile devices..With Nokia's Symbian Foundation urge to smack everyone from Google's Android to Apple's App Store to Research in Motion's Blackberry to LiMo... it's gonna be a very very interesting industry in the coming years..

Here's a preview of Android



And here's what Apple has done on their app...

Free Parking in One Utama Every Wednesday!!!

In conjunction with Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival (5th July - 1st September 2008) , 1 Utama Shopping Centre will be providing free parking every Wednesday!!! commencing 9th July 2008 will 27th August 2008. This is very cool of One Utama...

But tenants will still be required to park in the Dataran Parking (open area parking). They will be checking cars going through the entrance from 7am to 10am. ... anyone who refuse to cooperate with them will be forced to park at the Dataran Parking.

hmmm... will try my luck anyway... ehehehe...

This is very good of One Utama to be doing this... 2 thumbs up for One Utama!!!

A Despicable Act by a Malaysian Policeman - Teenager raped while being held in a police station..

I haven't been reading much of newspapers lately.. so i asked my colleague if there's any interesting news for the past few days.. and i was told about the rape of the 17 year old by the 20+ year old policeman.. isn't this underage sex??

This is just disgusting... and this happened in the police station itself.. there's no words to describe such despicable act... and who is he to threaten her to send her boyfriend to jail.. this is just fucked up.. it just reflects how badly disciplined our policemen are.. raped while being in custody.. it's just so wrong... it's so wrong that the word 'wrong' is not enough to describe it..

That policeman should be punished in public.. have his face printed on the front page of every major publication around.. throw him into jail for a long time.. let him being in the position of being raped in captivity (if that happens ar.. i'm influenced by Edward Norton's American History X here... ) ... anyone has got his picture?? a mugshot perhaps?? send it to me k..

Guess what i've got from here....

"It is learnt that the corporal, who is married, is a father of one and has had previous disciplinary offences, but was let off the hook because of his father-in-law's influence."

Ahaaaa.... Another case of Malaysia Boleh...


and here's an old case from 2002 .. reported by BBC...

Android - The Next Generation Phone Platform


I think it's a great great idea that the idea of Android is soon to be available for the mass market. What's great about it is that , mobile phones won't need to be in a 'locked' platform with only limited applications to play around with.

I'm still not entirely sure about what's going on with Android. But from what i know so far , it's definitely an open source project..

"Android was built from the ground-up to enable developers to create compelling mobile applications that take full advantage of all a handset has to offer. It is built to be truly open. For example, an application could call upon any of the phone's core functionality such as making calls, sending text messages, or using the camera, allowing developers to create richer and more cohesive experiences for users. Android is built on the open Linux Kernel. Furthermore, it utilizes a custom virtual machine that has been designed to optimize memory and hardware resources in a mobile environment. Android will be open source; it can be liberally extended to incorporate new cutting edge technologies as they emerge. The platform will continue to evolve as the developer community works together to build innovative mobile applications."

This whole project involves about 300 companies.. namely , Google , Nuance (speech recognition software) , Motorola , HTC , SONiVox , Samsung , just to name a few.. the list is available here..



I think this project will definitely rock. It's like how iPhone came out with their 2.0 SDK , it provides programmers a platform to express their creativity ..it's really a case of technology expression + usability + the uber cool factor ...

I'm not sure if there's other open source platform out there or not.. but this Google's Alliance is definitely taking Apple's iPhone's platform head on... it'll be interesting in the next few months...I'll look around for samples of what it'll look like and post it up later...

Caliban vs Yellowcard ( Wall of Death)



This video clearly states the difference of having a wall of death in a metal gig and a pop-rock gig... Yellowcard.. ahahaha.. yeah...

I helped Mozilla break a world record.. by downloading Firefox 3 of course


And I've got a certificate to proof that.. ahahha.. do your part by downloading Firefox 3 here... This is part of Mozilla's attempt in breaking the world record to have 1 million downloads in 24hours.. When i downloaded it in the morning around 11am , there's already 2 million plus downloads.. and i just saw their number of downloads.. it has reached the 5.1 million mark.. and I'm proud to be one of them who made this happen.. ahaha..


Did you know that someone have a world record for eating 108 Smarties in 3 minutes.. using a chopstick.... yeah.. i didn't know that either.. more weird records here..

Voodoo Envy 133 - thinner than the MacBook Air..


The Sood brother's VoodooPC came out with their latest ultra thin laptop.. it's even thinner than the MacBook Air.. can you believe it?? form factor - it's flawless... the casing is built with carbon fiber with custom micro-weave design - you can actually customize it with any designs or patterns that you want.. also can be coated with automotive paints.. ( you want that Ironman's 'hot-rod red' on it?? ) ... and it seems that you can actually chrome it too.. now that's supercool..

Performance-wise is about the same compared to the MacBook Air... running on 1.6GHz/1.8GHz Core 2 Duo... 2GB ram , either an 80gb hard drive or a 64GB solid drive ... graphics card - intel's x3100 (shared memory) ...Multitouch trackpad (they call it multiple finger tracking -.- )...webcam..

the difference with MacBook Air is , the superdrive (dvd writer) is bundled together.. instead of micro-dvi , they have the HDMI port. oh yeah.. they have the Kensington lock slot.. which is not available on the MacBook Air. Slightly heavier than MBA at 1.53kg ...

It's preloaded with Vista... but they have got Linux running too.. and you can do that instant-on thing with that... you can access your music , internet browsing , Skype and other simple task in a couple of seconds..

Can't wait to see one in action... looks good and sleek ...

More info about VoodooPC here..

WWDC 2008 and 3G iPhones - it's real..

Not sure if you guys are keeping updated... but in less than a few hours , WWDC 2008 will be starting..and it'll mark the year of iPhone... from SDK for developers to 3G for consumers..

I'll update here for more details when everything is official ...

before that , enjoy these pictures.. apparently , Apple Inc actually sent some sealed unidentified boxes over to Apple resellers in Australia (not sure about other part of the world) ... and they're not supposed to open it up till tomorrow i think..

Anyway , there's always some curious people around.. and as the result of their curiosity , here's some 'leaked' pictures of the 3G iPhone.. take notice of the camera positioned in on the front... that confirms the 3G feature (video calls) ...





Pictures taken from here.
From now on , Apple related post will be posted on - The Apple Sales Guy - blog. Also managed by me la...

Major Bonobo's Hump To Music on hold at the moment..



Another great 'music site' ... besides Deathcore is Sexy that i talked about the other time , this is also a damn good site for you music lovers... it's called Bonobos Hump To Music .. the sad thing is that it's put on hold at the moment.. i think the owner is just collecting good materials for future updates...

if you're into indie rock to world music to experimental stuff.. this is a site to check out from time to time.. not limited to those genre , rare and old Eps , Lps can also be found there...The internet is a damn good place to experience good music..

As stated in their latest post , John Lennon quoted "Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it."

MacBook Air - Damaged Hinges - A little too fragile....

I'm not sure if this is the first ever report on the MacBook Air's physical flaw or not.. i read about an isolated case of a design flaw. What i'm gonna post is not really a design flaw... it's cause by stupid customers that have no brain or the intelligence to think and forced the display too far to the back... and also maybe because of Apple's choice of material in making the parts in securing the hinges..

At first when i first noticed the problem , it was just a case of mis-aligned hinge.. by the end of the next day , both end of the hinge broke open.. and right now , the MacBook Air's display can't stay put at any angle.. it'll either drop to the back or front (closed) ...

Here's some pictures to show you what i'm trying to say... if you look closely , it's actually the rubber/plastic part that is being torn... and that displaces the hinge's mechanism...










Don't get me wrong.. Apple is great.. and the MacBook Air is just revolutionary .. but nobody's perfect isn't??

Blonde Redhead - Japanese Fronted Electronica Band..


I just got to know them after watching an episode of Cool Hunting Videos podcast on my iTunes.. very nice music... They are a 3 piece band... vocals , Kazu Makin , Amedeo Pace and Simone Pace ... Music-wise , i would say they are a mix of Trip-Hop , Electronica and Indie Rock.. imagine a softer Garbage plus a mesh of FrouFour / Goldfrapp / Esthero vocal style.. They released their album , 23 , April last year... get it here.. i'm listening to them now.. very nice chillout feel for the whole album.. it's an album to listen to if you want a quiet night at home...

Here's some of their cool videos..

My Impure Hair - just patiently watch it ends.. tell me what you see... :)



The Dress - this is a Beautiful Agony - styled video... instead of watching people getting orgasm , you see people who actually cries in front of the camera.. with their music in the background , it makes you want to cry too...




Silently - This is a video accompanied with just words.. it's like telling a story.. without illustrations or videos of anything.. just words..



Top Ranking - 1 model , hundreds of different pose.. shot in a stop-motion way...



4 really cool videos... no visuals of the band members... created by California based director Mike Mills
