Chain emails: Web of deception

I received an email two days ago that, to be honest, pissed me off a little. The subject line was: Fwd: This Picture Made It To the Pages of India Times but not in our own papers! Well, first of all, this is not true. Anyone who had read the papers a few weeks ago […]

New layout for YouTube

You guys probably got it by now that this was an April Fools joke. I have captured a shot of the screen in case YouTube reverts the pages back to normal. What YouTube thought would be funny was to turn all the pages upside down (text, videos et al) short for one line that reads, […]

I do not use a Twitter ghostwriter

Those of you who have been keeping tabs with social media would be really familiar with Twitter. I am totally hooked on it now, although I have been Tweeting since mid-last year. Today, the Internet and Twitterverse have been buzzing about some personalities using ghostwriters to maintain their Twitter accounts. Posts that I have read […]

Cisco Fatty: Watch what you Tweet

Okay, I don’t know how true this story is (you know the kinds of hoaxes you find on the Internet) but there’s a good lesson to take from it. You know how they say that the Internet has widened the public sphere like never before? And how one of the most common disccusions re: Facebook […]

iPhone 3G in Malaysia!

Yup, the local Twitterverse is abuzz about the launch of the iPhone 3G with Maxis. To steal from ombudsman turned MP Jeff Ooi, I heard from a little bird just a few days ago that it was due to be launched this week and have been on the look out. @hillarychan‘s Twitters about the iPhone […]

Slow Internet connection: buffer overflow?

Over the past few days, we’ve been complaining at home a little about the Internet connection. It’s come to the point where we’re not sure if it’s Streamyx, some global cable getting cut or our hub that’s messing around with us. Comes to show how fragile the Internet really is, for all its infinite possibilities. I […]

Commercialising social media

I am not an expert, but social media is something I am very excited about (and constantly use in my daily life). I think there is great potential for it, and that we are only slowly discovering its wonders. Still, I’m not quite sure of what to make of a Facebook message I received yesterday. […]

Whee! Internet Explorer has a bug

Well, it’s no big surprise but when I received this from The Star’s SMS News Alert at 5.12pm today: Serious flaw in Internet Explorer browser leaves users completely open to hackers, experts say; Microsoft says will have patch out soon. I went online and found this article which talks about how Microsoft will be issuing […]

Hello? Airplane calling!

Just received this via The Star’s SMS News Alert. It reads: Passengers of selected MAS flights can safely use their mobile phones and BlackBerrys for e-mail, SMS and voice calls effective immediately. Of course, this caused a buzz earlier this year when the European Commission approved used of cellphones during flights. The BBC has a […]

Bernice gives the Low-down on DPM Najib's site

Well, his web site at least. A while ago (actually, as Bernice puts it, 10 years after the MSC was established), our Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak joined us all in the blogosphere and started his own blog called – 1 Malaysia at (not to be confused with TM’s Gold Partner, […]
