eBuddy XMS had release a version for Nokia N9, meego harmattan.
XMS is apps that alike whatsapp. Function is almost the same.
But it's totally free and also able to send from computer.
XMS for N9 is QT-based, N900 support QT based too.
Wondering this news is making me happy or disappoint.
Will it release for N900? Nobody know.
But well, it's a good news for N9 users ! :D
almost 3am, I'm having weird feeling, weird mood, don't feel like sleeping, although I'm tired, I don't know whats the reason. I bet it's something undefine. Have to busy with a lot of stuff in these coming weeks. Wanted to continue something that I had mention just now, about two step verification.
My google account is very important to me, my google account has youtube, blogger, gmail, google docs, etc etc.. Nowadays google have more and more online application which bring us a lot of convenience, we can view and edit document files on google document, even prepare presentation slide by using google docs. Google account is getting more and more important. I'm strongly recommended you guys to activate two step verification for your account to avoid any loss.
Time after time, we know that google is getting more and more online application on the internet, long long time ago, google is only a search engine, a huge database, in the old ages, yahoo is much more famous than google, i still can remember that last time i'll go to yahoo.com instead of google.com.
but now google.com is already my home page, how many times i access to google.com per day? It's uncountable. I guess I accesss to google is more than my own blog.
Okay now get to the point.
I saw BLOGGER blog had been hacked by dex-crew. and the victim is HERE.
As the hacker mentioned in the blog, owner use same password for all of the account
If you have 2 step verification , that won't be a problem.
We know that google is getting bigger and bigger, google docs, youtube, blogger, you can access it by using your google account, so you SHOULD set up 2 step verification for your own good.
This is how does it look like when you login your account, even if someone got your password, they still need the code that send to your phone !
Unless they can get your phone? :)
You can just turn on 2 step verification in your google profile.
I involved in business management project, me and my group mates are selling ice creams, we bought 90L of ice cream from nestle and also rent the freezer from nestle company. We will sell business for 3 days. Group project should be something fun and can get friends closer to each other cause we could spent longer time to be together.
But it's really damn tiring, CEO isn't a good planner, raining day still want to waste our time and sell ice creams, who wants to eat ice cream on raining? except me myself. :S
Got headache everyday after business project, bunch of assignment have to pass up, so damn a lot of due date.
The previous time I used ubuntu is damn long ago, I think when I was in primary school or secondary school, at least 4 years ago. Ubuntu had changed a lot time after time, it became much more nicer, with a lot of effects, I can say that it's much prettier and cool than windows 7 if you know how to customize it.
This video show you how to make the cube desktop in ubuntu.
This cube desktop is very very long ago, since the older version of ubuntu.
Ubuntu 11.10 is very very easy to use, good graphic user interface, come with software center, don't have to stress or worried about where to find software for ubuntu, and of course the most important thing to me is xterm, you can do all the things in xterm. copy files, remove files, go to specific directory, install stuff, etc.
I installed my ubuntu by using wubi, which is an exe file, just download and double click in your windows7 ,vista, xp and it will run, and make virtual partition, download and install. It's extremely easy and you can choose between windows or ubuntu everytime you start up your computer.
Other than that, if you wanted to delete ubuntu, you can just boot into your windows platform, go to control panel > add or remove software / uninstall a program > look for wubi and delete it.
Ubuntu is getting more and more popular, 2 years ago, computer in French police station had changed to Ubuntu and said saved millions of euro by adopting ubuntu. here is the LINK .
I'm still a newbie in programming stuff. I'm not an expert of programming, currently I'm doing the physic project, I did mentioned it in previous post with screenshot, I need to meet my lecturer got 3 times before we submit the program, first time done, 2nd time, was few days ago, he cancel our lecture class and said change it to meeting for that assignment, the meeting suppose to be 8-10am, I arrive at 8.30am, he is still not there, my friend called him, he is still sleeping, what a good lecturer I have.
That isn't important, me and my groupmate show the program to count the resistor of the circuit, the question of the assignment stated, the program must be user friendly, nice user interface and working.
Our program isn't 100% working yet, still got some bug, but he said, our program is too many lines, this is an simple application, that's mean our program is not efficient, this is the feedback I got from him. I was thinking, what do he want from me? Less line, sucks UI, or more lines, nicer UI? I understand, a programmer can use less line to create a program is efficient, but what he mentioned to us is both difference thing, totally difference, how to compare? The worst thing is, he got 0 knowledge in programming..
I've joined Churp Churp, you can see the images on the right side of the blog to click,
that is ChurpChurp, I read someone else blog and they did mention that churpchurp brings more rewards compare to nuffnang and it's nuffnang's company.
You can put it at a lot of places , share at facebook, twitter, blog, yahoo messenger, msn, etc etc
It pay with per unique click, I've changed my shoutbox code, that will cause pop out for churpchurp
special thanks to P0L5K4H4CkR3w , he taught me how to do that and his blog has a lot of tutorial about coding, it's suitable for all of the new blogger :D
N9 and Lumia 800 are already in the market, I bet a lot of fans are trying to look for review or comparing both of the phone. Well, I'm not N9 or Lumia 800 owner, I'm N900 owner. I'll just compare it base on my knowledge or whatever I know.
First of all, N9 is running on a all new operating system which is Meego Harmattan, special for N9 and it's difference from the other meego, it work with swipe, buttonless, that's the special point of harmattan.
I tried to play with N9 in Nokia shop, It's pretty smooth.
Lumia 800, using Window mobile 7.5 platform, it's a new OS, but at least, before this there are some older version of windows mobile, their technology and development will be better than meego.
So my conclusion is,
If you're an ordinary handphone user, I suggest you to take Lumia 800,
If you're someone who like to explore, who like to try new things, you can try Nokia N9, it can flash to custom kernel, I not sure is there any custom kernel on the internet now, but phone with custom kernel you can do a lot of things, n900 with custom kernel can overclock, install android, install meego, kubuntu, backtrack5.
Before this I did posted Ubuntu Mobile Concept
This is swipe and buttonless design, but it's still concept, haven't start to develop, If this OS start to develop, I believe the first device they gonna try on is nokia n9.
Choose the right phone for yourself, if you like apps, like whatsapp or some other stuff, Window mobile will be your choice.
Well, it isn't a new technology, I bet most of you have see this kind of thing before, what I would like to share with you all is , it can even install on your netbook, as long as it's under asus, I tried on asus eee pc 1015B, because this software only pre-install in the high end laptop, well, it does work for me, try to get yours!
For those who're not using asus laptop, I saw a related post in a forum, there is a freeware call banana_screen.121.msi. This is the file name, you guys can try to get it for yourself, can login with face recognition, some people might think that face recognition just crap, well, it just cool, not that 100% useful, unless you can set it only for face recog, and no password input. that would be much more better and even more private ! :)
Well, I've set my google account to the highest security setting, I've set up two step verification to login my account, that's mean, even through someone could have my email address and password, he or she still need to have my phone, to get the verification code whenever he/she wants to login my account. Last time I did set push email in my phone, so that I can get notification anytime, but it doesn't work with 2 step verification, so I didn't use it anymore, I choose security instead of convenience, and now I found an add-on for firefox which support 2 step verification, but the version of the notifier must be 2.6 and above, it's really work and pretty awesome, would like to share with you guys !
This is the website.
or you can search for gmail checker in the google!
I bet people who concern about information technology news and open source news know about HP said that they want to stop develop WebOS tablet and clear all the WebOs Tablet with low price. I forgot about the exact value but I remember that it's quite cheap. And now HP announce that they will continue contribute for the WebOS, it's a good news for those who're more into open source operating system, hope to see more and more device will use WebOS and also more software on WebOS platform !
WebOS is lucky, open source, give up by HP and now HP is willing to continue contribute for it.
Maemo5, linux based OS, similar to WebOS, capable to run .ipk extension file, imcomplete OS, work on Nokia N900, given up by Nokia and now only develop by developer.
Live coverage will be provided by Slooh on December 10, 2011 HERE
click the 'here' above u will transfer to slooh spacecamera website and able to see the count down timer and also the live streaming when lunar eclipse appear later !
First of all you need to register an account, after that you need to buy token,
one token cost RM1.50, token is not refundable
after that you can start to bid the things you want, each bid require 1 token and the price of item will increase 5cent-15cent. Once the click bid, the timer will increase 20second, if no one else bid the item in 20s, the item will belong to yours, so you have to pay the price and delivery charge.
I just found out this website yesterday,
not to say easy to bid, but have to depend on your luck and your bidding strategy,
galaxy note sold at RM4x.xx.. Unbelievable but they spent a lot of token to bid that one.
But the money you spend on bidding will be lower than the actual price of th item.
I went to Alamanda Shopping mall with my friend today. We went there to buy some stuff, but before we get into carrefour, we went to have our lunch, which is A&W, I think I didn't eat A&W for damn long already, at least 4 years. I can't even recall how does the meal taste before I eat.
And this is the first time I go to Alamanda shopping mall after I came to cyberjaya for 6month.
Alamanda is the one and only shopping complex in cyberajaya and putrajaya !
After I had my lunch. I went to carrefour, wanted to buy something, before I go in, I took a flyer, and the we saw that there are promotion for HOT WHEELS!
Me and my friend went to check out the hot wheel and each of us bought 3 !
It's a very very nice talk. Worth you to spend 19mins time of your life to watch this video if you're interested in information technology and something that happen around you and you don't know that ! Hacker can be good or bad, like anonymous, they hack to the website just to prove something or want to against certain government's action.
One of the example is :
Malaysia government said that want to block all of the file sharing website like megaupload, rapidshare, and etc etc.
By the time Malaysia government said that wanted to block the website, there are a lot of number of government website had been hacked by the anonymous. They didn't do anything much beside distrub the website for few hours.
Why government wants to block these website? What benefit will they gain?
Ubuntu’s plan for a multi-device presence, to potentially include smartphones, has fired up the imagination of users.
And the community have been quick to stoke their creative talents in mocking up a variety of possible implementations.
Below are three of those community designs that have landed in our inbox over the last week…

I really like the design, it has very nice user interface, other than that, it's ubuntu,I hope that it has x-terminal, if it has, I think my next phone after N900 will be phone with ubuntu mobile OS!
Hello everyone, I just finished my physic exam few hours ago, it's easier than what I expected, but I've no confidence to get very good mark, but it's easier if compare it with previous semester midterm test. I checked my nuffnang visitor right after I got into my room, I'm quite happy, my reader all come from world wide, but most of the reader are Malaysian. For those who wanted to use other language, can translate with the translator I've added on the right side of the blog ! I'm free from TEST !
I'm having a super headache right now, I will have my exam tomorrow, ELECTRICITY AND BASIC LOGIC. I hate this subject a lot. My mind is still empty right now. Seriously don't know how am I gonna squeeze all the knowledge and formula into my mind in few hours time. Life life life, this is life..
I was quite interested in this tablet when I saw the article on the engadget this morning. tried to do some research in the internet, I was thinking that, 99USD convert to MYR, it worth the money, so I searched around the internet, all of the seller are selling at at least 470MYR, or 500MYR. so I emailed to ainol company, their reply is quite dissappointing.. One buyer can only order one unit, which cost you 99USD and another fee which is shipping fee, that would cost you 60USD, the shipping fee spoilt my mood, damn it, why the hell the shipping fee is that expensive..
Just as we were geeking out to the Jaguar 7's Ice Cream Sandwich demo and anxiously awaiting the Transformer Prime, Ingenic and MIPS completely took us by surprise by announcing the Ainol-branded NOVO7, the very first commercially available tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich officially loaded. To be specific, the device isn't brand new -- it's been previously available as a Honeycomb tablet and is now shipping with ICS pre-loaded. It's packing an Ingenic JZ4770 mobile applications processor and 1GHz MIPS-based XBurst CPU, which means this Android 4.0 slab isn't going to be the toughest workhorse in the market. What more would you expect from a $99 tablet?
The Novo7 also comes with a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen, a Vivante GC860 GPU clocked at 444MHz, 1080p video decoding, rear 2MP camera with VGA front-facing cam, USB 2.0, HDMI 1.3, microSD slot and an endorsement from Andy Rubin himself. If temptation is just too much to overcome, you can head over to the More Coverage link to order one. However, if you'd rather wait a while to save a few bucks in shipping -- it's over half the cost of the tablet itself -- MIPS informed us that it'll be coming to the States and other parts of the world over "the next several months," and 8- and 9-inch versions of the NOVO are in the works as well. Head below for a video and press release. Oh, and existing NOVO7 customers may be wondering why their tablet hasn't received ICS yet; MIPS assured us that there's an upgrade path for those customers as well, though no announcements have been made.
This is the article I copied from engadget, seems like very very cheap with capacitive touchsscreen, 1Ghz single core with 444mhz GPU. Wonder is that available in Malaysia !
There are so many android tablet out there, from RM 300 - RM 1500 and above, and the upcoming Asus EEE transformer prime, no idea what's the price, using Nvidia Tegra 3, Quad core processor, that's mean QUAD Arm cortex A9. Hardware is extremely strong, same for Acer, they're planning to use Tegra 3 on their new tablet too. Why do you buy tablet? Is that a trend? or you really really need it? do you fully utilize your own tablet? phone? computer? I'll always ask myself a question before I want something, Do I really need it? Why I need it?
OWN OPINION :
If you tell me that, you need tegra3, nice graphic, can play game. I would answer, play game? You can get PSP Vita, Quad core processor, much more better than current version of PSP, no longer play grandpa's generation game. That would be much more better for gaming :D
If you say that, you need it, for web browsing, document.
Why do you need a RM1500 device to surf net and view / edit document? These job doesn't require a super duper fast processor, I bet most of you own a phone, that is able to surf net, view document, android user, you can install document to go or some open office which is free, same for other platform, and also able to view PDF file, what's the reason you want an expensive tablet to view document. You also can use a cheap tablet to do presentation, platform is the same, just that hardware slightly difference.
Expensive tablet come with good camera, if you want to compare about megapixel of the tablet, I can get another 16mp digital camera that 100% beat the tablet camera, more function, better lens and sensor.
The expensive tablet will process files faster, do task faster. But 300 and 1500, 5:1 . Is it really worth the money? I saw one of the android tablet on the internet, it cost rm299, Ram only 512, 4GB storage, capable extend to 32GB. 800mhz processor, 2 x USB 2.0. support USB OTG. You can't insert sim card to the tablet, but you can connect USB Boardband to the USB port, WIFI, OR USB Convert to RJ45, connect to the internet via RJ45 cable.
I'm not the seller of the tablet, I'm just saying my own opinion, things appear in my mind when I saw that tablet.
We're human, we live for ourself, living is not hold a branded tablet and impress the other, we live for ourself, get what you need with a reasonable price :)
2011 Pikon PC Fair is Over! Too bad I missed it, didn't attend the PC fair. Another new challenge is coming soon ! 7th of december, electricity and basic logic mid-term test. Went to library early in the morning and study until 4pm just now. I don't think I've learnt anything just now, I don't know what's the reason, not interested in physic? too hard? not motivated? My physic lecturer is a new lecturer, early of the trimester, I feel that he is quite okay, not to say great, but now I feel that he is really really sucks ! He cancel a lot of classes even through mid-term test is coming, most of the lecturer started to revise with their student. and my lecturer did nothing. Maybe some of the people will say that, we should not rely on the lecturer when we're in the university, this is not high school anymore, but I really feel that he is not responsibility. We have assignment, assignment have due date, whenever I email, ask him something that is related to assignment, he will only reply one time, I instantly reply him to ask him another question, then he is gone :S
oh my god I hate it !
well yeah, sorry for posting this kind of stuff!
People around me said that this movie is very very nice and meaningful. Well, I downloaded it and I'm watching it right now, to me, I don't feel that it's very nice but some of the part is quite funny.. I found out my netbook is super duper hot when I'm watching the movie, so I checked the temperature of my processor. Here is the photo, first time reach this kind of temperature WITH cooler.
I like to eat eggs! fried egg, soft boil, hard boil, steam, or whatever, I just like it. Ate 3 soft boil egg in the afternoon for my brunch! This brand is quite cheap, RM5.xx for 10 kampung eggs, kampung means village, kampung eggs is the egg grown at their own house or garden, or wild, not from the chicken in the farm. It taste nicer compare to the eggs from the farm, RM5.xx, size is quite big too ! Worth the money :D, still remember last time I bought 50cent / egg, the size is super tiny.
Game Game of the day
This is diablo 2 ! Just downloaded it today, I was too bored, It's a super old game, but nevermind ! play this while waiting for diablo 3 to release, this game release long time ago, but I don't really know how to play this game.. Tried to figure out how to play this game just now. I bet there are still a lot of people are playing this game, cause the multiplayer mode is awesome. The most attractive thing in games is multiplayer, can play with other player, work together to achieve something. That's is why people like multiplayer game that much.
Another new thing I had installed today!
This is dreamweaver, product of adobe. It's a web design application, the concept of this application is WYSIWYG, it stand for, What You See Is What You Get, had spend couple of mins on trying out this application, it is a licensed product, not freeware, I'm using 30days trial version. I feel this application is pretty user friendly for the newbie like me. At the same time, I remember that microsoft have same type of application, web design application, and also WYSIWYG concept. Recommended for those who wanted to try out web design. :D
Good night everyone, time to sleep. Have to go library tomorrow early in the morning. Sigh, another test on 7th of december, Physic, OMG! I really really hate it.
this is the program after changed the layout, all of the basic function is already working.
this is the progress of editing the layout! spend lot of time to edit all of the layout.
Any vb.net 2010 user here? Maybe we can share our experience :D
Most of the place in Malaysia are having heavy rain, parts of Kajang area had already flooded, went to Kajang to eat Kajang Satay with my friend last night at river side, can see the level of water is very high, if rain continuously for few more hours, I guess that part will flood too, and now I've to bring my clothes to laundry, waste of time, 50mins for washing, 80mins for drying. 130mins. :@
Is there any tablet that's hotter than the Transformer Prime right now? (Please, don't say the Kindle Fire.) For weeks we geeks, early adopters and people who love their tech toys have been awaiting this, and none too patiently. Make no mistake: this will be one of the slickest products we test this year and it isn't just because the original Transformer had such an inventive design. The Prime is the first device packing NVIDIA's hot-off-the-presses Tegra 3 SoC, making it the world's first quad-core tablet. This comes with promises of longer-than-ever runtime and blazing performance (five times faster than Tegra 2, to be exact), all wrapped in a package measuring just 8.3mm (0.33 inches) thick -- even skinnier than the iPad 2 or Galaxy Tab 10.1. Throw in specs like a Super IPS+ Gorilla Glass display, eight megapixel rear camera and a confirmed ICS update in the pipe and even we seen-it-all Engadget editors were drooling.
All of which means we dropped just everything when a 32GB Prime showed up on our doorstep earlier this week, and soon enough, you'll have your chance to nab one too. ASUS announced today that the WiFi-only models will be available through online sellers the week of December 19th, and in retail the week after. (No word yet on 3G versions for the US just yet.) It'll start at $499 for the 32GB model -- not bad considering five hundred bucks is the going rate for a high-end tablet with 16GB of storage. From there you can get a 64GB number for $599, while that signature keyboard dock will set you back a further $149. Worth it?
Science reveals that the carbonated beer freezes at a lower temperature than non-carbonated liquid. When the beer is hit, it releases the carbonation in the beer, allowing the remaining liquid to become frozen.
"ATTENTION:Important Message....For d next few days, do not drink any product from pepsi company like pepsi, tropicana juice, slice, 7up , coca cola, etc,,as a worker from the company has added his blood contaminated with HIV. watch NDtv ...please 4ward this 2 every 1 u care about."
I would like to tell you guys, HIV is impossible to spread through these carbonate drinks, HIV does not live long outside the body. Even if small amounts of HIV-infected blood or semen was consumed, exposure to the air, heat from cooking, and stomach acid would destroy the virus. Therefore, there is no risk of contracting HIV from eating food. How is it spread via pepsi? Hope you guys stop sharing this kind of information and cause the other worried about things they eat and drinks.
This is some of the screenshot of my physic project . There are 2 requirement.
i. The input of the circuit is the color code of a resistor.
ii. The output of the circuit is a total resistance of the circuit. The total resistance value must
be represented in decimal number.
This is the layout I did, still in progress, have to modify a lot of stuff, add some extra buttons to make the program work, and also add some extra function other than the 2 requirement to get full mark, if only fulfill both of the requirement stated in the question, only able to get average mark. LUCKILY, I like programming a lot, it's much more better than doing something practically like previous semester.
By the way, the language I'm using is VB.net
here are some of the picture I snapped on the day I went there with my family members and relatives. There is a real nice place for you guys to visit early in the morning, what can you see there are green and green, it's hard to find such place in kuala lumpur. well, but this is not located in kuala lumpur, it's located in somewhere near kuala lumpur, which is semenyih. Next target is Broga Hill!
The video above is a video I would like to share with you all today.
Calculus midterm test is over, next one will be electricity and logic gate on 7th december, nothing much to share about myself today, just updated myself about some IT stuff, felt that Lenovo is a company that develop very fast, from laptop to tablet, cellphone like dell streak, and now they're heading to the garena of Smart TV. At the same time, Sony is going to release PSP vita in japan on december. An all new device, with capacitive touchscreen, arm cortex A9 quad core, and also quad core GPU, the title on engadget is PSP vita no longer play grandpa's game, I bet those who had just bought their psp will gone mad when they read that news. PSP vita also available on 3g version, will be much more better, don't have to rely on wifi all the time.
midterm exam is around the corner, I've plenty of works have to do ! BUT, i feel happy, at least there is something to do rather than nothing to do
1) 29/11 calculus midterm exam
2) 29/11 calculus online quiz due date ( first attempt 71.9%)
3) 8/12 electricity and basic logic midterm
4) physics project
5) paint.net lab test on tomorrow
6) multimedia advertisement proposal
7) business project ice cream booth
Mood : Happy.
New semester, new target ! Work hard for it.
What past is past :D
I'm no longer happy as I was.. Time after time, things will change, same for human. I smile to you as usual, I act as I'm fine when you talk to me happily, how many wrong thing i've done in 2011, how many wrong choice i've made..
Had attended an interesting speech in this morning, it's compulsory for all of the student in faculty in information technology.
The speech is given by the CEO of netcarbon studio, creator of SUPERTOTS!
Had gain a lot of new knowledge about animation and also some of the knowledge about games design, how does motion capture work ( the way they create avatar)..
Too bad, this studio is located in Malaysia,
Nobody is going to give them $$ to do animation,
They have to go around the world to purpose their idea to the other and get sponsership from other company.
They spent 2.8m MYR on SUPERTOTS, its only 13 episode. and spend 11days on rendering the whole animation with 80 cores computer..
Netcarbon is a very nice company for those who're interested in animation design in malaysia.
It's located in Bangi, a small town in selangor malaysia.
Sleeping with the light on can impair a person's body clock. Research has shown that the body clock is negatively affected even if the person continues to doze off. The research into the effect of light on sleep can help foster new treatments for various sleep disorders.
Being exposed to light at nighttime can trigger a chemical process that can operate as a neural switch that can switch the sleep/wake cycle on and off. By nature, the sleep/wake cycle is run by the pineal gland. The pineal gland, located in the brain, secretes melatonin. The production of melatonin is at its peak when a person sleeps.
An enzyme called AA-NAT or N-acetyltransferase is involved in the production of melatonin. This particular biochemical machine can cause the production of melatonin to turn on and off. High levels of the AA-NAT enzyme can produce high levels of melatonin to induce sleep. In general, the pineal gland shields the AA-NAT enzyme from being destroyed by proteasomes or barrel-shaped cell structures.
Turning on a bedside lamp at nighttime can block the stimulation of the pineal gland causing the AA-NAT protein to be destroyed by the proteasomes. This results in a continuous drop in the level of melatonin secretion. Exposure to light can help control the production of melatonin. At the same time, it also increase the chances to have cancer.
What is melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced every day by the pineal gland, which is located deep in the brain. Healthy young and middle-aged adults generally secrete about 5 to 25 micrograms of melatonin each night. This amount tends to decline with age, and this decline is possibly linked with an age-related rise in sleep difficulties.
Melatonin is sometimes described as the sleep hormone, but this is not correct. It is not geared to the sleep cycle, although it may help you fall and stay asleep. It is produced in the dark, regardless of whether or not the person is sleeping. Hence its name, which was coined in 1958 from the Greek word, 'melas,' meaning 'black.' Theoretically, you could be up and about in the dark (such as listening to the radio) and still produce the normal amount of melatonin.
At dusk, the decrease in sunlight sends a signal that stimulates the pineal gland to produce more melatonin. Hormone levels then continue to rise steadily for hours, peaking at around 2 a.m. (3 a.m. in older people). It then declines sharply as morning approaches. By 8 a.m. or so your melatonin levels are back down to their typical low daytime point, only to start the cycle over again the following evening.
PS : EXPOSED TO LIGHT DURING SLEEP WILL INCREASE THE RISK OF GETTING CANCER!
I can see that most of my friends or people around me start to move to android device, but why? what's the reason? is it really that good? what about the previous champion? nokia? well it's still the champion in Q3 2011, sales 27.11%. still top sales among all the other company.
Most of the people I asked, Why you change android? They will say that, BECAUSE OF IT HAS A LOT OF APPS..
I was wondering.. You able to use all of the apps? Is it necessary to use so many apps? and can you use all of it? how many % of it you installed in your phone?
Me, I'm a student in information technology field, I couldn't say that I'm an expert in such things but according to my knowledge, or my personal opinion, symbian is more practical than android.
Why would I say that? Because symbian really did what end user need. Games, symbian have, angry bird? Dungeon hunter 2? Asphalt 6? Hero of sparta 2? Symbian support all of it.
But there is one different between symbian and android, SYMBIAN phone run these game won't lag, but android will. Android is too general, it's an open source operating system, it need very strong hardware to make it run smoothly. Samsung said that, galaxy s2 is the strongest smartphone in the world. YES I AGREE! In term of hardware. It is. But when it goes to software, asphalt 6, x7 is much more smoother than samsung galaxy s2. Why? because the installer of the game is special design for symbian phone. Android installer is different, it's too general for that much of phones.
Other than that, we can see that, android OS, google didn't mention about hardware requirement, but 600mhz phone able to run android smoothly? No it can't, now mid-range phone is up to 1.4Ghz dual core. Why nokia haven't up to that standard? Nokia is working on 1Ghz single core, but it can run smoothly.
Some people said, they need android phone, cause of apps, widget, but i did tried on nokia e7, it's practical, it has the widget that we need, it have notification too, a widget on homescreen, provide same function as iOS5/android notification center. Some of the popular apps like whatsapp, foursquare, nokia phone also have. even s40 simple phone also have whatsapp.
Whats more? Why people around me all goes to android phone? what's the reason? I really can't understand. I did fall for android OS for a period of time, but I can feel that, it really need very good hardware to work smoothly. I didn't say Android is not a good OS, it's only my own opinion, it's good, just that it can't optimize all of the phone.
I used CSSU on my n900 for very long time, couple days ago, my friend told me that there is an update for n900, so i asked him that whether it's nokia official update or it's CSSU update, he told me that it's nokia update and asked me to delete CSSU cause it has bug, i just ignore about his advice.
And today i try GPS on my n900 again, I unable to lock my position no matter how long I wait, it's not the first time for me to face this problem. So I went to maemo.org to find solution, found a thread, somebody said that his gps is working after he delete CSSU.
Well, so I tried to delete my CSSU by using x-terminal but failed.
So I decided to format my phone and reinstall everything.
After i reformat my phone and I try to test on GPS again.
Location : In the Room
Weather : Cloudy
AGPS : OFF
GPS : N900 internal GPS
GPS lock speed was awesome, I could lock my own position in NO TIME , just within 5second, I'm able to lock my own position without AGPS!
Encourage all of the N900 user to delete the CSSU, although it's good but it really bring troubles to our n900.
God bless victims of thailand.
Lots of people lost their houses because of the flood,
Students can't go to school, worker become jobless, hawker unable to start their business.
and now 400 crocodiles escape from the zoo and 15 deadly green mambas escapes from the Nonthaburi's Pak Kret district on Tuesday night.
Officials say the highly venomous snakes include two adults - 2 metres long - and 13 one-metre-long young ones.
Anyone spotting the snakes must alert the Zoo and Wildlife Veterinary Society of Thailand via hotline 1362 or the Jor Sor 100 radio station at (02) 711 9160.
Chisanu Tiyacharoensri, vice president of the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand, said green mambas were yellowish-green and larger than green snakes. He urged people to stay away from the snakes and be careful not to be bitten because there was no serum available in Thailand at present to counteract their venom.
Chisanu said the victim of a mamba bite would feel drowsy and could die in 20 minutes. If he or she survived, the victim would be on respiratory aid while waiting for antivenin to come from South America in two or three days.
For first aid in case of snakebite to a limb, Chisanu said the wound should be cleaned gently with soap and water, and a piece of cloth should be wrapped tightly at least 7 centimetres above the bite. A second piece should be wrapped 7cm above the first. The victim should lie down before being quickly transported to hospital.
had been lot of days I didn't update my blog already.
3rd of Nov, is a night, I don't know what to do,
wonder the decision I made is correct or not, feel empty, stress...
Feel like take cheese + ham + bread as my breakfast in campus,
but too bad, I don't have a refrigerator in the hostel and refri is not allowed due to the consumption of the
Friend told me there is something called USB fridge, I did research all over the internet,
found out some information,
USB fridge, they use it to cool down soda drinks or keep coffee or tea at warm condition.
this is the sample of diy usb fridge i get from the internet
the most important material of the fridge is peltier and heatsink.
how does it work?
peltier is a good conductor.
when electric apply to the peltier,
one side of the peltier will get hot and the other side of the peltier will get cold
the instruction shows that have to prepare 2 heatsink, one of the heatsink put on the hot side and another heatsink put on the cold side, the heatsink on the cold side helps the soda or cans drinks to chill down faster and the hot side heatsink is to decrease the temperature of the peltier so that the cold side can go to higher temperature and it will last longer.
I not sure what's the lowest temperature it can go.
but it's enough to keep a soda drinks or beer cold.
other than keep drinks cold. peltier also used to make mini fridge for cars or camping fridge, its noiseless and no need to refill gas.
at the same time i found out something interesting when I'm doing research for the mini fridge, I found out some of the extreme overclocker use it to cold down the processor and graphic processing unit.
Saw it on a forum, temperature drops to 7degree celcius when the processor is idling.
They put it between the processor and the heatsink, not sure how they connect the wire for current.
this is the home screen of meego 1.2.9 Community edition
camera working, zoom and dedicated camera button working, same as maemo5, can snap without using the camera button, there is a camera icon on the screen, can snap touching that. Since all lens are dependance, meego still a new operating system, developer still haven't develop any third party software for adjusting n900's camera, In maemo5, there are fcam and blessN900, blessN900 can get from ovi store.
By using fcam, n900's lens
exposure can set from 1/8000s to 1s.
ISO 100 to 3200
White Balance 3000K to 8000K
able to sms and make call. but conversation will have bug when you get too many messages. unable to scroll down.
there are still some bug haven't fix in this edition. I installed it on class 10 4GB microSD. I haven't benchmark the card write and read speed but i guess it does provide good performance, but I still able to feel there is some 'lag'. Can consider to flash it into internal memory and replace maemo5 when it's stable.
Spend hours time to do research and gather information about CSR in different companies in Malaysia for my business management presentation, I'm foundation in INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, why they arrange such course for me!! I know nothing about this subject and I need to present on next Thursday, lecturer not even start the class, how am I going to present.
A government test used to measure the radiation people absorb from their cellphones might underestimate the levels to which most adults and children are exposed, according to a group of doctors and researchers whose stated mission is to promote awareness of environmental health risks they believe may be linked to cancer.
Researchers from the Environmental Health Trust released a report this morning noting that the Federal Communications Commission test to determine radiation exposure is flawed.
The reason for the discrepancy, the group says, is that the process to determine radiation exposure from cellphones involves the use of a mannequin model that they say approximates a 6-foot-2, 220-pound person. Because the model represents only about 3 percent of the population, the authors report, the test will not accurately predict the radiation exposure of the other 97 percent of the population, including children. The group is pushing for a new testing system to measure radiation exposure in a wider range of consumers.
"The standard for cellphones has been developed based on old science and old models and old assumptions about how we use cellphones, and that's why they need to change," said Dr. Devra Davis, former senior adviser in the Department of Health and Human Services under the Clinton administration and one of the report's authors.
A different study cited in the report says a child's bone marrow absorbs 10 times the radiation as an adult. The authors also raise questions about long-term side effects, such as infertility in males who carry phones in their pockets, an exposure unaccounted for in the traditional certification process.
The authors suggest an alternative certification process, one that uses MRI scans to test real humans, including children and pregnant women. Such an approach would provide exposure data on a "Virtual Family," representing all ages, the authors say.
"What the 'Virtual Family' does is it uses anatomically based models that reflect the fact that children's brains are more vulnerable than adults," Davis said.
The Environmental Health Trust is a non-profit organization whose scientists have also leveled their gaze at environmental hazards such as asbestos, tobacco smoke and radiation from medical diagnostic equipment. In addition to Davis, the group also counts among its members Dr. Ronald Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, and Om Gandhi, a former scientist for Motorola who first performed the research establishing acceptable radiation risk. Both were also authors on the report.
The U.S. government has had no specific comment on the report. The cellphone industry group CTIA-The Wireless Association said that because members "are not scientists or researchers on this topic," the news media should contact experts instead.
But whether the low level of radiation from cellphones actually causes cancer is a question that has yet to be answered. "No scientific evidence currently establishes a definite link between [cellphones] and cancer or other illnesses," the FCC says on its website.
Independent scientists also said there are no conclusive studies that cellphone radiation causes cancer.
In May, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer placed cellphones in the same category as lead and engine exhaust, citing the possibility that exposure to cellphone radiation could have long-term health effects. But roughly 30 studies conducted thus far have failed to draw a conclusive link.
One study last year found a slight, statistically insignificant increase in risk in a rare form of brain cancer called glioma among cellphone users. Another study out of the National Institutes of Health Research found cellphone use was associated with increased brain activity. But whether that is linked in turn to an increased risk of cancer has yet to be shown.
Studies Show No Cellphone Radiation Dangers Yet
"While experimental evidence and very limited human studies suggest that we should be cautious, people should realize there are many things we are exposed to every day that also is classified by IARC as possibly carcinogenic," Dr. Peter Shields, chief of Georgetown University Hospital's cancer genetics and epidemiology program in Washington, D.C., told ABC News in May. "The classification used by IARC for cellphones is the lowest of all the carcinogenic classes, and no one should think that cellphones pose the same risk as smoking and asbestos."
Doctors appear to be split on the possibility of risks when it comes to their own cellphone habits. After the International Agency for Research on Cancer announcement in May, ABC News reached out to 92 physicians. Sixty-five of these doctors said they would continue to hold their cellphones up to their ear, but 27 said they would use hands-free devices to minimize their risk.
Although there is no good evidence shows that radiation from cellphone can cause cancer, but there is also no good evidence shows that it doesn't link at all. Source
Lecturers are starting to teach and give assignment, project, presentation. Me, as a leader of my group, went to participant a draw for presentation questions with the others group leader. Too bad there is only two group that don't have any indian members. Since the 2nd week is the Indian's Deepavali, so lecturer want the group that is without Indian to present on the 2nd week. On the first draw, I got number 6 and an Indian classmate got number one, I was like !@#_)(!*!!@#()* , cause lecturer take out 2 numbers and let me and another leader to choose, too bad I got number one . Sigh !
After Nokia announce the spec of nokia n9, some of the article in the website said that N9 is reengineered n900.
-Lets compare about the n900 and n9.
the size of n900 is 110.9 x 59.8 x 18 mm and n9 is 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm.
N900 is 185g and n9 is 135g, N9 is much more lighter because it doesn't have the keyboard like n900 does.
N9 have AMOLED capacitive(very sensitive touchscreen, touchable with conductor) screen but N900 is only using TFT resistive (apply pressure)
N900 : 800 x 480 pixels, 3.5 inches (~267 ppi pixel density) / N9 - 480 x 854 pixels, 3.9 inches (~251 ppi pixel density)
N900 doesn't support multitouch input, N9 does and N9 is using curved gorilla glass, which can make the screen look nicer.
N900 only have one version which is 32GB internal memory and 256mb of ram ( it has microSD slot) , N9 have 2 edition, which are 16GB and 64GB, and it has 1GB of ram.
N9 have all of the wireless, which is b,g,n and N900 only have b and g.
N900 - 5 MP, 2576x1936 pixels, Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, Dual LED flash ( n900 have 3rd party camera software)
N9 - 8 MP, 3264x2448 pixels, Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, dual LED flash ( not sure about it)
N9 and N900 have geotagging function but N9 have face detection and touch focus which N900 don't have, N900 own a dedicated camera button.
N900 comes with MAEMO5 and N9 comes with meego harmattan 1.2 , but N900 capable to install android, meego 1.3 community edition and maemo5.
N900 using ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz, PowerVR SGX530 graphics, and N9 is using 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, PowerVR SGX530 GPU, TI OMAP 3630 chipset, same model of processor but different clock speed, N900 can boost up to 1.15Ghz maxed after installed power kernel.
Conclusion : N900 is more to a hacking device, you can install a few OS on it, meego, maemo, android is mobile os that allow us to make call, n900 also able to install some linux like backtrack5(specialist for penetrating security network), kubuntu, archlinux and it also have a keyboard which allow you to type faster than n9 does. N9 has higher battery capacity compare to N900 , nicer display, responsive touchscreen but it doesn't capable to install android on it, it can use custom kernel, but!! IT's THE WORLD FAMOUS BUTTONLESS phone, so android can't work on it.
Both of the phone have their own advantages and disadvantages. Compare it and think of which type of phone you need, if you like to explore new things, crack wireless network, N900 will do, if you like stylish, portable, nice looking phone, N9 will do. :)
