MEEGO 1.2.9 CE N900

 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
  • Manual Focus
  • 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.

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.

FCC Test to Measure Cellphone Radiation Flawed, Group Says

Video
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.

2nd day of 2nd sem.

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.

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 !

N900 vs N9

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. :)

Denmark introduces world's first food fat tax

Denmark has introduced what is believed to be the world's first fat tax - a surcharge on foods that are high in saturated fat.
Butter, milk, cheese, pizza, meat, oil and processed food are now subject to the tax if they contain more than 2.3% saturated fat.
Some consumers began hoarding to beat the price rise, while some producers call the tax a bureaucratic nightmare.
Others suggest that many Danes will simply start shopping abroad.
Danish officials say they hope the new tax will help limit the population's intake of fatty foods.
However, some scientists think saturated fat may be the wrong target.
They say salt, sugar and refined carbohydrates are more detrimental to health and should be tackled instead.

Abortion pill sold openly in Malaysia.

In the recent days, more and more people sharing photos about abortion in facebook.
Abortion is illegal in Malaysia, but some of the plan parentshood clinic are still doing this.
But WORST thing is, there are abortion pill in the market.
Misoprostol is available in Malaysia, it's only prescribe as gastric ulcer medicine(Cytotec), but it's also able to end early pregnancy.
With some research on the internet, some of them able to get it from pharmacy without prescription.
Government should put more attention on this kind of medicine to avoid the amount of abortion.

I'm just an ordinary blogger, I doesn't encourage anyone to do abortion, but the choice is in your hand, anything please refer to doctor and don't take action by yourself. People around you is always willing to help you get through hardship.
