Barbarella and her weather forecast

Barbarella and her weather forecast

Before MDA or Mediacorp decides to pull the video off Youtube, watch it. For people who cannot view YouTube videos, here is the line: “Oh, my arm says that the rain won’t come today. … But my boyfriend will come tonight. … … Twice! (bimbo pose)” SEXEHH!

Those who are in my friend list on Facebook know that I am an avid sharer, sharing YouTube videos, interesting news, constant status updates, all just to distract them. Just kidding. Anyway, there is a new application in town! Not exactly an application, rather, a website: PostPost.com. This is the browser version of Flipboard. In their words: PostPost is a news aggregator for the social generation, and collates the articles, videos, and photos your friends have found interesting enough to…

Facebook mining

Facebook mining

Apparently, there are scammers/data miners who are exploiting features, or lack of it, on Facebook. For many years, as far back as when Facebook first started, countless of users have been asking or requesting for a similar feature to Friendster’s “Who viewed my profile”. Steadfastly, Facebook held their ground and refuse to allow such a feature to be implemented. Malicious programmers are now increasingly exploiting this stance to mine user data (so I have assumed) from unwitting Facebook users, who…

Be more aware about the technology you are using!

Otherwise you are just embarrassing yourself. theonlinecitizen has just posted, on Facebook, a Google News link on Youth Olympics Game and saying this: virtually all of [the news reported are] from our local news outlets. The world doesn’t seem interested at all. But we’re spending almost S$400 million on it. For propensity sake, a screenshot of the link: On the first glance, this statement seems valid. I decided to click on that link and it does direct me to Google…

CommunicAsia 2010 – The Skype Experience & Giveaway!

Once again, I have to thank Daphne from XPR for the chance to interact with Peter Parkes (as seen explaining the features of Skype on TV) at the Skype booth at CommunicAsia 2010. Just in case you do not know who is Peter Parkes, he leads the social media function at Skype as part of the global communications team. He flew down to Singapore all the way from London. Skype was there to showcase their latest developments so far. From…

Fog of War

Fog of War

The following video shows how fog of war affects a battle, no matter how one sided it is. Questions to be asked: How did the guys up in the air mistook cameras for weapon? There is no way in my eyes that the cameras can be RPGs and no metals showing AK-47 bodies. What are the RoEs in Iraq? In a short overlay of words by a reporter in the video, he mentioned that the American forces has a thing…

DNS and more VPN woes

DNS and more VPN woes

Recently, I have been having trouble with my internet service. Twice a day, I was kept disconnected from the Internet. Each time I checked using Windows Live Messenger’s troubleshooter, it was the DNS (Domain Name System) that caused the trouble. There was nothing much that I could do, except to keep flushing my DNS settings. Which did not do much good anyway. The workaround? OpenDNS. Honestly, I never did care much about DNS even though I know how important it…

Plurk 1: Microsoft 0

Microsoft has suspended a new internet messaging service in China, after it emerged that the site was partially based on code stolen from a rival startup. The site, Juku, launched in November is similar in concept to other online messaging systems like Twitter. But earlier this week the team behindPlurk, a young internet company based in Canada and popular with users across Asia, accused Microsoft of directly copying as much as 80% of the code to run the program.

[Facebook Video] ORD Song to Taylor Swift’s Love Story

[Facebook Video] ORD Song to Taylor Swift’s Love Story

It is here! Not really. I still have 10 more days to ORD. Back to the topic, there is this guy who uploaded a video on Facebook singing about his joy of ORD-ing and getting his pink IC back. His singing is off, but it is just amusing. Enjoy. Oh, by the way, if the video is down, do tell me in the comments. There is no point having the post without the video. Link to the original page.
