Iphone review

Haha... although I don't own Iphone, but my brother does. So, I have a chance to play with it till I bored. :P

So let me give a quick review about the Iphone.
Basically, when u first hold it and see it, it will give u the "OMG... freaking nice" feel. It is build so solid, the screen is so huge, no wonder it cause such a ruckus when it was first launched.

First is the huge touch screen. Damn!! I would never expect a phone will be equip with such a big touch screen... and is so responsive that you won't feel any lag. It makes me keep on play with it over and over again.

However, when it comes to be used as a phone, it is somehow disappointed. Let me list out a few issues of it.

1st - You can't transfer contacts from sim to phone like you usually do in ANY phone. So you have to key in everything one by one. So, think bout it when u have thousand of contacts.

2nd - No MMS (but doesn't matter to me since I don't use much MMS)

3rd - Bluetooth is only used for receiving calls. You cannot transfer file or sync with computer with bluetooth. (=_=)"

Some of the cons are already fixed by 3rd party application, such as installing ringtones into the Iphone, installing 3rd party application and games.

Next, is the thing I found most useful when using Iphone... That is its wifi paring with Safari browser.

Man... I tried before using pocket pc to online browsing website... it feels very awkward and troublesome. But when using Iphone for surfing website. It is FUN!!!!

You can zoom in and out by using your fingers, change the browser to horizontal by just rotating the phone. Everything is done merely using your fingers. This is the first time I found myself enjoy browsing website over playing games. :D

To tell the truth, for the creator of Ipod, Apple's Iphone really make me =_=" when I listen to the sound quality of the music. Well... the loudspeaker is soft and cracks when the volume is put to maximum. As for the headset music quality, it truly lets me down. The bass is not strong and the treble is somehow doesn't perform well enough.

The only thing that amuse me is the browsing of the albums when u rotate the Iphone to horizontal. You use your fingers to flip through the albums and pick the songs you like.

As for the camera, for a 1st timer of making phone, Apple did a great job. It is very decent when you take pictures under good light condition. It doesn't produce much noise. And browsing through the pictures is fun too. Zoom in and zoom out, flip through pictures with your fingers.

In a nutshell, the Iphone is quite a decent gadget. If you own it, it will let you be the center of attraction. However, it certainly lacks some features and needs some more improvement.

Over at Ashwin’s blog, you will find one crazy blog owner!! You can win $2500!! To enter just copy this text and paste it in your blog!! But hurry, this competition will not last long! So get posting!

20 August 2007 is the due date... so hurry up guys and post the same thing...
who knows u might be the lucky winner

Proton BWF World Championship

I must say, this is one freaking unexpected game. All the big shots are all kicked out, such as Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei, Tan Boon Hiong and Koo Kien Kiet, Indonesia's Taufik Hidayat, China's Fu Hai Feng and Cai Yun and so on.

Especially Lee Chong Wei... sigh... as a world ranking number 2 men's single player, he should have come up with a good fight when facing Indonesia's Sony Kudawan. But he lost at 21-9 and 21-11.
Disgusting result and play.

Well, however i have to admit that Sony's play with China's Lin Dan at the finals is really a tight match, some of the smashes, net shot by Sony is awesome... too bad Lin Dan still overrule him.

As for the mix double, the Indonesia pair really give the audience a nice play, they totally pawn China's mix pair, Zheng Bo and Gao Ling.

However, I didn't manage to watch the men's double play. It should be one exciting game.

By the way, here is the champion for each category:
Men's single : Lin Dan (China)
Men's double : Markis Kido and Hendra Sentiwan (Indonesia)
Woman's single: Zhu Lin (China)
Woman's double: Yang Wei and Zhang Jia Wen (China)
Mix double: Nova Widianto and Lilyana Natsir (Indonesia)

Trip To Singapore

It's been a long time since i post something... It's my midterm break, so I've been going here and there, but without pics, because i forgot to bring my digital camera along.

But now I am going to talk bout something i did last semester break. Last semester break I went to Singapore alone to find my brother. Yes alone. A bit odd. But who cares... as long as I am happy with it. Haha.

This is the wealth fountain in Suntec City. It claims that if you walk around the fountain for 1 round... You'll be blessed. Well... I walked round it once, and it just brought me once luck. I won RM250 in Genting Casino last week. Hope the blessing last long enough.

And this is the garden at the top floor of Suntec City (not sure which tower --- Suntec city is consist of 4 towers, and the wealth fountain is situated in the middle of the 4 towers) You can see it in the picture below... although I can't take all the 4 towers, I tried but failed.. -_-"

This is one unique wheel... If I am not mistaken it is near the Raffles City Shopping Complex LR T Station.

And this pineapple looking building is Singapore's Culture and Art Centre, there is some event holding inside but I don't have the chance to take some pics because I am in a rush. Sigh.

Last but not least, If you went to Singapore, how can you don't take some pictures of the statued lion spitting water out of its mouth. lol.

By the way, I am traveling alone because my brother lied to me. He told me he is free to accompany to go around Singapore. But when I bought my train ticket to Singapore, then only he told me his freaking boss gave him work. =_=". So, I have to ventured Singapore myself. Taking LRT and walk all the way under the hot sun, till my legs hurt so much, I am not able to travel for the next day. I went Singapore for 2 days only. So 1 day venture alone, 1 day leg hurt, didn't do much, just watch Ocean 13 which rox so much.

Here are some random pics that I preferred.

Dunno why I am so into macro shots.

Love the tall and high view... maybe I live in Seremban that doesn't have much tall buildings.

Always wonder how people take those pictures where sunlight shine through the leaves and trees. At last I have my own shot. :P

A little Japanese feel of Bonzai Garden at Suntec City.

To Vista or not Vista. That's a question

Hmm.. since Vista is cracked by
pirate group Pantheon, I am thinking of changing into Vista, and test the power of Vista myself. But 1 thing is I am quite of a gamer, so I am kinda afraid because of the incompatibility issue. Another thing is ram. My pc is equipped with 1GB ram... so confirm not sufficient for Vista. But the Aero glass effect and so on really attracts me... If any vista user out there got some advice that can persuade me straight format my xp and buy another 1GB ram.. come and persuade me now

A talk by group CEO of TM

Well... I am actually from mmu mlk campus, but my friend asked me to go for the talk by Datuk Abdul Wahid Omar, current CEO of Telekom Malaysia (TM). Since i got nothing to do i drove myself up to cyberjaya campus just now.
Actually i am kinda anticipating the talk... but it turned out quite boring... the exciting part is the Q&A session... I kinda learned something from it... and btw he showed us a list about the annual payment of CEO in different fields. A CEO from investment banking can freaking earn RM 5,300,000 every year!!!!

Maybe they got "makan" a bit... hahaha...
The talk reach another climax when he is giving out a red motorola slvr as a prize.
We are required to answer 5 questions on the slides and sms to his number... too bad i don't know some of it, because i was kinda dozing off. haha
if not you might see me posing with red slvr

And by the way... the bottom pic is his leng jai pic.. lol

The new mp3 of the year -- Sony NW-E010

Well, this is my first blog, so hope my grammars doesn't make you mad.

I'm going to introduce the Sony NW-E010.

My 1st Sony mp3 player was Sony E00, well it is kinda similar to the new E010, but hell yeah... E010 is equipped with color screen.

It has three different capacities: 1GB, 2GB and 4GB. NW-E010 has a cool 3-lines colour LCD screen that displays album art as well as song information. You can search songs by artist, album, genre or recent transfer. You can also fine tune the music experience with the 5 Band equalizers (Heavy/Pop/Jazz/Unique/Custom) and listen to your favourite radio shows with the built in FM Tuner. The transferring of songs is also simple: you can simply plug the NW-E010 into your PC for direct music transfer with no need for additional cables.

But there is one thing that i don't like is, I have to sync it with Sonic Stage. Because Sonic Stage is kinda not user-friendly, and cannot read Chinese characters as I listen to a lot chinese musics.

However in terms of sound quality, I would it is one of the best in its current price range. Another amusing did by Sony is it's battery life. It takes a mere 1 hour of charging time to get the NW-E010 up and running for another 30 hours.

Wow, ain't that cool??
You must own this device if you are really into mp3, you won't regret it.
