2007-01-28 22:12:04


1. With regards to overall capacity restoration, TM is on track to recover approximately 80 per cent bandwidth capacity for Internet traffic to US by January 12, 2007 and full restoration is expected by 20 Jan 2007.

Due to the bad weather conditions in that area hampering restoration works, we expect the full recovery of our bandwidth capacity for Int...

I always wondered which console should be getting. Me Wong Menon decided that im gonna get the Wii, Wong's gonna get the XBOX and Menon is going to get the PS3.

Are you hooked on text messages? Whats your figure?

2007-01-25 07:48:25


There are 21 million cell phone users in the country but Malaysians send out a whopping 84 million text messages a day. Assuming each SMS costs an average of 10 sen, Malaysians are spending about RM8.4 million a day on text messages. These figures, released by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, were based on the premise that one person sends four messages a day. But that is a conservative estimate as people send more than four messages a day and some cell phone users are constantly t...

Windows Mobile Apple iPhone Version

2007-01-15 04:35:52


Turns out Apple is not happy about all the publicity. Someone has created a skin for Windows Mobile phones that looks very similar to the new iPhone user interface. Shortly after Paul O'Brian posted a link on an xda-developer forum to the interface, he got a cease and desist letter from Apple's lawyers. The lawyers warn, "The icons and screenshot displayed on your website are copyrighted by Apple, and copyright law explicitly prohibits unauthorized display and distribution of copyrighted works.

When will that day be?

2007-01-12 09:42:59


It has been a baffling question for me as well.. it has been six years .. (six freakin years) that I've been single. It it has struck me for the last 1 year that i need to do something to get a girl.

In my circle of friends, most of my friends have girlfriend or boyfriend and some of them are married as well .. hey .. im still 23 (and some of my friends are married ?? WTF) even when i look at society in general, goin...

We want to reinvent the phone. What's the killer app? The killer app is making calls! It's amazing how hard it is to make calls on most phones. We want to let you use contacts like never before -- sync your iPhone with your PC or mac. Visual voicemail -- wouldn't it be great if you didn't have to listen to five of them to list to the sixth? Just like email you can go directly to the voicemails that interest you. iPhone is a quad-band GSM + EDGE phone." No 3G! "We have WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0. Cingular Sa...
