Wah Malaysia Boleh

Wah, I thought Malaysia boleh. This morning on CNA I watched how a Malaysian astronaut has gone into space. It must have certainly been a proud moment for all Malaysians.

Are Bluetooth Headsets Cool or Dorky?

Just got this in my morning email from a CNET hot community topic mailing list. Truth be told, I once thought that talking into thin air was indeed weird and, yes, dorky.

Apple is usually known to have a wonderful marketing and PR engine. It seems like…

Today Vanessa had another round of vaccination (how sad to get a jab for her birthday present…). Our regular PD was out on an emergency call, so we had to see another doctor.

Photo Finish with an Attitude Problem

For being an early adopter of the N73 when it was launched last year, I received vouchers for 365 4R photo prints which I could redeem at participating Kodak print shops. This was great, but redeeming the prints has been tiresome (and not to mention Nokia mucked up the sending of my vouchers so that I received them about half…
