Life Is Good

Tired of waiting for the coveted iPhone which never seems to be coming to our shores (the market here is too small to be on Apple's marketing radar), and not willing to part my money for made-in-China clones, I thought the next best thing for me to get is the new and very sexy LG KS20 touch-screen PDA phone.

Here are some pics taken to show off this sexy little beast!

The minimalist stylish design is just shouting out for you to touch it, caress it, and own it! It comes with a 2.8" 256K TFT Touchscreen and runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Professional.

It measure 99.8 x 58 x 12.8mm and weighs a mere 92g with battery attached. Here is a side profile to show you how thin it is. I haven't even peel off the green colored factory seal on the side.

The only gripe one could complain about this sleek number is that the glossy finish is definitely a finger print magnet!

Yes, this looks better. Not a task a wet tissue paper can't deal with.

I'm just showing off some first impression pics and is not trying to do a product review. For more details of the of phone and its technical specification, visit LG mobile homepage.

How To Spot A Fake iPod

It is said that imitation is the best form of flattery, but in Apple’s case, I’m sure they would rather not receive such flattery. Apple has sold more than 140 million iPods worldwide and remains the MP3 player of choice in the global market.

Clone copies of iPod suffle, iPod nano and the bigger iPod classic have been popping up in store, targeting at consumers who want to look cool without dishing out too much moolah. The clones or imitations sell for about 30% of the original iPod price and retailers willing to take the risk are making lucrative earnings from flogging these knock-offs. These fakes are hot stuff in more than one sense of the word. They are a hit contraband.

If you thought you have hit a bargain of the century when the salesman offers you one of those “Lie-Pod”, you better think twice. Caveat emptor.

Beware of the dupes and look for these tell-tale signs to spot the fakes:

The click wheel of the iPod should be touch-sensitive. Most fake iPods have click wheels that look the same but fail to react when you swipe your finger across them.

There should be an iPod Dock Connector port for iPod-compatible speakers and headphones at the bottom of the genuine device. As this proprietary port is difficult to replicate, most fakes have a mini-USB port.

Some makers of fake iPods offer extra functions such as video viewing capabilities, FM tuner, voice recorder and e-books. These functions are not available in the real thing.

The real McCoy should display an image of the Apple logo the moment you switch it on. Other images like an animated Welcome screen or Chinese characters or logos are a tell-tale sign the gadget is fake.

The genuine player should be packed in a transparent plastic box with the Apple and iPod logos emblazoned on it. Fake iPods are usually sold in clear plastic cases without any markings.

The above tips are by no means exhaustive as copy-cats are evolving all the time to circumvent the eagle-eyed consumers. We can never say enough of this: Caveat emptor.

Win Brand New 8GB iPod Touch

What does happiness means to you? This is not a trick question and there is no right or wrong answers to it. Happiness can mean different things to many people. Having love, wealth, and power or simply being able to wake up to a brand new day everyday in good health can mean happiness. Regardless of what happiness means to you, you can be sure that we feel happiest when our happiness is shared. What’s the point for anyone to be wealthy but lead a lonely existence with no one to share, right?

Sharing happiness all around is what the I Share Happiness blog, which is run by students from University of Asia and the Pacific set out to achieve and they envisioned the blog to be a venue of positivism. They are holding a contest where a lucky dude stands to win a brand new 8GB iPod Touch for free.

This contest is open to everyone (worldwide), for those who don't have blogs and for those who have blogs. Points can be earned by following different actions and one entry will be issued for every 15 points earned.

The deadline of this contest will be on March 24, 2008 at 12:00 am Manila Time (GMT +08:00 Hong Kong). The winner will be drawn randomly and announce on March 25, 2008 at 6:00pm Manila Time (GMT +08:00 Hong Kong). If you don’t win the grand prize, it’s okay because there will be 2 mystery consolation prizes to be claimed as well.

Life Before The Birth of Computer

Life was so much simpler before the times of the computers!

A keyboard was a piano

A mouse pad was where the mouse lived

A program was a TV show

An application was for employment

A virus was the flu

A web was a spider's home

A cursor used profanity

A hard drive was a long trip on the road

Memory was something that you lost with age

And if you had a 3.5" floppy, you just hoped nobody found out!

On The Run

The mugshots are everywhere - on the local daily newspaper, posters, flyers, websites, blogs, cell phone alerts and Interpol. Yes, even Interpol had issued an urgent worldwide security alert, or Orange Notice, after the escape of an alleged leader of the Jemaah Islamiyah terrorist group from a detention center in Singapore on 27 Feb.

But he's nowhere to be found....yet.
