Steve Jobs mempertahankan kelemahan iPhone 4

 CEO Apple, Steve Jobs menerangkan pada media tentang kelemahan iPhone 4 di ibu pejabat Apple di Cuppertino, California.

CEO Apple, Steve Jobs mempertahankan kelemahan iPhone 4 yang baru di lancarkan beberapa bulan lepas dalam satu sidang media di ibu pejabat Apple di Cuppertino, California. Apple berjaya menjual 3 juta iPhone 4 sejak ia di lancarkan.  Kelemahan edisi terbaru iPhone ini dimana talian akan terputus atau pengguna tidak boleh web surfing apabila iPhone 4 ini di pegang dalam cara tertentu. Pegangan ini kini di panggil "Deathgrip".

Ini kerana antena iPhone 4 ini terletak pada bucu bawah kiri. Design terbaru ini bertujuan untuk mengurangkan kesesakan dalam badan iPhone 4 itu tetapi telah menyebabkan penerimaan signal terganggu. Jobs mengatakan tiada telefon yang sempurna. Blackberry & HTC juga mempunyai kelemahan masing-masing.

iPhone 4

Apple menawarkan casing plastik (bumper casing) yang dapat membantu mengelak reception terputus kepada pengguna yang tidak berpuas hati dan akan memulangkan semula duit kepada pengguna iPhone 4 yang inginkan semula wang kerana tidak berpuas hati dengan iPhone 4 mereka.

5 Sen Hike in Petrol Price?

Oil rush

I got a surprising YM message from a friend, "Bo, malam ni isi minyak. Naik 5 sen" (Bo, fill up your car tonight. Price going up 5 sen). Rumors have been going around that the petrol prices will go up and even our Government have mentioned that indeed there will be a price hike in petrol.

So, what will you guys do? Join the queue to fill up on petrol (at the same time, burn more petrol) or just accept it and carry on as usual? I was lucky to fill up this afternoon (before the YM message)..hehehe. Lucky me I guess.

Thanks Nuffnang!

The Spanish Are Champions!

San Iker lifts the World Cup...& as usual Sepp Blatter butts in..sheeshh!

The World Cup ended yesterday after a really dramatic final match between the Dutch and the Spaniards. Andreas Iniesta finally ended it all in the 115th minute. Fifteen cards were branded by English referee, Howard Webb with him sending off John Heitinga after two yellow cards.

The win puts Spain as the 8th country to ever win the World Cup and also ends the label that they are bottlers when it comes to the big stage.

Overall, I think the World Cup as an event this time did not lived up to my expectations but in the end, the best team on the planet won. Congrats Spain!

Paul tells who you should put your squids on

Don't be a fool, put your money on the Spanish to win it

Paul the Octopus has predicted that Spain will be the winner in the FIFA 2010 World Cup South Africa Final match against Holland.

Paul has a 100% record when choosing the matches where Germany were involved. His predictions were that good that even the bookies were using it to set the odds. 

Let's see whether he maintains his 100% record and I bet your top dollar that he'll fetch a high sum if he is on the money.

Adsense paid me again!

I got paid! Yup, Google Ads paid me again (this is my second payment) within 3 months. I got my first payment in April (READ HERE).

This time I got paid USD 112.77 and when I exchanged it, I got back RM361.90. I am fine with that. At least I can pay for Astro & Streamyx.

Adsense Notification through Payment History page

Western Union Money Transfer (Receiving) Form

Again, I cashed out using Western Union Money Transfer. Easy and quick. Within 10 minutes the cold hard cash was in my hands. 

Thanks Google. I'm waiting for this month's payment, which by the way is much more than this one. So, don't let me down Google, I know you won't.

Argies got spanked by zee Germans..

Friedrich celebrates his goal with Klose, Muller & Mertesacker

The Albiceleste were royally spanked by the very entertaining Germans in their FIFA World Cup 2010 quarter finals encounter. They were soundly beaten 4 - 0 with goals from Muller (3'), Klose (68' & 89') and Friedrich (74'). Lionel Messi was kept at bay while Tevez although plowing hard as usual could not breach the Germans sound the defence.

A non factor in the World Cup clash

Muller and Oezil again were the main players in the German team but Bastian Schweinsteiger was the one pulling  the strings in the German midfield. He was chosen as the Man of The Match by FIFA. 

This loss might signal the end to Argentinian legend, Diego Maradona's reign in charge of Argentina. However, one good thing came out of this loss, we won't have to see him running through the streets naked as he promised earlier if the team won this year's World Cup.
