Do we care about our world?

According to news saying that our North pole is melting. And it will completely done at this Sept. Who is going to care about it? Since everyone not very concern about it, we will just wait for "THAT" day to come. Beside solving this issues is everyone effort. No one care, and no one do. I feel sad to see polar bear suffer or even left man kind. There is the documentary figure a polar bear life which have to find food for his child. The polar bear have to continuously swim 3 days in water to find the nearest land in order to hunt sea elephant as food. The ending is the polar bear can't grab any food due to it lack of food, hunger and desperation. Drive him to kill without knowing that he chase all the sea elephant back to water. He only able to kill them on land.

Comparing this 2 printer from Sony and Canon. Same price and almost same features. The only different is canon enable user to bring it out and operate with battery.

I compare the price of printing per paper after my long though.

Sony - $36 for 3 color ink cartridges with 120 sheets photo paper in one package.
Canon - $31 for 3 color ink cartridges. $19.90 for 100 sheets photo glossy paper.

Bill Gate Retire Today

Founder of Microsoft going to retire today. People is more important than company. As bill gate step down, we will see what is the change in this giant company.

On 2003, bill gate send an email to his team complain about the user friendliness of it software development. Detail as below,

"I am quite disappointed at how Windows Usability has been going backwards and the program management groups don’t drive usability issues,” says Gates in a 2003 email.

Gates wanted download Moviemaker and buy the Digital Plus pack, so he, “went to They have a download place so I went there.”

And, “The first 5 times I used the site it timed out while trying to bring up the download page. Then after an 8 second delay I got it to come up"

In fact it is more like a puzzle that you get to solve. It told me to go to Windows Update and do a bunch of incantations.

This struck me as completely odd. Why should I have to go somewhere else and do a scan to download moviemaker?

So I went to Windows update. Windows Update decides I need to download a bunch of controls. (Not) just once but multiple times where I get to see weird dialog boxes.

Doesn’t Windows update know some key to talk to Windows?

Then I did the scan. This took quite some time and I was told it was critical for me to download 17megs of stuff.

This is after I was told we were doing delta patches to things but instead just to get 6 things that are labeled in the SCARIEST possible way I had to download 17meg.

So I did the download. That part was fast. Then it wanted to do an install. This took 6 minutes and the machine was so slow I couldn’t use it for anything else during this time.

What the heck is going on during those 6 minutes? That is crazy. This is after the download was finished.

Then it told me to reboot my machine. Why should I do that? I reboot every night — why should I reboot at that time?

“So after more than an hour of craziness and making my programs list garbage and being scared and seeing that is a terrible website I haven’t run Moviemaker and I haven’t got the plus package.

“The lack of attention to usability represented by these experiences blows my mind. I thought we had reached a low with Windows Network places or the messages I get when I try to use 802.11. (don’t you just love that root certificate message?)

This seem to be happen to me on Nokia Music download website. Nokia try to take over Itune by open market on those country that apple not yet reach. Nokia want to attack those "NON-IPOD" user by offering MP3 download straight to the PC. When I try to buffer a song from it website. It fail and when I wanna to test a preview. It force me to register an account. Nevertheless, Apple do force us install it ITUNE before all the zero timing buffer music and video come to the picture. At least it give me what I expect. Even I try to download a movie trailer in HD format which have 102MB size. It only took me less that 10 second to download into my MAC.

Time is limited for everyone. What ever way can reduce time consume. User will stick to that way. Software engineer always tend to go on their way of format which forget who is the one using the software.

Garget Time

Bought this wireless router without antenna. It look very nice but I have a hard time connect it to my MUM pc due to it frequency not strong enough. I'm not sure is either my neighbour using stronger signal like wireless N or because of the absent of antenna. It is not going to work for me and I so disappointed.
This cutey Photo Printer from Canon is not the next great thing but it seem like user friendly. It look cute to bring along and have space to put it accessories. I still looking for it refill kits in order to compare to Sony 30 cents printing cost.

SonyEricsson again... This time equip with 8 mega pixel, GPS and WiFi. It surely can match with IPhone. It took away the irritating joystick. Slim on it build and beauty on it look. Button still best for those people who wish to SMS while driving or walking on the street. It will arrive in the end of this year.

Software is very important to our life

The TV that you watching, the MP3 player that you using, the computer that you facing everyday. Every single equipment in your life involve software. I would like to spend some of my time to learn how to program.
I was misunderstand with ITUNE long ago. Is because run on windows is different from MAC. It created an ITUNE store in MAC. When ITUNE run on windows, it only depend on the folder that you assign. Files which you deleted on ITUNE will directly made impact on that folder. ITUNE will duplicate another set of song on it own folder which locate in your profile/music folder. I was so angry in the past because ITUNE deleted all my MP3 in my PC. Software behave differently when they run on different platform.

Apple just one step ahead of others.

Below is the Time Capsule that act like a backup server as well as network base station plus print server or you can add additional harddisk.

As the price of computer getting lower and lower. Data storage become the main focus. Looking at Linksys who is the network giant. They never come out anything similar to this which contain an USB port for printer. Sooner or later when people realize how important is data backup. That will be too late.

One Principle for all man kind

INTEREST... this is the word for all of us. When you have interest on the job that you work on. You will put in all your effort to get thing done. You will spend all your time to do research to get thing done in a better way. You will try to change everyone thinking in order to work together. That is what I trying so hard to achieve right now. But thing seem like don't follow the man will. No matter how much hard work I put in. No matter how much I do for others. No matter how much rubbish I put into my own account and get it done without others known.

"If I see something I don't like, I try to change it, if cannot change it, I change the position of looking at it, and then by seeing it at different angle, I might be able to change it; or I might find some good in it that I can use, which might make it change itself."

Company important or the one who lead the company?

Michael Dell pass him CEO to Kelvin that he think is the most suitable choice for DELL company. Under Kelvin 3 years of manage, HP take over DELL to become No.1 PC maker in the world. It force Michael Dell to make a come back on January last year. 
You can see how bad is Steve Job health situation on WWDC. Everyone worry that who will be able to take over his position. I myself is one of them. Company without a good leader is just an empty shell. Is because Steve have a dream to fulfill. Is because he want to improve our life. Is because he want everything to be the way he way. That why APPLE can success. Who will have such a big dream and long lasting love toward this company? He is the one who build it up and I think no one but only he himself can manage it well.
Citibank retrench 6,500 worldwide. Who have to responsible for this move? What can a company achieve by retrench people? Do you think talent will come again in the future
? Wise thinking...

This cute little pig was rescue at the earthquake zone after 36 days. Miracle to be alive but reduce weight from 150 kg to 50 kg only. His name "朱坚强" (PIG IS STRONG)

Wa... 2 more functions that I enjoy on my MAC. When I not too sure about the meaning of word. I can simply call up DICTIONARY to check on it. And when I would like to translate some chinese back to english. I can call up TRANSLATOR that build into MAC OS X. Great feature, and it act like a transplant layer on top of what I doing. I can refer to the word without switching it over and over again. SWEET

Singtel IPHONE reservation. So sad, only 16GB is white in color to suit my macbook. Have to spend more liao.

When you do the thing you LOVE?

Do you ever have a dream of doing the thing you want for your whole life? What is love? Love is a power that will push you forward and do whatever to achieve something or protect something from hurting it. Lot of example you can see from the CHINA earthquake.
So by doing the thing you love will make you happy but how about MONEY? Yes, that is the main question for most of the people but not those who success in their life. Steve Job spending his life to make better technology for people. His love to see people enjoy his product. That is why his product always so easy to use. Same here, I enjoy writing my blog this way even no one going to view. At least, I love to do so and I have a diary to refer back all my thinking.

2 improtant things

First of all, NBA final result is out. Disappointed but give me an idea of life. LA laker is strong when Kobe can perform. But how about having a team like Boston who can help each other and score average on every single one? Team work is still the most important thing that appear on sport and work also. Don't depend too much on that particular person, also we got to perform in the same level.

Secondly, Firefox 3.0 is out. Everyone rushing for this new thing and end up the network is down. It prove that everyone is waiting for the new thing. So does the iphone phenomena, it will rock the singapore handphone market for sure.

What a day when I got to work till 3am. Anyway, good day ahead. Everything is going to be fine when my eye reopen in tomorrow morning. Cheers

Poor and Rich

As the oil pricing get higher and higher. Who will suffer more? Is always the poor and not the rich. Every month already spend most of money on all the expenses. And now still have to folk up more for this. As I can see those smaller HDB flat always have more clothes hang outside the windows then those bigger flat. It mean that more people stay in smaller flat which bigger flat only occupy by less people. World is unfair, so who can make it fair? Is right on your hand. You create your own future.

About the PC show that host in suntec city last week. News paper keep saying that a lot of people shop over there even the economic is not that good. But do they know that IT is already part of us. Is like everyday have to go supermarket and buy food to eat? Who can live without IT in this modern world. The TV that you watching, the MP3 that you listening, the PC that for your work, the handphone that you communicate with others, many many more that involve in IT.

life isn't simple

Every move and decision we have in our life. It will directly affect our entire life for sure. I believe what we do now will affect our life 3 years later. Just like my decision to move from Sales back to IT in citibank. All along treasury is my target. And finally I got it here. You can say is my luck or my hard work. I don't really care how pp thing of me. But who don't ever need luck in their life? Even the best soccer player also need to score in order to prove their value.

Beside being the first is the easiest thing to achieve. But being on top always. That will be a challenge for sure. Scoring a beautiful goal in a game to impress audience is easy. But to score it everytime when in need. Who can ever achieve this?

No path is sure right or sure wrong. It depend on how you work on. Being a challenge or give up, is all in your mind. The dips is always there. But can you identify the value of the dips. Will it be too much to scarify. That is all you need to think of.

Thank you my boss. Beside the Value of this GUNDAM and the effort that you put in to choose this gift. I appreciate it.

With Iphone doing all this push mail, push calendar and push address. Blackberry monopoly game is ending soon. Apple promise to give user remote wipe off machine. And the greatest thing is with the 3G network which enable user to surf net faster. Who is the winner? The wiser will know.

Not too late for me (APPLE)

By cutting half of the price on the phone. Steve really wish to push hard on this technology BEAUTY. Not so much about sales but the technology behind. We not ready for 3G for so long. Since Iphone 3G step in. The game is changing. Faster speed and multimedia. Email and stay contact with each other.

The thing is impress me one more time. By have the detect system which enable you to locate your friend around you. Technology no longer drifting us apart. With the SDK software that so easy to use for developer to enhance our life. We are just too lucky to be here with APPLE.

Reading book is fantastic

Steve really someone great in this century. He know that by combine all the hardware, software and services together into one package to sell out will be a new model for today business.
Our world change from a product, to modify it and finalize. When something no longer be able to modify anymore. We can only change the beauty in it and on it. Car is what we not able to change. You can see how they evolve. Microsoft have it great ambition to conquer the software world. But by supporting so many different kind of hardware company. They have to work extra hard on their software in order to make it compatible and crush free.
Apple on the other hand have it own strength. Is a kind of Monopoly but also provide the user a better way to deal with problem. We know that digital age is coming. And what i can predict here is someday we will be able to use a smart phone to control your home PC. Whereby your home pc is the center of everything. You can use your PC to transfer music to the living hall HiFi set. You can transfer HD video to the plasma TV. You also able to control all the lighting in your home as well as the video camera. Everything will go wireless... but who can give all this promise to user? You think microsoft X cisco Linksys wireless network able to conquer this world? or using apple airport with mac? only the wise will know.

Apple Thinking!!!

Finally I am able to think like apple. I agree with what they doing. Thinking different. Lot of thing learn from the book I read.
itune, which I hate to use in the past. Is a master of organize all your song on your Computer as well as your IPOD. This design is enable user to enjoy music at home and on the go whereby you don't have to recopy everything to your MP3 player. Like any other company do as APPLE is doing the auto sync.
Most Mac not able to upgrade and machine seal tightly which make engineer hard to upgrade or doing some troubleshooting. Why apple do this way, they restrict user to put in untested hardware. Untested hardware with untested driver will conflict with the OS. OS become unstable and easy to crash which always happen on PC.

Inside Steve's Brain

Is a very good book that uncover steve's history. Even force to get out from APPLE on 80's. He manage to make a come back after 11 years and create a CURVE that no one will able to reach. Mac OS X took 3 years to redo. Is redo... not modify. Such a long years that no one can afford to do the same to compare with it. Even GIANT microsoft, they only do some touch up. Lot of thing can learn from him. GREAT

Something great that I achieve in LIFE

Other thing is I manage to get my PC run MAC OS on it. Woo.. that is fun. But still have some graphic and network issues which need time to fine tune it. Anyway, I enjoy my life. Create things and achieve some impossible. GREAT life ahead.

After man fall in love with woman

After man fall in love with woman

He will write poem
She will dreaming

She will always think of him
He will think of others lady

Throwing tantrum is her secret weapon
Telling lie is his secret weapon

Her happiness is because he love her
His happiness is because she worth to love

Woman should have big boo
Man should have big and fat wallet

Kissing man is woman happiness
Kissing woman is man “mouth enjoyment”

Smart woman will married to a man that love her
Stupid woman will married to a man that she love

Man feel heart pain when they are lover
Man feel headache when they are married couple

Swear(Fa Shi) to woman is a joke(ke xiao)
Get rich(Fa Chai) for woman is cute(ke ai)

When a man want divorce, because he love his wife no more
When a woman want divorce, because her husband love her no more

Woman stay single, people think that she got problem
Man stay single, people think that he got ambition

而實際情況是: (In fact)
She can’t find a good partner
He can’t find a partner

Woman will gamble on relationship
Man will gamble on Married

Woman can tolerate on unhappiness married. But not relationship
Man is just opposite

Woman always hope that he is her last MAN
Man always hope that he is her first MAN

Windows 7

Is no big deal at all. How about using a mouse to click on the picture to get rotate? Using scroll to Zoom in and out? They trying to take out the mouse... but think of it. How about try to reach your screen using your hand right now. Isn't it tiring when doing photo editing? Technology is meant to get thing done faster. Not wasting time on fancy picture and useless function.
